Princess Leia is dead – but never mind, because Mrs Muscat is dressed as a Jedi

At the gala ceremony to mark the start of Malta’s presidency of the EU Council, this evening at the Mediterranean Conference Centre: it was a little chilly, so the Prime Minister wore his favourite black coat, while Mrs Muscat channelled Star Wars in heavy gold.

    She looks rather Monty Pythonesque too.

    The PM is also keeping warm by not having a quick shave before he left home. Bogan.

      Actually all of them are bogans. Bring back the Nationalists! I’ve had enough of all these theatrics and bull****.

  • callixtus

    I’m at a loss for words. Baxxter, please help me.

    We are in for 6 months of entertainment.

  • Marina Ciarlo’

    You kill me, Baxxter.

    Wake me up when it’s all over, when I am wiser and I’m older.

    The Panama look, and there’s some facial reconstruction there. Any before and after pics anyone?

    • Yes, I noticed. She’s had work done to her jaw. They’re gearing up for the general election. He’s losing weight to be able to compete with Busuttil on that score, and she’s having her face fixed to be able to simper more effectively around brain-dead Sliema types.

    Perish the thought, miskin.

    When I saw her outfit it reminded me of something but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. But then, bingo! Muscat is no Ambrogio though, neither does she harbour a ‘langurino’ for him.

  • You are so right. I hadn’t thought of that.

  • alex

    He’s so clearly uninterested in her.

  • You’re right. It is my deep and abiding regret that I wasn’t born in a government flat in Nigret to mittilkless parents, didn’t marry that nice Joseph, didn’t spend my life trying hard to scrabble out of the gutter, and never had a gold satin cloak made for me by prisoners. Perhaps in another life. I also envy her stunning good looks, sharp mind and incredible talents, of course.

    It’s people like you who look up to people like Mr and Mrs Muscat and admire them. Learn that there are different kinds of people – yes, even in tiny Malta.

    Fat chance.

    Except did you know that spreading “fake news” (to cause commotion or unrest mind you) is an offence under Malta’s Criminal Code. It’s only a matter of time for this to be twisted.
