    Please ask him to remind her how Tony Blair lied and cheated justifying attack in Iraq. She is doing the same thing and the purpose is to get rid of the stock pile of missiles and claim that money from UN member states.

    waste of public money....i still can remember in 2015 January 8 after he won in the election, he went for first foreign trip, like a normal passenger...just to make a drama to show the difference what happened in MR regime and himself. But now he is also doing what MR did. No difference... maywa tamai kiyane pada porru show

    The Commonwealth is older than the United Nations or the European Union so I don't think it's a waste of time - Oh, and it does benefit us but I'm gonna let you figure out how.

    wait and see Sunday, 15 April 2018 05:43 PM

    yes you are right.. I also saw that video when he passed by Bandarnayake International Airport. He forgot all what he promised for the people in 2015. Now he is doing the opposite. We will wait and see whether he will contest in presidential election again. But he said he will not do that. Because he not a power hunger

    After ruining what was left from the last government he is going to ask for help … in return he can teach how a developed country can be wrecked in to a third world in less than 3 months.

    Please inquire from UK government that whether they intent to appoint international court against Theresa May for illegal bombing of Syria, without UN concurrence. If so kindly remind that we have our Emeritus Prof. G.L Peris for the post.

    MS has wasted tax payers money since he started his sick tricks in early Feb. this year and is continuing his charade without any challenge by the cabinet.What is RW and his cabinet doing when the country is burning in a mess created by MS who has become a joker in the government. Tax payers money is being wasted and the cabinet is not taking corrective action on the President who has no clue to running a governmentThe PM, the Maha Sangha, people have no choice but to get rid of the President on the grounds of mental incompetence by way of peaceful protest.There must be laws in the country for the cabinet to act.
