The PTA is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL for Sri Lanka considering the. terrorist. attacks she has had for years and recently the Easter Sunday attack. National Security is much more important than human rights, I have to stress to the British High Commissioner. The PTA should NEVER, Repeat NEVER, be repealed.
Of course, quite expected. Yawn… OK, now let’s move on to real important matters shall we?
Yes you all are a boring lot. Always about politicks. riots terrorism and shortages. Shall we talk something interesting for a change. and be to the point, don’t right a book as you lot do. Don’t you have anything better to do,
You said “don’t right a book…”.
Dear Ranjith, the H2S in the farts left behind by Spanish males and and females in the toilets that you clean, has got into your brain, my dear.
Ranjith the bogus/economic refugee in Spain…. how is the smell in the Barcelona city public toilets these days….got to be better than when you went to your ‘out-house’ which was likely a hole in the ground in Northern SL? Ha, hopefully it was not your brother, or your boy-friend for that matter, who ’em Hindians caught with AK47s and drugs in the Indian Ocean few days ago when the said “LTTE boat captured with weapons and drugs!”
Scummie Ranjith, don’t know about “don’t right a book” but my late father always said “two wrongs don’t make it right”….but I was sad to show he was wrong when our brave SLDF Ranavirus finally went into ‘real action’ and, notwithstanding ‘ahimsa’ ‘karuna’ ‘maithree’ etc.that we all grew up with, gave ’em LTTE momma effers an everlasting ‘whack’ a ‘whack’ that after nearly 30 years of their unbridled horrific terrorism, brought us peace! So Ranjith, yes, I agree with you – one should always abide by “don’t right a book” ! LMSSAO!!!
This MUST BE the FIRST TIME I have heard that matters of National Security are boring !! A slip of the masquerade is showing !! I would like the media in general to consider rejecting pseudonyms such as “Ranjith”. It appears “terrorism” at least in thought is not yet dead in Sri Lanka.!!
