A question of belling the cat

    The OPA can also press for the disenrolment of MR from the Roll of Attorneys of the Supreme Court! CJ might readily give the order to do it!

    Fairplay,

    Mahindananda Aluthgamage`s speeches will be `honorable and dignified` going by the standards of Mervyn Silva`s speeches!

    [ The OPA is of the view that there has been a willful violation of the Constitution on the part of the President due to the non-establishment of the Constitutional Council (CC) and its right, as a professional outfit, to propose a course of action to deal with an issue of national importance cannot be questioned]

    Of course, if the leaders enforce the laws and abide by the constitution, the country would not have the conflicts or fighting.

    Tamil Official Language (20 YEAR OLD) is still not implemented according to the Minister in Charge, DEW Gunasekare.

    This president who says he is going to implement 20 year old 13th Amendment is accused of violating the constitution. How can any one trust him or believe any word he utters?

    If there is one thing certain in this Universe it is that the JVP will not vote to impeach MR. They depend on him for their bread and butter.

    These professionals are trying to use the position of the president towards their own political purposes. I heard that during one of the meetings of a body of professionals, the chairman had said in relation to Tamil translation - that it could wait until Prabaharan gets Thamil Eelam. That is how unprofessional our professionals have become.

    They want to bell the cat so they could continue with their games. True professionals ought to function independent of politicians.

    Every thing influenced by party politics means the sign of a disintegrating society.

    AnuD,

    [Every thing influenced by party politics means the sign of a disintegrating society]

    Not necessarily - for it could be specialisation by isolating as a group

    This is `Hear Say`. Attempting to say as true what one onself has not heard seen or perceived but what someone else is supposed to have seen heard or perceived. Not professional!

    You mean that I need objective evidence of what happened? I agree that I need that with those who are not known to me and therefore do not have subjective connections. In this forum we have developed certain subjective connections through our beliefs and common values. To that extent, I do not need objective evidence to share experiences with others in this family/institution. It is highly professional to do so. It becomes unprofessional only where such is used with strangers about whose background we are ignorant.
