    End of the day, Mahinda, Ranil & Somawansa win this game. Mahinda gets 6 more years as President & Ranil gets 6 more years as UNP leader. Somawansa can shoot from his mouth for another 6 years.

    Most opinions are out of touch with relaity. Politicians are not doing a social service. . they need to earn enough for their retirement in just 6 years. In the USA , bank CEO's pay themselves $ 40 million as compensation.They are paid a commssion for their sales pitch MR has to develop his Priovinvce as it had been neglected . He will build fisheries harbours in Marthagal, or Myliddy.Sri lanka will be like Singapore with undersea power supply from India .The IMF loan has to be spent in building Provinicial roads in the war devastated areas , that is the North and East.Tamils will be allowed to live any where in Ceylon.This is the reconciliation .
    A united country with common culture and three langyages. Either MR or SF wil be allright as long as there is democracy.
