    Access to gardens

    It is unfortunate that nobody had the idea of opening a smart door while rebuilding this wall in a style that would go with the bastions, which would lead to Sa Maison Gardens (Il-Ġnien tal-Milorda). It is impossible to get to this garden due to...

  • Electorate’s choice

    The time of reckoning has arrived. On June 3, the Maltese people will decide whether they want our country and its people to continue on the road of progress and the creation of wealth or take a leap in the dark and risk losing what has been...

  • Funk hole voting

    The alleged perpetrators of various crimes against the Maltese estate lurk within the establishments of the main political parties. They may consider that their accumulated wealth allows them to reside in safety - as permanent guests within...

  • Genuine solidarity

    I am a regular follower of the Times of Malta and a regular visitor to this beautiful island. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the people of Malta and Gozo for their unanimous support of our Mancunian community in our time of...

  • Confusing debates

    I try to listen to as many political debates as possible so that hopefully on polling day I will make the right decision. However, listening to most of these debates tends to get confusing at times as I think some of the candidates do not realise...

  • Malta in the Middle Ages

    While I greatly admire the research and published work of Prof. Stanley Fiorini, I feel that Anne Marie Galea’s article in The Sunday Times of Malta of May 21 (‘Mist being lifted on medieval Malta’) seems to ignore the pioneering work of the late...

  • Complacency is a huge danger

    I believe complacency is the greatest danger we all face as enemy forces gather and plan to destroy Western civilisation. In the 1930s, we in Britain treated Adolf Hitler as something of an eccentric. A Donald Trump of his day perhaps. David Lloyd...

  • Corruption must be defeated  

    It is the duty, indeed it an obligation, of every Maltese citi­zen to vote in the forthcoming general election. The future of our country is at stake, and anyone who shirks the responsibility of voting would be betraying oneself beside his/her...

  • I choose Malta

    Unfortunately corruption is becoming the norm in this country. Simon Busuttil is doing his utmost to prove that we still have honest people who opt to choose a political life to serve and not for any other ulterior motive. If the electorate gives...

  • Bus Rapid Transport

    The picture of a road with a so-called ‘Bus Rapid Transport’ (BRT) system dedicated lane (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 14), which was included with the letter ‘Bus Rapid Transit is the solution to congestion’, is obviously from a foreign country...

  • Vote Muscat out of power

    In the past few days we have heard that two well-known banks are now considering Malta as a high-risk country for investments. Germany’s second largest  bank, Commerzbank, and the Swedish bank Swedbank AB, with about 9.5 million clients and over...

  • Put Malta first

    Put Malta first

    I have been following what the PN and the PL leaders have been saying since the start of this election campaign. The number of electoral promises that have, so far, been made is, to say the least, impressive, and it would have been very tempting...

  • Anonymity

    I have seen the adverts by an anonymous group of people calling themselves ‘Advocates for the rule of law’ in The Sunday Times of Malta. Are these people playing with words like ‘advocates’ and ‘lawyers’? Just as their advert happens to be on page...

  • Trust issues

    I cannot for the life of me understand how some surveys show that Joseph Muscat’s trust rating is higher than Simon Busuttil’s. Muscat has, over the past four years, broken every promise he made regarding good governance, meritocracy and political...

  • On credibility

    Simon Busuttil’s claim that a Labour supporter shook his hands and told him he would be voting for the Nationalist Party this time round (May 19) is as credible as that he would make institutions impervious to government interference. The PN did...

  • Dirty stables

    I think Eddy Privitera fails to understand that the PN-PD alliance came about out of the necessity to get as many votes as possible to beat the Labour Party at the next election. That is the first and important point. The necessity to get rid of...

  • Reputational damage

    Of course, the German regional finance minister, Norbert Walter Borjans, is wrong when he says there are 70,000 offshore companies registered in Malta. For a start, all those companies are onshore and most of them are local trading companies of...

  • Offensive nameplate

    Offensive nameplate

    I recently showed the picture above to an American friend who had at one time studied at the University of Malta. Her immediate reaction was: freedom from whom and what? We both pondered on the significance of its meaning and the only conclusion...

  • The obvious choice

    Unfortunately, it is crystal clear that the eyes of the world, and, particularly, of Europe, will be on us this coming election. They will want to see if we are going to endorse a government mired in scandals and shady money deals or else totally...

  • Political opinions

    Denis Mifsud’s and Joseph Muscat’s concerns (May 20) about the sale of Maltese passports are justified. In an article entitled ‘Shady island’, The Economist refers to our present political scene and concludes that “the island could be used by...
