138th Battle Of The Blues: Jolly Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe Declares His Next Move Is To Stay In Power

A jolly Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe declared that his next move is to stay in power.

He declared that in an interview on stage at the Stallions Tent on day three of the annual 138th Battle of the Blues at the SSC grounds yesterday.

Amidst the jolly banter and usual Royal – Thomian camaraderie displayed at the annual event, the cheerful Prime Minister contributed by leaving those present in stitches of laughter.

Minister of Finance Ravi Karunanayake was also present on stage.

One of the organizers briefly interviewed the joyous Royalist Prime Minister.

The question and answers of the brief interview is found below.

Question: Since you are the Prime Minister what will be your next move?
Answer: Next move is to stay in power

Question: What happened to the Wi-Fi balloon or google balloon?
Answer: Balloon will come, Wi-Fi will come everything will come.

Question: Someone said can’t we put a condom and send the balloon up?
Answer: No men, we can’t put a condom and put it up because we don’t have enough kids that are coming out now.

Question: What is happening to your pre-election promise of bringing the previous regime members to justice? You promised to get this man in and that man in when you come to power. What is happening sir? What is going to happen to those that did harm to our beautiful country?

Answer: We are investigating, we are going to courts and we are allowing lawyers to make money. Lawyers have been our biggest supporters of our party so we can’t let them down.
Question: Will Sri Lanka ever come out of this rut and be a nation we can be proud of during your tenure?

A notable absentee at the match ending awards ceremony this year was Daham Sirisena the son of President Maithripala Sirisena. Unlike last year, this year’s awards distribution went ahead uninterrupted when Daham Sirisena got on stage uninvited and shook the hand of Premier Ranil Wickremesinghe. He was later ushered to a corner of the stage by one of the organizers.

“Thank god, the fucker stayed away this time unlike last year” said the same old Royalist who asked ” What the fuck was he doing up there?” last year. (By Janaka Ranaweera)

    Bond Scam Ranil Wickramasinghe should be impeached along with Ravi. K South Korean President Park was impeached for a far less crime – she did not mess with the Central Bank of South Korea,
    The buck stops with Ranil for looting the CB and Sri Lankan Airlines after Mahidna Jarapassa’s financial crimes.

    Ranil does not give a hoot about Sri Lankan people. Bond Scam Ranil ONLY dances to the tunes of Washington,: takes advice on money laundering from the IMF and the fake policy advice industry, in this era of Fake News and Fake Development that goes with Phantom Aid – like the Volkswagon car factory , Horana tire factory, Hambantota white elephants..

    Ranil is Washington’s man and Mahinda Jarapassa China’s Dude!

    Bond Scam Ranil takes his instructions on governance from Washington DC and a network of economic hit men at Harvard’s International dev. Center’s Ricardo Hausman and his deep divers, the right wing Millennium Challenge Corporation, that funds Mackinsey to give neo liberal policy adivise to Ranil, and the IMF) that want to own and control Economic Policy and Governance in Sri Lanka..

    These US govt. funded outdated neoliberal development policy “experts” screw up countries in the global south, (including Greece that has joined the global south and remains trapped in Europe as its people are being savagely impoverished as it lost its Brexit chance). They provide “economic advise” to consolidate the IMF’s and the Washington Deep State’s hold in Sri Lanka and the economy to advance US security interests in Lanka,– to balance China.

    Ahilan Kadirgamar wrote an excellent piece in the Daily Mirror editorial page on the dangers of listening to US advisors who sell out dated neoliberal bunk, on economic growth in an era of de-globalization – bad advice that is being meekly followed by the Colonized individuals at the PM’s office. Bond scam Ranil got Sri Lanka into a massive debt trap with IMF at Washington’s behest, rather than ask IMF to track down off shore secret bank accounts and ensure return of stolen funds of Mahinda Jarapassa, using its useless experts so Lanka can pay its massive DEBT

    . IMF is supposed to be a Global Financial Governance institution! It works for the global 1 percent and to impoverish the rest of the world and gives Central banks advice on Money Laundering. Arjuna Mahendran and the Blackguard Christine Legarde hit it off very well indeed! The interests of Sri Lanka people is the last thing on Ranil’s mind!

      Readers are kindly reminded that all three performers on stage, and the pathetic character attempting to interview them , are all products of the Reid Avenue school . Quite a testimony for an institution that also boasts of such stellar old boys like Malik,Eran,Ajith,Arjuna,and numerous other individuals who are doing so much to ” stay in power” at any cost .

      Ranil will do crazy politics this year as his uncle JR who created Executive Presidency and 1983 riots.

      ‘If a frog is put suddenly into boiling water, it will jump out, but if the frog is put in cold water which is then brought to a boil slowly, it will not perceive the danger and will be cooked to death.’

      This is what Ranil is doing to the Rajapaksas. In fact, this is what Ranil has learned at Harvard University by doing a crash course in politics. This year is a crucial year for the Sri Lankan politics. The Rajapaksas will go for an intense campaign, most likely Ranil will heat the pan to kill the frogs too quickly, but the frogs are going to jump out. This will lead to a bloody disaster.

    Harsha De Silva is ecstatic with Ranils answers seen clapping away. That is a gauge to measure the level of his PhD intellect.
    yes…. tes…. wait for the yahapalanaya “Rosa Mal”…………… Jayasekera another Royal Clown? was he deputising Daham of last year?

    Jolly Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe- who cares whether there is a drought, Sira will take care of it.
    parakrama Samudraya overflowing………….. A cheerful Prime Minister did he contribute some of that Bond cash ?? Wonder, where was the sagaya Mahendran? Missed out the big match?

      A cheerful Prime Minister did he contribute some of that Bond cash ??

      Some say, it is his wife who collect the loot. that is how every minister does things.

      Sri lanka is a country and mostly depends on imports even for food such as rice, onion, potato and chillie. Sri lanka’s trade imbalance is always in favour of the foreign country. Even for the crying out loud GSP.+, if both the exports, because fish is not goin g there, and imports were stopped, it is the Europe who loses some money and not Sri lanka.as the percentage of exports to Europe was 0.1%.

      Anyway, Why sri lanka is signing teade agreements in Asia when Sri lanka can and does not export ? Is it for IMF ?

      Ranil came to 100 day govt saying he would increase large one time taxes to very rich people. but, he did not do that because, IMF don’t like.

      Million corporation is George Zorro, church and CIA money into various projects. George Sorros one objective always is economically cripple the country. Probably, that is why Templeton fund dropped $ 1.5 billion in one sitting. That is to drop the rupee to the bottom.

      Yes Lawyers in Sri Lanka are famous for dragging cases to make money…
      one of the biggest reasons that the country is not developing and make us a joke in the eyes of developed nations…

      really nice, keep delaying to take action against the Rajapaksa criminals just seems that is another thing Sri Lankan politician are famous for delay tactics and asking for more time.

      Harsha De Silva was seen with his hands around Namal Rajapaksas shoulders like the best of friends at the Royal Thomian match too.
      all good friends it seems…

    As said, this may all be light hearted banter. Nevertheless, it is disturbing because jokes reveal what is in a person’s inner mind.

    So Ranil just wants the lawyers (their the biggest supporters) to make money. He considers 62 lakhs of people who voted to bring him in to power, many risking their lives, to be less important than a few sharks out to make a big bite.

    We cannot develop because of our culture. We are addicted to umpteen number of gods soothsayers kattadiyas. We have no self respect . We depend on unseen unheard gods to do every thing from passing exams finding jobs and schools for our children healing the sick winning elections and etc.. Our main religion Buddhism is against people looking for material benefits. We are expected give up every thing in life and work towards attaining nibbana. So be it .. We should be happy that we are poor.

      Max, the Thomians have the Rajapaksas the biggest bunch of criminals the country has ever seen…
      But they are ashamed of them and are all for seeing them punished for their crimes.

      But yes their are some Thomian just like some Royalists who are part of this “Game of Shape”(cover up) culture who are protecting these criminals.

      These fellow who subscribe to this “Game of Shape” (cover up) culture are a disgrace to their Religions, Schools political parties and our beautiful country that is being destroyed by them.

        Uncle Silva,

        Compare to what these so called Royal gang of present day had done to destroy the country, 3 young Rajapakshe brothers have done nothing. That may not be in line with your political alignment, but no option, you have to accept the truth, at least privately.

          1) Rugby players murder
          2) Earth tremouring night car races
          3) Numerous rape allegations made onthem

          Are these minimal to you ? What a sheepish man you should be to lick the balls of entire Rajapakshe men again and again.. .. shame on you max- if you have a wife or children they should be ashamed of you really

    I am sorry, I don’t agree with an one of your comments.

    I am added that the Prime Minister is not allowed the opportunity to enjoy himself at his big match unhindered, and we make him a joke instead.

    When will we learn to let Mr Wickremasinghe enjoy a bit of levity, without judging him on that as well?

    Not cricket, I say!

    The problem is that we have this tendency to connect everything to cricket.

    The earlier team led by MR declared the innings too early in a huge case of misjudgment and lost as a result. Instead of taking it in the spirit of the game he wants what is left of that declared innings to be played again so that he may win.

    RW must be out of his mind. Voters will be equally mad to elect him again after his involvement with
    Mahendran in robbing the Central Bank. If this happened in another country, he would be impeached
    and kicked out of the country by now.

    Ranil is trying to be cute. But his set of bond deals did nothing for the country. He actually trusted the LTTE- grouping to flourish up our reserves, but it ended stuck in some kind of Fiat hopelessness.

    Either Mahandran-Komaraswamy grouping is stupid, or it was done with great deliberation in mind (with Ranil at the helm of it). Ok, let’s face it: A great number of Sinhalese themselves trusted the LTTE grouping where the country’s money was concerned. Fellows only saw Prabakaran and suicide bombers as being bad. Smooth financers were beyond their comprehension.

    But the Sinhala Elite knew, but didn’t care, and placed their bets on the regional alliance, and have become extremely wealthy and influential since. For the next 500 years, only they, the Sinhala 1%, will remain very wealthy indeed. They like the idea.
