Letters

  • Caring for the carers

    Tessa Carr’s letter on this subject certainly rang a bell. The people she did not mention, however, were those who care tirelessly for loved ones at home. Regular “breaks” are essential, especially for older carers (sole carers, as many of them...

  • Send thieves back home

    We often come across reports that Romanian and Bulgarian visitors to Malta are being found guilty of thefts from shops and people. I am of the strong opinion that instead of being given a suspended sentence, they should be sent back to their country.

  • Ensure they are declared innocent

    The leaders of both political parties have declared their personal intentions with regard to the spring hunting referendum but are leaving their party members free to vote as their true feelings dictate and not as directed by the party. Therefore,...

  • Eat it or sell it, it’s still wrong

    Philip Toledo (‘I eat all the birds I hunt’, March 31), to the great amusement of most thinking individuals, went out of his way to justify the hunting he does in spring by claiming to eat anything he manages to kill. What he does not seem to...

  • Birds have tradition too

    Birds have tradition too

    As a bird-loving Englishman resident in Malta for five months, I feel I should have my say on the spring shoot. No doubt, the hunters consider the killing of birds which are in passage as both their tradition and right and of little concern to a...

  • Hunters must use arguments not instil fear

    I read with surprise Mark Mifsud Bonnici’s letter ‘Fishing and hunting’ (March 31). It is out of subject as he is obviously writing about full-time fishermen and not amateur fishermen. We amateurs do not and are not allowed to fish illegally in...

  • ‘No’ is the right vote

    I agree with Rodolfo Ragonesi (‘Given the power to say no’, March 30) not only about voting No but also with his description of Malta as having been moulded by our forefathers and voting the way it did when it was time to take a crucial...

  • A big need of drivable spaces

    It appears that Transport Malta, in its infinite wisdom, is reducing the number of roads. It has not dawned on them that our country is small, the roads are limited in number and, what with the ever-increasing number of vehicles, we are in great...

  • Need of junction

    I am a grandparent of a toddler who attends a playschool at the Bulebel Industrial Estate in Żejtun. I wish to point out to the authorities that it is very dangerous exiting the Industrial Estate (with a car) and crossing Dejma Road to enter...

  • Damaged or destroyed works of art in WWII

    I am a student at the University of Malta reading history of art. As part of my undergraduate course, my dissertation will be focused on the study of the damaged or destroyed works of art in World War II, focusing on the Valletta and Grand Harbour...

  • ‘Who am I to judge?’

    I refer to the letter by Joe Zammit, ‘Archbishop Scicluna’s principles’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, March 22), in reply to my letter the week before. We are talking about two distinct issues. The first is the use of contraceptives within marriage.

  • No longer dangerous

    I refer to my letter ‘Still dangerous’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, March 22). Since then the massive hole on the pavement of Bastion Street, Senglea has been levelled with cement and is no longer dangerous. I’d like to thank the council and...

  • Ta’ Duna church, Rabat

    I recently visited Ta’ Duna church in St Paul’s Street, Rabat, together with a group of friends, most of them foreigners. We were keen to see the unique artefacts such as miniatures of the Good Friday procession statues and churches. Over the past...

  • Toilets on Islet Promenade, Buġibba

    I had a letter published last year while on holiday about the filthy and shambolic state of what are purportedly toilet facilities in Buġibba. Nothing has changed. Last Sunday my wife had occasion to pay a visit to the ‘toilet’ at the Bognor end.

  • Night of the Oscars?

    To be honest, I am really not sure about the details surrounding the Malta International Dance and Competition which took place last Monday evening and early Tuesday morning at the Mediterranean Conference Centre. What I do know, however, is that...

  • Environmental conservation and us

    Victor Axiak wrote an interesting article on why he is voting ‘No’ in the spring hunting referendum, (‘The future must surely come’, The Sunday Times of Malta, March 15). I have been a student under his supervision and have only words of praise...

  • Who to believe?

    An important aspect of the spring hunting referendum is that we are given the facts. On the hunters’ side we are told the European court accepted that Malta can make use of a derogation, that the two types of birds hunted are of no concern and...

  • Tribute to an angel

    Tribute to an angel

    The parish church of Għajnsielem was packed. They all wanted to be as close to the family as much as possible but also to give a very strong hug to Leah, the six-year-old angel. The presence of so many children was very moving and they all gave...

  • Abolitionists and not lovers of the environment

    The Shout campaign is going overboard in its attempt to stop hunting in Malta. The public must be made aware that among the SHout campaigners there are declared abolitionists who many years back had declared that they will not stop their campaign...

  • Spring hunting referendum

    The anti-hunting organisations have certainly intensified their efforts to stop spring hunting. No doubt, this is the first step to stop hunting altogether in Malta. Somebody has already suggested that the police ought to withdraw all guns from...
