    Does it really make a difference for you Mr Mizzi if the referees get paid or not?? In all your previous posts & comments you always blame or question referees!! I think its about time you identify yourself and if you have any valid suggestions please do share them!! Altough some times we dont agree with their decisions we should be greatfull to the referees for their excellent work!
