      Bondscam Ranil’s last Hurrah?!
      So long, farewell, Ranil – a curse on you!
      You have done so much damage to Lanka, the political culture, and UNP party. Time to let younger generation take over and clean up your mess.
      You have turned SL parliament into a Hub of Corruption, horsetrading and rent seeking in Indian Ocean.

      Good riddance!

      Floor test is a must.

      Fake Premiership and subsequent cabinet will be null and void sooner than later.

      This happens when uneducated candidate takes over the office.

      In today politics, either you should have a good education or should have grown up in such environments.

      This man’s brother – sirisenas brother was found gunnedown few years ago.
      But sirisena did not even turn up to funeral. He is peityless man:
      The hand fed him was bitten as the hand can not be healed easily.
      That is how he treated to UNP. All the invesitgations against Rajakshes were blocked by the bastard, But Ranil W was attacked by Press. I am not an UNPer. Nor have I lived in the country for last few decades. BUt I love and respect democratic values.

      Floor test – generally means to prove majority in the state assemblies that one has got full support of it’s party or coalition party to form the government. Floor test is a judicial innovation introduced in the Bommai case where SC restricted the misuse of the constitution.

      AKD fully supports the mass movement for the restoration of democracy.

        Of course! A show demonstration like this, can be taken as prima facie evidence but what counts is a result from an election. The local government elections were postponed on some pretext or the other, which is anti-democratic, and was finally held to provide the opinion of the people in terms of the ballot. Again, the Provincial Council Elections are postponed on some pretext or the other and it is so bad that the Elections Commission has decided to seek a declaration from the Supreme Court. These postponements are a blatant denial of sovereign rights of the people. Democracy must be restored.

        Sir, I think, by AKD he means Anura Kumara Dissanayake. Not you.

      They will call an another rally against Rajapakshe-Sirisena join coalition on the 1st Nov as I read somewhere.
      They dont want to join hand with UNP but show their disagreement with SIRISENA s u turn beheviour:
      I think what we will get to hear next days, is, Sirisena will commit suicide not being able to face 6.2 millions of lanken voters.
      Both parties Sirisena and Rajapakshe have been cheated by their own advisers. Both of them had their private agendas
      1) Rajakshes to block Gotabaya from being the candidate for next PE
      2)Rajapkseh to find a better candidate out of siblings
      3) Rajapakseh to save the thrown which he think should really go to bastard son Namal ponna baby – he is not over 35 yrs and now he cant be the one bu the iwll be in 2025
      4) Now once tasted it, never would relinquish theory, Sirisena though behave an illiterate would nevertheless want to stay in power
      5) Sirisena therefore thought, no matter the greatest betrayal of 6.2 mio vote base, but to be the candidate and free Rjaapkshe from their family struggle
      6) Also high profile crime investigations could bring Rajapkshe into jails .. should be blocked by any means. here, Rajapakshe would do anything if the family would have been saved…
      7) So Sirisena put the offer on the table – if MR would agree with him being given the Candidacy to contest next PE
      a) Sirisena will offer him premiership no matter constitution is against.
      b) and all the FCID investigations will be blocked – and considered as nothing happened.
      8) Now Yesterday itself, Rajakshe walked behind Sirisena, in Thissamaharama temple, seen as ABITHAYA – now Rjapakshes tongue is tied.

          Dear Edwin,
          I am rightly NOT in SL, but I am well alert on the developement. I keep watching the latest to inform the masses accordingly Thanks you guys have been supporting to democracy. We must not go back to the black daysagain.
          Now only people see what freedom for media had been safeguarded.
          Today Sirsasa is not showing even the size of the crowd of UNPrs. Why ?
          Derana and Hiru have been attacking not knowing the legality of the appointment yet.
          All the educated folks would impartially join hand to see fairness.
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNvJCQ75RCE&t=370s
          See entire world join hand agasinst SIrisena s immatured act.
          There is no party or other things behind but the act is against morals.
          Hand fed him is bitten as nothing can help healing.
          See, the gathering over 65 k just joined the rally and some good ;Monk request not to do anything but to cancell prorogation fo the parliament.
          If I were there, I would have joined you no doubt.

            Sirasa Tamil tv 8 o’clock news did show the size of the crowd ‘- both aerial videos and close ups. They devoted quite a long time to the protest.

    The protest seems peaceful.
    Has Dr Go have any of his agent provocateur already planted among them?
    Perhaps Dr Go should in time find some arms, ammunitions, old news papers, anti aircraft guns, nuclear armed submarines from those Dosa Kadeis along the roads.

    old codger
    Champika is still with Ranil.
    He cannot live without refering to Pancha Maha Balavegaya. Gosh these are people who still in early 1950s.
    Could you tell this public racist we are living in the 2018 and artificial intelligence is becoming common feature of our life.

    There can be no doubt that Sirisena has let us all down.
    .
    Guys as treacherous as My3 have to be told that we too tan risks to put him where he is. We had no personal agenda, but this man who talked sweetly has now become a curse to the entire country.

      Ranjan Ramanayake told Wasantha Senanayake to check his DNA to see he is actually a D S Senanayake descendant while Navin Nayakka is standing in front of him.
      Brilliant, Navin Nayakka now has to think twice before he switched his loyalty again.

    There’s is nothing UNP can do now except preparing for upcoming elections. Mahinda has become prime minister fair and square.
    /
    How come Ranil thinks that he can still stay as the prime minister after great bond scam, losing the local elections to Mahinda, and breaching the constitution and law plenty of time etc. The ambassadors and high commissioners must know this before sticking their noses in Sri Lanka’s progressive politics.
    /
    And the biggest buffoon Mangala.

    UnP is so bankrupt that they have to depend on people like Bahu and Pathali to galvanise the UNP supporters……….
    Is this the great UNP we knew ?
    Willing sacrifice blind supporters in the name of democracy for the party stalwarts to continue robbing the Country.

    Normally it is written I certain piranhas, that when a leader betrays his people, someone will die a natural death, either by accident or heath ailments.

    And those who support such betrayal knowingly will also loose a very close absence loved one
    The Puranas never lie.

    Ranil is not known to be brave or fearless. CBK knew it and cut the ground under him in 2014. Aappaya counts on MR’s political experience and cunning. MR relishes political tension and landscape like the one Sri Lanka is experiencing now. Cut-throat specialist Aappaya is only interested in saving the many billions he has robbed as a Govt Minister and in higher positions – illegally invested in the names of his close relatives in Hotels. Rice Mills, Land and so on. As his many pin-adi travels to many countries in recent times shows, he is mostly interested in Kaema, Beema and pita-rata “going” for him and his gamaya friends – on the poor people’s bankrupt economy.

    Can Ranil sustain his new found “bravery” – buoyed by the large crowd at Kollupitiya? The courage and “balls” he lacks will be provided by Rajitha, Champika, Harin, Ranjan R and a few others in the UNP. He has it in the tank to “fight” for a few more days. If there are 1-2 deaths he will get his usual cold feet. Reminds one of Dudley of yore.

    The next few days will bring the answer. Chinese money is another big worry.

What can a poor people party like unp can do. See the investment behavior of mahindas business class in stock exchange yesterday the highest ever inndex in last 4years. Their showing the world that they will invest only the slfp of Mahinda in power.a poor party like unp led by a innocent people like Jr,premadsa ,lalith,gamini or Ranil what they can do, see how badly media is treating them, even a police constable is respecting unp.all with rajapaksas slfp.this is a fate of a poor peoples party like unp or JVP. The powerful ultra business capitalist party like slfp is doing dictator ship but their main vote base of upper middle class and middle class are very happy and waiting to give 2/3 majority in next parliamentary election to slfp only for their business economic policy and their economic benefits under slfp governments led by rajapaksha.what ever unp cries fowl do any one thing that a party like slfp care is constituanaly wright or wrong. One thing is obvious unp the party never seen or handle a economy more than 15 billion USD before 2005 does not no any thing about the economic management of this huge business economy of 80 billion which was architected by slfp during 2005-2015.

    UNP is/was that the political had been created anti-Tamil political manhandling since 1977.79,81 and 1983. No body speak that UNP leadership on accountability and responsibility , politics of Racism long years in power 1977 to 1994?
    40 Years since 1977 that UNP leadership of history has shown that they are no longer party of NOT accepts principle RULE of form which governances democracy guide-lines.
    UNP is party of created chaos and political vandalism by aiming of jepoderzeing whole nation since 2015 January 8th?

    UNP leaders of Ranil Wicks and his clique has ruin economy and DEBT country in Billions of Rupees lost major Foreign Reserved rapidly result of that declined FOREX , and declined growth of GDP from 7.6% to 3.1% since 2015 to 2018 up today. Now UNP has passed ball to other. UNP accountability cannot escape form punishment, of history for UNP leaders.

    Tamils feel they have been once again let down by Sinhalese leaders, this time by Sirisena. It is now Sirisena is in his true colours – a vociferous and un-repentable ultra-Sinhala = Buddhist zealot. He hid his true form to win the Tamil and Muslim votes. It is not Ranil but Sirisena go is shielding the corrupt and the powerful.
