It’s Provincial Council election time. I saw a few lonely UNP posters and a bunch for Duminda Silva, commonly known for threatening to kill Anarkali and being sued for statutory rape of a 13 year old. Whatever it is, he spends money, and his beefy mug is plastered all over Colombo. Dee has a post about it. Duminda is a repugnant human being who happens to have money. The way he treats women alone is disqualification for public service. And yet he wins. Why? Perhaps because we haven’t offered an alternative. I’m now trying to figure out if/where I’ve registered to vote. I think I’m part of the problem.
