    Next 6 years I wont support him too. Political greed. Step down Ranil and give the younger generation a chance. You are a looser.

    A SPENT FORCE, retire as opposition LEADER, under MR GOSL Good for you

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 01 December 2012 09:40 AM

    Ranil seems to be happy after bagging the leadership of UNP for the next 6 years because he knows Mahinda will be President again so that he can comfortably sit as the Leader of the Opposition as well for the next 6 years.

    hello Saturday, 01 December 2012 10:57 PM

    Next 6 years I won't support him.

    mary Saturday, 01 December 2012 10:08 AM

    He has silenced the all the "puss wedillas" of UNP. Its time all the insiders who pull his legs to appease the rulers unite and do some soul searching. The unity among party leadership will make the UNP a winning force in near future.

    I like that think he is wearing around his neck. Designed and made by TA or RK?

    kautilya Sunday, 02 December 2012 03:35 AM

    Ranil will strengthen the hand of MR for next 6 years, while he remain as leader of the opposition..By the end of the 6 th year UNP will become an another 3 wheel party. Thanks for Ranill for his cunning politics and disappointing and betraying the UNP;ers
