    Bad idea - too much chance to cause offence

    A very, very, very bad idea. That is not what they are there for. If a missionary dabbles in the politics of the country he goes to then he is in the wrong vocation.

    The trouble is that we pay taxes and are bound by the same laws - makes it hard to stay out.

    In some countries, being non-political is easier than in others.
