  • Dangerous pillars

    Dangerous pillars

    It is a shame that nobody in any authority is conscious of the imminent danger that some of the pillars surrounding the Birkirkara primary school are presenting. Some of them, especially those along Anġlu Mallia Street, are in such a deteriorated...

  • Two weights two measures

    It is obvious that for the Muscat government what constitutes a whistle-blower depends on who the person is testifying against. It all depends on whether the whistle-blower is spilling beans on the Opposition or the government. Lately we had three...

  • Safeguarding the rule of law

    The die is cast. We are in election mode. On June 3 we are being asked to decide the way forward for Malta. As happens in every election campaign one party tries to outsmart the other. We are promised heaven on earth for some belief that the end...

  • Effects of Egrant scandal

    Has Joseph Muscat’s fat chance of winning the next general election been blown away by the Egrant scandal? It’s a pity, as the majority of people were satisfied with the progress he created during his first term in office. Although his party was...

  • Defining junk food

    Defining junk food

    Matthew Borg (May 3) makes a good point about the dual and equal dangers of tobacco smoking and excessive food intake. However, his suggestion of health warnings on “junk” food packaging would immediately run into difficulties. “Junk” food is...

  • Who shall you vote for?

    Labour promised a lot of things during the last election. Most of these promises were either not kept or the exact opposite of what was promised happened. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.

  • Brexit is bad for Britain

    Brexit is bad for Britain

    I refer to the letter entitled ‘Brexit – every threat is an opportunity’, (April 23). While the European Union is imperfect, reforming the bloc can be done by people of intelligence and sensitivity who respect the differences in our cultures, but...

  • Brexit and the situation in Malta

    I supported Britain remaining in the European Union and I understand very well the frustrations of those like Jean-Claude Juncker who keep saying the UK should not expect a free lunch. That argument feeds into the hands of the Brexiteers who...

  • Important that England leaves the EU

    I refer to the letter by Ian Collins, ‘Brexit – every opportunity is a threat’, (The Sunday Times of Malta, April 23, 2017). Finally a positive letter about Brexit. It must be an age thing as Ian Collins, like myself, voted all those years ago on...

  • Choice facing Malta at a crossroads

    The people of Malta and Gozo have a golden opportunity at the forth­coming general election to kick out the government by voting for the National Movement Against Corruption led by Simon Busuttil and the Nationalist Party. No matter how many...

  • The egocentric Prime Minister

    Joseph Muscat has given us ample proof that he thinks only about himself and does not care about his country or his party. Dr Muscat was elected to government with a massive majority; he inherited a sound economy and efficient institutions.

  • PBS arrogantly halts Maltese programme

    From 2009 to April of this year I was a guest on the popular radio programme Familja Waħda with Lilian Maistre (Radio Malta). I had a fortnightly slot all year round and I discussed different cultural aspects of the Maltese language. I even...

  • Failed institution

    We are hearing a lot about failed institutions. And it is important that the common citizen worries about such a situation. Has not the Malta Environment and Planning Authority and now its successor, the Planning Authority, failed miserably as an...

  • Elusive cheque

    On February 24, I notified GO at their Birkirkara outlet that I wanted to end my mobile contract with a direct debit account. and it was done. During the months of March and April I was advised that I had a credit of €2.12. On April 6, I was...

  • A thank you

    I would like to say thanks to the staff on the Gozo Hos-pital transport. I used the service for the first time on April, 25 and would like to thank the driver and the nurse for their professional approach to the service. The care shown was truly...

  • Newly repetitive

    Can GO explain to its loyal clients why we keep on hearing, day in day out “…New to BBC Entertainment” introducing a series we had seen possibly  once, even twice before. Case in point, Scott & Bailey two days ago. I think I know why but would...

  • Noble gesture

    It was a real pity that Benjamin Carlotti was not allowed to play the singles final before he was due to leave Malta. A mutually convenient date should have been agreed by the tournament organisers, sponsors and players to enable the public view a...

  • Room with a view

    Room with a view

    Having just finished reading the book written by Tonio Bonello Il-ħajja u l-istorja ta’ Ġorġ Agius, I retraced my letter (‘Remembering Ġorġ, old times’, February 27, 2016). In the late 1970s, a spinal unit was established at Sir Paul Boffa...

  • Can she be trusted?

    A very important indication on what kind of political stability can the PN-PD coalition offer to Maltese and Gozitan people in the very unlikely event of the coalition winning the election on June 3 was given on April 28. A One News journalist...

  • Nature of dialogue

    Sincere and respectful dialogue is essential if we want to live in peace and harmony with each other. In his address at Al-Azhar International Conference on Peace in Cairo, held on April 28, Pope Francis gave us some serious food for thought of...
