Future Barrakka Lift

The lift that connected Lascaris Wharf and Upper Barrakka in Valletta more than four decades ago will be rebuilt and completed before March 2011. (Times of Malta)

Well I hope they get some decent builders in, not the Italian bunch who were supposed to install the external lift on the Millenium Tower in Portsmouth. As far as I know, it is still not working!!!

But nothing works in Pompey!

Ah yes, but on the news tonight, twas said that the Navy was sending all (Ho, Ho) their ships up from Guz to be fixed in Pompey, Pompey becoming the "Premier Naval Port". Truth be known they probably worked out that there was more electoral benefit to The Party doing it that way.

Hmmm! All 11 frigates? MoD are currently denying the story. Linda Gilroy is not amused Exclamation

No Phill, still no joy with the glass lift at the Spinnaker Tower when I paid my usual Wednesday visit to Portsmouth Point this afternoon! Watch it, Admin or Pompey members may boycott your site! (Or perhaps not!)

Yes Miss, Sorry Miss. (Of course if you had been at TH, it would be Ma'am.)
OldBat   [Apr 16, 2009 at 07:34 PM]
Oh yes, I'd be happy to answer to Ma'am - very regal - but fear I don't qualify so I'll stick with 'Miss'!
Prefect   [May 06, 2009 at 01:48 PM]
It seems all the frigates are staying in Guz for at least the next 5 years and we are also getting all the surface refits. So yah boo sucks to Pompey!
