Some politicians still want the ban to go through, should make the future of the Maldives rather interesting!
It will never happen. The government relies too heavily on the money from the resorts and tourism, and of course some of the resort owners even have strong links to the government.
It's simply the normal trouble making politics in the maldives.
Didn't realise holidaymakers would be bothered about no pork : )
Of course the bacon and sausages for breakfast for a start. Can't stand this beef bacon and chicken sausages nonsense
Beef bacon & chicken sausages are rotten but I can do without real ones for 2 weeks. And although a Pina Colada slides down really well watching the sunset, I rarely drink at home too, so an alcohol ban wouldn't bother me- though I know it would my OH. Didn't they try to close all the resort spas down a little while ago too? They had to back down on that ban as would have cost too much in revenue & banning alcohol would cost even more.
This will not happen in our lifetimes. It is just politicians trying to get a few more votes in the coming election.
