    I do not think politicians will suffer from loans taken by the Govt. in the long run. It will be the poor people who will suffer.

    At least now our rulers must open their eyes and do something more useful, to bring some revenue to the country and generate more jobs to the locals, out of IMF loan money than building high ways which benefit a few. I really cannot understand as to why our rulers do not do this,either ignorant or adamant. If we go on like this, defenitly there will be a grinding halt of the system.

    It's not gonna happen the way it is depicted. As the water reaches boiling point there will remain only that scrawny citizen Perera in the pan!!!

    Reminds me of the old saying where the crab enjoyed the swim as the water heats.

    One man's meat is another man's poison.

    The dance of the crab - until the water starts boiling!

    Rulers will enjoy and disappear. Our future GENERATION have to pay back.

    sam Monday, 15 October 2012 02:57 AM

    OK .. we r not paying back the loan ... Do u want us to send a white van to IMF?

    true sri lankan Monday, 15 October 2012 03:46 AM

    Best cartoon for the year...

    It is always the younger generation that wiil be affected.

    Yuri Monday, 15 October 2012 04:36 AM

    Getting Loan, its the best performance of the Third countries politicians. in these countries they call it its big development, not from the tax payer

    Neva gnth ban choon Monday, 15 October 2012 04:58 AM

    Commissions have been collected, all the treasure have been dug up, and every possible loan is taken. Only thing left is to sell the Sri Lankan people as slaves.

    shaib Monday, 15 October 2012 05:06 AM

    don't worry,still wimal weeawansa could't find the world bank switch.once he find everything will be ok.

    Concerned Citizen Monday, 15 October 2012 05:17 AM

    From newspaper reports I thought loans from China are under far worse (high interest rates) although there may not be conditions such as those of the IMF to affect the current generations. If this is true, perhaps another cartoon can show the future generations being fried/boiled by the Chinese loans?

    Nivad Cabral should have been here to fill the glass.
