    Reaching the moon - Gordon Caruana Dingli

    1968 was not a good year for the US. It was a year of violence. Senator Robert Kennedy and Martin Luther King were assassinated. People were protesting against the Vietnam War and there were widespread riots. There was concern about the Prague...

  • Hefty markups

    I went to a small coffee shop near the ferry berthing place in Mġarr the other day and ordered tea, asking how much it would cost. The woman there replied it cost 80c. When I saw the smallish cup she was handling, I asked for a large tea. She did...

  • Tunnel restrictions

    For better or for worse, the tunnel to Gozo is becoming a more frequent topic for discussion. If the tunnel becomes a reality, may I suggest that only electric vehicles are allowed to use it. The advantages are increased safety, minimal pollution...

  • It’s the economy

    Kevin Hodkin (‘Red blinkers’, December 22) said the Labour government is not “the envy of all EU member states” as I wrote because, according to the unblinkered but totally blind correspondent, our government is “implicated in misdoings”, which is...

  • No deal, no vote

    No deal, no vote

    Can somebody explain why so much publicity about migrants rescued by the Aquarius and who eventually landed in Malta as a goodwill gesture by the government? The migrants were allocated to a number of countries except Malta. Every time migrants...

    2018: year in review - Anthony Manduca

    It was another eventful year. In the United States, President Donald Trump’s Republican Party lost control of the House of Representatives, Angela Merkel stepped down as leader of her Christian Democratic Union, Italy got a populist coalition...

  • Shining a light on gaming and gambling - Maurice Cauchi

    Malta is being touted as Europe’s igaming capital of Europe, and this is being hailed as the economic nirvana that shines on the horizon. Everybody likes a bet and, as the poet sings, “hope springs eternal in the human breast”. Tomorrow someone...

  • Reflections on this year - Petra Caruana Dingli

    It is refreshing to listen to messages, whether at Christmas or at other times, from leaders whose role it is to be non-partisan. This is especially significant when it so happens that the messages coincide. It is easy to shrug them off but they...

  • Beatitudes of the politician - Fr Joe Borg

    Many surely believe that the Beatitudes and politics do not mix. They will strengthen their position by pointing to the myriad institutionalised corruption scandals that surround us. Then they would give examples from overseas: the populism of...

  • All together now, Viva Malta! - Mark Anthony Falzon

    In the eyes of many, the Maltese State should stop five-timing and decide once and for all on a single date as the national day. As they see it, thus and only thus can the nation truly come of age as a mature, modern, and united one. I would like...

  • Under the Misled-toe - Sandro Spiteri

    Look, it’s Christmastime. Harping on nothing but the negative is bad for the liver, and even warriors stop for tea. Without diminishing for one iota the gravity of the situation we find ourselves in, here are some things I liked this year: The...

  • Muscat’s constitutional legacy - Robert Musumeci

    In my contribution entitled ‘The 2nd Republic Constitution: what’s it for?’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, December 9) I questioned a number of constitutional issues (such as whether judgments of the Constitutional Court finding legal provisions...

    Malta’s media malaise 2018 - Victor Paul Borg

    The three international reports on Malta’s ailing media published in the last three months make grim reading. They come on the heels of other critical representations, including a report by NGOs to the UN’s human rights council. Among the latest...

    Malta’s approach to road safety - Christopher Cutajar

    Every 24 seconds, someone in the world dies on the road, and road traffic injuries are the eighth leading cause of death globally. According to the Global Status Report on Road Safety 2018 published earlier on this month by the World Health...

  • Caring for our caregivers - David Casa

    Over the past few months, I have been leading an important legislative proposal that will be of great benefit to parents, workers and carers across Europe. This is an EU Work-Life Balance directive that is aimed at improving the actual day-to-day...

  • Chemicals firm’s waste area

    Following the reply from Sterling Chemical Malta Ltd last Sunday, (‘Chemicals factory ‘in full compliance’’, The Sunday Times of Malta, December 23), I wish to make some observations about the timeline of the story, about which the public may not...
