‘Read My Body Language’ – Maithri Tells SLFP MPs

Although the SLFP’s parliamentary group has unanimously decided to support the no confidence motion brought by the Joint Opposition against Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, the blessings of the party leader, President Maithripala Sirisena, is yet to be obtained according to SLFP sources.

When a group of SLFP MPs met with Sirisena this morning, Vijith Vijithamuni Soysa had asked him what his position is, to which Sirisena had replied, ‘read my body language; don’t you understand that this government has to continue?’

Subsequently at today’s Cabinet meeting Nimal Siripala Silva had conveyed the position of the SLFP parliamentary group to Wickremesinghe, urging him to resign before the no-confidence motion is taken up for debate tomorrow (4th).

Since Wickremesinghe has not agreed, the group had decided to meet President Sirisena again to finalize the course of action the party would take on the matter.

      don’t you understand that this government has to continue?

      If we are not reborn, we have never seen a body langauge of the guy ever.

      Ranil is a pigeon among cats in lanken politics. Yakage widiyata wimane hadanna ona. means, people are corrupted and highly abusive and uncivilized. So are the politicians.
      He is a talented person but lankens give him no chances.

      If not Ranil, things would have ended up in mess by today. Rajapakshe the mass murderer of th enation was about to be caught by hague.
      If this govet was not built, bugger would have been caught. But the govt has been clever at every levels to show the world, that we have not had war crimes, thought it should have .. looking back.

      OC,

      I want Ranil to lose. …….. Just for people to find out. ………… Now, all the crooks from the president down are blaming Ranil for all the ills ………. when he is gone who are they going to blame?

      Ranil is grossly unsuitable for Lankan politics.

      In the Lankan context ……….. Ranil is like an alien from an advanced civilization who has landed among a remote Amazonian jungle tribe with an insular jungle culture/society that has been in place for yonks to survive a specific jungle-habitat ……… and doesn’t need anything more ………….

      He is paying the price for ………. trying to user in modernity to the primitives ……. albeit in his own foolish ham-fisted bungling way ………..


      The trick is to, pretend you are one of the primitives …….. that’s the game Rajapakses and SLFP/JO and some in the UNP play ………. the Rajapakses pretend they are great Sinhala-Buddhists but where did he send the kids to give a “Sinhala-Buddhist cultural” education? :)) …….. Even the guy from the South who used to snatch chains …….. has kids in SATIM (whatever the private Med school) …….. they all know which side their bread is buttered ……… :))

      If you watched TV …….. the old, the feeble, the invalid ……… went in large numbers to vote for the Rajapakses ………. they can’t blame anyone else but themselves ………

      Their fate won’t be any different to other primitive cultures that couldn’t change with the times ………and tried to remain the same ……… Visit any primitive culture around the world – Aborigines, Native-Indians, Inuit, Pygmies, ……….. – how they have got totally smothered and obliterated ………… begging for alms and putting on “cultural shows” is no way to survive with dignity ………… but if you don’t have the smarts that’s one’s fate!

      Teach your children well ………….

      If not one will end up like Dayan (sorry Dayan, nothing personal ……. but you are the best Lankan example :)) ) ……….. putting on “cultural shows” to entertain the elites/low-lives in power …..

      Old codger:
      Can’t agree more. Not only is there “no spine,” there is a total lack of principle of any description. But then wasn’t it a case of clutching at straws when the population at large chose to support an “opposition candidate” who broke bread/hoppers with his leader only to betray him a matter of hours later?
      What happened in 2015 was a necessary historical event and it is now up to the people of this land to effect yet another course correction.

        The course correction will be contingent on the ethnic mistrust! The Sinhala people are susceptible to emotive sentiments in terms of their alleged endangered security. MR is the man who can save them! Who can blame them when both Britain and the US were swayed by similar populist sentiments!

        Yes, another course of correction?

        How do you know that the new course of correction is better or worse than the current course, when the mean IQ of the populace is 79, and most of the politicians are crooks?

      This is an exercise conducted to bring in the next GOVIGAMA RULING ELITE FAMILY MAFIA member, the Psychopathic Mass Murderer, Super Day Light Robber GOTAbhaya into the government. The GOVI brethren RANIL and MAITHREE cannot do anything without killing this government, the so called good governance promise they fakely gave to the public must be destroyed before anything to move to protect their Rajapakse brethren. This must be also the plan of the deep state which controlling everything from behind the scenes. With the backing of the WEST (Jew controlled Zionist countries) , they will do what they like, what the people dislike always, the destruction of the country. IMF/ World Bank are the real owners of this shitty country as the GOVI Mafia is been appointed by them as Managers who run it with an IRON FIST in their usual FASCIST style. Buddhism as a tool and the puppet Mahanayakes rendering support to any fascist move by these psycopathic criminal Govi lot is a reality that the majority is unkown of.

      “Can a person without a spine have body language?”

      How did wheelchair bound Prof Stephen Hawking manage most of his life? Technology driven tools helped him to communicate though he lost his voice long ago.

      However, it seems crooks, murderers, racists …… have been driving Sirisena from backseat.

      Do you think you ought to have his job? If you are a honest man, I believe you are then of course you won’t last more than a few hours.

    Nimal Siripala Silva is dreaming. Nothing can shake Ranil. Parliamentarians knew that people are with Ranil at this crucial hour. This no-confident motion against Ranil is a sign of frustration of the SLFPers.

    Through the NCM, a conman and a joker is in the making; he is non other ‘him’ only.. We wonder and ponder as to what the JVP’s stand is going to be. Other than that, these body language talks and ‘we have not taken decision yet’ by TNA are fodder for the media. Enormous amount of propaganda work is being carried out by a media vulture by the name of ‘SIRASA’. Every word from their mouth is venomous and scathing attack on UNP.
    What kind of media ethics they follow? Very ugly by any standard.
    Anyhow, whatever the outcome of the motion, there would be short term and long term repercussion in all front in the country.

    Options for him

    Resign & avoid defeat in NCM – president wants it as he’ll be comfortable only in this situation.
    Not resign & win NCM – president doesn’t want it
    Not resign & accept defeat in NCM – president doesn’t want it

    So he insists 1st one

    Once ‘Simple Sira’ has no idea of giving up the Presidency even in 2020. For him to continue he needs the support of RW as MR will take revenge on MS. So the body language of MS is not to support the NCM.

    I am not sure if the Speaker or any one else for that matter is clear on how the Parliament should be formed after the NCM voting. Those who are on either side of the NCM will have interpretations based on their political strategy. The reason being, the NCM last para clearly says its against Ranil and the GOVERNMENT. Hence if NCM passes the Government stands dissolved. But as per the 19th Amendment the Govt cannot be dissolved. This creates an issue to the Speaker. In my opinion the Speaker should inform the Parliament tomorrow that he cannot proceed with the NCM until he gets the opinion of the Supreme Court (full bench) as the NCM brings about a constitutional crisis.

    Tenekumbara Mosque converted to poya day Temple by Rifvy Mufti .
    ——–+——;-

    It has been reported that The whole of Kandy district Muslims requested Rivy Mufti to permit Pirith on poya days in all Kandy ,including Digana area mosques in return to not attack their businesses and The first pirith was recited with and

    some displaying their backs towards the Khabah .the first mosque is suppose to be in Tenekumbera

    The practice is suppose to be a compromise arrived by all Kandy district Muslims in return to guarantee for the protection of their business entities.

    Some Sinhalese Buddhist are suspicious about the motive ,while the hardcore Extremist Buddhists consider this as a huge victory and believes such attacks Islandwide may humble and desipiline the entire Muslim.

    Rest of the Muslims feel kandy Muslims betrayed them for selfish reasons

      Converting Mosques to Buddhist temples only on poya day is not enough. All Mosques in Sri Lanka must be converted into Buddhist temples. Then the sweet sounding and mind calming Bana and Dhammadesana will bring peace in the country by replacing Islamic preaching which is leading Muslims to misdeeds.

    Ranil is the only politician we can place our trust on based on his political maturity, liberal attitudes and genuine love for the country.Surely bond scam is a scar on his decision making.However, anyone can make mistakes.Ranill too is not an exception.But the whole country knows he is not corrupted.Besides, compared to the names being proposed for replacement none can match his calibre as a politician and leader.The people gave a mandate in the last general election and that is still valid and need to be honoured.President too should not bend to pressure from corrupted elements from his own party.We, Sri Lankans, have a short memory for all things happened around us in the not so distant past.Only God can save us.

Can any one including UNP and the minority races ever trust the President Sirisena again? Which means there is no confidence on the President. What a state he has brought Sri Lanka to.

    He just lets down everybody; starting with the man who ensured his victory and ascent to power.

    As I understand it, many investors are moving their investments out of the country.

    Who invests in an unstable country?

    Sirisena has a lot to answer for these sad developments.

    “Read my body language”. In other words “Don’t you understand?”. Still better “Why do you want to ask and embarrass me?”. It is pretty clear, all this is to create a scene within the politics of domination. “Appachchi Malo” types want clear instructions and perhaps on time, to play whatever role he is expected to play, like an actor who has to be provided with the lines. But MY3 is much sharper for that. He too is playing his cat and mouse game and it will go on till the last moment. I don’t think any nation can boast horse trading to this level in politics. Good for Sri Lanka, for it can setup an International school in dirty politics.

    If Maithripala sirisena is to survive as a PResident for the second time, He needs to get rid of Ranil by NCM or by firing. Because, Ranil did not leave when he was asked to, people think that PENT HOUSE RAVI is not arrested, Foot note gang is still ministers, Ranil is still PM and that means that Maithripala Sirisena’s govt is a JOKE.
