  • Lousy service

    I would like to complain about GO Network’s lousy customer service over the phone. When I phone their customer service, they pass me on to their technical department, which keeps me waiting for some 10 minutes on the phone with music running. On...

  • Magisterial inquiry

    Allow me to refer to the news item titled ‘Magistrate chosen for Schembri, Tonna inquiry’ (May 10). The following was stated: “Magistrate Natasha Galea Sciberras will lead an inquiry into claims that the Prime Minister’s chief of staff, Keith...

  • Voting conscientiously

    You must empty yourself of emotions: when you are in such a state you are not reacting to a hurt coming from the past. You must make a decision logically. Remembering the words of Jesus: “By their fruit you will recognise them. Do people pick...

  • Disgraceful behaviour

    On April 28, my husband had his sixth session of physiotherapy at Saint James Hospital, in Sliema. As he went in, he found an Eastern-like lady with two other foreigners who looked like hospital staff. When the physiotherapist started speaking to...

  • Immediate action

    Reference is made to the article ‘Ramp in Paceville is finally made safer’ (May 16). Although it seems that attention had been drawn to the dangerous state of this particular ramp in Paceville, no action had been taken until an elderly woman...

  • Property ownership

    Property ownership

    Less than a year ago, I invested in a property in the heart of Valletta to be my home. I have since come to discover that property ownership can quickly become a nightmare. My property has all permits in order. It is located in the centre of...

  • About peanuts and lollipops

    It is not usual for me to write criticising opinions of regular columnists in this paper but last Sunday’s contribution by Michela Spiteri so irked me that I felt compelled to write. My own daughter attended the same school in the 1980s, a choice...

  • Dangerous situation in Korean peninsula

    US President Donald Trump should take Russian President Vladimir Putin’s   advice and stop harassing North Korea. Only patience and dialogue can bring about a peaceful solution, not bombs. It takes two to tango, as the saying goes. Korean leader...

  • Leave the Referendum Act alone

    To me as a simple citizen, as, I would imagine, to the vast majority of my fellow citizens of Malta, it is highly objectionable that any organisation (be it a hunters lobby, or whatever), or individual, tries to take away from us, or deny us, our...

  • Vote PN or PD to eliminate corruption

    On March 8, 2003, the Maltese voted in a referendum on whether we should join the European Union. The Labour Party, under the leadership of Alfred Sant, rejected the results, even though 53.6 voted in favour of joining the EU. Eddie Fenech Adami...

  • In the national interest

    In the national interest

    Calling all switchers and floating voters – Malta needs you, Malta needs you as never before. This is no time to dither, Malta is at the veritable crossroads. In 2013 you may have been lured by Joseph Muscat’s sweet talk, but now that you have...

  • Many reasons to vote out the government

    There are various reasons to vote against the government at the next election. In four years it has managed to give Malta a cheap name by selling our nationality and passports for fast money. It has spoilt our islands’ environment, with...

  • Correction

    Albert Buttigieg is a candidate of the Nationalist Party and not the Democratic Party, as stated last week. The error is regretted.

  • Damaged institutions

    It’s absolutely amazing how the majority of the people of these islands keep focusing their attention on Joseph Muscat even though they know that some of his decisions over the past four years, especially those regarding Keith Schembri and Konrad...

  • Driving me nuts

    While driving on February 2, I had the misfortune of coming across a motorist who thinks road signs are only a decoration. We were involved in an accident. Luckily nobody was hurt though my vehicle was extensively damaged and the other a total...

  • Get old buses back

    Get old buses back

    The old buses (above) had been one of the best attractions in Malta with many tourists still asking for them. It seems the present public transport system is still short of buses, especially when considering we are off-season. It would be an...

  • Passport price (1)

    The price of a Maltese passport is, to my reckoning, extremely cheap. Fancy a millionaire or, perhaps, even a billionaire contributing a mere drop in the ocean of €1.15 million in cash, stocks or bonds and real estate under a supposedly obligatory...

  • Passport price (2)

    In less than four years the Nationalist Party has changed their opinion regarding the cash-for-passport scheme or whatever it is called. I will not be surprised if, in a few years’ time, the scheme will be marketed on the monti stalls. I am...

  • Degeneration

    How the wheel has turned. I thought Labour’s supporters were the ħamalli, what with their big breasts and loud discourse. But now we have the Nationalist Party, with Salvu Mallia making waves with his obscenities online. I hope he will be elected.

  • Tragic reality

    Corruption is clearly the name of the game in this farcical election. Yet, the vast majority of the Maltese people are determined to vote for Joseph Muscat and his bunch of crooks. How come? No one needs to go to university to answer the question.
