    Keep away from your leader, He can get you .

    citizen silva Thursday, 16 September 2010 09:52 AM

    When he returns to sri Lanka will sit in the Govt side

    Ibnu Batuta Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:13 AM

    Is it a kind of bribe.......?

    Darshini Thursday, 16 September 2010 10:50 AM

    It seems now a days even leopards can change spots !!!
    What a contrast . The unbelivable is happening .

    Congratulations to another patriotic politician who is not looking for any perks, but will accept any post to build the nation! Soon this Johnny will also be a Cabinet Minister and Ranil will be the happiest person in the world as he has one less rival to face. Thanks to the leadership qualities of Ranil, UNP does not need any enemies to ruin the party.

    Dushantha Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:18 AM

    This is another useless Man to UNP. Only number of year are counted. Nothing done to the electorate, party or the country.

    Kasthuri Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:18 AM

    Its a Kind of enthusiasm.

    Saradial Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:30 AM

    Invitation only for delegation team?

    Dushantha Thursday, 16 September 2010 11:52 AM

    Ruwan, whether I voted for UNP or not is none of your business. On the same way you must be happy to have a clean cabinet of ministers with proven records and cardboard hero's with most preferential votes. With allegations, you must be coming under that umbrella. Wake up Man this is Sri Lanka and the candidate himself does not know if he won the election correctly,

    ruwan Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:45 AM

    That means UNP voters cast their vote for people who have done nothing to electorate, party, or country I guess and you are a UNP voter.

    ajith Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:47 AM

    Don't forget to visit Las Vegas at the expense of tax payers money!!!!!!!.

    tojejoe Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:50 AM

    Another Jonny

    Smart Aleck Thursday, 16 September 2010 12:14 PM

    Yes, of course. The few who oppose will ultimately end up in jail.

    banda Thursday, 16 September 2010 06:53 AM

    Lateral Thinking – what if MR has bribed RW not to set down, so that UNP’s members can join MR. Are we leading into a single party politics??

    Bluff Bluff Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:03 AM

    What else can we do other than laughing looking at you all. Its good for our health at least.

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:08 AM

    Ranil where are you stand.

    I Hussein Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:09 AM

    This is to show the UN forum that what a pragmatic and practical leader he is, by involving opposion as well in the deligation.

    Ranjith Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:13 AM

    This is a very good move both from MR and JA. This is for the country and National re-concilliations. Fro now, Foreign power have no more chances to be able to topple Sri lanka, (and not MR or RW in the future).
    In few days time, many right minded citizen will join hand with MR and few ideots like JVP will stay to cry on the pavement. Well dome JA & MR!..

    Wasantha Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:22 AM

    Next invitaion to join hands with MR. This type of shameless, greedy people can say lot of things to coverup their dirty tricks. However, big Jonny knows that this is the "Last Chance".

    Percy Mandawala Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:24 AM

    As if President has nobody else in the government to accompany him to UN

    Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 16 September 2010 01:19 PM

    Ranil is failure leader UNP ever brought, but all going for money & materials. This is not a gentleman way.

    Suraj Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:28 AM

    If Ranil stays in leadership process anymore, everyone will join hands with MR.

    Geronimo Thursday, 16 September 2010 01:27 PM

    No. Just the first step!

    sanus Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:32 AM

    Big John has been promised the ministry of Montessories!

    Nandimithra Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:32 AM

    Long John getting ready for the long jump ??? Anything for a Free Ride with our money.

    arshad Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:33 AM

    He should not accept this invitation for the sake of the country

    Emms Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:33 AM

    Its better shout down the UNP office and declare bankruptcy!

    Ralph Anthony Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:36 AM

    Being a honoured citizen of the country and the choice of Wattala. do not fall into the trap

    sam Thursday, 16 September 2010 07:39 AM
