  1. I ve only seen it in PF were a president just sneaks out of the country when he is going out for a working holiday.

    • As a nation we have really been taken for granted by the PF my brother, I wonder where the difficulty is in informing the nation that the president has departed for Israel on an official visit at the invitation of that country! Maybe he has just gone to sell emeralds.
