For him the bird in the hand is worth two in the bush

Many Diyawanna members who once switched their allegiance to the Betel Leaf are now making overtures to the Green party leaders hoping for a welcome return to the fold.



Meanwhile, some politicos are said to be striking bizarre deals in a bid to brighten their political prospects.

For instance, a senior Green party politico gone into involuntary retirement following his defeat at the last Parliamentary elections had approached a young former Green Diyawanna member now turned Blue with a strange proposal. “Look here, son”, he addressed the young politico. “ Parliamentary general elections are only three months away. If I can enter the fray as a Minister, my chances of winning will be much better. Can’t you stand down to make way for me to enter the Diyawanna council? I consider it a great favour.  If you give way, my becoming a Minister is just a matter of course!”

The senior politico also assured the young one that he will return the favour with a huge bonus after the coming elections. “You will never   regret doing me this favour,” he added.

It did not take long for the young politico to say a firm ‘no’ to this request.  After all, he knew one bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.
