    All these activities look somewhat artificial as they are intended to keep certain voter bases in good humor.

    Bring back the English language. Parents are spending all their earnings to educate their kids in international schools. The politicians kids were educated in England, so they had no feelings for the next generations and didn’t care. I’m sure our politicians still educate their kids in foreign countries. It’s a shame.
