    Why not have Ranil as the Foreign Minsiter, Wima as the Social Culture Media Minister and General as the Defence Minister. Most the conflits will be solved.

    I am certain Wimal did not get so many votes. This was
    pre arranged.

    Ranil can enter the Guiness Book of World Records for being the only politician for losing so many times, but accepts failure with grace!

    Now what will happen to Gen. SF ? Now that all election is over can you'll please release the poor fellow...!!!

    No way could Weerawansa have won so many in Colombo. Ec commissioner and Basil have the answers.

    Colombo is fast becoming a Sinhala fortress - no longer will we get the English-speaking educated elite - because of the emergence of the new rich. Dont WW & PCR belong to the new rich.

    Mr Ranil... you don't know how to play for the gallery !

    Saturday, 10 April 2010 03:38 AM
