    What a mockery state of democracy in Sri Lanka! They all got together to topple MR and now distribute every single posts in the parliament among they themselves! Nearly 5 million voted against the so called yahapalana govt. but sadly their representation in the parliament is nil. It seems, my3 is a dictator in full terms. Appointing PM, then the Chief Justice, Opposition leader etc., Great. Ohoma yang!

        Isn’t it funny to see how righteous these guys are when the shoe is on the other foot.

        For ten years not only did they hold all key positions in parliament but they even controlled the judiciary and police.

      Its ones choice to define a glass as half empty or half full. JVP has chosen a better choice to be the opposition whip which would give it grater visibility and the ability to serve the public better than warming a back bench.

    For the first time in the parliament appointments are made according to the norms of parliamentary democracy.
    The largest party in the opposition has the Leader of the opposition and the next leader is the opposition whip.
    I know that people who have thrived in nepotism and cronyism for 20 years find it difficult digest even a rudimentary attempt in maintaining some sense of law and order.

    As for appointing PM and opposition leader, the parliament has the right to vote them out. This is a simple parliamentary rule.

    As for the Chief justice, Weerawansa has the right to impeach him as the herd did to Chief Justice Shirani Bandaranayake.

    I can understand your concern about appointment of Opposition Leader and Chief Justice however you seem to puzzle me as to Ranil Wickremesinghe who is a Sinhalese and a practicing Buddhist.

      they seem to have a different “superior” Race called the MaRa race anything other than that to them is not “us” unfortunately for them that race lasted only 10 years , dont think there will be a rebirth under that dim witted fake lawyer never to be crown prince nikan mal

        I for one would agree with you if not for the facts that present itself otherwise.

        UPFA received 4,732,664 votes.

        What is your take on it? What do you learn from it and how would you interpret the statistics. Give it a serious thought and let me know your findings.

          NV,
          I have given it Serious thought many times over,
          But I live in hope , that figure UPFA got is down from 5.8 Million MaRa got ion Jan 8th which the deluded one said will never go down,yet it did.lets not not forget there existed in UPFA a small maithri faction it too got votes ,even though jarawansa & clan asked not to vote for those candidates

          There was Mass scale brainwashing through state media during those days, there was songs playing periodically for “maha rajaneni” with the Mara face , cut outs were everywhere ,every other word on state media were about him and his family , the gullible youth & even the educated modayas got brain washed ,
          Racism -of course it exists among all communities when the head of state whips it up ,its a sure path to a win ,but he failed , Aug 17th showed its going down even more , lets hope it stays that way,
          Like i said I live in hope ..
          this is not a finding , just what i think , i wouldn’t dwell on it any more

        Ok Sara goyya, lets assume Im brainless. Then what about you? Other than just throwing muds and labeled everyone who are not in line with your thinking as brainless, what do you do?

          “Ok Sara goyya, lets assume Im brainless.”

          Amphioxus a type of fish which has no face and no brain yet survives in Scottish seas.

          Some weeks ago it would have been an added advantage if you were brainless. For example you could have been a president, prime minister, minister, police and armed forces chiefs, governor, chief justice, a saffron clad thug, …………………. though Sri Lanka has lately discovered need to have brain.

          If you don’t have one (I am sure you don’t) please consult a bio technologist who might be able to fit you out with a Bio Brick brain. They say it doesn’t work in a Sinhala/Buddhist cell.

          A Biotechnologist

          develops micro-organisms and plants to clean polluted land or water (in your case from your head to bottom)

          studies human genetics, proteins, antibodies, viruses, plants, fungi and bacteria to research and treat diseases (In your case Sinhala/Buddhism)

          produces medicines using techniques, such as cell culture and genetic modification (In your case cultivating brain cells and modifying to make you normal person).

      Vedda the doncky

      We saw yesterday how your model politician Wickremesinghe behaved in the parliament with abusive language to the opposition. (not to the designated ‘opposition’ but to the real opposition to this fake yahapalanaya). As once, one reader pointed out, hatred idiots like you never go to sleep unless Sinhala Buddhists are thrown out from their due place in the history of this country.

        “As once, one reader pointed out, hatred idiots like you never go to sleep unless Sinhala Buddhists are thrown out from their due place in the history of this country.”

        Sinhala/Buddhists have no due place in this island. Sooner they are thrown out of their Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto the better the country become and can on with its progress. There is a place for Sinhala/Buddhist ghetto, its called South India. India wants to build a bridge to connect this island which might help to expedite your departure.

        “(not to the designated ‘opposition’ but to the real opposition to this fake yahapalanaya). “

        Oh if that is the problem why don’t you ask UPFA MPs to resign from their ministerial posts and act like a real opposition. Is it too much to ask?

        Moron thamby a descendant of Keralite, Thamilan, Andhra, Bihari, ….. you can’t have the cake and eat it. If we go by your logic, can Ranil be appointed the opposition leader too while being the prime minister of this island?

        I know its too much for you.

        Its a question which came first Donkey or Lanky. Think about it, I know its difficult however give it a try.

        Can you define what you perceive as Buddhism’s due place in Sri Lanka?

        “We saw yesterday how your model politician Wickremesinghe behaved in the parliament with abusive language to the opposition.”— pity. He should’ve then sent a member of the unp on live television and explained why the word “p*kaya” was…. oh no wait. No no, that abusive language is ok. The abusive language mainly spilling from the UPFA side of the House for the past 10-odd years, which has caused the emptying of schoolkids form the gallery almost every day- that’s fine, is it? What an utter hypocrite.

        “hatred idiots”— last time i checked, these “idiots” never went around killing, raping, looting and assaulting other ethnic groups. That’s reserved for your sort of idiot, or have we forgot about Black July or Gnaanasaara’s recent antics in Aluthgama?

        “unless Sinhala Buddhists are thrown out from their due place”— if that place is on the necks of every other law-abiding, decent citizen of this country, not only will you bigots (who caused a 30-year war and countless hundreds of thousands of lives to be lost), regardless of whether you are Sinhala or Tamil, be thrown out, but drowned in the Indian Ocean and fed to the sharks. It’s either equality or nothing. This isn’t the medieval ages- I suggest you go pleasure yourself to a picture of Appochchi while Dharmapala’s racist rantings play in the background as a bit of mood music.

        Is that a Freudian slip? I talk about the ass, but you seem to get aroused thinking of the UPFA racist arse? What are you, a pervert? Seek therapy before you have run-ins with the law. By the way, do you also suffer from learning difficulties? Can’t you read and understand 2 sentences in a row? Or is it beyond your power of comprehension? Because what I’m saying is also that the “racists have lost control of the country,” and are getting a good whipping. Jeez.

    “Opposition Whip Post to JVP”. Did you all hear the speech this Leader gave in the Parliament debating on the proposal of the Government to increase the number of cabinet ministries? He said: “It is a shame to have brought this “First Resolution” in the 8th Parliament to get the number of cabinet positions increased, without giving any consideration to the immense difficulties faced by the farmers in selling their “Yala” harvest”. His revelations as regards those difficulties that the farmers are undergoing presently in selling the Yala harvest, brought results next day itself. The PM decided to discuss this as a matter of URGENCY with all the party leaders and give redress to those farmers. That speech on the proposal of cabinet numbers, but very cleverly brought up the problems faced by the farmers managed to bring good tidings. That I would say is how the Opposition must work and bring results to the people. Further in reference to the Government decision to use Mattala airport facilities for storing paddy, he also cautioned the Government to do things “SENSIBLY” after considering all aspects of that facility to be used for such a purposes. He did not step in to gain some publicity by merely floating with the popular views of condemning all what MR did in building that airport. That is another show of RESPONSIBILITY in handling public affairs. Don’t you think this Opposition with two of these people is moving in the correct direction of bringing a “check and balance” progress in Governmental affairs. I feel so.

      TNA and the JVP working together in the opposition could certainly provide the check and balance which is needed as the new Govt. still consists of a number of individual from the well established corrupt and divisive political culture. Further, these two parties together could also gain an understanding on the issues which divides the Sinhala and Tamil people and arrive at solutions that can bring-about true and lasting reconciliation.

    Who else could the Organ Grinder Sambnadan pick except this Monkey?

    If Sura didn’t abrogate Parliament, Batalanada Ranil and Galleon Ravi would have been booted out even by the real UNP supporters who do not like corruption , jobs for the mates , nepotism and Pathlaya tactics.

    Handunnetta, the only JVP dude who knew something about Financial Markets , Bond Trading and Quantitative Easing was banished to the un winnable territory and even struck off the National List.

    Was the Monkey jealous of Handunnetta’s knowledge of Economics?

    Or was the monkey cheesed off by Handunnetta picking on Monkey’s new mate and minder Batalanada Ranil and Mahendran?..

    Can’t wait to see this new recruit to the TNA ( how ironic considering the ex JVP forced Batalanda out of office mainly because he was trying to give the Vellalas self Rule) pulling the Whip to flog Batalanda Ranil and Galleon Ravi ..

    JVP leader would do the job being not that radical is our wish.

    Had the JVPers outreached village folks, they should have elelcted them in dozens to the parliament – even if we all like JVP theories, may be possilbe, leading parties of the nation do know more about how people are to be approached. And what go thorught the stupid minds sets of majority villagers of this country.
    I wonder, had JVPers been away from Parliament, would that be easy to achieve what the OPPOSITION achieved this day. But int he end, them to be sent home is not at all fair. My only wish was at least over 12 JVPers to be seated in the parliament so that they can do a lot more service as opponents.
    Unfortunatelly, virulent nation would go after MR s toilet over flowing toilet pits – without shame.
    This nation should be accountable for all what we face today. Democracies of western style are not at all a match SRILANKEN.We need to have strict law and order imposement in this country.
