    But they don't have money to run their hospitals.

    This is unlikely given the current economic scenario. The money will come from the East rather than the West.

    Britain would outwardly show decency but its true intentions are not honourable.So let us stay withChina and keep Britain at a distance.Only the Christiansand Catholics of Sri Lanka would disagree with me because they have no loyalty to Sri Lanka.

    We have heard this same story over and over for the past so many decades. At the rate we heard this, by now this country would have been the most sought after investment paradise of the whole world. Every president went on a world tour came back with this same story.
