    Salary hikes for creating inflation and causing distress to poor people. Typical government style.

    If there is law why don`t these educated people abide by that?Why does the Elections Commissioner says something and the UNP or the UPFA come up with another?

    Oh... It should be. They work very hard for people`s sake. See their bodies... How thin they are. They work for us. No corruption, no benifits... Only public service. Shall we double or tripple their salary...

    Sorry.. Just woke up. I was dreaming... :-)

    You know what else causes inflation in our country. A larger budget deficit.

    Why would the JVP be against this? After all this time in the parliament, they too realised that they enjoy the rich life. Hell, why not go for a salary hike.

    Ofcourse ofcourse our dear protectors of the nation. They should have a salary hike even if that means IOC goes bankrupt, or even the man on the street cannot afford his kiribath for the day.

    I was propose this to have been done as an everyday activity in parliament. Every day our ministers serve the country they should get a daily increase forever.

    How can the country survive without our great protectors of the unitary constitution.

    Good job now lets have the war too. We need that too then only some foolish IC countries fill the coffers up for us to get more money on salary hikes.

    Salary hike is necessary for parlimentarians too. Living cost is very high now. I do not know how the poor people live in Lanka.

    The Government protects the Mudalalis by imposing a Rent act on Commercial properties. These errant traders pay only the rent of 1955. Sell the product at 2006 rates to the public. These traders avoid all forms of Taxes, Country is not developing, Properties cannot be developed.

    The owners suffer.

    But only the Salaries of the members of the Parliament increase.

    Please collect the salary difference from these tenants as a special tax collected directly from them

    When there is a salary hike, everyone debate peacefully. No fight, no coffin.

    Money talks!
