  • Change the monument

    Now that the awful monument in Castille Square, which resembles a turd tied into a knot, has served its purpose, it is time the authorities consider moving the ugly sight to the drainage recycling plant in Marsascala and instead install the statue...

  • Just repeats

    I am writing to complain about Melita. Along with many hundreds of other people, I am paying Melita a lot of money every month so I can watch TV. However, every time I switch on the TV I can guarantee you I will be watching yet another repeat show...

  • Error of judgement

    It is widely accepted – except by Simon Busuttil and the PN – that Konrad Mizzi had committed an error of judgement when deciding to accept his financial advisor’s recommendation to set up a shell company in Panama. Mizzi has admitted as much and,...

  • Modern-day laicism

    This newspaper recently reported Archbishop Charles Scicluna as saying that “Ethics classes are not a replacement for religion” (April 23). The article featured prominently a photo of a handshake between the Archbishop and Education Minister...

  • Road hazards

    Road hazards

    Some of the water grids installed along one side of Eucharistic Congress Road, Mosta, are in dire need of repair. I sent an e-mail to the local council and, within a few minutes, a reply came saying they passed on my complaint to Transport Malta...

  • Traffic control

    It has been reported that there was an increase of some 29 per cent in traffic accidents. So, if I may ask, what are the authorities doing about this? The only warped control is parking but even this is done at random and on an unjustified...

  • Smokers

    People who go to restaurants probably keep twiddling their thumbs till the food comes. Others, like myself, have a smoke while people cower away in case they become passive smokers. Why should us smokers be deprived of doing something we know is...

  • Unsightly antennae

    Unsightly antennae

    We have spent millions on the entrance to our capital city and I think we should be spending a few hundred to remove the ghastly and unneeded antennae atop the government flats.

  • Nationalismis back

    In a globalised era, even countries as big as the US, France and Germany can feel small. And this is why politicians like Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen and Austrian presidential hopeful Norbert Hofer are so in fashion.  In a number of European...

  • A beacon of hope

    In the midst of our tribulations, life has many marvels that give us considerable comfort and contentment. The talents embodied in the personality of Joseph Ganado were utilised to the best of his ability with the impeccable results of his...

  • A green valley again

    The committee members of the NGO Wirt San Ġwann would like to thank and congratulate all those who for the past weeks and months had been signing petitions and organising meetings and protests to urge the Planning Authority to reject the...

  • Use of EU funds

    I refer to the article ‘Mcast loses EU funds, cancels tender’ (May 11). The article gives a very unfair impression of the manner in which Mcast managed to use EU funds during the last programming period. For the record, Mcast disbursed 98.55 per...

  • Watch where you’re going

    Watch where you’re going

    Some months ago, I drew the attention of my local council to a danger spot on the pavement just across from the old PN club in Regional Road, Santa Venera, and was told they had contacted the people responsible. The danger is posed by concrete...

  • Nude gardening day

    I read the article ‘Green fingers in the buff for Naked Gardening Day’ (May 9). Last Saturday was billed as World Naked Gardening Day. I am a modest person, not to mention not having a fabulous physique, and did not participate in the...

  • Cases before the Industrial Tribunal

    The reporter covering the MEA/forum conference (May 4) is to be congratulated for capturing the gist of the long, and sometimes animated, discussion. Purely for clarification, my list of the types of cases that comprise the majority of cases with...

  • Outstanding radio station

    The massive contribution of Campus FM, the Malta University Radio, to the promotion of our national heritage and the appreciation of the arts is definitely not sufficiently acknowledged. Their link with the BBC has given an outstanding boost to...

  • Celebrating in style

    Celebrating in style

    Leave it up to them and whatever they organize it’s always’ fully booked’. For the umpteenth time, Valletta FC supporters have held their traditional funeral celebrating their recent Premier League victory. Ironically enough, the capital recently...

  • First European discovery

    I refer to the article ‘Captain Cook’s ship may be in US harbour’ authored by Scott Malone (May 5). Malone attributes the “first time westerners laid eyes on New Zealand” in 1769 to Cook during his Pacific expedition of 1768-1771; quite a feat in...

  • Economic behaviour

    Without wanting to be a wisenheimer, may I take issue with whoever in the European Commission drafted the latest Malta economic report. Recovery in energy prices… The cuts in prices were not market-driven but a deliberate act by the government to...

  • Jurist and a gentleman of calibre (1)

    Jurist and a gentleman of calibre (1)

    It was expected. Nonetheless, the news of Joseph Ganado’s demise struck me like a bolt from the blue. My mind then raced through the many lovely memories I have of him. To me these memories are testament to the great privilege it is to have been...
