  • Survival of European values - Arthur Muscat

  • Standards you walk past - Michael Briguglio

    Change does not happen unless people demand it. If we ever needed a reminder that we cannot afford to walk past standards that we should not accept, recent events in Malta have given us a multitude of such reminders – the murder of an immigrant,...

  • The ideal MEP candidate - Robert Micallef

    Sadly, the popular impression is that when MEPs are elected to the European Parliament they are on to a five-year fun ride. Truth offers a vastly different picture as the whole institutional EU scenario manifestly unfolds itself before the very...

  • No country for love - Mario de Marco

    No country for love - Mario de Marco

    What have we done to this sweet land, the mother that gave us our name? What have we done to our country, to our society? What happened to us? How did we become a nation that kills journalists? How did we become a country where people are killed...

  • Voice for voice - Charles Pace

    Voice for voice - Charles Pace

    One cannot explain how thankful we are that women are being genuinely given voice in matters to do with abortion. This is very fair, and long overdue. It is right that now we can hear not only the story of teenage mothers who had ample support...

  • In the wrong place - Eddie Aquilina

    Notwithstanding the fact that I have never been a supporter of the Labour Party, like most people in Malta I have family connections that were in the past sympathisers. I could also say that if I were to dig deep enough, I would surely find some...

  • Our bread and butter issues - Joseph Zahra

    On Saturday we will be votingfor our representatives in the European Parliament and for our representatives in the local councils. But we will also vote on bread and butter issues. While Joseph Muscat and his ministers boast of surpluses, true or...

    How Malta could be - Frank Salt

    I am not pointing my finger at any one person or body. I am not blaming anybody. I am just expressing my thoughts on how Malta could be and should appear in the eyes of those whose opinion should matter to us. Malta at the moment is going through...

  • Sliema, I love you but I don’t like you anymore - Michela Spiteri

    Sliema, I love you but I don’t like you anymore - Michela Spiteri

    I caught the Sliema ferry into Valletta the other day. A cheerful woman was busy handing out a questionnaire asking passengers to give the Malta Tourism Authority their candid impressions of Sliema.  She was about to pass me by, having no doubt...

  • What will you be voting for? - Simone Vella Lenicker

    Most people have already made their mind up about who they will vote for in the European Parliament elections. Many will be guided by party allegiance and others will consider issues which are at heart to them. Voting for an MEP is very different...

  • Politics of abortion - Sandro Spiteri

    So, Adrian Delia can cure cancer. Pity he wasn’t around 15 years ago, when I had to make do with the sterling services of Malta’s national health system. U ħallina Drin. But hold on a sec. If he can promise to make me thin (without diets please)...

  • Just getting started - David Casa

    A looming vision - John B. Pace

    Imagine a million tons of rock laden on trucks weaving their way through the dense traffic for several years… that is what the tunnel will bring. Parliament recently decided summarily and almost unanimously to approve the construction of an...

  • Only in Malta - Noemi Zarb

    There was a time when I would have a good chuckle over our foibles depicted on the ‘Only in Malta’ video clips. Not anymore. Though still funny, I am no longer in the mood. And I suspect I am not the only one since the content of this website is...

  • Education is dead, long live Education AI! - Alexiei Dingli

    Education is dead,  long live Education AI! - Alexiei Dingli

    As part of my job, I get to visit quite a number of schools, advocating the exciting world of science and evangelising about the fantastic world of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Over the past decades, I have taught thousands of students and I’m...

  • A horrible, horrible walk - Kenneth Charles Curmi

    Recently I decided to go for a walk to discover the island’s hidden beauties with my seven-year-old nephew. Before heading out into the ‘wilderness’, I surfed my way to the website of the Malta Tourism Authority for some advice and...
