Of course, all of us are outraged by the cynical attitude of the Maltese government, though it comes as no surprise in view of their past record. However, if they are allowed to make a mockery of EU directives then it does not bode well for bird conservation in the EU in general. I think it slightly unfair to blame Birdlife for failing, since little progress would have been made without their constant efforts. Clearly, a renewed, more vigorous campaign is necessary, however, and EU officials must be held accountable for their failure and negligence.
