  • It will always be a partyocracy

    Do you fancy seeing a much larger-than-life Joseph Muscat on your commute every morning? Are you relishing the prospect of continuing to study Konrad Mizzi’s profile while stuck in traffic? Think you’ll miss the massive Keith Schembri visage on...

  • Ambassadors on their bikes

    Ambassadors on their bikes

    It was good to see a number of ambassadors to Malta riding bicycles along the Ta’ Xbiex front, thus setting an example to others to use this type of transport to travel the relatively small distances that we have in Malta. However, it was most...

  • Do not leave the media alone

    Is it true that the Court found Jason Azzopardi not guilty of criminal libel as accused by the police on the advice of the Attorney General? The answer is: not true. I don’t blame you if this surprises you. If you follow the media, you would have...

  • Residents matter too

    As a resident of Castle Street, Victoria, I have come to the conclusion that somebody in authority has it in for those of us who live here. For the past two years we have had to put up with constant noise, dirt and dust, even on Sundays and public...

  • A dyspeptic overview of airline catering…

    There are few more sobering culinary experiences than to be squashed into a cattle-class seat on a Boeing 747, then to have a plastic tray laden with a quite repellent melange of… inedible mush, aka airline food, dumped onto your lap. What is it...

  • No change, no progress

    George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950) had written: “Progress is impossible without change; and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” Many are terrified of progress, but humanity has always sought progress, as without it there is...

  • The future of Air Malta

    The news, revealed by the Times of Malta, that the government has wrapped up negotiations on the future of Air Malta, and will be selling a substantial stake of the national airline to the UAE’s Etihad Airways, sounds good in principle, but one...

  • Doctrine of the Atonement

    “What are we to make of the thought that Jesus died for our sins?” asks Elizabeth Anderson in her article ‘If God is Dead’, is everything permitted? “This core religious teaching of Christianity takes Jesus to be a scapegoat for humanity.  The...

  • Of bait, fodder and provocation

    Journalists should always remain journalists whether they are working with the independent media or employed by organisations belonging to political parties. They have a duty to ask, demand answers and present the facts to their audiences. They...

  • Bribery report

    I refer to the article ‘Official chose not to call police on alleged bribery’ (April 20). The impression that the police were unaware of the allegations or that the Foundation for Tomorrow’s Schools did not report the allegations to the...

  • New form of lightning

    Let me congratulate the Grand Harbour Regeneration Corporation and the restoration unit on their discovery of a brand new form of lightning. The picture of the lighting bracket on the front elevation of Castille that appeared in the Times of...

  • Reserved parking

    Reserved parking

    The reserved parking bay next door to the Paola health centre is being used mainly by doctors even though they have their own reserved parking spaces. It is not the first time that I had to phone the police. On the day I am writing this letter, I...

  • Outside the echo chamber

    Our leaders have lost the ability to turn their words into actions and to make hard decisions. We have fostered a complacent community that is not willing to expend any cognitive resources to form a coherent thought about sensitive, taboo...

  • PN gaffes

    As I write I am watching theparliamentary session discussing the motion of no confidence in the government. Till now, the ‘Konrad Mizzi’ campaign embarked upon by Simon Busuttil has been massive, direct and a factor of unity that makes the...

  • When judges make law

    ‘Trust in independence of judiciary at less than half’ (April 12) is sadly most telling. Your editorial (April 1) criticises Magistrate Joe Mifsud for making “misguided recommendations” extraneous to the judiciary’s decision-making role. Add to...

  • What an incredible mess

    Since I was young, I was taught to respect the golden rule that in any competition one respects the result, especially when one is the loser. Three years ago, the general elections gave the Labour Party an outstanding victory. As an activist in...

  • David Bruce Military Hospital

    I was Corporal Maund, the company clerk working for Major Thorn, company officer, during 1953 and 1954. There was also L/Cpl Brian J Hunt, clerk to Major Mullington, the quartermaster. We were both RAMC national servicemen although Brian ...
