The humour just writes itself. Angelo Gafà has just been awarded a medal for “long and efficient service”. Technically the medal is awarded by the home minister. In practice he’s awarded it to himself.

It’s a prestigious medal indeed when famously a recent awardee was Ian Abdilla the guy whose idea of fighting crime was taking a photo of it.

He’s old enough to get the Muttley reference but for the benefit of the millennials here are some Wacky Races. Beats Konrad Mizzi at the PAC anytime.
