    We can send a team to promote SL tea to the Libyan rebels.

    Never knew that Libya was the highest purchaser of Sri Lankan Tea. Minister - may be it's time you get to the good books of the western block to export to the real tea drinkers.

    The duty of a Minister is not to cry out and tell the nation of problems, but to avert them and find solutions!

    "Tea and Sympathy" to the dictator-friend of the King, probably to "curry" favour. Even if eveil Gaddafi falls, there will be some government in Libya and instead of mourning the loss of evil friends, the ministers should learn how to do marketing to whoever is in charge. Also, as Jodie says, we need the western block market as well and should not be confined only to evil, dictatorial regimes.

    OMG!! after a period of long silence. May be due to lack of freedom and constant monitoring?

    The answer is simple we need to source for new markets else where Libya is not the only tea drinking nation,
