Abstract: If ever any further proof was needed of how many ladder rungs the environment has slid in the local political agenda, the current electoral campaign is the most effective mirror of all. For instance, both the PN and the PL are pandering to the aspirations of most Gozitans for more development (of the concrete type) on their island. This ‘fast-tracking’ allure is becoming viral... first the PL pledged to scupper the en trenched environmental impact assessment (EIA) procedure for the proposed gas plant at Delimara, and to water down bureaucracy for ‘large (unspecified) projects’, to extend building permits beyond their term of five years and to promote agritourism through ‘projects in fields’ in Gozo.
