Letters

  • Park-and-ride shuttle services

    I thank Anna Busuttil for her feedback in her letter ‘Park-and-ride trip too long’ (March 22) and would like to take this opportunity to expand on our Floriana park-and-ride shuttle services. Beyond the reduction in parking fees to 40c, the...

  • Fort Cambridge going to ruin?

    There has been yet another mysterious fire incident at Fort Cambridge. This, along with what looks like the wilful neglect of the building, by leaving the countless doors and windows of the rooms open to the elements – despite, I hasten to add,...

  • Pills dearer in Malta

    Further to the letter by Eddy Privitera about the higher price we have to pay for medicine in Malta, I wish to mention Bonviva tablets, which here cost €47.65 for a single pill. Recently, while in Brussels, I was informed I could buy three for...

  • Abuse on the buses

    On March 31, while on bus 222, which was full of tourists, a black man boarded at St Paul’s Bay. The passenger presented €10 for payment. The driver flared up and got extremely abusive. He even tried to get the passenger to leave the bus and then...

  • Mission in Albania

    I would like to thank the Mission Fund for the generous remittance of €2,000 so that I can continue to help the families living in four poor villages in the mountains of North Albania where I am stationed at the moment. These families, especially...

  • End of an era

    The inauguration of the presidency of Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca, a few days after celebrating the 35th anniversary of Freedom Day, has given occasion for a reshuffle to Joseph Muscat’s Cabinet of ministers and parliamentary secretaries. This was...

  • President’s grand name

    Apart from her many other attributes, our gracious new President has the most beautiful name to conjure with. It sounds nice and rather grand and also epitomises our strong links with Europe: Marie Louise from France, Coleiro from Portugal and...

  • Signing civil unions Bill

    According to the Times of Malta e-paper of March 27 regarding the Civil Unions Bill, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca (who will soon be our next president) has made it clear that she has no problem signing the new law and added that, since this measure...

  • Abuse of TV talk show

    Dissett is an established and respected TV talk show on Malta’s State television station. In the transmission of March 27, the sole guest was Simon Busuttil, leader of the Nationalist Party and of the Opposition. The overall topic was the floating...

  • Francis, the house builder

    With reference to John Guillaumier’s letter ‘Controversial Pope Francis’, though he can never detect any redeeming features or silent beneficial elements in whatever the Church or the Pope do, I see the situation from a completely different...

  • Hats off to the President

    Hats off to President George Abela for holding steadfast to his ‘moral’ convictions in regard to the Civil Unions Bill. Regrettably perhaps, the same cannot be said of the President-designate, Marie-Louise Coleiro Preca who, although professing to...

  • Honourable decisions taken

    Scene 1. Back in 2011, Prime Minister Lawrence Gonzi, while acknowledging that, according to his conscience, he is against divorce, declares that he will only vote for the Divorce Bill if its passage through Parliament is threatened – in respect...

  • Murderous practice

    On Sunday a friend and I went walking. It was such a joy to be at one with nature as the sound of noisy traffic faded away. Walking towards the cliff tops in Mgarr we stopped to admire pretty spring flowers and breathtaking surroundings along the...

  • Reminder to the PN

    The leader of the Opposition, Simon Busuttil, never fails to denigrate Prime Minister Joseph Muscat. Why, his constant rages keep declaring the Prime Minister to be the villain of the piece. Let me remind readers, in case they heed Busuttil’s...

  • National reconciliation

    2018 should be a memorable year for the Maltese islands. Among other celebrations and activities, that year will markthe 19th centenary from the martyrdom of St Publius, who as part of God’s plan, welcomed St Paul after the shipwreck and accepted...

  • Mistra disco

    With Mepa now a full member of the Malta Tagħna Lkoll club, I am hoping for some good disco dancing at Mistra.

  • Time to smell the coffee on rent laws

    I refer to the article ‘AG asked to review rent crisis’ (March 28) and I would like to make the following comments. I do not think that the term crisis is appropriate when used in connection with an anomalous situation which has been dragging on...

  • Well said

    Martin Scicluna’s writings are limpid, devoid of hysterical statements and cover most of the current topics. I never miss a single contribution of his.

  • Morality in politics

    The report on President George Abela intimating his reluctance to the Prime Minister to sign the Civil Unions Bill, at present going through Parliament, has prompted numerous online comments both in favour and against the President. I find the...

  • Men United

    I don’t know whether this joke is doing the rounds. Here we go. A marriage registrar was due to perform a same sex union. He was worried about the verbal formula to be used. But being a Manchester United supporter, he quickly pronounced them ‘Men...
