So we want to give Paceville a revamp huh? I confess to greeting this announcement with whoops of laughter, particularly when I read that said revamping will take the form of resurfacing a couple of roads and adding some street furniture.
Street furniture? What Paceville needs, in order to gain even the semblance of a half-okayish place, is not a couple of potted plants and some benches, but a good purge of sights like the below.
The above image is doing a splendid service promoting brand Malta on Tripadvisor, by the way. Directing patrons of this ilk to a more suitable location – Gzira, perhaps? Ah no, they look pretty underage so we can’t have that can we? – would not only give the place an instant facelift but would also cost next to nothing.
A couple more quick revamp ideas: make anyone who pukes/pees in the street clean it up. At least all those police officers standing around doing nothing can make themselves useful. This too costs nothing. On the contrary, if you also slap a fine on the morons while at it, you might even get some money out of it and use it to carry out some real embellishment works in the area. You’re welcome.
Another quick DIY revamp? Remove all the kindergarten facility permits. You heard me. The crowd in most of the clubs and bars looks like a gathering of pre-pubescent students. The kind of students who will eventually spend most of their working lives lying on their backs – the photos do not lie.
More suggestions: stop making Paceville pretty much the only reason foreign students enrol in language courses. They scream and they shout. They stand in the middle of the roads, blocking your way, too hungover to figure out that they look like morons about to become roadkill. They get drunk and obnoxious after one bleeding tray of shooters (because you see, in their country they’re not actually allowed to booze it up so they’re not used to it). They’re a pain to all the rest of us who have to navigate our way around them.
Please note that it’s not this sort of thing (taken from here) behind closed doors that bugs me:
So to go back to the original argument, I don’t think it’s a bit of a facelift we need to look at here. It’s a bleeding purge.
