    Flyovers flying back in our faces

    Traffic is a constant nightmare on this little island of ours and I, for one, cannot wait to see the end of the Kappara project so that maybe someday the morning commute does not take so ridiculously long as it does now. To be frank, the project...

    The Marlene impact

    What is Marlene Farrugia’s impact on Malta’s political situation? On November 30, 2015, I published an article in the Times of Malta entitled ‘Marlene’s Moment’. I hypothesised that Farrugia’s resignation from the Labour Party could be indicative...

  • Coalition clarifications

    My opinion piece in the Times of Malta (April 10) seems to have caused quite a stir. Judging from a recent poll on timesofmalta.com, it sparked quite a bit of interest and the idea of a coalition has generally met with approval. While having...

  • The Lands Authority – a new era

    Almost a year ago, Parliamentary Secretary Deborah Schembri was chosen by the Prime Minister to embark on a radical administrative reform of the Government Property Division (commonly referred to as the Lands Department). This decision was made in...

  • Fast ferry service

    The introduction of a fast ferry service between the two islands has now been in the offing for decades. In fact the first step was introduced when Gozo had its first energetic minister a couple of decades ago. Since then, very...

  • BBC Malta feature

    Maltese traditions and religious customs were embraced and eulogised on BBC Radio 4 on Easter Sunday at a time when processions with the statue of the Risen Christ were greeted by enthusiastic if somewhat excited crowds waiting for the...

  • On first-name basis

    The gospel of Tuesday in the Octave of Easter tells the story of Mary Magdalene’s meeting with the Risen Jesus “outside the tomb” (John 20:11). She recognised our Lord when he called her name: “Mary” (John 20:16). The Expositor’s Greek...

  • Rave parties

    How disgusting – the Malta Tourism Authority helped in theorganisation of two rave parties on the holiest days of the year, Good Friday and Holy Saturday. I don’t want to hear that not everyone is a practising Christian.  I know that well enough.

    Shot in the foot

    Through consumption of local agriculture produce, the local farming community will not be the only stakeholder to benefit but also will society at large. The farm-to-fork concept means produce travels much less until it arrives at the consumer,...

    Editorial: The Prime Minister’s crises

    Two images will remain seared in people’s minds from the latest crisis of confidence that has engulfed Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. One is of a man and a woman, owner and risk manager, respectively, of a shady bank, leaving the bank’s offices...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (1)

    With reference to the article ‘MMR vaccine and autism – the movie ‘they don’t want you to see’” (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16), the Malta Association of Public Health Medicine, the Malta College of Family Doctors, the Malta Paediatrics...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (2)

    Kathryn Borg has once more overstepped a red line by misleading readers with a highly biased article which can harm public health (“MMR vaccine – the movie ‘that they don’t want you to see’”, The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16). In the article...

    More money doesn’t lead to happiness

    When I meet farmers or people whose work brings them in direct contact with the land, I invariably go away with the feeling that their passion for work makes them appreciate a sense of balance in life. “Once our basic needs are met, we’re happy,”...

    Polarised France at the polls

    Today’s first-round election in France sees 11 candidates competing in the presidential race. There are four front-runners, two of whom are on the fringes of the political spectrum – which shows just how polarised French public opinion has become.

  • Article on MMR vaccine (4)

    People all over the world, especially children, are currently suffering as a result of the burden from the incorrect and falsified publication related to the MMR vaccines in the past. Let us not be responsible for bringing back diseases which were...

  • For the greater good of Malta…

    Malta is currently going through a very rough patch. Sad and shameful allegations and news are hitting the wires, punching holes in the soul of Malta’s economic bedrock. As president of the Malta Institute of Accountants, I am deeply concerned. We...

    Wied il-Għomor

    I remember, as a child, Wied il-Għomor was much bigger than it is now. Trees grew on both sides of the valley until the two sides were both built up. One side is known as ‘The Village’, although it was then part of Mensija, whereas the other side...
