Dicipline and good ethics are the basic pillars of sudtainable success.If anyone goes against these fundamentals in the name of Democracy,better act rationally to counter the deterioration.this is a good move and apply across the party and bring back the dicipline.

If you want a Party to Win their should be a rule and Their should be a leader who can take firm Decisions, This is what is not taking place. Those who cant fall in line needs to leave, After all if the party is not democratic why do they want to stick and wait.

UNP will end up in this way. This man together with leader will do it in proper manner.

The GOP is doomed for good. It is time for a new Leadership to come forth with a very clear vision and a mission which will be the vote winning slogan from the beginning. There should not be any religious inclinations shown or sought. Keep religion out and address the public issues. It also means fishing people from the existing politicians who are brave enough to withstand pressures from the GOSL.

One thing Ranil is a very good administrator
