The Nationalist Party and the natural environment
While forcefully opposing development at Zonqor Point, the Nationalist Party then came out in favour of the race track being proposed at Siggiewi which will gobble up more than 700 tumoli of virgin land. So how can I believe the Nationalist Party when it says it has turned green? Zonqor Point development will take up 18,000 square metres, while the race track will eat up 50 times as much (ie 1,000,000 square metres).
Let’s reach a consensus as a nation that certain projects are a nono for Malta because they cause too much environmental damage and are not sustainable in the long run
Let’s reach a consensus as a nation that living in a democracy does not mean living without limits. This consensus would lead us to give priority to buses by introducing more bus lanes and to reduce the number cars on the roads by introducing tariffs in certain areas, or that cars with the number plate ending in even numbers can be driven in the rush hour while others cannot and vice versa, or similar rules which have the same effect.
