    Good to see some fighting spirit emerging from the old left. All patriotic forces must unit. Not an inch of whole of Colombo port should be given to anybody. It is through port our enemies always entered. Colombo being the nerve center of economic activity should be under the control of the majority who safeguarded it for more than two millennia.

    Also the estates of central hills also should not be bartered under any circumstances.

    As I see it what is going to happen is the repossession of our lands by the colonials by various means, including the use of Indians. Perhaps the resources and economic clout of europeons had on Asian countries is depleting and they want to take back the jewel, India, by balkanizing it. Foolish Indians do not see it. They have even started to do some arm twisting as well. Perhaps the ban on travel from some ME airports is one such thing. I see the demonstration against Ali Sabri by some NGOs at Kalutara is also a sign of that attempt. But, one good thing will happen: our guys will have to find a new place to hide the loot and in that process the ME will lose influence they now have on our politicos.

    Sorry for the typos in the above.

    One more thing:
    If the the government entities cannot maintain the tea estates due to high labour cost, let them revert back to forests as the clean water that will come out will be more valuable than the tea that we export. If that is also not possible then these lands should be given to the landless peasants or their original owners.


    Wimal need to maintain cabinet solidarity. He cannot speak out of turn in public on contentious issues. He behaved in this manner in regard to 20A for dual citizenship. By contrast Dinesh Gunawardene, who certainly a strong nationalist minded politician is conducting his affairs in a professional manner.

    Wimal is trying to become a hero, with Athuraliya Rathna and all other bankrupt politicians. He need to remember ALL HEROS ARE DEAD.

    Please fall in line or leave the government respectfully, before the gate is shown very soon.
