  • Residents’ plight

    I sympathise with the Pembroke residents, wholeheartedly. But do these residents know the ‘developers’ have been selling flats for quite a time, long before the controversy erupted? Do the residents know that, whatever is said, it would be just...

  • A tasteful revamp

    A tasteful revamp

    I have no wish to get involved in Malta’s politics, always a minefield for a ‘foreigner’. However, could I congratulate Midi on its magnificent work on the refurbishment of Fort Manoel. I visited the place over the weekend during its Open Day. The...

  • An exception

    I agree “that politicians and those closest to them have to be above suspicion”, as stated in the editorial ‘Politicians must be above suspicion’ (August 3). Hypocritical Malta says that Simon Busuttil is an exception to the rule. One should be...

  • Amazing service

    Allow me to thank all those involved in constantly offering an amazing service and support at the Rabat health centre. A special mention goes to all the nurses that helped me recover. They truly care for their patients and it shows. I appreciate...

  • Own goals

    Eddy Privitera seems to be unaware that his frequent scribbles can so easily apply to the party he holds so close to his heart. In his latest obloquy (‘Political stunts’, July 13), he accuses Occupyjustice of being Nationalist Party diehards whose...

  • Whither Britain?

    Whither Britain?

    The political fight about Brexit in deadlocked Britain is becoming so noisy that Prime Minister Theresa May is besieged and, unfortunately, almost paralysed. Her Conservatives are bitterly divided. The sniping and sabotage, the resignations and...

  • Ta’ Pinu trees

    Reference is made to the article entitled ‘Herrera to the rescue over Ta’ Pinu trees’ (August 4). It is to be noted that the trees were planted on private property which is managed by Ta’ Pinu shrine. The Ministry for Gozo  has no management...

  • BOV downgrade

    The Times editorial (August 6) attributes last week’s S&P downgrade of BOV to litigation risk. The bank was actually downgraded on the basis of ‘industry risk’, i.e. on the agency’s perception that the risk of the entire local banking sector has...

  • An appeal

    Allow me to make an appeal to the Prime Minister. Will he kindly give Martin Scicluna some chairmanship (nothing below that)? When that happens, then perhaps Scicluna might not pester Times of Malta readers so frequently.

  • Passionate caravan owners

    The Malta Camping and Caravans Association would like to point out that what has been defined as the “illegal parking” of caravans near beaches is not necessarily ‘illegal’. It is more of a legal grey area, which is subject to interpretation and,...

  • Skeletal anatomy

    Skeletal anatomy

    This newspaper carried a picture (July 26) of the skeletal anatomy of a species said to be over 500,000 years old, yet it was not mentioned what type of mammal the skeleton belonged to. While examining the structure of the species, I could not...

  • Helping the poor in India

    I, Sr Geatana Bonello, together with Sr Seraphina Grima from the Daughters of the Sacred Heart would like to thank all those who donate towards the Mission Fund which helps us Maltese missionaries. This help is greatly appreciated because it goes...

  • Life in Pakistan is very hard

    As I am currently in Malta, I would like to thank all the benefactors who throughout these last years have been supporting my missionary work in Pakistan. There we carry out work among the people in our care, namely children who would otherwise...

  • Internal plumbing systems are clients’ responsibility

    I refer to the letter entitled ‘Poor service from WSC’ by Nick Dobbs, (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 29) claiming poor service by the Water Services Corporation. While understanding the frustration of the customer at the higher bill due to a...

  • ‘Money, crime and protection

    The article written by Mark Anthony Falzon entitled ‘Money, crime and protection’ (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 15), contains a misrepresentation of facts insofar as concerns the mention of Lombard Bank. The inferences made are factually...

  • Comparing apples to oranges

    Comparing apples to oranges

    I refer to the article entitled ‘Maltese fruit and veg top EU pesticide list’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 29). The list in question is published by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) every year which reports on the pesticide test...

  • Let the whole truth be exposed

    Let the whole truth be exposed

    One can imagine what Prime Minister Joseph Muscat and his wife Michelle went through before the conclusions of the Egrant inquiry were published. That is why we Maltese citizens, who want to live a normal life founded on noble principles and...

  • Testing of pesticides in food

    With reference to the article entitled ‘Maltese fruit and veg top EU pesticide list’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, July 29), I would like to point out that different fruit and vegetables and products of animal origin in the Maltese market are...

  • A quibbler’s fest

    The publication of the Egrant inquiry report really sprang a surprise. When 50 pages were mentioned, I wondered whether the report had to be so long. Didn’t Nexia BT owner, Brian Tonna, not declare last year, in the run-up to the election, that...

  • More crossings

    It is a fact that Gozo Channel crossings have increased considerably during the last couple of years. However, I feel that it is no longer appropriate to reduce the number of crossings in the early hours throughout the summer and winter periods. I...
