  • Great service at Mater Dei

    Heartfelt thanks goes to all at Mater Dei Hospital – in our case M3. The dedication and special extra care which was recently showered on my husband George was wonderful. I wish I could give them the world, however the best I can do is to say to...

  • Public transport efficiency

    We all know how important an efficient public transport system is for tourism. I would like to suggest a change in bus route 101 and/or 102 that goes from Mellieħa to Golden Bay and then to Ġnejna. It is ridiculous that the bus first passes from...

  • Gozo bus service

    Gozo has always had an efficient bus service and I don’t want it to degenerate due to a lack of common sense. Last Sunday I was on bus 301 going from the Mġarr ferry to Victoria, along with many other passengers. The bus arrived at the Victoria...

  • Excellent initiative

    Excellent initiative

    I refer to the article ‘We’ve bought a ship to save the migrants’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 13) which highlighted the commendable effort by Christopher and Regina Catrambone to purchase a vessel with the aim of picking up ‘boat people’. At...

  • Bisazza Street

    Every now and then someone, with an obvious personal agenda, writes for Bisazza Street, Sliema, to be de-pedestrianised. No valid reason is given except to further the interests of Qui-si-Sana residents. It appears that these people think they...

  • Loss of trust

    A specialist on German foreign policy at the European Council on Foreign Relations has described the US as a “weak superpower” whose spying methods and surveillance on other countries is solely driven by a feeling of insecurity. The expulsion last...

  • Granuled Granaries

    The Granaries in Floriana are considered to be a convenient mass gathering venue by the majority of the Maltese population. Very few people know what the granaries are or when they were built. Most people, in fact, don’t care. They only care about...

  • ‘Perjury’ case

    I refer to the report ‘Tycoon accused of perjury in civil case’ (July 9). I would like to give a wider picture to the case to eliminate certain negative impressions which could have arisen from this report. A civil court case is currently pending...

  • Vatican neutrality

    After weeks of football matches, on the Sunday night of July 13, the Germans won against the Argentinians making them the world champions for 2014. When contacted on the morrow at Vatican City, the prefect of the Pontifical Household, Archbishop...

  • Targeting civilians unacceptable

    Targeting civilians unacceptable

    Further to the article ‘Gaza civilians flee following bitter warning’ (July 14), I would count myself among those who accept that Israel has a right to defend itself from incoming Hamas rockets. Nevertheless, I am shocked and appalled at Israel’s...

  • Nepotistic Labour

    Times of Malta has done a sterling job of exposing the nepotism at the heart of the Labour administration. In revealing that Sai Mizzi – the Energy Minister’s wife – is receiving over €13,000 every month in a quasi-ambassadorial pay package, it...

  • TVM viewership and reporting

    Stanley Clews (July 12) appears to be misinformed about TVM news’ audiences. The latest independent surveys confirm that TVM news has increased not decreased in viewership. Mr Clews is also incorrect to imply that TVM concealed Police Commissioner...

  • Jumping the ferry queue

    As a regular user of the Gozo ferry, I notice that quite frequently when the last car of an earlier lane boards, a late arrival whizzes up the empty lane to board, before the first car in the next lane has a chance to do so. Apart from the obvious...

  • No respect

    It is about time Melita TV management informed its employees to respect people’s privacy. Some time ago I switched from Melita to Go but it appears they still have my telephone numbers and call trying to give some new details of changes in their...

  • Fiasco at the Qormi roundabout

    Will someone at Transport Malta please explain whose bright idea it was to close off the road leading from Mdina Road, Qormi, to Marsa. The traffic being caused all the way up from Żebbuġ to Qormi and from Luqa to Qormi is appalling to say the least.

  • Armed forces deserve medal

    Armed forces deserve medal

    Many letters have been published about the bitter, sad fate of the asylum seekers and forcibly displaced persons who arrive in Malta. They are traumatised, exhausted and full of fear and hope. Remarkably little has been written about the people...

  • In search of a colleague

    I wish to trace a Mr A. Cassar who worked for me in night clubs in Manchester and Chesterfield, UK, in the late 1960s and early 1970s. I visited his home in Fgura many years ago and in May this year, while on a holiday, I went there to see if I...

  • Yellow lines

    More than three weeks have passed since my letter of June 24 about the double yellow lines stretching from Sliema Hotel up to block 66 at The Strand. But only on Sunday did a traffic policeman stop to do his duty. It is a pity that many officers...

  • How much?

    Now that corruption at Enemalta has been eradicated completely, commissions are no longer being paid, and Libya is supplying us with oil at preferential prices, can anyone tell how much consumers are saving on their bills? No percentages, please.

  • Two cellos

    I was among the lucky crowd treated to 2Cellos at Teatru Rjal as part of the Malta Arts Festival 2014. Well done to the organisers for a truly brilliant concert. Thanks for bringing this talented duo and their unique musical style to Malta.
