    Well, the proof is in the pudding, and our pudding exploded! No doubt, failure to attend security meetings contributed to that!

    My3 is the main responsible. I guess they will arrest him after the election and also MR has not forgotten what the hopper eating traitor has done to him.

    May be MS did not understand the Technical Jargon used at these meetings! He has repeatedly confessed that he is not educated. Can we blame him for not attending? Ranil and CBK were responsible for loading something on him, which he is incapable of carrying.
