  • San Ġwann bus service

    Residents in San Ġwann are very pleased to hear that we will have two more buses going to Valletta, nos 25 and 35, passing along Naxxar Road. All we need now is for the 202 and 203 buses to pass by every half hour instead of every hour. These are...

  • A better way to govern can be achieved

    When it comes to living and governing, Christ said: “Be innocent as doves and wise as serpents.” So why can’t we have honest governments giving a good example to our people and citizens, and to outsiders? Is human nature so weak, and so corrupted,...

  • Authentic Christian democrats

    The current storm of alleged corruption that has overtaken a number of our politicians has also thrown up calls for the foundation of a third party. Whether this is advisable or not, I have no idea. But I fully sympathise with it, and this because...

  • Credit where due

    Hear! Hear! Let me join the chorus in support of our own scholar of Maltese and promoter of Maltese high culture in Australia, Roderick Bovingdon. I stand four square alongside Rev. Fr Leonard Testa, OFM Conv. (April 9) and gladly vouch for this...

  • Visiting the sick

    Looking at my priest friends during the daily concelebration of Mass at Dar Tal-Kleru – there are 50 of us, 30 or so diocesan and another 20 religious priests – I keep reflecting on the intensity of the pastoral work they performed over the...

  • How to speed up the works

    To minimise the delays that the roadworks will cause, let alone the financial cost to individuals and the country, I hope that the following will take place: The work will be double shifted; it will take place over weekends as well as during the...

  • Friends and enemies

    I shall say this only once. Keep your enemies close and your friends ever much closer still.

  • The hidden gem

    The hidden gem

    On December 21, 2015, Fr Fernando Millán Romeral, prior general of the Carmelite Order, sent a letter to all the communities worldwide to remind us to celebrate the 450th anniversary of the birth of St Mary Magdalene de’ Pazzi on April 2. This...

  • Defending the indefensible

    I am impressed with the efforts of some Labour supporters in their attempt to defend the indefensible in relation to Minister Konrad Mizzi’s involvement in the Panamagate scandal. Their efforts include trying to shift the issue into the realm ...

  • Private trust, public deception

    Allow me to rebut the letter titled ‘Appearances’ by Alfred Demanuele (March 3) in the sense that Energy and Health Minister Konrad Mizzi decided to close Hearnville Inc. (Panama) only after he was caught out by blogger Daphne Caruana ...

  • Konrad Mizzi must go

    I did not expect Prime Minister Joseph Muscat to take advice from the leader of the Opposition with regard to Health and Energy Minister Konrad Mizzi and his chief of staff Keith Schembri. However, I think Muscat should listen to what former...

  • Challenge posed by Joseph Muscat

    Like some other prime ministers in Europe and elsewhere across the globe, Prime Minister Joseph Muscat wants to have it both ways: he wants to keep Konrad Mizzi in his Cabinet and Keith Schembri as his chief of staff, but at the same time, he...

  • The Marsalforn bridge

    The Marsalforn bridge

    The attached photo shows part of the main thoroughfare in Marsalforn, where a small bridge connects the two sides of this fishing village. The bridge happens to be almost right in front of the main bus station. Since this is a two-way street, one...

  • Some are more equal

    A friend was telling me that she got a ticket for parking her car in a place where this was prohibited. No amount of pleading that this was unknown to her relieved her from forking out the money. The Minister of Justice, when confronted with his...

  • Terror attacks

    Referring to my column of March 31, Alfred Gauci (April 11) wrongly accuses me of two things. First, he says, I did not condemn the March 22 terrorist attacks in Brussels. The second accusation wavers between saying that I ‘almost’ blamed ‘the...

  • Poor effort

    Last week, drivers were advised that part of Tower Road, Sliema, was going to be closed dueto roadworks. Why is it that the roadworks, were just concentrated solely on the road dips at Fond Għadir? I am never quite sure whether it is the Sliema...

  • The role of the media

    The people’s disapproval of the pathetic manner in which this country is being governed extended as far as the prison. Thanks to the Times of Malta’s pressure a group of female inmates were paid within a week for their services rendered months...

  • Unisex toilets are better

    Unisex toilets are better

    Regardless of the rights and wrongs of transgender legislation in the US, I would like to make this point. So often in airports, people arrive needing to use a toilet. So many times I see men happily popping in and out at a moment’s notice whereas...

  • Political ideology

    In light of recent Panamanian affairs occurring both on a national and international level, I would like to express my opinion on the situation we are facing due to the pledged loyalty the majority of us possess towards a political party,...

  • Pensions scandal

    Pensions scandal

    So we have gone from the frying pan into the fire when it comes to getting a fair deal from the Maltese government. Under the PN, we service pensioners were being systematically robbed ofour pension but to salve their conscience they gave us  €200...
