    As the leader of the opposition he should have placed his signature demanding the no confidence motion at the top of the list. All these are boru shows and are happening with full agreement with escape routes for the major players on both sides.
    Everybody wants to be on the safe side.
    The Buddhist clergy will never allow an outside military force to establish through a democratic process. That is the reason the US ambassador was talking to mahanayakas today. Perhaps Ven. Galaboda Aththe was released to ensure that.
