A low life underworld figure, well known in running a longstanding extortion racket is hacked by another and it becomes news, WHY? Simply because the man happens to be the President’s brother, Priyantha Sirisena.Whatever the merits of Maithripala Sirisena as President of Sri Lanka. He comes from a family of questionable crooks, who have ruined, more like completely destroyed Polonnaruwa ...

The most laughable comments come these days from an ex-president commenting about vengeance!http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=121174 The most vengeful traitor of this decade has NO right to question the actions currently taking place, which to the people seem painfully slow, but to him seems out of spite!!! In fact people in the press are questioning if there is a deal between the Prime ...

The latest news that Avant Garde has begun to remove the weapons from the mother ship Mahanuwera is a clear attempt at further disrupting the Government’s attempts at investigating the activities, and using the unfavorable climate operating as an excuse. They are attempting to divest the Rakna Lanka operations from Avant Garde, so they can operate independently of the Government ...

All parties other than the two main parties, and the TNA whose complete presence is in just a tiny area and even smaller nos, have a problem with whatever electoral permutation is adopted. Sarath Fonseka’s Party is as it sounds, just of him, as NO other person who even the dog knows will contest from there, making that any other ...

I made it abundantly clear in my blog post that bringing Arjuna Mahendran into the CB will be a big mistake, and I noted the reasons. It should at least have been done after the elections, by which time the Central Bank could be cleared up of the bad eggs by a stand in ex Central Banker, who could have ...

What on earth is going on? We have leaders, I don’t know if it is the operative word, as they are merely con artists that people have mistakenly voted for, due to their lying, and unprincipled actions. Frankly I am fed up because the same jokers are cropping up here and there and I am left wondering who we can ...

If so we need ...

Please stop this nonsense of Rajitha saying things that are then corrected or rejected later as being incorrect. This makes Rajitha worse than Keheliya who was also in the habit of telling lies.It is important that the Cabinet Spokesperson thinks very clearly and is very tactful in the utterances of cabinet decisions, as when they are communicated to the now ...

Any leader especially the PM knows what a pain this giving appointments to a whole set of people is. It is all very well to reward his friends who have been loyal to him since time immemorial and that is how it is played all over the world no matter what anyone tries to use the Good Governance moniker to ...

Those two jokers, Shiral Laktilleke and Maithri Guneratne, who have unquestionably been a disgustingly putrid presence in their desperate bid to sully the personality of the Prime Minister in his previous avatar as the Leader of the Opposition, now have been rehabilitated and taken on the holier than thou role of cleaning corruption, and one the former being appointed a ...

I trust the historians will begin writing this part of history, as it is unfolding very fast, and unless documented immediately will not get reported properly.
