    It would be quite an experience for the queen to participate in one of our cabinet meetings! Can we amend our constitution- the 19th amendment- to permit the queen to attend only one Sri Lankan cabinet meeting? She should be free to choose the meeting she will attend! She may yet learn somethings new in the twilight years of her long reign! Should we also invite her to attend a parliamentary session and possibly a special sitting of the PSC to impeach the CJ. The British have to learn how a real peoples democracy works!

      Dr.Rajasingham,
      Do you feel yourself as her subject and her majesty as your sovereign? I just wanted to know.

    We are more advanced. Our King sits on top of our cabinet. He has another kitchen cabinet as well.

    The Queen reigns but does not rule.
    The Monarchy is most powerful because it denies power to those who would misuse it.
    The Queen’s judges ensure justice in the kingdom.
    They can be removed only by her.
    The Queen’s judges are gentlemen ( & ladies ).
    A Lord Chancellor said “We prefer to appoint gentlemen as judges.If they know the law,so much the better”.
    I will certainly prefer her or anyone like her,to be my sovereign.
    We had justice in this land until “independence” – then,all hell broke loose.
    The recent massacre of 16 prisoners by the STF,and 11 more by police would have never occured, under the ‘british brand’ of justice.

    This is an exceptional honour to Her Majesty by Cameron’s Cabinet in view of 60 years of her reign – an extra-ordinary milestone. This has no more significance except the symbolic in tradition-inclined Britain. I believe, as expected, she (nor Prince Phillip) did not take part in Cabinet discussions although, technically, it is H.M’s “Cabinet of Ministers”

    If the Queen attends a Sri Lankan Cabinet meeting, she will walk away after a few minutes saying; “Why did you bring me to a kennel that is full of mad dogs.”
