Justice for politicians at the expense of public

Saturday, February 16th, 2019

Ajit Randeniya The Supreme Court ruling on President Sirisena’s bold executive attempt to offer the public an opportunity for a fresh beginning is one of the most remarkable judicial intervention in recent history of the country. Following the decision, the ebullient mood of the public that accompanied the October 26 decision was quickly changed in […]

Sirisena gives Sobhita Thera a Dhamma lesson

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Ajit Randeniya The country’s new maladministration typified by its farcical cabinet and other appointments has already become the butt of many a joke about its cynical deception of the public. Grand sounding slogans about Yahapalanaya and reconciliation together with clearly disingenuous promises about jobs creation and future prosperity have become meaningless drivel save their comical […]

President Sirisena only has poison to serve the nation

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Ajit Randeniya The protagonists of the Yahapalana deception appear like a bunch of bungling comedy actors except for the danger they pose to the future of Sri Lanka. If the breathtakingly doltish display of the care-taker education minister (Wilbewa toiya”) Akila Viraj Kariyawasam to bring Napoleon Bonaparte – who had been dead for nearly 100 […]

The Rajapaksa comeback creates many ‘cats on hot bricks’

Monday, July 6th, 2015

Ajit Randeniya The inevitable announcement by the UPFA that the former President Mahinda Rajapakse will be nominated for the August 17 elections has created the anticipated hysterical reaction from marginal political players who took part in the January 8 conspiracy plotted by the venomous Chandrika Kumaratunga. The Rajapakse success seems to have created many ‘cats […]

2014 Electoral Roll was rigged

Wednesday, July 1st, 2015

Ajit Randeniya Contrary to the lies and boasts of the gang of thieves behind, the January 8 event was far from a democratic victory they secured at the ballot box, ‘fair and square’; A Sirisena victory never seemed likely during the period leading up to January 8, and Sirisena or Ranil Wickremesinghe themselves never seemed […]

Rajitha Senaratne is building his own dynasty of foreign agents

Monday, June 22nd, 2015

Ajit Randeniya One of the key conspirators behind the Yahapalana conspiracy of 2015, Rajitha Senaratne fully deserves MP Dilan Perera’s description of him as a political pimp”. The description followed the lie he uttered after the last Cabinet meeting about President Sirisena’s view of a Mahinda Rajapakse come back. It is clearly an apt description […]

An end to Yahapalana curse is direly needed

Thursday, June 11th, 2015

By Ajit Randeniya Five months of corruption-ridden maladministration under the Yahapalanaya deception has been nothing short of a national disaster. The country is floating without effective national leadership and there are no resources to meet regular government financial commitments. Work in key development projects started by the previous government has been stalled on account of […]

Interim government is sleep-walking back to colonial era

Monday, January 19th, 2015

Ajit Randeniya The apparent fascination of the new interim government of Sri Lanka with colonialism is beginning to surface in key areas.

Spies Like Us! The Noel Mudalige disappearance debacle

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya The 1985 movie “ƒ”¹…”Spies Like Us’ that starred Chevy Chase and Dan Aykroyd had an “ƒ”¹…”interesting’ story line as far as spoof movies go.

There is no freedom of expression in the West: Somebody Must Say It

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya The so-called “ƒ”¹…”freedom of expression’ is nominally, one of the essential components of the caboodle of bogus value system of the American versions of democracy, human rights, law and order and other frauds inflicted on the developing world by America and the NGO movement. Attempts are made usually to set the high water […]

The Geneva resolution doesn’t matter

Sunday, March 25th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya The clamour about the UNHCR resolution on Sri Lanka and the gloating of US and British paid local agents should not be allowed to drown an accurate national understanding of the reality that this resolution means nothing to Sri Lanka: advice on human rights protection from those with as much credibility on the […]

Sunday, March 18th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The “ƒ”¹…”Panjwai massacre’ in Afghanistan last week by an American Army Staff Sergeant named Robert Bales, and possibly others, came in the wake of a string of war crimes committed by US troops there, including the burning of Qurans, Marines urinating on dead Afghan bodies, and murder of civilians by soldiers formed in […]

The drumbeats for war against Iran is a crime against world peace

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya A columnist for the progressive Israeli newspaper Haaretz, Israel Harel recently made the point that the instinctive and uncontrolled “ƒ”¹…”hatred’ of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu amongst Israelis prevents a rational discussion of a possible military attack on Iran. The primary observation that Netanyahu is a “ƒ”¹…”hated’ figure in Israel, made albeit in the […]

UNHRC resolution is a diversion: Blake’s real target is the rupee and the economy!

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya Those who ought to be keeping an eye on that shifty neocon agent Robert O Blake’s conspiracies for Sri Lanka need to be awake to the possibility that the ridiculous move through his off-sider Maria Otera at the UNHCR and the rapid slide of the Sri Lankan rupee at the same time may […]

Darwinism can only be believed through blind faith

Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ A writer named R. Chandrasoma has written to the Lankaweb about my postings on Richard Dawkins and Darwinism, describing the matter contained as a diatribe: to describe my criticism of Darwin and his so-called “ƒ”¹…”theory’, and Dawkins’ wild interpretation of it, as ‘diatribe’ is based on cliched use of the word without a […]

Neocons, Al-Qaida and Hamas are united in building the next nuclear bomb

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The current US, British and French led attack on the Syrian President Bashir Al-Assad and his government, carried out with financial help from the corrupt sheikdoms of Saudi Arabia and Qatar is in fact a part of the psychological warfare (PSYWAR) aimed at Iran, the next military target of the neocon-captured American foreign […]

Richard Dawkins is lost for words on radio!

Tuesday, February 21st, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The item on Richard Dawkins posted by this writer on Lankaweb (Monday, 20 February) appears to have generated some interest and discussion within the Lankaweb fraternity and outside. ƒ”š‚ While choosing to ignore some of the anticipated vitriolic attacks from those who think we all evolved from slime (without having had access to all […]

Richard Dawkins has made the Galle Literary Festival look even more of a farce!

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The Galle Literary Festival (GLF) seems peculiar in terms of literary festivals elsewhere in that the organisers do not seem to have pretensions that it offers little more than a relaxing holiday to the boho-chic set. What is on offer is interestingly named cocktails in resort hotels in and outside the colonial Fort […]

Sri Lanka needs to stand up against external meddling in the Maldives

Sunday, February 12th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The Sri Lankan Ministry of Foreign Affairs has rightly warned against external meddling or intervention in the Maldives following the peaceful transition of government that took place on 7 February. ƒ”š‚ Such a warning was warranted in view of the flurry of activity that began within the first 24 hours of change of government […]

The failure of the ‘three card trick on Syria’ at the UN Security Council is good news for the developing world

Sunday, February 5th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya The vetoeing by Russia and China of a draft United Nations Security Council (UNSC) resolution that sought regime change in Syria marks a significant turning point in the voting patterns of these two permanent member nations at the UNSC.

Is Sri Lanka’s hard won sovereignty being surrendered to the IMF and other money lenders?

Monday, January 30th, 2012

Ajit Randeniya A couple of recent reports from Sri Lanka give rise to concerns that the treasured national sovereignty gained in May 2009 by eliminating the menaces of terrorism and war is being squandered through the careless or incompetent actions of certain members of cabinet and top bureaucrats. The first of such reports refers to […]

Is it really a new dawn or false hope?

Sunday, October 24th, 2010

Ajit Randeniya The Sri Lankan government and the politicians have justifiably been upbeat about the social and economic future of the country following the end of the war.

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ Another episode of the farce known as the Commonwealth Games started on October 3 in Delhi, following high drama created by the western corporate media.

News of David Miliband’s political death is greatly exaggerated!

Monday, October 4th, 2010

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The news that the former British foreign minister David Miliband has quit “ƒ”¹…”frontline politics’, signifying his “ƒ”¹…”political death’ may be a great exaggeration, along the lines of reports of Mark Twain’s real death! ƒ”š‚ Familiarity with the Zionist maneuverings of the two so-called “ƒ”¹…”western democracies’, dare I say of the “ƒ”¹…”first’ world, suggests that […]

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ Everyone associated with the Sri Lankan government, its financial institutions and the “ƒ”¹…”big end of town’ in Colombo has been crowing over the last few days about the “ƒ”¹…”impressive growth’ the economy seems to have recorded in the second quarter of 2010, with the additional boast that this is the highest ever recorded […]

Our democracy is alive and well; you can shut up, Thanks

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Ajit Randeniya ƒ”š‚ The hue and cry over the alleged “ƒ”¹…”death of democracy’ in Sri Lanka following the parliament’s overwhelming (167-18) approval of the 18th Amendment to the Sri Lankan Constitution almost resembles that followed President Rajapakse’s rejection of the “ƒ”¹…”trick’ proposal (too clever by half!) of Robert Blake, Eric Solheim, David Miliband and Bernard Kouchner […]

Here is Israeli human rights for you!

Friday, September 10th, 2010

Ajit Randeniya The world is bombarded almost on a daily basis by Zionist owned or controlled news agencies (Reuters, AFP, AP, BBC, Aljazeera and the rest of them) as to what a beacon of democracy and protector of civil rights the illegitimate entity of Israel represents in the Middle East.
