  • Great school

    I am a parent of a boy who is ending his secondary school years at St Albert the Great College in Valletta. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teachers, administration and the rector for giving my son such a valuable...

  • Rules and regulations left on paper

    The admission by planning authority CEO Johann Buttigieg that Mepa has more than 4,000 pending complaints still to investigate is not just a matter of serious concern but also a reflection of what is symptomatic of this country: a people generally...

  • No to flowers at Parliament

    I do not doubt the special ability of Renzo Piano as an architect, but I disagree with two particular proposals. Piano has visited Malta so many times that he should now know the acute problem of car parking, especially in Valletta. So why is he...

  • Is your PV performing?

    I, like many others, have entered into contracts with the Malta Resources Authority (MRA) and an approved photovoltaic (PV) supplier, for the provision and installation of a domestic PV system at my home. Part of the cost was financed by the MRA...

  • Parliamentary dictatorship

    Margaret Bianchi’s criticism of Martin Scicluna’s columnist style (April 5), and specifically the content of his feature on President George Abela’s refusal to sign the Civil Unions Bill, is unjustified on a number of counts. To denigrate...

  • Tribute to Victor Griffiths

    May I join the chorus of praise of Prof. Victor Griffiths, a great teacher and mentor. However, mine is a different story of respect and indebtedness. Some time back I discovered he was Ombudsman to the University of Malta. I presented a problem...

  • Dragging religion into politics

    The abstention of the Nationalist Opposition on the third reading of the Civil Unions Bill will reverberate for a long time to come. Disagreement with the wishy-washy stance adopted when the group abstained is being expressed from within...

  • Legal victory for journalism

    “From where, and how, the newspaper got the information was not relevant to the case because investigative journalism should always be protected even if there are mistakes in the reporting.” This is, I consider, the most relevant part of a...

  • Hunting on Sunday – a provocation

    Hunting has always been of extraordinary importance in Malta. Before we joined the EU, it was one of the main stumbling blocks that complicated negotiations. At that time the Nationalist government went out of its way to ensure a balance between...

  • Cartoon of the day

    Apologies to Mario Dingli (Times of Malta, April 8)

  • Return to Galilee for Easter

    As I shared with you a few snippets from the reflections read and prayed during the Holy Way of the Cross Pope Francis led on Good Friday, I would like to share with you few thoughts selected from the homily the Pope delivered yesterday during the...

  • THAT’S ALL RIGHT THEN

    It’s fascinating what takes the fancy of the public at large, and for that matter what takes the fancy of your average columnist. For instance, the Prime Minister’s unashamed leap onto the LGBTQ bandwagon, where a good number of votes was...

  • Supremacy of conscience and moral law

    Allow me to express my views regarding Martin Scicluna’s comments in his letter entitled ‘Legally obliged to sign the Bill’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 13). In his response to Fr Joe Borg’s article (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 6),...

  • The PN after its abstention

    The scene outside Parliament on Monday night where Nationalist MPs were loudly jeered by hundreds after abstaining in the civil unions Bill vote was not enjoyed by anyone who experienced it. Yes, some politically-motivated people were there on...

  • Thank you for helping Arka Foundation

    For the past 13 years, the Arka Foundation has administered Dar Arka, a residential home in Għajnsielem for people with disabilities. This centre, apart from offering residential services on a permanent and respite basis, also offers a wide range...

  • More education for drivers

    One of Transport Malta’s duties is to educate drivers. Drivers committing persistent offences should attend educational courses. Tangible rewards, deterrents or punishments are psychologically effective. The police can do their part as well. I...

  • With more than a touch of hypocrisy

    Lino Spiteri affirms in his article ‘Political climate warming up’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 6) “that is what the Nationalists were showing [constant negativity]”. How can anyone make such wild claims about an Opposition that voted in...

  • Save Wied Garnaw

    For the last 10 years, the Save Wied Garnaw Action Group has been campaigning so that Wied Garnaw is not destroyed by illegal commercial and urban development. This valley is one of Malta’s last remaining green lungs and is located on Malta’s...

  • The role of libraries

    Literacy is the vehicle of education, the means through which ideas, information, knowledge and wisdom are expressed and exchanged. Historically, public libraries came into being with very noble roles, propping up democratic governments which...

  • Back from the brink in Ukraine?

    Tensions were high in Ukraine last week after armed pro-Russian groups seized control of a number of buildings in about 10 towns and cities across the eastern part of the country, which has large Russian-speaking communities. The rebels are...
