WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS REFERENCES TO IMMORAL AND INDECENT ACTS IN PUBLIC. SENSITIVE VIEWERS SHOULD NOT READ BEYOND POINT 4.

1. Commission Raps On
The European Commission is not satisfied with the answer given to it by the Maltese government regarding the departure tax. The Commission deems the existence of such a tax discriminatory. This led the Commission to send a letter of formal warning which is essentially a request by the Commission to a government to give reasons why a law or administrative action taken by that government should not be seen as infringing Community law. The government’s reply to such letter was not satisfactory(I assume that the govt showed that it had reduced the tax) and this has led to the second step of procedure: the reasoned opinion. In a reasoned opinion the Commission formulates its case against the government – pointing out what it deems to be the areas of infringement and requesting the government to take action in order to rectify the situation (one can assume from the Commission’s arguments that the Commission would request either that the tax is removed or that local travel is taxed equally). The government now has two months to rectify the situation and reply to the reasoned opinion. Failure to do so will imply an action in the European Court of Justice for failure to implement community law.

2. And on
It’s not just air travel that’s in trouble. The Commission does not find the situation regarding the Gozo Channel monopoly very amusing. Even this procedure is at the stage of reasoned opinion. Looks like a lot of work could be coming up at the Court come next season.

3. A Good Nationalist Article
Since someone seems to think that we only see bad things come out of the PN media columns allow me to say that Malcolm Mifsud’s article on today’s Indy seems to be a well-argued reposte to an interview by Michael Cohen. Well-argued, well-said and to top it all up not one word about Mintoff and the dark ages.

4. Republic
Speaking of which… happy Republic Day to all you enjoying a second public holiday in a week. Aren’t we a spoilt nation?

5. What’s Wrong with the Thong?
Reports from the Maltese courts regarding the Lap Dancer’s Case read like a Carry On script. Carry On Blushing would be a good title… for the police force in this case. It would seem that the accusation is now down from prostitution to “performing immoral acts in public”. The proof? Tight shorts (tighter than those of a gymnast), scanty dressing and dancing while scantily dressed. From the witness stand: “The fact that they were dancing means that were participating in immoral acts because of the way they were dressed.” Tali-who? Or this one… “Our orders were to arrest anyone wearing a thong because that is immoral.” have to remind Melanie about this one… next time we are in Malta I must go to the monti for those pancieri… I have no time for this tomfoolery. Ajjut! will surely be onto this one. As will Daphne… and of course I cannot wait for Lorna’s take on the matter.

For all you song lovers out there… Sisqo’s Thong Song followed by Jimmy Fallon’s Spoof (please don’t work that Thong!):
