Letters

  • 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...

  • Perugia paintings

    I refer to the letter by Francis Falzon titled ‘Malta link inn Perugia’ (February 3). The two paintings in the Benedictine church of St Peter, in Perugia representing the shipwreck of St Paul in Malta are detached frescoes. They are the work of...

  • Sour grapes

    It is quite pointless, really, to argue with Michael Owen. He misses the point and is simply blinded by frustration and failure of the ‘remoaners’ to undermine the democratic will. Put simply: sour grapes. The Supreme Court in the UK ruled that...

  • Insensitive attitude

    Can someone from ARMS Ltd please explain why, after nearly a year, my account still does not bear my name. My husband died nearly one year ago in February. I wrote to ARMS officially on May 30, 2016 forwarding a death certificate and a cheque for...

  • Good tree management

    Good tree management

    Now that the walls and bastions of the Floriana land front are to be rehabilitated, quite a few trees and shrubs must be removed. The roots of those right next to or on the walls penetrate both the structures and the underlying rock, causing...

  • Paul’s teachings

    Oscar Wilde quipped that the chief argument against Christianity was the style of St Paul. He should have also added Paul’s teachings. Jesus thought of Himself purely as a Jew, sharing the ideas of the prophets, continuing their work, preaching...

  • Human life

    I thank Albert Cilia Vincenti for graciously pointing out my entitlement “to ignore the fact that the hormonal tablets in question are classified by the WHO, the EMA and the BNF as emergency contraceptive medicine” (February 4). I would, however,...

  • Beyond populism

    Beyond populism

    Holocaust survivors told their horrifying story at an event organised by the President’s Foundation for the Well-being of Society (PFWS). They gave a chilling testimony of how neighbours and friends suddenly turned against them during the Third...

  • Practically a lost cause

    Practically a lost cause

    The picture was taken just days ago. The place is the Buġibba promenade in front of the boċċi club. Thousands of locals and tourists walk the promenade every day. In my time in London, despite the fact that I found the constant construction...

  • Attempt on Strickland’s life (1)

    May I pick just one ‘fact’ that is not a fact in Lino DeBono’s article ‘Reviewing Maltese history’ (February 4), in which he complains about the dearth of ‘real facts’ in the island’s written history. Giving a brief outline since the early 1930s,...

  • Attempt on Strickland’s life (2)

    I read the article by Lino Debono (February 4) who has a stack of impressions and anecdotes bearing on aspects of the last few decades, including several with a Mintoffian slant. His familiarity with Maltese historiography seems to be rather ...

  • Attempt on Strickland’s life (3)

    Lino Debono (‘Reviewing Maltese history’, February 4), says that ever since the history book used in schools during his and my generation’s time nobody else “has written another book stating the real facts, except for Edgar Mizzi and his...

  • A world in chaos

    An aspect that strikes out in Christ’s ministry is His sense of urgency. He delivered His message in language that was broadly understood by both those who sympathised with Him and those who did not. They had to change their ways and they had to...

  • Anti-corruption commission

    I refer to the item (February 2) concerning the report by the Permanent Commission Against Corruption regarding the case of Jimmy Magro and, in particular, to the concluding remarks by Justice Minister Owen Bonnici. Referring to the previous...

  • Many scandals

    Opposition members jeered when Justice Minister Owen Bonnici declared in Parliament that “those who do wrong, would find no shelter” from the government. This was being said in view of the alleged findings of the Commission Against Corruption on...

  • Supply and demand

    Supply and demand

    In response to the article entitled ‘PM warns of rental market regulation if market “does not work”’ (January 25), I would like to point out that the real estate industry operates as a free market, where prices are determined by the forces of...

  • The same language

    I refer to a recent letter I wrote regarding the need to encompass Maltese history as the bulwark against extremism. With history comes language. The Maltese language is a precious jewel, shared across social divides. I worry that the English...

  • Inquiry hearing

    Since, according to the report titled ‘Scicluna snubs Panama Papers inquiry invitation’ (January 27), Finance Minister Edward Scicluna snubbed an invitation to appear before a Panama Papers inquiry committee meeting (held in Brussels on January 26).

  • Hospital menu

    Hospital menu

    I have been at Mater Dei Hospital for some days now. I have no qualms about the staff, a lovely and professional bunch. But I am not quite happy with g/free meals. In the first evening one gets chicken/cut-up boiled potatoes/diced carrots...
