    What a shocking display of what can only be described as mob hooliganism by elected members of the government. What sort of message is being sent to the Sri Lanka people and the world.

    How come "one shot " did not come for rescue.

    All the President's men can do anything they please except keep their promises to the voter! It is a wonder they have not found a scape goat among the UNP to bash for the prevailing bad weather, except for Johnston who blames the UNP for the hike in prices. Naivety does not come any better!!!

    Dravid Mini band is exposed and the naked truth is the diaspora votes. So this is why this guy was pleading us to stop the war.

    Is an MP of the opposition that powerful....?

    Wonder will the president at the airport. Mps must help HE in creating a good image locally and internationally, instead further damaging his image.

    impartial Thursday, 02 December 2010 05:47 AM

    This will damaged the image of Sri Lanka. If this continues it wil be bad to the proud of SL.

    Our fellows are good in fight against each other. MPs need to go for Karate or Wrestling classes to handle such situations.


    PD Thursday, 02 December 2010 01:24 PM

    JJ may have organised SF's release protest.JJ has no influence on the Tamils' protest. Why find a scape goat?
