    These people will take minister posts even if LTTE give them.

    Lanka politics, Lanka philosophy

    Mahinda needs it. He has broken all the election promises and taken his Ruhunu people for a ride.

    1. Norway is still the facilitator

    2. No talks in Asia

    3. No review of ceasefire only implementation.

    4. Talks on federalism.

    Why didnt the southerners vote for Ranil who was saying the exact same thing that Mahinda has ended up doing? I bet they dont even realise that.

    I personally dont care who sleeps with who, just have a 2/3 majority on the side that makes the decisions.

    i guess 2/3 is enough for a passing grade eh. just a pass would do.

    This is Definitely a BIG BLOW to the UNP. Especially Keheliya Rabukkwella leaving. He had personal problems with Ranil.

    However, buying MPs with Ministerial portfolios will not solve Motta Ralas problems.

    It seems like Motta rala is prepairing ditch everything he promised during the elections do what Ranil and CBK did (Peace talks, Federal solution and we might even see the ISGA proposals). For this he has to make sure JVP doesnt controll him. The JVP has 39 MPs under its control. So Motta Rala has to somehow convince over 25 UNP MPs + CWC + SLMC to join him. If not the JVP can pull the plud under him anytime.

    What im waiting to see is When GL Peiris - the Architect of a Federal Solution (and supposedly a LTTE sympathyser)corsses over, what the JVP and Motta Ralas supporters have to say :) :)

    Southerners did not vote any of them.

    They voted:

    1) to get more labor jobs in middle east.

    2) for free food and school supports

    3) because of hamuduruwaru

    4) because Ranil did poolish thing.

    Ltte and Tamils handed Rs 2000 mln as donations to rajapakse through Eric.

    do i need to say more?

  • 25 Jan 2006 21:10:27 GMT

    All right. I can google this but i`m lazy. Q to the sinhalese.

    how many seats in parliament. how many does slfp have. i`m basically trying to calculate how many more need to trot over.

    Don`t you think Eric Solheim was interfered.

    Young guy. shouldn`t he have this vulnerability, he could be even Head of Norway at 50.

    He lost his life.

    Poor boy!

    My sympathy!

    Do have any idea on the outcome of Bala`s recent talks? he has vowed to be peaceful till the next talks with the GOSL. This will be surely held in the Swiss capital according to the news report I watched on tele today.

    Any optimistic views?

    Forget about buying UNP MPs. It has been the case in SL political history. Ronnie is the champion of jumping here and ther thus tagged as `Pani` (jumping) De Mel

    if what your saying is true. then Thank you and we as sinhalese appriciate and respect it.

    But tigress your dealing with a big Southern Lier.

    Mr Mahinda Mama might put it in his pocket and wanish.

    Please tell you Uncle Mr Praba to keep an eye on that man.

    Last time he took the tsunami money and became the president !!

    by the way, isnt it good to hear that the peace talks are back on track ? I think you and Lula should go for the talks. Hope your Gaja aunty is happy too.
