    Fact - Both Presidential & Parliamentary elections won by MR & UPFA.
    Fantasy - idiotic comments & utterances by those who hate GOSL - MR. - hoping that Sri Lanka will go "down hill".
    Real Life - President MR in power for next 7 years & UPFA in power at least next 6 years.
    So get use to it - the Patriotic / Nationalistic people of Sri Lanka has spoken / voted.

    I totally agree with Lankawick... People have spoken and decided what they want. So I guess everyone better respect that and respect themselves and work for the country.

    All the same, people are entitled to their point of view and there is a very significant portion of the population that care for the country but not by your apparent definition. It works both ways....no one is obligated to revere the government.

    Sri Lankans seem to have a poor notion of this but the government is there to serve us. Not vice versa.

    A true COMPANY scenario. The oldest is in the Chair, the next oldest is the President, the next has disguised himself as Head of the Gestapo, the youngest is in charge of the air above and water around Sri Lanka with a 10 per cent tag and the youngest of the brood 'prince of Hambantota'. Well done.

    Definitely a "subha anaagathayak" for the MPs and "tightning the belt" for others.

    We all want the government to succeed as good citizens but at the same time want a good opposition to make the government accountable. With Ranil at the helm it is wishful thinking!
