“Vice Chairmanship Of UNP: Never In My Wildest Dreams Did I Expect It” – Mangala

Mangala Samaraweera, upon receiving a letter from UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe appointing him as Vice Chairman, has said that it was not something he had expected.

He has tweeted that when he was appointed the SLFP Organizer for Matara 30 years ago he had not even in his wildest dreams thought that he would one day be appointed to such a position in ‘the grand old party’.

    I am not surprised but happy because there are very few politicians of his steady character. Come what may, he speaks out of his convictions following clear principles moral conduct.

      Yes, Mangy does not change his principles, however unpopular they may be, just to win elections.

      Max you had no issue when MR appointed Karuna Amman as the Vice President of the SLFP? On the other hand why are you concerned about the UNP? Bloody Humbug!

      It’s not sad.
      The UNP is bisexual and multiracial. Anything wrong?

    Moral conduct says SJ Emmanuel suggesting that the man is of good moral conduct. With all respect to the gay community, it is well known that apart from being a homosexual his gay romping are the stuff of legends. We are living in a morally decadent world and I wonder whther the man who made this comment is the notorious LTtE sympathiser in cassock.

      Percy dear,
      ” his gay romping are the stuff of legends.” Do I note a hint of jealousy?
      Please keep your hangups to yourself. At least Mangy is open about his preferences, unlike some of your oh-so-holy clergy he does not enlist five-year-olds.
      There is a difference, dear Percy, between homosexuality and paedophilia. Look it up.

        “At least Mangy is open about his preferences,”
        I am trying to figure out which side of the relationship he prefers.
        Obviously Ranil and Mangala both cannot be on the same side.

      “With all respect to the gay community, it is well known that apart from being a homosexual his gay romping are the stuff of legends.”

      When did Mangla’s private matters become your business?

      A self confessed pervy has no right to type on moral conduct.

      Percy, why only Mangy? What about the homos in safron clothes?

        Nothing wrong with homos but paedophilia is a scourge. Not only people in saffron robes but those in cassocks. The Roman Catholic Church is infested with paedophiles. Cardinal Pell in Australia is the 3rd most senior in the RC Church after the Pope and is fAcing charges of sexual misconduct in courts.

    Samaraweera is an able man who performed very well as the Foreign Minister and is the sort the Premier will need in what is clearly a very dark hour for the UNP.

    Hope Mangala will inspire the UNP Working Committee to do what Working committees are expected to do i.e. being constructive.
    Way way back Mangala severed MR-team ties on certain principles. He never wavered.

      “Way way back Mangala severed MR-team ties on certain principles.”
      I still believe what he said then was true and still keep on voting for Rajapaksa. He converted me to Rajapaksa camp.

      While the top level capitalist party like modern slfp with the support of entire business community and government mechanism in srilanka what is the point of appointing a gentleman like mangala for the party like unp which is very poor and doing mixed economic system of the innocent leaders like Jr premadasa lalith or gamini.the top level shangrila capitalist will make joke out of the poor parties like JVP or unp . innocent unp.

    I still remember clearly how he used to elaborate Batalanda totures and Ranil Wicramasinge in choicy words while in the opposite side and last week CT carried his recent statement that he himself was instrumental in “Ranil can’t ” campaign while he actually believed Ranil can.
    I always had this general question in the case of a political turncoat are we to believe what he said earlier or what he is saying now. And who is going to compensate me for believing what he was saying was true at that point of time.

      Please go back in history and see what others said, wrote, believed, practiced ……………… imposed on others were truthfully acceptable?

      Sri Mao the weeping widow though while being SLFP leader voted for UNP because her son contested as UNP candidate. She took every single SLFP supporter for fool, including you and other handbag carriers.

      And who is going to compensate SLFP voters and rest of the country for believing in what she and her party managers said was true at that point of time?

      Similarly you got to keep a record of these moron’s uttering or at least remember them . How could we help you when selectivity seems to be your specialty.

    This unpopular and unsuitable leader Ranil has done many faggoty things in order to strengthen his position in the UNP. As a result the UNP has become the joke of the town.

    Ravi K the pickpocket politician is also a assistant leader. One time Tissa Attanayake was made secretary of the party by Ranil. After Tissa exposed Ranil he is being relentlessly persecuted by the great leader !

    Then Ranil made SB who had crossed over from the SLFP the national organizer of the UNP. Today SB hates Ranil.Ranil who has a good sense of honesty made Dayasiri Jayasekera an assistant secretary of the UNP . From his behaviour he is no second to Ranil when getting money from Aloysious !
    Ranil also had that Posseur Milinda Moragoda as his adviser. Tilak Karunaratne who was a total failure as CSE as Treasurer. The list is endless.

    Mangala is a dirt eating politician of no UNP background or even a decent history. He is a fashion designer who is now deciding economic policy for services given to the leader.

    Ranil should just become the secretary of the Royal college old boys or Lionel Wendt Gay club and let the country become healthy again

      There is nothing subtle about it. And probably one of the less bad choices for UNP and the country.

    Of course! How can he ever dream of being the deputy leader of UNP when he was appointed the SLFP organizer for his electorate many moons ago? That exclamation has no sense. He has definitely risen in his political career and acquired the essence of statecraft. In fact he has shown his mettle as the Minister of Finance. The similarity of his father and him is that both of them finally landed in the laps of UNP crossing from the SLFP. What must be admired of the man is that he successfully separates his personal affairs from official ones, which only a very few can do.

    Mangala ~ “Vice Chairmanship Of UNP: Never In My Wildest Dreams Did I Expect It”
    Obviously he was not consulted. Is this an ‘upstairs’ tradition?
    The important thingy is “Does he like it or not”!

    Please take it. Then people can simply forget the unp forever. Ranil and Mangala what a traitorous bunch !
