  • Justified action

    Tony Adler would appear to be an aficionado of conspiracy theories which are now all the rage (‘George V “conspiracy”’, July 26). The titillating subject of this correspondence is old hat that has certainly provided several authors with fertile...

  • Egrant questions

    As the political scoring from the fallout of the magisterial inquiry into Egrant continues, am I the only reader to object to the tone of Martin Scicluna’s article (‘Justice served’, July 25)? He repeatedly states there was “no evidence” on which...

  • Part-time work

    Reference is made to the online article headed ‘Employment up by 6.5 per cent in February’, published on timesofmalta.com (July 25) and on the Times of Malta (July 26), which states that “Registered part-time employment was also up, albeit by a...

  • Looming danger

    Looming danger

    I take a cue from the recent piece on Valletta’s Barriera being at risk of collapse (July 17). According to the report, the Culture Ministry had not replied when asked whether there were any plans to restore or conserve the building. There are...

  • An island of contradictions

    It took almost two weeks for the Planning Authority to send enforcement officers to Marsascala to check out a report of concrete being poured onto the foreshore but only a few hours to remove anti-government slogans scribbled on cardboard and tied...

  • Justice must take its course - Daniel Micallef

    A week is indeed a long period in politics, let alone 15 months,  during which time the Prime Minister has been accused of all imaginable crimes under the sun. The brutal murder of Daphne Caruana Galizia fuelled the narrative and, basically, every...

  • Nationalism and migration - Michael Briguglio

    Electoral results in the Western world clearly show that nationalism is a key source of identity for many voters. Yet the term nationalism does not have a monolithic meaning: it can be equally inspiring to those who believe in a society based on...

  • Going His way

    I look at arguments proposed by John Gullaumier as negative or despairing from a completely different optimistic angle. He describes Gregory the Great’s papacy as a pessimistic period of the Church history. To me, it was the first house-building...

  • Maltese valour

    An article that appeared in this newspaper recently spoke about getting rid of the George Cross from the Maltese flag. Obviously, those who are raising this subject were not born during the conflict in the last great war and did not suffer the...

  • Unknown land owners

    Referring to ‘Notification to unknown land owners’ (July 25) and similar notices, I would like to point out that one can expect unknown land owners to exist not only in Malta, where printed newspapers are readily available. Tens of thousands of...

    Political stunts

    The latest monthly stunt by Il-Kenniesa, one of the “pseudo-political groupings”, as Martin Scicluna calls them, was held in the dead of night, when they fixed or hung around 900 small placards and posters along the main thoroughfares. They did...

  • Revealing their true colours

    While justice may have been served with the Prime Minister and his wife over Egrant, truth has only been partially told with the release of the conclusions of the magisterial inquiry that found no evidence they owned the Panama company. From what...

  • A matter of fact - Kristina Chetcuti

    Sometimes it happens that a book picks you instead of the other way round. This week, an old, red book sort of tipped forward from its place on the shelf. I was sitting on the sofa enjoying a brief moment in the chaos of a dark summer week, when I...

  • A forward-looking country - Adrian Delia

    The Labour government would have us believe that their tolerance to very dubious behaviour, including at the very top echelon closest to the Prime Minister, is of no effect to our reputation in the world. When they occasionally admit that there...

  • ​Gozo is full

    If you are planning to spend next month in Gozo, please accept this as a friendly, well-intentioned, warning: the island is already full. It has, in fact, been full for most of the year. There are limits (not officially, of course, although there...

  • Spot the difference - Petra Caruana Dingli

    Now that the magisterial inquiry report about the offshore company Egrant has been concluded, one thing seems beyond doubt. Everyone agrees that, had Egrant been shown to belong to the Prime Minister, this would have been completely out of line...

  • Poor service from WSC

    It is reasonable for customers to expect good communication and transparency from a utility provider. Regrettably, the Water Services Corporation and the company handling their billing services, ARMS Ltd, appear to be falling short in this...
