    His Majesty King Mahinda Rajapaksa I and his Royal Entourage are entitled to travel to where ever they want regardless of any costs.

    Eliminating the LTTE and vanquishing terrorism which plagued the country for decades which NO ONE was able to control deserves to be appreciated by the Nation.

    Kiwi: I usually don`t retort to name-calling but then calling you an IDIOT is not! Your comments tells me you have absolutely no understanding of the politics at play or the greater good of the country at heart. If as Lakshman Kadirgama said `...every Tamil has a romantic attachement to the LTTE`, then it is fair to say every Sinhalese has a longing to see an end to bigotry in Sri Lanka - racial, political, or otherwise. But to CROWN as a**hole a king and believe that they could screw around the world with people`s hard earned money (when the country needs development and progress) is MORE THAN IDIOTIC.

    Cartoon, I could not agree more with u.

    Thanks man, for trying to wake up the slankans who under the influence of false nationalism and patriotism kindled by miliatry victories. Soon, the stomachs will start talking and then they will find the truth about everything.

    The saddest part of the story is that the question has been asked by the biggest crook in the country, who embezzled from his boss and private business partners, let alone from the government.

    The saddest part of the story is that some slankans are still hoodwinked by the corrupts and the thugs of SLFP, who present themselves in sheep`s clothing.

    UNP is a clean party and has no baggage to carry.

    Vishnu, it is one thing to call MR an a**hole for trying to play Dutugamunu when he was holed up in Temple Trees while others paid for his war efforts (he should still be commended for his resolve) but to call Ravi Karunanayake the biggest crook in an unsubstantiated manner is not acceptable either. It is unfair to accuse people by name - and about unprecedented fraud - without proof to support it.

    Raigam, I would not go as far as to say that the UNP is a clean party. The party is a mess and Ranil conveniently ignored the allegations of corruption in the UNF when he had the chance to prove his stand on the matter. While I don`t wish to mention names, I am quite aware of many UNPers who has had their relatives carry out corrupt business practices (while they were in office) so as to prevent their names from becoming dragged in to those deals. Let us remember when we talk of SL politicians we are talking about the whole lot at that Mad House by the Diyawanna.
