  1. As a member of the general public with voting rights, I and maybe millions of voters here, are sick and tired of these antics of the latest 2-legged animals zoo at our so-called parliament. Foreign DPLs are watching the live proceedings at the parliament and must be remembering the hit song “Who Let The Dogs Out?”.
    I think it is good if we can divert some of the foreign tourists visiting Sri Lanka to do a city tour of the parliament too to see these 2-legged animals! Maybe we can charge an entrance fee from these foreign tourists visiting the parliament to see these newest 2-legged animals and credit such collections towards a fund appropriately named THE PRESIDENT’S FUND TO REHABILITATE THE WILD AND LUNATIC ANIMALS IN PARLIAMENT LED BY MAITHRI AND MAHINDA.
    Aiyo Sirisena, what has happened to our country??
