Letters

  • Local price of medicine

    Several individuals have written to complain, these last few years, about the significantly higher prices of many medicines here in Malta compared to those in some other larger EU countries. Why do our MEPs appear to have done nothing to get this...

  • This is not a spade

    To enter a country legally, one must be in possession of the necessary documents. To enter any other way is illegal, whatever Ranier Fsadni or those of like persuasion say (April 10). Once in Malta, the minority who are found to be genuine asylum...

  • The changing face of politics

    It has been pointed out, and is now accepted, that the parliamentary PN is split down the middle, with the liberals led by Mario de Marco, and the traditionalists led by Beppe Fenech Adami. Effectively, Simon Busuttil has manoeuvred himself out of...

  • Europe is responsible over Ukraine

    Louis Cilia's plea for the EU to “secure its eastern borders” (April 19) is interesting but surely misguided. By pushing the EU borders ever further eastwards, the EU has consistently weakened them rather than strengthened them. Why? History...

  • ‘Love wins over’

    Love my foot. Love is manifested in several ways. There is carnal love, pure spiritual love, platonic love, brotherly love and many others. None of these were demonstrated towards the person who piloted a private member’s bill to include in the...

  • Changing our identity

    I always held that our Christian values were part and parcel of our identity as Maltese. This year we are commemorating various landmarks in our history, all depicting different stages in our progress as a nation. But, I ask, why is it that our...

  • Just what Mġarr does not need

    The latest loony idea set to ruin Gozo – the positioning of a 120-square-metre floating “entertainment platform” for Mġarr harbour – simply beggars belief. The majority of visitors, including those who live just across the water, choose Gozo...

  • It’s Floriana

    In reference to the letter titled ‘Is it Floriana or Furjana”, by Joe Busuttil (April 10), I would like to point out that Floriana is named after architect, literary figure and military engineer Pietro Floriani (1585 – 1638) who hailed from...

  • Nude bathing

    So Parliament has approved civil unions between same-sex couples. This is considered a very modern issue. Now I hope that the government and Parliament will remove the prohibition of topless sunbathing and nude beaches. Going nude is far more...

  • Medicine cost

    I thoroughly agree with Eddy Privitera about the ridiculous price of Lyrica (pregabalin) in Malta (April 12). This drug is now standard medication in most cases of neuropathic (nerve damage) pain. Patients with chronic neuropathic pain, which is...

  • Great school

    I am a parent of a boy who is ending his secondary school years at St Albert the Great College in Valletta. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the teachers, administration and the rector for giving my son such a valuable...

  • No to flowers at Parliament

    I do not doubt the special ability of Renzo Piano as an architect, but I disagree with two particular proposals. Piano has visited Malta so many times that he should now know the acute problem of car parking, especially in Valletta. So why is he...

  • Is your PV performing?

    I, like many others, have entered into contracts with the Malta Resources Authority (MRA) and an approved photovoltaic (PV) supplier, for the provision and installation of a domestic PV system at my home. Part of the cost was financed by the MRA...

  • Parliamentary dictatorship

    Margaret Bianchi’s criticism of Martin Scicluna’s columnist style (April 5), and specifically the content of his feature on President George Abela’s refusal to sign the Civil Unions Bill, is unjustified on a number of counts. To denigrate...

  • Tribute to Victor Griffiths

    May I join the chorus of praise of Prof. Victor Griffiths, a great teacher and mentor. However, mine is a different story of respect and indebtedness. Some time back I discovered he was Ombudsman to the University of Malta. I presented a problem...

  • Supremacy of conscience and moral law

    Allow me to express my views regarding Martin Scicluna’s comments in his letter entitled ‘Legally obliged to sign the Bill’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 13). In his response to Fr Joe Borg’s article (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 6),...

  • Thank you for helping Arka Foundation

    For the past 13 years, the Arka Foundation has administered Dar Arka, a residential home in Għajnsielem for people with disabilities. This centre, apart from offering residential services on a permanent and respite basis, also offers a wide range...

  • More education for drivers

    One of Transport Malta’s duties is to educate drivers. Drivers committing persistent offences should attend educational courses. Tangible rewards, deterrents or punishments are psychologically effective. The police can do their part as well. I...

  • With more than a touch of hypocrisy

    Lino Spiteri affirms in his article ‘Political climate warming up’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 6) “that is what the Nationalists were showing [constant negativity]”. How can anyone make such wild claims about an Opposition that voted in...

  • Save Wied Garnaw

    For the last 10 years, the Save Wied Garnaw Action Group has been campaigning so that Wied Garnaw is not destroyed by illegal commercial and urban development. This valley is one of Malta’s last remaining green lungs and is located on Malta’s...
