    Utter waste of time. What can the opposition do. President can do anything he wants and justify his action getting the AG department ruling for his favour.They think that they have given the mandate to anything. Let them to dance until the water boils.

    Historically these budget debates were never productive.

    No matter how long they discuss, We all know the outcome. When the government has majority in parliament with brainless mp's they can win any debate with the support of them. In fact, no point having such debate. Here is the result: Every government proposal went pass with majority. The list starts with 210 billion to Gota and continues until countless ministers and mp's become happy.
    Then, what about general public. Well, we all are losers, aren't we. We voted for them; so we have to face these. Good luck SL.

    Parliament has come down to the level of a mere talk shop now. The Government will do whatever they want anyway: so, why waste so much time debating.
