The press has recently carried pictures of government politicians fawning over Australian Casino tycoon, James Packer, who was here last week. They went out of their way to make him feel important for obvious reasons.
Pictures showed a happy Packer flashing a thousand watt smile. However, UNP MP Dr. Harsha de Silva has claimed that the Opposition was able to make him return empty-handed by blocking a government move to rush legislation through Parliament to grant his casino to be set up here a tax holiday.
