  • A leap in food quality

    It seems Alexandra Vella (July 30) was misinformed on Casa Leone’s culinary service. The new system of healthy meals was selected following nutritionists’ advice, taking into consideration the particular requirements of the home’s elderly...

  • Dangerous stage

    Dangerous stage

    This bus stop in Mellieħa Bay is situated on a dangerous corner, barely a metre from the inside traffic lane. It can easily be relocated further up the road where there is plenty of space and will be safer. Many pedestrians also cross this busy...

  • Benefits of solidarity

    The world witnessed the foundation of a united Europe. The solidarity of the European Union is a fundamental principle based on sharing both the advantages – prosperity – and the burdens equally and justly among members. This, in turn, ensures...

  • Power of the pen

    I refer to my letter ‘Bus card problems’ (July 13). To my surprise, at 9.30am on the morning of July 13, a gentleman from Autobus de Leon called, telling me he had just seen my letter referred to above, apologised for the inconvenience caused,...

  • Nobody wants to be a refugee

    I refer to Lino Bugeja’s opinion piece ‘The migratory illusion’ (July 28). It is important to be clear that the suggested proposal to conduct a “benign pushback operation” is not only illegal by international and European law but it is neither in...

  • Crowning glory

    Crowning glory

    Recently, we took an English friend of ours to Gozo. An absolutely lovely day looking around and doing the usual attractions and ending up with what we thought would be the icing on the cake: id-Dwejra. But what a shock! One building looks like...

  • Burdensome

    I have learnt that Virtu Ferries have been kind enough to grant a permit for animals travelling with their owners to be allowed on the outside passenger deck shut up in cages. This has been a very magnanimous gesture on the part of Virtu...

  • Ethical issues

    Ignoring the ethical implications of the morning-after pill does not serve the common good of society.

  • Obstacles

    I refer to the letter by Alfred Mangion (July 26). I fully agree with it and would also like to point out the abuse of public pavements by many business outlets that make use of ‘street furniture’ to enlarge their business area. I live in Sliema...

  • Burden of proof

    Edward Mallia is a conformist whose belief in religious belief is implied, not expressed. Read between the lines of his write-up on ‘The twilight of the gods?’ (July 15) and you’ll see that, while pretending to stand on the sidelines of the debate...

  • Exploited top sites

    Exploited top sites

    As a country we are so proud that Dwejra has been acknowledged by Unesco as having ‘outstanding universal value’. Indeed, pictures of the place appear prominently on every single tourist brochure produced locally. And, yet, what we have made of it...

  • Low-income citizens

    Low-income citizens have to fend on their own with nobody to support them in buying their own homes, not even the government. Will the Planning Authority launch a special scheme forthe numerous people who are unable to afford their own home and...

  • Manifest hatred

    Can anyone tell us readers what makes an asylum seeker turn to terrorism, as we’re witnessing in France and Germany? Is it jealousy and hatred towards the west? It’s hard to believe how these asylum seekers have the guts to harm those who reached...

  • Beach gone to the dogs

    The decision to allow dog owners to use a number of public beaches this summer has proved to be annoying, unhygienic and downright illogical, to say the least. While the Malta Tourism Authority and Nature Trust are daily providing us with...

  • Church and State matters (1)

    In the editorial of The Sunday Times of Malta (July 24), when commenting about euthanasia it was stated: “It is important that Church teachings should inform the debate”, and in the same breath it was affirmed “however, they should not determine...

  • Church and State matters (2)

    “It is important that Church teachings should inform the debate. However, they should not determine its outcome.” This is the conclusion of The Sunday Times of Malta’s editorial on July 24. Any guess as to which ‘teachings’ will determine its...

  • Still waiting for new bulb

    At the beginning of May the street lamp in the middle of Għar il-Lembi Street, Sliema, went out. After several calls by myself and my neighbours to the Sliema local council I was informed that they were sending their contractor to fix it. Weeks...

  • Door numbers in Swieqi

    Reference is made to the letter by Lina Warrington (July 24) entitled “Swieqi door numbering”. Ms Warrington and other readers may not know that responsibility for door numbering was allotted to the Electoral Office only last January. Note has...

  • Flight path

    So the ‘towers’ at Mrieħel will, after all, go ahead – it could not be otherwise considering the composition of the Planning ‘Authority’. I am no expert in the field, but I often see airplanes coming in to land at Gudja airport. Will these towers...

  • Mail service to Canada (1)

    I refer to Maria Bianco’s letter entitled ‘Snail mail’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 24). It is always with regret that we learn of such unfortunate delay. Maltapost delivers several million untracked letters every year and takes much pride in...
