Miriam Dalli was today expected to attend the yearly concert by the Band Queen Victoria in celebration of the Festa tal-Madonna tal-Karmnu. Żurrieq is also part of her district so this is a big event for her or any other politician in the district.
Apparently, there has been a power cut in Żurrieq as part of a series of never-ending power cuts in Malta. People have been complaining about excessive and unusually long power cuts lasting for hours and even whole nights or days in some areas. I am actually surprised with the increasing dysfunction and the last time it felt like this was in the 1980s.
In any case, Banda Queen Victoria played their concert anyway because it is equipped with generators and all the Ministers and MPs from the district attended – except for Miriam Dalli who apparently was too ashamed to attend.
