    What a vast of valuble time of a honerable minister for 2 hours.
    This is a sabortage of anti government forces.
    We need a debate in the parliament and to punish the culprits.

    Children are starving, patients are suffering and dying due to lack of medicines, people are losing their jobs and facing economic hardships but these buffoons are spending taxpayers money for travel by helicopters. Why can't they use public transportation?

    Even helicopters dislike carrying idiots.

    TDDC Sunday, 12 September 2010 11:40 AM

    I was worried about the pilot.

    This is not a good way to comment when a disastrous situation happened.

    Jerome Amerasinghe Sunday, 12 September 2010 12:44 PM

    As much as some of the frustrated Citizens are quick to curse the Minister or wish ill well and talk of tax payers money, we should understand that some of these Ministers do work hard and Min. Johnston Fernando is one who's hands on and known to be in his Ministry even after 10 pm most days of the week attending and addressing issues under his perview.

    It's sad that some of our society seem to be thriving and enjoying the downfall or close call of death of a fellow human coming from the land of the Dhamma.

    We must allow the M Ps to import duty free helicopters and they can use their drivers to fly them!!!

    JONSTON GOOD LUCK FOR YOU THIS TIME

    DON Sunday, 12 September 2010 02:33 PM

    The govt ministers travel above people's heads. They are above the country's law. They live in the sky above. They show their flying colors by ruining national wealth. They deceive people by promising castles in the sky.

    good luck for on board members.
