In a Nutshell

   

Desperate signs

Dawn Gamman-pilla of JHU fame is a man possessed these days. Having pitted himself against the heavyweights of the ruling clan, he sure knows that victory does not come easy. The man who has been shouting himself hoarse about clean and green politics has now put up cutouts and banners in every nook and corner but that's not all. Shame on this old boy, he has even put up his cutout at his alma mater, the school named after the Father of our Nation. Desperation sure shows!

Ruling militancy

Poor TC Raja of the blue camp was in for a rude shock when his mater was threatened at gunpoint that if the son were to continue his political sojourn, life would take a sour turn. The khaki types have owned up that they took off the cutouts outside his mother's abode and guess with whose assistance, the cadres of the Eee Pee Dee Pee. But mum's the word as to who showed the poor lady a gun. In this isle, there is space only for terrorists in politicians' garb and not others, poor Raja was heard lamenting. Sob sob!

Abducting supporters

The culture of abductions and extortions is sure not a thing of the past, and very much the political practice of the ruling types. Victims are not necessarily those of Tamil origin as often is the case, but supporters of no lesser person than the Petroleum boss the Fuzzy one.

Fuzzy's sin was his zealous campaign to ensure his son's victory come April 25 that had upset some Colombo Central Es El Ef Pee ruffian types. So gangsters forcibly took away  two dozens of Fuzzy supporters and forced them to paste some posters of a rival candidate. Talk about muscle flexing and strong-arm tactics, government style, ah?!

Embarrassed man

The secretary who is general for the Es El Ef Pee, the man named after kindness itself is a thoroughly embarrassed man these days. With escalating intra party rivalry, the recent doings of Colombo contestants added a blush of shame to poor Siri's square face and prompted him to say, "good grief, shame shame, to think this is the party founded by one of the most peaceful politicians ever known." Well-said boy well said!

Companions on a journey

Ra-kneel, the leader of the opposing team is having a bit of a breather, now that the rebellious groups have momentarily quietened down. Throwing a gauntlet at the Prez, Ra-kneel was recently heard to say that if he sinned by talking peace, that too with the covert and overt blessings of many in the ruling party at present, he won't go to jail alone. "Then send them all with me, if I am suspect so are they," he was heard saying, a finger firmly pointed at Gee El and Mee-linda in the government front rows.
