Off with their heads! Members of the People’s Alliance United Trade Union Association yesterday paraded effigies of President Chandrika Kumaratunga’s one-time buddies, ex-ministers G.L. Peiris and S.B. Dissanayake, around Town Hall before setting them alight complete with a gloves, blazers, shirts ties and trousers. Passers-by watched with some irony as the images of these men, one of whom had often strutted around the same roundabout as a proud frontliner at similar PA events in the past, were reduced to ashes amid the chanting of uncomplimentary slogans.

That was the original caption.
This must be a bad time for effigies. There are a lot of George Bushes being reduced to ashes. Anyone with a 25 gram intelligence would work out that this is a good time to be in the effigy construction business or flag manufacturing business.
But seriously folks, we at SCN think that the long suffering populace of SL have decided that it was about time that they had a REAL puppet government.. Call us back when you need us..
