take you all birthday also as a big party well done this the we have to go like this
sarath g Thursday, 28 October 2010 08:18 PM
Lets declare the day as a nation holiday and celebrate it every coming year. After all the second term election was one of the biggest jokes, if he had done it now he would have lost it.. MR did it just after the war was over inorder to win it...
This is greed at it's best, and the stupid ministers are not talking about it because they dont want to loose any benefits, after all if they do not support they will be sued for corruption, every minister and deputy minister knows this.

Reminds me the 'Kings' days in SriLanka! Weeks long celebration, free food, entertainment bla bla bla. And the end of the week, all have to work like dogs again to keep the Kings happy :P. Are we heading there?

All MPs look more happier than MR i guess... But how about ordinary people, can they happy about this? Another 6 years of drama begins soon...

Looking at their overworked bodies, resembling just skin and bones, what is wrong in a week long celebration to put some meat on. After all they are ministers of a King.
Yehiya-Doha Thursday, 28 October 2010 02:09 PM
This minister still sleeping.New minister developed the health sector.Send to General hospital.
