    So what has happened to Ranil ? Where is he if he is not at Prime Ministers office ? . This is Bond, James Bond ready for action.

    Call an election immediately. Jan 08 was a mistake. No point continuing that mistake either with Ranil at top or Mahinda at top.

    A repeat of Ranil with no parliament majority. Will he suffer the same faith?

    You are the Prime Minister of the people of the country and the Leader in their hearts. Even when you did not have power you were their real leader. RW is now only the PM at Temple Trees, the Western Ambassadors and Colombo English speaking cocktail Circuit.

    We have backup for everything, even for PM's.

    Terminator> Monday, 29 October 2018 02:37 PM

    No wonder, you will be the next president and Gotabaya will be the next prime minister.

    Work under the advice of Maha Sangha. That is the secret of success.

    joshua Monday, 29 October 2018 04:18 PM

    Your days numbered. Already 10 SLFPers are going to act independently without supporting either party. From where are you getting the 113. From hell?

    Andrew Monday, 29 October 2018 05:39 PM

    You are the prime minister . Gothabaya will be Hitler as a Buddhist priest has suggested. God help Sri Lanka.Andrew
