It’s great to have an opposition rally and all, but can’t we do something that doesn’t fuck up traffic? Like maybe get 5,000 people to stay home for the day, or go to Thoppigala or something. Eh? If you’re going to stand around and mess up traffic could you at least wash my car or something. Topless ladies? Something? The coming UNP rally at least isn’t funded by my tax rupees, but I still don’t relish traffic jams. I guess it’s a Sri Lankan thing. The culture her is all about conferences, rallies, ceremonies, openings and not doing much of anything. We certainly have a lot of professional associations and awards for a nation that doesn’t actually accomplish much. What I’m thinking is, if we’re going to have a rally we should do something productive, like blockade Parliament so the buggers can’t get anywhere. Or prevent Mahinda from shutting down Thurstan Road at 6 cause he wants to visit his old school. If any of these faux-VIPs want to travel there should be a flash mob blocking their way because they’re definitely less important than the working people of this country. Just saying.
