    July 10th will en light trade unionists,which will ad problems..../

    Unions who disagree to privatize non profiting government institutions demanding higher salaries.

    While introducing excess taxes on Private sector to feed non productive government sector.

    will the economy survive..?

    Under the `chintanaya` this what you get.

    [The national economy is still being kept afloat by a not-so-educated work force slaving away in West Asia, garment factories and on tea and rubber estates, the vast majority of them being marginalised women! Isn`t this enough proof that education has not paid enough dividends despite the colossal investment we have made. Nor has it contributed to social wellbeing, it may be argued, if the high incidence of crime, conflict and suicide is any indication.]

    Garments factories, tea and rubber, foreign jobs: all this is the good work of UNP governments. Then it is true to say that SLFP governments are living off on the results of UNP governments while ruining the economy.

    [Perhaps, it may be no exaggeration that most government officers have a worker for each file.]

    That`s due to loss of Tamils in public service

    Australian Tamil !!

    If not for Nelson Mandela, Gandhi, Martin Luther King.. Australia would have tagged along with South Africa...in promoting notorious Apartheid. There is no pride in identifying as a second class Australian.

    [There is no pride in identifying as a second class Australian]

    Ownership is not about pride. Like love, it is about acceptance of reality and inclusion to share strength. Besides, who said Tamil was second class in Australia?

    And what have YOU done to support someone who has been fighting along the lines of these leaders to eliminate racial discrimination in Australia?

    All non-whites, Tamil or Sinhala, in White countries, are treated as second class citizens.

    White Australians treated the original people as animals or sub-humans up to very recent. I do not believe that the Australian Tamil was fighting for the rights of original people in Australia.

    What is happening in New Zealand, Canada etc ??? In US it is different because majority is smarter. KKK and the Skin-Heads are still there but they are spent forces.

    South Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand were all ex-British colonies. US revolted against the British and won the independence.

    [South Africa, Australia, Canada, New Zealand were all ex-British colonies]

    All doing much better than old colony Ceylon (under the new name sorry lanka) in all areas including economy, sports and science.

    All have much better respect in IC. All have respect for human rights in the 21st century.

    In none, Media is gaged or harassed by the defence forces.

    In none, people disappear day and night.

    None of the above countries is run by the political junta run by people like Mervin silva, Duminda Silva, etc.

    It is a matter of time before our so-called leaders, would be booted and hooted out of International politics. They will have to find new countries to visit at Diplomatic Level...perhaps limited to Iran, Cuba etc.

    Although CBK was corrupted, she did not resort to political thuggery.

    Present GOSL has all signs of a worst type of notorious Police State.

    Don`t worry. Dr.Senaratne has found a solution to financial recovery and also keep the current cabinet portfolio running.

    Immediately sack the casual workers who joined the strike.

    Next week suspend all struck workers.

    This will give ample collection to feed ministers.Surplus can be utilize for foreign tours.
