Ah, so Labour has been celebrating repeatedly at an estate without the necessary permits

There’s no such thing as a free lunch, as they say.
The Labour Party, its phone company, and its politicians have all thrown their parties at Polidano’s Monte Kristo estate over the last couple of years.
Super One hack Miriam Dalli even held her wedding reception there when she married Karmenu ‘Il-Guy’ Vella’s son. And it was failed Labour MEP candidate and upcoming general election star candidate Marlene Mizzi’s choice of venue, too, when she hosted a wedding reception for her daughter.
Why did they go there, all of them, and repeatedly? Surely not because it’s so fabulously chavtastic. The obvious answer is that Labour politicians and the Labour Party itself are probably getting the place gratis or at some kind of terrific discount, maybe even with the Monte Kristo wine thrown in for free.
Oh course, I might be terribly wrong, but there you go – educated guesses, perception and all that. And nobody being asked any questions, of course, by our ultra-feeble press that is more concerned with scrutinising the Facebook pages of unbalanced MPs.
And now it turns out that Polidano has ‘legality problems’ with his Monte Kristo estate. If all those Labour politicians threw their parties there, maybe even accepting his special offers, how then can they question his permits or the lack of them?
They should have done that before partying hard among the caged reptiles and plaster statues.
A gas plant just 140 metres away from a fireworks factory, for heaven’s sake. And the MEPA has only just noticed? What a country.
On timesofmalta.com, this morning:
POLIDANO HIT BY MEPA ENFORCEMENT ACTION
Direct enforcement action was taken this morning by Mepa’s enforcement officers at Polidano’s estate in Hal Farrug.
A spokesman for the authority confirmed that the action was taken because of a number of illegalities at the estate but could not say what the action included.
It is understood that the action hit both the Montekristo Estates and Poligas, which is 140 metres away from a fireworks factory.
