Yeah, Yeah, target 40,000 Mozzies with beards running retails stores in the provinces.
The T******a Army Commnader can do the job for you.
Get them mate, like the Tigres and vanquish without trace.
the widows will cru forevere, who cares, mate?
This person’s renunciation of US Citizenship has not been approved yet.
Most likely, it will not be accepted by the US Gov in the near future because of many court cases against him which could end up with victim compensation exceeding the R Family wealth reported in Forbes as USD 18 Billion.
You seem to be so sure about all of this. We will wait to see the outcome. I the meantime we are still waiting to see the outcome of the Central Bank robbery by RW and his bunch of crooks. Now this is fact not fiction.
The minorities including Tamil speaking citizens and Muslims will vote for this man to a massive victory if the UNP Candidate is Sajit Premadasa.
He is the only person who can tame the Bodu Bala Sena through power.
He is the only person who can decimate the Mercedes Mahanayakes and grant devolution to the Tamil speaking citizens.
Hail Gotabaya !
Quite correct Thuleepan,
Influential sections of the UNP are promoting the son of RP to the King’s chair.
The son of RP is only good at dishing out substandard housing and sewing machines to so-called UNP supporters.
The houses dished out at taxpayer expense in the 80’s are now derelict, unfit for habitation.
The father gained cheap poularity at taxpayer expense; the son follows the footsteps of the father.
GR offers a strongman leadership and he has the courage to provide leadership for a journey in positive development for the entire nation.
Absolutely on the spot Thuleepan,
The only hope for the minorities, Tamil and Muslim, lies with Gothabhaya Rajapaksa.
Sajith Premadasa, the UNP’s annointed Presidential Candidate, is a supreme dumbhead.
I wonder why Clever Mangala Samaraweera is supporting this dumbhead?
The others including Ajith Perera, Google Baloon Fernando and Daya Gamage are equally dumb to support Sajith Premadasa.
Hail Gothabhaya, you are the MAN.
Excellent thread by Thuleepan supported by Kota Katu and Kamala.
Of course, Gotabhaya Rajapaksa holds the keys to a NEW ERA for our Nation.
We should forge ahead under his scientific and professional leadership supported by Viyath Maga.
As it was prior to Jan 2015, 90% of the Country’s revenue and expenditure should be in R Family hands.
That’s the way to progress; we have had enough of dreamy VW factories and Sajith Premadasa’s stupid, low quality housing.
What Kota Katu says is correct.
The model villages built by Ranasinghe P are now unlivable, they are environmental eyesores.
We will require many thousand acres of waste dumps to dispose the material from the terrible quality housing built by Premadasa and his son.
