    Gov ministers must be taught ministerial conduct, decorum and language. Mervyn Silva is a case in point.

    RETURN ABDUL CADER TO HIS OLD PRTY(UNP)

    We should identify the reason behind Cader's foul language. MS should have provokem in a manner he coud not be able to control.

    In this incident, MS also partly contributing to the outcome as he is the one initated the issue by an act of provocation.

    Mr. Speaker, you should have taken against MS as well for provoking Cader.

    Dear Prof Wick,

    If he wants to chase out all uneducated cads, then more than half of the lot has to leave the parliament.

    Mr speaker this is an assembly do not point at individuals .Rather warning should be general .This warning though done with good idea looks highly individual

    Sicillian Saturday, 27 November 2010 09:56 AM

    Dear Mr. Cader,

    How can you use language limited only for the doctor.

    Fanam Saturday, 27 November 2010 12:15 PM

    Citizen, dont you have this basic General Knowledge. Sri Lankans speak Sinhala, Tamil, English or a small amount of Malay. There is no other language in Sri Lanka for your information. Arabic is a language used in most Middle East and some African countries. The reason why Muslims know Arabic is due to the reason that their Holy Book Quran is written and recited in Arabic.

    David DWK Saturday, 27 November 2010 12:30 PM

    Speaker, we expect you to this type of warning against this type of persons using nasty language. Please take stern action to prevent Mr. Cader behaving like this again

    Cader has already seen the 'doctor' as advised by the Speaker and is following his advice to the letter!!!!

    Marie Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:53 AM

    When these guys were young there was decorum in the Parliament and use of such language would have been political suicide. Now.......

    KABAB Saturday, 27 November 2010 02:23 PM

    Cader must be trying to go parallell with MS.

    Anton/Paris Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:54 PM

    But, but, Cader's mother tongue and that of Mervyn Silva's seems to be GREEK.

    rep Saturday, 27 November 2010 03:55 PM

    Really Citizen are you that naive and stupid ?

    Senaka Wickramasingh Saturday, 27 November 2010 04:25 PM

    Chase away Dr as well. May be this is his fault.

    Thomas Saturday, 27 November 2010 05:09 PM

    Cader's last days, let him shout , hoot & rest.

    gona Sunday, 28 November 2010 12:23 AM

    Should be suspended from attending Parliament for a month

    Pawlpakse Sunday, 28 November 2010 08:23 AM

    Speaker should be aware of the parliment language that is in fashion now. Therefore, the speaker should be sent on language training.

    apsara Sunday, 28 November 2010 01:24 PM

    As per Dr. Mervin's Theorey, Cader shall be tied to a tree.

    Fair N Square Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:52 AM

    ah he wants to get in the good books of the ruling party and family too it seems. Sadly it misfired. Grow up Mr Cader or leave the field. Dont give him the Yellow card But he Red card. If our kids watch whats happening in the parliament, they'd think using obscene language and acting tough is OK in our society, NOT.

    Disgusted Voter Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:03 AM

    Mr. Cader, you are too old for anything now!

    MR 1/2/3 Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:12 AM

    Hey Speaker ,
    IWhy , what's the reason for your warning?,Is that language limited to our Doctor Mervyn only?

    Damien Perera Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:19 AM

    Well done Speaker, Sir. Hope you will strictly follow this when other MPs, particularly Minister Mervyn Silva, also resort to obscenity.

    Fanam Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:21 AM

    Cader Nana has to learn how to address people, in fact there are many parliamentarians who should be taught how to talk. It would be appreciative if the parliament can set some rules for even public addressing.
    Especially the way Mervin Silva talks using words like 'ballo' 'bambuwa' etc

    w.g.l Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:24 AM

    let him speak the mother language

    DHA Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:47 AM

    Thugs paradise in the name of Democracy.....

    Kan Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:48 AM

    more obscene languages MPs talk, more they will get promotions, that is rule of the day now.Kan

    Ramzeel Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:51 AM

    Well done Mr. Speaker this is what we expect from an independent an unbiased speaker.

    Fayad Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:02 AM

    Please send them to a language class ,Cader & Dr.can be in the same class.
    He is setting a bad example to the young MP's

    sanus Saturday, 27 November 2010 06:59 AM

    maybe sporty Mangy would have ignored aging Cader.

    Citizen Saturday, 27 November 2010 07:14 AM

    What's his mother language by the way? Arabic may be!!!

    Prof Wickramatillake Saturday, 27 November 2010 07:16 AM

    Well done elder Rajapaksa! chase all the uneducated cads out of Parliament. There are few more you can add to the waste bag

    Saleem Saturday, 27 November 2010 07:54 AM

    MPs must set an example to ordinary people, if they cannot be civilised, they must step down.

    D.E.M. Ocracy Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:16 AM

    WELL DONE MR. SPEAKER..... DO NOT ACT LIKE YOUR BROTHERS..... BE UPRIGHT IN YOUR DECISIONS AND DEALINGS AND THEN GOD WILL BLESS YOU.

    Dheen Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:30 AM

    This guy is a shady character. He betrayed the UNP and joined the government as he was involved in a case. Now he has lost his head with power. He has simply revealed his character by trivial actions.

    Riyazi-Dorking Saturday, 27 November 2010 08:35 AM

    When these guys were young they keep quiet !! Almost at their end of their career trying to be young,aggressive,dominant etc.......
