Lanka has got a people's premier but not without several anxious
moments. While grudgingly giving Ma-hinder the post, Satellite was
quick to tell the new PM that araliya mandiriya is not for him.
Positive she will four months from now have done away with the
presidency she told Ma-hinder there is little point in him moving into
the araliya abode but that the place should be kept clean for the
Bandas. Apparently the
place is too good for the likes of the Party Kings clan and Ma-hinder
has to eat humble pie and say aye!
despite all the media hype, Kadi is a poor loser. He indulged in a right royal sulk when he learnt that the
premier's post was to go to Ma-hinder.
Feeling blue and dejected Kadi confided he was ready to throw
the towel in. But his
ambitious better half always has the last word and she figured the
foreign minister post for Kadi is better than nothing and convinced
Kadi to stay. No wonder Kadi did not turn the other cheek when Ma-hinder
sidled up for a smooch. Well...
well... all is fair in love and war eh?
the rathu sahodarays are playing poker.
Having convinced the masses that only they represent the will
of the people and can deliver, they are now playing hard to get.
The hot shots in the peramuna have declined to accept
ministerial postings, fielding instead their second eleven.
pray then was all that about - Wee flower shouting himself hoarse only
to now tell all those who crossed their ballots for him that he is not
going to sit in the saddle but only watch from the sidelines? How the
silly blot thinks he can make a difference this way
is indeed food for matter.
As they say what is said on the campaign trail is hardly goose
for the gander but mere politics for the asses ...such is life!
deals in the making...
were the final results concluded before heavy horse trading began.
Politicos from various hues were being lobbied long and hard
and the saffron robe types were not excluded.
In fact they were the hottest offering on the block.
not one to miss a deal, Bookiepala confined as he is to a hospital bed
sent big mama to plead his case.
Having failed with both the blues and the greens, Mama Mileena
cornered the monks convinced the theros would be the saving grace for
her darling putha.
she told the urumaya to back Ma-hinder's appointment as premier so
then at least "mage putha" will have a chance.
But Ma-hinder a little bird whispers is not willing to muddy
his paws and is steering clear of the bookie.
schmuck anyway is not so badly off languishing as he does in a
hospital bed. He even
directed the recent poll at the board that is cricket calling Aroo and
telling him to step aside pledging to look after him if he did not
accept the post of chair of the umpiring kind.
