  • Tinpot president and his dumb ideas Friday, 23 February 2024 11:36 AM

    Next the president is scheduled to meet with the private secretary to the US ambassador. President loves to be photographed with anybody with fair skin.

    Since when did Senegal's president have fair skin? You can say anything about Ranil but not that he is a racist. What is true is that he never misses a photo opportunity, but that won't help him win the presidential election.

    Same goes for the subversives who had never sat for a photo shoot with foreign dignitaries! At least the President will not wear ‘branded’ casual wear!

    Dumb opinions. Sucks

    Not only our President , our whole society loves to be photographed with people of fair skin. Whether we like it or not, the colour of the skin plays a very important role in this world . I only realised this truth at the age of 20 when I first landed in London to study for my undergraduate degree many years ago. I was called “ darky “ and “blacky” by the whites many times in the streets of London. I was not the only one, all of us who went to England from Asian countries for undergraduate education suffered open racism simply because of our colour.This is how British educated Asians became anti White and our thinking is so different from people back home in Sri Lanka. We are now senior professionals but we fully understand the “ colour politics” which no Sri Lankan who has not left Sri Lanka at younger would ever understand,that includes our President too.Asians are not going to get the respect by showing our beautiful beaches,Asia has to beat the West in Science and Technology.

    The dinosaur president is suffering from colonial inferiority complex. That is why he hates his own people.

    Another "US PLOT" on the card against Sri Lanka's political arena.

    Tell him to hold the presidential election and go home.

    Extraordinary ecosystem for a small island, so diverse, ask Julie about that and a strategic position.But at the end of the day it is how we handle our resources for the benefit of the people many of whom are barely surviving that will determine its success for SL ,not how much it helps the geopolitics of regional powers many of whom are keen to expand here and why not when they are teeming with people

    Mr Deputy Secretary Verma…Please be careful about your wallet whenever you hold discussions with Sri Lankan Politicians because they will pickpocket it without letting you know in any manner . You know, Mr Deputy Secretary….they have almost robbed the country , its resources and wealth but people still don’t know anything about it. So please look after yourself, your money and personal belongings till you will leave this godforsaken country.

    @@@Jaffna Tamil , You spoke the truth that needs intellect and courage , well said !!!!

    Yankee US and UK are accomplishing their geopolitical needs at the hands of ethnic Indians
