Ranil’s Days – Including 100 Plus – Are Over

Ranil Wickremesinghe’s brief honeymoon with his protégé / protector, Maithripala Sirisena, has come to an unexpected and abrupt end. They were indispensable to each other during the “100 days” which, of course, ran into six months, violating the mandate of January 8th, 2015. It was a symbiotic relationship in which the roles reversed between the two before and after the election. Before the presidential election of January 8th, 2015 Sirisena was dependent on Wickremesinghe. After the election Wickremesinghe was dependent on Sirisena to protect him and save him from a Parliamentary defeat.

Wickremesinghe was bloated with power as long as he had Sirisena in his pocket.. But this bubble burst on July 3 when Sirisena did to Wickremesinghe what he did to Mahinda Rajapakse : he dumped him. He brought back Mahinda Rajapaksa and gave him the electoral gift of a united SLFP. The reconciliation of the Sirisena-Mahinda factions within the SLFP is a prime necessity for the SLFP-Left–wing forces battling to regain and consolidate the historic achievements won at Nandikadal. This is what Wickremesinghe dreaded most. His dream run with Sirisena has ended in a nightmare.

Undoubtedly, this new development throws Wickremesinghe back to the doldrums in which he began. Losing Sirisena is like losing all his teeth : he has no bite. It was Sirisena’s illegitimate pen and not the legitimate majority in the Parliament that made Wickremesinghe the Prime Minister. With that appointment Sirisena paid back his debt to Wickremesinghe. But even with Sirisena’s backing, Wickremesinghe was leading a precarious existence as prime minister not knowing when he would be booted out by the SLFP majority. Sirisena protected him as much as he could purely out of gratitude for delivering the UNP votes to make him the president. But the political contract ended at the conclusion of 100 days. Sirisena’s promise / contract had no validity beyond 100 days. If one is to go by the power of mandates Sirisena got a “mandate” to make Wickremesinghe Prime Minister only for 100 days, though it ran into six months. In fairness to Sirisena it can be argued that he honored his word given to Wickremesinghe for the period of 100 days and there was no mandate beyond that to keep the SLFP divided for the UNP to win the election.

MahindaSo it is inevitable that both should go their separate ways at the end of “100 days”. Wickremesinghe-CBK expectation was to keep it going beyond the 100-days with the sole intention of keeping Mahinda Rajapaksa out. It was on this high expectation that Wickremesinghe was boasting to “bury the Rakapakse3s”. He was also floating the fiction of running a National Government which had no takers. This was a ploy to rope in Sirisena-CBK and other minor parties to transform his illegitimate minority rule into a permanent majority, with him as the Prime Minister.

The twists and turns of politics at the top in the “100 days” was spinning out of control with no one in charge. President Sirisena who was in command of the majority of the Parliamentarians – mostly his party members – was in a quandary not knowing how to be with Wickremesinghe without abandoning his political base in the SLFP. It was a contradiction which he was trying to ignore, pretending that he need not worry about rising force of the Nugegoda Man.

Only he could resolve this contradiction. But he was hoping to re-enact the futile role of King Canute who failed to roll back the waves of the sea. When he finally realized that the rising waves were going to sweep the board, whether he likes it or not, he yielded to the inevitable. He joined Nugegoda Man and decided to bring back Mahinda into the fold. This was a crushing blow to Wickremesinghe and his kissing political cousin, Chandrika Kumaratunga. It marked the end of the “Revolution of the Soda Bottle” which never took off. It fizzled out in the bottle itself within the first weeks of January 8.

Sirisena-Wickremesinghe gang fancied that this was another “1956” – the landmark cultural revolution that defined the nation and its identity for the future generations. But no one takes them seriously. Though late, they have to concede that the next revolution began in Nugegoda and is on its way to storm the corrupt Bastilles of the Bond Market manipulated by the Central Bank and Financial Criminal Investigating Division – two of Wickremesinghe creations to keep him in power. In short, Wickremesinghe was dependent solely on CBK-Sirisena wing to divide the SLFP votes and give him the break that he needs desperately to win a majority in the coming election. But the unexpected volte-face of Sirisena to bring Mahinda Rajapaksa back has put an end to Wickremesinghe’s chances of surviving beyond the “100 days” plus.

Wickremesinghe, of course, contributed to his own downfall. With his usual arrogant attitude of a know-all pundit, far superior to his inferior underlings in the backbenchers, he went all out to prove that he is the maestro manager of macro and micro economics.He imported two of his two old “catchers” – Arjuna Mahendran from Singapore and R. Paskaralingam from UK – to run the economy. As subsequent events proved neither of them made a positive contribution to boost the economy, nor did they inspire new investors to come in droves to fill the national coffers. On the contrary, Wickremesinghe’s protégé, Mahendran, did the dirty and dragged the nation and the economy to the lowest depths. According to sources monitoring the economy growth has ceased with the economy is going down precipitously to critical levels.

The antics and blunders of Wickremesinghe made Sirisena look like a mindless puppet going along with the corrupt and incompetent UNPers. His vaunted Yahapalanaya was reduced by Wickremesinghe to another corrupt regime within 100 days. More than that, Wickremesinghe used the powers of the state to establish a fascist instrument of persecuting his political opponents. Neither Sirisena nor Wickremesinghe will ever be able to live down the crimes they committed with the sale of bonds through the Central Bank and the establishment of a persecution chamber, called the Financial Crimes Investigating Division, a.k.a, Fascist Centre for Indicting Dissidents. According to financial experts the people will have to pay for the stupidities of Wickremesinghe for the next thirty years. Arjuna Mahendran and Paskaraliingam will fly away on the eve of the coming election to their safe havens in Singapore and UK respectively. It is the taxpaying voters who will have to pay through their noses for the crimes committed by the Yahapalana-yakos who presided over the plunder of the nation’s economy.

The unbearable burden of scandals exploding under the UNP-led regime was embarrassing to Sirisena in particular because Wickremesinghe had betrayed the trust he placed in him so blindly. He gave Wickremesinghe all the powers he needed and in the end Sirisena was left holding the biggest scandal ever. Sirisena’s response was silence, pretending that he had created the promised “ideal society”, as stated in his manifesto. As stated earlier, his biggest blunder was in handing over power to Wickremesinghe and Kumaratunga — two of the most incorrigible failures both at the political and economic levels. Their record confirms that together they could not even organize the preparation of simple dish of a pol sambol in the kitchen. Leaving aside their corrupt financial deals, their political failures (particularly CFA and P-TOMS) condemn them as the worst traitors since Don Juan Dharmapala handed over the nation to the Portuguese. Parliament should move jointly to pass the 21st Amendment to keep them out of national politics forever.

Wickremesinghe’s unredeemable failures were pushing President Sirisena into a Hamletian dilemma. Besides, the mounting public and party pressures were forcing him to choose between Wickremesinghe or Mahinda Rajapaksa. Much against his will he was pushed to accept Mahinda Rajapaksa back into the fold. This stunned Wickremesinghe who was hoping to piggy back on the Sinhala-Buddhist credentials of Sirisena. Without Sirisena to hold his hand, not all the other 49 minority political agents, including CIA, RAW and NGOs, can put this UNP Humpty-Dumpty together again.

Sirisena has, well and truly, put an end to the brief glory of Wickremesinghe. Sirisena’s decision to dump Wickremesinghe has given Mahinda Rajapakse that extra bit that is needed to bounce back with a reinvigorated vigour. The battle lines too have been redrawn to make field very clear. The new field is familiar territory to Mahinda Rajapaksa. At all times he was confident of taking Wickremesinghe head-on in this electoral arena. To Wickremesinghe this is his worst nightmare. He ran away from this straight contest in two successive Presidential elections – 1. 2010 by hiding behind Field Marshall Sarath Fonseka and 2. 2015 — Maithripala Sirisena. Whether he likes it or not he has to face him now in the coming parliamentary election. Had Sirisena refused to back Mahinda Rajapaksa and divided the SLFP it would have been a cake walk for Wickremesinghe. Now that Sirisena has given the blessings to Mahinda Rajapaksa, though reluctantly, Wickremesinghe will have to fall back on the usual suspects in the anti-national camps to fight for his life. He has now to fight without the nationalist oxygen given by Sirisena to save him the last time. .

It is also clear that the political alignments in the coming election will polarize the nation into two competing ethnic entities. The battle for parliamentary seats will be fought primarily in the Sinhala-Buddhist south. Power comes out of these seats in Sri Lanka. The most critical issue will be the threats to the national security. The main political objective of the Wickremesinghe-Kumaratunga combo has been and will be to take the nation back to either the CFA or P-TOMS. They will, of course, deny this and will not declare openly their aim to reverse the gains of Nandikadal. Now that Sirisena has tipped the scales in favour of Mahinda Rajapaksa both Wickremesinghe and Kumaratunga will have to fight on the territory defined by the Nugegoda Man. The manifesto was declared at Nugegoda and the rising Nugegoda Man will be a decisive factor in the coming election. The solidification of the SLFP into one formidable bloc, together the “Bring Back Mahinda wave” sweeping the nation, can be considered as a force whose time has come.

It must also be noted that in backing Mahinda Rajapaksa wiser counsel has triumphed within the divided hierarchy of the SLFP. In siding with the pro-Mahinda wing of the SLFP, abandoning both Wickremesinghe and Chandrika Bandaranaike, Sirisena saved not only the SLFP but also himself. If he stuck to his earlier decision of not giving nomination to Mahinda Rajapakse he would have, no doubt, divided the SLFP into the Mahinda-wing and anti-national CBK wing – a faction that has no traction at the grass roots. Sirisena’s decision to back Mahinda Rajapaksa saved his standing among the numerically strong SLFPers who were with Mahinda Rajapaksa both in Parliament and in the electorate. Sirisena can now retire at the end of his first term, as promised, with his head held high knowing that he had done the right thing by the SLFP. The numerical realities in the Parliament and the electorate, driven by the rising Nugegoda Man, could not be ignored by any political realist either. Sirisena proved to be that realist who had acknowledged the forces gathering momentum outside the perimeters of his Presidential office. The power building beyond his presidential realms was far greater than all the powers he was holding. As realist he conceded to the forces that were beyond his control. That was inevitable.

Bringing back Mahinda Rajapaksa can be considered as the best move he had made to stabilize the nation floundering in a very confused state.. With this far-reaching decision Sirisena liberated himself from the UNP yoke and returned to his home base, surprising once again all those who expected him to stand by Wickremesinghe. Sirisena also wiped out all speculations, resisted all pressures, both international and national, and threw his weight behind Mahinda Rajapakse, though reluctantly, abandoning Wickremesinghe. UNPers will consider it as the unkindest cut of all. It is now clear that Wickremesinghe has ended up as the loser, once again. It has proved for the umpteenth time that Wickremesinghe has never been a long distance runner. His short sprints had seldom lasted beyond 100 miserable days.

It also exposed that Wickremesinghe was never a force that had his roots in the people. He was always dependent on foreign forces, NGOs and by and large the anti-national forces. The very fact that he had to piggy back on Sirisena proves, if proof is necessary, that he is dependent either on the likes of undependable Rauf Hakeem or opportunistic TNA, or breakaway groups of the SLFP to get anywhere near seats of power. He never stood out as a charismatic figure like Dudley Senanayake or Mahinda Rajapakse. Both could stand on their own against all political forces even when they were out of power. The greatness of iconic figures like these two is that, despite all their human infirmities, they can carry the people with them. And the people too are willing to identify themselves with these leaders go along with them. They had carved their image indelibly in the hearts and minds of the people with their services to the people.

Not all the flak thrown at them has dented their mass appeal. They represent the irremovable, indispensable and irreversible historic forces which no politician aspiring for power can ignore. They represent the grass root forces that spring back, time and again, particularly in times of crisis, to regain and reassert their lost power and place. At a time like this when the very identity of the nation is under siege by foreign and local enemies, the logic of overwhelming history will invariably drive the emerging forces to align with nationalist Mahinda Rajapaksa. In some electorates pockets of minority voters too are likely to stand by Mahinda Rajapaksa. The prevailing political ambience and the fervor that drives it indicate that it is bound to reject pseudo-intellectuals faking a “revolutionary” political orgasm. Wickremesinghe goes around screaming about his “January 8th Revolution”. This must be the only “Revolution” that is running desperately in search of followers to hail the Right-wing Lenin of Sri Lanka, aligned to IDU!.

Clearly, Mahinda Rajapaksa has scored his first victory in the coming battle against Wickremesinghe. Plain citizen Mahinda Rajapaksa has proved that he is a force far greater than Wickremesinghe holding the Prime Minister’s post. Mahinda Rajapaksa has proved that power lies not in the seats of the Cabinet, or in the links to Delhi and Washington, but in the highways and byways which leads all the way to Medamulana. The election results may confirm that he has successfully broken through all political impediments that stood in his way, including NGOs, CIA, and RAW.

This then is the only way out of the “Soda Bottle Revolution” that was dead in water at birth on January 8, 2015

    The fat ladies, the voters have not sung yet. So, how the Mortals, Modayas, Fools and those with common sense will vote is not known.

    One thing is clear. Maitripala Sirisena is a spineless, wimp and coward. who was a traitor to 6,200,000 voters.

    May be, the Moddays, Mootals and Fools of Lanka, the and of Native Veddah Aethho, with an average Q of 79, will decide what they deserve,

      H. L. D. Mahindapala , Mahinda Shil and White-washer

      The fat ladies, the voters have not sung yet, but the Mara Shills and cronies are in trouble..

      Mahindapala, looks like you hatched your eggs too early, and I jumped the gun early thinking that Maitripala Sirisena became a traitor to 6,200,000 voters.

      Now there seems to a U turn.

      Yahapalanaya is alive and well, and the Shills and cronoes are looking for another branch to hang on to…

      MaRa MaRa Chatu MaRa Amana MaRa …

      Through the grape wine….

      Not only tyrannical Mahinda but even his corrupt minions in the queue will not get nominations : President Maithri re -confirms!

      President Maithripala re affirmed and re confirmed that Medamulana Percy Mahendra Rajapakse who only deserves an ignominious place in the Guinness book of records as the worst liar and tyrannical ruler in the world responsible to disgrace and degrade the country on an unprecedented level will not be granted nominations . Even those minions who are propping and prodding him will not get nominations , said President Maithripala who was steered to victory on the 8 th of January by the people who risked their lives to accomplish that for Maithripala and elect a government of good governance. It is a pity even now the deposed people discarded ex president who is considered by one and all as fast gravitating towards the grave and a spent force is despite his acute senile decay mentally and physically is engaging in most treacherous manipulations to wrest nominations from president Maithripala.

      The president gave this unequivocal confirmation when he met with the leaders of the people’s forces today (noon) who were ready to sacrifice their lives to earn him victory on 8 th January.. The president met with these patriotic forces at a venue that cannot be disclosed.(Names of the leaders who participated shall be revealed later )

      Following a lengthy discussion , the president has stated in no uncertain terms that not only Mahinda , even those minions who are queued up behind him , the notorious corrupt crooked scoundrels who were responsible to devastate the SLFP party will not be given nominations.’ ‘Even if my hand is severed I shall not grant nominations to the corrupt’ were the words used by the president.

      Accordingly, the following :
      Mahinda Rajapakse
      Namal Rajapakse
      Basil Rajapakse
      Mahindananda Aluthgamage
      Dilan Perera
      Sajin Vaas Gunawardena
      Rohitha Abeygunawardena
      S.M. Chandrasena
      T.B. Ekanayake
      Duminda Silva
      Mervyn Silva
      Lakshman Vasantha Perera
      Dhanasiri Amaratunge
      Jonstan Fernando

      are the corrupt politicos who will not be getting nominations under SLFP.

      It is significant to note that Susil Premajayantha the UPFA general secretary , even though is a bootlicking shameless stooge of the Rajapakses , he has no powers to sign for the nominations alone.In the circumstances , his statement yesterday that all the parliamentarians will be given nominations is based on his day dream.

      Desperate and dejected Mahinda who got wind of this is now frantically seeking to take refuge in Dinesh’s MEP party and its symbol , the wheel , or Wimal Weerawansa’s NFF party and its ‘panchayudha’ symbol . He is now having discussions on this.

      At the same time , according to the memorandum of understanding signed between president Maithripala and Ranil Wickremesinghe , anybody who is not granted nomination under the SLFP will not be given nomination under the UNP too. In any case , the UNP executive committee and Ranil Wickremesinghe have already decided that nominations shall not be granted to politicos facing charges of corruption.

      6.2 million people rallied together to bring about a decisive change in the country successfully .Today this number has risen phenomenally – not diminished.It is the people’s apirations and cherished aim that the government shall be anti corrupt , development and good governance prone . No mafia boss , no godfather , no selfish opportunistic or thug of a ruler can oppose this force.

      Hello friends,
      whatever this man Modapala goes on saying – we pefectly know that MR was defeated by srilankens across the country. Those nationalists would go on saying that it was TNA and other minorities made it the reality that MR should go home. But, all these are not out of country but within srilanka – they are all srilankens. Today, I have the feeling, people would see it very right whom to be given their universal franchise in the upcoming election. No many among us would react without thinking twice – since the program they faced during the last 6 months were a greater programe many to get inform themselves. Those who supported good moves and the ones that made every effforts to sarbotage became clearer. Thunmulle Wimale should be disgusting to any kind of good educated person – if he or she is honest to their heart. Thunmulle wimale would go on saying that the current Ranil-MY3 would not allow any kind of good governance, though the masses grasphed and felt to the skin that good goverancnce brought many things that MR s tyrancy failed during the last 10 years. My3 is the only president who could do so within a short period of time.

        Yes Hinni,
        I salute the current president. He is though caught by devilish situation. He is the man to represent us in lanken politics – that is for sure. I have no seen anything similar to those of Extravaganza life style performance under President Sirisena.

        A) What happenend to the car races held also inthe premises of most sacred Zahn temple

        B) What happened to the CSN broad and telecasts that sucked the millions of funds of the tax payers of the island nation – only for so called doggy royal family

        C) What happened to MUGABE style entourages – also GLP – oxford educated man being placed in the front – but loosing millions to lanken expenses that then rocketed the price hikes of daily needs of the common man ?
        These entourages created losses as no other leader ever did to lanken treachery… nobody among the stupid fraction (5.8mio) of voters int eh country would ever see this – let alone today

        All in all, I have no doubt, Mr Sirisena s adminsitration saved billions alone within the last 6 months. THere, we have to respect him and RW govt. Whoever whatever being expressed. latter is the reality as GOD would agree with it.

      We are saddened not seeing the same thoughts being passed by so called self proclaimed man of the nation Dayan Jayathilaka. Anyways, come ahead of us, we the right thinking people have to fight further against justice, peace and stablity in order to build up a ground if the country to be developed.

      As always being added by my me, each of us should be a messenger towards the development of the nation. Greedy senior men like Rajapakshe could leave the office giving any other potential men or women an apportunity to give a lead to this nation.

    Admirable analysis-cogent, factual and honest. The enemies within (who were united only by their hatred of our own heritage) and outside ( who connived to subjugate this country geopolitical reasons) joined forces to draw this great nation back to dark ages. Burying this rump once and for all was paramount if this country is to move forward as a proud nation in the aftermath of unification of the country with great sacrifice of sons and daughters of the Sri Lankan villagers 6 years ago.
    This country if fortunate that we have a man of rare talent foresight and courage to steer this country. Let us not forget that he finally vanquished this anti-national rum ( who call themselves Sinhalese) entirely by democratic means.Now this country can march forward and a new dawn is for our making.

    As a person who lived through the terror period in Sri Lanka and left Sri Lanka after the LTTE was decimated, I know the fear of terrorism. What it would be to people who were directly affected: families who lost their parents, brothers and sisters to suicide bomb blasts; people in border villages and forces personnel who went to the battlefield while intellectuals debated in the comfort of their armchairs sipping the choicest liquor.

    When the government goes for a dialogue with the Tamil Diaspora and then invites them to hold festivals and what not, were they doing that because Sri Lankans wanted it or doing that because they are dictated to by some power outside Sri Lanka? When given 100 days to govern, don’t you want to first take the people into confidence without dancing like a crab in a boiling pot of water?

    None of these people – Ranil, Mangala and CBK have done hard yards: walking among ordinary people and getting close to them. MR on the other hand is a bhumiputhra. He may be corrupt but does the common man in Sri Lanka care about those issues that affect the educated people in Sri Lanka?

    On the other hand, has Ranil or CBK or Mangala (or for that matter Dr. Harsha De Silva) taken the time to educate people about good governance and economics without beating their chests on political platforms. They had so much time from 2005.

    Ranil Wickremasinghe does not appeal to a majority of Sri Lankans. He may be honest but he is seen as a weakling. When he is in power he is stupid. He shouts about “janathawage paramadhipathya” on political platforms but gives scant respect for it, when in power.

    Yes, Mahinda Rajapakse is more appealing to a majority of Sri Lankans. I am convinced he will be returned to power due to the stupidity of Ranil Wickremasinghe.

    I will be the first to say here that I am more stupid than Ranil Wickremasinghe, if Mahinda Rajapakse loses the next election in Sri Lanka!

    If Mahinda comes back ,he comes back with the knowledge that he will not come back again. Then he has nothing to look forward to . He will be doubly worse. The people like Gigurawa would perhaps not realise even his female clan is raped by Mahind Cronies. He might think MR has done a favour to the desperate lot. While men like you exist, there is no hope for this nation.

    “But this bubble burst on July 3 when Sirisena did to Wickremesinghe what he did to Mahinda Rajapakse : he dumped him”

    He left his party, obtained UNP support to win and now is supporting an UNFPA win.

    This sign of uncertain loyalty is why some people did not want to vote for him.

    Innocent dreamers did, those who dream of a corruption free Sri Lanka with PHD politicians who do not smoke and drink ethanol based substances. Dream on.

    I was wondering where Mahindapala was these past few months.

    Now the low life Rajapaksas are back you have found your courage to re-emerge.

    When everything is said and done, when all that is good and bad are analysed, the one resounding fact remains, that we are universal Modayas. What does it matter who rules modayas. Madamukalana Musalayas are working quite well using their ill gotten wealth to work themselves back into power. The Lankan modayas have neither the acumen to understand nor the tenacity to withstand the march of the dark powers once again. Sooner rather than later the weak ‘yahapalanaya’ chief Sirisena along with his inept cohort Ranil will be simply pushed aside by the dark forces. Lacklustre and weak ‘Yahapalanaya’ or tyrannical mismanagement of ‘Jadapalanaya’ – whoever the modayas choose, the result is the same – continuation of the Sri Lankan tragic drama.

    Keep laughing Mahindapala, your boss is bound to come to power.

    Mahindapala, it’s too bad that you are such an unabashed journalistic [Edited out] or you may have ended up as a decent journalist. At least you stand by your stance, come what may (so far) and don’t come across as hypocritical, unlike your brother-in-arms Malinda Seneviratne who tries desperately to have a toe in the opposing camp knowing full well that we are all aware that he is for Mahinda.

    Keep bending over for Mahinda and get what you can out of it soon, as his time has come to be dumped in the rubbish bin of our history, along with the other corrupt hangers-on.

    M.Seneviratne, however, will have to live with the reputation for hypocrisy he has earned (along with that laptop).

    I beleive that giving Mahinda nomination is a brilliant move. This way it is sure that the SLFP will lose.
    Leaving aside party politics let’s hope that the arrogant, corrupt politicians,who have been with us for far too long,
    will be voted out, irrespective of which party.

      ” This way it is sure that the SLFP will lose.”

      By your reckoning M3S is working for the UNP, and not for the party he nominally leads. Is that why he is called Don Juan..?

    HLDM,
    Why your iconic figure MaRa did not go to NE to do Bodhi Pooja and Vishnu Pooja and invite the press for his political propaganda from the places of worship in the NE.? Is it because your iconic figure MaRa considers NE a separate country conquered by his Armed forces ?

    When is he going to Thirupathi in Andrah and Guruvaiyoor in Kerala to warn Modi from the temples?. Of course in China he can not do Poojas followed by press interviews. He does not have the guts to go to Tibet. He will go to Buddha Gaya and not Dharma last where Dalai Lama is.

    Why his gang of 4 did not organise Nugegoda type of rally in NE, Kilmunai, Aluthgama, Nuweraeliya and places like that ?

    P’S : Look at Chandrika, when she was at Muneeswaram Temple in Chilaw recently she refused to answer the political questions raised by the press. SHE TOLD THE PRESS, PLACE OF WORSHIP IS NOT APPROPRIATE PLACE TO TALK ABOUT POLITICS OR SOMETHING TO THAT EFFECT.

    Ah Prof. Calculus from Australia at it again. Mmm… I say Modapala this drama has just begun. I don’t have much faith in politicians as I treat them all with a pinch of salt. But you are taking this very seriously. Rajapassa was over the moon when UPFA Secretary issued a letter about his nomination. But with howls of protest from all quarters inside Sri Lanka ( not from the Dollar supported expats) and given Sira’s silence about the saga, Rajapassa is also having doubts if he will actually be given nomination after all. He has cancelled his opening meeting in Anuradhapura on 9th July. So wait for the second part of the drama soon. Then we can expect another lengthy tiresome article from you H.L.D.Modapala from Australia where QEII is the head of state and you have sworn to be her subject.

    RW is wetting his pants. Don juan maithreepala did the political harakiri
    If he allows Mahinda to contest, He will get wiped by the Mahinda ralla.
    If he does not, he will be wiped out by the defeated SLFP backbenchers.
    His legacy, betraying the country and his own political party for the hunger of presidency! No historian will pardon sirisena!

    The LTTE and the Tamil Diapora want Mahinda Rajapakse back at the helm. That is the only way that they can ever get their Eelam. Vigneswaran and TNA also wish a return of Rajapakse. With Rajapakse at the helm, the Western Governments will have no hesitation in accepting all of the propaganda put out by the Tamil Lobbyists.

    H L D Mahindapala is the head of the fifth column. He has always been that. HLDM has been giving dead ropes to the idiotic supporters of Rajapakse.

    Understand this. Rajapakse and the rogues have no feeling for the country. All they aim at is being in power and raping the country as long as they can. And 5.8 million of them supported the crooks at the last election. It is not for nothing that we are referred to as “Sinhala Modayas”. By the time the idiotic masses realize this, the Eelamists would have carved a separate state.

    Perhaps they will erect a statue in Jaffna for Mahindapala when they have their Eelam!

    Why does CT give space to washed up old journos such as this, who were only good at sucking up to some despot for their survival.

    With a lot of difficulty and constant insults we appear to have got DJ to shut up but now this albino write his clap trap.

    Is CT interested in being portrayed as a seriously responsible website? If so, what is this albino doing here?

    Expressing all shades of opinion is one thing. Expressing pure crap is another.

    Out with this type of jurnos forever!

    You seem to have some complaints about the 100days, I will get you do a 100 days project and put out the out come of it when the duration has passed. Project is, if you have a printer, just print this article and keep under your pillow. And when you wake up in the morning every day just read the heading of the article only- it is not that hard. Let me know when do you stop reading or kept on reading until the 100days passed or extended it to 6 months as the trio did.

    Ranil’s Days – Including 100 Plus – Are Over

    H. L. D. Mahindapala the Worzel Gummidge:

    Ranils 100 Plus Days Might be over but are you suggesting that the THGUs Millenuim is about to begin.
    You are absolutelt right and as sooon as the UN report is out the THUG will be looking into the barrel of a Gun.

    As for Ranil the clue is in your heaading. The word is PLUS. The voters have no chioce but to elect him to save the Nation from carrying ” Pichai Pathiram”

    1) Not all the flak thrown at them has dented their mass appeal. They represent the irremovable, indispensable and irreversible historic forces which no politician aspiring for power can ignore. They represent the grass root forces that spring back, time and again, particularly in times of crisis, to regain and reassert their lost power and place. At a time like this when the very identity of the nation is under siege by foreign and local enemies, the logic of overwhelming history will invariably drive the emerging forces to align with nationalist Mahinda Rajapaksa. In some electorates pockets of minority voters too are likely to stand by Mahinda Rajapaksa.

    *** The above is very interesting and sounds like some PORNOGRAPHIC CRAP and no doubt there is a majority of 5.8 Million sex starved Racists will buy it. The THUG is flying through Tutbulence and the Small Pockets will not be very comfortable and could bring the 747 down. Or with the UN report will be forced to make an emergency landing in the HAGUE.

    2) Clearly, Mahinda Rajapaksa has scored his first victory in the coming battle against Wickremesinghe. Plain citizen Mahinda Rajapaksa has proved that he is a force far greater than Wickremesinghe holding the Prime Minister’s post. Mahinda Rajapaksa has proved that power lies not in the seats of the Cabinet, or in the links to Delhi and Washington, but in the highways and byways which leads all the way to Medamulana.

    *** Do you know that mines have been planted by RAW, MS and RW along these Highways and Byways and more worryingly inside the Tilets so that when you go to piss you will end up with body parts.
    That will be the end of the THUGS civilisation.

    FREEDOM come FREEDOM go
