someone wants off this damnable float
I think Sri Lanka faces a George Bush kinda choice. Do we elect the likable dumbass with evil friends or the intelligent douchebag? I’d bet on the dumbass any day of the week, but it seems like the Bandaranaikes seem to have an aversion to anyone else fucking up the country. CBK slapped Mahinda over his JVP/Satan deal and now Anura has said “I really don’t care about the outcome of the election now, since the party’s long upheld principles have been betrayed. Our party’s candidate has joined hands with extremist forces and understandably I and my sister strongly feel major damage has been done to the party by his actions. (BBC)” Heehee, Ranil can’t run a campaign, but maybe the Bandaranaikes can sink the moustache with a red noose around his neck.
I think Mahinda is a cute poster boy and I would buy soap from him, but I wouldn’t put him in charge of anything. Electing him would send Sri Lanka directly backwards into war and economic stagnation, if the MOU with the JVP is any indication. He would basically scrap the peace process and economic reforms. So we get an unwinnable terrorist war and state corruption and inefficiency. And the people will eat photo ops. I would actually consider going back to Canada after a while, just cause it’ll be hard to get anything done. At the least I’ll have to get my ration card and National ID ready as inflation and war turn my money and sanity to mush.
Looking at Ranil posters makes me cringe but he actually brought peace and economic momentum, which is good enough to let me get about my daily life. I just want
the World Bank to colonize us and oppress poor people to live in relative peace and prosperity. I don’t want war and I don’t want inflation making me poorer every day. But then, Mahinda is so pretty…
