  • On ‘useless power stations’

    Simon Busuttil put up a spirited defence of the Nationalist Party’s position on the long-running power station saga when appearing on a recent edition of TVM’s Dissett. When asked about the ‘experts’ the PN is using to fight its case and about...

  • Not this master plan

    I would like to share some thoughts on the Paceville master plan from the perspective of residents. Our family has lived in the area for decades; the first members of our family started living in the area in 1956 and still reside there to this...

  • The unkept, dirty streets of Buġibba

    We have been coming to Malta since 1990. We have visited many places in Malta and we have grown to love the island like a second home. Each time we come to Malta, however, we find that Buġibba is dirtier and grubbier. The streets are littered with...

  • Malta and the Spanish Civil War

    Malta and the Spanish Civil War

    I refer to the article ‘Malta and the Spanish Civil War’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, November 6). The heightened presence of the Royal Navy in Malta during the Spanish Civil War was the result of the Nyon Conference in Switzerland which set up...

  • Uneasy times for Labour MPs

    These must be very trying times for Labour MPs. At the  2013 general election a large number of Labour MPs were elected. However, some of them must now be feeling threatened by the fact that at the next election the party is bound to lose some of...

  • Outstanding healthcare in Malta

    I would like to say a huge thank you to the Mosta health centre and the A&E Department and Observation Ward at Mater Dei Hospital for their excellent care of my husband when he was taken ill during a recent stay in Malta. The medical care and...

  • Paintings at Senglea’s Porto Salvo church

    Paintings at Senglea’s Porto Salvo church

    With reference to my article ‘Senglea’s Porto Salvo Church: a jewel of artistic heritage’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, October 23) I would like to correct a misattribution I made with regard to the painting of Our Lady of Mount Carmel found on one...

  • San Anton, pupils and dogs

    San Anton, pupils and dogs

    It is normal for me to take my foreign, adult students to study at the beautiful San Anon Gardens. We find it most relaxing, with plenty of fresh unpolluted air, tranquil birds chirping and peacocks and other creatures running about. It is so...

  • Changing the status quo?

    What makes people want to change their status quo, no matter what? First Brexit, now Donald Trump. When voting to leave the EU the British voted to regain their sovereignty, and when voting for Mr Trump the American people voted to “make America...

  • Property market index

    According to the new rent laws enacted in 2010, the ministry responsible for accommodation was, in January 2014, due to issue regulations proposing a property market value index so that lessors will be able to adjust the rentand start getting a...

  • Hospital parking

    People of my generation have been brought up to consider punctuality as both a matter of virtue as well as one of basic courtesy. So If my appointment with a consultant doctor at Mater Dei Hospital is for 10am then one leaves home early enough to...

  • Works in progress

    This newspaper reported the quick action of the local councils to clear beaches of rubbish and seaweed. It seems this must still be work in progress because at Mellieħa Bay clearing took place for some days but everything stoppedat Sunday...

  • Demolition of an icon

    Demolition of an icon

    Unfortunately, this week, Gozo lost one of its iconic buildings. It wasn’t any so-called ‘important’ or ‘scheduled’ house. It was known as Qbajjar cottage and, in my childhood, it was a lonely house at Xwejni Bay, close to Marsalforn. It was a...

  • Let me get off

    Let me get off

    Well, well, there you have it. Donald Trump in the White House. Come to think of it, with Trump, Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-un each having their finger on the nuclear button, it is time to stop the world and ask to get off.      

  • God bless Donald Trump

    It was deeply satisfying to witness Hillary Clinton’s defeat at the hands of Donald Trump, more so after reading the subdued coverage of the Times of Malta of this historic event, with this paper trying to demean the great man’s triumph by...

  • Biggest upset

    The world has just witnessed probably the biggest upset in American politics because although Donald Trump was a heavy underdog he still managed to pull a stunning victory. The media was all out against him, including this week’s Time and The ...

  • Flawed Equality Bill

    I refer to the letter by Reuben Sciberras, on behalf of the Ministry for Social Dialogue, Consumer Affairs and Civil Liberties, on ADF International’s remarks on the proposed Maltese Equality Bill (November 9). ADF International advocates for...

  • Theatre productions

    On behalf of the management committee and members of the MADC (1910), I would like to add our appeal to that of Adrian Buckle of Unifaun Productions against the decision taken by this newspaper to stop publishing a review of theatre productions if...

  • Death is not the end

    Readers may think I am John Guillaumier’s shadow penfriend. In a way, I am, because when I consider that these last few years his letters were treated as if they had just been handed down from the mount on a tablet of stone, I should have the same...

  • State of Malta’s roads

    Now that the EP President Martin Schulz will be visiting Malta on an official visit, will he bother to see where the European funds allocated for the embellishment of Malta’s roads are going? Oops! I forgot that on such occasions, on strict...
