Letters

  • Shameful service by Maltapost

    Last September I found out that six letters addressed to me had been left in letterboxes of two other apartments in our block which are rarely or very rarely visited by the owners; two of the letters had been there for over four months. I had been...

  • A game of lesser evils

    It is remarkable how much ill-will, hatred, inconvenience and half-truth has piled up in Malta over the past weeks, months and years. I got into politics from being an environmental activist, certain that it would be an ideal chance to make a...

  • Blessed with a new bishop

    Blessed with a new bishop

    This country has been blessed with a new Auxiliary Bishop. Mgr Joseph Galea Curmi has a smile that reflects the joyful Christian commitment in bringing people to Jesus. As Ambassador for Christ he has the qualities to transmit His presence. From...

  • Life-saving device

    We would like to publicly thank the council and members of the Grand Commandery of the Castello, a jurisdiction of the Military and Hospitaller Order of St Lazarus of Jerusalem, for their recent donation of £7,800 for the purchase of an iBreast...

  • Human trafficking

    The captain of Sea Watch 3, Pia Klemp, blames the Prime Minister and other European leaders for the “mass grave” in the Mediterranean. I am sure the captain is aware of the criminal activity involved in the very lucrative business of human...

  • Sustainable development

    The Labour and Nationalist parties bicker over a lot of things but are in silent agreement with regard to the Planning Authority and the protection of the natural environment. Things have not changed or may be getting worse. Now, even the village...

  • Our bishops

    Our bishops

    I was amazed to hear on TV, challenging language being used in relation to bishops commenting on the current saga. The language left no doubt about it. It is common knowledge that the remit of our highly-respected bishops does not include...

  • Electricity rates

    Michael Briguglio (‘Up in arms’, August 4), presented a comprehensive overview of the rates ARMS Ltd has for different brackets of consumption, whereby the annual cumulative consumption is being billed every two months or so pro rata. This means...

  • Aerial ‘bombing’

    I am fully aware that the festa season is upon us but why do we have to suffer the noise pollution that petards generate? The normal colourful fireworks are pretty to watch but are preceded/followed by thumping powerful bangs. Is this...

  • Mobile phone use

    Mobile phone use

    I fell victim to a driver who blatantly saw me signal that l was about to cross a 10-metre-wide road while he was in a stationary position, yet, due to negligence, he managed to knock me down ending up in hospital with concussion plus...

  • Excusable evils

    The editorial ‘An island of contradictions’ (July 30) reminded me of what G.K. Chesterton had written on October 23, 1909: “Men do not differ so much about what things they call evil; they differ enormously about what evils they will call...

  • Landfill island

    I read with some sadness that the Għargħur local council has decided to object to the waste-to-energy incinerator at Magħtab. With the increase in population producing more and more unrecyclable rubbish, landfill is not a solution, especially on...

  • A spiritual testament

    The first homily delivered by Auxiliary Bishop Joseph Galea-Curmi was special indeed. The following words left an indelible mark in my soul. “I have chosen Vitam alere caritate, cherishing life with love. Human life is precious because it is a...

  • Measles vaccine

    Measles vaccine

    The reports on a measles outbreak in Malta provide a good opportunity to remind readers about the research fraud which catalysed an anti-vaccination movement 20 years ago. This was the result of deception of both public and health carers by a...

  • Questions by ‘flat-earthers’

    With reference to Martin Scicluna’s article ‘Egrant’s flat-earthers’ (August 1), I get the impression he has the full inquiry report. Otherwise, he cannot be so sure and definitive about its conclusions. Unfortunately, I, a simple citizen, have...

  • 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...
