    We have to question the SLFP nomination committee whether they are going to nominate Jokers to any district. If yes have to send them to Angoda. If No thanks. Gentlemen.

    No wise king will keep a simian as his guardian as long as he remembers the story of king Yasalalaka Tissa.

    All this talking, Mervin is worried he will be the next one to go to be investigated by the CID after DIG Vass Gunawardena.

    Mr. B. Wijeyasingha Friday, 21 June 2013 08:29 PM

    It will also ensure the continuation of the Rajapakse line. for If Mahindra Rajapakse was not to run again then Gotabaya Rajapakse would be an ideal candidate.

    anubu Friday, 21 June 2013 10:22 PM

    yes he has all connection

    lionl Friday, 21 June 2013 11:55 PM

    Mervin the great king is non other than General Fonseka.Gotabaya is is more like an ordinary soldier in front of the General.

    Tommy Sunday, 23 June 2013 01:28 AM

    Apply all the flavors on the kings, for survival. We don't mind calling "a king", for any fool. But don't say they are gods; the wrath of gods will be on you, if you do so.
