  HAVE THE SRI LANKAN PARLIAMENTARIANS LOST THEIR SENSE OF CIVILITY, DECORUM AND DECENCY?

Prof. Hudson McLean

Just a passing question-: Have the Parliamentarians in Sri Lanka lost their sense of civility, decorum and decency?

Unlike the good old days when the Daily News published the previous weeks happenings, today in this day and age of the Internet, news hits several billion readers in seconds, across the world.

From what we gather, the dignity of the Parliament in Sri Lanka has been reduced to a pulp by those who insult the fellow Members in a most undignified and a childish manner.

The electorate must be made to take note of the conduct of some of the less educated, third class sub humans who have been elected to perform one of the most distinguished and important responsibilities to humanity. I chose to call them sub-humans since even wild animals tend to behave in a more respectful and responsible manner to their environments.

In a democratic institution such as the Parliament, the members are expected to behave in a responsible and a dignified manner, without resorting to violence and abuse. This is a display of utter ignorance.

Those members who accuse Her Excellency the President without foundation are only spitting looking upwards at the sky, only to display their sense of incredible stupidity.

Dear readers, please do correct me if I am wrong; I believe that a member of Parliament or any other person enjoys the personal freedom to carry a recording instrument with a view to recording a conversation. Perhaps it may be politically correct and civil, to obtain prior consent of the other parties present, to record the conversation.

For the sake of Presidential dignity, I might suggest that Her Excellency choses to ignore such petty childish accusations.
