  • This is a trustworthy country

    The unusual and unexpected snap election the Prime Minister decided to call on May 1 attracted world attention. It was unusual because a prime minister does not normally announce such an important national event during a partisan meeting. It is...

  • Is Joseph a strong leader?

    Joseph Muscat has been present in my political and sociological experiences for the past 20 years or so. This goes back to the run-up to the 1996 general election. Prospective prime minister Alfred Sant was depicted as the moderniser of Malta. ...

  • Building on our successes

    As is fairly evident from reading newspapers, watching TV and participating in blogs, Europe has been experiencing a relatively uncertain economic phase over the past years. Malta, however, has not experienced this uncertainty in the same way as...

  • Credit where credit is due

    The Labour machine has gone into overdrive screaming out that the reason to vote Labour, notwithstanding its tainted stint in power, is to maintain stability and keep the economy going. Those seem to be the mainstays of their pitch to the Maltese...

  • I choose environment

    It is so unfortunate that even in this election, the hunting and trapping issue has been put on the agenda when it doesn’t need to be there. There are many environmental issues that need to be tackled in our islands and this is the time for...

  • Revisiting the nation-state

    The tension between globalism and nationalism is a key emerging issue in Europe. These two elements are often perceived to be antithetical to one another. The defeated Front National candidate for the French presidency, Marine Le Pen, made this a...

  • Disgraceful behaviour

    On April 28, my husband had his sixth session of physiotherapy at Saint James Hospital, in Sliema. As he went in, he found an Eastern-like lady with two other foreigners who looked like hospital staff. When the physiotherapist started speaking to...

  • Immediate action

    Reference is made to the article ‘Ramp in Paceville is finally made safer’ (May 16). Although it seems that attention had been drawn to the dangerous state of this particular ramp in Paceville, no action had been taken until an elderly woman...

  • Property ownership

    Property ownership

    Less than a year ago, I invested in a property in the heart of Valletta to be my home. I have since come to discover that property ownership can quickly become a nightmare. My property has all permits in order. It is located in the centre of...

  • Editorial: No, they’re not the same

    It may be the fear of having their names revealed or it may be genuine uncertainty. Whatever the reason, a large number of people still fall into the “undecided” category when asked by pollsters who they intend to vote for in two weeks’ time.

  • About peanuts and lollipops

    It is not usual for me to write criticising opinions of regular columnists in this paper but last Sunday’s contribution by Michela Spiteri so irked me that I felt compelled to write. My own daughter attended the same school in the 1980s, a choice...

  • Dangerous situation in Korean peninsula

    US President Donald Trump should take Russian President Vladimir Putin’s   advice and stop harassing North Korea. Only patience and dialogue can bring about a peaceful solution, not bombs. It takes two to tango, as the saying goes. Korean leader...

  • Fight Gotham City

    Fight Gotham City

    Every year you go to your accountant and you ask him the same question: can I pay less taxes? The accountant gets out his calculator, punches the keys with his fingertips, applying a lot of pressure on each digit, and then sighs, shakes his head...

  • Leave the Referendum Act alone

    To me as a simple citizen, as, I would imagine, to the vast majority of my fellow citizens of Malta, it is highly objectionable that any organisation (be it a hunters lobby, or whatever), or individual, tries to take away from us, or deny us, our...

  • Vote PN or PD to eliminate corruption

    On March 8, 2003, the Maltese voted in a referendum on whether we should join the European Union. The Labour Party, under the leadership of Alfred Sant, rejected the results, even though 53.6 voted in favour of joining the EU. Eddie Fenech Adami...

    In the national interest

    Calling all switchers and floating voters – Malta needs you, Malta needs you as never before. This is no time to dither, Malta is at the veritable crossroads. In 2013 you may have been lured by Joseph Muscat’s sweet talk, but now that you have...

  • Many reasons to vote out the government

    There are various reasons to vote against the government at the next election. In four years it has managed to give Malta a cheap name by selling our nationality and passports for fast money. It has spoilt our islands’ environment, with...
