Times of Malta reported (September 1) that a “tourist” threw stones and smashed the glass of a bus because, according to the report, he did not have enough money to pay the fare. I think it would be in order to ask the Tourism Minister, unless, of course, it is some state secret, how many tourists visit Malta and how much do they spend.

It is very easy to come to Malta via the catamaran from Sicily to use one of the public conveniences, which I think now have been added to the already heavy political job our Tourism Minister has.
