  • Article on MMR vaccine (3)

    I would like to express profound disappointment at the publication of the article “MMR vaccine and autism – the movie ‘they don’t want you to see’’, by Kathryn Borg. The fraudulent Wakefield article which allegedly linked autism with the MMR...

  • Article on MMR vaccine (4)

    People all over the world, especially children, are currently suffering as a result of the burden from the incorrect and falsified publication related to the MMR vaccines in the past. Let us not be responsible for bringing back diseases which were...

  • Wied il-Għomor

    Wied il-Għomor

    I remember, as a child, Wied il-Għomor was much bigger than it is now. Trees grew on both sides of the valley until the two sides were both built up. One side is known as ‘The Village’, although it was then part of Mensija, whereas the other side...

  • Destiny of Marsascala

    Considering myself to be a proud Maltese citizen, I take great pride in the way various historical buildings have been restored and their surroundings upgraded. An example of this is Vittoriosa’s Ditch (Il-Foss tal-Birgu), which I recently visited...

  • The importance of Catholic pilgrimage sites

    Despite growing secularism, Europe features several pilgrimage sites and shrines associated with manifestations of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Lourdes, Fatima, Medjugorje, Paris of the Miraculous Medal, Walsingham in England, and Knock in Ireland...

  • Brexit – every threat is an opportunity

    Brexit – every threat is an opportunity

    I read with interest the letter by Peter Apap Bologna, (‘Brexiteers were greatly misled’, The Sunday Times of Malta, April 16). Clearly, in his opinion, everyone who voted for Brexit is suffering from “post-imperial nostalgia, xenophobia and sheer...

  • Excellent care at Mater Dei

    I would like to thank all the doctors and nurses in Medical Ward 4 at Mater Dei Hospital for the constant and vigilant care they showed to our beloved Juanita Debattista during her short stay at the hospital. May the good Lord reward you for your...

  • Disappointed with Turkish Airlines

    My daughter booked with Turkish Airlines to fly to America this August after being advised of the great service and good prices they offer customers. Unfortunately, she was forced to postpone her dream vacation because she has to re-sit an exam in...

  • How not to plan a town square

    Many people are unhappy with the way Nadur square was embellished a few years ago. I heard the work cost hundreds of thousands of euros. And the result? The trees were removed and the square has become naked. The narrow street leading to the...

  • Marsascala’s priorities

    I do not know who came up with the idiotic idea of constructing a new pool in Marsascala on the quie­ter side of the village’s promenade. This area will be ruined; after all, the existing pool and the waterpolo pool are both in good condition. Who...

  • Exposed

    Those people who object to being exposed should not expose themselves in the first place.

  • Regiments in Malta

    May I invite readers who have an interesting memory of the Devon, Dorset or Hampshire regiments in Malta between 1938 and 1943 to send it to me via cmandl.jary@btinternet.com? With the help of a small team of volunteer researchers from the ...

  • Gozo ferry tickets

    The question of ticket pricing for residents and tourists on Malta’s public transport and Gozo ferry (‘Ticket payment on Gozo ferry’ by Denis Mifsud, April 13) has been raised before. UK residents have free public transport for those over...

  • Bumpy road map

    These days, Alitalia is having talks to be saved. To think that this government wanted Air Malta to be taken over (by Alitalia) via a very bumpy road map!

  • KSU elections a sham

    KSU elections a sham

    I read with interest the leader on voting for the executive committee of the University Students’ Council (KSU) and Pulse’s decision not to contest yet again the forthcomingKSU elections. I consider the problem not to be Pulse but the KSU statute,...

  • Health issues

    I refer to my letter (April 13) regarding the dangerous substance ethoxyquin in fish feed and my questions to the health laboratory whether tests are being made on the fish meal and other fresh fish and shellfish imports. To date no reply has been...

  • Not again

    How often have you talked with another person who never looked you in the eye during the entire duration of the conversation? Or perhaps he did meet your gaze a few times but then his eyes shifted back to his shoes or to some point in the...

  • Unique Easter solemnity

    Those behind the Pontifical Mass on Easter Sunday broadcast live by TVM from St John’s Co-Cathedral, deserve to be congratulated. For once, I enjoyed the almost military precision of all the participants, from the concelebrants right down to the...

  • Egrant Capital

    Allow me to refer to the letter ‘Political investigations’ by Eddy Privitera (March 28) which said: “Many readers must surely remember one of the greatest criminal investigations of all time involving political parties, politicians and business...

  • Tragic moments

    Tragic moments

    I write with sincere hope that octogenarians will recall and publish indelible memories of childhood. Wartime Malta was a treasure trove of experiences, a collection of human sufferings that delineated the tragic drama. Octogenarians should not...
