  • Separation of roles

    I do not have a legal background and do not claim to have understood all that Michael Falzon wrote in his article entitled ‘Please expunge this archaic law’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, October 12). However, I agree completely with the need to have...

  • Chaotic traffic situation

    Chaotic traffic situation

    The chaotic traffic situation in Malta cannot go on. We have reached a point of no return – over 300,000 cars plus public buses and private coaches cannot converge safely and efficiently on our roads. Tourism will suffer while the Maltese...

  • Unregulated settlements at Armier

    Joseph Muscat is right to allow the Armier boathouse people to obtain properly paid services from Enemalta and not to further criminalise them by denying them their basic human rights. What next? I have visited these settlements and note they are...

  • Permanent deacons

    The article on the Archbishop’s decision on deacons (Times of Malta, October 13) included the following reference to Joe Farrugia, the Archbishop’s delegate for the laity: “Mr Farrugia remarked that permanent deacons could be very useful as part...

  • Not the right bus ticket

    Last Tuesday at 4.20pm I took bus number 2 to Cospicua. Entering the bus, I noticed there was no ticket machine. The driver was not wearing a white shirt, which is part of the usual uniform, but a grey one. As a senior citizen, I gave him 50 cents...

  • Hunting bias

    The highly biased article by Mark Anthony Falzon, ‘Hunting suspension, bad politics’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, October 12) needs to be considered by the authorities, or better still by both Joseph Muscat and Simon Busuttil. As chairman of the...

  • Presence of V18 personnel

    I refer to the review by Jo Caruana regarding the performance by the Notik Dance Company at Pjazza Teatru Rjal (The Sunday Times of Malta, September 14), as well as to the letter by Anne Zammit on September 21. Caruana remarked that Notik’s...

  • Marsalforn road

    Marsalforn road

    I refer to the article ‘Hotel owners take action against Land Department’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, September 28), I think the incredible saga that has evolved is not sufficiently well explained in this article. There was nothing mysterious or...

  • Educational system

    I refer to the letter by Martin Spillane, ‘The jug theory of learning’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, October 12) in reply to my letter about education. Part of his criticism seems to be directed more at other systems of education than the one I...

  • The Church must look ahead

    Archbishop Paul Cremona’s resignation should not come as a surprise to most observers. Talk about his possible departure has been circulating for months, amid rumours that Mgr Cremona was suffering from ill-health. In a rare press appearance...

  • Voices concert 2014 criticism

    I have always been a keen supporter of Voices and I always make it a point to attend their concerts together with family and friends. This year was no exception, and while I thank the organisers, choir members, musicians and all participants I...

  • Delayed power station

    Way back before the elections, Joseph Muscat gave us a date detailing when his power station would be ready. As we get closer to that date he now tells us this project has been delayed by a few months. This time he’s not even giving us a date.

  • Homes for the elderly

    Homes for the elderly is a topic that has interested many from all walks of life and has been the subject of several discussions organised by the two major political parties. As we all know, people are living into an advanced age and,...

  • Nobel winner: social but not anti-market

    Many academics teaching financial services regulation around the world are feeling very happy these days... one of their breed has made it to the Nobels. The award of the 2014 Nobel Prize for Economics to Frenchman Jean Marc Tirole must come to be...

  • Not a smart reward for squatters

    The announcement that the government will be supplying electricity to all the squatters at the illegal shanty town in Armier is an affront to anyone who respects the rule of law in this country. Back in August, this newspaper reported that the...

  • Would you buy a used car?

    Would you buy a used car?

    From this man, I mean. I have always had this sneaking feeling that he’s nothing better than a snake oil salesman of a politician, however, developments over the last few days have given me an even stronger moral conviction that what I used to say...

  • Promises

    What with the one-time payment of €25 per family for the largest electricity blackout and the announced €1.16 per week rise in salary, the Labour government has really created a new middle class, as promised before the last election.
