Ranil The Executive, Maithri The Approver

By Malinda Seneviratne

Those who don’t understand the truth about Kolombia, Kolumbianness and Kolombians just cannot understand the political reality of Sri Lanka. There are people who are asking some strange questions. Some are asking, for example, how Ranil gets to call the shots when the people actually voted for someone else. Well, Maithripala himself has provided a clue.

A few weeks ago, the man elected to the all-powerful office of the President went to the UK. He was received by Her Royal Highness Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace. He was also received at No 10, Downing Street by British Prime Minister David Cameron. Now there’s nothing newsy about these occasions, they are after all courtesies extended to most visiting Heads of State. What was different about our man Sirisena is how HE received or rather embraced (or understood) the whole thing.

Before we get to that, let’s just assume that it was Ranil and not Maithri who had gone to the UK. What would he have done? Well, first of all, he would have been accorded the same courtesies. He would have never dreamed of turning up in a national dress. He would have dressed up in coat and tie as befitting a true Kolombian. Yes, his uncle JR went for Prince Charles’ wedding in national dress but that was a different time. Under Ranil we don’t have to pretend that we are not who we are. He doesn’t have to pretend he is not who he is. He is a Kolombian and is justifiably proud of the fact, we are sure.

Ranil MaithriWhat would Ranil have done after exchanging pleasantries with the Queen and Cameron? He would have, I am certain, briefed the media about the conversations that took place. He would have been quite matter-of-fact about it.

Not Sirisena. Sure, he did tell the media what the Queen and the Prime Minister had said. He didn’t say much about what he contributed to the discussions. Maybe he just listened for the most part. What’s striking is how he described the two meetings. He was clearly overawed. He just couldn’t get over it. He blurted it out when he addressed his party faithful. Even that wasn’t enough. He said it all over again when he met the media heads, it was reported. He was clearly less impressed by what was said than by who said it and where.

This is the difference between Kolombians and others. Kolombians clearly know who is who and what is what. For us, the Queen is at the top. The British Prime Minister is also the Prime Minister of Kolombia for all intents and purposes. We humbly accept this, but we don’t show it. We know our place. If Ranil was President and was visiting the Motherland to pay respects to the Queen and the Premier he would know who is who, who he is and who is not. He won’t come back and spell it all out.

Kolombians have class. Ranil has class. Non-Kolombians like Maithri have a class, act as though they are classless and end up looking like the underclass that they are. This is why Kolombians have ruled this country, even if non-Kolombians appear to have the power. The only downside to the current power-arrangement is that Maithripala is revealing to the entire nation what only us Kolombians were privy to. I am not sure if that’s a good thing.

    Malinda Seneviratne , Mahinda Rajapaksa Shill and White-Washer.

    Still time left on your Mahinda Shilling Contract?

    “Before we get to that, let’s just assume that it was Ranil and not Maithri who had gone to the UK. What would he have done? Well, first of all, he would have been accorded the same courtesies.”

    You shill, now you are on to What If Scenarios.

    Stick to the real world, not what if world, you Mahinda shill.

    At least, the Queen shook hands after taking the Queenly Gloves with Mr. Maitipala Sirisena. Nobody in their right mind would do that with the scum Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    Malinda, what is your IQ ? 79 or less?

    However, the good news is that there are 58 lakhs with IQ less than 79 you can address your question, bit that fraction is disappearing fast.

          “This gentleman, Amarasiricannot comprehend simple Enlish, but berating indiscriminately like a dog barking at the moon Whose payroll are you in Mr Amarasiri?”

          Malinda Shill, good try using clones, but exposed.

          1. Amarasiri is on nobody’s payroll. Amarasiri is a gentleman, as you say. ( a man of independent means who does not engage in any occupation or profession for gain.)

          So, Malinda Seneviratna and the Shills who are Caligula Mahinda Rajapaksa and his Shills must be on Mahinda Rajapaksa’s payroll with the billions stolen from the people of Sri Lanka.

          2. Amarasiri’s Simple English is good enough to get the message across and communicate the observations, data, reason, and facts so that the truth is brought to the surface, and the myths and lies can be exposed.

          Amarasiri is of the opinion that a language is a “Medium of Communication”.

          The tag line of Colombo Telegraph is “IN JOURNALISM TRUTH IS A PROCESS”. That is fine. The Truth should be reported and pulled out from the myths and lies.

          Amarasiri may add, “IN COMMENTING TRUTH IS A PROCESS”. More truths are being pulled out by the commentators than by the original article.

              “hate the Sinhalese so much”.

              Hate is the word very Common with Sinhala Buddhists, but not with Buddhists who follow Buddha Dhamma.

              Amarasiri Loves all the civilized inhabitants of Lanka, the Land of Native Veddah Aethho. However, they have to behave. Amarasiri loves the 6.3 million Lankans with Common Sense who voted OUT the Medamulana Mahinda Rajapaksa, who was fooling the Sinhala. The sinhala Modayas and Tamil Mootals need to get common sense.

              That include Para-Sinhala, Para-Tamils, Para-Muslims, Para- Portuguesa, Para-Dutch, Para-Malay, Para-English and even the Para-Chinese, as long as they are civilized and treats the fellow inhabitants with respect, without spreading lies.

              Accept the facts. The Church could not make the sun go around the earth, despite Joshua’s claims. Remember, Sinhala and Tamils are Para, too, as evidenced by the DNA in their bodies, despite all the lies in Dipawansa and Mahawansa.

              http://biblehub.com/joshua/10-13.htm

              Joshua 10:13
              New International Version
              So the sun stood still, and the moon stopped, till the nation avenged itself on its enemies, as it is written in the Book of Jashar. The sun stopped in the middle of the sky and delayed going down about a full day.

      Hello Amrasiri
      ’58 lakhs out of the those who voted have an IQ lower than 79 and that fraction is disappearing fast’
      Two queries here Mr Amarasiri
      1) 58 lakhs is a number not a fraction. eaither you donot know your english or you do not have an IQ high enough to understand the difference.
      2 ” this fraction is disappearing fast”. Does that mean the number of people with IQ lower than 79 is coming down rapidly. Doe that mean that the IQ of the voting population has started to rise since January 8th with change of government.
      It appears that what cows have in their rectum is what you have in your thick skull.

        Malinda,

        “However, the good news is that there are 58 lakhs with IQ less than 79 you can address your question, bit that fraction is disappearing fast.”

        1. Let Amarasiri clarify. The Average IQ of Sri Lanka, appears to be 79. 58 Lakhs voted for Medamulana Mahinda Rajapaksa. 62.5 Lakhs Voted for the Common (Sense) Candidate Mr. Maitripala Sirisena, in throwing out the despot Mahinda Rajapaksa. He was the only President of Sri Lanka to be thrown out of Office.

        Using reason, it can be taken as a first approximation, that the 68 Lakhs who voted for the despot have IQ below the average of 79.

        Because of communications and the internet, the general IQ is increasing overall, including those below 79, like you, and many will move over the current average of 79.

        So, Medamulana Mahinda rajapaksa will have fewer and fewer Modayas, Mootal and Fools to mislead, and his will have a declining Midaya base or modaya Fraction.

          “Using reason, it can be taken as a first approximation, that the 68 Lakhs who voted for the despot have IQ below the average of 79. “

          CORRECTION: 58 Lakhs Using reason, it can be taken as a first approximation, that the 58 Lakhs who voted for the despot have IQ below the average of 79.

          Mr Amarasiri.
          one more point.
          90 % of estate tamils, 85% of tamils in north, 855 muslims in this country and 80% cathoilics voted for Maithree. Is it that they have a very high IQ ?

            “90 % of estate tamils, 85% of tamils in north, 855 muslims in this country and 80% cathoilics voted for Maithree. Is it that they have a very high IQ ?”

            They all have a higher common sense as well. Still 10% to 20% Low IQ non-Sinhala Buddhists voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa.

            (25% of Americans and 34% of Europeans still think that the sun Goes around the Earth)

            46% of Sinhala Buddhists also voted for Mr. Mairtipala Sirisena, who were fooled.

            If you take the average IQ of those who voted for Maitripala sirisena and Compare that to those who voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa, you will find that average to be higher.

            In the current electoral system in sri Lanka, the sri Lankan with an IQ of 130 gets one vote, and the Modaya, Mootal or Fool with IQ of 79 or below, say 60, also gets 1 vote.

            So If you normalize the Votes based on IQ, Mr. Mitriplal Sirisena Probably won by 20 to 40 IQ points.

            Average IQ of Those who voted for Mahinda Rajapaksa 65.

            Average IQ of Those Who Voted for Mitripals Sirisena = 93.

            Average IQ difference = 93-65 = 28. About 1 standard Deviation.

              CORRECTED:

              46% of Sinhala Buddhists also voted for Mr. Mairtipala Sirisena, who were NOT fooled.

              Only a person with low iq would suggest that a person with a low iq should have lesser number votes than one with higher iq. Such people belong to 19th century when it was common belief that only white skinned males should have voting rights.

    We all know Malinda is a partial DJ and he does not like Ranil,our Prime Minister. If MR has been in the scene his opinion and the comments in his article would have been different.

    Why do you pick tough topics as the one above, why don’t you write one about Nisanha Wicramasinghe and Sri Lankan Airline. I am sure you will do a better job as you can go even a few more layers under using all the ins and outs you know about this guys.

      Aia, what ever your real name is,
      Can you write in proper English so that we can at least try to understand what what you mean.
      You woill be welcome to write an article in CT if you are so concerned about any alleged malpractice in Sri Lanka Airline if you have the command of English language.
      Malinda like the vast nubmer of other columniists appearing in CT everyday is free to write what he thinks is appropriate.
      Your attitude is that of a dog in the manger.

    Malinda, stop talking drivel. This change applies to all prime ministers hereafter. It was how this country ran from 1948 to the 1970’s.

    Answer this instead. It is about your heartthrob, Mahinda Raja:

    “His family and he have plundered this country and those charges can be proven. We are in the process of gathering evidence regarding these charges so that we can present them before a court. . .The Presidential Secretariat, which during my tenure, ran on a staff of just 283 had increased to a total 1600 officials during his term – most of them were his relatives who would come that way only on the pay day to collect their salaries,”

    It comes from CBK, our former, President.

    What have you got to say by the way? Nothing???

    Have asked the same from Dayan Silva. Awaiting replies.

    Malinda – If “Ranil has class”, surely he would not be handling the CB/Mahendran affair the way he is??? I guess it all depends on what you mean by “class”.

    Maybe a lot of those “Kolombians” you refer to are actually ‘Colombozos’ is disguise!!!

    Malinda

    Mahinda bribed you with a laptop. You were supposed to be lapping his top.

    But this article makes you appear to be lapping the top of Ranil, by showing Maithri was overawed by the Royal stunts in London which came out as Gamayata Magic.

    Dont’t you think the Sinhala Buddhist Meeharakas may even conclude that it may be better for Sri Lanka if Kolombians were permanently entrusted with the Trusteeship of Sri Lanka? After all a guy like Ranil is not going to gawk in disbelief when extended an ungloved hand.

    But Malinda, take careful note of this: I am neither a Kolombian nor a Medamulanian. I am of the normal average Sri Lankan. That endearing picture of the very sweet Mrs Sirisena, the unassuming Maithripala, the very pleased Queen, three totally sincere human beings, will remain in the psyche of the Sri Lankans for a long time – at least for another three general elections. This article is going to prove a serious Athey Pattu for you.

    It is better if you changed profession, because no average Sri Lankan now takes you seriously. That was the purpose of writing this rather longish note. Just go away and allow us ordinary folks to be awed by the exceptional humanity of human beings, whenever it pops out of the mud and slime heaped by the likes of you.

    Only a handful of Kolombians can write with such easy style, poignant wit and panache and verve.
    Unfortunately, impeccably thoroughbred Kolombian, Ranil Wickramasinghe, our Prime Minister does not come into reckoning.

    Ranil’s governing style is the way how JRJ got approved his 13th amendment. He has proven more than once with in these 80 days.

    Ranil should be defeated at the general election. If not Ranil becomes a disaster to Sri lanka just the way Mahinda Rajapakse turned out to be.

    so..nothing wrong with it. We don’t care who get what. We only care about good governance and tax payers cost. If you trying to white wash “pal Hora and his supporters” at our cost ,keep in mind it will never happen again. You Better work with Champika against 19 the amendment(as he does) to bring MR back for your own sake.But don’t forget people did it for their own good. Your racist, apartheid, linguistic, anti rural approach cant stop the country and its democratic approach.

    Excellent article in the tradition of free speech. Particularly incisive is the following comment:

    CT why are you even giving space to this [Edited out]
    This article has not given any new perspective to the reader, or said something that people already did not know. It’s simply calling a spade a spade. what would be enlightening is if this joker really focused on the reasons for Ranil to call the shots and why my3 has become the “Yes Man”.
