  • Our own airline

    What a disastrous, demeaning and shambolic situation Air Malta finds itself in. Dealing with Alitalia, a company that is bankrupt, losing €500,000 a day as openly declared by its chairman and boasting that it will not cost them a cent to acquire...

  • Renaissance research

    I am a third-year student at the University of Malta reading for a history of art honours degree. I am doing research on Renaissance paintings in the Maltese islands for my undergraduate dissertation. As part of my research, I am trying to...

  • A leader’s gamble

    A leader’s gamble

    In several comments responding to my last article 'The vain and the infantile' I was taken to task by some readers for criticising just about everyone but somehow staying clear from Joseph Muscat.  While I remain indebted to those who choose to...

  • Traffic on the way to school

    Road users must be dreading the opening of the new scholastic year as thousands of students, pupils and their parents take to the roads to arrive for lessons on time. Traffic congestion has become one of the most serious worries of most people as...

  • Separated but undivided

    In a year’s time, Christian churches, both Catholic and Evangelical, will be commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation initiated by Martin Luther. In October 1517, Luther published his famous 95 challenges to established...

  • The Greek gifts in Gżira

    The non-violent direct action carried out by Kamp Emerġenza Ambjent (KEA) at Manoel Island was a welcome breath of fresh air in terms of environmental politics in this country. The KEA activists basically enabled access to the foreshore of Manoel...

  • Judicial appointments

    Judicial appointments

    Until August 4, 2016, members of the judiciary were appointed by the government. No consultation was held on such appointments consisting in a unilateral decision based on political patronage. Nor was any evaluation carried out of prospective...

  • The voice of reason

    I am so happy to see that Din l-Art Ħelwa has taken the initiative to try to stop the madness of the Townsquare and Mrieħel high-rise projects that are nothing but proposed monuments to human greed at its worst. I support DLĦ completely and I...

  • Destroyer of peace

    “The greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion because it is a war against the child, a direct killing of the innocent child, murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other...

  • Loyal support

    As a Scottish person supporting Malta, I was really saddened to see so many Malta supporters leave the ground before the final whistle. Scottish fans always support their team till the end, no matter the score. Maybe in future, if Maltese fans get...

  • An inferior status

    I was always reluctant to agree with many Gozitans who said that Gozo always takes second place when compared to Malta. Under the previous administration, I was of the idea that Gozo was getting its fair share of projects but now it seems we are...

  • Who can offer new politics?

    The European Parliament’s rejection of Leo Brincat for a post on the European Court of Auditors, with its echoes of the Panama scandal, sets the tone for the new political season traditionally kicked off by Independence celebrations, which take...

  • Deckchairs on Comino

    Recent weeks have seen the publication in newspapers and in social media of considerable commentary on the Blue Lagoon and the renting of deck chairs and umbrellas. We are two providers who want to put the record straight. Much of what has been...

  • Please rebuild St Elmo lighthouse

    Please rebuild St Elmo lighthouse

    The Grand Harbour Regeneration Committee was responsible for the restoration of Fort St Elmo, which was concluded last year. This project originally included the reconstruction of the once famous St Elmo Lighthouse. Unfortunately, this unique and...

  • What do pets do when we’re away?

    What do pets do when we’re away?

    Do you cross the road when you see a dog on a leash five kilometres away? Do you roll your eyes when the person you’re doing small talk with at a party starts telling you about antics of her cat? Do you think that rabbits are only good as a...

  • Local Church’s crusade for progress

    I refer to Salvu Mallia’s article ‘Culture: Malta’s Cinderella abused by two ugly sisters’ (September 10). An appreciation of his presentation of the Maltese way of life, culture and society in the programme Madwarna would not be out of place. The...

  • Solution to our waste woes

    Growing up in Malta in the 1960s, I vividly remember the Keep Malta Tidy campaign, and as a boy I dreamt that Malta could easily rea­lise these goals and become clean and tidy. How wrong I was. Here I am, half a century later, at the forefront of...

  • Not an argument about religious beliefs

    My attention has been drawn to an article by Fr Joe Borg (‘Teaching Francis Some Christianity’, September 4). I am deeply, deeply flattered to find excerpts from my writings over the last three years on Pope Francis (who I greatly admire as a...

  • Manoel Park – we’re worth it

    I can understand why the call to reopen access to Manoel Island resonates with so many. The islet is a microcosm of the country – its history mirroring that of Malta. First it was occupied by foreign powers and now a corporate takeover of public...
