    Out of the box

    To be honest, I’d never heard the name Jonathan Glazier before Under the Skin started screening at St James Cavalier. Many of you are probably shaking their heads at me, but what can I say. When I read that he is the director behind Scarlett...

  • ‘Can the children stop the war when they grow up?’

    ‘Can the children stop the war when they grow up?’

    I have just spent a day on a tiny boat, with a straw hat on, a fishing rod and a rickety umbrella for shade. And all through the morning I watched and watched as hundreds of day trippers were dumped by ferries on the barren island of Comino and...

  • Summer Sunday ‘fun’ at the beach

    “Alfred... fancy a day at the beach?” “What? You’re kidding, right?” “No, it’s Sunday, it’s summer. It’ll be lovely at Għadira or Armier or Għajn Tuffieħa or Ġnejna or ... ” “Are you feeling alright, woman? Yeah, right, it is summer and Sunday.

  • Sighing no sigh of relief

    Like most humans I have some trusted friends, the ones you listen to because they tell you the truth and the whole truth with no colouring or chiselling. Strangely they have told me very worrying stuff. One actually said that the PN, with its...

  • DEPLORABLE DOESN’T START

    The appointment of Dr Wenzu Mintoff to the Bench of Judges is deplorable in so many ways it’s difficult to know where to start. You can start from the unseemly haste with which the appointment was rushed through: the only hint was buried in the...

  • ‘Perjury’ case

    I refer to the report ‘Tycoon accused of perjury in civil case’ (July 9). I would like to give a wider picture to the case to eliminate certain negative impressions which could have arisen from this report. A civil court case is currently pending...

  • The more things change

    The more things change

    I went along to the 2Cellos concert, opening the Malta International Arts Festival, and it was superb and then some. The things those guys do with their instruments would probably have Mozart and Vivaldi standing in rapturous applause,...

  • Working towards greater efficiency

    A discussion paper by The Today Public Policy Institute on how 10 years of EU membership have changed the country is not exactly the kind of material one would wish to read on a deckchair on the beach in summer. However, there is enough food for...

  • Vatican neutrality

    After weeks of football matches, on the Sunday night of July 13, the Germans won against the Argentinians making them the world champions for 2014. When contacted on the morrow at Vatican City, the prefect of the Pontifical Household, Archbishop...

  • ‘Europeans’ don’t exist

    ‘Europeans’ don’t exist

    In his article ‘Did Dalli act bizarrely?’ (July 10), Ranier Fsadni used phrases such as “One has to show that Europeans, generally, would not have minded” and “one would need to show that such behaviour is not ‘bizarre’ for Europeans.” While Dr...

  • Targeting civilians unacceptable

    Targeting civilians unacceptable

    Further to the article ‘Gaza civilians flee following bitter warning’ (July 14), I would count myself among those who accept that Israel has a right to defend itself from incoming Hamas rockets. Nevertheless, I am shocked and appalled at Israel’s...

  • The working poor in Malta

    There are at least three ways of looking at the economy. The first is to look at it solely as a tool for companies to make profits quickly. The second is to look at it as a way to ensure the majority have their pockets lined with money in the...

  • Nepotistic Labour

    Times of Malta has done a sterling job of exposing the nepotism at the heart of the Labour administration. In revealing that Sai Mizzi – the Energy Minister’s wife – is receiving over €13,000 every month in a quasi-ambassadorial pay package, it...

  • TVM viewership and reporting

    Stanley Clews (July 12) appears to be misinformed about TVM news’ audiences. The latest independent surveys confirm that TVM news has increased not decreased in viewership. Mr Clews is also incorrect to imply that TVM concealed Police Commissioner...

  • Arts and matriculation: FAIL

    So the advanced and intermediate matriculation results were published yesterday. I won’t go into detail about the worrying figures with respect to traditional subjects like maths and Maltese, because the excellent editorial on today’s Times of...

  • Jumping the ferry queue

    As a regular user of the Gozo ferry, I notice that quite frequently when the last car of an earlier lane boards, a late arrival whizzes up the empty lane to board, before the first car in the next lane has a chance to do so. Apart from the obvious...

  • Smartphone in the driving seat

    When the compulsory use of seat belts in cars was introduced some years ago, the safety measure was soon accepted by most motorists through effective enfrocement. However, several dangerous practices still exist on the road, such as using the...
