    This conflict is simple. RW is a high class person and MS is an agriculturist and does not belong to the Sri Lankan political elite. It is like oil and water they never mix. So one has to get rid of the other by any means necessary

    We have a very biased Speaker. So, until the SC ruling finalized, better prorogue.

    " He urged all Parliamentarians" - at least if you are capable of watching TV and understand what is happening you could well reign in (if you are not scared of not being in terra firma) your cahoots who are disrupting proceedings in parliament.

    Majority of heads in parliament with external elements vs the majority Sri Lanka's. Hold elections and get a fresh mandate without running away.

    To avoid the Parliament getting Prorogued, you need to get prorogued. For that a majority vote needs to be for the UNF to stay on and Ranil needs to come back as PM, so that a buffoon like you will give ur resignation and leave. Thereafter, Ranil needs to elect Sajith as his predecessor in a few hours after you have vacated.

    Why can't Mahinda and his gang behave like a human being, looks like all are mad dogs.I think the armed forces should step inside the parliament to go on the proceedings, otherwise you can't control of the unruly barbarians.
