    Look, I really don't think any right minded citizen of this country give a hoot what these guys do in there or what they earn. We only need the right to live in this country "PEACEFULLY' without being hindered or bullied around by PSD/MSD billy boys. In that context "Parliment in the Eve' is a right step in the right direction...

    Point to think.......

    Do you say that voters do not have right to look into what they say and do in there?.Very funny :)

    Tuesday, 18 May 2010 08:30 AM

    Yes Anura good for them bad for poor citizens

    Unlike ordinary citizens, Members of Parliament need more time to take rest and sleep as they are engaged in service to the public round the clock. So this new arrangements seems to suit them well and give them more flexibility to get up late after their nocturnal activities as well.

    I think it is better to reduce the motor traffic in the morning.

    Tuesday, 18 May 2010 09:42 AM

    The outcome of changing the time would be same; unproductive and boring.

    Do you think they think of the voters after they get in there - only how to make money or wait five years and get a pension for life.

    Will the sittings be commenced after all honourable members having the sumptuous lunch at the Parliamentary canteen? May God Bless the country!

    Tuesday, 18 May 2010 10:24 AM

    It is only to enjoy heavily subsidised dinner in addition to lunch at public expense.

    Tuesday, 18 May 2010 10:39 AM

    Oh Good! Now this will worsen rush hour traffic as intersections will be closed as an when VVIPs travel back home.

    Paliament meets at 1.00 pm to enable Fonseka to attend the Courts-Martial, in the morning

    Tuesday, 18 May 2010 07:56 AM
