        Sirisena is a typical Sri Lankan politician.

        There are traits common to all politicians all over the world.

        There are some traits common only to Lankan politicians.

        Can any of you guys name a single exemplary Lankan politician in the country’s entire history? For 70 years we haven’t had one …….. do you expect one without Lankan traits to fall down from the sky? Are we all just marking time till the messiah’s arrival? Is there hope?

        The only guy I can think of was not a politician but a political figure who had the appropriate reaction to the misdeeds of pols ………… my eternal favourite good ol’ Velupillai Prabakarn. What a guy! My only regret is that he was not a Singhalese …….. if he were, we wouldn’t have all the Sinhalese crook-politicians we have today. They would all be six feet underground pushing up daisies. We would have had only one bastard to deal with ……… then again Prabakaran was a honest principled guy ……… well, one might not like his principles but that’s an entirely different shindig. He was straight and honest.

        Has the thought ever occurred to any of ye majoritarians that Tamils always end up saving the Sinhalese from the Sinhalese?

        This time it was the Tamils and the Muslims who saved the Sinhalese from the Sinhalese! Don’t ye think that a little thanks/gratitude is in order? A wee little bit?

        Or, which one of you have a grudge against the minorities ……. cause this time they spoiled your particular side’s plot? Shall we drag some Tamils out and burn them? Shall we go and attack Muslim women and children in their homes? I say, it’s almost about time for a another good ol’ pogrom! Hard to keep this blood-lust down; the religions don’t help. First let me take care of my blood-craving then I’ll go and make peace with the religions.

          You may be right.
          .
          But lanken politicians in the past incl. BALLIGE PUTHA Rajakshe did not violate it the way SIRISESENA does it. Sirisena acts like a bull in china shop. He has not the least respect towards OWN voters. THat is more than punishable act to my eye. People s anger would never be gone down. People simly hate him that much … that is no good but there is no other choice
          :
          He does not care, – people further tolerate his actions, people are made to believe, he could do good things too., but tell us one good sort of things the man has delivered sofar .
          .
          Even EU leaders like Cameron did mistakes but he immediately resign ( after Brexit Referandum, though it has left all the mess in that country since then, now they ve been planning to hold an another referendum).- THE GREATEER difference is our people fool around the people and stuck to power even after doing the them. These people , i have no idea though so called buddhists, just abuse their office as they have no feelings.
          .
          If MS-MR woudl have been in EU, they both should have been jailed for the COUP they both architected on the 26 Oct 2018.
          .
          People are made blind for ever as nothing CAN help them for any cure.
          .
          Astrology, sociery tricks and several other factors may be the reasons people to allow TOLERATE all these.

            Sam Fernando, You have served too much on your plate. I wish to get to it, bur before that, I need to know how honest and candid you are as a person. So, here is a test for me to find that out. You said that Rajapaksa did not violate it the way Sirisena does. Did you say that just for arguments sake or do you sincerely believe in what you said?

              Thappu hami,

              what i meant is both are number one rogues, but Rajakashe did violate not to the manner now the incumbent has been upto.
              Just imagine, court verdict put him down as nothing can help rise up… but the bugger keeps on hurting newly appointed ministers.
              And again, even if the bugger is not allowed to keep ministry of law and order, but he does. Where on earth the bugger get the right to continue ?
              Why people stay mum further as if they are helpless ?
              I think if parliament fails to do so, JANABALAYA should come up and stone the bugger until he finally leaves pres position.

            Sorreeeeeee to have hurt your delicate feelings pal !

            At least I didn’t have to change my name from Jim Softy to JD to hide my former IQ!

            That says a lot; isn’t it? :))

            Man, why did your stellar IQ prevent you from naming yourself Jay-Z instead of JD …….. then you’ll be bedding Beyoncé ! …… finally you would’ve found the happiness that has eluded you your entire life !


            “You are an Idiot.”

            You got that one right buddy! How can I not be? After all I’m Lankan! ……… I admire your cocksure certainty!

            “The best lack all conviction, while the worst
            Are full of passionate intensity.” :))

            “And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
            Slouches towards Buddhist-Sinhalesedom to be born?”

            Have a Merry fundamental Buddhist Christmas, friend ….. and your New Year be as happy as the last one.

            Have a few Buddhist-eggnogs, that’ll put you right; you should know how to make them ….. if not, you can buy them in the store.


            btw ….. are you all alone this festive season in Alberta surrounded by Christians? We’ve a place in Canmore……. can see the Three Sisters from all the windows ……. I can get all three to wear miniskirts if that gets ye in the right mood.

        The Executive Presidency is the cancer that is destroying Sri Lanka. This cancer can be diagnosed more specifically as Leukemia as it is draining away the lifeblood of our country. Unless and until the E.P. is abolished the cancer will remain and irrevocably transform our beloved motherland into a Failed State.

        But if you would find it at the initial stages, is curable of course depending on the type of cancer.
        .
        Lanken society is almost like a metastasized cancer -meaning it has spread all over body so cure is not sure. – society is eroded to all depths. And lanken culture is also akin to an icing cover of an spoilt cake. Buddhism is being abused even by high criminals.
        .
        Best example is Rajakashe himself – He visits temples to send the message across that he is that buddhist, but his abusive nature – took the island nation in all anxities, by having abused the hard up state -c reating a situation frying pan to hearth.
        .
        Jan to mid of the year – 2019, like or not, believe or not, the mountaineous sums of debts accumulated over the years to be paid off – the huge sums making up zto 7000 Million US dollars
        .
        All expertise should be applied to austerity every rupee to face the debts problems, but Rajkashes did not care about anything but abuse COUNTRY s helicopters for his travels also within colombo – is that morally right ? We dont mind if he is HERNIA sick, he should undergo OPs and become healthy, but to abuse the state funds for travels and unnecessary BIG ceremonies on the costs of STATE ?

      On his return from THAI MASSAGE CLINIC, first he has to bring before us is his bill and how much the state had to bear as his bill for this tour.
      .
      We as citizens of this country would not want to pay his bills any more since he is proved to be unconstitutional by RECENT COURT verdict.
      :
      This is very important, as reliable sources reveal we the nation have to tranfser over 1000 million of US dollars in January 2019 itself, as the first installment of RAJAKAHSE huge loans (60% of debts that the country should pay backl during 2009 are coming from mismanagement of Rajakshe).

        Let s see how many of the media would raise this wthin the country:
        :
        Sirisena still keeps the LAW AND Ord er for him even if CONSTITUTION would not allow him to do so ? Who would ask him to be constitutional here ? .
        :
        Why we have been made helpless today with the stupid actions being carried on by this stupid man ?
        .
        When would he ever sense it ?
        :
        Divine forces, you may the only way to clear this nobody else, but never forget his twin brother -Mahinda Jarapakshe in his crimes, done and being done even today.

      Parliament,

      Do you have confidence in President who attempted an Illegal and unconstitutional coup, and got the police and the media institutions under him?

      Please initiate impeachment proceeding against Sirisena, and start abolishing the executive presidency that produced madman like Sirisena, presciently predicted by the late Dr N M Perera in 1978.

    UNP should go to courts and also should bring an impeachment against him before he play more idiotic games. As per the 19th ammendment he cannot keep government print as it is not related to defence, mahaweli or even emvironment ( he may get away with police department as it may be able to consider as defence related ). He seems to be keep on violating the constitution andbtrying to forcefully keep media underhim with his henchmen

      Innocent poor unpers ,what unpers can do , the slfp and their business class never let any one to rule this country and poor peoples party like unp or JVP. When mahinda took oath as priminister on october 26 the all srilankan media which are owned by srilankan no slfp business class stop their top rating tele dramas and gave live TV telecast ,when Ranil gave oath they didn’t care or not giving any validity .when mahinda became priminister on the same night all the top level police officers were at nahindas residence but when Ranil became priminuster and unp came to power even a police constable is respecting them. This society is like that . slfp are super powers and entire owners of srilankan business class and media and upper middle class and muddle class , the party like unp and JVP may be the parties poor’s and labours but the society please mind they are also srilankan citizens. The society and government mechanism please give at least 1% respect to unp that you are giving to slfp and their business class. We know unp is economic management failures and idiots and slfp is the architectects and masterbrains in this 80 billion business economy of srilanka, we know you will not get rich life style under unp governments like under slfp governments but remind one thing the democracy of this country is in srilanka because of the poor peoples party like unp and JVP. Clearly keep that in mind

        Actually business people are most of the time are unp ( in past people use to say when unp comes to power people have more money ) people but during last three years, they had a hard time with how yahapalanata functioned. Also they didnt do anything to tackle media owned by heroin dealers, thugs, murderers, bookie owners.

          That was the idiotic story ever created in srilanka it was also created by government media by unp when they are in power that is unp good for business and unp comes under unp government people has money. When unp was in power during 1977- 1994 the economic size of srilankan economy was only less than 15 billion USD and per capital was 800 USD. This srilankan economic size was less than Somalian economic size. Under 15 billion USD economy how a country can form a business class or create business or people have money while per capital is only 800 USD. The people like Jr , premadasa lalith, gamini or any one in unp done some thing good for agriculture for business and economic management a party unp unable to uplift their economy at least up to 15 billion USD even less than Somalian economy can be only considered as economic management idiots. Unp crate a story stating they are good for business and people has money under their government is a bulshit and well planely spread bulshit lie to hide their incapability and idiot ness of economic management. On those days pettah welanthos are main business class in srilanka they are mostly Tamil and Muslim and they loved unp for some other reasons and unp said the business people are with them. When slfp took this government in 2005 the srilankan economy was only 20 billion USD and per capital was only 1000 USD . slfp of mahinda converted this economy in to 80 billion USD business economy and per capital in to 3800 billion USD in just 10 years.

            The slfp, they are the people created this huge 80 billion business culture and high ranking business class , co operate segment , blue chip companies every thing in srilanka after 2005, this business class is one and only high ranking business class ever formed in srilanka. This high ranking business class are die heart supporters of mahinda and slfp they are controling more than 65% of srilankan economy. If you want to see this business class of srilanka and slfp just watch gotabayas viyathmaga convention 2018. We can’t compare thus high ranking business class of slfp with unps one only business class pettah welantha prajawa. In srilanka the entire high ranking business class owns by single slfp ,this business class and their media treating the poor labourors party like unp in a very bad manner. We know if unp comes they can’t give rich life style to srilankan upper middle class and middle class like slfp governments . that is why this middle class are die heart supporters of slfp and mahinda. This is the reason slfp is winning kaduwela, Homagama and kesbawa ,Maharagama, electorates by 50000 majority votes. Unp normally considered a idiots of economic management but remind one thing because of poor parties like unp and JVP the democracy of srilanka is still there. The unps usual business class of pettah welanthos can not be compared with huge high ranking English speaking business class of slfp.

    Is their any leader who has worked near to Gamarala ? Yes, and he was Mahinda MafiaRajaakshe.
    :
    But MR too was somewhat shy to abuse the office.
    .
    Surprisingly, Sirsena has no shame, nor shyness to go for any unconstitutional acts. Nor would he care if even entire world would make him the last laughing stock.:
    :
    This man should be prisoned for his rest of life for all these huge betrayals.

Hopper Sira is undergoing stressors namely, loss of independence, loss of sense of purpose and productivity. loss of memory, deterioration of physical abilities and chronic illness, worrying about institutionalization etc. Sillysena should keep away from Mahinda Rajafucksha and his cronies if he is seeking specialized medical care and attention.

    Now that the Police is under M3, its his duty to bring those “paga kings” before the courts. If M3 fails to do that then it would be the proof we all were looking to confirm that he is the one who has been protecting the Rajapakse family. Similarly if he does not investigate the accusations against his Daughter, Son in Law and Brother, once again we will get to know he is the one who is protecting the crooks. Similarly he also should ensure legal actions against the Yahapalana Govt rogues as well.

    MS went along with the infamous 26 October ‘removal’ and the ‘crisis’ that followed. He was assured that MR will be confirmed. That was not to be. The price of fence-jumpers went sky-high. There is a lesson here.
    .
    Why keep 43 institutions directly under him? He needs trustworthy Lankans to head them. Can he find 43?
    Technically as President, he can oversee every institution. Without any direct control, if he checks and balances, he will be able to project an image of a ‘Benevolent President’.

    Agriculture minister tht Maithripala appointed had a very good vision and it looked he could do that. HARRISON is an IDIOt. He doe snot know what do to. He says, that every person should eat 43 lbs of Fish a year. Upcountry people are not getting their quota. so, he asked officlas to increase the fish production in the Lower country. IDIOT doe snot know that COW’s Milk, BUFFALO milk also can do the same function.Those days when Sinhale people were not eating BEEF, they had milk and CURD which replaced the animal protein requirement.
    Ranil this time also appointed some FINACIAL FRAUDSTERS to the PArliament. One woman who gave RS @ million FAKE notes to the bank for depositing did not know that she was carrying FAKE notes. How can one believe it.
    People says, Ranil appointed one MP each for each media outlet. MR knows details.
    Muslim Director General for SLBA says he doe snot know anything artistic except Muslim Drama. What I do is everything MANGALA says.

    Police is now under New King. He may be able to hold up the investigations. If the Coup was about saving the families and them from local law suits, they still didn’t lose the coup. But it will be only for one more year. But that would be not being a problem either. The good chance is after one year Ranil will be coming. That is where the police force will be kept under in the box forever. If there is one JR in UNP now, Old King and New King will face what Sirimavo faced after 1977. But that is not the reality.
    In the last government the Police was kept under Old King. After many organized murders, by the pressure of Western diplomats to make it under independent commission, he released it to Law and Order ministry. But now New King has taken it over again. The regime change West enforced from Old King to King now has backfired at lease on the positive achievement made on Police Department.
    We had talked about the regime change many times in CT. It was only regime change, no culture, no customs, no habits or even behavioral change took place. So for many commentators of CT, “Akkarai Maddukku Ikkarai Pachchai”. (For the cow on the other side of the river, this side land is greener.) So many are praising Old King and even more are praising Ranil or New King as better.
    After regime change, many times, Undersecretary Nisha Biswas and State Secretary John Kerry offered many types of help to Yahapalanaya to put the things to normal perspective. Neither New King nor Ranil took the American’s hand. Ranil took the opportunity of last summer speech at Oxford to sharply censure the West. In 2016 July, when New King met Kerry at UNGA meeting, he said that it was Old King blocking any advancement. But with this Coup, New King brought Old King to shield him from West.

    In November 2016 Hilary lost the election. Kerry released about the spending he made to get the Appe Aanduwa on democratic track. He said Rangoon and Ceylon had progressed a lot on democracy by his efforts. But we wrote in CT that Secretary Kerry misunderstanding the problem in Lankawe. Lankawe goes to Voluntary dictatorship for only to keep Tamils under their jackboot. Myanmar was taken over by army by a military coup. That dictatorship is much different from what is in Lankawe. So regime change has a good change to change the Myanmar government. But in Lankawe, from 1948, almost with all elections the governments changed, but the Appe Aanduwas’ Aappa diplomacy didn’t. Here in Lankawe, even after an open Constitutional Coup, UNP is not willing to go Court against New King. Not just Ranil, even Sampanthar has given his promises to New King not to punish him in Court. That is why CT commentators are debating whether firing SC justices and taking Law and Order in their hand to justify all their crimes or going with expressed impunity and carrying constitutional coup not caring the justices is more serious fascism. The choice is more than between “known devil and unknown angel”, but “between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea”. These are guys sleep in the dark cemetery, not intimidated by the Black Coat devils sleep in the Hulftsdorp.

    President Sirisena is correct as all the problems created in this country during the last 3 to 4 years by Ranil Samanala Wickramasinghe, Even after the Supreme Court decision, the President shall declare a Referendum on dissolution of parliament rather than simply accepting the Supreme court decision on sovereign right of the people for elections and voting.

    1) By emptying Central Bank and other commercial banks.
    2) by entering in to Trade agreements detrimental to the country.
    3) creating Communal problems in kandy, ampara and digana areas.
    4) Enacting Office of missing persons to pay compensation to LTTE terrorists and kith and kin.
    5) Instructed to draft a constitution to break the country in to 8 provinces almost eight governments and North/East as Orumiththanadu.
    6) Worshiping Western Embassies rather than believing in people of the country.
    7) Heavy tax burden to people.
    8) Ever increasing cost of living.
    9) Totally unsuitable economic policies.
    10) Selling of critical resources of country to foreigners or companies and even future acts to selling land to foreigners outright.

    People of Sri Lanka shall ot forget these policies thus President Sirisena had to remove him from PM to save the country.

      3) creating Communal problems in kandy, ampara and digana areas.

      .
      These communula problems and the riots inflicted in Durga city in the high days of ballige putha Rajaksahe, were the cruel acts of Rajakashe men, as President as the minster of defence confirmed to the nation few weeks ago during those 52 day crisis inthe country island.
      .
      4) Enacting Office of missing persons to pay compensation to LTTE terrorists and kith and kin.
      .
      These are just attacks being made to tarnish UNPrs by abusive RAJAKAHSES men. THere is no truths in them.

      Part II
      :
      6) Worshiping Western Embassies rather than believing in people of the country.

      .
      This has NOT been the case, but witHOUT IC you cant achieve anything. We are an another poor nation to the world, without loans and aids being given to us, we cant run anything in this country, but ballige putha Rajakashe led groups may feel that we are JEWs or the like rich folks. but the reality as it is .. western world would nto not even where our country is located… they dont have such invasive interests as being branded by SCHOOL drop outs of Wimal ponnawanse nature. You cant fool the nation on and on, they will not be ready to get misled any more.
      .
      7) Heavy tax burden to people.

      How would the loans be settled if TAXeS WOULD not be introduced ? over 60% of loans to be covered during 2019, are the ones that Rajakashes took loans in the guise of lanken R and D, but significant portions of them went to their pockets during those ill fated adminsitration and allegations are levelled at them on and on, court cases are too filed.. .. however, the any govt coming to power have to take more loans to cover the previous loans if TAX woudl no not have been made … taxes are part of citizen s rights in EU countries… germans pay 40% tax, UK 30-40%, French 40%, Denmark 45%, etc… they are made clear if TAX woudl not have been the case, the countries would not go forward… our people are denying taxes is not means acceptable.
      .
      8) Ever increasing cost of living.

      .
      This is common to any country while them being part of globalisations, but better systems to be adapted to prevailing systems is mandatory.
      .
      9) Totally unsuitable economic policies.
      .
      Totally unsuitable economic policies were the case during high days of Rajakshe men, that is why the burden is left to eh successors today.

      Part III
      :
      10) Selling of critical resources of country to foreigners or companies and even future acts to selling land to foreigners outright

      . Please come with facts – selling was fullfilly within two weeks at the time BALLIGE PUTHA Rajakshe sold out SHANGRILLA grounds to china, but RW led group were able to get it converted into a lease, .. instead of thanking but to BRAND and spread blantant lies Ranil is more into sell off the land is BEYOND all ethics and morals.
      .
      Besides, ballige putha Rajapakshes are made SERVICLE by CHINA for their survival… that is known to the world, that is the reason why China became only COUNTRY to welcome FAKE PM Rajapakshe, while entire world stood against ballieg putha… that proved.. so long BALLIGE putha got elected, CHINESE would become happy to do anything in tihs country. This is cheap politics for RAJAKAPSKHE survivial:
      :
      People of Sri Lanka shall ot forget these policies thus President Sirisena had to remove him from PM to save the country.
      .
      There have been no policies, but BALLIGE putha SIrisena wanted to abuse STUPID Rajakashe since Rajakashe would be happy more than happy to wait 2025 t o allow his eunach son to take over as the president.. These men should rather have beeen beheaded having brought to GALLE face green in order to feel us all peace …
      .
      This country is MADE sick by Rajapakshes mantra. They should be jailed now than later for a build of better lanka.

    Brazil was a developing poor country. It developed coonections with China, and Russia. Brazilian president, just the way Mahinda Rajapakse had gor problems. They used social media and other underhand tactics and some unknown person won the PResidential race. Now BOLZANARO, the new president, is intriducing lenient laws to make Gun buying. the country has lot of DRUG problems just rhe way LAtin america is. A right wing politician for a poor country. Now ISrael wants closer relations with Brazil. So, Maithripala Be careful from both UNP, and SLPP.

    Why is no one considering depriving MR of his civic rights as JR’s Govt had done for Sirima? Is there not a long list of crimes listed in some CT articles & comments perpetrated against the many people’s of SL by MR who won the presidency through deceit & fraud like bribing the LTTE along with his family and clan who had over 60 to 70 % of the SL’s money & finances during his horrendous reign claiming undue credit for the defeat of the LTTE which was primarily enabled by the coalition of 20 to 30 countries.

    Perhaps the answer lies in the present majority low-life ruling class politicians & bureaucrats feathering their own nests, fear, greed, and by using the rest of the peoples as expendable pawns to primarily serve their own egos and assets for their own survival & thrival having caught the tigers tail; pun intended.

    Won’t this help break up the unholy triangle of MR, MS, & RW and recreate former parallel lines with only MS & RW that will be less harmful to the body politic of SL and the world at large?

    Until these 2 are also eventually replaced by others akin to the days of Gamini Dis, Lalith Athu & Rane Preme? The difference being the unavailability of the LTTE to do the dirty work!?

    IGP please dont succumb to illegal requests from the shithead president who will try to prevent rogues and corrupt politicos and murderers from being convicted. If any such request is made expose this shithead president and remember that he has no power to transfer you as there is a police commission now in place and if the prick tries his nonsense he will be castrated live and hung upside down before public execution. This betrayer of the people will soon be impeached as all the parties except the horapottuwa are sick and tired of this imbecile who tried to destroy democracy in the country and is guilty of breaching the constitution which is treason and for which punishment is the death penalty. We the citizens will be so happy to see this bastard kicked out and punished and we wish him unhappiness, death and bad health for the new year.

    Mahulchandran,

    Do you want to take off civic rights of Mahinda because of annihilation of Tamil terrorist LTTE and getting Sri Lanka rid of terrorism?

    Civic rights must be taken off of the proven mastermind of Central Bank of Sri Lanka, Ranil Samanala Wickramasinghe in my view.

      Nimal Tissa Wijetunaga@.
      :
      Let me explain you the GROUND reality of the SO CALLED BOND BANK that overstated by SIRASA TV and made a people’s opinion that it was the biggest one ever occured in SL.
      .
      This bond scam has been occuring in the country since 2008 as President Sirisena endorsed it and also going by bank experts in the country..
      .
      President SIRISENA has reiterated the loss estimated (roughly) should be over 1000 billion of rps. (Since 2008 to 2017).
      .
      COPE made their recommendations and large part of these recommendations were kept away from exposure since Rajapakshe era (from 2008 to 2015) is caught by having lost over 990 Billions (99% of the total loss). This I too studied in the journals and questioned myself why SIRISENA and RAJAKAHE would not interest in those sums but 10 billion to have lost during the 3 years of Ranil W. govt ? There i understood that it was a PRE CALCULATED issue to tarnish UNP by SIRISENA led groups.
      .
      Who on earh focus on 1% of LOSSES than 99% ? What kind of EDUCATION you ve got Nimal TISSA Wijetuna to behave like all other majority grass eaters in the country ?
      Just because BLACK media servile to Rajapakshes painted the picture in favour of them and their political gains, you guys must not fall in in their dirty politics.:
      .
      We a group of srilankens would be ready to come back to SRILANKA in March 2019 have a disccussion round on what basis, SIRASA TV had the right to rule out that Wikramasinghe to be the BROAD day light bank robber ? while the very same men kept utter silent not focusing on the 99 times more losses got proved to have occured during 2008-2015? How and why have the LANKEN black media been painting the picture in terms of HIGHLY ABUSIVE Rajakashes ?
      .

    Desperate Sinhalaya,

    1) Why the Forensic Audit is being deliberately delayed by Ranil ?

    2) Why the amendment to the Anti corruption Bill is being delayed indefinitely in the Parliament?

    The above fats were to told to face of Ranil and his gang soon after the sworn in ceremony for the 2nd time as PM in this term of parliament in one of the most transparent outburst by a politician in this country to-date and no response from RW and his gang even to-date for the speech given by President on that day.

    Please do not write lies in desperation.

    Give him a longer and tougher rope to hang himself on, and then give him the guillotine swift and sharp so that he has no escape and is done away with once and for all. This is probably RW’s strategy .

    Donkey like Ranil Wickramasinghe alias Don Juan Dharmapala has only strategy to emptying the the Banks, selling critical state institutions and properties and breaking sri lanka in to 08 provinces almost like eight governments and giving the North and East on a platter to Tamil Diaspora and delaying or do away with elections .

    Do you need a strategy or brain to do all these actions so detrimental to the country?

    Sri Lankan masses will fight tooth and nail if he tries to do all these in the future.
