    Mate British people love our country. They should be united and reject both Conservatives and Labour as the 2 parties are controlled by the Tamil Diaspora.

    Why do you blame Sri Lanka for something done by an idiot. Don't love the politicians. BUT LOVE YOUR MOTHERLAND

    Hazards faced by tourists: molestation, rapes, murders and now trap guns. Still we are aiming at doubling the tourist arrivals.
