He wants the Muslim vote, but he thinks he’ll lose votes by saying he met Malta’s Muslim community, and doesn’t want to be filmed and photographed in this context.

How different to 2013, when #lookingforsnowwhite rounded up all the press and cameras he could for Joseph Muscat’s encounter with Maltese Muslims, and his appointment of an ‘adviser on Muslim affairs’ when he first became prime minister.

Looks like he’s taken a break from flogging Maltese passports so as to buy votes instead.
