Malta Detention regime of Irregular Migrants criticised

http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-201394
illegal immigrants on the Island of Malta, has become an insurmountable problem for the Maltese Government to the extent, that legislation had to be passed to muzzle in on the increasing public outcry to contain and reverse the increasing arrivals of illegal Migration. The new legislation has the aim of containing public opinion from being expressed openly, where the Authorities will be able to prosecute anyone that voices his opinion regarding the scale of illegal immigrants now roaming the tiny island, under undefined racial hatred laws.

The Islands are just an outcrop, in the middle of the Mediterranean sea , and a front line of illegal migration crossing of unfortunate people, that keep being forgotten by the International Community. They have a right to a decent living for themselves and their families as any in the Western or Asian Countries.

The problems for Malta and the Maltese, arises, due to the size of the islands. with an area of 316 sq km (121 sq miles) and a population density of 1282 per sq km (3339 per sq mile), population 2007 estimate of 418,285 and with the arrival of new illegal immigrants superseding the official National Birth rate, on a Country with no natural resources. It is becoming a real strain on the Islands.
The disappointment is further rubbed in on the Maltese population, that after doing their utmost, in getting illegal migrants to shore safely from dangerous crossings on flimsy, un-seaworthy boats. The united Nations agency UNHCR, keeps criticizing the Maltese Government for not doing enough and calls on the immediate release of undocumented, medically unscreened and unproven Country of Origin migrants.
One always thought that the United Nations is there to support the World Community, in getting Countries the Stability and improvement in conditions for their citizens. In Malta, the UN is being seen a de-stabilization medium of our once charitable Nation which is now being overburdened by the financial cost to the Maltese community, that have to outlay the cost for Medical, educating and housing these poor souls and abandon the care for the local less fortunate citizens.
The burden is further instilled by the un-willingness of the Maltese Government and other Political parties to crack down on employers , that abuse the employment system, and hire illegal immigrants, granting illegal migrants inferior work conditions and salaries, escaping Tax and Social Security payments, while these same migrants are allowed to collect Government financial aid thereby creating an unfair employment competition with the local workers.
Although , Malta is part of the EU, the smallest and most populated Country of the EU, the same EU has not been forth coming with assistance to which it is the problem creator for Malta’s migrant problems. Legislation within the EU is very soothing on paper, in that humans have rights to be respected, but then the EU condemned these people to a life without a future on a small island where they do not even want to be, as their aim was to build a future on mainland Europe. Even in the EU’s speeches, there are recommendations for European Governments to legalize these illegal immigrants due to the unsustainable future growth to the economy because decreasing workforce in Europe and the aging population then they do not want to take any of these Migrants to help in building their future ecconomy, altough the EU wants to take credit and want to be looked at as if they are chapions and saviours to refugee and illegal migrants in the World’s eye…… only on paper though. The EU’s support to border Countries has been a matter of throwing some money at the problem and a just one Country (Holland) taking a ridiculous amount of refugees to start a new life in their Country. The USA (not part of the EU), has taken in solidarity support to Malta more than the EU Countries combined, under the assistance of the American Ambassador H.E. Ms. Molly Bordanaro.
The United Nations agency, UNHCR, has been a failure, due to the fact that Countries part of the UN assembly, are not doing enough in condemning Countries not respecting Human basic laws. The Secretary General in the UN is oblivious of problems being created in other Countries overburdened with refugee and illegal migrants on their host Country. He never, ever once sited praise or visited Malta for our efforts in saving migrants from sure death in the deep Mediterranean Sea. Not once has the EU member states took seriously the plight, of their member state or the real wish of these migrants, to see the strain being created on the Islands and the migrants. Instead we are continually being criticized for our genuine efforts in easing the hardship for these unfortunate people.
In the Malta newspapers there are daily reports, especially during the April-Odomain=”tag”>

<![CDATA[It is getting rather sickening, seeing PN and PL fighting each other to death like a pair of gladiators in a Political Coliseum. I have seen the PN Political spot on TV, which practically says that the PL are working against the interest of Malta and the Maltese. I will never believe that ever, and people with some gray matter for brains can never believe that the PL and PN are actively seeking against Malta and the Maltese. I rather believe that both the PN and PL don’t like to take long term views and actions beyond their five year term in office, which means that their priorities for Malta and the Maltese is somewhere down the line in their priority list. Their first priority is getting or retaining power at all costs. Second on their list is definitely to please those that matter (EU, NGO’s, Financial Party Supporters, and The Media).Thirdly what personal financial gain they are going to get from Politics, then maybe it’s Malta and the Maltese.

What irks me most in Maltese Politics is the lack of accountability of retaining the status quo, in other words limiting our representation to PL or the PN. Let’s face it, everybody seems to know that a few months before any election (General, Local Counsel and MEP), they both start to listen to the public, not to address them, just to address their election campaign accordingly. Everybody also knows that mostly it is based on lies, deceit, or omitting anything of relevance. It is also almost predictable that if the electorate wants to arrive at some sort of true picture of PL and PN intentions, the direct opposite of what they say is almost spot on of what will actually happen.

Accountability is so frustrating, that it begs the question of how truly democratic Malta is. I had visited the website transparency.org (see report 2008) to see how Malta ranks on the corruption perception index for 2008 and was worried for the fact that we rank as number 36 with two other Countries Botswana and Puerto Rico with an index of 5.8 (10 being non corrupt and 0 being corrupt).What is even more worrying is the fact that in 2007 we ranked at number 33 albeit still 5.8 on the scale index (report 2007) . Then I started thinking and realized how rampant our Political system is in corruption. First let us take the last general election, everybody knows that Enemalta belongs to the Maltese Government, He is also the appointee of its directors, everybody also knows that the bills in that election year where delayed by months. Everybody also knows that just after the election all electric bills started coming out of enemalta like hot cakes with hefty bills. I would classify that as corruption to the tune of buying votes by not issuing the bills at their appropriate time for political gain, throwing a lot of the public under financial stress for the sake of PN’s political gain. Same when the PN says that Malta gained a lot financially from the EU in the tune of over a billion Euros. Where the hell did they spend them? Roads – definitely NO as they are in a worse state as when the British left, they might say the Airport to Ghajn Tuffieha road – er NO that was done under the Italian Protocol agreement, where the new Mater Dei Hospital – NO that was under our own budget, the Airport- NO, Power Station-NO, the half baked Cirkewwa sea terminal-NO, where the hell did they go? Can anybody please enlighten me as to the Billion+ euros whereabouts? All I know is that political party’s finances (both PL and PN) are well hidden from the public scrutiny, to such an extent that now there is the VAT department being investigated of fraud by some of its employees that made off with what is described as millions that were lost in public revenue, with businesses and businessmen helping in the police investigation. Accountability – None. Same goes for NGO and Charity groups, I could not  find one that has an audited published account that I could see on their websites. One has one for 2007 but when you look into it there is hardly anything that gets it anywhere near that can be classified as a financial audited report – some of them are getting public grants and exempted from taxation- So should I as a tax payer expect at least as a minimum, an audited published account as to how these groups that benefitted from these grants, donations and tax relief initiatives have spent these benefits, a real break down on how money was spent and from were it was received- that will never happen in Malta. Corruption comes under many different shades and definitions, including not legislating in favor of a whistle blowers act that protects person/s  reporting abuse, it also means taking immediate action when the ombudsman clearly stipulates an abuse has been committed, it also means that when the EU sends a reasoned opinion and threaten to take Malta to ECJ (European Court of Justice) the Government does not wait till 11th hour to take action just for the sake of financial gain like in cases of departure tax and car vat registration and others.

PL has nothing to be proud of either as people had asked for change in their leadership years ago, but the corrupt elements that held the PL hostage for personal gain is a well known fact. The cost was that there was no political alternative to PN to the detriment of Malta’s democracy. The PN’s cunningness to betray the voters at all cost at the last general election is manifested with the JPO case. They have both betrayed the public by not allowing Political competition, they manipulate the media, they both have their deceitful propaganda machine that excludes other political views from making headway, they have secret agreements between PN and PL as was the case on illegal immigration and was recently declared by the PN as gloves are off now that PL has abandoned the agreement. The ‘Independent’ Malta Broadcasting Authority is made up of PL and PN agreed officials, ex-members of parliament that where voted out by the electorate is rewarded by either high profile positions and given a golden handshake from taxpayers money (no different from rewarding failed banks CEO’s in Europe and America). Superficial restructuring like what happened in the transport system, where liberalizing for competition means hefty tariffs on those entering the market to protect the status quo. And much more, it is a political circus more than a free market economy based on democracy. One day we will learn that it is for the common good of our Country and to the Maltese benefit to ‘liberalize’ the political system as the power will only then be handed down to the people and hold those employed by the taxpayer to account.

Jenny Mackenzie: Harsh truth is that aid hurts rather than helps

Published Date: 19 May 2009

By Jenny Mackenzie

DIG deeper into your empty purse, the letter said. A chief of one big charity urged us, in a letter to this newspaper, to keep up all of our international aid programmes, despite the dark days.

“We must continue to help Africa”, the writer remonstrated, in case you were thinking of cutting back. But let’s just consider that for a minute. Another eloquent writer, African, internationally educated, with a CV to die for, has just shocked the World with a claim, backed up with pages of facts, that international aid isn’t working. She says that charity, and lots of it, is actually killing her country of birth, Zambia, and most of the whole continent of Africa.

Dambisa Moyo’s book, Dead Aid, is provocative, shocking, brutally honest, and brandishes some very harsh facts indeed. It’s not the first time these things have been said, but this time it’s an African who is saying it. Perhaps it’s time to sit up and listen.

“Aid has actually worsened poverty,” says Dambisa. The most aid-dependent countries, she says, have exhibited an average annual growth rate of -0.2 per cent. She notes that when aid flows to Africa were at their peak, for the last 30 years of the 20th century, the poverty rate actually rose from 11 per cent to a staggering 66 per cent.

“Transferring large amounts of money from one government to another encourages corruption, creates aid dependency, kills off exports and disenfranchises Africans,” says Dambisa. Underpinning all of this is a much more serious problem. “Many Africans,” says Dambisa “are now addicted to aid.”

Please stay calm. It’s an emotive subject for sure. We appear to live on the wealthier side of the world. It’s hard to bear that there are others starving and suffering in countries much poorer than our own. Many of us give, generously, sometimes in compassion, sometimes to address our guilt. But have we really thought this through? Just who is that helping?

Musician and trained counsellor Sylvain Ayite was born in Senegal. Now father of a son and a daughter, Sylvain lives in Edinburgh. He would like us to stop seeing the African continent and Africans as separate from ourselves, the problems as being “over there” rather than “over here”.

“We need to focus on education, not aid,” he says. That education should be as much of ourselves, as anyone outside our own borders, says Sylvain.

“We need to reflect on what we really mean by ‘helping’. Who are you helping by being the ‘helper’? What is your authority? If we are not reflective, one just becomes the person with power, a gratifying position for the giver. But there should not be two sides that remain the same, those who give and those who receive. This will never lead to change, to a transformation where there is health and empowerment on both sides.”

Celebrity giving – it’s a touchy subject too, but actually “irrelevant, adding only very negative PR” to the main debate, says Dambisa.

Bono and Sir Bob Geldof have brought a glamour to giving that rocks the emotions. When G8 came to Scotland, it was soul-searching for all of us. Waves of well-wishers poured off the trains with bicycles and backpacks. They cared, it was moving and it created a tide of euphoria that has carried us all along ever since. We can do this thing. We can slash the debt, we can even the inequalities, we can kick poverty’s ass. We can make poverty history.

But that’s not how it has happened. On the contrary, things are not getting better, but worse, and more people are questioning our rationale. Bono lectured one audience about Africa. He slow hand clapped. “Every time I clap” he said piously, “A child dies”.

“So stop clapping!” quipped one audience member. He had heard enough.

These are hard things to hear. It’s not very nice, but there can be sharp lessons to learn. “Gimme the money”. It can get that crude. “What do you mean – how do I plan to use it?” It can get that arrogant.

For every negative tale of cynicism, there could well be ten of successful empowerment and mutual respect. More important though, as Sylvain Ayite adds, we need to think again.

“There is a better way than aid,” says Dambisa. “Of course there is a moral imperative to respond to humanitarian need, but the non-aid models, the emerging market economies, like South Africa and Botswana, are working. Developing macro-finance projects, regulating free trade, actually setting a date for the day that aid to that economy – and dependency – will cease, this is the way for the future.”

Eminent economist and historian Niall Ferguson, among other things a professor at Harvard business school, prefaces Dambisa’s book, naming her “hard- headed and big-hearted”, urging us to listen and asking us to review our own behaviour.

I think I go with his last remark. “This reader was left wanting” he says “A lot more Moyo, and a lot less Bono

Not once, has there been any concrete effort, in any successful arrests of any illegal immigrant trafficking contributing to this human tragedy. Libya is the main source and porin of departure, yet no serious efforts have been made to make Libya comply and patrol their coast or for that matter, just to simply comply with the UN’s SOLAS agreement between nations so that at a minium to save human lives from drowning in the Mediteranean Sea. Illegal Immigrants just cross the Libyan maritime jurisdiction and use Satellite mobile phones to get picked up by either Maltese or Italian Military Patrols and take them into the safety of their respective host Countries. Is it therefore surprising that Left and right wing political parties are gaining ground in EU bordering Countries, Like Malta, Italy, Spain and Greece? If head of states and international bodies are drunk in their riches while not even doing their bare minimum to find solutions. Even Libya’s leader has been held on record as stating that he will flood Europe with illegal immigrants in his efforts to turn Europe Muslim, it might turn out to be a good thing for Europe to bring back some common sense in legislators and Country Leaders (if there are any left).
Thank God for Barrack Obama, being of an African dissidence, he knows firsthand of the African Nations citizens pains. He knows firsthand about the rape of African riches made by both European and American states and Multi-national Companies in the past and continuing to the present, while they now don’t want to live up to their responsibilities and drag their feet into assisting these African Nations to stand up to their responsibilities towards their citizens and legislate to make it a crime against humanity for those aiding corr EU public cannot participate more in deciding for Europe, internet access has made communication and polling an everyday thing, but only if Politicians have the will, albeit exposing their true zest for power. Not because it is not possible, its because they want to keep a stronghold and control the public. They only have to make their efforts and lame excuses once every five years and then go into hibernation till the next election.

EU democracy, preach it to the birds, you might learn a thing or two.

He knows firsthand about the rape of African riches made by both European and American states and Multi-national Companies in the past and continuing to the present, while they now don’t want to live up to their responsibilities and drag their feet into assisting these African Nations to stand up to their responsibilities towards their citizens and legislate to make it a crime against humanity for those aiding corruption of Governments in Africa in the aim to expand their riches and wealth while creating a trail of misery to people in these African Nations, while they give minimal aide to NGO groups so that in the eyes of the naïve, they seem to be doing great charity with Africa. Africa is rich, but her riches is being stolen for making the few rich and the majority live in misery and death, with no hope for the future. Yes, I endorse the American vote for Obama, as he is not only good for the USA, but everybody will be looking towards his leadership in bringing in Solutions to World problems. Although, his prime responsibility will be towards the American people, and rightly so, I wish him all the energy and power to inflict mentality chages in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. Humanity deserves nothing less, I also hope that the US will demand and propose changes in the UN, that reflects today’s pains and miseries.
Unfortunately, most of illegal immigrants do not help their cause and plight, this is because they start demanding and imposing their ways on the host Country, knowing that their demands will be met due to Governments not wanting to be embarrassed by some news media report that a Government is not doing enough towards accommodating the illegal immigrants, where some also dare to claim Governments are discriminating against illegal immigrant. To be honest Governments today end up discriminating towards their citizens where an honest citizen of any Country has his identity known, his work place recorded, his National Security known, His tax number and tax records known, his financial situation known, his birth date, marriage date, divorce date, dental records and a myriad of other data that most of world Governments tend to collect on it’s citizens and also share with other Governments with none of these records are required from illegal immigrants, their own Government doesn’t even share that information with host Countries. Some could be acting unfaithfully and contributing to Global Terrorism, but no Government seems to be interested in finding ways how to control illegal migration into legal migration as a means of a Country’s stability and Security. Can you blame genuine citizens that feel threatened by their own Government lax and complacency towards citizens’ health and security protection that is being paid for by one’s taxes that end up being thrown at the illegal migration problem instead of health and security? Taking a slight look at Malta’s situation, the security forces budget ends up mostly in picking up, caring, feeding of illegal immigrants, the health services can’t even supply medicine entitlement to those falling below poverty and yet illegal immigrants are dealt with before citizens in health care centers and hospitals, they do not contribute a cent towards their accommodation, housing, feeding, clothing, energy bills, taxes, Social Security etc. What is the West coming to, and I specifically mention the West as it is totally the opposite in Middle East, Asia, Australasia, and even guess what Africa. I dare a westerner to travel without identification or Visa into these Countries or to another Western Country for that matter, and see where you will end up. So it is gross discrimination, only against the honest, hard working citizens, with the backing of UN agencies. In my eyes the UN is condoning and blessing all kinds of illegal activities from Governments that creates atrocities against their citizens, Human Traffickers’, Drug Barons, Prostitution, money laundering, child abuse and child labor, organ exploitation and trafficking, if anyone does not agree with my statement, I would like to know where I can get statistics in successful missions in capturing persons that committed crimes against humanity and are now serving life sentences or money confiscated which came from crimes against humanity, instead they live in luxury living for those committing and engaging in these activities , and mostly living in Western Countries or Countries that are stabile.
I wish and hope that journalists from all continents, start investigating these tough tasks instead of the easy to get news items. The likes of Christiane Amanpour of CNN that dares uncover the truth and discloses it to tht Malta Government]]>

<![CDATA[The heat is on traditional Political Parties in Malta and in most of Europe, for the upcoming MEP elections.
The Gonzi Government in Malta, is doing its utmost, to create the perfect lies, resorting to the same tactics that worked in winning by the slightest margin in the last election. The government would like to portray an image of a strong government, but it is showing how weak it really is.
Like it or not, most of the Maltese Electorate will be voting those candidates that will show some true Maltese Patriotic values, that respects those that gave up their lives protecting the Islands. Mosy of those that died fighting for the islands in past wars, would not have shed a single drop of their blood in Malta’s defense, if only they knew that their fore bearers would simply give it up to invading illegal immigrants. The PN betrayed them and future generations for Euros. There is no other way to describe the PN’s actions other than betrayal to the Maltese Citizens. All you hear r PN’s activists and Politician’s mouths is how Europe is doing its utmost and how much financial assistance Malta is getting in alleviating the Illegal Immigration problem, well , its not. Europe is turning Malta into a concentration camp for illegal Immigration, leaving the local population to fend on their own, as not even our representatives have been able to come in our defense or to protect the Nation. Instead, even legislation has been passed to protect the invaders, with unfair assistance to illegal immigrants while our poor are getting poorer, citizens being continually bombarded with taxes and tariffs, our health system giving preferential treatment to those that have not contributed a cent towards the Nation, unfair employment rules that illegal immigrants work illicitly while the honest citizen declares every cent that was earned by his efforts, every single personal data of the Maltese citizen is known to our Authorities while illegal immigrants roam freely with no record of their identity or past history known.
Yes, Gonzi and his Party have failed the Nation, he is betraying the Nation for the sake of playing into the EU’s master plan in their experimentation as to what would happen to a Nation when the amount of foreigners surpass the actual inhabitants of a Country, then they can take the necessary steps to avoid it happening to mainland Europe. Malta is the ideal place for such an experiment that can produce fast results, as it is small enough to be overcome by the invaders in just a few years. It is also small enough not to create problems to Europe in any manner whatsoever , it can also help Europe by eliminating the strain on their education system, leaving that burden on the Maltese Nation, then they can reap the benefits in the future, Europe will have the peace of mind that disease can be controlled and confined and isolated to our islands, eliminating the cost of having to strain their health and welfare system while burdening the Maltese infrastructure to capitulate.
Malta was Europe’s envy, but now being destroyed for the sake of money that our politicians are interested in, if only Mintoff was younger!
This will all happen, as will turning Malta to an eventual Rwanda. That is what happens when Politicians are descendants of past politicians and not trained in loving and protecting their Country, that is what happens when the love and patriotic values for one’s Country is superseded by for the love of Europe, that is what happens when betrayal of one’s Country is translated to words like compromise and co-operation. That is what happens when we become the only Nation abiding by International conventions and regulations while other Countries can bend and twist them to their own advantageous requirements.
The Citizens have one shot to get it right and correct the situation every five years and they’d better get it right and foresee the consequences in that only shot. That is their vote. Voting wisely and voting for the love of your Country is paramount, as that is the only true place that you can rely on for your education, health, employment, Law and order and raising one’s family. If your representatives betray these values, not only will one’s Country be destroyed, you would have participated in its destruction and extinction. True Politicians resign when not capable of living up to the citizens expectations not remain in office for his own personal gain. Politics is a different breed of employment, as they have to be in Love with their Country and LOVE to serve its citizens, a breed lacking in Malta, where politicians become in LOVE with their own wealth and power , they are not serving us they are continually lying and betraying us.
Vote wisely in the next MEP elections, anticipate the outcome, traditional parties have become passive in their protection of the Nation and safe guarding our future and future generations. Their lying has become their only virtue, but come the day after the election, the same deterioration of our Country continues. God speed Malta, and may you and your citizens come to your defense, as our forefathers did , and hold your name up with pride.

Malta Detention regime of Irregular Migrants criticised

http://www.ireport.com/docs/DOC-201394
illegal immigrants on the Island of Malta, has become an insurmountable problem for the Maltese Government to the extent, that legislation had to be passed to muzzle in on the increasing public outcry to contain and reverse the increasing arrivals of illegal Migration. The new legislation has the aim of containing public opinion from being expressed openly, where the Authorities will be able to prosecute anyone that voices his opinion regarding the scale of illegal immigrants now roaming the tiny island, under undefined racial hatred laws.

The Islands are just an outcrop, in the middle of the Mediterranean sea , and a front line of illegal migration crossing of unfortunate people, that keep being forgotten by the International Community. They have a right to a decent living for themselves and their families as any in the Western or Asian Countries.

The problems for Malta and the Maltese, arises, due to the size of the islands. with an area of 316 sq km (121 sq miles) and a population density of 1282 per sq km (3339 per sq mile), population 2007 estimate of 418,285 and with the arrival of new illegal immigrants superseding the official National Birth rate, on a Country with no natural resources. It is becoming a real strain on the Islands.
The disappointment is further rubbed in on the Maltese population, that after doing their utmost, in getting illegal migrants to shore safely from dangerous crossings on flimsy, un-seaworthy boats. The united Nations agency UNHCR, keeps criticizing the Maltese Government for not doing enough and calls on the immediate release of undocumented, medically unscreened and unproven Country of Origin migrants.
One always thought that the United Nations is there to support the World Community, in getting Countries the Stability and improvement in conditions for their citizens. In Malta, the UN is being seen a de-stabilization medium of our once charitable Nation which is now being overburdened by the financial cost to the Maltese community, that have to outlay the cost for Medical, educating and housing these poor souls and abandon the care for the local less fortunate citizens.
The burden is further instilled by the un-willingness of the Maltese Government and other Political parties to crack down on employers , that abuse the employment system, and hire illegal immigrants, granting illegal migrants inferior work conditions and salaries, escaping Tax and Social Security payments, while these same migrants are allowed to collect Government financial aid thereby creating an unfair employment competition with the local workers.
Although , Malta is part of the EU, the smallest and most populated Country of the EU, the same EU has not been forth coming with assistance to which it is the problem creator for Malta’s migrant problems. Legislation within the EU is very soothing on paper, in that humans have rights to be respected, but then the EU condemned these people to a life without a future on a small island where they do not even want to be, as their aim was to build a future on mainland Europe. Even in the EU’s speeches, there are recommendations for European Governments to legalize these illegal immigrants due to the unsustainable future growth to the economy because decreasing workforce in Europe and the aging population then they do not want to take any of these Migrants to help in building their future ecconomy, altough the EU wants to take credit and want to be looked at as if they are chapions and saviours to refugee and illegal migrants in the World’s eye…… only on paper though. The EU’s support to border Countries has been a matter of throwing some money at the problem and a just one Country (Holland) taking a ridiculous amount of refugees to start a new life in their Country. The USA (not part of the EU), has taken in solidarity support to Malta more than the EU Countries combined, under the assistance of the American Ambassador H.E. Ms. Molly Bordanaro.
The United Nations agency, UNHCR, has been a failure, due to the fact that Countries part of the UN assembly, are not doing enough in condemning Countries not respecting Human basic laws. The Secretary General in the UN is oblivious of problems being created in other Countries overburdened with refugee and illegal migrants on their host Country. He never, ever once sited praise or visited Malta for our efforts in saving migrants from sure death in the deep Mediterranean Sea. Not once has the EU member states took seriously the plight, of their member state or the real wish of these migrants, to see the strain being created on the Islands and the migrants. Instead we are continually being criticized for our genuine efforts in easing the hardship for these unfortunate people.
In the Malta newspapers there are daily reports, especially during the April-October migrant crossings, although lately it has been occurring in the winter months too. One can see an increasing resentment towards the EU, UNHCR and the Maltese Political Parties due to their inactions and criticism, while they bury their heads in the sand instead of working together for a solution. Not once, has there been any concrete effort, in any successful arrests of any illegal immigrant trafficking contributing to this human tragedy. Libya is the main source and porin of departure, yet no serious efforts have been made to make Libya comply and patrol their coast or for that matter, just to simply comply with the UN’s SOLAS agreement between nations so that at a minium to save human lives from drowning in the Mediteranean Sea. Illegal Immigrants just cross the Libyan maritime jurisdiction and use Satellite mobile phones to get picked up by either Maltese or Italian Military Patrols and take them into the safety of their respective host Countries. Is it therefore surprising that Left and right wing political parties are gaining ground in EU bordering Countries, Like Malta, Italy, Spain and Greece? If head of states and international bodies are drunk in their riches while not even doing their bare minimum to find solutions. Even Libya’s leader has been held on record as stating that he will flood Europe with illegal immigrants in his efforts to turn Europe Muslim, it might turn out to be a good thing for Europe to bring back some common sense in legislators and Country Leaders (if there are any left).
Thank God for Barrack Obama, being of an African dissidence, he knows firsthand of the African Nations citizens pains. He knows firsthand about the rape of African riches made by both European and American states and Multi-national Companies in the past and continuing to the present, while they now don’t want to live up to their responsibilities and drag their feet into assisting these African Nations to stand up to their responsibilities towards their citizens and legislate to make it a crime against humanity for those aiding corruption of Governments in Africa in the aim to expand their riches and wealth while creating a trail of misery to people in these African Nations, while they give minimal aide to NGO groups so that in the eyes of the naïve, they seem to be doing great charity with Africa. Africa is rich, but her riches is being stolen for making the few rich and the majority live in misery and death, with no hope for the future. Yes, I endorse the American vote for Obama, as he is not only good for the USA, but everybody will be looking towards his leadership in bringing in Solutions to World problems. Although, his prime responsibility will be towards the American people, and rightly so, I wish him all the energy and power to inflict mentality chages in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world. Humanity deserves nothing less, I also hope that the US will demand and propose changes in the UN, that reflects today’s pains and miseries.
Unfortunately, most of illegal immigrants do not help their cause and plight, this is because they start demanding and imposing their ways on the host Country, knowing that their demands will be met due to Governments not wanting to be embarrassed by some news media report that a Government is not doing enough towards accommodating the illegal immigrants, where some also dare to claim Governments are discriminating against illegal immigrant. To be honest Governments today end up discriminating towards their citizens where an honest citizen of any Country has his identity known, his work place recorded, his National Security known, His tax number and tax records known, his financial situation known, his birth date, marriage date, divorce date, dental records and a myriad of other data that most of world Governments tend to collect on it’s citizens and also share with other Governments with none of these records are required from illegal immigrants, their own Government doesn’t even share that information with host Countries. Some could be acting unfaithfully and contributing to Global Terrorism, but no Government seems to be interested in finding ways how to control illegal migration into legal migration as a means of a Country’s stability and Security. Can you blame genuine citizens that feel threatened by their own Government lax and complacency towards citizens’ health and security protection that is being paid for by one’s taxes that end up being thrown at the illegal migration problem instead of health and security? Taking a slight look at Malta’s situation, the security forces budget ends up mostly in picking up, caring, feeding of illegal immigrants, the health services can’t even supply medicine entitlement to those falling below poverty and yet illegal immigrants are dealt with before citizens in health care centers and hospitals, they do not contribute a cent towards their accommodation, housing, feeding, clothing, energy bills, taxes, Social Security etc. What is the West coming to, and I specifically mention the West as it is totally the opposite in Middle East, Asia, Australasia, and even guess what Africa. I dare a westerner to travel without identification or Visa into these Countries or to another Western Country for that matter, and see where you will end up. So it is gross discrimination, only against the honest, hard working citizens, with the backing of UN agencies. In my eyes the UN is condoning and blessing all kinds of illegal activities from Governments that creates atrocities against their citizens, Human Traffickers’, Drug Barons, Prostitution, money laundering, child abuse and child labor, organ exploitation and trafficking, if anyone does not agree with my statement, I would like to know where I can get statistics in successful missions in capturing persons that committed crimes against humanity and are now serving life sentences or money confiscated which came from crimes against humanity, instead they live in luxury living for those committing and engaging in these activities , and mostly living in Western Countries or Countries that are stabile.
I wish and hope that journalists from all continents, start investigating these tough tasks instead of the easy to get news items. The likes of Christiane Amanpour of CNN that dares uncover the truth and discloses it to the World, she at least is trying to make a difference in her reporting towards humanity unlike most of other so called journalists. Journalism is a mission not a job.
It is unfair that Africa is doomed to be the World Begger, while European, Asian , Australasian, and Middle East are busting at the seams with fat cats get richer by the second while hundreds die by the second in Africa and the UN just watch and is critical of those trying to do their best with the means they’ve got

To date, only Germany and the Netherlands have accepted a few refugees from Malta. The most substantial contribution has come from the United States, which this year agreed to accept 200 refugees.

Incompetent Maltese Goverment

How sad, to have a Government that cannot find true social solutions to the multitude problems facing the Maltese citizens. The new buzz word to all problems seems to be ‘The high price of Oil, outside Government control and that it is an imported problem’. Lies, Lies and more Lies, the truth is that the Government has abdicated from doing its duties towards its citizens. I can give some practical examples that is used by serious Industry Managers.

  1. What is in the pipeline to mitigate at future oil supplies and future oil price rises – NOTHING
  2. What is Enemalta doing to guarantee future supplies – Nothing
  3. What incentives are given to help fuel efficiency – Nothing
  4. What investments are being made in alternative energy – Nothing
  5. What investments are being made in exploration for oil/gas in an area surrounded by oil producing Nations – Nothing

That is why I keep reiterating that we don’t have leaders in Malta, we have amateurs that have amassed a great wealth and power that can be used to abuse and hold to ransom the whole Nation. Our Parliament has become to look more like a Mafia forum with the Godfather running the Government.

Solutions are easy to find but they are not willing to use their pea brain. The media has been a propaganda machine to the Government, with no real investigative reporting to find and disclose the hidden Government agenda, instead they keep repeating the Government’s arguments ‘That the reasons for fuel prices is an International and imported problem and justifies the Government’s repeated steal of its citizens money in ever increasing direct and indirect taxation with the ever diminishing services and assets.

Solutions:

  1. Stop being the European Begging Nation – We are not beggars, it’s either we are treated as equals or we don’t really need to belong there.
  2. Float Enemalta, and insist on the board of Directors and Chairman to have set goals – underperformers are to be given the boot on there behind. They must invest in future oil exploration and alternative energy partnerships to guarantee future energy supplies, and curb antiquated energy waste through their infrastructure. If need be it can be floated on the Malta stock exchange, first of all to be more transparent in its profits and losses and how their assets are managed. In a few words to become a professional enterprise instead of an amateur run energy company. It’s incredible that a monopoly Company is in such a dire situation, you could smell it from a million miles away that it’s a Government run enterprise.
  3. Encourage investment in oil exploration around our territorial waters and onshore, by reviewing antiquated exploration contracts, Find the oil once and they will all flock around you for an opportunity to drill and exploit. Give them the opportunity to make their first strike of oil and then start dictating your exploration licenses. Not exploiting them before even given the opportunity to strike oil/gas.
  4. Have a serious energy resources department run by professionals that have international contacts, they are expensive but their return can run into billions of dollars, but for God’s sakes let it be run by an Oil Exploration professional, like an ex-CEO of a Multinational Oil Company, not by a Minister that doesn’t even know where the dip stick in his car engine is let alone how to explore for oil.
  5. Incentivize scientific research alternative energy companies to open up shop in Malta, use funds and now that we are members of the EU, exploit their research funds to attract these Companies. Organize International Conferences and advertise where these Companies Congregate.
  6. Stop taxing fuel indiscriminately, if the polluters pay is going to be adopted than it should be at the pump, those who use it pay for emissions of their usage, not a set price at car licensing on engine capacity, a 30cc engine used on Sundays emits less co2 than an engine 10cc used 24/7, but alas a dead brained Government’s easy option is to target the masses, another tax collection method and not an environmental issue, that comes into the equation a lot further down the line.
  7. High energy consuming enterprises. Including Hotels that does not meet the criteria to reduce consumption and modernizing by investing in energy saving methods should shoulder the cost of fuel increases as everyone else, and the Government should stand bold into threats of employee redundancies.

I think I have made some points that are worth looking into. A Government worth its salt should stop funding inefficiencies and start being professional in its outlook towards its mission to protect its HONEST HARD WORKING citizens, not those that become paralyzed by Government inefficiency of those that pray on the social handouts and work in the black economy.

The Global Warming issue is overstated, CO2 is a natural element, there is more CO2 released into the atmosphere than the whole use of CO2 per annum due to natural earth activity such as volcanoes. The International buzz word as CO2 emissions and Global Warming are only scare mongering tactics by environmentalists that managed to infiltrate Governmental positions and International sponsorships from industries having interest in such dooms day approach. In reality China and India will consume more energy and emit more CO2 into the atmosphere even if the EU keeps setting it’s emissions lower, efficiency is a good thing to provide longer term used of the limited natural Oil resources, but surely not at the cost of driving employers out of the EU into China and India, after all the EU will ultimately pay the price by unemployment costs on their Countries financial system. Research also proved that the world has gone through warming phases in the past with evidence in snow layers in the Arctic, might have been accelerated from the use of oil since the Industrial revolution but Oil is still being used and still will be the main form of energy used in the foreseeable future, emissions can only be delayed by a few years at most but will still be emitted. Another theory that nobody seems not to blow horns about is the suns increasing solar wind activity and the effects on earth, so what happens next, install an outer space umbrella to shield the earth. Nature’s way of protecting itself is well under estimated. Mother Earth does not need human intervention to mess up its work as it can deal with whatever it is thrown at her, nobody can bring back the dinosaurs as mother nature found a solution for that, it’s called evolution, and if mother earth has planned in its evolution to destroy the top predator in the food chain, it will do so, just like the dinosaur.
