    UNP wants foreign probe for anything and everything, why not have a foreign probe to find out the secret behind all UNP MPs jumping the ship.

    Yes. Only an independent preferably a foreign investigation will bring the truth to light.

    Whats with the UNP???? Are you not playing into the hands of the International Community??? If you want a probe, get an independent probe conducted by a mix of people in Sri Lanka without creating problems for our mother-land.

    What UNP really wants is foreign intervention to put them into goverment as they have no chance of winning elections. A sad confession indeed! UNP was even ready to give into LTTE demands and their Ealam. Shame on you RW.
