  • Millennials’ addiction to substance abuse

    In today’s society young people face challenges that their parents and grandparents never had to face. We may be living in a more affluent society but it seems that being a young person today is not easy. Understanding why this apparent...

  • Minding your language

    Mind your language was a popular British sitcom. It was about a motley crew of foreign students trying to learn English. In their efforts to learn, they used inappropriate expressions which led to hilarious situations. In light of the political...

  • Good, moral leadership

    Good, moral leadership

    The outstanding homily delivered by Archbishop Charles Scicluna at the Mass celebrated in St John’s Co-Cathedral to mark Malta’s Independence was a masterclass in rhetoric and the art of communication. What’s more it was a homily delivered – as...

    Mobile phones, penalties

    Eyes on the Road is the focus of the campaign just launched by Transport Malta, the Malta Road Safety Council (MRSC) and the Ministry for Transport and Infrastructure.   As active members of the MRSC, the Malta Insurance Association (MIA) welcomes...

  • Not in the national interest

    Hearing Simon Busuttil rejoice at the news that the European People’s Party – with which the PN is affiliated – had decided to vote against Leo Brincat’s nomination for the European Court of Auditors, not only disgusted me but must have disgusted...

  • The Gozo clinic

    I would be voicing the opinion of many Gozitans as well as Maltese and foreigners who frequent the Gozo clinic in Victoria when I thank the staff for their dedicated service. However, what the clinic lacks is the presence of a second doctor.

  • What if…

    Simon Busuttil is suggesting a tunnel between Malta and Gozo and a tram or train to pass through this tunnel connecting both islands. I am baffled or perhaps naive. Let’s put this into perspective. This means that if a tram/train passes through...

  • Electoral present

    Electoral present

    It was good news to hear about the new Master Plan to rehabilitate Paceville. We hope that what is recommended in the report will become a reality. However, this letter is meant to kindly draw the attention of the authorities to St Julian’s itself.

  • Deeply disturbing

    Deeply disturbing

    It is axiomatic, practitioners of the dark art of advocacy will tell you, that when the presence of a minister is required for testimony, it is ever so likely that Affairs of State will be found so impelling that precedence would have to be given...

  • Millions for the bullies; peanuts for the natives.

    Millions for the bullies; peanuts for the natives.

    The big-moneyed bullies who are ruling the roost and making millions thanks to pre-electoral shady deals have now decided to add insult to injury. The Times of Malta informed us of this yesterday. In a story penned by Philip Leone Ganado we were...

  • Sadeen’s feet must be kept to the fire

    Twelve weeks ago, the National Commission for Further and Higher Education offered the Sadeen Group a licence to operate a university in Malta on the proviso that they adhered to 16 stringent conditions. The Commission made it plain that the...

  • Catalyst for regeneration

    Within its relatively small but densely utilised space, the locality of Paceville perhaps encompasses and represents a microcosm of all the rapid changes and challenges that Malta faces today: the search for co-existence between different types of...

  • Calypso’s moments

    Calypso’s moments

    As many know, Calypso, the nymph from Greek mythology, is the symbol that we often use to refer to the island of Gozo. We use this symbolism because Greek mythology narrates that Calypso lived on the island. The association of Gozo with Greek...

  • Unfair trial for judiciary

    Unfair trial for judiciary

    The 1964 Constitution had only one form of judicial discipline prior to the August 5, 2016 amendments – removal from office. No other form of punishment was established for minor offences of a disciplinary nature. This made the Constitution...

  • Promise not kept

    The new scholastic year has just begun and the situation regarding St Thomas More College Primary School, Marsascala is getting from bad to worse. Marsascala is one of the fastest-growing localities and this stresses out our primary school...

  • Blinkered opinion

    Roger Mifsud (September 21) is mixing things. He still thinks that the Prime Minister’s candidate for the Court of Auditors, is “Malta’s” choice. It is not Malta that sent Leo Brincat to the slaughterhouse: it was Joseph Muscat. When the...

  • Curbing betting

    I refer to the four-page, unnumbered pullout inserted in your newspaper advertising betting of all immaginable odds. Is not this form of advertising also detrimental to habit-forming  compulsive betting? One is always playing against the...

  • Thank you

    Thank you

    My wife and I wish to join other people from Mosta in thanking wholeheartedly outgoing parish priest Albert Buhagiar for his service during the last four years. He endeared himself to us. Although we will miss him greatly, we understand that he is...

  • Brexiters were not conned

    I refer to Seb Tanti Burlo’s cartoon of September 16 and accompanying text.  Let it be clearly understood that the people of Great Britain were not conned. We were told lie after lie by leaders of Remain, for example that there were no plans for a...

  • The only way is up

    In his article ‘The horse has bolted’ (September 20) John Craske went overboard in his remarks over the St Julian’s Bay area. I agree like everyone else that buildings which are not in line are an eyesore,  but where land is scarce such as in...
