This is so stupid, pointless and childish. This has been now going on for 40-years and we have only been Independent for 70.

But, here is the IRONY.

Sri Lanka is still a third-world country and you expect histrionics from the likes of it. But, compared to Donald Trump, and the totally mockery he is making of the U.S. Presidency, this does not look that bad. If anything it is still MORE civil and constrained compared to the carryings on of Trump.

So, I no longer can tell my dear compatriots — and in many cases contemporaries — to grow-up and act us adults.

I live in a country run by a buffoon with a mental age of a 9-year old!

This tutorial, by the ‘mothership’, so to speak, will help.
