    Why did they not do this rehearsal business yesterday ? A poya day when no one would be really inconvenienced. Why ? Because idiots run the show.

    Look at Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia and ask yourself what Sri Lanka has to celebrate.

    This govt does not care. Inconveniencing the common man as they travel in entourages where traffic is stopped.
