A Chinese remedy

Madame Savannah the Vast’s Moment of Truth
Madame Savannah the Vast, the former Queen Bandita of Aanamalu Republic of Lanka in a rare moment of lucidity, and even a rare moment of honest genuflection says that there is a genuine threat to her pet of the month Sirisena’s American funded ‘Monapalanaya?’ Program from vermin like her.
President Sirisena says that all SLFP/UPFA MPs who oppose 20th amendment to the Constitution will be required to attend a 10-hour uninterrupted seminar on constitutional law, macroeconomics and power napping by Professor G.L.Peiris and Dr.Harsha de Silva. “That’ll teach them.

Not all ministers are happy. Some have been heard to complain that 100 days were not enough: ‘Goodness gracious, is 100 days enough for anyone to come up with a plan where one doesn’t get caught? This is not like issuing bonds and collecting a commission!’
A SriLankan giveaway
SriLankan Airlines will now provide a sleeping companion of choice to their pilots on all flights of more than four- hour duration.

However, when a pilot takes a nap during a flight while at controls, he will not get paid for the duration of the nap.
Helping the economy
The Acting President says he will forego his presidential salary as a way to ease the burden on the country’s treasury created by having too many thieves in one cCabinet. “I can always ask Bondi if I am short of cash; or the US ambassador,” the Great Actor Cum Imposter said.
The owners of the two media organizations funded by Divi Naguma funds say that they used the funds for Reconstruction and Development of their newspapers. ‘We are flooded by debt. Needed the funds badly and Uncle Bassa bailed us out. What’s wrong with that?’ the two Ruperts of Sri Lanka media asked.

Siripala, the Leader of Opposition who is also part of the governing coalition and member of the President’s own party says that his ability to function in his usual incompetent and ineffectual manner has been greatly compromised by the arrest of MP Basil Rajapaksa, Johnston Fernando and Sajin Vaas Gunawardena. ‘My ranks are getting depleted day by day. How can I function?’ he asked the single journalist who attended his press conference.Sudat Pasqual is the Incompetent Authority on Irrelevant Implausible News, Kekirilanthaya
