Boycotting Malta

You Maltese are responsible for an ignoble massacre which I have personally witnessed over the past years, ever since I started to encourage people to visit foreign lands except Malta.

This year alone I have taken 75 to Pantelleria, 39 to the Isole Pelage and 46 to the Eolian Islands. I told my clients that the Maltese have no respect whatsoever for nature.

I can assure you that when I told them, and showed them films and photographs of the massacre of birds that fly over Malta, many became very angry.

I am now working to get many travel agencies to boycott your island and I am already succeeding.

Perhaps Malta is still a lovely place, but the Maltese, the way they behave and defend those who fire on birds, are uncivilised people who do not merit anything except scorn.

THE MALTESE ARE UNCIVILISED PEOPLE
