    Proud to have a young minister long neglected just bcos he was from a rural politico family shining for the country with his more than average knowledge of financial matters of a bankrupt country they inherited due their own past leaders

    Don't just evaluate politicians with your limited knowledge. Have you experienced the calibre of Ministers such as Dr N M Perera, Prof C Suntharalingam, C Sittampalam, Lalith Athulathmudali and Ronnie De Mel. If not, please learn about them and then benchmark our present ministers with them. You will then know the gap is wide as an ocean.

    All these IMF BULSHIT stories should be STOPPED, electing a new leader through people's mandate, we should encourage people to get out of the BAD LOCK of IMF to which Ranils is committed to pleasing the US that brought Ranil to POWER in a US-CONSPIRACY.
