Udaya Gammanpila and the Principal Principle

උදය ගම්මන්පිල ගේ මම වෙනුවෙන් මම මොහොත?
[Udaya's 'All About Myself' moment?]
Udaya Gammanpila’s historic ‘double-cross’ topped all crossover stories last week. Just days after lambasting the President and the Government when his party left the ruling coalition, Western Provincial Council member of the Jathika Hela Urumaya rubbished the positions he himself had previously defended.  All those who crossed party lines pleaded ‘principles’.  Gammanpila spoke the word a tad more sweetly than the less eloquent. What was said was ‘principle’ but some may have heard it as ‘self interest’.
