  • Sustainability of the euro

    I was disappointed in Peter Apap Bologna’s ‘Commitment of an ideal’ (November 11), in suggesting that I “present some of the usual rants of the English Eurosceptic”. Firstly, I would like him to know that I voted “remain” in the referendum in...

  • University’s role

    The University’s role should be to teach or entice students to think critically. So students who attend the University and do not learn to think critically, reason, argue logically, try to see all the viewpoints, consider all the opinions, are...

  • Mobile phone safety

    Mobile phone safety

    Last May, the National Toxicology Programme of the US issued a preliminary report about a study that produced unexpected results on the issue of mobile phone safety. The study, conducted over a number of years, on the exposure of rodents to...

  • Anti-flu jab

    How come health officials never promote the various proven ways to avoid the flu when autumn approaches rather than encourage us to get vaccinated? What puzzles you is that pharmaceutical companies have to guess which strain will be going around...

  • Help to missions

    On behalf of my diocese, I would like to express my thanks to the Mission Fund and to all those who contribute to this fund that helps the missions. I will be using their donation to further my social work and the formation of the clergy in the...

  • Secondary-door tactics becoming norm

    The Prime Minister and his Cabinet colleagues may run away from waiting journalists but they cannot hide. Admittedly, having journalists breathing down your neck and monitoring your every move is not exactly something to look forward to. However,...

  • Trump: opportunity for Libya?

    President-elect Donald Trump, a man whose name is synonymous with deal making, shall soon be at the helm of the world’s foremost superpower. This may play to Libya’s advantage. It is even plausible we may see stability in the region after five...

  • If juror knows victim

    The jury system in Malta was introduced under British rule and has been with us in criminal trials ever since. It is aimed at putting the law in people’s hands within the framework of a set of procedural rules. In other words and in the case of...

  • Political entrepreneurship is essential

    Sometimes people think of politics as a faraway thing, that it’s about elections, voting every five years and about self-interested politicians in Parliament. Some people imagine that if they just don’t talk about elections and political parties,...

  • Infringing EU rules

    Infringing EU rules

    How is it possible for Malta to assume the European Union presidency in January when at the same time it will be infringing the EU competition rules in the fuel sector, particularly petrol and diesel? On October 13, 2006, the European Commission...

  • Motorbike fatality

    The article ‘”Riders are buying powerful bikes with little experience”’ (November 14), is a disgrace and lacked any sort of respect to the family members of the individual who just recently passed away after a motorbike accident. What proof does...

  • Uneducated actions

    I would like to express my frustration at the actions carried out by the graduate students who should, above all else, act as exemplary individuals and not destroy the same system that supported them. In relation to this, I would like to suggest...

  • Use of indicators

    Many years ago (I am 78 years old now), it used to be ‘might is right’ for most drivers on our roundabouts. Fortunately, we have learned to give way to traffic that’s already on the roundabout but why is the use of indicators so often...

  • Lack of sensitivity

    I write again to protest on a particular advert by Emcare on Radju Malta. The advert promotes some equipment required by the elderly. What worries me and many others (some have been complaining for quite some time during the morning programme...

  • Useless ‘features’

    Will the Times of Malta please tell us why the so-called Trending Articles shown online? What value do they hold? Are they considered educational or maybe entertaining? Because they are certainly not. All of them are in bad taste and they are akin...

  • Night orange picker

    Night orange picker

    These are pictures of a thief who sneaked into my property on November 12 at 11pm and stole a big basket of oranges and lemons from my trees under cover of darkness. He is a man of middle age or thereabouts, has a gaunt face and short hair, has a...

  • Get 'em out by Friday

    In the post-truth era characterised by the electoral victories of Premier Muscat, that Farage specimen and - Gawd'elp'us'all - Donald Trump, it is possible to say what you like and get away with it, because, hey, it's an opinion, ay? My title...

  • The answer is discipline

    I had vowed never to open my mouth again, never to criticise my government or my nation again. But my spirit, or whatever moves inside of me, shouts out louder and pushes me to speak out. Dear Prime Minister, please listen to us, we the sheep of...

  • The ‘British’ way

    I just had to respond to Peter Apap Bologna’s rant on ‘Commitment to an ideal’ November 12). The ideal to which we should be committed and rejoice in is the will of the populace as expressed through the ballot box. I and my wife voted for...
