George I agree with you 100%, but the things some people say on here about the Maltese is not about the past, its about how they don't agree with how the Maltese do things. The Maltese that have lived in Malta all their lives, and have never been as fortunate as us to see and compare what it is like to live in a different country. They have always done thing the best way they know how.
Could you imagine what life would have been like for these people living on a small Island with limited access to what we take for granted. These people are the real survivors. I don't hate the British, but I hate the comments made on here about my people, especially from the ex-service men on this forum, who feel that we owe our lives to them.
