    Look at it this way! Had they not come, they. Would have nothing and just be at home. At least they got to see galle, face and colombo. If not for Jo, they would not had a chance of their final trip and just still be in their homes. Oh and they would have realized it for a rally full of people when they reached.

    How did the day we celebrate workers become political? Or reduced to free liquor and a lunch packet to become the crowd for politician's benefit? Please ban politics on May 1st. It's a disgrace to use the workers on the day we celebrate them.
