    [A damning report by Philip Alston, the UN Special Rapporteur on Summary and Arbitrary Executions, states that in presenting the report to the General Assembly last year, Mr. Alston warned that `Sri Lanka was on the brink of a crisis of major proportions.` ]

    Mr. Alston seems to sound he could govern our country better than our elected leaders, eh? hE... hE... hE

    For a starter he can try sticking that `warning` in his as*ho*e... What do these foreign monkeys think? Are we a batch of some kindergarten kids?

    After all, what have we changed, heeding to these warnings in the past for 25 years? Can`t they get the message that we just don`t care for their warnings????

    Some HR groups are just like pro-Ranil UNP...

    [Irresponsibility of Lanka?s opposition leadership

    The opposition leadership is reminded of an age old village adage that refers to ?Blaming the matchmaker for the infidelity, infertility and incompatibility of married couples?. They are also reminded of the folk tale of the ?Judgement of King Kekkille?, where the king decided to hang the fat village Mudhalali instead of the thin and scraggy culprit, as the hangman?s noose will fit better around the fat neck of the former. The recent actions of the opposition leadership on the hanging of HSBC are akin to the above legendry story and reference.

    A legitimate government in power invites selected international investment banks to support as intermediaries and lead manage a book building initiative of the government to raise US$ 500 million by way of an issue of sovereign bonds. The Central Bank of the country makes a presentation to the invited investment banks, whose primary business activities and core competences include such professional services. HSBC is one of three investment banks that accept this invitation. They are however the only invitee with commercial operations in Sri Lanka.

    The recent official press release of the opposition was the final nail in the coffin of a series of unbelievable acts by the opposition leadership, akin to acts usually performed by circus clowns. These began with threats made out in ?Mariyakade? language, acts of coercion and even a proposition of violent action against HSBC similar to those adopted by militant trade unions and university students. When these acts of Insanity, Irresponsibility, Intellectual Dishonesty and Arrogance were correctly questioned by some business chambers, the opposition leadership did not fail to go for a kill targeting the jugular vein.

    In specific, the following parts of the statement of the opposition shocks citizens into a total disbelief in what they once attributed as qualities of a leadership with sanity, professionalism and integrity:

    * Calling the public to agitate against the HSBC and chambers for approving the cutting of subsidies to the people

    * Warning HSBC that it will, when in power, not honour any commitments because the loan is contrary to the law

    * Warning that the licence to operate in Sri Lanka will be cancelled

    * Alleging that the chambers concerned are driven by corporate greed and supporting the establishment of a class of exploiters who believe in privatised tyranny and socialism of the rich

    * Drawing reference to some disputes of the HSBC with its shareholders and implying the incompetence of the management in focussing resources to optimize opportunity, acquiring a bad mortgage portfolio and investments in sub prime markets, coupled with failure of due disclosure

    The opposition leadership, which now appears to have possibly cast aside all commitments to fundamental principles of good governance in their quest for power at any cost,..]
