    Amazing, the number of educated morons in this country who have not yet realized the true state of affairs in Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka gained more than it lost during this visit,... Britain is doomed got two votes for the World cup footy bid, nobody listens to them now

    If he is a honest person there should be a warmer welcome by the IC for his first visit after war. He knows the world know what is he and what is honest?

    Kodage Friday, 03 December 2010 06:02 PM

    Now China, Iran, Zinbabwe, North Korea, or Libiya must extend an invitation and enterain him, to counter the outcome of ths UK visit.

    EXPENDITURE MUST BE DECLARED BY THE GVT. FOR THE LEASURE TRIP. PEOPLE SHOULD QUESTION THIS TYPE OF UNNECESSARY WASTE OF PUBLIC FUNDS

    Percy Mandawala Friday, 03 December 2010 05:55 AM

    Yes all dependents must go and welcome him after a very successful tour in UK.

    Kithul Ramba Friday, 03 December 2010 07:43 PM

    He managed to escape the terrorists!

    m rifai nazim Friday, 03 December 2010 06:11 AM

    Why rousing welcome? It is true he is the Best President and most fitted President. But we expect the president should not t tolerate ministers for all this type of dramas.

    TDDC Friday, 03 December 2010 06:13 AM

    I hope he well be a more matured leader after the tour in UK, with the experience he gained. I think the money spent is for a very worthy course.

    Oxford_Dropout Friday, 03 December 2010 06:21 AM

    We will be at the Airport to receive you sir.
    What a succesful tour you had.
    Great achievement.
    You have brought glory to your land.

    Very True. Some traitors were waiting till he was detained.

    cracko Friday, 03 December 2010 07:58 AM

    What has he done in this trip to receive a ROUSING welcome? Is the Govt transporting all these people using state/peoples' money?

    raymond Saturday, 04 December 2010 02:58 AM

    Sangeetha Friday, 03 December 2010 08:40 AM

    Pride goes before a fall and a haughty spirit before destruction.

    Sorry you were not able to get an Honorary Doctorate from Oxford, so that you will be able to replace the other 'Doctor' from the Government.

    Apsara Saturday, 04 December 2010 04:50 AM

    Wish you a safe return home Mr. President. Now someone has to review our agreement with the PR firm Bell Pottinger who organised this trip!!!
