  • Cycle lanes are for car drivers

    We keep hearing in the press about how this road or that road will have so many kilometres for car drivers and a few hundred metres of cycle lanes, often relegated to one side. Clearly people on bikes will have to use main roads when accessing the...

  • The bright side of Brexit

    Michael Owen painted a very dismal picture of life in the UK (April 21). Owen is in exalted company: Barack Obama warned of dire consequences should we have the temerity to vote leave, Jamie Dymon of JP Morgan tried the same tactic, and our own...

  • Serious undertones

    Serious undertones

    I would like to draw the attention of the Commissioner for Children to the following text which is an unofficial summary of the Convention on the Rights of the Child. “The preamble recalls the basic principles of the United Nations and specific...

  • Satan and exorcism

    Thanks to Pope Francis, Satan and exorcism are back in vogue. A write-up in the Times of Malta on May 22, 2013, referred to “Francis’s obsession with the devil, a frequent subject of his homilies”. The Pope bestowed on Satan a great honour by...

  • Kudos

    Allow me to publicly express my praise and compliments to the female director, Katia Caruana, currently running the Justice Department for an outstanding and sterling service given to our legal firm. Indeed, she is a shining example of how women...

  • Excellent service

    I would like to publicly thank the Justice Department in Malta, impeccably directed by a female, for the excellent service provided to me from her delightful employees. Their attention to detail, great communication skills, and a ready...

  • Utter disgrace

    I am at a loss as to why car owners continue to empty their ashtrays onto the kerbside. Tourists Street in Buġibba is an utter disgrace with broken uneven pavements, never maintained, making it difficult to walk with tables and chairs all over the...

  • Solar rights

    Solar rights

    The ‘solar rights’ referred to in the Times of Malta report (May 3) are not something artificial or unreal.  If the Planning Authority really respects Maltese citizens in general, and not restrictedly developers and their endless quest for money,...

  • Valid question

    I refer to Eddy Privitera’s letter ‘Bar connections’ (April 26) wherein the following was stated: “The obvious idea behind the story is to instil in the minds of gullible readers the possibility that Chris Cardona is somehow involved in the murder...

  • Foreign workers in Malta

    As everyone can see, Malta is invaded with foreign workers, not only EU citizens but also from outside the EU. According to what is being said, the number of these workers is going to increase in the near future. No wonder, wherever you go, you...

  • Man’s endemic frailness

    John Guillaumier proclaims a triumphant phlegmatic sinless world in contradiction of  Catholic Church’s teachings and stark reality. On top of that,with a stroke of self-glorification, against all Socratic elenchus, he endorsed with arrogant...

  • Meghan Markle link to Malta

    Meghan Markle link to Malta

    Jessica Huie, who set up Color Blind Cards, and describes herself of mixed heritage, or biracial, and is a friend of Meghan Markle, gave an interview to The Daily Telegraph on April 23. She spoke of their trip to Malta which “was Huie’s...

  • All that glitters is not gold

    Eddy Privitera (May 5) seems to be very happy about the PL’s success in recent years. However, had it not been for President Emeritus Eddie Fenech Adami, whose foresight has no parallel, Privitera would still be living in a jungle. I am sure that...

  • Being a staunch Catholic

    In his opinion piece titled ‘Eight cells in the lab’ (May 2), Mark Sant, by stating that “all the vociferous anti-IVF-reform campaigners have only one thing in common. They have staunch extreme Catholic beliefs”, demonstrates his prejudice against...

  • No conflict of interest

    Reference is made to the article titled ‘Konrad Mizzi’s father interviewing Air Malta employees’ featured on the Times of Malta and timesofmalta.com on May 5. The article lacks basic facts which have been given to your correspondent and which were...

  • Ugly stalls

    Ugly stalls

    Having last visited Malta in January and being immensely impressed by the Tritons Square in Valletta, I was disappointed to realise through the Times of Malta that what I thought were temporary public toilets, or misplaced containers, are, in...

  • Contributing to the problem

    I have always enjoyed the often balanced and insightful views of Martin Scicluna as presented in the Times of Malta. To say that I am disappointed with his column of May 2 is a huge understatement. It seems that even a sage like Scicluna in not...

  • Beyond comprehension

    On Sunday, I listened to Joseph Muscat addressing his assembly. Among other twisted facts, he said the economy is doing well due to the government’s investments. I have been living in Malta for the past five years and I am still waiting for this...

  • Stop this blatant abuse

    While agreeing wholeheartedly that one should not park one’s car in front of someone else’s garage, blocking its entrance, it is about time the authorities swoop down on garage owners who use their garages as apartments without ever parking their...

  • Floriana, not Valletta

    Floriana, not Valletta

    Your reporter (April 30, ‘Kiosks at Triton Square’) has mistakenly placed the Tritons Fountain in Valletta. Thus he stepped into the void where angels fear to tread or perhaps where ignorance is bliss. Certainly he meant it not as a challenge to...
