This lady stands no chance against this onslaught.

Wonderful news and Viva Sri Lanka!
GoSL You have shown political maturity not seen over the past where under Ponil/Mongreli/awaRajtha/etc bunch, where Sri Lanka was a football and soon LTTE would have scored their “We Tamil” racist separate state. Ineed Time Sri Lanka got tough with these kinds of, evidently, Pro-LTTE-urged scum that tend to comeup every now & then, especially when thely see a juicy opportunity to further their agenda, i.e. An opportunity to ‘kill’ Sri Lanka and get their racist separate state which they could not get even after 30 years of unleashing horrific, sadiistic terrorism in the country! Kudos GR the Brave, War-Winning Govt. of SL !!!
