    Great News a good lesson to all siblings of Politicos, everyday is not Christmas, your day will come one day. he may have tried his usual antics with a lady and got the works. I hope he changes his ways at least now before he gets killed- Mervin take note, this is not your grand father Dutugemunu's era.

    Just like the royal baby, an insignificant jobless parasite to the nation. His existence has no bearing what so ever. Why are we all bombarded about these stupidity when there are so much more important issues that matter? Say's a lot about the media and its consumers.
