  • Promise not kept

    The new scholastic year has just begun and the situation regarding St Thomas More College Primary School, Marsascala is getting from bad to worse. Marsascala is one of the fastest-growing localities and this stresses out our primary school...

  • Blinkered opinion

    Roger Mifsud (September 21) is mixing things. He still thinks that the Prime Minister’s candidate for the Court of Auditors, is “Malta’s” choice. It is not Malta that sent Leo Brincat to the slaughterhouse: it was Joseph Muscat. When the...

  • Curbing betting

    I refer to the four-page, unnumbered pullout inserted in your newspaper advertising betting of all immaginable odds. Is not this form of advertising also detrimental to habit-forming  compulsive betting? One is always playing against the...

  • Thank you

    Thank you

    My wife and I wish to join other people from Mosta in thanking wholeheartedly outgoing parish priest Albert Buhagiar for his service during the last four years. He endeared himself to us. Although we will miss him greatly, we understand that he is...

  • Brexiters were not conned

    I refer to Seb Tanti Burlo’s cartoon of September 16 and accompanying text.  Let it be clearly understood that the people of Great Britain were not conned. We were told lie after lie by leaders of Remain, for example that there were no plans for a...

  • The only way is up

    In his article ‘The horse has bolted’ (September 20) John Craske went overboard in his remarks over the St Julian’s Bay area. I agree like everyone else that buildings which are not in line are an eyesore,  but where land is scarce such as in...

  • Scotland and the Knights of St John

    During my schooldays in Malta I learned about the Knights of St John and later in life was taught first aid by the St John’s Ambulance Association. By one of life’s coincidences work took me to Scotland to live half a dozen miles from the castle...

  • Refuse bag solution

    As the ‘grandee’ of Gozo Mike Wagstaff was so quick to point out when he was trying to portray me as a rabid racist recently over my Brexit comments, he really comes across as the epitomy of local government ‘officials’ that he was back in the UK...

  • Go Sports

    Like many other soccer enthusiasts, I am disappointed atthe way we have been stealthily, albeit probably legally, deprived of what we thought would bea full Premier League bonanza of live matches on a Satur-day afternoon. First we get one live...

  • Thanks to Gozo Channel employees

    Thanks to Gozo Channel employees

    I would like to show my appreciation to the Gozo Channel employees who were a great help to me when I told them that I had particular needs. I travelled to Gozo on the Malita on September 15 at about 9am. I came back to Malta on the same day on...

  • Bureaucrats’ fears

    I am now more convinced than ever that the greatest fear gripping the minds of the unelected Brussels bureaucrats is that Britain, after all, could very well make a big success out of its withdrawal from the European Union. That would open the...

  • The horror of abortion

    In the current debate on abortion in Malta, it might pay to reflect on what happens in one of the capitals of abortion, the UK. The words that follow are not mine, but extracted from a national newspaper there, a few years back: “Like many in her...

  • Sliema and Mrieħel towers

    I refer to the interview with the chairman of the ERA, Victor Axiaq (The Sunday Times of Malta, September 18), and the Talking Point by Townsquare Sliema Ltd. director Andrew Ganado (Times of Malta, September 21). I read Mr Axiaq’s interview with...

  • A solitary tree at Castille Place

    A solitary tree at Castille Place

    About a fortnight ago I had an appointment in Valletta and when this was over I decided to visit Castille Square. This has been pedestrianised and there are some new and comfortable large benches in place. But was there a genuine reason to remove...

  • Servants of God

    I have often written about the holiness of the Servants of God Henry and Ineż Casolani, who I got to know through Fr Prof. Maurice Eminyan whose discernment I value. The couple were devoted to Jesus and I appeal to the Cana Movement to sponsor...

  • Honesty pays

    The slogan ‘Let’s all succeed together’ very significantly reflects what the PN’s policy is all about. EU benefits, for instance, are accessible to all, ranging from the present Prime Minister who was MEP despite his vote against Europe, to anyone...

  • Not enough parking spaces for motorcycles

    Not enough parking spaces for motorcycles

    As from last January, car drivers have been able to ride motorcycles with an engine capacity of up to 125cc without having to obtain an additional licence.  The government believes that motorcycles should be encouraged, especially for commuting...

  • Thanking the Mission Fund

    I would like to thank the Mission Fund for their kind and generous donation of €2,000. Without such generosity it would be difficult to run our home for the sick and those with mental health problems in Pakistan. With the money received we intend...

  • Enough is enough

    Parliamentary Secretary for Planning Deborah Schembri is relatively new to politics but she had already made a name for herself. Like her predecessor, who provided water and electricity meters to squatters at Armier, she has also shown to be a...

  • Maltapost’s role

    I wonder what Maltapost’s actual role is? Does it provide Malta’s main postal service or is it the cashing office of various other entities? It is a shame that clients who require a postal service from this company have to wait in long queues as...
