Abstract: The old adage of history making a complete 360° revolution could not find greater coherence than on our islands. Hotel developers are the epitome of this. For instance, after the deplorable bail-out by the Solemar owners in Marfa, who managed to obtain patronage for their illegal development of 180 rooms rather than the permitted 62, thebaton was taken recently by the Portomaso developers, who are stretching every sinew to get 25 apartments developed illegally to be authorised in what surely must be a sanctioning haven that is Malta. Nature Trust (Malta) blew the whistle on this one more faux pas by our hoteliers last month. The Portomaso developers must surely be rubbing salt into the wound after having tinged the water at their site with an unnatural milky hue, which has smothered all marine life in the area.
