The only tunnel we should have built, was an underground system girdling the island.
This should have been done after Independence, in the sixties.
But then, as now, we had no statesmen - we had minions, dilettantes, amateurs.
 
It would have been easy to tunnel around the Island through the soft limestone.
A tube girdling the Island would have meant cheap, clean, fast travel for all -
fewer roads and a lot fewer cars.

  Peter Gatt, a local geologist who specialized in the geology of the Maltese continental shelf, last week lambasted the plans unveiled by the Transport Minister for a tunnel link between the islands.
All four of the proposed routes had been envisaged to tunnel directly into a potentially active 'slipstrike fault' - i.e., a natural formation that is commonly associated with instability and the potential for collapse - that characterizes much of the southeast coastal area of Gozo.
Furthermore, two of the proposed tunnels would also have to pass through a layer of clay beneath the islet of Comino: and the dangers of tunneling through clay, without taking into consideration the precise geological properties of the area, had already been demonstrated by the collapse of the Heathrow airport extension tunnel in 1994....contd

These, some 60 of them, are the illustrious gentlemen adorning our Parliament.
Since Independence, these clowns have ruined our once Paradise Island.
And nothing can be done from that Maqjel in Valletta - it is of no use.
 
Only IE in Brussels can start the Cultural Revolution towards Nova Europa.
Eliminating Jewish values, that are the fundamental cause of ALL our maladies.
Only then, can we save in estremis, our Malta and our People.

What you are seeing in that video can never be done between Malta and Gozo. Just for us to be clear about this issue. In case someone might think its possible and is given a false impression.
