    Bread and butter issues are for the Colombo 7 elitists.

    Our people have rice for their sustenance which is not an issue!!

    Don`t be stupid Mr. Abeywardene. The President and his team are not so naive like your leader and his team. They are quite smart, leagues ahead of you all.

    The euphoria over the war victory may evaporate but there will be other things, like the check points, traffic hold up when VIPs travel, occasional discovery of hidden cache of weapons, arrest of sleeping suicide cadres, unearthing of plots to assassinate the President etc., which will maintain the war fever, till the elections are over.
