So, these idiots who are resigning, are they getting prepared to accept portfolios in the GR Government?
Dear Ranil, do not accept the resignations of these cowards, please sack them from the UNP and chase them out of Parliament.
Let them go. They have their retirement benefits. They have earned for three generations. One thing is certain TW will never step down as PM or UNP leader. There can be an general election soon.
Let these stinky farts go, Dear Ranil.
We will not only survive but, Ranil, we will live and help others live too.
