    Justman,

    What makes you think the JVP are different to the others?

    These good for nothing plunderers are in power because the majority in the country have voted them into power!!

    Those who appeal to MR should know better. MR and co is behind everything going on. I would not call him Mee Haraka, rather `king of thives`.

    These politicians don`t come to power just because they love the people or care about the country, they are here to get rich quick scheme.

    Don`t tell that to the Sinhalese they will get offended. They still believe that politicians are doing their patriot duty.

    I have nothing against Sinhalese or Tamils or any other ethnic group, it`s the `elected` governments in the past or present that i have issues with.

    Sri Lankan politics is a joke, same BS with different players, all come into power promising the sky and get their fat bellies full. How do you think SB got money to send his Son away to flying school, you think he made that kind of money doing a 9-5 job in SL??. Poor men and women have to either go to ME working as maids or do low paying jobs so that they can feed their kids. Look how many undergraduates are unemployed. Recently I got an application from a graduate @ Moratuwa wanted to work as a cook or chef in the US. That is the life in SL.

    As far as JVP. I am very skeptical, it`s amazing what money and power can do to people.

    Superthamil:

    I just gave you an example of a resume I received. I am writing what he put on his resume, and the correspondance we had. He belonged to a minority ethnic group, may be he lied to get out of the mayhem in SL, I was a visiting student doing an internship for a year in the 90`s at UNI of Colombo, whether you agree or not I know for a fact that graudates do not get hired right away. There are no planned programs for jobs, by the way I am referring to the students who come from rural ares, not the elite in colombo. Most of these students end up joining political parties like JVP.

    Superthamil, if you live in SL and everything is smooth sailing for these students now, good for them.

    As a capitalist and a businessman,I see the reality of the situation in SL.Known established politicians are not willing to listen to your concerns and they are there to look after themselves,but the JVPrs have the same concern that I have for my people,a corruption free country and that`s why they sacrificed their portfolios and crossed over to the opposite benches,in protest.We need young,courageous and dedicated politicians,that will implement policies for which they were elected.We must guide them in other matters of complicate governance of a free democratic state,with fairnness and justice.They have transformed in to a democratic party.

    Groovygirl and Superthamil,

    I agree with Superthamil, but it is only for moratuwa university and probably the engineering faculty of Peradeniya. All other graduates from science faculties are somehow getting jobs at a slightly slow rate. However, most science graduates are keen to obtain other qualifications in computing and management, which put them in equal positions to some engineering graduates mentioned above.

    This is where Groovy is telling the truth, for those who are capable of affording those extra qualifications can only be guaranteed jobs, and the rest have to wait before government employment schemes or get employment that needs lesser qualifications. Having said that, it is also noted that, as it was in 90`s, students from rural areas are not all for JVP. Fortunately, the students, but unfortunately for the country as a whole, are now distancing themselves from traditional political parties.

    I also trust Groovy about this application to become a cook by a Moratuwa Graduate, since there are a few, who has gone blind by certain trends and advocacies of present day. I feel sorry for those as you quite rightly do.
