1916 former Labour Leader and PM of Malta Dominic Mintoff was born.
He was one of the greatest Politicians of the last century (died in 2013)
One could not agree with him on many things but he was always true to the country and its people.
He fought the Brits, and the corrupt Church of the 1950s 1960s
He brought the vote to all (one vote for every over 18)
Children allowances
40 hr week
minimum wage
Pensions
Bonuses of all workers
Factories
Started the Air Malta

I‘m sorry, but you have a weird sense of "democratically [!] elected"...

I know you’re Polish and MAYBE rightfully a little bitter (maybe not) - but there wasn’t much democracy involved in the Weimar Republic towards the end - and it got continually worse...

His party though was kind of elected, yes, and by no means were Germans not widely supporting him at the beginning...

220 years ago today, was the end of the French blockade...
When my forefathers got rid of those french bastard , tyrants , godless and thieves

The Siege of Malta, also known as the Siege of Valletta or the French Blockade (Maltese: L-Imblokk tal-Franċiżi), was a two-year siege and blockade of the French garrison in Valletta and the Three Cities, the largest settlements and main port on the Mediterranean island of Malta, between 1798 and 1800. Malta had been captured by a French expeditionary force during the Mediterranean campaign of 1798, and garrisoned with 3,000 men under the command of Claude-Henri Belgrand de Vaubois. After the British Royal Navy destroyed the French Mediterranean Fleet at the Battle of the Nile on 1 August 1798, the British were able to initiate a blockade of Malta, assisted by an uprising among the native Maltese population against French rule. After its retreat to Valletta, the French garrison faced severe food shortages, exacerbated by the effectiveness of the British blockade. Although small quantities of supplies arrived in early 1799, there was no further traffic until early 1800, by which time starvation and disease was having a disastrous effect on health, morale, and combat capability of the French troops.

455 years ago the Siege of Malta by the Ottoman Turks ended with the Grace of Our Lady... thus saving the Whole of Europe from being taken by the Ottoman Rule

https://youtu.be/uyhy3K4S-E0

Also on the same day 1943. (When we Celebrate the Birth of Mary Mother of God)
Italy surrendered and that meant the end of World War II for Malta

I’m under the impression that the Great Siege ended on the 11th September 1565. The night of the 7th was the beginning of the end when the Sicilian fleet arrived in Malta.

The end of the two year French Blockade in Valletta is remembered today too but that actually happened on 4th September 1800.

I think the only one that actually happened on the 8th was Italy’s surrender in 1943:

Btw I’m sure you know this as you are much more familiar with Maltese history than I am, but I found out recently that despite the very long list of foreign rulers in Malta throughout history, Malta always remained, from after the rule of the Arabs in the 11th century up until Napoleon took over in 1798, part of the Kingdom of Sicily. Quite interesting that a 700 year history has left little affinity with between Malta and Sicily; most of us feel much more of an affinity with the British, pretty much the only other monarchy that ever ruled us.

Sicilian culture made us what we are or were
Christianity, feasts, fireworks, cuisine

About the 8. True but it was on this day that the Turks packed and started retiring back home

Also most if not all Religions orders came from Sicily with or after the Normans took over from the Arabs
Remember Maltese were all Muslims or the majority although some of them still kept their Faith underground until Normans came.

We take it for granted cause it was always with us that is why we think only about the British empire and think that they made us what we are.

Later on I will tell you what I saw recently on a tv prog on what the brits did when they came officially in 1813
Fish and chips mentality

This is where it all happened both in 1565 & 1943

The Monument which commemorates the events from 1565

Must say the monument looks strange to me now. I’ve gotten used to the Daphne memorial there.

That was not the place for a shrine.
Sorry if I am to shock you: but I was never against those who cleaned it from Daphne memorial thingies from time to time...

P.S Daphne things were put aside on the right hand side (facing the monument) of the monument
