    Many have gone mental thanks to our political leaders for ruining our country. Young ones have no jobs and the resultant hardships causes mental agony

    Well , he was accompanied by two (not one) females! I agree with you! That’s a mania ! (Nothing to do with political or country)

    He probably didn't realise that it is not the Worlds End the place where lots of lovers come to bid a final goodbye and wanted to show off his undying love for the two women he loved. He couldn't decide which one to choose.
