A breach of traditions

  • 21 Sep 2007 16:23:41 GMT

    This is what the MPs led by Basils brother (Motta Rala) did - when two JHU MPs tried to take oaths in 2004.


    So Basil didnt get even 10% of what he deserved. However, he got 10% of everything else! :) :)

    In the eyes of SL citizens (and others) the SL Parliament has lost its dignity long, long ago, ever since parliamentarians acting more keen on lining their own pockets and assuming people are a also like them (i.e.: a bunch of idiots ).

    Belligerent MPs running amok in parliament is only academic. Its diginity was lost long ago. MPs would not care less.

    On the other hand, having to face a little protest in the Parliament doesn`t really hurt. Rajapakse Brothers have done much damage, so it is only fair that they take some flak in the house, leaving aside possible lawsuites that may follow. After all, in a few months` time, all will be forgotten.

    Basil deserve `10%` insult (not enough) as he and Rajapakse Brothers have done the worst damage to this country than any other leader after independence. He should be shown `100%`. We don`t think this a breach of traditions...What about so called `Dr` Mervyn Silva shouting in Foul/Filthy language in the parliament...where as it`s may be recorded in hansad + it goes all over the world as a mobile recording.

    Hopefully more to come and people of Sri Lanka watching the proceedings with lots of interest that was never had before with the appoinment of the select committee to probe the alligations of funding LTTE.

    DrJones :

    I just tried emailing TWICE you but the mail keeps returning. Are you sure you gave me the correct address? User not found error?

    I went to your home page (if i have got the correct person) - but there is no email listed there. Let me know. It would be great to catch up buddy. :)

    [Wednesday saw a new low when for the first time in Parliament history a swearing in of a new member was greeted with hoots and catcalls]

    It just shows the decline of quality in those seeking to be the peoples` representatives. Basil may be worthy of a hoot as it shows the decline in quality in one perspect. It also shows the decline in quality of the peoples` representatives who are able to hoot in the once respectable assembly of the Parliament.

    The present Parliament is like the old `Wanatamulla` near

    Borella.The people are thugs, the lanuage used is utter filth and very soon they may serve kassipu and ganja.
