Abstract: This article follows the political feud that Maltese Prime Minister George Borg Olivier partook in against the British Government with regard to financial aid. Due to Malta's precarious economic situation as a result of the disastrous World War II, Borg Olivier sought to attain financial backing from the British who, despite governing Malta, were reluctant to provide substantial help. As a result of Borg Olivier's expertly-administered, if time-consuming, political tactics, the British eventually fulfilled Malta's financial requests. This political victory laid the groundwork for the eventual Maltese independence in 1964.
