No more fancy hats
The more I get to know about Sarath Fonseka, the less I like him. I’ve heard the rumors of his vindictiveness and callous behavior towards women, but those are still rumors. What I find weird is his public statements which seem more about hurt ego than national concern. I read the interview in The Sunday Leader and it seems like his biggest issue is the loss of perks. That sucks, but I don’t think that’s a very compelling platform for a national leader.
Even in his letter of resignation it was all about how he got screwed over and marginalized. Only the last few points were of issues that mattered to me, or anyone besides him really. Frederica’s interview was even worse, with him going on about his house and security arrangements. These are important, but not necessarily to anyone else. If he wants to be a national candidate he might want to rise above his personal problems and hurt ego.
If he wants to be a common candidate based on common issues I could support him, but so far he just seems to be demanding uncommon privilege. It’s not even that I don’t support this, I just don’t really care. You don’t have a house, OK, I’m sorry. What would you do about the economy?
