      If he is an idiot, there will be no words to call your god father. Basta.

      All these will be for a temporary period only. That you will see guys. They are both doing all this to get issues done. That is the culture lankens have been happier with.. that will nto be killed within a year or two. You will see, their strategies will succeed almost everything on their plan. Having visited Germany Recently, Mr Sirisena become very close to them and their politics. At the time, Dr Merkel started her trip withinthe nation, her former called her ” Lass die Dorfkirche in Dorf – meaning ” dont overestimate” – this was since she was the first female leader as Bundeskanzellerin.That was no familiar to man dominated german politics. But today- they are all under her… even European UNION poweful constituents keep silent before her -making her the most powerful in EU. All these are due to SPD-CDU government.

        leelage, that basta maraya was / is not my godfather. I say Sirisena is an idiot because he should have finished maraya off that night on January 9 2015 when it was evident he was in the process of carrying out a coup d’etat. And what has Idiot Sirisena been doing for the last one year and 3 months with all the serious frauds of the [Edited out] family having already come to light? He should first of all have established one fraud for which he could have jailed him for 5 years minimum and then investigated and completed investigation of all other crimes and jailed him for 100 life-terms. Sirisena is an idiot without a shadow of any doubt. If you want to do dickplay with Sirisena that’s fine with me. But dont ask me to molly coddle him. Fool.

        FT Editors: Politicians feeding each other is a great image of the Political CORRUPTION-collaboration.

        Politicians of all Parties are working together to get FAT – literally feeding themselves with impunity and NO ACCOUNTABILITY – while the masses stave and inequality and poverty grows as the rupee crashes and the National Debt mounts in Lanka.

        Long live the corrupt politicians who feed each other in the Miracle of Modayas!

      Mr. President

      Can you make me the Minister for Pissu Ministry?? Or Minister for Angoda Or Minister of Welikade?
      I don’t mind anything just make me one.
      I will be happy with the pay and just one car and a bodyguard , I need not be greedy since the country had been Bankrupted by your friend , I know the situation.

      My friend too is interested in another Minister Post As I notice you need to make at least half the Srilankan population to enter into Politics and join you in the Parliament .
      It will be good for you and good for the country too Sir!!!!

      I will be very honest and too a very obedient Minister.
      I like your humble ways , I too very much like eating Kiributh like you eat in public fed by another muppet being photographed , this kind of peculiar behaviours only happens in our land of hippocrites!!!!!

    This is the most advanced nation in Asia. It has so much going on. There are hundreds of development projects that have been initiated and commenced since Yahapaalanaya began. USA has so far donated over 5 Billion dollars as grants; USAID is no longer dumping unSaleable US technology but giving free computers and free sarees and free deMining.

    There is a new set of Volkswagen engines in a museaum and public toilets in Kotte in a brand new park called DeSilvaUdyanaya where young men and women and gay couples can freely roam.

    India has so far donated 7.8 Billion US dollars. A new highway from Polonnaruwa to Jaffna to give thanks to Minorities who voted for Ranil is now 1/3 completed in under one year.

    Ranil has secured 34.5Billion Dollars in grants, loans and cash from China. There will be new port in Matara called MangalGeyrights port. There is a new airport being constructed in Jaffna, and Nuwara Eliya and there is a new highway from Colombo to Anuradhapura that is nearly 30% completed; it will be called the Daham way

    There is a highspeed train project started by Sajith in Hambantota that will be linked to Arugam Bay and Kattankudy.

    There is no more power outages unlike Rajapakse days.

    All Gay men in the cabinet have become straight and renounced homosexuality and lesbianism and lesbians married to gay men. They have all adopted Born Again Evangelical Christianity. There is now a minister for heterosexual enforcement along with ministers for buddhism, christianity, a new Assembly of god minister, a muslim and now a minister for aethism too.

    All is well. WE have 2,500 plus years of civilization that needs protection. That is the only reason we have such a large cabinet. We are the most dynamic society in Asia. That needs smart men and women as ministers.

    What is extra 2or 3 when Sira has 90 already lead by Batalda.

    But the more he appoints more the Country gets fucked up…

    As some one pointed out earlier ,the last quarter growth was barely 2.5 percent

    .Last 4 consecutive days of of selling by foreign investors has totalled over USD 250 Million at the CSX.

    Does it say something about our Yahaplana Economy ?

    But Bidhi is all out to change our inhabitants according to latest speech.

    He say no insults, curses or booing will change his mind to change us.

    Obviously he is not changing anything where the changes are needed.

    That is the poor rural Sinhala Buddhist inhabitants in the main.

    Security of the nation is at risk besides its Economy being fuckked up.

    Basic staples are getting more and more expensive with the Dollar reaching LKR 150 .

    May be Sira has changed Batalanda Ranil for him to go begging from the Chinese to keep the high living off the of that Yahaplana suckers who have even dodged LKR 72000 Million in Taxes with the help of The Finance Minister Galleon Ravi.

      For once you are right. We have seen it in the previous 10 years. This is nothing new nor will it end tomorrow.

      Keep hope alive, one day MR too would be offered a job.

        Yes, nothing has or will be learnt by this
        generation of politicians,administrators,
        lawmen etc.

        So no point us pulling our hair out.

        Maybe things will be different in a couple of

        “What the fuck are you complaining about? Mara had 122 ministers including the Minister of Sugar Industries.”

        Mara and his gang swindled $18 billion according to Mangala. Would you like Sirisena match the score?

        BTW is the “F word” your middle name?

          NV,

          My question was directed to Mr Sumanasekara in an attempt to have a go at his remark of “country gets fucked up”. However, I am amazed by your first question. I would have thought that being one of the earliest settlers you had already figured out the political figures in the island. Whatever Mangala says you need to take it with a pinch of salt. When did he make that statement? Has he provided any proof? Perhaps, Panama leaks might help him.

    The Govt. brags about a transparent govt. and can the President please advise the public , the following.

    1. The total amount of money spent on ministers, junior ministers, state ministers , their perks & security, office rents & expenses and payment to their staff plus petrol & sundries.

    2. The total amount of money wasted and continue to waste in US dollars
    on Sri Lankan airlines and Mihin air and maintenance of Mattala airport
    and Hambantota port.

    3. The total amount of money spent on excess armed forces personnel, doing nothing during peace time but getting the full pay. It is estimated that there are around 300,000 armed personnel on active
    service and half of them should be put on volunteer service and given
    employment in new govt. projects.

    The colossal waste on above will amount to at least 1/3 of govt. expenses and will have serious effect on our micro economy. The Govt. should take a serious effort to cut down the expenses on above and not increase it. It is heartwarming to note that the govt. is engaged in major projects like building roads and houses for the poor but should be mindful of the debts incurred. We already owe China lot of money taken as loans during the previous regime and the Govt. should take austerity measures and spend only on essentials. Its good news that this govt. is able to get grants from several countries due to their alliances with democratic forces and they should make good use of it for meaningful projects, not like building an intn’l airport in a desert,and all people should benefit by it in all areas of the country.

    It’s funny politics or silly politics; How shall we describe it?

    To my knowledge the beginning was during Jayawardene era when he appointed a minister for coconut industries; separating coconut from the plantation industries minister.

    Following that example, today we have many, many ministries and ministers that people even can’t understand the functions of separate bodies.

    With the rising of the number of MPs the top faced new challenges to maintain power base and may be to hide corruption and mal-practices.

    To add insult to injury provincial councils were also given forcefully (except for north-East) creating more opportunities for culprits.

    People want to stop it, it’s time that a new constitution is also in the offing.

    Do we really want this number of MPs in the parliament? In 1970 we had just over 100 MPs. With the advancement of technology MPs can communicate fast and easily with people.

    Good highway net work as well to reach people quickly.

    Though the population has doubled its good to have least number of MPs so things will be easy for the leadership and the people and we can divert more resources for development.

    MS after become President since 2015 January 9th of he did nothing for the country economic development ,but he misused power of authority an appointment of 96 Minister in current Cabinet that larger ever in since Our Democratic Republic..Parliament of Minister become rich and burden has lied on Public account by act of MS foolishness.

    1 UNP Ranil W… been Primer only 44 seats in Parliament by MS after been elected of President. Needless to say First time minority party leader become Primer in history in Sri Lankan may be world!

    2 Removed Chief Justice Mohan Peiries by President Executive power and appoint Sharini Banadarake and removed her and appointment
    Sri Pavan as CJ of Supreme court. Just ignored simple procedure of appoints of Judges in court in law.

    3 Now increased an appointment of 96 Ministers in Cabinet by President.

    4 Defeated members of SLFPs of Parliament 13, has been appoint into Parliament by National list MPs by President of SLFP leader by MS.

    5 Misused President funds and spending lavishly for Parties and Public political ceremonies of Tax payers Money and travelling huge number of delegation in Foreign countries with family members.
    The Country economic in mess and there is so many uncertainties and instability in politically and economically , but President used for unnecessary expenses that against people consent..

    6 MS is building large President house for his in Colombo 7, without using existing President Place in Fort Colombo. Wast of Billions of Rupees of Tax payers money for his high level of living has no accountability to the people of SL by MS ?

    MS key problems is he has no democratic accountability Parliament or any political party or judiciary or to the People of Sri lanka.
    He is working in FREE HAND on advice of Ranil W…and CBK : by the jungle laws Over last 16 months, however he is barrier to power of democracy and system of democracy weakened at fast pace in short period of 16 months.

    Currently MS, Ranil W… and CBK three in -one more easily undermined national politics, business, war, Buddhist religion and other areas will show the cause underlying this phenomenon are related not only to demographic and economic transformations ,but also to political changes and profound shifts in expectations of values and social norms has been gradually disappear in politics of democracy in Sri Lanka.

    Politicians change their personality to suit the occasion, MR had more than 108 ministers to get his way, including enacting 18A whereby to enable him to contest presidential election any number of times and become a dictator. But he lost his 3rd presidential election to Srisena. Now t’s MS’s tern to play politics. He also woos MPs from MR’s camp that prepares itself to form a breakaway SLFP/UPFA. If MR is successful in breaking SLFP/UPFA he can stop investigation of his misdeeds including corruptions and money laundering.
    MS can only get indulged in dirty politics in order to stop MR getting his hand into power and protects all wrong doers and guarantees impunity to murderers.
