    Why? Is a rich and powerful country, but also an inferior and short-sighted society, with a more number of ignorant voters than most of the civilized world, so attractive?

    • Henry williams says:

      As you say anon. It is the rightwing voters
      That cause these problems. In a nice country.
      And a leader who likes them in order to get
      The votes.

    At least he didn’t have to convert like previous generation conductors ‍♂️
