In Sri Lanka politics is a sexually transmitted disease. It all started with Bandaranayake and his family then Rajapaksa and his offsprings and to be followed by Premadasa and Sirisena. They all did one thing and only one thing. They paralyse the country. That JR is the biggest culprit. No where in the world has such a family orientated political system.
Reply to Mr Ranjith:
Re: family orientated political systems.
Other countries do have these.
E.g. US Bush junior who started the illegal war in Iraq, his father Bush senior and his brother.
e.g. 2 US today- Daughter of Trump rides high as an advisory; so too does her Jewish husband Jared Kushner. Possible reason for pro-Israel stance.
e.g. 3 Ghandi family in India
e.g. 4. Bhutto family in Pakistan
e.g. 5. Trudeau in Canada, son of Trudeau Snr
That said, politics should be open to anyone, not just dynastic political families.
Historical evidence shows that those who come to power with lots af fanfare, kiribath and crackers, turn out to be the biggest disasters.
Pity they cannot think outside the box and nominate a ‘commoner’ who has a proven track record.
To Ms. Fareena F’elly, Please don’t worry it is only a nomination. At this juncture we do not know Gota gonna win or lose. With all the good things done by Ranil et al from January 2015 how can they lose? BTW, Fareena think out of the box and could you find a ‘commoner’ who has a proven track record? Do you know one? Easier said than done!
Yes, I can find a commoner.
Amarakoon, the Onlanka Blogger for Presidency.
A man with a vision, a man with a solution to every problem, a man who loves the wilderness (Vilpattu) and the empire, a man who has a deep understanding of Fallopian tubes (health), a man who stands up to the challenges of VP and his community.
Well, Amarakoon is the man of the moment, my dear citizens.
Thank you Ms. Fareena I am sure this is out of the box suggestion. I accept your suggestion and would like to appoint you as my campaign manager and later you will be in the cabinet as Minister of women affaires. I am sure then you can stop Child marriages and polygamy! Actually I am over the moon.
Its a good move.
But, if he appoint any crooks who are around him, then wont win.
GR should inform to the country about his ministerial post before the election.
He is not only dumping the SLPP catchers, he is dumping his illustrious brother as well.
The Viyath Maga (learned and disciplined ex-Forces personnel) sector of the SLPP and the UNP (who has technocrats) will form a National Government at the Parliamentary Elections.
Thank you for your appreciation, Mr Amarakoon.
Great pleasure to be your Campaign Manager.
Let us commence the campaign and go round the country in a three wheeler explaining issues and solutions at grassroots levels to achieve a swelling support for your views which will significantly challenge the manifestos of traditional political parties.
That’s great Fareena,
With Mr Amarakoon’s blessings, I offer to join in the 3 wheeler campaign for Mr Amarakoon’s Presidential Bid.
We will travel all towns and villages in North, South, East, West and Central Sri Lanka.
We will send shivers down the spines of the Political Party Candidates.
We will request Blogger Ranjith to be our driver.
We will win, 100% sure.
Mr Amarakoon, please be assured no cyanide capsules will be used in our campaign.
