      It's not right I have spent many holidays in your country, I found your people kind and considerate but obviously this is all a sham. You are not a nice nation at all . But you have the power to change this, use your status to make a difference, you will feel good about it. Take a dog into your home and you will soon discover what a wonderful friend you have made!
