  • Confusing debates

    I try to listen to as many political debates as possible so that hopefully on polling day I will make the right decision. However, listening to most of these debates tends to get confusing at times as I think some of the candidates do not realise...

  • Malta in the Middle Ages

    While I greatly admire the research and published work of Prof. Stanley Fiorini, I feel that Anne Marie Galea’s article in The Sunday Times of Malta of May 21 (‘Mist being lifted on medieval Malta’) seems to ignore the pioneering work of the late...

  • Complacency is a huge danger

    I believe complacency is the greatest danger we all face as enemy forces gather and plan to destroy Western civilisation. In the 1930s, we in Britain treated Adolf Hitler as something of an eccentric. A Donald Trump of his day perhaps. David Lloyd...

  • Corruption must be defeated  

    It is the duty, indeed it an obligation, of every Maltese citi­zen to vote in the forthcoming general election. The future of our country is at stake, and anyone who shirks the responsibility of voting would be betraying oneself beside his/her...

  • I choose Malta

    Unfortunately corruption is becoming the norm in this country. Simon Busuttil is doing his utmost to prove that we still have honest people who opt to choose a political life to serve and not for any other ulterior motive. If the electorate gives...

  • Bus Rapid Transport

    The picture of a road with a so-called ‘Bus Rapid Transport’ (BRT) system dedicated lane (The Sunday Times of Malta, May 14), which was included with the letter ‘Bus Rapid Transit is the solution to congestion’, is obviously from a foreign country...

  • Vote Muscat out of power

    In the past few days we have heard that two well-known banks are now considering Malta as a high-risk country for investments. Germany’s second largest  bank, Commerzbank, and the Swedish bank Swedbank AB, with about 9.5 million clients and over...

  • Put Malta first

    Put Malta first

    I have been following what the PN and the PL leaders have been saying since the start of this election campaign. The number of electoral promises that have, so far, been made is, to say the least, impressive, and it would have been very tempting...

  • Anonymity

    I have seen the adverts by an anonymous group of people calling themselves ‘Advocates for the rule of law’ in The Sunday Times of Malta. Are these people playing with words like ‘advocates’ and ‘lawyers’? Just as their advert happens to be on page...

  • Trust issues

    I cannot for the life of me understand how some surveys show that Joseph Muscat’s trust rating is higher than Simon Busuttil’s. Muscat has, over the past four years, broken every promise he made regarding good governance, meritocracy and political...

  • On credibility

    Simon Busuttil’s claim that a Labour supporter shook his hands and told him he would be voting for the Nationalist Party this time round (May 19) is as credible as that he would make institutions impervious to government interference. The PN did...

  • Dirty stables

    I think Eddy Privitera fails to understand that the PN-PD alliance came about out of the necessity to get as many votes as possible to beat the Labour Party at the next election. That is the first and important point. The necessity to get rid of...

  • Reputational damage

    Of course, the German regional finance minister, Norbert Walter Borjans, is wrong when he says there are 70,000 offshore companies registered in Malta. For a start, all those companies are onshore and most of them are local trading companies of...

  • Offensive nameplate

    Offensive nameplate

    I recently showed the picture above to an American friend who had at one time studied at the University of Malta. Her immediate reaction was: freedom from whom and what? We both pondered on the significance of its meaning and the only conclusion...

  • The obvious choice

    Unfortunately, it is crystal clear that the eyes of the world, and, particularly, of Europe, will be on us this coming election. They will want to see if we are going to endorse a government mired in scandals and shady money deals or else totally...

  • Political opinions

    Denis Mifsud’s and Joseph Muscat’s concerns (May 20) about the sale of Maltese passports are justified. In an article entitled ‘Shady island’, The Economist refers to our present political scene and concludes that “the island could be used by...

  • Election proposals

    The Nationalist Party offers to make an immediate one-time grant of €10,000 to young Gozitan couples setting up family in Gozo and to other young families relocating to Gozo from Malta and abroad. Would demographical purposes not be better served...

  • Redundant ideology

    Redundant ideology

    In the aftermath of the terror attacks in Westminster and Manchester (picture), the need to find a solution becomes an urgent matter. I believe we can learn lessons from the past to face the present: for example, Marxist propaganda in the 1950s...

  • Prosecution services

    Kevin Aquilina’s article entitled ‘A prosecutor general’ (May 23) does not do justice to the work done to strengthen the prosecution services since the Bonello Report was published in 2013. The Bonello Report played an important role as a source...

  • Big mistake

    A caption under a small picture of Simon Busuttil (May 11) said he would not accept a defeat at the June 3 election. So what are this man’s plans? To have us sliced, drawn and quartered? If so, he is in for a tough job seeing that more and more...
