  • Excellent health system

    Allow me to express my heartfelt thanks and gratitude to the doctors, nurses, paramedics and care workers at the Paediatric Ward of Mater Dei Hospital for their dedication, professionalism and service which is always given with a smile. The same...

    Falsities about the shipwreck

    Mark Gatt’s article (‘St Paul’s voyage and shipwreck: the ship and its wise captain’, The Sunday Times of Malta, February 5) had some very good points and the author must have carried out extensive research. However, I believe he made the same...

  • Amoris Laetitia – the controversy

    Celebrating my 50 years of priesthood, with all the pastoral experience I humbly acquired, I strongly believe that Pope Francis’s exhortation Amoris Laetitia, especially chapter eight, came as an extraordinary pastoral tool which will help one and...

  • Transport Malta please note

    I would like to put two simple questions to Transport Malta. If I am not mistaken, buses are to stop adjacent to pavements at bus stops to enable elderly people to board or leave the bus without the least possible inconvenience. I have been using...

  • Welcome to the People’s Republic of Gozo…

    The news that the authorities may be contemplating abolishing the Ministry of Gozo has prompted a somewhat extreme response from some Gozitans. With the prospect of our sister island once more falling under the direct jurisdiction of Malta, a new...

  • MFA’s red card to journalists

    The last Malta Football Association council meeting held late last month had a very significant item on its agenda. The matter came up for discussion after member club representatives were informed about a series of proposals dealing with the...

  • Private lives and public interest

    All it takes to get the country’s hormone levels up a notch is one blogger backed by a few sordid politicians and fewer still behind-the-scenes movers and shakers frantically clicking away on their laptops and raising hell about an alleged sex...

  • Is history dead?

    Yosanne Vella History is a subject which offers many challenges for students. It is an area where howling mistakes are quite common, to say the least. Throughout my career I have come across some errors which did raise an eyebrow. I remember a...

  • The ECHR and Malta

    The ECHR and Malta

    I refer to recent media reports that a man was awarded €10,000 and costs by the European Court of Human Rights for the findings of a denial of a fair trial. Though I am completely extraneous to the case, my name was mentioned, leaving me no...

  • Poverty is no perception

    With reference to the article ‘Poverty is real in Malta’ (February 7), the Ministry for the Family and Social Solidarity fully concurs with George Zammit’s statement that poverty is not a perception but a reality. That is why the ministry will...

  • Out of touch

    I’m shocked and appalled by the editorial ‘It’s only right if abortion’s wrong’ (February 7). I presume this newspaper employs journalists who are interested in truthful reporting but this cannot be the case if the Times of Malta then runs such an...

  • Save the flour mill

    Save the flour mill

    Millions of euros are being spent in the area of Buskett forest. Well done. Unknown to many is the underground emergency flour mill in the area of Tar-Roba, which is literally a few metres away from the Buskett trail. This mill is different from...

  • Fragile freedom of expression

    Political parties have an uncanny habit of trying to outdo each other not only in what is best for the country and its people but also in matters that stink and that may even constitute an outright threat to democracy. Economy Minister Chris...

  • The emerging contradiction

    The recent survey on household finance and consumption published by the Central Bank of Malta has punctually evidenced the glaring paradox characterising present times in Malta, that of a country where remarkable economic growth is being...

  • Down a slippery slope

    Down a slippery slope

    I believe that unless Malta makes a dramatic change in course, we could well run the risk of our actions leading us to a situation with potentially catastrophic consequences. We are becoming more and more obsessed with material excesses. As a...

  • Moving beyond fake news

    Contemporary politics is fast reducing itself to hollow catchphrases.  Currently, the new political buzzword is ‘fake news’. Living in a post-truth era underlines the fact  that information is based merely on engineered sources. Essentially, fake...

  • Valletta: striking a balance

    Urban regeneration is a process spanning decades.  Valletta’s regeneration gained momentum with several public sector projects in the last 15 years.  These have generated renewed interestin the city and were an incentive for private sector...
