Well done on Malta wining the race for a European Immigration asylumn centre

Well done Malta! I have mentioned before that Malta is much more competent in the cloak and dagger policies of the European Union. Despite previous dreadful incidents relating Malta and immigrants from Africa, Malta has won the unofficial race to host the new European asylum office. The office will be placed in a pretty derelict area of the Grand harbour, which lost part of its purpose with the replacement of the port with a Freeport in Marsaxlokk.

Do not be fooled - this took some hard lobbying, and i am guessing that it helped when the decision was made to place it to a new member state since immigration is an issue of Cyprus a Malta - with the other "new" states being emigrate countries. Cyprus was not consistent enough to win it and we were focused on the December deadline for the Turkish entry...

P.s.1 I have just been informed that the centre was a suggestion of the Cypriot government to the the European Union - if that is the case then loosing means we did something very very wrong.
