    Soon is subjective. Soon has been said for years by all parties since the time of Sirima.

    I sometime feel Boga has no idea what hes talking about.

    I wonder if the IC take him seriously

    Talk talk and more talk about NOTHING.

    these guys wrote the book on talking about Nothing!

    [politics as practiced in Sri Lanka is an ongoing farce, an absolute charade, a travesty of governance with institutionalized plunder built in to make its practitioners wealthy?.]

    Yes yes coming soon - Village Panchayat Devolution

    Way to go. Proposals must treat all Sri Lankans alike without any bias based on religion or race. They should be for the benefit of the peace loving people of the country and not to satisfy the demands of terrorists who should be neutralized in a separate military exercise.

    There is no proposal. Just trying to calm the IC fearing the begging bowl will go empty before other source of donors are found.

    I wonder how much of the $600m was siphoned out to Rajapakse Brothers Inc?

    Like Marcos it would have been shipped out using MR cronies. Some of them could be on this forum too. SL has a slight chance of getting back what is in MR family and Sarath F family name in US.

    Here is the second part of my post. author was Muller.

    [The party system of politics that we have inherited is totally unsuitable for this country. It has not brought us democracy in the truest sense-only a caricature of it. We, the People, are actually and effectively powerless to the extent that we cannot even select the persons we would want to represent us in the supreme legislature! Even that has been hijacked by the so-called political parties whose leaders proceed to foist candidates of their choosing upon us-blackguards, thugs, morons and oddballs-who we are compelled to elect because of this wholly inappropriate system. Democracy, in essence, is the expression of the Peoples? Will from grass-roots level UPWARDS and not from party-level downwards!?.every sensible, decent, and law-abiding person will see the logic of our country wanting change from the present set-up to a new one.]
