    With a heavy heart I say this. Our supreme institution i.e. Parliament has gone to the dogs !!

    SilverHawks, don't insult dogs. They are noble animals with far better qualities than some parliamentarians.

    This is the clearest clarification of the impeachment drama. Thank you MP Kiriella.

    I too felt ashamed as a voter when you said, "ona gonekuta puluwan yudda karanna" in the parliament during the peak of the war. MP Kiriella is one among many that should be responsible for the current UNP's plight.

    Forget about the war. Think about the future of entire human population of our country.Only the trators of the nation would support the government.

    Then you can resign. Good for the country and the party as well.

    Why are you hanging around, please resign and go.

    Why are you continuing to be a member of a parliament that you are shamed of ?? Please answer.

    We felt ashamed because a person like you are still in the Parliament.
