A brand new opposition political front in the offing?

It was, no doubt, a powwow of great political significance, perhaps reminiscent of the historic Yamuna conference the way back in early fifties that laid the foundation for uniting scattered opposition forces and founding of the SLFP. 

It was held at the residence of the offspring of the ‘Boralugoda Lion’ who took over his father’s mantle.  The main participants in the discussion other than the host were the bearded red maverick who ended his revolutionary politics as a docile follower of the deposed Big Boss, the vociferous ‘patriot’ of fast-unto-death fame and the Western council member of ‘double cross’ fame.  The powwow got added significance when the deposed Big Boss walked in to a hero’s welcome when it was in progress.

However, the deposed Big Boss was more an observer than an active participant in the discussion, they say.

Birds of a feather had dispersed after reaching agreement to meet again to work out their political agenda.

It is widely believed that this conference of opposition stalwarts is a clear pointer to the founding of a brand new political front to take on the Maitri regime.

    By themselves the group is nobody to cause flutter in politics and will not be elected if the first past the post method is brought back. So to gain employment the disposed big boss is being called to lead them.

    I wonder what the name would be? Politically Displaced Peoples Front (PDPF) is more suitable cos people who would vote and politicos involved all would be displaced people.
