Because English has some words, that can be addressed to any body - example is Uncle, ( it can be mama, chacha, fufa, and what not ) so also Aunty (whether it is chcahi, mami, fufi, etc.) so also TO and DO are pronounced as TU and DU, where as GO is pronounced as GO only

Becuz English is a foreign language. And people like to criticize anything that belong to others. Very few engage in self-criticism.
