Six days into Malta’s presidency of the European Council and Muscat’s government is fighting already with the European Commission over how to categorise the €40 million it has budgeted for matters related to these six months.

And rest assured that if it has budgeted €40 million, then it will be spending €80 million or more. Think of all those minibars that can be raided, and all those thrills to be had from looking at ducks.
