crowd in Hatton
This is a mailing I got from the UNP. There’s also a really good economic analysis on Mahoshada that’s well worth checking out. I have the flu and being feverish does not improve my workflow. Here’s some of the text of the mailing. I’m partisan cause you’d have to be batshit insane to vote in an incompetent tsunami-hora backed by the national socialist JVP. ‘Imagine a truly united Sri Lanka… A Sri Lanka where we can travel freely, from coast to coast, a Sri Lanka where law and order prevails, a Sri Lanka where the dividends of peace flow to all citizens, a Sri Lanka where tsunami aid reaches all those in need…’
Ranil: A man of action with a clear vision. The country needs him back at the helm!
Imagine a truly united Sri Lanka…
A Sri Lanka where we can travel freely, from coast to coast, a Sri Lanka where law and order prevails, a Sri Lanka where the dividends of peace flow to all citizens, a Sri Lanka where tsunami aid reaches all those in need. This is the Sri Lanka that Ranil offers us. Ranil has a clear vision for a prosperous and united Sri Lanka. He is a man of action that can deliver on his promises. His track record is there for all to see â€“ in two short years, he accomplished so much for the country. We need him back for another twelve!
Mahinda, however, has no experience and borrowed vision. He has no imagination and no achievements, so he has allied himself with extremists to win at any cost. He will not be able to step forward shackled to the JVP. Instead, he will simply follow as they lead us towards failed states like Burma and North Korea. He has no vision of his own, so he lets the extremists run wild, barking and baying for blood. They spread racial and religious division because they have no answers to the real issues – the cost of living and peace. They divide because they cannot unite Sri Lanka in prosperity and peace.
For all the Rata Perata talk of being pro-poor, in action SLFP/JVP governments consistently impoverish Sri Lanka. Ranil Wickremesinghe and the UNP, however, have ushered in the greatest growth in Sri Lankan history. Ranilâ€™s future policies promise responsible leadership of the economy producing tangible benefits for all Sri Lankans â€“ the poor, the rich and the often-burdened middle class.
