WATCH: "If your pockets are full, you can do as you wish"; Valletta resident goes viral after posting rant
Sep 2 2021 Share

A valletta resident’s Facebook video has been making waves on social media after his blunt criticism of the recently-installed metal platform in Merchants Street Valletta.

The resident, known as ‘Il-Boat’, stated that the platform is an example and consequences of the “tyranny of the rich”, going on to state that if your pockets are full in Malta, you can do as you wish.

The concerned man highlighted that he will be going ‘all out’ against the forces and authorities who are turning Valletta’s capital city to a playground for the rich to the detriment of the city’s residents.

The Valletta Council has since posted a reply to the situation, stating that the permission given to AX Holdings for the platform in Merchant Street was not asked or given from the Valletta Local Council and went on to criticise the placement of the platform and call for the care of Valletta’s civil and cultural identity.
