Labour's stand on Hondoq ir-Rummien

Labour's media executive Mark Farrugia (August 23) rushes in to write that Labour is in favour of a yacht marina in Hondoq ir-Rummien Bay in Gozo. People in Qala are confused.
So Labour is in favour of ruining their favourite swimming spot after all!
Mr Farrugia clearly states that "Dr Sant also explained that the proposal put forward by the Labour government between 1996 and 1998 for Hondoq ir-Rummien was that of developing a stand-alone yacht marina. The Labour government gave its assurances that all swimming and other recreational facilities at Hondoq ir-Rummien would still be fully accessible to the people of Qala."
Oh, so now we have it! The Labour Party policy appears to support the proposal whereby the people of Qala should swim a few metres away from the yachts in the marina with all their effluents.
Are the people of Qala and visitors supposed to swim a few metres away from hundreds of yachts in a polluted yacht marina? I would like to invite any of the Labour MPs to come and swim in the Mgarr marina (Zewwieqa) or the other marina at Ta' Xbiex.
Can the Labour's media executive explain how Labour come up with these fantastic ideas of yacht marinas and sea fit for swimming in at the same time?
The people of Qala now finally know who is really on their side. Gozitans surely can distinguish between those who really care for Gozo and those (as evident in this case) whose interest lies solely in not losing electoral votes.[/img]
What are your comments?
I really dont know who to vote next Elec?
PS: There was a mistake on the Times letter, since the author of that photo should read Stephen Mifsud. Phoned the editor and a correction/appology will follow next Thurday. Greetings to Victor Galea.
