Ranil Demands Rajapaksa Unblock Web Sites

Blocking websites like Colombo Telegraph clearly shows the increasing authoritarian tendencies of the Rajapaksa regime, the leader of the opposition Ranil Wickremesinghe told ColomboTelegraph.

Condemning Rajapaksa regime’s move to block websites, the UNP leader Wickremesinghe said; “The degree of censorship in Sri Lanka has gone from bad to very grave.”

Speaking from the Center for International Studies at MIT, he said; “I will hold discussion with the party’s parliamentary group on the issue and will discuss what action we can take”

“Today, the World Press Freedom day, I demand Rajapaksa regime to stops its attacks on freedom of expression – on social media, the broadcast and print media to respect People’s Right to Know”, he added.

The Telecom Regulatory Commission has officially issued instructions to internet service providers to block Colombo Telegraph and other critical websites on its servers, with a warning that the companies are to maintain to customers that the inability to view the sites on the networks were merely ‘technical’ problems.

According to the annual index of media freedom, published on Wednesday by the US-based Freedom House, Sri Lanka’s score slipped by another 2 points, from 74 to 76, marking a dramatic decline of 20 points over the last decade.

Sri Lanka has slipped down the global rankings for freedom of the press as a result of increased harassment of both local and foreign journalists trying to cover protests and sensitive news stories, as well as attacks on printing and distribution channels for private media and blocks on web content, led to a more constricted space for independent news.

    Very good to see that UNP is waking up to raise some voice. But, if you are honest, make this plea in the Sri Lankan parliament first, and apologize for all past intimidation on journalists and censoring of local media when UNP was in power. Remember the era – “Baladariya visin kappa-harina ladi (censored by the competent authority)”? Promise not to return back to that under any circumstances nowhere else, but in the parliament.

      Dear Mr. Ranil Wickramasingha, UNP Leader and Leader of the Opposition.

      1. “Blocking websites like Colombo Telegraph clearly shows the increasing authoritarian tendencies of the Rajapaksa regime, the leader of the opposition Ranil Wickremesinghe told ColomboTelegraph.”

      “Condemning Rajapaksa regime’s move to block websites, the UNP leader Wickremesinghe said; “The degree of censorship in Sri Lanka has gone from bad to very grave.”

      This is not news. The question is what are you doing about it, and under what law are they preventing the people to get factual information?

      2.”Speaking from the Center for International Studies at MIT, he said; “I will hold discussion with the party’s parliamentary group on the issue and will discuss what action we can take”

      What are you going to do about it. They attacked UNP Parliamentarians. Why not read about the American Revolution, the Boston Team Party and other things. Do you want to be a chief Wimp of the Opposition? Ids that the position Mahinnda Rajapaksa assigned you?

      3. “Today, the World Press Freedom day, I demand Rajapaksa regime to stops its attacks on freedom of expression – on social media, the broadcast and print media to respect People’s Right to Know”, he added.”

      What a joke. The UNP parliamentarians were being attached.. The Churches.

      What a shame, what a shame, what a shame.

      Even the Native Veddah Aethho are distraught with these Paras.

            Agree. MIT performance was extraordinary.

            Unfortunately the UNP has not managed to market this excellent side of their leader to the massees.

            Leader himself has not done much about it. Leaving the vaccum wide open for corrupt elite of the SLFP & UNP.

            Cheers!

              Its not Ranil’s fault Ben Hurling.
              Its that we don’t understand him.
              What we easily absorb is some fake patriotic talks in Sinhala condemning the USA, UK, India & The West. Our people get an orgasm out of it while fighting for daily bread.
              Ranil cant cuddle pre arranged babies. Ranil cannot scream in filth in Sinhalese. He is a different breed. Unfortunately for us Ranil as a leader in future is very bleak because the majority are hoodwinked by Mara and clan.
              How many of us know what is going on in the Cricket Board today. Who is that Beer Nishantha guy? Who is Hulugalla? How come Malaka Silva owns a Porshe? Where Mara’s second son got the money to run a Sports Channel? What’s the loss of Srilankan Airlines let alone Mattala. Whats happening today inside Rupavahini? These are just A VERY FEW issues.
              Our people don’t even know what a Labour day is about (May 1st). They were thoroughly enjoying Dayasiri’s ‘RILA NATUM’ and Pavithra’s rear show. Thanks to this regime we are about to be labeled as a failed nation.

                Senarath, the easiest for this lazy society, is to blame RW. It is not RW who will be the loser, but the whole country in the end. Without blaming RW everyone should put their shoulder to the wheel and elect RW if this society want Law and Order and honesty established. Recently there was an unregistered posh expensive American vehicle driven that met with an accident, near Elvitigala Flats, running in to a three wheeler injuring the driver seriously. The STF had come and cleared the vehicle in half an hour and no media has reported to whom the expensive American vehicle belongs to? The owner and the driver at the time of the accident is none other than Rohitha Rajapaksa, President’s son. Where is Law and Order? Are these brats exempt from the Law? Why is the Public, anesthetized as if nothing has happened? How if something like this happened under RW’s rule?

                  “everyone should put their shoulder to the wheel”.

                  First of all UNP needs to free itself from infighting. Fractured opposition must put the country first.

                  Get that damn “Wheel” spinning. Get some momentum. The rest will follow.

                  Cheers!

                  PS: Quit blaming voters. Just a lousy excuse. Not going to help. Opposition must lead the charge. From the front. With bravery, courage, responsibility & intelligence.

            If that is his best what must his worst be like? Can’t the man wear a tie and smarten himself up a bit? Sit up straight instead of slouching in a chair waving his hands around?

          Thanks for the link.

          RW is confirming Para Affinity with South India.

          Towards, the end RW says, the Tamils are more at home at Colombo than at Chennai or Delhi.

          He also says, Sri Lankans are more at Home at Chennai or Kerala than at Delhi.

          Do you know why?

          Because all the Paras came from South India, and they feel at home in their Native Land South India.

          DNA in their bodies sis additional proof Lies and imaginations of Para-Monk Mahanama of Mahawansa notwithstanding.

          That’s Mr. Wickramasinghe. I doubt so much that even if put the entire cabinet of Mara together they wouldn’t compile a speech as such.
          Mara could only manage a few lines balancing it with wetting his lips nonstop swallowing half the sentence constantly and throwing his hands and legs at every directions.

            This [Edited out] Amaraya is working with his both hands standing on a roof top looking at the pimps in JVP and SLFP. srilal and srimal are providing lubrication. Had this interview been given to MARA or someone Amaraya et al are promoting they would hire flights and bring in hundreds of village mutts to fill in the room spending millions of rupees. This is the greatness of a scholarly statesman like RW. It is not his concern to show off the brawn instead of the brain. The few people who were present there was enough for him. Also the other channels of communication would relay the interview to reach the interested audiences. The uneducated villagers like Amaraya et al would not understand or benefit from such intellectual discourses. That is why this bloody fool Amaraya was highlighting the headcount and the empty seats and showed complete ignorance of the value of the content of the discourse. I do not know why the hell these pathetic parasites like Amaraya are living on this planet at all. Actually what is the purpose of your lives? You know when you rear a pig you derive some financial benefits like cleaning up garbage, meat etc. Now tell me a single benefit the world gets out of your life or a single good thing you have done to this world. You are a burden to this world. And surely you must be afraid of your next life too. What do you think your reincarnation would be like? Read some Buddhist books on hell and punishment to get a premonition of what is there in the store for you. Your hereafter shall be the extension and continuation of what you are today, with greater amplitude. Now go and light a coconut oil lamp for your hero AKD and JVP whose past reputation is littered with arson, bombs, sabotage, ruining the lives of a whole generation and having no political ideology except blaming every thing on capitalism.

              are you a blood relative of Dr Mervin silva ? Mervin also known to be getting really mad and explosive at those who criticize his God MR , i think you are the opposite number of Dr Mervin silva , well done , silva.

              PS: will Ranil be able to secure his own constituency at the next general election ? by the way do you know that Modawansa aka Wimal got more votes than twice your God cum permanent opposition leader Ranil could get at the last general election ? is that another achievement which you are proud of ?

              Why is that you sound to be begotted by RW (are u perhaps one of his close relatives)

              Give us any good reasons why RW behave most of the time as if he is one of ruling party man ?

              Today JVP bring good arguments in and out of the parliaments while UNP as usual seem need more time to even prepare for their arguments against the ruling thugs ?

                  RW is a decent politician as we all know him, but to appoint this kind of faecal eating pigs like SILVA to defend UNP right at the moment – is pathetic.

                  Srilal@, please check it clearly, he attacks as you say any one with his kind of abusive langague.
                  I thought he could be a good guy, just because he speaks English he has looked down upon almost everyone but not RW. This kind of people are found only in colombo vicinities… what a shame.

                  Really sad to see, this kind of kalakanniyas are worsening this wonderful forum.

I do not know why the hell these pathetic parasites like Amaraya are living on this planet at all. “

              Let’s clarify some issues here.

              1. The “uneducated villager Amaraya” was able to understand what RW had to say to three people at MIT in the Para-English Language.

              2. The “uneducated villager Amaraya” also understands that it was primarily the Age of Reason and the subsequent Technology Development that allowed Amaraya to know what RW had to say to an empty room.

              3. The “uneducated villager Amaraya” also undetstand that it was NOT the developments by the Para-Sinhala and Para-Tamils that allowed, him to be aware of the Para-Wars in the Land of the Native Veddah.

              4. The “uneducated villager Amaraya” akso understands that MaRa will be be able to express as well as RW because he talks with a potato on his mouth.

              5. The “uneducated villager Amaraya” still understands that the Para-Sinhala Masses need to ne informed and connected to the people, JVP is doing a better jib in this regard.

              RW and his UNP crew did not even hold a May Day Rally in Colombo.

              RW was giving a lecture in Para-English to to empty room at MIT.

              Silva, by the way Silva is not a Sinhala name. It is a Para-Portuguese name like the many other Para-names. Mahinda, is also a Para-name.

              In fact all the Sinhala and Tamil Paras came from India, The DNA in them is proof.

        Cut your crap and stop gnawing like a rat. First tell me what are YOU going to do about it as a citizen of Sri Lanka? You can’t do anything because everything is under the ponna police and the jack boot of the autocrat! When the law and order is non-existent no opposition in the world can do anything. Only option left is revolution on the street. Are you ready for it?

          Transition of power is unlikely to be democratic. Sad, but true.

          Uneducated & uncivilized rascals from Hambantota are planing a dynasty. They call it “providing stability to develop the nation”.

          They are damn serious about that project. As serious as VP was about forming an Ealam by limitless violence.

          Civil Disobedience might be one way to go. I don’t know.

          Opposition’s task is to lead the people from the front. That is not happening now.

          As we all know. Based on our reccent history. Sri Lanka has no shortage of brave people.

          Cheers!

          Yes. The Good Paras need to unite against the bad and ugly Paras and MaRas. Anyway, who want to do it, to bring Ranil W into power? It should be a different guy, a different leader. otherwise Deja Vu… seen it before.

          Start with the Posters. Learn from the JVP. They have a newspaper called Attha, The Truth.

          http://www.lankatruth.com/home/

          They will tear the posters down. identify the culprits who tear down the posters.

          Sent those who tear down posters one and final warming.

          Keep posting posters. More and more posters will stay up.

          Read about the American Revolution

          Read about the French Revolution

          Read about the Russian Revolution

          Read About the Turkish Revolution.

          The shot heard all over the word.

                This type of gobba katha would only occur in the mind of a born mutt like you. You are the type of fools who use battery acid instead of toilet paper and in the process lose both the asshole and nut bag.

                I would also include in your list Kangatta, Anura Senanayake, Duminda Silva, Mohan Pieris, Gunda (Gunadasa Amarasekara), Nalu Rogers and not forget Pavithra and Jina Madam.

                Now tell me who would you send to MIT, South Asian Parliamentary Group Meeting, to US, UK or any country in the world including Tamil Nadu to discuss important matters, to arrive at decisions and agreements, have deliberations at UN? Who will perform better, save the day better for Sri Lanka? Who will confer same recognition to the yellow robe, or the questionable war criminality allegeable and culpable character of SF? What is the political exposure and experience and reliability of both of them? Bloody jokers like you must not write in these forums wasting our time to respond to these nonsense. We all including me gave our vote to your hero SF in the Presidential Election and it is believed he won it at least by one vote. What happened next? The bugger was dragged by the neck down the road, dumped into a truck and put in a cage. We thought your military hero would demolish the Rajapaksha juggernaut with the help of the army where served his whole life and with whom he conquered the LTTE. Nothing transpired. He lost his pension too ultimately. Because of your idiocy you promote a pension-less pensioner to be your leader! Good for you, but not for me or for this country.

                In this very interview and discussion at MIT Ranil said and expressed this notion: “I forgot to mention, but don’t forget Singapore, they will definitely play a leading role in the region..” And the news had it that a multi billion Singaporean Company is stretching its legs and expanding into other areas of diversification including Africa! Just one day after the interview this happened! Can your Sobitha or SF match this? You are such an ignorant brat. Both Sobitha and SF are by profession, training, practice and exercise conditioned to act only in a particular angle and discipline. Sobitha can preach bana and SF can pull the trigger but both of them cannot find a solution to the ethnic problem. The yellow robe means bias, particular belief and idiosyncrasy, separation from the others. Such people cannot think objectively and impartially. Only a person with a global outlook like Ranil who can be logically be trusted to bring about that change and solution.

                  You argue well for Ranil.

                  However, yoour approach is hardly commendable. It is not in sync with gentle politics Ranil is trying to promote.

                  Something about your attitude reminds me nothing will change even if you put UNP in power.

                  Both UNP & SLFP have a high concentration of “we alone are right” & agressive individuals in their top echelons.

                  You represent an all too common dispaly of callous disregard & disrespect for fellow opponents even in opposition. Imagine the level of your utter arrogance when in power.

                  Do not forget while Ranil might be a nice guy, UNP has a track record of opression in this country that would give Hambantota clan run for their money.

                  Keep that in mind. Learn to be humble next time, before you open your mouth.

                  Cheers!

                    Even though i don’t agree with your views & comments most of the time , i admire your humility, modesty and gentleman’s qualities which you often display . isn’t it ironic that we all agreed & condemned MR’s dictatorial governance style day in day out , but at the same time , when it comes to opposition leader (RW) same people tend to follow different set of rules , in other words DJ type big talks ( i , me and myself know every thing and rest of the guys are just pack of imbeciles and time wasters ) often time we see how arrogant , disrespectful and dumb these RW defenders trying to be , in order to defend the indefensible , their one & only argument , out of 21 odd million people , RW is the messiah and only he has the vision & capabilities to resurrect SL from current political turmoil , isn’t this hilarious ? tell you the truth Ben , as for me there is no difference between Dr Mervin silva’s supporters and RW supporters , Dr Mervin silva’s supporters would do the exact same thing , if they were asked to defend their God…..

                    Ben Hurling,

                    I read over your comment yet again. I respect your gentlemanliness.

                    Often the lie and myth sowing rascals in the forums pushes my gravity center out of phase and then I tend to generalize matters. Sometimes I may have been harsh on you. I am sorry about that. And please do not worry, I would not in any way reflect myself in RW’s administration. Also I am not that fanatic besotted to die for a wrong cause and practices. Of course we lost due to the bad track record some of the UNPers created.

                    When RW took over there were all sorts of people, ideas, ideologies and pursuits in UNP. There existed several power concentrations which would have decisively acted to unsettle the power balance, hence there was no possibility RW could have controlled the whole gamut of issues and implications.

                    But that UNP is now dead and we are not going to revert. We give our backing to RW to take this country to the civilized world of politics. And in that effort if RW fails us we will fight against him also. That is my mission statement.

      I have to agree with Thrishantha.

      Press censorship is no Rajapassa invention in SL. UNP is just as good at this. Though Rajapassa is the best.

      Giving a statement from MIT will hardly alter anything on the ground in SL.

      Yet another lacklustre UNP reaction. Just like their 100m protest march against the infamous 18th amendment.

      Nevertheless I welcome it. It is better than nothing.

      Cheers!

        You are constituents of that unholy proverbial mix called “peretha thatuwa” which is an offering to evil spirits done by the superstitious villagers. I am not going to put Ben Hurling yet in that category but his “voter deitification and veneration” is questionable. He has a valid point there in that it is true that ultimately it is the voter who decides who will rule the country. But facts cannot be overlooked or negated. Just as the vote has the final say so does the able and capable who can personify the voter aspirations. Voters cannot get their aspirations fulfilled by electing an unsuitable, unqualified or merely a popular leader. SWRD, Sirima, CB, MR were all popular leaders but ultimately they dragged this country to today’s mess.

        Those in the peretha thatuwa will fight for their chosen evil spirit leader tooth and nail. That is what they are doing here promoting an “unknown leader”. They say they need a new leader but they can say who it is. If they are so serious what they must do is to reveal their leader and put forward arguments to defend their choice like I do to defend my choice. If they can prove their point ultimately I also will support their choice. At the moment what they are writing is garbage for pigs.

        I am criticized for being arrogant and all that by Ben Hurling. I am no fan of RW though I defend him. He does not know me exist either. To me he is the only one who sounds could make the change we need. He is not a rogue, an empty ranter, a conceit, or a self-aggrandizer but a simple, rule of law oriented, democracy believing politician with a vision to social justice, freedom, development and peace. This country faces a grave danger where after him there is no such type of next generation politicians who could take over from there. The known devil is better than the unknown god. Everybody is talking on the unknown God in the unknown leader.

          Silva ,

          i’m some what taken aback by your limited name callings this time though , usually you would not spare an animal , when you choose to address all anti Ranil commentators ,wonder what happened ?

          as to answer your question ,Ranil has been suppressing/blocking all the potential young blood entering in to the elite inner circle since has taken the leadership role , as a direct result of this selfish act , there is no immediate replacement as such , Better late than never , still there are quite number of promising novice , moderate UNPers there , name a few , Ajith P, Harsha , Eran , Hiran F , kabir , Sujeewa S, karu J , Ranjan et al.

          getting rid of Ranil and sajith from the UNP is the very first thing they must do if UNP were to come out of it’s current infighting, then UNP needs to have a proper constitution which will prevent having a dictatorship within the party in the future .

          if you want to know my answer for the current MR dictatorship replacement , pl scroll through few pages you will find my answer.

            “.. still there are quite number of promising novice , moderate UNPers there , name a few , Ajith P, Harsha , Eran , Hiran F , kabir , Sujeewa S, karu J , Ranjan et al. ..”

            Your choices speak volumes for your limited capacity. Who are you to determine UNP leader writing anonymously in a cyber forum as a nobody. UNP has a system and layout to change its leader. Some of the ones you named above are/were in that forum too. There is no system in UNP of electing its leader just because some nobody is yelling out there from a roof top. No wonder you write this type of things out of your ignorance about UNP. Who do you think you are to propose those names while none of them wanted to be what you propose except KJ. Sujeewa Serasinghe is a traitor waiting to be sold. KJ! Hah! Get your brain checked. How many times did he frog leaped or bungled? You have a knack of bungling the simple things. After all KJ is the Chairman of the Leadership council and he has to perform and show the results. I am writing with restrain here because I see your ulterior motive creating a weak opposition headed by a compromised weak leader. Just imagine that you just entered the animal park at Dehiwala!

                Can you cite the UNP constitutional provision which stipulates the statutory right of a Sri Lankan passport holder having the right for a vote at electing UNP leader? Now you would try to escape saying you are merely criticizing. But what you do is not criticizing but wholesale conspiracy by mud slinging, misinformation spreading, misrepresenting and biased and callous facts distortion.

                  for your information , unlike other blind followers i’m not worshiping any bloody politicians , i’ll criticize if and when i see it right , if any of lackeys/stooges/beneficiaries get mixed up criticism with mud slinging , bad luck , learn to live with it !

                  PS : Ranil is the biggest curse after MR for sri lankan people.

                      To start off I hardly pay any attention to any of your filth/rubbish mate , as for me you are another K.A Sumanasekara, jim softy , Abhya et al type lunatics whose main job is coughing for MR day in day out , I hardly read or response to any of their utter rubbish , so do to your comments , first get that to your head , if you have one ( pl remember i didn’t initiate this conversation either , you’re the one who put a direct comment to me )!i consider you are a pure waste of time !!!!!

                      “Edited out] sira, come out from under the bed and answer my question!”

                      So according to your imaginary interpreted world , I have been hiding just because I couldn’t answer your $ 640000000000000 question ? let me tell this to you , I wish I could see you personally and settle the matter then and there rather than hiding from a coward like you ! as I said last time , only cowards and arrogant dim wits think their phony threats and raw filth can stop exposing “Ra Daniel Daval Migel Ranil’s “antics , big mistake , Ranil has made enough enemies and almost all the media (i.e Sirasa , Tiran Alles’Media , Upali group et al )doing it free of charge 24×7 basis , your stupid arrogant solitary veil attempt will only appreciate by the other handful same paid lunatics , before your dumb proposal of Ranil’s candidacy for the presidential election , just tell , can he beat Wimal (Modawansa) at the next general election of the UNP strong hold of western province ? since you are being paid to cough for this loser , you must know the last general election results of Ranil’s and wimal’s ( preferential votes ), can you post it here , so that you can help in refreshing other’s memories thereby convincing others to support for Ranil’s 3rd successive empty attempt !!!

                      ““Can you cite the UNP constitutional provision which stipulates the statutory right of a Sri Lankan passport holder having the right for a vote at electing UNP leader?””

                      In your illusionary dream world you pretend that you have asked an extremely smart question thereby made me to disappear from the face of the earth ! my suspicion made it clear ,after reading your stupid ,numerous ,repeated comments ! your retarded mentality allows you to think that every body is in the same mental state as you are ! listen , your stupid question didn’t deserve a response from me , that ‘s why I just ignored , but you have taken it for granted and started considering as a triumph , what a dim wit ?
                      Who says “UNP constitutional provision which stipulates the statutory right of a Sri Lankan passport holder having the right for a vote at electing UNP leader?” ,isn’t this yet another concocted fabrication of a Ranil’s paid stooge’s imagination ? is there any thing to answer there ? wasn’t this a manipulated hypothetical question ? why are you insisting me to comment on a nonexistent clause ! UNP is not Ranil’s or your bloody private property to abuse as you wish , UNP is the official opposition party and every single Srilankan citizen has the right vote/not to vote for UNP as they wish ,after all UNP affairs is every bodies business as opposition leader’s and all other MP’s salaries & other perks are being paid by srilankan Tax payers , few of Ranil’s paid low life scum bags think they have exclusive right to comment & sing hosannas to safeguard their illusion leader ! big mistake , Ranil has been castigated as a loser and he is a spent force , no amount of your empty bravados/rhetoric’s/filths will ever rejuvenate this permanent loser and don’t be surprised if no body is responding to your tirades, think why I wouldn’t I respond to K.A sumanasekara, Jim softy, Abhaya et al ?

                      “.. let me tell this to you , I wish I could see you personally and settle the matter then and there rather than hiding from a coward like you !>>”!#%?

                      Very brave, I am shivering in fear, hah!! Be careful lest you knock your empty head against the 2×4 frame of the bed under which you are hiding. now apply some Siddhalepa on to your knees and elbows, they must be aching very badly. Look at the kilometers long nonsense you have dribbled to my simple question. I am still waiting for your answer to my question.

                      And you have been joined by peretha thatuwa, another scum bug like you. Nice pair and suits each other very well. Ieal Gon Bana to plough the paddy fields of Rogue King Chandrika. You won’t get a chance though because the drunkard woman has sold almost all the lands now.

                      Moda Uura, bear this your muck filled head that I have no appetite for pimps or pigs like peretha thatuwa, again very nice and fitting name voluntarily chosen out of billons of names to announce his real ill-bred character and shanty-rooted breeding.

                      The peretha joduwa while scratching each other’s scum-backs throws a stupid question at me so thrillingly that they nearly posted their nut butter into the forum! The pair of donkeys must be feeling as if they launched a ballistic missile at me! hah!!! Usually I am not interested in dealing with scum bugs like srilal or malaperethayo like peretha thatuwa but this time thought of wasting few minutes out of mercy for the condemned-to-ignorance pair:

                      From the very beginning RW maintained that the impeachment must be done according to the provisions of the constitution, that a fair trial must be conducted.

                      When the illegal impeachment debate was conducted he did not attended because an illegal process must not be given legitimacy by providing legitimate presence.

                      SB was in fact not a Bodisathwa as this pair of lunatics claim. She and MARA were pals and had underhand dealings and understandings. MARA used her to manipulate judiciary to the detriment of UNP. Case after case was filed against UNP preventing it from taking action against the frogs who crossed over or breached party establishment code. Making her husband Chairman was part of these happy dealings and political marriage. Things went sour only when she realized MARA used her to his advantage undermining her career. You mode monkeys blame RW for the passage of 18A but it is this CJ bitch who did it for MARA. Mongul fuckers like you must not write the things you know nothing of.

                      The other point that RW was not on her side is that she was in fact at fault to some of the allegations. The evasion of tax payment was in fact a valid allegation. There were others too. So how can RW appear for a wrongdoer? Do you think RW should be the same criminal accomplice as Chandrika or MARA who sets free all the convicted criminals from rapist to murderer?

                      There are other reasons too but I don’t go into those because even the above valid points would be challenged and negated by mental retards like you. I wrote this answer not to that pair of buffalos but to any other person who may have followed the dialogue.

                      Now get lost into the cesspit where you campaign to enthrone a moribund Chaura Queen.

                      Oh,at last sigh of relief , there you are with full of convincing answers , way to go silva ,let me congratulate you on your outstanding performances and i’m sure Ranil must be extremely happy with your excellent oratory and vocabulary skills and the manner in which you had been presenting yourself as a responsible adult with matching intellectual skills before this very forum , thanks to you silva , now i’m more than convinced , that Ranil is the one and only perfect candidate who can beat MR at the forthcoming presidential election.

                      so , forget all these complicated , confusing terms like ” impeachment , 18 th Amendment , Latimer house (oops what house ?), sovereignty , democracy BS ” let’s talk some thing you and i clearly understand , shall we ?

                      before going any further silva , i’ve this very insignificant , irrelevant little question bugging me , so i thought to ask & get it clear from you silva , is it true that Wimal aka Modawansa beat Ranil at the UNP stronghold of western province ? my understanding was , unlike other underdeveloped provinces , western province is/was full of well informed army of voters and they all ways use their heads before voting , but on the contrary ill educated , third grade, foul mouthed con artist Modawansa managed to convincingly beat decent , well educated , gentleman Ranil at the last general election ! what has happened ? pardon my bird brain doesn’t allow me to think rationally here , if Ranil is going to contest very popular MR and that election is going to be from 70 % of rural, ill informed masses , how on earth is he going to convince the MR worshiping devotees to vote for him ( Ranil is a Tiger supporter for them , you know) over their savior cum “Aadambara piya”? these are well beyond my capacity silva , so please help us here , no hard feelings silva !

                      Silva should be either a drag queen or socially isolated person to be this cynical. Transexuals of this nature hate entire humanity for unknown reasons.
                      I wish you a sooner recovery, Mr Silva:)

                      Readers, please check yourself closely, Silva has only on attacking anyone that would go against RW – as all abusive words that permit his vocabulary. This kind of people are the curse for srilanken society. RW had very many chances to show that he could a great leader, but the guy did not make use of any of the chances.
                      Many respect him, but that will not be sufficient to defeat the maraurders in power.

                      srilal,

                      “..but on the contrary ill educated , third grade, foul mouthed con artist Modawansa managed to convincingly beat decent , well educated , gentleman Ranil at the last general election ! what has happened ? pardon my bird brain doesn’t allow me to think rationally here,..”

                      srilal, machang, look at and analyze the above statement which I consider a golden window into the mass psychology of the Sri Lankan voter. Unfortunately this society has undergone or rather made to undergo general semantics and dialectical degradation. The ruins in your channel of perception says: “..Modawansa beat decent Ranil..!” Don’t you see how this lays bare a whole psychological lacuna, flaw and contradiction? In your heart, mind, thought and etymologically you say “Ranil is decent” and “Modawansa is the opposite”. But throughout these forums you et al go on to express, germinate and disseminate the notion, “Ranil is the curse and obstacle”! Why don’t you pause for a moment and not question, “what has happened to my senses, we demonize and condemn a person in an illogical manner, we have been self-contradictory?”

                      If you take the pain to look at your own brain and heart you will realize the raison detre for the existence of this duality and flawed perception is a calculated campaign of the implementation of Goebbels theory. The Goebbels has invaded the minds of a large section of minds. Like computer viruses this is a thought process and dialectics contracting virus and the danger is that the carrier does not accept the fact. If you go through these forums you will notice that many are spreading this virus using various names-but I guess it is one or two persons using many names. If you analyze how the human mind works, it operates on thought, its modus operandi is the thought and this is exactly where the virus is designed and aimed at! The vulnerability lies in the fact that we sparingly use our reason when these viruses invade us. A simple example, why do those people used huge amounts on adverting-buy this, buy this, this is better, why apply mineral oil? You know the whole story that goes. The Rajapakshas with the steamrolling EP juggernaut, the state apparatus, compromised media, sold out scribes, con artists, con clergies and con everybody armed with an army of con-virus contracted con-subject all of whom now acting as the vassals of con Rajapakshas are unleashing a tornado of con-invasion of our minds. Who can withstand it? Can you face reality and truth and come up with truth and reality?

                      As for those “golden statements” yes they raise a laughter in me too when I go over them again, sometimes we need some nut and cunt artistry and poetry to feel good about our blows. But at the end of the day there has to be some substance that we can assimilate from the exchange.

                      As for your direct questions, I hope you may have yourself answered them by now. Anyways I will try to answer it later on.

                      “..i’wll go along with your choice of Ranil as the presidential candidate , please tell me and convince other millions of fellow dumb Srilankan voters , how Ranil is going to beat very popular incumbent president MR ?..”

                      “..is it true that Wimal aka Modawansa beat Ranil at the UNP stronghold of western province ? .., unlike other underdeveloped provinces , western province is/was full of well informed army of voters and they all ways use their heads before voting , but on the contrary ill educated , third grade, foul mouthed con artist Modawansa managed to convincingly beat decent , well educated , gentleman Ranil at the last general election ! what has happened ? .. if Ranil is going to contest very popular MR and that election is going to be from 70 % of rural, ill informed masses , how on earth is he going to convince the MR worshiping devotees to vote for him ( Ranil is a Tiger supporter for them , you know) over their savior cum “Aadambara piya”? ..”

                      This is a dilemma for the moment. And for the reasons stated in my last post ill-informed rural masses have created a bad impression in them about RW. And nowhere did I claim RW should be the presidential candidate. This whole issue revolves around the suppression of facts and sowing of lies by the criminal media.

                      Few examples on how this works: The nurses’ strike was a direct outcome of the government’s bungling, complicating and irresponsibility. But what did the media vassals open their lie rags to utter by the rogue president-the strike was a result of internal problems of trade unions!? And the media opened their rags for voice cuts of various apologists of the regime criticizing, blaming and deaminizing the nurses and highlighting the pain and misery of the patients. Only after few days of this drama, there you are, the patients were threatening nurses that if something happened to their loved ones they would retaliate severely! How come it that the patents began to think that the nurses have no rights in their profession or life? Since when did patients begin to believe nurses are their vassals? Did we see a single moderate voice or patient say, “look, it appears that they have a problem that requires government mediation and solution”? No!

                      And yet again we saw how the CGR demand was bulldozed by MARA’s army of pimp police and no media rag was bothered about the rights of the workers, passengers or the beaten.

                      The Chief Prelates of various chapters were groaning in ass pain about Casino Bill but MARA issued car permits to the whole paradigm of upcountry temples and shut their mouths! MARA virtually bought Buddhism and the prelates definitely sold it for a penny! Now, these Buddhists chant these five precepts and all those pirith and such things like a manthra, day in and day out, claiming that they are real and proud Buddhists and identifying themselves with those virtues. Then where does this trade off of Buddhist virtues fit in within their sacred belief? Do we hear any media talk about that? Do we see any Buddhist shows concern about it? Or are we seeing the Buddhists carrying on as usual as though nothing happened, offering flowers, worshiping the “most venerable chief prelates”, offering alms and resolving to get rid of every evil qualities in them and attain pure nirvana?

                      Now this is the operation of media gimmickry. The regime doing everything they want under the cover and protection of a compromised and corrupt media. The “Ranilta Baha” myth too is a media gimmickry. But unfortunately those who are caught in it would not give their vote to RW which is the misfortune of this country and its people. And this is why there is this talk of a common candidate for the presidency. But the real issue is not the CC whose only function would be to dissolve EP within 3 months and then go for a general election. The issue is how to rally all the opposition parties around this common goal of abolition of EP. The only item in the agenda must be the abolition of EP and nothing else. Everything else has to be done after GE under a new government and constitution.

                      Now to your favorite choice CB for EP. You said 18A was illegal and even blamed RW for not doing enough to prevent its passage. Do I need write any further? If 18A is illegal, how do say CB’s running for the 3rd time is legal, because under the legal constitution EP cannot run beyond 2nd time? Now that is my logical answer. But apart from that, what are the real achievements of CB? She almost did nothing for the country and led the country to minus economy figures. She was associated with corruption and hair cutting. She also is physically handicapped and one eyed. She was perpetually late and an alcoholic. She could not even look after the lands that she inherited. She breached the promise of abolishing EP and used and misused the office. And when she left she entrusted the fate of this country to a rogue family like Rajapakshas knowing fully well how MARA swindled tsunami aids. What guarantee do we have that she can salvage this country today? The only plus point she has is she was not as bad as the rogue MARA. So your choice of CB is very much in question for me.

                      The EP is a position that is due to be abolished at the first chance reached and I don’t give a damned hoot about it. It can be done using any popular figure that can be lifted when election comes. What is important is the spread of this notion and rallying need of abolition and the establishment of the mechanism to do it. All the political parties have to support it. If any one deviates he is the most abhorrent traitor of the country. We saw one such traitor proposing the name of Vigneshwaran the other day. That was a calculated psychological game deployed by the regime to anesthetize the minds of the people so that MARA can retain his familial rule forever.

                      Finally, as for having a beer or something…too good to be true machang yet cheers for your sip when you do.

                      My whole argument was , that Ranil led opposition didn’t do enough to stop steam rolling the bill , that’s all !once it has been passed through by the 2/3 majority in the parliament , there is nothing much any can do about it, i haven’t said it’s illegal , only the manner in which they bulldozed the 18A was unethical !so there is no point splitting hairs on the issue now , as to CBK ‘s candidacy , i’m no fan of CBK either , i’ve stated this many a times , she is one of the worst presidents we have had in our recent history and there is nothing worthy of mentioning here about her , but under the prevailing current condition only CBK type Vatti Amma character can tap in to the majority of grass eating pseudo patriotic masses , not only she can gain most of the SL dumb asses votes but also splitting the SLFP/PA juggernaut in to half as well!!!

                      if CBK managed to beat MR , CBK knows her fate would only depends on abolishing the EP as promised , if not she knows the repetition of Ranil’s “clipping her wings ” or even an impeachment would be on the cards.

                      srilal,

                      “..please give a clear answer as to who is your preferred common presidential candidate who can beat MR ?..”

                      You know, there is an old saying, “frequently seen cock’s comb is whiter”. Also, you won’t show your trump cards to the competitor until the game is on. If you do, they will do everything to counter the attack. MARA will definitely buy or bury him/her. Remember what happened to Paba? The story goes she was dragged into a room while on her way to parliament for the first time in her life and, well, when she came out she had undergone complete metamorphosis and mararization! When you attack an opponent like MARA it has to be quick and decisive, and without any warning. The opposition of the regime will do well to announce the CC at the right time. The biggest ass pain of the regime now is this CC which is why they are publishing pictures of Vig, RW, CB in the same newspaper frame to brand the Tiger label on to them. If I say now the regime will use the interim time period to tinker the brains of the gullible people and impersonate quite a different picture on the whole issue to gain advantage for the familial rule.

                      So please do not worry about the CC but spread this message of the need to abolish the EP through a CC. Make people understand that the cause of their suffering is MARA who is misusing EP and therefore it must be terminated. That is all what is needed for the moment.

                      “..My whole argument was , that Ranil led opposition didn’t do enough to stop steam rolling the bill , that’s all !once it has been passed through by the 2/3 majority in the parliament , there is nothing much any can do about it,..”

                      The constitutionally legitimate way of removing CJ is through an impeachment. However flawed, biased, partial and corrupt the methodology and procedure adopted to impeach by the regime, no amount of street agitations would nullify the majority passed parliamentary impeachment resolution. On the contrary it will only enable and justify the regime to unleash its wicked machineries of suppression and assault on those protesters. Many would have been shot, wounded and caged. And even if resorted, it would not deter the Rajapakshas or impeachment abandoned. In a previous post I have mentioned other factors why RW did not stand with ousted CJ.

                      By the way, why don’t you turn your gun at, instead RW, those who voted for the impeachment, the legal fraternity who meekly surrendered themselves to Rajapakshas accepting the illegal act. Had they continued their protests throughout the country crippling the whole legal dispensation system the Rajapakshas would have still been running without looking back and without knowing what to do. It is not RW who spoiled a golden opportunity to break the backbone of the Rajapakshas but these very traitors in the legal system, the judges, lawyers et al. It is they who possessed the island wide, functioning and critically important state apparatus to run the administrative business of the government. Any prolonged breakdown of it would have rendered the regime non-functional. And why don’t you address these issues? Rajapakashas are appointing pimps to the highest echelons of judiciary but none of them are emitting a whisper about it. The doctors, the police, army, con artists and others are still betraying the people and getting sold to Rajapakshas for a car permit, laptop or something. Why not talk on these issues?

                      Please get your orientations and priorities right. A wrong question cannot elicit a correct answer. Ask correct questions and direct your energies at the root causes of the problems and not at irrelevant peripheral matters.

                      “.. but under the prevailing current condition only CBK type Vatti Amma character can tap in to the majority of grass eating pseudo patriotic masses , not only she can gain most of the SL dumb asses votes but also splitting the SLFP/PA juggernaut in to half as well!!!..”

                      Your argument has merits. Yet no one can say for sure how the grass eating dumb asses in this country cast their votes. See how they wholesale voted for Paba, Dayasoriya and Hirunikar. What goes through their minds no one can say.

                      Gaining most of dumb ass votes and splitting SLFP/PA using CB is a good proposal. Then if UNP supports her and with the ass votes and with the help of the split she might win. But who can trust her? Who will be the other key players in the current regime who will get involved after the win? She already has a bad track record of dishonesty. Also, there would be a section of UNPers who will not vote for her. These and other factors would have to be considered.

                      On the other hand what about a new candidate acceptable to all people in the country? If convincingly campaigned for, he can muster asses’ votes, Rajapaksha haters’ votes, UNP votes, change expecting peoples’ votes, minority votes etc. There the pros is that there will not be UNP absentee votes but the cons is how many SLFP/PA votes would be garnered is in doubt-will they not vote or go with the Rajapakshas has to be considered. In the final analysis it has to be considered too that in the minds of dumb asses the war victors still hold water. This is the single most important factor that prevents these assholes from using their brain rather than illusion in deciding who they would vote for.

                      A simple conversation illustrates how the dumb ass mentality works:

                      A worn out, malnourished, blank faced and SLFP looking betel leaf vassal dragged himself into a boutique in a suburb. He would ask for a bundle of beedi or something. While handing over the goods the Mudalali asked the betel leafer, “where are you going now?” The betel leafer in a moaning tone said, “there is only one place I can go now”. I realized what was going on inside the bugger’s mind and asked, “what is that place?” He would not reply so I insisted. He then vomited, “where else except the wooden box”. The SLFP betel leafer was sucking beedi but was dreaming of a wooden box to travel to his sordid destination. I quipped, “take that bugger along with you!” and when asked who was that I said, “Mahindaya!” The bugger buggered off silently and as he left the shop said, “Mahinda nathinam api ewarai (had it not been for Mahinda we would have been doomed)”! These dim wits who haven’t got a grain of rice inside their bellies and sucking beedi and haunted by the moribund thoughts of coffins and repentance about their sordid lives would still think they must perform their ultimate responsibility by giving their vote to the Rajapakshas! Who can break this social vicious circle haunting the minds of despicable fools in this country?

                      Silva ,

                      “Yet no one can say for sure how the grass eating dumb asses in this country cast their votes. See how they wholesale voted for Paba, Dayasoriya and Hirunikar. What goes through their minds no one can say.”

                      CBK is the ideal icon for the grass/Beatles eating dumb asses of SL , still there is a significant section of the society who worships Bandaranayakes and believes only she can rescue Srilanka from the current turmoil.

                      “But who can trust her? Who will be the other key players in the current regime who will get involved after the win? She already has a bad track record of dishonesty. Also, there would be a section of UNPers who will not vote for her. These and other factors would have to be considered.”

                      i’ve already partially answered the above question , in SL all the politicians are political animals , no body trust CBK ,but every body knows she is the only who can take MR head on , so this a catch 22 situation , both parties need each other for their own survival , CBK knows it so does the opposition , this is where careful planning and strategies come in to place , as UNP is the single biggest opposition party in SL , they do have a bigger say in the process , if CBK tried to delay in abolishing the EP even by one day , whole parliament would stand as one and boycott/shut down the parliament from functioning , i’m sure there may be n number of ways to cripple the smooth functioning of parliament (impeaching her is a possibility)

                      ” In the final analysis it has to be considered too that in the minds of dumb asses the war victors still hold water. This is the single most important factor that prevents these assholes from using their brain rather than illusion in deciding who they would vote for.”

                      i couldn’t agree more with you , there will always be couple of millions dim wits in SL , who say MR save their sorry a…. from praba , those are die hard supporters/lackeys/stooges/parasites who think there will be no Srilanka after MR , no one should worry about those lunatics , what matters is the rest , especially those SLFP/PA supporters who are disillusioned with current military dictatorship ! when it comes to UNP , UNP needs to send a clear message to it’s voters as to why they opted for a CC , i’m sure , absolute Tamil majority would refrain from voting for MR so does the Muslim community , but when it comes to Muslim leaders , they need to take a clear stand as to which side of the fence they are going to sit , definitely not on the fence though !
                      Gen SF has the considerable chunk of vote base , so he must support CC (CBK) rather than attempting to contest by himself , finally JVP factor , JVP has a very rural/ young vote base at their command , Ven Sobitha Thero’s involvement could sway JVP’s last minute decision.

                      Hmm.. well, one could also argue why not do it now? These parliamentary creatures can do all those things even today and decimate the familial rule if they so wish. Perhaps CB would use the same steamroll as MARA and continue from there forgetting every promise as she did before and using the same parliament of pimps that are there today. So this risk factor has to be considered as well.

                      “..still there is a significant section of the society who worships Bandaranayakes and believes only she can rescue Srilanka from the current turmoil..”

                      Well, they were under Bs and CB for eons and one could ask and argue with them how many of their aspirations materialized under Bs or CB and what the use of putting her again in the driver seat who repeatedly failed abandoned them. And the same argument could extend that it is UNP who ended Bandaranayakes beggars and queues era infested with hal polu, miris polu and every imaginable polu. Therefore I still prefer a new CC.

                    ” Ranil is the biggest curse after MR for sri lankan people”

                    This COULD be right.

                    People like me being out of the island keep asking as to why RW did not act vehemently at the time, SB impeachment saga was the best chance him to prove his abilities.

                    This Puka Sudda -Silva (inborn pinguththaraya) and the ilke he s been representing cant see it beyond. That is the reason why he keeps attacking anyone goes against RW.

                    See alone the TALK given to media being in Boston – there were almost very thin audience. If RW is the best leader as Silva and others repeat, many would have taken part to listen to his speech.

                      Readers, please check yourself closely, Sven Perera is only attacking RW or anyone who talks in support RW, using all the abusive words that his poor vocabulary and broken English permit. This Rilawa is judging everything by the head count he is still counting the head count of the village dogs to verify his paternal origin.

                      this may be true for any other candidate , but definitely not for CBK , there are a few good reasons behind it , first , all most all the SLFP are chandrika’s creations (Goloyos), it would be a really awkward situation for them to bash their former boss CBK day in day out ,and the other interesting aspect of the story is , most of them would know that she is going to win a landslide victory over MR , so very many of CBK’s goloyos would have to walk in an extremely tight rope , second aspect is , the whole country knows about CBK history (Thanks to Victor Ivan’s Bandit Queen etc) , there is nothing new which they can add to tarnish her image , in fact this would work in her favour , when Dayasiri was contesting , UNP had started a viscous mud slinging campaign against him , in the end all the negative campaign benefited him and he secured unprecedented no of preferential votes !

                      “The constitutionally legitimate way of removing CJ is through an impeachment.

                      no matter how hard you try to justify Ranil’s action , i would never buy it , period ! it was Ranil who indirectly supported the drama behind the scene , Ranil was busy hiding behind the “parliament was supreme ” BS , when the parliament was not , in fact MR has bought over every possible opposition MP to his advantage and undermined it’s very existence ,this is in record , don’t expect any body to believe what you trying to say here !

                      why would i blame others ,you should know better that, it’s opposition leader’s sole responsibility to manage/lead opposition affairs related work in the parliament , Ranil utterly failed to do his rightful duty and thereby he let down Opposition as well as the whole country , only handful of die hard Ranil supporters think otherwise , it’s no point blaming all other podyens if you can’t think rationally & logically. oh don’t worry i’m not asking you to change your mind about Ranil , i would be mad to do so

                      Srilal,

                      You say:

                      “..pl don’t tell me what to write or not to , i’m an independent person who has no strings attached to any person or any party,..”

                      And then you go on to say the following, and the whole of the rest of your writings’ tone and colour is associated with your CBK’s support and veneration:

                      “..this may be true for any other candidate , but definitely not for CBK , there are a few good reasons behind it , first , all most all the SLFP are chandrika’s creations..”

                      There are no more CBK’s or Bs creations in such large numbers as you mistakenly claim. For how long have the Bs in oblivion now? The young generation hardly know them. Take for example your own example Dayasori. He was nobody when in SLFP. Then UNP made him into somebody. Then he buggered off to betel leaf with UNP Elephant branded on to his back and won overwhelmingly. It is your poor calculation and reasoning ability that says betel leafers are predisposed to vote for “their men (SLFPers)”. How come then did Dayasory, Joniya, or the numerous UNP frogs obtained votes so massively if the betels are that particular and discriminate? By dumping a weak argument that negative and character tarnishing reputation and publicity such as Bandit Queeen would be beneficial you insult even the iota of wisdom left in the voter of present day, association of yourself with which lays bare the flawed pattern of your paradigm of misguided and run away thought process. I request you to gather wasted bits and pieces of yourself and adopt a more balanced and global outlook at looking at the issues. It is not the mission of the wise to cater to the banal, carnal and degrading mentality of the society. It is understood that dogs can eat our feces and quench their hunger, but do we promote it and do it on the road sides to feed them with it?

                      “..no matter how hard you try to justify Ranil’s action , i would never buy it , period ! it was Ranil who indirectly supported the drama behind the scene , Ranil was busy hiding behind the “parliament was supreme ” BS , when the parliament was not , in fact MR has bought over every possible opposition MP to his advantage and undermined it’s very existence ,this is in record , don’t expect any body to believe what you trying to say here!..”

                      Congratulations! You are a proud visionary of illusion and delusion! You are the mason, carpenter and plumber. You build the wall and walk right onto and against it and then ask me for the way forward and clear the obstacle! The general agreement is that neither the Legislature nor the Judiciary or the Executive is above anyone of them. If they did this whole concept of democratic governance fails and the system collapses. You know the three pillars and all that. My argument is it is the Constitution that is above the above trinity which specifies specific functions to each of the three arms of governance so that the trinity works with sanity, logic, legality and according to natural justice. Any action over a dispute has to approximate as far as possible to the ultimate benchmark that would be measured against by any civilized nation in the world. RW’s allusion that parliament was supreme was purely in the context of impeachment where the judiciary was on a collision course with legislature trying to nullify the legislature. RW’s statement has to be read and understood with the rest of expressions and actions resorted to by him where he clearly espoused for an impartial investigation of the allegations. You continue with your indefensible fanciful thought that RW did not do enough to prevent the impeachment. What do you mean by “enough”? Climb on to the rooftop of Geoffrey Bawa? And even if he did, will it to the trick while as you say MARA had bought every possible opposition MP plus on the face of the vote count of the countless pimp vassals in the parliament? Remember these parliamentary vassals are a mirror image of “grass/Beatles eating dumb asses of SL” that you often allude to and no justice or sensible output can be expected from these sold out pawns. At the most what RW would have achieved, if he did as you so frequently lament, was a media stunt that some of the newspaper rags would have used to boost their sale. It would have had no bearings or effect on the impeachment whatsoever.

                      But let me take the Trojan horse so painstakingly bigot by you to Panchikawatta and cannibalize it. You place such ultra-virus importance on impeachment of SB and suggest RW de facto sacrificed her on the altar of parliamentary justice and oppositional leadership. Why? The Trojan operates multi-pronged in the forums using various pseudonyms usually replicating new ones but ascribing specific characters and specific duties and missions. The regime is suffering from CC phobia and the subsequent and ultimate culpability and punishment phobias under a completely new government. As a last resort they may hope to escape to “our-men-ness” patronized by common SLFP identity and affinity under CB’s presidency and the cover, exempt and impunity forthcoming under her. Just as the Victor Ivons’s adjective qualifies her and her treacherous past factually materialized she could breach all the pre-election promises and all her “Goloyos” would join the party and have the SL cake for another period of…. who knows! And, congratulations! You earn the double Grammy Award too. By creating repulsion and strife between a perspective CC in SB and main opposition leader who has the biggest opposition vote base in the country you can try to eliminate the defeat chances of incumbent and improve same of CC!

                      “..Had they continued their protests throughout the country crippling the whole legal dispensation system the Rajapakshas would have still been running without looking back and without knowing what to do….” “..why would i blame others ,you should know better that, it’s opposition leader’s sole responsibility to manage/lead opposition affairs related work in the parliament , Ranil utterly failed to do his rightful duty and thereby he let down Opposition as well as the whole country,..”

                      What da.., Since when do you say lawyers’ affairs became the sole responsibility of the opposition leader? Is it your mental mania that RW, instead of being the opposition leader of parliament, must be the strike leader, vigil leader, street fight leader, protest march leader, sabotage leader and the opposition terrorism leader while you all armchair revolutionists engage in cyber forum revolutions in the comfort of your isolated den!#? When he turns up at Fort in support for the Weliweriya water crisis even the Weliweriya people themselves won’t turn up! When he says you to vote for UNP to end this corrupt regime you say, “give your vote to Chaura Rajija because she has had negative publicity in the past and this would work in her favour”! You peoples’ senses have been so anesthetized that you do not know how to make a revolution in 8 hours by simply casting your vote intelligently! You want all types of fights, quarrels, violence and extravagant internecine cannibalism to solve the problem of good governance. Way to go man! Get a life! “FULL STOP”! Aaa..hah! Very nice!

                      aren’t you trying to justify and repeat Ranil’s crap over and over again here , why would any one want to talk about supremacy of the parliament and judiciary when executive has taken control of the very same institutions ? not stopping there , you had the audacity to attack all the other podieyns (opposition Mps ,lawyers et al )for not doing enough to send MR packing , who are you trying to fool here mate ?

                      “What da.., Since when do you say lawyers’ affairs became the sole responsibility of the opposition leader? Is it your mental mania that RW, instead of being the opposition leader of parliament, must be the strike leader, vigil leader, street fight leader, protest march leader, sabotage leader and the opposition terrorism leader while you all armchair revolutionists engage in cyber forum revolutions in the comfort of your isolated den!#? “

                      again , as usual you try to twist & turn the primary issue and manipulate the whole story for Ranil’s advantage ! just take a look at this following concocted story “Since when do you say lawyers’ affairs became the sole responsibility of the opposition leader?” did i say such things , if you can’t identify and differentiate the basic of the argument , is there any valid reason for me to waste my time on these hypothetical questioning ?

                      to be fair on lawyers , there were many conscious/respectful/decent lawyers who tried their level best to show their solidarity with her by flocking towards her.on the contrary double dipping Ranil was busy on explaining non existence lattimer house principles , it’s a public secret that Shirani B was bidding for MR up to a certain level and every body condemned her behavior in the strongest terms , but when it came to impeachment , it was the prestigious position at stake than an individual , for the sake of backing Ranil’s ultra selfish action you have chosen to bash the individual than protecting the position !

                      finally , again you have dodged the question of naming CC ,by giving weak excuses , i repeat Ranil has no answers to any of current burning issues , all he wants is to be the permanent opposition leader in SL , period !

                      Your whole approach of the debate looks like the so called “Sirasa Wesak Kalapaya” where there is a concoct of everything that misfits except intellect and sanity-the bones and balls of Sariyuth, Mugalan and the Buddha whose canine or swine affinity has never been excluded in this DNA reading age-a Chaura Queen champions your mind, so are the barren and supremely credulous minds of the thousands by three bits of rotten bones. There, you have the president as well as the opposition leader, something you must be fully satisfied to feel good about and added to your let loose arsenal. The supremely Buddhist devout devotees are welcome to a gourmandizing Dansala far rivaling those of election time Dansalas at AMadura, fed from open through to exit full of the visceral, led and guided to the zenith of ignorance sacredly cradled inside a casket fitted with magnifying glasses so that the unnoticed latent ignorance may be exploded into inconceivable magnitudes of gullible blind faith of a weak intellect. There, you surrender your intellect, conscience, fidelity and fate at the feet of a Kallathoni from India who operates a media rag superimposing his empty “Siasa” on the headless mad devotees of this unfortunate island. Their much hyped voice cuts say they are supremely happy and grateful to Sirasa as if to say hereafter they will completely interpret Buddha’s words in the words of Maharaja alone and nothing else. You are treated with devout songs, digital thorang, pandols, buckets and baskets, this and that and for the first time ever miracles like Pirith Apps S-lon.com! I am sure they will create world’s first emancipation programme Nirvana.com (or EndYourAssPain.com) just after a four SuperStar series beginning from Sirasa Sovan Star to Sirasa Sakurudagami, Anagami and Arhat Star! The whole Sakurudagami business would be officially sponsored by News First, official drink would be ethanol and directed by Kallathoni Maharaja’s Moda Media Rag Inc and produced by Mahinda Rajapaksha Brothers Sons Wives Relations Lackeys and Goons Inc.

                      So, back to the business again. I believe I have sufficiently supported my argument that a Common Candidate must run, CB can be a candidate but that certain aspects of her raise questions of that choice and that I prefer a new candidate. But you carry on playing your old record that CB is the chosen one, I am a Ranil’s mad follower and the usual crap you write about SB impeachment to criticize Ranil. You never seem to consider or understand the facts I put forward in the dialog and invariably misinterpret and come up with craps and cranks which are numerous to mention here.

                      For example I stated what you mentioned about CB’s choice has some valid considerations, she could win under certain conditions but expressed fears on some other considerations. Then I argued how a new runner could be a better choice. But from your part you only obstinately pursued CB’s choice and never engaged in a fair analysis of various aspects of the scenario that could come into being. You even gave a wrong interpretation or misunderstood on what I said about Dayasory. You spoke about Dayasiri to indicate how bad publicity can be used to a winning situation. When I recycled your statement it was meant to convey a different matter. It was to highlight a contrasting fact about your “Chandirka’s Goloyo” story. True that CB has Goloyos: and I will give you the whole government benches headcount if you like, and may be 100,000 heads throughout the country. But I referred not to this category but to the general vote base in the country. It is they who must consider CB as their sole savior, as you say. This is where I applied my denial. Before you throw up your words like I am a weak counter attacker, defensive mode, specificities, shooting messenger, bizarre behavior, constructive/health debate, overlooking, getting wayaaaaaaa out of tolerance level! (I am shaken, my Mickey Mouse just left me! Hellllp!), straight forward, relevant answer, vague/arrogant/insulting rhetoric!-a very good set of words to go with a CB supporter!

                      I found two intriguing words that you used: generalization and “I am not a CB supporter”. I argued how, even though you criticized CB, your ultimate displacement is tantamount to being a supporter of the Rajapaksha regime. You never countered my argument and conveniently avoided the points raised and took cover under a set of words I mentioned above which are found in any English dictionary. I reasoned why I am not concerned about the CC for the reasons I put forward but you keep repeating your “who, who, who; who let the dogs out manthra” and try to portray me as a timid character.

                      Generalization is needed in these political matters. It is only under Rajapaksha jack boot autocracy where this democratic generalization is absent and “strait at it” by the “one above the law” exists. Here we have million ideas all of which cannot be materialized in a practical world. So we generalize. So why hate it? Now, you said numerous things in your posts but if I were to go after each one of them I would have to die on my key board replying to you. So I watch the direction you traverse-whither srilal: to the jungle, precipice, garden path, pirate route or route of hope and trust, genuineness and sincerity, fallacy or truth.

                      I don’t have time to waste blowing long winded trumpet so I wind up by quoting something you wrote which clearly indicates how weak you are at constructing your arguments in addition to being quite contradictory and self-cancelling:

                      “..the contrary double dipping Ranil was busy on explaining non existence lattimer house principles , it’s a public secret that Shirani B was bidding for MR up to a certain level and every body condemned her behavior in the strongest terms , but when it came to impeachment , it was the prestigious position at stake than an individual , for the sake of backing Ranil’s ultra selfish action you have chosen to bash the individual than protecting the position !..”

                      See how farcical you are! It was not the “prestigious position” but the “Shirani B was bidding for MR” who was impeached fool! She could not live up to the respect of the prestigious position she held and sullied both the reputation of the position and that of her name. It was a position that had existed for many many years of Sri Lankan judicial history that she tarnished. When that celebrated and solemn office is assumed both the person and office become one. They become inseparable. When the person does “bidding” for the despot, it tarnishes the office also. Ranil as the leader of the opposition and holding the moral high ground above any of the contemporary political contenders, whose corruption and blameworthy index is virtually zero, and as the rightful leader of UNP in the protocol and in the right order historically, in seniority, in experience, in honesty and reputation would not entangle himself with SB kohollabaga. It is people like you with limited political perspective and profile who are making a big gung ho about peripheral and trivial issues.

                      You have an insatiable desire to know about the Common Candidate. I will give you one name-Shrani Bandaranayake, the heroine in your political fantasy. But alas, the “biddings up to a certain level” she did with MARA could throw her out of the equation! Almost everybody has had his/her share of bidding with MARA among current political creatures! By the way, can you show me one that RW has had with MARA which can prevent and handicap him to run for EP? Relax, don’t open your almirah now or search your attic and come up with silly mud like Sirikotha Road carpeting, just concluded Thoran opening and all those nonsense but things which can be categorized as real corruption, malpractice, misappropriation, nepotism etc. Did you say he is getting billions and billions of dollars from abroad and donors for the party and no one knows where that money goes or some crap like that? I mean not the crap like that but real concrete and proven facts make him unsuitable to hold this post.

                      PS: I really wanted to end this debate but since you kept pricking the old would I had to dig this out. Anyway no hard feelings and man has been given a very flexible mind and if rightly used we can create new initiatives and methods and walk out of this Rajapaksha autocracy. If the whole opposition of the regime put their thoughts together in a genuine effort and select CB as the CC I will judge by the merits and future prospects of the proposal and live it with it and support the common cause for the greater good of the country and people.

          RW is unequivocally a good leader and he has all capacities to turn the country to a better one.

          But so long people of the country would allow rascals to manipulate them, nothing would work. There we have two options

          a) Option 1 – people should become better aware about the facts and figures of the current administration –
          b) Option 2 – RW should learn to win also the hearts and minds of villagers that are the voter base of any election winners.

          And I have an another serious question to you SILVA:

          RW is still the opposition leader of current parliament, but at the time former CJ was impeached, could RW be able to react adequately ? There he could prove his abilities, but as we all know, he could not do so for some reasons.
          I wish I could know what this SELF proclaimed arrogant UNP supporter -Silva has to say in terms of CJ’s unconstitutional impeachment.
          I myself have not had the chance to support any party politics in the country, but today, I would support UNP because the bunch on ruling side are beyond highly abusive men.

            As we all know , Ranil’s double dealings were truly exposed by his bizarre behavior during CJ’s impeachment saga , remember how he supported MR by hiding behind ” parliament is supreme BS ” , what about 18 th Amendment , did he do enough to educate the masses ? how about MR’s sudden intervention and rescuing fiasco effort at Sirikotha (overnight road carpeting farce) when RW was in real trouble ! how about that selfish act of dumping Gen SF and asking him to get a Rs 20 ticket to get the UNP membership ? who can forgive him for his ultra selfish act of blocking the emergence of a potential leader within the UNP ?

            My gut feelings say RW and sajith would prefer the current statuesquo than supporting CBK , it is evident that both RW & Sajith would be more comfortable and secured under the new MR rule than being side lined by New CBK administration.

              I agree with you and handful of commentators in the view that only canddiate that will learn a lession to the most disgustful leader the country ever has produced – MR – is former president CBK.

              “I wish I could know what this SELF proclaimed arrogant UNP supporter -Silva has to say in terms of CJ’s unconstitutional impeachment “

              Repeat, I would love to read what this man “Silva” has to say in terms of former CJ’s impeachment process that unconsititutionally made by the incumbent in a night race speed.

              Silva’s langauge used above DEFENDING RW is not far different from that of Mervin the vermin/ Ghanasara/Panchikawatta thugs or UPFA thugs that harmed the UNP MPs few weeks ago in Hambantota.

                  I respect RW for him being an educated, gentle sorta uncorupted politician – but to be honest, I respected Lalith Athulathmudali more in late 80ties. Anyways, I really dont think in today’s context such gentle kind of clean politicians could easily convince the majority rural masses that would even vote any illiterate into power specially in countries such as ours.

        Ranasinghe Premadasa never trusted his UNP colleagues during his reign.He had to fight Three wars at the same time (JVP, LTTE and withinUNP own party members). Bombs were going off under the chairs in Parliament. Lot of UNP Ministers and MP’s perished at Grandpas LTTE bomb blast.

        Same past ghosts of suspicion, mistrust and power grab are haunting UNP until now.

      here are some political leaders who deliver lectures in the most boring style. And, Leader of Sri Lanka’s United National Party (UNP), Ranil Wickremesinghe, proved himself to be one of them at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), United States on 1 May, when he delivered a lecture to an audience of less than five persons, in an almost empty auditorium.

        Dear Amarasiri ,

        yes it’s true , that lecture room was empty , but can any one possibly dismiss his excellent performance due to non attendance of a mass crowd ?

        let me put it this way , name any one in SL politics who can deliver a decent lecture in English without a teleprompter ? as you know i’m no fan of Ranil , but we must learn to appreciate things when it’s due , Ranil’s performance was very much par with sanga’s superb speech which he delivered in England few years ago !

        Lady’s involvement in late 80ties brought peace back to the nation.

        Today, the sort of peace that people expect her to restore is though today different to that that time, but she is the only person to drive away the thugs – out of our sights.

        Thugs that have no respect for JUSTICE and dignity of life

        Thugs that harm decent political agenda but introducing their programs of no vision at all.

        Thugs that hold Hambantota as a place still to be liberated by democratic forces.

        Thugs that have ruined the nation telling something else like protection of sinhala buddhissm in order to consolidate their political powers.

        Thugs that have always been manipulating the masses of this country- that are the poor majority making up over 70% – struggling for their living but no brains to see beyond knowing facts and figures of the current politics.

    This too decent guy RW just woke up after the hibernation and let’s not ask him to do things which he is not used to do. It doesn’t make any difference whether he is hibernating or awake. He can only do so much or nothing at all. He’s the best example of a bad leader. I know we are a cursed lot and we have such a useless opposition (?) leader ! Oh well, it’s pretty obvious that RW is working for that cunning MR. MR has mesmerized and brain washed RW for good.
    It’s better for RW and the nation if he can quit politics altogether.
    The sad thing is we do not have any decent and honest politician today.

    Dear Sir,

    You are a very good administrator best to run a government but a politicians. What you do is a five star politics which does not suit to a community which is deep rooted with nationalist ideals and communal ism which is well manipulated by the ruler to its advantage.

    Unless you start a campaign to educate the masses about dirty politics at grass root levels or you adapt yourself to suit the atmosphere created by this regime with the status of impunity offered to BBS at el ypu cannot succeed and serve the country for better prospects.

    This is just to recall my memory while you were in power I told Suranimal Rajapaksa the then minister of educational services that since you were not doing politics there is a chance of you being cheated by the Govt. As I said Chandrika and Mahinda both cheated you on two different occasions.

    I am not a person with political knowledge to advise you sir, but based on my experience with dirty politics I could predict this. Other thing is you must have some one who can do the best research and assessment of media as your present media bosses i perceive as kalakaruwo Artistes and not mediamen

    Dear Mr.Ranil Wickremasinghe.

    First I thank you for gong to USA and spread our good name and image in USA. You should also meet many Congressmen and Senators as much as possible and should talk about our current Political, economic, social and communal life with them.

    Second I tell that it is not only USA but you should visit as many countries as possible including UK, EU, Russia, Japan, China and India etc. Please meet as many representatives as possible and keep contacts with them and keep them informed.

    Third similar to JVP you should invite Foreign delegates to visit Sri Lanka often and build a close rapport with them.

    Fourth you should influence them to change Rajapakse 18th Amendment, as this 18th Amendment is the curse for our country while the dictator manupulates it to stay in power. You should work hard to abolish 18th Amendment ASAP before the next Presidential elections.

    Due to 18th Amendment, now even an Elephant calf is not free and safe in Sri Lanka. Alibabas have stolen everything including Elephants, Museum Artifacts and even our EPF,ETF money.

    Please get help from US intelligence services to protect our Assets, Artifacts, Elephants, abductions and disappearances and to track drug Mafia, cocain, and ethenol distribution network and Black money Laundering.

    Also get as much US Funding and technical support for UNP and Joint opposition to win next Parliamentary and Presidential elections.

    Unless you keep vigilant now, when you come into power there will not be even bones left in Sri Lanka’s Central Bank.

    Hope you remember Kangetta, grease yaka and Tsunami Jackpot Alibaba.

    Also learn how to face and overcome the Famous Computer Gilmart crooks and master stealers during next elections.

    So be Vigilant and get as much help as you can from International community. Thank you.

            I would love to see the pathetic, ugly, fearful faces of Gota/DullAss/Weerawansa/Champika/Paisa Mustappa/Gommanpilla/Gandasara/Doglaas Devananda et al, when gonraja falls.
            Cant wait to rename Magampura and Mattala ports.
            Cant wait to rename Nelum Pokuna.
            Cant wait to rename the Cricket stadium.
            Cant wait to ground the HIMIN Air.
            Cant wait to cease the Carlton Sport Channel.
            Cant wait to send show cause notices to 1001 rogues of HarakHora Raja.
            Cant wait to lock another 1001 petty rogues of Gonraja.
            Cant wait to streamline ITN/Rupavahini/Lakehouse.
            ……oh forget it the list is too long.

                what do you think about the common candidate of the opposition ?

                  Sirimal ,

                  Long time no see ?
                  as i have repeatedly stated ,there is only one candidate who can beat MR , that is CBK ! in order to achieve that milestone , there need to be careful planning & strategies in place , here are few of those strategies ,

                  1) Restoration of the 17 th Amendment
                  2) Ven sobitha Thero’s name annexation to CBK’s candidacy
                  3) backing of UNP as a one party
                  4) Gen SF ,TNA,Muslim parties endorsement
                  5) Getting JVP’s support if possible

                  if the UNP takes leadership role under Karu & Mangala , reaching to the mission impossible is possible.

                    Srilal,

                    This srilal is a junk collector. He speaks of young blood but loves the rejected and discarded items. Everybody knows how the moda choon CB destroyed the country. What his stupid person does not understand is that the very name “Bandit Queen” will disqualify her to win votes. This rejected woman now senile and ga ga is on the brink of her grave and she is now looking after her hereafter life matters. That is why she came to the feet of RW with some multi-religious co-existence issue. If she wanted to remain in politics she would not go after morbid and next to graveyard business but engage in political undertakings. Speaks volumes why pseudo-pandits like srilal are merrily breaking pots and pans in resistance-less forums like these. But don’t get excited just because there are less comments criticizing you others are as dumb and deaf like you et al do. Your paid and hired duty is to prevent a winnable common opposition candidate from emerging. You are a supporter of the rogue regime.

                      By any chance, are u siamese twin of RW ?

                      Need of the hour is not to criticise anyone, but to rally round to drive Rajapakshes away from our sights.

                      We the anti Rajapskhe but respecting rule of law, dignity of life unequivocally agree with Srilal, Lasantha, but mostly not with you. How can RW give a life to uniting UNP ? – is the interest of almost everyone that are against the brutal MR regime.

                      So, my suggestion is common coalition can easily defeat MR.

                      srilal,

                      Calm down! You look beautiful when you are angry-like a pretty girl! And I love see you cry!

                      Yes you and I both have these birth rights, but at the moment they solely survive purely on the strength and bravery of a few people who are operating CT and few other forums. You can’t speak or write publicly or by your true name. Our freedoms are hanging by a few strands of straw! We and the country must be eternally grateful to CT and its operators. That credit must also go to WWW without which Rajapaksha antics would have been almost impossible to be known by others.

                      If I may request to you, do reconsider your golden eggs. They could be fake. I have written enough arguing they are so. You have written enough claiming RW must quit. I am sorry I don’t buy that. You could not provide me with any logic or reason why I should think so. Contrastingly, you provided me with all the more reasons why I must pursue RW with more vigor and relentlessly. Perhaps you may view me as your enemy. But I am very sorry, I have to do it not for me but for the sake of the country.

                      However, there is one thing that can be vaguely link to what you say, but you never suggested it. A very unfavorable and unpopular image has been created in the minds of people throughout the country; they don’t simply like him. Therefore, if UNP is to muster and increase its vote base to a winning measure there has to be a populist figure in a presidential battle. UNP’s authorized body will decide on it at the correct time. You and I can propose our aspirants. And there is no sense in creating a big commotion in these forums that RW must go and all that. It will simply not work nor party constitutional. Let me say this final thing: just because a wrong and calculated misconception has been created and planted in the minds of people about RW, it cannot take out the reality and facts out of RW and his true ability and capacity. Think objectively and logically on what has been written.

                      what kind of coalition you refer here to have already built up by RW?

                      Silva should be gonharakek to call CBK as Moda queen.

                      So he should not have found words to describe the today’s situation.

                      So long if anyone would add their love towards, this bugger, SILVA would stay calm and quiet., all others are for him, just idiots, failures etc. I really dont know how many of them are in lanken populace.
                      Right at the moment, we only want the bugger MR to be removed from lanken politics. That will only be a reality if CBK would contest.

                      There are large fraction within UPFA will support CBK.

                      Somehow I have quoted the wrong part. It must be the following:

                      “what kind of coalition you refer here to have already built up by RW? How do you want us to act here ?”

                      Samuel Jayamanne,

                      “So long if anyone would add their love towards, this bugger, SILVA would stay calm and quiet., all others are for him, just idiots, failures etc. I really dont know how many of them are in lanken populace.”

                      Let me modify your broken English gibberish,

                      “So long if anyone would add their love towards these Samuel et al buggers by promoting the Bandit Queen, these buggers, Samuel, srilal, Amaraya et al would stay calm and quiet., all others are for them, just idiots, failures etc. I really dont know how many of them are in lanken populace.”

                      Uneducated and half educated buggers like you would only fit at junk yards in Panchikawatta and elsewhere and not in real politics. Your Banda was ironically shot dead by a Buddhist monk, a component of your unholy concoct panchamahabalawegaya and your party of vassals of walawwa could not find a suitable substitute and therefore took out the housewife Sirima, clad here with political costumes and got her to unleash a cultivation spree of manioc mania! Then came the ever late and promiscuous CB with a shit piece of surgical plaster on a forehead and began crying before cameras. The donkeys in the country who are no more wiser than you et al handsomely casted their vote for her to make her the Bandit Queen of SL. One of her heroics was to give a hair cut to Chandralekha couple.

                      No amount of your gibberish can create a common opposition. In fact your calculated attempt is to weaken the common opposition by promoting dissent and your chosen fronts are Wimal, Champika, AKD, SF, CBK…

    Unfortunately,Ranil,an uncorrupted politician, has been vilified by his own party members who wish to lead, without knowing how.
    He has a good grasp of international affairs and national pros and cons with regard to good governance.
    He lost the premiership twice,and has learned his lessons.
    UNP should back him for the presidency.

    “Ranil Wickremasinghe will not contest the next Presidential election” says the senior UNP MP John Amaratunga..

    John A goes further to say , the UNP will pull out a star candidate once the election is announced.

    Are the UNP members a bunch of imbeciles to be treated like this?.

    The great majority of the inhabitant population who happen to be rural Sinhala Buddhists will never ever vote for the UNP. even if Ranil is rolled.

    So these Johnses cant fool them. Neither they read or access those blocked out websites.

    Ranil here is trying to hoodwink his supporters again with his empty rhetoric.

    LankaeNews and Tamilnet are full on LTTE affiliates.

    Even Intelligent Srilankans who like the UNP will be turned off by the racist , vile anti Sinhala anti Buddhist propaganda which these publications pump out.

    However, stopping access to CT is not logical, when Tamil Week is available on the Net.

    But the most hurting for the English speaking UNP supporters is the non availability of the free raunchy sites from US, Canada , EU and India like Xhamster, Booloo, X Videos etc….

    May be that is the reason for this avowed Presidential non contestant to come out with this demand….

      Rajapakses will implode within than without, mean the destruction will come from within the family.

      Gota will lead the division in UPA which we already see.

      Soon the excess will start jump over board, starting from JHU.

      Rajapakse Dynasty days are numbered.

      A joint coalition with a Federal governing system is seen in the horizon.

        Mark my word. Neither Champika nor Wimal will leave the coalition lead by MR. All three will patch their differences for they need each other to garner nationalistic and patriotic votes. Also, the duo knows that they’re nothing on their own and they have no other to allay with.

        lasantha ,

        I’m neither a fan nor a follower of that racist party “JHU” , but i’ve great respect for Mr. Patali Champika Ranawaka ,as he is the only guy who has a back bone to stand up against the tyranny , just to mention a few of his commendable actions

        1) when all the other puppets/lamp posts {even UNP MPs (Paba, sri ranga et al) , Vasu, Dew ,prof. Thissa W, Hakeem et al had chosen to betray the nation for their own selfish deeds } who occupy the SL parliament chose to vote for the draconian 18 th Amendment , only Champika had the real guts & foresight to vote against that truly antidemocratic bill.

        2)stood up against the Electricity mafia/Monopoly/corruption i.e Norocholai, Sampoor etc.

        3)voting against the latest casino bill .

        MR knew from the beginning that Champika is a different kettle of fish and a tough nut to crack , hence champika was replaced with that useless Pavithra who didn’t have a clue about electricity, it was reported that Pavithra didn’t know the difference between MW and GW in electrical Engineering when she was offered the portfolio.

        it is also worth mentioning academically qualified (B.Sc Eng from Moratuwa) Champika can be categorized as the least corrupt individual among the highly corrupted government goons .

          srilal,

          Yes I agree with your comment about Patali C. Ranawaka.

          Infact Patali is the ideal Minister to run Electricity Board. He is the Minister who highlighted the corruption behind the Electricity board and Norochcholai.

          He was fired when he showed the massive fraud and loss behind the Sampoor project. We are about to see the fraud and eternal loss from Sampoor/ India Project. But Pres.Rajapakse is more into safeguarding his seat than the loss Sri Lanka will bare from this project.

          Only problem with Patali is his racist Sinhala Buddhist views on other Minority religions. Buddhists in Sri Lanka has all the freedom to wear whichever way they want. Why other communities and religions have the same freedom. Patali is a Buddhist racist and that is his weakness.

          Surely the time Sri Lanka start paying China’s 4 Billion dollars MR borrowed loans starting starting from 2015, Sri Lanka could see the stars during day time. It’s that bad.

          Ranil is the only President who narrowed the Balance sheet deficit and kept the inflation under control, and also had the best trade deals with International community. But MR lost all of them when we lost EU GSP.

          Let’s see how MR’s dynasty ends.

    If anyone with sanity studied closely the way those culprits (Rajapakshe) treated decent UNP MPs in Hambantota lately, he/she would agree that current administration has reached to its all abusive levels. UNP LEADER RW is not uneducated, rascal minded or uncultured to be able to get on with the rascals in power today, that is the key problem to peace loving law respecting nation today.
    If Sajith had several decades long political maturity, he could fit best to remove MR, but he fails to do so, if he would be the candidate in upcoming P election.

    I do not know what are the freedoms Ranil wants. My friends in the West thinks UNP is in power in Sri Lanka, and Ranil is the new Executive Prime Minister. What ever website you go to all bragging about a Common Candidate and Rajapaksa is in the drain. The media has jungle authority to twist anything about Sri Lanka
