S. Senanayake at the Independence Square, Colombo. - (Pic by Mangala Weerasekera)
PIC RIGHT: Daminda Harsha Perera/ Daily Mirror 23-3-2002 Opposition leader Mahinda Rajapakse was invited as a special guest to give a speech at the D.S. Senanayake 50th death anniversary commemoration at the Independence Square yesterday. But he rushed in late at the tail end of the ceremony and looked embarrassed for some time. But it was quickly overcome and Mr. Rajapakse is seen enjoying a joke with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe with a towering portrait of the father of the nation in the background.

It is fairly obvious that the tide has turned for the good/bad (delete as appropriate) of the country/countries! We understand that Tintin...sorry..Ranil did not employ any rough arm tactics unlike Bob Mugabe in winning the local "bodies"!
Our sympathies are with the moustachio-ed, opposition-what's-his-name-chap. Our only advice to this guy is "Buy a razor!"
You look like an oily South American Drugs Baron! Girls like clean shaven guys like Tintin.....(Will that do Ranil, Sir?)...


You are fired! - Ed

Historical note (for the younger generation): D.S. Senanayake, the so-called "Father of the Nation", fell off a horse on Galle Face Green and died...
It is dangerous to ride high horses on the moral high ground...
