Three Blind Mice in Sri Lankan Politics
Posted on February 22nd, 2015

Prof. Hudson McLean

Maithreepala Sirisena’s (MS) comfort meal of hoppers leading to the overthrow of Mahinda Rajapaksa (MR), was like Termites eating through the woodwork beneath the surface.  That was a Cheap Stunt!

A REAL man with guts, would have told MR, who was his Leader that, “Mr President, Thank you for the invitation to a Feast of Hoppers. However, with respect, may I inform you that I am “Hopping-Off” from your Leadership to stand against you!”

But as  any normal observer would see, MS has no backbone or any decency in character. Period.

Then MS exacerbates his subserviency by donning an Indian Bullet-Proof Waist Coat, holding Narendra Modi with both hands!  It was not a handshake by a President of a Sovereign State. Patronising on his knees!

The question arises, of the Three Blind Mice aka CBK-RW-MS, were they equally stupid or who led the Mission?

Certainly, the “carrot” offered by CBK-RW was tempting enough for MS to bite.  Getting an opportunity to reach the pinnacle of political life in Sri Lanka, which MS could never achieve in his lifetime on his own, was not an Offer-MS-Could refuse.

The next questions to CBK-RW are-;

1: Did they believe that a simple donkey like MS can run the course with a stallion like MR?

2: Did CBK-RW believe that RW could hoodwink the Sri Lankan electorate with getting appointed as the Prime Minister with RW team of UNP Ministers, by forcing the arm of MS?

3:  Did CBK-RW think that the Sinhala voters would jump-up in joy to have a non-Sri Lankan and Tamil as the Governor of Central Bank, and a Tamil as a CJ, appointed by a Dictatorial Power of the Trojan Horse MS?

4:  Did CBK-RW believe that the Sri Lanka voters who voted for MS as a SLFP-UPFA but a Common Candidate, would give the Controlling Harness to the leader of the UNP?

5: Did by default, MS conned or scammed the Sinhala electorate, by handing over the reins to CBK-RW, two bungling ex-leaders, and Tamil sympathisers of Eelam, and USA-EU who supported LTTE Terrorism?

Brings back to memory the lyrics of-;

Three Blind Mice.
Three Blind Mice.
Three Blind Mice.
See how they run!
See how they run!
They all ran after the farmer’s wife,
Who cut off their tails,
Who cut off their tails,
With a carving knife.
Did you ever see such a thing in your life,
As three blind mice.

PS: This time, it will not be the Farmer,s wife who will cut-off their tales, but the Sri Lankan voters, who will decimate all three, at one Parliamentary election.

CBK has no tail to lose except her “Sari Tail”.

Both RW & MS might lose whatever tail they sport!

    Prof,

    Brit elections are due in April this year, same as Lanka !!

    All the Nadagangs are mainly due to that ??

    Sir Ranil Regress (into Colonial era) & Baroness CBK (politically barren) & poor Nikang Sirisena used by Britosaurus Rex & Westward Ho ! groups. After all, Brit Nursery Rhyme ‘Four and Twenty Black Birds baked in a pie …” refers to unwary post colonised masses.

    I like your comment Fran.

  3. cwije Says:

    If you are really the Hudson you say you are, you did not understand how MahindR operated. If MS did not keep it as a secret and also pretend to prevent any suspicion against him, the history would have been very different. MR was desperate to stay in power at any cost or cost of any life!!!!

    Some people try to pull wool over our eyes !

    Prof, there are many, many, blind mice than the 3 you mention !

    The Human Heart is NEVER fooled.

    Dear Prof: I take time to read your articles, because of the thinking that a “Professor” will have some very well thought out presentations to be given to the public for consumption. Sorry to say my expectations are fast fading,because of some of the references you have made to the present President of Sri Lanka. I do not contest at all your dislike or any antagonism showing towards the present President. In my case, I have no “People Worshiping” traits at all excepting, recognizing the people in “Authority” for their value added to the society.

    So coming back to your reference : “The Next Questions to CBK/RW” at number 1. Did they believe…….. that a “SIMPLE DONKEY LIKE MS” ( emphasized by me). Do you think that reference made to the present President of Sri Lanka, speaks well for your academic achievements and more than that give us, the readers who look for something to learn and digest.? I do not think so. There are an appreciable “army” of young and upcoming brains added to the voter base in this country and they are invariably hooked on to the social media through web and other types. That group is not the types of the “old era” who love to hear reference of these types. Quite reversely, they “resist” and “hate” anyone making use off such derogatory reference at public meetings. The ex President Mr. Mahinda Rajapakse too tolerated one such speaker at his meetings and he did not care to mark a “period” for such words and I know he suffered heavily. In fact some of the high ranking party members started attributing Mr. MR’s defeat to that “main speaker”. I heard him shouting “sirisenayo, sirisenoyo, palayan, playan: chuthawelama playan”. That is so derogatory, I do not know how to translate that into English for your understanding.

    In my opinion this not the way to set about “promoting” and “marketing” the ex President Mr Mahinda Rajapakse. In fact those who do that are doing the “greatest damage” and I would consider it an attempt to “bury” him in the future political arena. For you thoughts please.

    NUGEGODA ALLIANCE will not win more than 10 seats.

    We can keep begging MY3 to make MR PM or PM CANDIDATE but MY3 doesn’t trust him.

  7. Geeth Says:

    Lorenzo,
    You are miscalculating the situation. Don’t you see My3 doesn’t have any other options but to trust MR? He doesn’t have that many choices. Actually MR doesn’t have to beg My3 at all. The party membership will drag My3 to do it or else will be removed from the leadership. Ranil knows his days in the position are numbered. That’s may be the reason why he behave infuriated.

    Lorenzo, you will see a lot of nasty things in near future.

  8. ranjit Says:

    Lorenzo don’t underestimate the Nugegoda Man my dear. He will give a run to these UNP/Chandrika/MY3 rats just wait and see. We will fight till the Nugegoda Man takes the driving seat if it takes another 10 years even. You can drink Koththamalli and eat Parippu as long as you like because you too is a rat who crawls and hide to avoid the cat.

    Nugegoda Man will be a strong movement in the future and already these UNP traitors are shivering and barking like stray dogs to scare the puppets in S.L.F.P who are dreaming to eat bigger pies. The whole set up will be upside down in the coming months then Lorenzo you too can go to hell with them.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    Has MR promised to SCRAP 13 amendment?

    NO!

    So how on earth can he be successful??????

  10. SA Kumar Says:

    Did they believe that a simple donkey like MS can run the course with a stallion like MR?
    Prof. Hudson McLean you calling SL President donkey !!! I know even our Nugegoda Man do not like this .

    how is this ???

    Nearly 27,000 acres of private land released

    Almost 50 battalions moved out from North

    February 22, 2015, 10:36 pm

    By Shamindra Ferdinando

    The army has released 26,865 out of 34,561 acres of land held by five security forces commands in the Northern and Eastern Provinces since the conclusion of the war in May 2009 up to Dec. 2013.

    Land has been released in stages with the people living in area covered by Security Forces headquarters, Jaffna being the main beneficiary.

    The releasing of land commenced in late Oct, 2010 in the Jaffna peninsula.

    According to Defence Ministry records, of 33,156 acres held by the Jaffna command, 26,729 acres had been released as at Dec. 2013.

    A senior security official told The Island that security forces commands in Vanni (69 acres), Kilinochchi (632 acres), Mullaitivu (572 acres) and East (132 acres) had held a total of 1,405 acres of land at the end of war, whereas the Jaffna command alone occupied a staggering 33,156 acres.

    Asked whether private land in areas outside the Jaffna command, too, had been released, the official said that as at Dec. 2013, 12 acres of land in Vanni, 71 acres in Kilinochchi, 15 acres in Mullaitivu and 38 acres in East had been released on a staggered basis.

    Army headquarters said troops had given up more land last year in accordance with a plan to gradually release civilian properties.

    A senior official said that the army had been told of the government decision to release 1,000 acres of land currently held by the Jaffna command. As at Dec, 2013, the Jaffna command held 6,427 acres of land.

    The military said that Palaly-Kankesanthurai sector had been gradually expanded over the years to meet the threat posed by the LTTE. In the absence of overland main supply route, five Divisions deployed in the Jaffna peninsula at the height of the war, in addition to the navy, air force and police, relied on sea and air supply lines. All civilian supplies, too, had to be moved by sea, sources said, adding that Jaffna district deployment remained the largest single commitment until the end of the conflict.

    It said with troops gradually giving up private land, there had been significant changes in the deployment pattern of battalions assigned to Jaffna, Vanni, Kilinochchi and Mullaitivu commands. At the conclusion of the war in May 2009, there had been 152 battalions assigned for those commands, the military said, adding that deployment was meant to face a possible low intensity hit and run terror campaign. However, as the situation steadily improved, army headquarters reduced the northern deployment by 48 battalions, with more than half the battalions assigned for Mullaitivu command redeployed.

    The LTTE, too, held substantial land particularly in the Vanni east during the conflict, though no one requested the LTTE to give up such land, the military said.

    I see it as DUMB & DUMBER LANKANS succumbing to Neo-colonisation with Sir Ranil Regress using the Brit ‘Divide & Rule’ principle to rule colonies. Brit & EU chaps are facing General Elections this year (Brit Gen Elections on May 7, 2015, right after Lanka elections). B. Rex looking for subdued and crushed beach heads in SE Asia. Sir RR is the Agency House !

    America, India & Lanka were all colonies of Britosaurus Rex.

  13. Fran Diaz Says:

    The Nugegoda Man is just a symptom of PROTEST about the Disease that is setting into the so called Democratic Socialist State of Sri Lanka. To remove the Disease called Neo-Colonisation & Fascism, get rid of the 13-A. The People of Lanka can do this with the attitude of the N’goda Man. MR can advice – no need to drag him into high politics again! We Lankans have to stand together and get rid of the 13-A which is what is crushing Lanka. The 13-A was imposed under Duress during the JRJ govt. and is therefore Null and Void in any Court of Law. If the Lankans don’t get together and do this now i.e. get rid of the 13-A using it as a battle cry for the Elections in April this year, then you can all write off Lanka as a lost cause.

    Don’t howl and complain later. Now you know which cliff you all are going over ! Stop it. Stop the 13-A ! That the real enemy !

    Enforce the law of the land. Spread the leadership as done on China. Don’t put one person forward to face the international flak.

    NO !

    CUT THE PIG SHIT LORENZO. JUST CUT IT.

  15. Lorenzo Says:

    SW,

    MY3 has won. it is MR who needs to turn tables. So it is MR who should promise to scrap 13 amendment.

    Otherwise NO CHANGE!!!!

  16. Ananda-USA Says:

    NeelaMahaYoda,

    Absolutely and wholeheartedly AGREE WITH YOU that the article entitled “Confused Sinhala Buddhist Leaders” is the “A sad confession of A Sinhala Buddhist who wholeheartedly and passionately supported Sirisena and now disappointed and disillusioned by his performance as the Executive President. ”

    Many WISER Patriots at LankaWeb REPEATEDLY WARNED these GULLIBLE FOOLS not to swallow the Yahapalanaya Falsehoods HOOK, LINE & SINKER.

    They didn’t listen, and now the Patriots of Lanka have a Long March ahead of them to REVERSE that ERROR, and REPAIR the DAMAGE!

    In effect, we Sinhala Buddhists have driven a KNIFE into our own BELLIES again giving credence to the cry “Sinhalaya Modaya, Kavum Kanna Yodaya”!

    We Sinhala Buddhists had SHED that LABEL by the manner in which we had united and rallied as one man to support the War Victories of 2005-2009 and the Economic Policies and Infrastructure Development of 2009 – 2015, but here is that same GULLIBILITY AGAIN raising its UGLY HEAD in our midst!

  17. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !!!

    YES MY3 HAS WON. I DID NOT KNOW TILL YOU JUST TOLD ME, EH !! The issue here is not a win or lose.

    HAS ***MS***PROMISED TO SCRAP THE 13TH AMMENDMENT ??? YES OR NO.???? YES OR NO ???? **IT IS NO**

    SO HOW ON EARTH CAN HE BE SUCCESSFUL, ???? HELL NO.** IF THIS IS YOUR LINE OF THOUGHT, HELL NO. IF HE IS NOT GOING TO SCRAP THE 13TH AMMENDMENT, NO QUESTION, HE IS NOT GOING TO BE SUCCESSFUL. **IT IS YOUR THEORY, AND YOUR THEORY ALONE** DONT TRY TO CIRCUMVENT YOUR MIS-FIRE. your slip is showing. DANNO DANITHI.

  18. Susantha Wijesinghe Says:

    LORENZO !! JUST ONE MORE THING. WHO SAYS THAT IT IS MR WHO HAS TO TURN THE TABLES ? LORENZO SAYS SO.

    YOU KNOW VERY WELL THAT M3 IS NOT CAPABLE OF TURNING “”THAT”” TABLE. HE JUST CANNOT, BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN PUT “”””UNDER THE TABLE”””” and is in a state of hyperthermia. Talk of the 13th, and he shivers. THE WHOLE COUNTRY KNOWS THAT HE WILL NOT TOUCH IT. HE HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO A GREAT SENSE OF FEAR. FEAR. FEAR.

    Cant you remember, you and I and almost all on Lanka Web asked MR to scrap the 13th A ? you know very well that he did not do it. He ignored us all. STRANGE THAT YOU ARE NOT MAKING THAT REQUEST TO MY3. STRANGE INDEED.

  19. Independent Says:

    Susantha,
    As you have always judged lately, MR has been a better leader, a better Sinhala Buddhist than My3. Do you expect My3 to do better than the superior leader ?
