The joke that is Wijedasa and the joker that is Wijedasa
Quite apart from his faux pas (I don’t believe it), or deliberate challenge (I believe it) to the authority of the President to denounce in public his threat to take back Hambantota Port if ever he was in charge, (as if it ever left Sri Lankan sovereignty) for the people of Sri Lanka, putting collective Cabinet Responsibility into the trash heap, I believe he has been a double agent right through his term in office, and for that sin alone he should be guillotined.
Simply put he is a traitor to his Government and has been so since its inauguration and the fact that both the President and the Prime Minister tolerated his prevarication and procrastination for so long is simply astounding, as he has NOT achieved anything in his tenure.
His endearing engagement with the President, evidenced by to bringing his son into the Ministry of Defence as a Media Secretary was part of this game to report back, all manner of corruption taking place, inform his masters like Gota of any shenanigan that can be used in the future against the very same donkeys in the Yahapalana Government, shows that his paws have reached all corners. Giving him the Buddhasasana Ministry also was a calculated gamble that spectacularly failed.
Is it due to his knowledge of many secrets usually jealously guarded by lawyers with more merit who treasure the Attorney Client Privilege, and which those very same clients now realize his blatent disregard of, to project his personage, that he has not already been sacked?
The Government (the President and PM) is placing too much weight on his influence on imbecilic leaders of the Clergy who shout loudest and the Media print this shout, but who have NO weight in reality with the Clergy who matter most. He is all loud, like a Goose once it is chased for dear life, but which no one in the end will care about, once snuffed out.
The INDECISION of the PM and the President is PAINFUL to the public to watch, when this man is running rings round the Government and even the UNP MP’s who have been screaming for blood don’t seem to be able to have the power to effect this change and move on.
In the interests of Good Governance and to show the people, the ability of this administration to Govern effectively, this is simply an appeal to the President to fire this man without having to give any reason, and NOT worry about the beans he has threatened to spill, as his ouster is more important than any harm his UNTRUSTWORTHY mouth can spew. It will only be with a vengeance and blood lust and so will be without merit. (no pun intended in the Buddhist context)
What is important is that the people of this Country are governed by people who have the Public's best interests at heart, and if that is the ultimate criteria, Mr President you can do it without being concerned about the WHAT Ifs!
