Letters

  • A spiritual haven is needed

    Let me too voice my disapproval of the idea of constructing a shooting range in the vicinity of Mount St Joseph in Mosta. When are we going to prioritise our choices? When are we going to stop looking only at individual interests to the detriment...

  • The right type of university

    Malta does not need to be second rate and a new university should not make money for export but, rather, should import quality students, coming here for academic reasons and not just for sand, sun and occasional study. As its students will be...

  • Fatal accident just waiting to happen

    Fatal accident just waiting to happen

    On Wednesday, I witnessed a woman being almost run over by a speeding car while she was using the zebra crossing. This happened at the Ferries at about 8 am, when a car on the normal lane stopped to let the woman cross and another vehicle came...

  • Mountains out of molehills in Gozo claims

    As soon as the Anthony Debono (Giovanna Debono’s husband) case came to light, the PN media started publishing allegations of similar happenings occurring since March 2013, when the Labour Party came to power. The target of the PN was and still is,...

  • Sound levels breach rules

    The shooting range planned for Mosta is expected to attract “high end sports tourism to Malta... and hundreds of athletes and their coaches and staff will be coming from all over the world...” The scale of such activity must be supported by...

  • Malta is being ruined

    It appears that this Labour government is hell-bent on promoting and/or assisting the ultimate rape of Malta and has sold its soul to the construction industry. The latest brain-twister by Joseph Muscat and his acolytes is the plunder of a large...

  • What on earth happened to my ID card?

    I am writing this letter because I need some advice regarding my application for an ID card. I applied for one on November 11, 2014 and to this day have still not received it. I have sent e-mails to the e-Residence unit and the customer care...

  • Addolorata Cemetery

    I have just come back from a visit to the Addolorata Cemetery and am disgusted. Even though it was Mothers’ Day, the place was dirty, bins were overflowing, wild grass was everywhere, papers were flying all over the place and there was no water...

  • Shooting range

    The setting up of a shooting range near a retreat house is like building a hospital near a quarry. It makes no sense. An entertainment entrepreneur recently complained that there are too many gentlemen’s clubs in Paceville, which is detrimental to...

  • Zebras, rainbows and human rights

    In her article published on May 10 Petra Caruana Dingli lambasted my response to Fr Richard-Nazzereno Farrugia’s attack on Gozo’s rainbow crossing inaugural press conference. According to her, “his article was written in a civil tone, and...

  • Does anybody really care?

    I have again returned home wondering whether anybody in the Church hierarchy cares whether their representatives are delivering an effective homily during Holy Mass on Sundays. What is the purpose of a homily? According to one definition, a homily...

  • Bird shooting generates £2 billion in UK

    On reading the letter ‘Blasting birds from the sky is not a sport’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 10), I cannot but laugh and attribute such writing to a person who has been confined to living in a box since birth. Sean Whyte from the UK states:...

  • Cave houses at Dingli Cliffs

    Cave houses at Dingli Cliffs

    I am writing in the hope that your readers may be able to help me with information regarding the cave houses at Dingli Cliffs. I would like to know whether they are still in use and whether the people in this photo, which I took some years ago,...

  • What about hunting in Britain?

    I refer to the letter ‘Blasting birds from the sky is not a sport’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 10). I have all the respect for anyone with a different opinion with regard to hunting, but insinuating that hunters are insane just because you...

  • Some just can’t help it

    Anne Zammit’s article ‘Some hunters just can’t help it’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 10) shows that some bird protectionists are intolerant. Following a democratic referendum that determined the future of spring hunting she states: “The...

  • Blasting birds

    With reference to Sean Whyte’s letter (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 10), I do not want to go into the merit of what is wrong or right about hunting. However, I am offended when a foreigner criticises my country when there is a lot more to...

  • ‘Something called the American University of Malta’

    In a phone call to De Paul University, broadcast over a local radio station, a top administration official of this university, in making short-shrift of the Labour Party innuendo that this Chicago institution was closely involved in the project...

  • Plant-based diet

    On a local TV channel it was stated that a plant-based diet can prevent – and even reverse – cancer and other diseases while animal-based, processed and refined food increase the risk of many diseases. So, apart from the fact that animals would no...

  • Deficiency in medical care

    In his statement on St Vincent de Paul GPs (May 9), Charles Messina states that “the different and much better conditions compared to 10 resident doctors could only cause ‘bad blood and demotivation’”. While I totally agree with what he had to...

  • CHOGM role on migration

    The sterling and ongoing work by Moas, Doctors Without Borders and others to save migrants from drowning in the Mediterranean should not mask the abject failure of major international institutions to deal with this long-standing humanitarian...
