The guys over at Bay Easy decided to veer off what they do best (and by ‘what they do’ I really mean what they think they do), and comment about the state of affairs in Valletta.

They posted this photo and comment on their Facebook page;

Bay Easy comments about laundry in Valletta

“Is this still acceptable in the future European Capital of Culture? Pants and socks hang on a line IN THE STREET near Fort St Elmo in Valletta”

Of course the comments section soon filled up with badly written sentences and appallingly written words. Disgraceful, shameless, how awful, they all cried, but what is so offensive about laundry?

Malta is blessed with sun and gentle breezes, and on a beautiful day like today, yes you do your laundry and stick it outside to dry. If that so happens to be facing a street because there is no roof access then so be it, there is nothing offensive about laundry.

If Bay Easy wants to point their fingers and shame then why don’t they point at all those people who leave their car on, in the middle of the road, while they go to buy their ‘pakkett imsiemer’ (cigarettes), or those who think our roads are just one big landfill, or worse still those who drive their cars thinking they are an Ayrton Senna reincarnation?

That’s what’s offensive, not clean laundry hanging in the street, which is at the end of the day part of our culture and heritage. So yes, Bay Easy, this is still acceptable, even for the future European Capital of Culture, the beautiful Valletta.
