      What’s wrong with reading from a tele prompter?
      All world leaders do that when making official speeches. Some read from a written paper while others use Q-cards or tele prompters.
      This is Gotabhaya’s Speech to the Nation as the new President. One cannot make an off the cup speech here.

          I am still better than Donald Trump whose mother-tongue is English.
          Donald Trump has made 188 typos so far, including infair for unfair, Counsel McGahn as Councel, amendmen, boarder, so many.

              Dr. Gnana Sankaralingam
              Oh, by being a gamaya who was educated in Sinhala medium, I have many times corrected your lies and bogus assumptions about Sri Lanka’s history and also the origin of Tamil language. I am very proud of it.
              I bet you have no idea at all about the origin of the expression “off-the-cuff.” If you have known, you would have mentioned it here.
              The origin of the expression is that dinner guests who were supposed to make speeches at dinners in early 1900s used to write their notes on their shirt sleeves (cuffs).
              Anybody who knows the origin of the idiom knows “it is not cup, but cuff”, as you cannot write notes on the cup!!!!!
              It is that simple.
              I pity you.

        Chamapawathiye,
        wimala baellige putha would never be able to rob out the state again. This time, not ballige putha Mahinda but murderous criminal thug- GOTA will oversee wimal s work.
        There even if I disagree with GOTA being won the election, but I have some sorta of hope about wimal or the like will have to face it somehow. As one who lived in the US ( in a developed country), Gota should have some sense of being adherent to rule of law. Wimal buruwanse shoudl be fallen to rotten hell, then only we can see a better srialnka for all srilankens.
        I think this time, around they succeeded by fooling almost everyone incl you. I know even degree holders supported Gota for one reason, that was the failure in that Easter sUNDAY bombing.
        But we perfectly lknwo that Rajapkshe ballige puthas are behind that too.
        Hisbulla or najibulla stood with them in th eend, so then why those rascals inflicted riots against innocient MUSLIM famlities.
        Sarath weerasekaraa and Balige putha Madhu madawa were as the torch holders to Gota yestreday, But i have no doubt, these men would be marginalized in the days to come.
        Any lkind of opportunists and extremists should be fated with the drug addicts# fate in Manila. I would be happy, if gota become mad and slaughter them all at once, At least then we can see a better country, where Democracy and dignified life is respected.

          How did Wimal “rob out the state?”
          Elaborate and prove your allegation.
          When Wimal worked as the Housing Minister, he has acted within the purview of his position, the same way his predecessors had worked.
          One thing for sure, Wimal will never do anything to undermine the sovereignty and independence of my country. I don’t have such faith in Gotabhaya.
          How come you don’t criticize others?
          Why only Wimal?
          Is it because you think the high profile politicians, filthy wealthy and the elites have a right to do anything and get away with their crimes scot-free with the help of their eminent lawyers who charge a bomb?

          The speech was an indirect threat to those who opposed him especially the minorities. Gota should remember almost half of the voters voted against him 47%.

            What you say is not true and therefore unfair.
            Gotabhaya’s speech didn’t contain any threat to minorities.
            I have some policy differences with him. But, you should also remember Sinhalese will back him in their full strength, if the need arises.

        These men would not be able to abuse the state the way they did sofar, becasue all eyes are on HORA PAWULA… I think people thought that it is worth giving them a second chance. Majority of the lankens are stupd people. I travelled to lanka in July whome ever I spoke with were to rascals. For no reasons.
        Hiru and Derana Media Mafia abused the people the name of Media FREEDOM restored by RW led govt.

        Champa, I agree with you that there’s nothing wrong with using whatever technology, including a teleprompter, is available. The long-term effects of such habits is a different matter.
        .
        However, the objection should be seen in the light of many of us fearing that Gota is incapable of thinking out solutions for himself. Is he capable of acting on his own when no one is on hand to advise?
        .
        As for speech-making ability (and even more fluency in whatever language), that doesn’t matter overmuch. The same goes for your typo.

        Yes, the story of the appearance of relics from Naga Loka in Kelaniya is a BIG LIE.
        Besides, Nagas never appear in Naya form (serpent form), let alone bringing sacred relics.
        I am sure Pohottuwa is behind this silly tale.

          Champa,
          how come you behave some what rational :)

          I did not some searchs on the info and foudn, that DILIP jayaweera WP is the architect of this saga.
          :
          See, buddhists, deceive the buddhists. Pohottuwa just thought that would be an another trick to abuse the mind set of the gullible.
          .

          I am LEARNT man in SCIENCE and I question myself, if anything to be passed from a to be there should be a way. These men to have been blessed with dhathu karanduwa, do not utter a single word, how the karadnuwa came to their hand ?
          .
          And why not they allow other speicallists to analyse it properly and clear the doubts of the masses AS westerners are used ?
          .
          That LEARNT prof. but obsessed by Rajapakshe manthra, got caught by having betrtayed the academics in that saga.
          See, this is the very point we have to focus on.
          This country and nation is so made blind believers to any blant lies. Sometimes, you can notice them easily but people to fall on that weak and just follow the other is beyond my understanding.
          Champo – it is not the buddhism preached by LBuddha being practised in SL, but a life style, which has been more mixed up with Hindhuistic rituals.
          They the people like some walks of people in INDIA (majaority) get caught easily by any tricks being played by anyone.
          Just try is out, Champo, if you live in SL; ASKING people to EAT ” droplets of sharf” telling them, that they would all be blessed with FORTUNE,…. no doubt, the numbers get line up will block the cities .
          Ask even them to eat COW DUNG for gaining something, that would be the same.
          This is unfortunately the truth with my relatives down there ( i am living in Europe).
          No matter, the truths lie aside, they the totally misled people, just believe it and follow the other.

            Not all Buddhists come under your category.
            Most Buddhists do not believe in such stories, but they tend to show indifference towards others who believe in them.
            And in this case, those who went there may not necessarily be people who believe in the the story. They could be regular worshipers and also those who were brought there to attract more people.

              I dont think you are right, Champio. Champio.. you as one who live in SL should be well aware of all these. Right ?
              .
              Please interview 100 or 1000 that go and worship Temple. Most of them have no idea for what purpose they go to that place.
              :
              Let alone, that ballige putha in robes, but with an academic Title, Prof. Kollupitiya someone…. had no knowledge to question, how that Karanduwa came into being….. what is it made of… etc. but we got to see him placing those gems-like few stones shining in that karanduwa. I do believe, I can bet, this is a hoodwinkng tactic number one of Ballige putha Rajakshe.
              :
              They the ones that harmed that much to own folk know all tricks unlik RW or any other leaders in this country. We perfectly know how they KILLED that ahinsaka Kolla Thadjudeen and heartelessly robed out the body parts of the dead…… how unethical these buggers have been, but to become leaders to a folk whose literacy rate is equal to that of Singapore 95%.
              .
              We are speechless today, I think only way out to committ suicide with Rajakashes… then only we leave some peace to this nation.

            Dear Sam Fernando,
            .
            Champa, for all that her nationalism verges on racism, is pretty rational – and very sincere. I’ve told her that many a time, and she doesn’t really mind it from me because I have respect for her.
            .
            Since we Sri Lankans are obsessed with other people’s mistakes, may I point this out? You have twice used the wrong form of the adjective, “learned”.
            .
            https://writingexplained.org/learnt-vs-learned-difference
            .
            As for me, I always use the British form “learnt” which I learnt as a child for the past and past participle form of the verb. This may be a losing battle, because even on my computer the spell-check almost always operates using American spelling. American English will continue to smother the British variety. At bottom, it is a matter of economic dominance.
            .
            However, as an adjective, it is “learned” that must always be used – even in America. There are other examples, but it’s not easy to bring them to mind. Ah, yes, “blessed” as an adjective has two syllables.
            .
            Two different confusions that are common: “few” and “a few” have different meanings, as do “little” and “a little”. Also: it’s = it is. The possessive should not have an apostrophe. I know this last is confusing, but think of “his”, “hers” and “theirs”. All possessive pronouns, not like “dog’s”.
            .
            I’m sorry to be getting so pedantic – especially about “it’s” – which doesn’t ever lead to misunderstanding, although it mildly irritates me.
            .
            But spellings: British: “Cancelled”, American: “Canceled”. We have still to come to that on Gota’s passport!

              Thank you for the language lesson.
              Though we have learnt about sentence construction and correct places to put commas at school, I hardly follow it now.
              About the word “cancelled”, even the seal used by American Embassies to stamp passports has the wording “Cancelled” not “Canceled.”

              Thank you Mr SM for your corrections.
              :
              I am sorry if my improper English writing misled you this way.
              :
              I add my comment while waiting for my train tram , bus, plane or taxi, so I dont care much about the grammar mostly but let my comment be passed. Else, I would not have time to hang on with CT articles regardless of its valuable content.

              This I just wanted to add to you, since the bunch of thugs are back to power. You as a lovable husband, father, grandpa, please take good care of you- we are behind avatars, but your name is well known to the killing squads of Gotabaya et al. Your families might not know when your life would have been taken away by them. They are provable masters to have committed high crimes.
              .
              Let me also correct in your last para. There you have added British: “Cancelled”, American: “Canceled”
              What mattered to them was not “cancelled/canceled” but ” cancel”.
              Btw:
              The Difference between Learned and Learnt
              Whether you’re saying you learned something or learnt something, you’re talking about the same thing—the process of finding out, acquiring, or retaining knowledge or information. The only difference is that the way you spell it says something about where you’re from. Learnt and learned are both used as the past participle and past tense of the verb to learn. Learned is the generally accepted way of spelling it in the United States and Canada, while the rest of the English-speaking world seems to prefer learnt for now.

              Why for now? The American English tendency toward making irregular verbs into regular ones has started influencing British English, which is why the -ed variant is becoming increasingly used around the world. Soon learned might be the most common form everywhere.

              I love people ve been pedantic, dont worry about that. TC Sam.

          By the way, how come that Prof. Monk did not oppose to the lad who brought that relics ?

          Besides, that boy is said to have been a freak in FB .. as I read somewhere.

          This man in robes, has tied a pirth noole around my wrist few years ago, I thought he could be a wise monk. But to me as i see it is today, none of the monks in spot light today are wise enough to be monks.

              Chamapawathiye,
              Please wake up. I dont want to change my opinion about lanken folks, they are so stupid…. this RELICS saga is no different to that of Somawathiya -BUDURAS:
              .
              If a high priest of a most sacred temple endorses the public statments which indeed misleads the nation (incl. lot more chamas), do you feel it is right ? I have met this pseudo monk whenever I travelled to SL except my last visit (July 2019). He does not know me by name, but I know him very well. He is not at all a genuine priest. And most of on RAJAPAKSHE stage are no different to this man hidden behind the robes. He is not a real good monk but another caricature of Rajapakshe clan.
              We the born buddhists in general have a greater respect on KELANIYA temple for some historical reasons.
              But we dont want to be misled by anyone right ?.
              This monk could question ” where the piththala pahana (karanduwa” came from”:
              He is an another to have been wearing ” academic title” Prof. right ?:
              If even the ones with Prof Titles behave no different to grass eaters, what cant happen to lanken society today ?
              Please listen to the telecast in which Prof. has the audacity to commend the mad lad’s statements on ” the pearls /gems or shined balls as we got to see on the screens”.
              We are in a world today where we can question where those balls came from and how they were transported from under water to so called gupta man’s to hand.
              If Punnakku would have been given to you covering in a LINDT chocalate wrap, would you eat them ? My gosh, where have our people been taken to ?

              That says everything about your maturity. Please join back to Kindergarten and try to educate yourself. That can for sure help you further.
              :
              Dr Dambare Amila has been doing a great service. He has provably done a lot in people s awareness programs. I am afraid, I cant disagree with him whatever he comes with.
              :
              I am not UNP supporter, but I am born ANTI Rajapakshe style rascals. I am against anyone that abuse the average mind set of the country targetting their selfish power gain tactics.
              :
              Now Chamapawathiye, as one of their close confidiantes would not agree with us, but we are well aware of the size of the high crimes RAJAAKSHES committed.
              :
              The loads on their agenda from 18.11.2019. will be lot more. Wait and see, we are very patient. I have no doubt, before 3 months, people will see the greater change towards the FAIRNESS and DEMOCRATIC rights of people. Media men would again be persecuted. Sirsasa, Siyatha would be targeted but Derana and Hiru would be placed above their heads to continuously mislead the very same people incl. you Chamapawathiye.

        Be careful what you are writing in social media about the mara family, his clans, and corrupt thuggish stooges behind them. The white van could be at your doorstep at any time on any day. People deserve what they voted for, this is demoo-crazy. There will be no end for this family dynasty rule in this moron paradise hell for the next 20-20 years.By that time we all be gone, may be by white van or natural death.

              C’mon Sam, what’s wrong with asking for evidence?
              Look, when you talked about Naga relics from Naga Loka I agreed with you right away because I know by heart they are not sacred relics and Nagas will never come out of water to give them to a man.
              I know it was not true because I have seen those shiny balls before. They are called “Naga Eye Balls,” a set of 9 you can buy for about 20 – 30 US Dollars.They are like “feng shui” charms, you know. They come in assorted colours. Pink colour ones are to attract men.

          Thank you Velu. People are misled as some commenters added above. Where the superstition and medi mafia are there, it is much easier to manipulate the average mindset.
          This Minister Ranawaka made it very clear yestreday. Blatant lies have been spread to achieve their selfish gains. That in the end succeeded. But how they face the world next is a dillemial question.
          :
          I will take good care of you. You too please.
          I am sorry for the nothern srilankens, over 95% of them rejected Gota,and may be living in fears again.
          .
          So, Gota et al will have their own agendas to stand against the people, but dont worry, we are always with you.
          I dont care about race, religion or whatever the banner we have to place before us, so long the people behave respectful.
          Alone the HOO rained by the crowd towards the UNP MINISTERs and leaders yestreday in Ruwanwalisaeya premises proved how uncivilized those folks have been.
          These villagers would do anything to please Rajaakshes.
          Rajaakshes abuse them on broad day light as they would kill and gundown their dissidents.
          I have no hope about future srilanka, but see that we are nearing to become an another Zimbabawe in Indian Ozeaon.

      President Gotabaya Rajapaksa,

      Congratulations on you being elected to be president with deception and fooling a fraction of the populace, mean IQ 79, aided and abetted by Sinhala Buddhist Racism coupled with Wahhabi-Salafi Terrorism.

      The election map says it all.

      We now have a Land where the Rajapaksa Mafia rules, and the Sinhala Buddhist suspects their fellow minority citizens to be the enemy, when in fact, they are the victims of Sinhala Buddhist Racism and Facisam, and the minorities label the Sinhala Buddhists as Racists and Facists.

      What you have to do is that you need to rein in the Racists and Facists, among the Sinhala Buddhists, who are the CAUSE, of many calamities, like the separatist war and Wahhabi Salafi terrorists.

      Just look at the election map and the election results.

      1. About 65-70 percent of the Sinhala Buddhists voted for you. Still, 30-35 percent of the Sinhala Buddhists voted for Sajith Premadasa.

      2. About 10 percent of the minorities voted for you. About 90 percent voted for Sajith Premadasa.

      Sajith lost because he was tainted by the duo Ranil W and Sirisena, and of course by the Wahhabi Salafi Terrorism.

      You do have a lot to do to correct this imbalance. Can Sri Lanka be another future Singapore, with no racism, no religion and where merit and hard work and ethics prevail, even though the mean IQ is 79 compared to the Mean IQ of 108 for Singapore?

          It is time for the Para-Sinhala to shed the image, Sinhalaya Modaya, and get some intelligence and common sense, and share with others. The 2,500 civilization has not got it yet.

          Did you hoot when Gotabaya Rajapaksa was being sworn in as the UNP PM and other minsters came on the scene at Anuradapura? Somebody need to tech the Para-Sinhala some good sportsmanship, to be good sports.

        Amarasiri,
        Election results tell why this country has a low mean IQ. 30-35% Sinhalayo and 90% of minorities voted for Sajith. These two legged donkeys with very low IQ who voted for Sajith could not understand the speeches given by Gotabhaya highlighting his vision and policies. They understood very well the cheap speeches of Sajith promising freebies.

      Srilanka is said to be one another poor country though they lift it up in order them to gain their targets. How come midincome earning country be having ones 40% of the population whose wages would not reach even 2 dollar a day (400 rupees) ?
      :
      Yesterday alone the big ceremony for such the westerners or any other developed nations would NOT even spend few bucks but few hours only, showed the world how idiotic and stupid the president elect in SL would be.
      What goes through their heads are nothing beyond their WELL-IN A FROG mentality, which would guide them ” that we are sinhalaya”: But Ethiopians and other nations that were then called far poor are overtaking us today. Just becasue they LOVE their nation and country unlike our blood F, leaders that rebuild their monachies.

Grabbed the war victory from General Fonseka and it became ‘Gota’s War’. China, murder, sharks, white vans, extortion, intimidation, racism, violence, BBS, mega corruption and etc,etc: all history.

      b. did his job so well in killing thousands of young men and woman in Mathale District when he was the CO during 88/89 period and recomended by Ranjan Wijerathna the butcher of that time.

      c. find he needs to fight a real war in N/E in early 90s and find many offiers are coming in sealed coffins and got a US visa and worked as a Gas station attendant.

      Impressive, man has given up on independence square but has chosen Ruwanwelisaya Stupa for his coronation. What message is he trying to convey and what image is he trying to project? There were thousands of saffron clad persons among the crowd. Don’t they have anything better to do? Is it like in the olden days coronation was conducted by Biku’s? Gota is once again determined to take country back, dark ages.

      About removing portraits from the walls of state institution and replacing them with just the Emblem of Srilanaka, perhaps portraits of Assgiria. Where was Assgiria who welcome a Hitler in Gota?

      Its so happened on this auspicious occasion I couldn’t help reading a news item that appeared in the media which should worry you not today but from tomorrow onwards. Here is an excerpt from the news item:

      Former SS guard goes on trial over 5,230 murders in what could be last ever Nazi prosecution of its kind

      ….
      ….
      Bruno Dey, who joined the SS in his teens, covered his face on his recent arrival at court in a wheelchair, on the third day of a 23-day trial, scheduled to run until late February. As a result of the ages of those involved, each trial day is limited to two hours a day and there are a maximum of two trial days per week.

      Facing 5,230 counts of accessory to murder, Dey claimed in a statement he had no knowledge of the mass murders under way at the Stutthof concentration camp, despite admitting seeing prisoners led into the gas chambers, hearing their screams and noting the rattling of the steel door.

        Rear Admiral Sarath Weerasekera was seen behind Gota yesterday. Has Gota allocated him a job yet, perhaps white washing Navy’s past kidnapping for ransom business.

Fortunately he stood near the gate and ran inside the embassy compound when challenged by LTTE. Had he stepped out, he would be now lying six feet under. So much for your cardboard weeraya.

          I thought Nande woould have lost his Deposit ther,e like what happened to JVP Prince.
          Funny Election this .. What do you reckon ,, mate

          Bathudeen has already cleaned the diving board , Must be waiting for an auspicious time to leap.

          Wonder what your Sampathar and the Vella Kid Abraham are up to, after asking their loyal followers to Vote for Keselwatta Kid to stop a Sinhala Man becoming the President…

            By the way so far I know only 4 ministers have resigned. Patali is one of them. What job has been offered to him in crooked Mahinda’s cabinet?
            Watch out Navin Nayakka and his family are eager cross over materials.

            Okay what job are you being offered and are you fit for the job?
            You should offer good jobs to soma, Lal Loo, Hela, …………….they did relentless campaign for Gota.

    Sorry to say this, but the Sinhalese morons have spoken…they talked about sending the 225 MPs home just a few months ago, but when presented with an alternative to voting in the same old criminals, they balked.

    The Sinhalese morons don’t give two hoots about justice and the application of the rule of law equally to all citizens.

    Now the racists will start crawling out of the woodwork, with the blessings of the Buddhist priests, no less.

    Even if some visionary ideas are implemented and new educational and economic opportunities are afforded to the hitherto downtrodden masses (which would be most welcome), there will be a cancer of corruption, injustice and impunity eating away at the foundations of a just society.

    Just look at the rogues gallery surrounding the Rajapakses, as always. Leopards don’t change their spots and it would be naivety in the extreme to place any trust in them.
    Remember how so many on this forum have been made to swallow their words born out of naive enthusiasm after the 2015 election?
    The allegations of financial fraud and manslaughter against the Rajapakses are so grave and chilling, that no civilised society would have even promoted one of them as a presidential
    candidate unless and until those charges have been proved wrong. Seems like Sinhalese never learn.

    I myst say, no real good will come out of this result..

    Time will tell who is he. Time will tell us what kind of President is he. Time will tell us about his success and failure. Time will tell us a lot about him, Time will tell us if he can make Sri Lanka a paradise or hell on earth ; Time will tell us if people are right or wrong in electing him, Time will tell us how MR family react to him power, Time will tell us if family dispute erupt? Time will tell us if MR’s wife is happy with Gota’s power . Time will tell us how Gota react to local and international pressures. Time will tell us if an Amy officer could rule this nation, Time will tell us if this politics is a good tiding or bad tiding for Sri Lanka. 15 million Sinhalese can not do little with 1.2 Indians around them, 15 million Sinhalese could do little with 1.2 Chinese around them, 15 million Sinhalese could do little 800 million westerners around them for many geopolitical reasons. So, we are not alone in this world, Sinhalese people must know all this, when they behave, when they live with other communities in SL and the world. So, you are not in own planet in this world?

    The real winner is Ranil. Sajith wins, Ranil is PM. Sajith loses, Ranil is Opposition leader. Either way Ranil has a top job, car, security and perks.

    But how is Ranil better off than Gota? Because Gota has power, enemies, responsibilities along with his top job, car, security and perks, whereas Ranil can relax and doze in his armchair as usual.

    No wonder Ranil wouldn’t allow Sajith to be UNP leader. After leading the UNP for 25 disastrous years Ranil can now sleep again in the Opposition with no responsibilities at all for another 5.

    Most politicians habitually lie. The new president will probably show his true face during the months and years to come. All the posturing for the cameras and foreign delegates will be just memories, while economic management, freedom of expression, the right to life, the right to protest, the right to information, the upholding of universal human rights are all factors that will be tested in the times ahead. If the citizens’ lives become better with affordable living costs, good educational opportunities, satisfactory community health and employment for suitable candidates, then he would have been successful. However, if after four years the population is lumbering under an oppressive and stifling autocracy, he would have failed.

      Even the Arabs say: fee fulus, fee kuwais – maafi fulus maafi kuwais, meaning having money is good, not having money is not good. as simple as that. Have a nice sip and a nice day.

      Unfortunately most Sri Lankans are afflicted with an ailment called ‘pre-conceived notion syndrome” and they keep hammering their feet in frustration, what can Gota do for that. Folks don’t forget Deep State, False Flags have reached Lanka shores too, and there is blood in the hands of Ranil, Rauf, Rishard, Hizbullah and host of other Yahapalana rogues from Easter Bombings, it is these blood thirsty devils that are very very very dangerous.

    Work begins. The “Ex” Minister of Agriculture and General Secretary of SLFP , Mr. Duminda Dissanayake announced that THEY would be forming a “New Government”. Will the New President, please take a little time or get someone to read the “Presidential Commission Report” in which, there will be found the evidence of this “Vagabond” relating to the “Renting” of a building to house his Ministry. “GOTA” please have a “White Van” ready for these types of vagabonds to be transported to their well deserved “Destiny”. There are so many in your “CAMP” to be given such “Transportation”. Yet a word of caution : Tighten your own security. If not these vagabonds will put you in that same “White Van” you very well know and justify saying it is “KARMA”. Better to be AWARE and BEWARE.

    I heard, every time, President office asked PM to consider something Ranil had told ” ” Just leave it for the time being because I am not ……..”. so, everything was delayed. that is why Sri lanka needs a dictator. Both the not so executive president and trying to be executive PM will not work for Sri lanka. The next debacle is Speaker wants to be the RULER too. I thought Speaker is responsible only to maintain the parliament which is another Peliyagoda Fish Market.
    PAw da, KAru Jayasuriya was ready to be the National candidate too. But, his concern was how to keep his job after all these elections. He sys some one was keeping letters on my Table. so, I did those.

    we have seen several presidents and govts from DSS. but the country remains poor/underdeveloped.. recognition of SL as a multi religious and multi ethnic polity would pave the way for prosperity. ALL have to be partners in the attempt to establish development. Only inclusive institutional arrangements can bring about development. inclusive includes all ethnic groups and the masses at large. our institutions have been extractive-serving only the power elite.

    So sorry Lanka has a weeraputhra kallathoni for a president.

    If he’s still an USA citizen, has applied for a renunciation of foregoing his status quo as an American how long can he hoodwink the world.

    One fine hopefully constipated shit will hit the ceiling.

    I will give him 3 months time to get into a stressful situation where his backside will explode with his hammered [ piles ] causing panic by exploding onto the innocent minority communities.

    After winning the rigged polls, he’s inviting those who voted against to join hands with him to grow an united nation..

    On the election platforms he howled, yelled and bowled many a bumper in cricketing parlance ridiculing the Tamil’s and the Muslim’s by stating that his was a Buddhist nation where the low class infidels have to play catch ball with the majestic yak tribes.

    How long will it take for the likes of Duminda Silva to be pardoned,released from jail to begin their drug selling and killing activities.

    When will the gangster like Buddhist monks start running wild what will he do. ?

    I am on my one knee singing hosannas to all the god’s that by going on a boat I am now able to lead a peaceful life far far away from this hellhole of a cesspit [ gugoda ].

    Mr. Kallathoni, please drive this once innocent island downhill [ down the pall an as the saying aptly goes.

    A final saying a massive thank you to the sitting on their brains shitting Sinhala Buddhists you have given the keys to a rampaging psychotic lunatic to drive the nails into a coffin from where a reawakening will never happen even in one’s wildest dreams.

    Cheers, R. J.

    “We do know what has happened so far. We don’t know what is about to come. But those who came should leave from here for the next one to come, not blocking space. “

    There is special law purposely passed to keep him away from this election, says :” a candidate cannot be a dual citizen”. That law was passed by Ranil. But Ranil tried to stop his own party candidate Vaalaiththodam Jr in favor of this guy. King’s brother, who refused a membership for King in his personal Party, wants the PM position in his government. Now UNPyers wants Ranil to resign so Old King can have his way. Ranil would resign only after discussing matters with the King. King is an American citizen. His Brothers tried to keep him America, but America kept sending him to stand for election. Strangely, King won the election saying Ranil is signing the American defense contracts. In the last election, India and America worked to defeat his family’s kingdom. Now India wants him to visit there immediately. TNA wants to join the government (India told them?). But Tamils voted against him splitting Ceylon on the Tamil Eelam Borders.
    An extremist who has tattooed on his forehead as “HARD CORE BUDDHIST “, the man who conducted his inauguration in front of a tree, instead in front of the country, have ordered to remove the Maji Royals’ picture from Offices, a symbolic administrational gesture. Then he appointed two war criminals to senior defense posts, him as Minister and Gunaratna as secretary. Then he invited Tamils and Muslims come & join him & the Sinhala Buddhists on theirs journey.

    He was disliked even by his brothers who secured him this election by their powers. A 7 Million has voted him in. Does anybody know why these 7 Million voted to him?

      Sampathar and Abraham to bring TNA to join President Nande ..
      That is Balphemy , Mate, Is that the right word.

      Will the first Tamil Prez Candidate ever ,Sivalingam tick it?..After Siva gave extra 13 Ds to Sampathar to add on to the Hindian 13A as soon as Nande put his hand up ?.

      And told the Tamils to vote for Keselwatta Kid to stop a Sinahala Man becoming the President

      What about the 6000 Jaffan Inhabiatnts who voted for Siva,

      Not only Madurai , I thought the Hindians in Delhi also hated Nandseana.
      And Nandasen hasn’t been even to Lumbini on Pilgrimage?.

      Has Modi changed his mind after annexing Kashmir to plead Nandsen ato visit him before the Manchurian President?..

      BTW that Vote Map is fascinating . Isn’t it Mally.?..

      So he can keep the Dalits away and do his stand up jokes in Kotte to make his Loyal Supporters the Elite , Anglicans and the Vellalas happy.

      Poor Keselwatta Kid . He didn’ t wait until Dr Ranil got his Cell Phone.

    What a great speech from a Man who has runs on the Board doing things which other Politicians both Local and Overseas told our inhabs that couldn’t be done..

    Unlike the so called great Yahapalan Inaugural Speeches from both ex Presodent and his PM where they started with promises to
    *Shut the Departure Gates at the BIA.
    *Round up all the Cheats and Robbers from the preceding Government ,
    *Bring their Stolen wealth back by special courier to give us Good Governanace
    *Round Up all the War Heroes,
    *Establish Special Ex press Courts with imported Judges to try them

    And of course give VW Assembly Jobs, to Dalits and Nanos to Middle Classes.-

    In contrast, President Nande was all about fulfilling the Promise in his Election Manifesto, like
    * Restoring Security of the Nation and its inhabitants,
    * Restoring Economic Health of the country,
    * Lookig after not only the 7 Million Inhbas who crossed his Box.
    But also all the rest who didn’t put the cross in his Box.including the people who were pasting Mud Posters in Public Places and even the bullies who were threatening Nande to drag him before the Courts even if Nande scored.

    We know My3 Sira v acated the office 3 days before hand .
    But unlike last time when Dr Ranil and his mates said bad things about Rajapaksa not leaving the Pez Palace until they told him to do so, Nandasena didn’t even mention the word PM in his whole speech.

    And not a word about Bond Scams , Robbing Government Money and Lands, and even Terrorists who bombed the Catholic Church.
    How cool is that?.

      Why should they behave any differently than what has been established norm since 1956?
