Not a lot seems to be going right for British diplomacy these days. At least as far Muddy Hollows is concerned.
Her Majesty’s Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs was in town today, talking shop and Brexit with his Slovenian counterpart the other day. And staying true to form, Jeremy Hunt stepped right into it.
So, this little gem from Muddy Hollows has gotten plenty of international attention.
Darij Krajčič, a LMŠ MP resigned because he stole a goddamn sandwich. Which was probably about most fun editors of the “also in the news” sections in the internationalmediahavehadforawhile. Incidentally this was the most media attention Muddy Hollows have had for a while, too.
Despite the outrage it caused in Muddy Hollows and beyond, the shitstorm triggered by European Parliament president Antonio Tajani in a speech during a commemorative event close to Slovenian-Italian border, could hardly have come at a better time. At least as far as Slovenian political landscape is concerned.
In case you
missed it, the veteran politician and co-chair of Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza
Italia had some choice words for the crowd gathered at Bazovica (Basovizza), a
small town on the Italian side of the Slovenia-Italy border, commemorating victims
of post-war massacres.
Were it not for the
hilariously hypocritical brouhaha over a couple of Instafluencers doing in the
European Parliament what Instafluencers do best, one would be excused for
thinking that 2019 EU elections in Muddy Hollows are eons away.
Namely, as a part of their #thistimeimvoting (#tokratgremvolit) campaign, Ljubljana office of the European parliament hauled a couple of Instagram influencers to Brussels, showed them the ropes and let them take selfies with Slovenian MEPs. All in the hope of them, well, influencing their numerous followers to actually give a fuck or two about the upcoming EU vote.
