Good luck to Chris in this case. I suppose with these prats he'll need it.

I hope that the footage exonerates him & as a consequence, the hunters are charged & police officers suspended.

Hopefully so and maybe it could turn the tide of public opinion in Malta.

An EU country subsidised by your taxes:

so every Maltese hunter or police officer gets about 80 Euros of your cash.

cheers, alan

And in return, they shoot our Quails and Turtle Doves (breeding in Central Europe), as if to spite us. Nice, innit?

It will be harder for justice minded people over there in the UK to stop illegal hunting in Malta and other EU countries from outside the EU. There again, how much did the UK government do to campaign to stop them?

Outside the EU, we won't be subsidising them to hunt illegally.

The UK has never had any influence in the EU anyway so leaving changes nothing in relation to policy or application thereof..
