Five close loyalists of the Yahapalanya Big Boss were suspended from their Blue party membership by the Big Boss himself for turning against the party. Meanwhile, a politico from the Betel leaf rebel group called one of the suspended Blue members to express his regret over the punitive action.
“I feel that they should not have taken this step at this time,” the sympathetic rebel told the suspended member. “We are not at all concerned over this,” replied the suspended member. “In fact, we knew this was coming!”
“Don’t you think that this action at this stage has placed you at a disadvantage?” the surprised rebel asked.
“No, not at all. On the contrary, it has come to us as a blessing. So far, the voters did not know for sure whether we were Blue or Green. Now the suspension of our membership sends out in clear terms the message that the Blue party door is closed on us. This means the Green party supporters hereafter will have no second thoughts about voting for us!”
“Does it mean that this suspension is something preplanned?”
