      This can happen anyone. ALso on the developed EUROPE.

      Just picking the kind of attacks to compare them with those of the former Regime must not be done since people remain hallozinated by the magical lies spread by Rajaakshe MEDIA units.

            Not okay, but to make that a big issue is not okay.

            We had days, your god father toy pistol mayers behaved as if Ruanda men chased with swodes after theiir tutsi folks. So the times are now changed. Even you stay on licking the balls of Raja has the same freedom of expression, as I as Good governance promoter myself enjoy. That is the greater difference, but you guys will never change – that is certainity. Born idiots will die as idiots. NOthing can change your thoughts. Good luck.

              Not acceptable. Politicians must behave impeccably on and off public view. They MUST set a good example to rest of us how to behave under pressure. Just because the politicians of MR regime were demons, there is no need for politicians of the present regime or those allied to it to behave only slightly better than a demon. No excuses what so ever, and especially if he was a Royalist then it proves what sort of riff raff and goons that Royal College has been producing. Police MUST enforce the law, arrest this criminal element and deal with him, and set an example to all other of similar traits.

            Get beaten was common in MR days.

            You stayed both ends sealed off.
            So did Ministers.
            Today, some guys behave this way will surely be taught lessions by the system already restored by cultured men in power.

            But at the time bitches sons were in the position, criminals were promoted on broad light. You guys went on played the housanas for the them on and on. Remember ?

          Donald Trump is urging his supporters to attack fellow republicans.

          if the candidate for the next most powerful person on earth can resort to such vulgarism….

          ….the world is doomed

            “Donald Trump is urging his supporters to attack fellow republicans.”

            Mahinda Rajapaksa is attacking Yahapalanaya. Yahapalanaya is attacking those who question Yahapalanaya.

            Maveeran Velupillai Prapakaran is Attacking other Thamilss and Tamil Groups…

            It is called Self-Interest and Hegemony.

    These are single cases – if anyone may make efforts to compare the kind of acts to mitigate the levels of all kind of harm being continued by Joint opposition will see it soon that there will be no space left idiots of any kind to behave that way. Today law and order is powerful as no times before. Rajakashes will be marginalized to the very same manner as LTTERs have been (wthin the country).

    Dear CT Editor,
    Seems your once esteemed journal is running out of news worthy articles and headlines than to target Royalist, their College events, their Alumni, their personal lives and Yahapalanaya. Why not rename the “Colombo Telegraph to the modern day “LIE FACTORY” or “Royal and Yahapalanaya bashers”? Couldn’t you use the tools and talents of investigative journalism to uncover the truth and help solve the mystery, cover-up, conspiracy and murders of the innocent victims such as the great Mr. Lasantha (Editor of Sunday Leader), the late Mr. Ekneliyagoda, Mr. Thajudeen and many others? When did the CT detract from your journalistic etiquette and mission statement “IN JOURNALISM TRUTH IS A PROCESS”? How many times can one “LIE” and get away before being castigated as a compulsive lying machine by breaching journalistic morality, ethics, truth and etiquette? Your CT articles are more apt to make headlines in the police blotter or a daily gossip column in the “Kallaa Path’thara” (Jungle Tabloids) in Sinhala. Good luck to the CT in your new found tabloid journalism for those in the gutter. Keep up the good work and spice those in the ghettos with your CT superlatives with words in your vocabulary like “Fuck”, “Fucking”, “Fuckers”. Thankfully, my Alma Mater instilled in me to uphold the truth and stand for justice and to differentiating the “ART” and science in journalism from the “FART” of journalism as do the Colombo Telegraph.

      Well said Gemba once again, The cat is out of the bag CT’s target is ROYAL COLLEGE Colombo.
      Does CT think the people who read column are “kondayas”. Attacks against Royal seem to be motivated by some form of jealousy. Royal has been in existence for over 175 years and no type of journalism presently being meted out by CT can bring this great institution to its knees.Royalists love their College and will defend it from any who are pursuing a course hoping its red bricked walls will crumble down

      CT what really happened to you for this downgrade?Please rise up from the quagmire you have fallen into,clean up the mud and turn a new leaf to bring back some semblance of decor to the noble profession of honest and dignified journalism so that we could recommend our off springs to venture into your site.
      Old boys of schools like St.Thomas,Trinity,St.Joseph,St Peters,Wesley,Ananda,Zahira too will not condone your tirade against Royal even though they have their differences they also have their gentlemanly understanding. Their rivalry is of a friendly nature and not of deep enmity.

    He should face the ‘independent judiciary’ now that he is facing the ‘impartial media’ – both of which he referred to, earlier.

    Obviously there were scores of things that happened for the last 14 months but Mahinda Rajapaksa used almost every incident to score a quick run or a sixer.

    This boy Harshana appears to have replaced the hyena of MR’s regime: Sajin Vaas who attacked Dr Nonis in NY. However this boy Harshana’s incident is another sixer for MR who has strategically kept a safe distance from trouble-makers like Sajin during this ‘Big Match’.

    At the recent Hyde Park rally MR scored a century: he said “I don’t understand what the big problem is, if I took loans on the sly and there is no record, then they (Ranil-My3 duo) don’t even have to pay it back, so why are they screaming about it if there is no record of such transactions, which means then they don’t have to pay it back,” he declared amidst loud cheering.

      Ruwan, the very same folks would not be deceived twice .. that is for sure.

      This is valid for MR too.

      He is now a spent source.

      Mantra of war victory is the history to this date.

      That mantra has no validity in law bound society anymore.
      When people are learnt to respect laws, the days where they were not compelled to do so – will automatically be remembered. Then the hatred against Mahinda will grow while the love towards law bound society/system will take ground. This is will be the reality in the days to come, I am not sumanadasa the modaya from Galle to predict so, but being on a western soil we pulse it. The law is equal to all and sundry will be the case ascending from 08th Jan 2015. My3 and Ranil will not be cheated by cheap tactics. They are both pragmatic leaders that see beyond horison. Mattala airport and Hambantota harbor were the giat projects that have been made to take ground, but on a long run, the folks will get it that were the major burden of today cost of living problems. Gawky folks will not stay open their moouths the way they have been anymore. They will be given rights to see it right soon. That will be the reality jAYAWEWA

    All perverts of Royal college are entering the Parliament through UNP ticket . UNP is in power not because it’s leader has any supra power but due to the defective MR regime and whilst at it, the UNPs role is highly precarious . Ranil can be at any time get booted out and the Govt. is rudderless (as per Kusal Perera). Dont blame CT for revealing fantabuous secrets of perverted Royalists. For pointing out a small mistake Harshana evicted me from the UNP Facebook youth group 2years ago . Diversity is not within their ambit . He Can not accommodate opposite views at all . However this ” After Father – Son Inheritance ” must vanish ! This will be a huge political clout in his future carrier . As no on ready to be amenable to get beaten by parliamentarians.

      telling Royal College they do behave as if they are no better than a product known to us -MERVIN silva. That is fully wrong.

      But who told you guys good bad during the last few years. No body. THere was no system to screen and filter good from bad. The society was in that day deteriorated reaching all unbearable levels to this date. If not to MR to whom we have to put the blame. Man was farting around kissing babies or standing by drug traffickers as no other leader did. Each every corners were visited by him to show off the manner how much he does. Even opening for a school toilet, the bugger spent lacks abusing his state transport. Today the most decent president, would not abuse a cent for his benefit. No dansala or extravaganzasa… since they have made themselves beofre ht people as EXEMPLARY.

    To Simon, Sama, Maralathoni, Kallathoni, et al:
    Here,my comment is not about MR’s mistakes for which the burden of proof is on My3, RW and other Yahapalakayas (and not on MR). He has been successfully batting and scoring many points during this big match between Yahapalanaya and the Joint Opposition.
    Harshana Rajakarunka’s assault reminds us of the gullible behavior of Mervyn Silva and Sajin Vass; the interesting fart is that both of them are now with your Yahapalanaya and not with MR. If you want add a few more famous figures (like SB et al). Here, MR scores another century while Yahapalana fielders are sleepwalking! If you guys don’t wake up and field well, this game is going to be extremely enjoyable and interesting! However, it might be deadly too for many Yahapalakayas since there are allegations against them piling up on a daily basis!
    Our question is very simple: (oh! this area has no power again and I lost what I had written about Simon, Sama, Maralathoni, and Kallathoni: you guys should thank the Electricity Board and the FIVE ministers who are in charge of the Electricity Board)!
    Tell me when you plan to think about developing the country?After 2020? Or else, are you planning to continue to assault the very people who elected you and wait for Lokh Saba to do it?

    Are you ready to write article about it ? Look at this MP Rajakaruna an Individual of course his some of behaviors yet to be matured, I did vote Yahapahalanaya Keys Maithri PresiPoll 2015 again voted Ranil at GEN ELECtion 2015,

    we were noticing You didn’t frame the MP or Individual, you targets A school also entire government, Remember Harshana Rajakaruna just an single individual candidate who won from Gampaha District that doesn’t stands entire Yahapahalanaya responsible for his mistake……. go to prison gates or fort courts corridors spouse of prisoners or parents of them educate you how Law deals individuals…… sometimes you must ready to tolerate their slang……

      If CT is dumb, you should leave them – it is up to you to choose the intelligent media forums.

      I really dont think those who support Rajaakshe men can ever be intelligent guys.

      Please change your punnaku brand today itself – that can save your life for sure.
