    good balanced interview from a objective decent politian

    DXB Tuesday, 25 September 2012 06:25 AM

    First you listen to his interview before make comments; unless you are a sadist and jelous of him . He is the only sitting barrister in Parliament . Wish you know how difficult to get awarded with Barrister title.

    Your correct place is UNP. But need hardwork to come to front. Father is hard work & honest politician. He love all nations.

    winchester Tuesday, 25 September 2012 10:19 AM

    great interview....don quixote and rupert are obviously donkies

    dayan Wednesday, 03 October 2012 01:45 AM

    Yes. After he joined the Govt.for greener pastures and betraying his father - in Law.

    People stay in politics even after violent deaths of family members. Why? Love of the country? Or just ensuring family status and income?

    bila Tuesday, 25 September 2012 10:25 AM

    U r a the Our Nest president.....

    perumal Monday, 01 October 2012 03:02 AM

    His father who could have injected some common sense into him is no more!!

    Medusa Wednesday, 26 September 2012 12:57 PM

    Navin should take part of the blame for UNP's plight for he with another load of traitors abandoned it for an fistful of perks! His father must be turning in his grave!!!

    River Mahaweli was a fortune for some 30 years before

    Truth and Sanity Tuesday, 25 September 2012 11:50 AM

    If you were half of what your late father was. The UNP will not face such a situation. Ashamed to see the offspring of great man such as honourable Gamini Dissanayake fading away as they use the lies of the present government as the basis for their political career.

    dasdas Tuesday, 25 September 2012 12:16 PM

    If you are really concern and love gentleman politics .. only choice is joining Ranil to form a government...

    sukumar Wednesday, 26 September 2012 08:50 AM

    Neither is the character of the person we voted in to parliament!!

    Cynic Thursday, 27 September 2012 06:38 AM

    Hey DXB, Becoming a Barrister is no big deal. If you have the cash you can go to UK or NZ and get it. It doesn't indicate more ability or brains but only more money.

    ase Wednesday, 26 September 2012 04:19 AM

    rubert is correct, makes no different how and what he talkes, just another flag which turnes with the wind, sad really sad.

    aslam Tuesday, 25 September 2012 04:40 AM

    A well qulified politician with all required qualifications such as Education , Political background . Ideal person to lead the Ministry of Education / Foreign affairs / Sports & youth affair.
    But Unfortunatley his qulifications and back-ground made him not to have the right postion, as President looks for the persons whom are not fit to handle the positions , like most of the ministers like...... ... ... !!

    Rubert Vanderkoon Tuesday, 25 September 2012 04:45 AM

    Another not-very-useful politician. Just a son of a former politician. No vision, no mission, just carrying on living by the public pocket using his father's name.

    Cobbler Saturday, 29 September 2012 11:27 AM

    Some wonder whether these sons are the real sons of those politicians.

    chris abey Wednesday, 26 September 2012 04:37 AM

    So why is he sitting in Parliament?Cant he practice? More lucrative in Parliament in addition to the fortune the family amassed during the Victoria Project.

    Chandana Dissanayake Thursday, 04 October 2012 04:38 AM

    Really,sensible interview for the time being .I appreciated as a voter of Nuwara Eliya distric . You should be in UNP.

    Denver Wednesday, 26 September 2012 05:38 AM

    good interview Dianne, i think you got' im

    Sad Tuesday, 02 October 2012 05:56 AM

    Yes Navin. When you behave like an UNP will definitely be NO MORE. You are an insult to your father and his legacy. You seriously dont have the backbone to fight like he did.
    Its a shame that you say such things when you are also part of the problem
