Abstract: Forget the wonders of education. Forget the benefits of consultation and of an inclusive society. Forget all that - some people simply cannot abandon their fiendish tactics. And branding the destruction of 3,000 tree samplings at Mellieha as a "fiendish" act is an understatement. It is difficult to understand how the authorities have no clue about the identity of the perpetrators - one expects these vandals to be known to certain lobby groups. There are no half measures here - you either bring these people to justice or the reputation of the entire political establishment is dented. Any permitted impunity will weigh heavily on the conscience of our politicians. Every calamity holds opportunity, however - the way has been paved for commercial and business entities to volunteer and replace the vandalised stock as soon as possible to convey the message that no degree of arm-twisting by those who stoop so low will dampen the current tree-planting momentum.
