The interest shown by various organisations, now, is more the attraction to gain publicity and nothing else. Hardly any genuine concern is shown, and after the show it is business as usual. Our country is on the road to destruction and struggling for life. What with weak governance and the deterioration of law and order, and the dereliction of the economy. Facts at the bottom end of living is at a new low and is different to the declarations of everything is 'Hunky DORY' is incorrect and, mostly misleading.
