  1. I see only evidence of a man who not only lacks the ability to think analytically but disdains the very notion of it.

  2. Very boring robotic statement from this plonker who lacks any backbone to do anything . Mutations is good at memorising speeches and then telling us how things should be but lacks in putting to action a plan. Kikiki dull

  3. why shouldnt the government be committed when its their duty to do so,enough with speeches and statements just get to work and show us what you can do,walk the talk.
