    Its business as usual , politically Sri Lanka style , more ministers for a little acre, with all the pampering like no other, and the tax payer, those at the bottom end been exploited to the core by the deceit and deception of scoundrels. The pummeling of protesters representing genuine complains will follow. The rating firms are given us serious warnings and the Central Bank keeps on printing money and it wont be too long before inflation will gather momentum.

    What is the legal interpretation of "National Government"? If there is provision for a fixed number of a team to navigate a ship, fly a plane or drive a train, do you increase the number depending on the number of passengers which board them? These parasites have no love for the Country or its people but they themselves.
