  • Fixation or realism?

    I refer to the letter by Kevin Hodson titled ‘Realist not a racist’ (August 13). He seems to believe I think he is a racist. In my previous correspondence, I was careful not to use that epithet. However, I do believe he has a fixation about...

  • Belligerent drivers

    While driving through Żebbuġ towards Mdina I was in the right lane as my intention was to go around the roundabout at the entrance to Żebbuġ (after the Toyota garage). There were cars behind me and to my left, the lane to go into Żebbuġ. I left...

  • Assassins of memory

    So much has been said in defence of keeping what is left of Sliema’s Maltese architectural character and Mediterranean skyline and so much has been disregarded by the authorities, who seem to have other priorities. In the name of a false notion of...

  • How many hours do you sleep?

    How many hours do you sleep?

    Tonight the Olympics will come to an end, but I cannot say that I’ll miss the games. It’s been too distant, too far off, too Zika-fuelled. Plus no television channel was ever showing the games bar for RAI Due, which only showed Italian athletes to...

  • Lack of transparency

    How absurd that we are still waiting for the results of what six months ago Konrad Mizzi described as the “unprecedented step” of asking the Inland Revenue Commissioner to audit his financial affairs as well as the results of the second audit he...

  • Missing the trees for the wood

    The call for a boycott of business interests owned by the Gasan and Tumas groups is one of the most foolish ideas I’ve come across in a long time. First, it is completely unrealistic and can only fail miserably. The thing with large and...

  • Helping South Sudan

    I would like to express my deep gratitude to the Mission Fund for supporting us Maltese missionaries. The Mission Fund is a partner in our mission in South Sudan and through its invaluable support seven boreholes have been drilled, giving access...

  • Safeguarding the dignity of inmates

    There are moments when we can make a real difference in someone’s life. This was one of them. With the launch of the new Trans, Gender Variant and Intersex Policy for inmates at Corradino Correctional Facility, Malta became one of the first EU...

  • Health is wealth

    Malta residents now today Need to be watchful and look both ways. Tons of development trucks daily on the prey Noisily and dustily on their way To create a Babel of Tower sway. If this offends your lungs and nose, Don’t worry dears, just, keep...

  • All their votes are equal

    Expecting the chairman of the new Environment and Resources Authority to have a deciding say on buildings in urban areas at the Planning Authority is a complete misunderstanding of the state of play following the Mepa demerger. Victor Axiak may...

  • Interview with MUT president

    I read with interest Kurt Sansone’s interview with Kevin Bonello, the president of the MUT (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 31). The interview dealt with so many issues related to teaching but I will restrict my comments to Mr Sansone’s initial...

  • Holding your own (pencil)

    Mothers worry about their children. Which is not to say that fathers don’t. In earnest antici­pation of the ‘don’t-generalise-brigade’, let me make it clear that I’m very aware that some mothers don’t and that some fathers do (and very much). Even...

  • Human life: valuable and inviolable

    Human life: valuable and inviolable

    I refer to the interview with Louise Vella entitled ‘Not scared to live or die’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 31). Ms Vella argues “If I cannot love life and cannot laugh anymore, just let me be. Aren’t we meant to live a full life and then...

  • Courage of our convictions

    There is only one thing stronger than all the armies of the world: and that is an idea whose time has come. That is what Victor Hugo had said. And it holds true for all the major transformations in society. The protection of human rights, gender...

  • Gozitan composer

    I would like to congratulate the young Gozitan composer and maestro di cappella of the St Mary’s parish church of Żebbuġ, Gozo, for the composition and performance of his Missa Sanctae Mariae Assumpta Est, which was performed for the first time in...

  • Era of big-moneyed bullies

    The era of the barunijiet is over. Welcome to the era of the big-moneyed bullies. Before the 1996 general election campaign Alfred Sant very ably came up with two metaphors which caught the people’s imagination so much that they became part of...

  • Prompt action

    I would like to thank Enemalta for the prompt action taken to repair a lamp in Żabbar Road, Żabbar. I also appreciate the assistance and attention given to me by a Żabbar local council employee who followed up my complaint by contacting Enemalta...

  • Myths on rent regulation

    The recent NSO survey on rent prices has confirmed a phenomenon that had already been perceived by many. A sudden surge in demand for rental properties, which led to a vertiginous upswing in the asking prices of rents, has exposed the perils of an...
