Parliament Passed National Budget – No Crossovers From Govt

152 members of the parliament voted in favour to pass the National Budget for the next financial year. 57 members voted against the budget. Among the notable absentees were a number of MPs including Minister Sumeda Jayasena and the common presidential candidate Maithripala Sirisena, MP Rajitha Senaratne, MP Arjuna Ranatunaga and JHU MPs. No crossovers to opposition  took place as speculated by a section of media.

    What was the total budget for this development? Please tell me, what the sources are for these funds to pay trillions of rupees for Ministers, Deputy Ministers, Ministers with no portfolios, Project Ministers, MPs Monitoring Ministries, MPs, Provincial Council and other Local Council representatives, etc.

      So, Chandrika is not Bandaranayake’s daughter anymore?
      (Because she had told Ranil that if she didnot defeat the budget she would not be Bandaranayaka’s daughter!).

      We always believed that a man named Duncan de Alwis used to hang around at Rosmead Place when old SWRD Banda was Prime Minister. She may have known all the time.

    Would be ‘cross overs’ voted for the budget so that they can exist without penury and with the perks till election day.
    The defections will commence shortly – but the threats will have to be braved by defectors.

    That is because the President, Hon. Percy Mahendra Ebola Rajapaksha openly said that he has piles.

      “That is because the President, Hon.Percy Mahendra Ebola Rajapaksha openly said that he has piles.”

      This was confirmed by Second Lady, Paba!

    The rats in our Parliament, like political rats everywhere, may have decided to adopt a “wait and see” policy between now and Jan/2015 in the hope there will come their way some juicy money deals not to “jump”
    That is the quality of rogues that now go to Parliament. That breed of honourable men like the Amarasuriyas of the South, MD Banda, UB Wanninayake, SJV Chelvanayakam, Amirthalingam, Sivasithamparam, Dudley S, SWRD and the like is a thing of the past. Now the determinant factors to get into Parliament are those criminals, drug-traffickers, brothel owners, political wheeler-dealers and the like who control mobs and who have those army deserters with weapons in their pay roll. Rent-a-Mob has become a lucrative trade now and the trade will have a rollicking time between now and election day. That is why you have men like Kudu Mervin, Heroin Duminda, Sajin the pimp, Tiran A as Honourable MPs.

    Mother Lanka, when will you be saved from these scum of the earth.

    Ha ha ha Maithripala must have been washing plates in Aththanagala.

    Scared to face his lokka. And Chandrika nona can’t attend parliament for him. Nona might be even shoppping for Sunglasses in a Western capital anyway as it will be cheap this time of the year. The same Western capitals most of the godayas from Tissa Vitharana to Wimal Weerawansa are so badly missing. The godayas had enough of the racist insults they frequently get from the Chinese shopping trips. All this is so hilarious. Fun for free. Godaya professor ‘the best friend a man can ever have’ Rajiva is the cherry on the cake!

    Ha ha ha!

    As I predicted the opposition did NOT disrupt the budget.

    The opposition FEARED dissolution of parliament (that will RUIN their plans – 19 amendment, etc.) AND the possibility of NOT having a BUDGET to run the country IF they win.

    But don’t mistake this for support for MR.

    HIDDEN opposition supporters are MORE dangerous than KNOWN ones.

    Jayawewa … the 2015 BUDGET sailed effortlessly through the Parliament today!

    Therefore, since the budget was NOT DEFEATED, we won’t call her the daghter of a Bandaranaike; so, whose daughter is she? Really, I mean?

    Given that many of her DISGRACEFUL actions CONFIRM that she cannot be the true daughter of her alleged REVERED PATRIOTIC parents SWRD and Sirimavo Bandaranaike, has she accidentally revealed something we didn’t know about her parentage?

    Ha! Ha! … the election gaffes continue, with more rollicking fun in the offing!

    This clearly demonstrates her STUPIDITY; she should never make predictions about things that are so much beyond her control!

    Those, like Maithripala Sirisena, who trust her word and ability to deliver and place their necks under the guillotine, are CONGENITAL BOORUWAS as well; lack GOOD JUDGMENT and are UNFIT to man the helm of the nation as President!

    Begone, FOOLS!

    “Jayawewa … the 2015 BUDGET sailed effortlessly through the Parliament today!”

    Not quite.

    Count down started on 21 November 2014.

    Another 45 days to the big day.

    MR may have to sneak out of Temple Trees quietly through back door onto Alvis place into a waiting armoured vehicle, straight to Colombo harbour board Chinese nuclear submarine off to INS Varsha Nuclear Submarine base in Rambilli, meet the Chief Minister of Sri Lanka’s short lived North Eastern Provincial Council, Mr. A. Varatharaja Perumal in Ajmer, Rajastan live with him happily ever after.

    Hindians will not let him down.

    However MR might need domestic help.
