At a political meeting recently held in a populace town down south of colombo, where many have gone to the middle east for green pastures, a politician aspiring to become a deputy minister had this to say to the much applause of his audience

" When we are in government we see the rupee has its true value against the American dollar. When they are in power they contain the value to the tune of the world bank. Be it known on the 2nd when these American stooges are gone we will see that the value of the rupee to the dollar will go up daily and put more money in your pockets for the hard earned middle east dollars your dear one's are sending"
