  • Five reasons why you should be attending the Civil Society Network protest

    On Saturday May 7 at 10am, in front of the new Parliament, the Civil Society Network will be organising a non-partisan protest calling for the resignations of Konrad Mizzi and Keith Schembri. It will be a peaceful protest with no speeches. All...

  • Nothing but a whitewash

    Nothing but a whitewash

    There is nothing redeeming about the reshuffle. Nothing which will appease anyone who is sound of mind and of good conscience. PL supporters will say that the Prime Minister listened to criticism and acted upon it but the truth is that nothing has...

  • No country for honourable men

    With each passing day the Labour Party in government is slowly but surely letting their mask slip on several of those key points they vehemently promised and said they would fight for before the election. Transparency and good governance are but...

  • It’s called self-respect - get some

    When the country’s highest institution is ridiculed by the same members who preside over it you know it’s time for all of us to have an inward look at ourselves and start questioning what we really stand for. Last night, the Opposition walked out...

  • À la recherche du Mizzi perdu

    Yesterday The Times ran with a story about Konrad Mizzi going ‘missing’. So far we still don’t know what happened to the minister but it is curious this happened on the evening Dr Mizzi was supposed to give answers to a few heated questions. Last...

  • Contaminated by the truth

    In a ridiculous attempt to calm down the electorate, which has shown itself to be rightly dismayed and angry at the plan to give a large tract of agricultural land enjoying beautiful sea views to a foreign (Jordanian) company, the government today...

    What I care about is that it’s a human life. It’s a human life when it’s a two-year-old boy, and it’s still a human life when it’s a 25-year-old man. To me, there is no real difference. People are dying right on our doorstep, and not enough is...

  • The birds have been stuffed

    Growing up I only thought there were two kinds of wild birds; sparrows and pigeons. I also remember this one little song we used to have at school called L-Għanja tal-Pitirross (the robin’s song) by Trevor Zahra, and yet, back then, I had no idea...

  • Hand on heart…

    Watching TimesTalk last night I inevitably found myself thinking about what Susan Mendus kept referring to at the Mabel Strickland Memorial lecture on Politics and Morality last week. Ms Mendus asked one central question, “How, in a democracy, can...

  • To Marsa, with love…

    To Marsa, with love…

    Marsa Power Station has been the unsung heroine of the Maltese islands. She has been serving our country for more than 50 years and on Sunday, February 15, 2015, at around 11am she took her last breath. It was a sad affair. The power station that...
