We Maltese are a very passionate bunch, and whether it’s our favourite patron saint or a beloved Eurovision singer, we tend to show our support in the most extra way possible. So you can only imagine what happens when we’re instead talking about a Prime Minister who won the last General Election with a record-breaking landslide victory.
During a political campaign that progressively felt more and more like the world’s most hardcore festa, here are some of Prime Minister Joseph Muscat’s biggest fans.
These three t-shirts that are actually being sold
A wallet to carry your leader around with you wherever you may go
Definitely the hottest accessory for the next fashion season, let Joseph guard your money.
This actual fortress
God Save the King … and the Castle.
Nothing says ‘forever a fan’ quite like a tattoo
Ok, we don’t know about you, but this might be a tad too much.
Because even if Joseph Muscat is one of the most polarising political persons to grace the island in the last couple of years, he definitely wasn’t the only reason behind some pretty weird shit which showed up over the last month.
Emblem-themed nail polish
Ok, let’s kick things off with the smallest (and somehow most discreet) item on this list. And you know Malta can effortlessly get weird AF when nails painted to have the major political party’s emblem is the most lowkey on a list.
Reports and photos of hampers being sent to households or distributed at political events (which is flat out illegal, by the way) have been making the rounds on Facebook for the last couple of weeks. Varying from bottles of wine, to bread, to corned beef, they kept getting weirder and weirder. Oh, and don’t forget the fake pearl necklaces on Mother’s Day.
A flower pot? Sure
Cool. Cool, cool, cool.
