I thought Muscat was supposed to be creating a new mentality, not encouraging the old Sicilian one of patronage
So here’s why William Mangion was in the PN video in 2008 and in the JosephMuscat.com video this year. He explained it all on Kalamita, a Super One show hosted by a hideous little creep who looks like something you’d have found hiding in the lavatories at sixth form (Alfred Zammit?).
He switched his support to the Labour Party because some time ago, when he was in financial difficulties and needed a job – the market for washed-up old singers being particularly poor except for campaign videos, apparently – he actually WENT TO THE PRIME MINISTER AND ASKED HIM FOR HELP.
In which country can you do this? And instead of saying, wow, I could get straight through to the PM and no phalanx of security guards blocked my path and told me to f**k off with my demands, William Mangion told Labour TV’s audience that he was displeased because the work they found for him “was not to my expectations”.
So then he tried Joseph. One of Labour’s many outreach programmes, which for the last four years have been operating exactly like the Moonies and other suspect sects, seeking out and drawing in life’s losers, unhappy people, the embittered and the miserable, those with grudges who feel hard done by, and promising them that with Jesus, who loves them, they will never be wanting, probably got wind of him and put him in touch.
“Sirt habib hafna ma’ Joseph,” Mangion said, “ghax fehmni, semghani, gie jiekol ghandi d-dar…”.
Ah, but did he find him work that meets his expectations?
We’ll have to wait for the upcoming JosephMuscat.com government to see that. There are going to be a lot of jobs going in childcare, apparently. Willie Mangion should start practising his nappy skills now.
