Anglu Farrugia, the Speaker of the House, opening his speech of greeting to European Commission big cheeses this afternoon:
“IT GIVES ME GREAT WELCOME AND PLEASURE TO YOU ALL TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES”

“What?” Juncker says.
“STAND UP! We can’t see you.”
“That’s your problem,” Juncker says. A flunkey rushes over to whisper (loudly) in Juncker’s ear: “It’s the usual practice in Malta.”
“Oh,” Juncker says drily, “I want to be as visible as possible. We should introduce this in our own parliament.”
