PN MP Alex Borg addresses high cost of living concerns

PN MP Alex Borg addresses high cost of living concerns
May 24 2023 Share

Nationalist MP Alex Borg took to Facebook to discuss the rising cost of living by relaying some experiences shared with him through messages by the public. 

‘I receive messages on a daily basis over how high the cost of living is getting’ wrote Borg. ‘These types of messages did not stop from before the election and before I became an MP.

He recounted the messages of a single mother trying to restart her life, an MCAST student contemplating starting work as a courier, a clerk from Gozo whose wife is expecting and works with the government who with €1100 and a daily fast ferry still worries about whether he’ll be able to make ends meet and others. 

What good is having economic growth if it means less money in people’s pockets’ asked Borg. ‘That at the end of the month you’re left wondering “how is this possible? What am I doing wrong?”’ 

‘You’re not doing anything wrong’ he said. ‘Why are we feeling like we’re chasing our tails?’ 

‘Prices have exploded and the government has done very little to tackle the problem. It’s useless for the government to say that the rise in other countries was higher.’ 

‘In other countries, the clerk does not get paid €1100 per month and the courier does not work in precariat. And not everyone in Malta is a CEO or a person of trust.’ 

‘I therefore work hard for the country because with not stolen money one could do massive differences in prices. In the coming weeks, me and my team will be showing how big this problem is. How big the difference is. And we will show what we can do as a government.’

Here is what could eliminate the Love Island Malta contestants

Here is what could eliminate the Love Island Malta contestants
May 24 2023 Share

There are a lot of rules and regulations that the Love Island Malta contestants need to follow if they don’t want to risk getting booted out of the villa. 

Of course, the most commonly known rule is the lack of phones, with contestants being allowed phones provided by the team to communicate with them.

However, contestants cannot use books or magazines or any form of media that would keep them from interacting between each other.

Moreover, any inappropriate behaviour, intoxication, inappropriate nudity and staff discrimination can also result in them getting eliminated out of the competition.

So far, none of the contestants broke these rules, with the only elimination being a self-made choice by Sabrina, who left due to mental health reasons. 

We are now in the second week of the programme, so there’s a lot more set to happen. We’ll have to wait and see whether any of the contestants break the rules.

Portable Air Conditioning Units

If you don’t have central air conditioning, a portable air conditioning unit can be a lifesaver during the hot summer months. These units are easy to move from room to room and are much more affordable than installing a central air conditioning system. They are also a great option for those who live in apartments or other small spaces where central air conditioning isn’t an option.

Gas Barbecues (portable & regular)

Portable gas barbecues are great for picnics and trips to the beach, while regular-sized gas barbecues are perfect for backyard parties and family get-togethers.

Fans

Fans are another essential product for summer in Malta. They help circulate air and keep you cool during the hottest parts of the day. Whether you’re looking for a standing fan or a tabletop fan, there are many options to choose from to fit your needs.

Coolers

When you’re spending time outdoors in the summer heat, a cooler is a must-have to keep your drinks and snacks cool and refreshing. Whether you’re heading to the beach or having a picnic in the park, a cooler is essential to keep your food and drinks at the right temperature.

Chairs and Tables

If you’re planning to spend time outdoors this summer, you’ll need somewhere to sit and relax. A comfortable chair is a must-have for any outdoor activity, whether you’re lounging on the beach or sitting in your backyard. A table is also essential for outdoor dining, whether you’re having a family dinner or hosting a party.

France officially bans short haul flights to push train use

France officially bans short haul flights to push train use
May 24 2023 Share

A new ban was signed into law in France this Tuesday targeting short domestic flights for journeys which can be completed in two-and-a-half hours by train. 

Speaking in a decree, France’s transport minister Clement Beaune said that this is ‘an essential step and a strong symbol in the policy of reducing greenhouse gas emissions.’

Only three routes have been discontented: those which link Paris-Orly airport to the cities of Bordeaux, Nantes and Lyon. Other connecting flights will remain unaffected. 

The EU insisted, for the ban to apply, that the air route in question must have a high-speed rail alternative which makes it possible to travel in less than two-and-a-half hours. 

There must also be enough early and late running trains to enable travellers to spend at least eight hours at the destination. 

However, some have criticised President Emmanuel Macron for ‘watering down’ proposals which recommended bans on flights where train journeys were an alternative. 

Critics stated that high-speed train lines were already doing the job and the ban is basic lip-service to climate concerns. The three routes affected by the ban represent, according to estimates by group Transport & Environment, just 0.3$ of emissions produced by flights taking off from France and 3% of domestic flight emissions.
