Ousted for being a gentleman
I refer to Past Pupils written by Tony Aquilina (May 26).
Now that would be a fantastic idea Mr Aquilina! Setting up a new association comprising past Lyceum students, this time with men the likes of Charles Calleja, a former Lyceum master who hails from the Three Villages, the incumbent treasurer of ALPS and a former Lyceum headmaster, who is still serving on the ALPS council.
This new association would not have any of its members on the council resign just because another member on the council asks some questions to which he has every right for an answer and will not permit these members to automatically return to their former post on the council without a re-election being held, thereby breaking statute rules.
Now how is that for transparency Mr Aquilina?
The behaviour of certain people at the meeting held purposely to vote Mr Calleja out of the council was appalling. If nothing else it was shameful!
Does it not occur to Mr Aquilina that the people he mentioned in his letter are men enough not to accept such behaviour?
I know that Mr Aquilina was aware that it was not only Mr Calleja who was perplexed by various aspects in the administration of the council but no one wanted to put it in writing.
Mr Calleja was only voted out of the council for being a gentleman.
