  • Public transport efficiency

    We all know how important an efficient public transport system is for tourism. I would like to suggest a change in bus route 101 and/or 102 that goes from Mellieħa to Golden Bay and then to Ġnejna. It is ridiculous that the bus first passes from...

  • Gozo bus service

    Gozo has always had an efficient bus service and I don’t want it to degenerate due to a lack of common sense. Last Sunday I was on bus 301 going from the Mġarr ferry to Victoria, along with many other passengers. The bus arrived at the Victoria...

  • Excellent initiative

    Excellent initiative

    I refer to the article ‘We’ve bought a ship to save the migrants’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 13) which highlighted the commendable effort by Christopher and Regina Catrambone to purchase a vessel with the aim of picking up ‘boat people’. At...

  • Bisazza Street

    Every now and then someone, with an obvious personal agenda, writes for Bisazza Street, Sliema, to be de-pedestrianised. No valid reason is given except to further the interests of Qui-si-Sana residents. It appears that these people think they...

  • Loss of trust

    A specialist on German foreign policy at the European Council on Foreign Relations has described the US as a “weak superpower” whose spying methods and surveillance on other countries is solely driven by a feeling of insecurity. The expulsion last...

  • Germany on top of the world

    Germany on top of the world

    Germany’s victory in the World Cup is a symbol of the country’s emergence as a major world power, a European economic powerhouse, Europe’s leader and a nation very much at ease with itself after years of shyness and apprehension. This is Germany’s...

  • Granuled Granaries

    The Granaries in Floriana are considered to be a convenient mass gathering venue by the majority of the Maltese population. Very few people know what the granaries are or when they were built. Most people, in fact, don’t care. They only care about...

  • Common fronts and vigilantes

    This column has consistently argued that it is unwise to talk about migration only when some or other perceived crisis or emergency crops up. Accordingly, I wish to make three somewhat disconnected points on the subject. The first concerns...

  • Courting the Chinese dragon

    China has become a major economic powerhouse and is the second largest economy in the world. Globalisation has been a key success factor and the main driver in modernising the economy and the infrastructure of that country. China registered a 7.5...

  • Negativity back and flourishing

    Negativism is alive and well and living main­­ly at Pietà, at PN headquarters. If by nothing else, consider that in the context of the hounding of Sai Mizzi Liang, the appointee of Malta Enterprise to drum up business in China. The attacks on her...

  • Time for ministerial blues

    Media reports on how Education Minister Evarist Bartolo handled the Skolasajf fiasco say that he has publicly admitted he was irked by the way he was misled into believing that everything would be ‘all right on the night’, when in fact those...

  • It is the silly season

    Every now and again we get a bout of collective hand-wringing because of some survey showing that the great majority of the Maltese people haven’t read anything other than an article in Hello magazine for the past 10 years. This is usually...

  • Human rights: your rights, my rights

    In the mid-1990s I was one of the journalists who covered the visit of a Maltese delegation led by Eddie Fenech Adami, then prime minister, to the People’s Republic of China. It was quite a large delegation. Most, if I remember correctly, came...

  • Out of the box

    Out of the box

    To be honest, I’d never heard the name Jonathan Glazier before Under the Skin started screening at St James Cavalier. Many of you are probably shaking their heads at me, but what can I say. When I read that he is the director behind Scarlett...

    ‘Can the children stop the war when they grow up?’

    I have just spent a day on a tiny boat, with a straw hat on, a fishing rod and a rickety umbrella for shade. And all through the morning I watched and watched as hundreds of day trippers were dumped by ferries on the barren island of Comino and...

  • Summer Sunday ‘fun’ at the beach

    “Alfred... fancy a day at the beach?” “What? You’re kidding, right?” “No, it’s Sunday, it’s summer. It’ll be lovely at Għadira or Armier or Għajn Tuffieħa or Ġnejna or ... ” “Are you feeling alright, woman? Yeah, right, it is summer and Sunday.

  • Sighing no sigh of relief

    Like most humans I have some trusted friends, the ones you listen to because they tell you the truth and the whole truth with no colouring or chiselling. Strangely they have told me very worrying stuff. One actually said that the PN, with its...
