Responding to President Maithripala Sirisena’s remarks yesterday, UNP MP Mangala Samaraweera said in a twitter message that he would rather be a butterfly than a leech.

The President yesterday said at a rally in Colombo that in the previous government, the decisions were taken by a 'Samanala gang' not by the Cabinet.

    Regardless of what these politicians say back n forth, its terrible to realize that nobody cares about the financial crisis we are in right now. New notes worth 1500 million have been printed just to pump cash to MP's and SL must pay $1.7 billion to world bank end of this year. (Dec 2018). on the verge of becoming GREECE in 2009. Yet MS talks about butterflies. Damn!

    Never was a supporter of UNP, I support now as both the President and MR have gone from bad to worse.Should not insult people the way how the president did.

    We are not for the boys group in the UNP either. But that will be fought at a different ring. We first finish this fight with an uneducated, doubled toungued, misfit MS and lay it to rest.

    Both parties should refrain using such language as they are both the same when it comes to running the country and people are disgusted We are showing the world who we are, pathetic and irresponsible behavior on both side...Do not under estimate people,,,pls.

    Float like a butterfly sting like a bee. Then get lost.

    Need to put some soapy water on the leach to have its suckers released, and then put the leech in salt water to distroy it.

    We knew this since 2014, the converted can be converted again. Its a shame all Sri Lankans and this symphonic politicians didn't see it. And it's worst than anything that all have now took aside and blame the puppet.
