  • Good company

    Perhaps someone in the know would kill my curiosity. What would the initial cost be to set up a company in Panama? If it is not too expensive, I might be tempted to set up one myself there.

  • Road safety rule

    Jim Wightman and George Debono have, as expected, responded at length to my criticism of the evidence, or rather the lack thereof, supporting their continued attacks on Maltese drivers, the Transport Ministry, the law courts and the police. The...

  • The quality of concrete

    I spent much of my working life in architecture and surveying, saw lots of problems with concrete and I concur with much of what was said in the article ‘Many residential buildings under construction to face problems in 30 years due to untested,...

  • Brussels attacks

    Brussels attacks

    After the Paris attacks, it was the turn of Brussels to be the victim of a horrendous attack perpetrated by IS, leaving 31dead and over 200 injured. Once again, the entire world is speechless and stunned as to how such an event could have happened...

  • Commercially sensitive

    With reference to the article ‘Transport Malta turns down Times of Malta request to publish controversial contract with GWU’ please note the following. The said contract has been signed following rigorous procedures guided by the Department of...

  • Watch your walk

    Watch your walk

    Texting while walking is becoming a hazard and those doing their texting are completely oblivious to anyone around them. The amount of times I see folk walk into each other is maddening, to putit mildly. I’m sick of all these inconsiderate people,...

  • Defamation and vilification

    I refer to the article by Jason Azzopardi, shadow minister for home affairs, ‘To vilify, or not to vilify’ (April 1). He takes me to task for something I wrote on March 23 when I said: “Freedom of speech does not mean a thing if we don’t also...

  • Transport Malta signs

    For these past weeks the ‘state-of -the-art’ signs installed by Transport Malta have been signalling to motorists to avoid Birkirkara Bypass due to works in progress.   The roadworks in question only lasted one day; yet for weeks we are being...

  • Defamation

    Is the citizen no longer entitled to protect his reputation?

  • Fathers of the Maltese book

    The Akkademja tal-Malti appreciates the view of those correspondents who have written in the Times of Malta extolling Pawlu Mizzi’s contribution to the development of the Maltese book. We are very much aware that his Klabb Kotba Maltin...

  • On the buses

    Having just returned from a 10-day visit to Malta I found the Tallinja “explore” card very convenient and good value. However, when the seven-day period expired, I ventured to buy a ticket for myself and my wife on a bus at the Valletta...

  • Presidential pardon

    I again wish to remind the President and the Justice Minister to reconsider their recent decision not to pardon Godfrey Ellul. Ellul is 67 years old, terminally ill, and has already spent the larger part of his sentence behind bars. He just...

  • Politics of insecurity

    Why do politicians keep on blundering in and destroying countries, and then bemoaning the disastrous chaos, violence and barbarity we are witnessing in Europe and elsewhere in the world? Why are we creating these tragedies ourselves? It is very...

  • Gay ‘marriage’

    Gay ‘marriage’

    British Prime Minister David Cameron has been said to have adopted a “poisonous form of radical moral liberalism” in championing the cause of gay ‘marriage’ in the UK. The same can now be said of the Maltese Prime Minister and leader of the...

  • Cycling getting safer

    In his letter ‘Evidence for safer roads’ (March 23) Jean Karl Soler questions some of the sources of the datapresented by the Bicycling Advocacy Group. True it is almost a national shame that statistics for cyclingare largely collected by a...

  • The need for a third party in Parliament

    The talk of a third party in Parliament is discussed sporadically every few years. Many people seem to like the idea, while others seem to be afraid of it. While I understand that in many cases change may indeed be scary, in some cases change is...

  • Breaking the mould

    Congratulations to Marlene Farrugia and her group for attempting to pull this country out of the morass of political intrigues we have had for the past 95 years. The problem is the old political system to which both major parties adhere to, in...

  • Missed the point

    It seems that all the general readership respondents missed the point about my ‘migrant’ connotations within an Australian social ambience. The local authorities are always only too ready to boast about the marvellous multicultural success today’s...

  • The scourge of corruption

    Some countries, due to economic instability and even greed, suffer from the scourge of corruption. One can mention countries such as Panama and Venezuela as examples of countries that have problems with corruption. Corruption has various forms:...

  • Statue of the Risen Christ

    In his informative article entitled ‘Holy Week and Easter in a Maltese maritime city’, (The  Sunday Times of Malta, March 27), Fabian Mangion included two photographs of the statue of the Risen Christ depicting the statue as it was up until 1988...
