Post no.24

January 9, 2009

Watching Xarabank – Friday 9th Jan 2009. It’s about prostitution. The panel:
a) John Busuttil reason for being there: BOQ?
b) Dr Mary Sciberras reason for being there: probably because she knows a thing or two about STIs
c) Marica Mizzi reason for being there: BOQ?? Perhaps because she conducts a health-related programme
d) Dr Adrian Vassallo reason for being there: he hates prostitution because he lives in Ta’ Xbiex
e) Rachel Cachia/Cauchi reason for being there: she’s reasonably good-looking
f) Censu (??) in white tie format reason or being there: he was brought up in Strait Street (I’m assuming in its heyday)
The discussion is of the highest standard imaginable – which is what we have become accustomed to with this programme … NOT
They keep getting clips of this “Ukrainian” prostitute banging on about who does what to whom and how much it costs in Maltese Lira (in the age of the €, mind you)…
I wouldn’t be surprised if I opened the papers tomorrow to learn that the government announces plans to tackle prostitution …

Vox Xarabank vox dei …

Exculpation: I only watch Xarabank because I like to know what’s currently gripping the average Maltese person’s imagination
