    These are the traitors who should be sent in fishing boat & sent to Australia & canada to promote blood tourism

    civilian Thursday, 19 August 2010 04:52 PM

    Why be satisfied with being 66. What about coming among the best 7? Being better than India, is not a big deal

    Healthy and prosperous life to its citizens? I am sure Newsweek magazine has sold a record breaking editions in sri lanka in order for us to vote for ourselves.

    What was the position when the Newsweek took survey last year? Whether it is an improvement or deceleration?

    UNL Thursday, 19 August 2010 08:11 AM

    Just making a statement does not make one a traitor. You should be careful with your words bro!
