    This is a personal visit to UK. UK government has nothing to do with MR's visit.

    Wikileaks and Channel 4 will do the needful. Crabs dance till the water boils..........

    Saradial Wednesday, 01 December 2010 06:49 AM

    Kingsley you are correct, they may meet in Photoshop.

    Matahari Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:33 PM

    Not necessarily, a President meeting an official. That’s all

    psunil Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:33 PM

    Nice name "Fix Foxy meets MR" Maybe MR leads UK-Afgan, UK-Iran & UK-Iraq "Peace talks"

    Namal Rajapakse Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:37 PM

    Huh! huh! If he is invited, why he has given money to people in London to transport people from London in buses to attend this. GIVING FOOD, DRINK AND TRANSPORT. Why not people from university. I think he must have given some money to somedody in Unversity to organise the place this talk. What a joke. Still he is our president so we respect and protect as presedent but please stop doing jokes. People are not that mad to understand these

    KD Wednesday, 01 December 2010 08:04 PM

    Who is Cameroon?

    KD Wednesday, 01 December 2010 08:12 PM

    Not all people worship old queen like some do.

    Cobra Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:45 PM

    The point is that wherever he goes, and whomever he meets, the talks relate to defense matters as if we are expecting another war. Are we?

    pandula Tuesday, 30 November 2010 01:42 PM

    Is it regarding sequrity of MR in UK and EU

    PWC Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:11 PM

    Yes, and some people comment that MR is shivering infront of UK officials.

    Rohith Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:32 PM

    Save the face. At least meet the butler of Cameroon

    bash Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:34 PM

    Not meeting the Head of state there ???????

    believeit ornot Tuesday, 30 November 2010 02:53 PM

    Liam enjoyed coming to Sri Lanka. He visited many times. I wonder why? He is now in power. He may recruit MR to advise UK on how to wipe out the Taliban.

    Pottuvil putha Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:16 PM

    Looks like ' Tamils for Cameron ' has backfired. What happened to the 'Arrest Warrant' ?

    Bridie Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:21 PM

    Let’s see who gets foxed at the end of the day!!!

    raj Tuesday, 30 November 2010 03:47 PM

    we need some documents on Sri lanka to be released like wikilikies so the world can know what went behind the door.

    Deepal Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:11 PM

    This may to get the security which was not guaranteed by the British Govt. To make the trip semi official.

    Ampare son Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:23 PM

    Be carefull sir.from ltte sympathiers.

    Mr. Carrot Tuesday, 30 November 2010 04:48 PM

    What about meeting the queen, After all MR is a Raja.

    PK Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:01 PM

    Yes you are right. Free and luxurious holiday in SL every year.

    PK Tuesday, 30 November 2010 05:09 PM

    Yes, You are literally right Sunil because MR has experiance in taming the tigers and also destroying them completely.

    Don Tuesday, 30 November 2010 06:49 PM

    Mr Fox, please educate our president how a war hero is treated in the civilized world !

    ANIL Tuesday, 30 November 2010 06:53 PM

    How can you enhance country image ? First you should be honest enough inside our country without been corrupt and without stealing sunami donations.

    Kingsley Tuesday, 30 November 2010 07:22 PM

    This news is just to boost the president.
    He could not get any appointment with either the Prime Minister of Britain or the head of State viz: the Queen.

    mlj Tuesday, 30 November 2010 09:19 PM

    When Wikileaks publishes the misdeeds of China, Iran, etc., the US praises Wikileaks, but when Wikileaks exposes the machinations of the US, suddenly Wikileaks is the villain!

    peeping tom Tuesday, 30 November 2010 10:49 PM

    yet another photo opportunity and a lead story for the kept press.

    Perera Wednesday, 01 December 2010 12:42 AM

    Mr Fox would have given a harsher treatment if SF did the undercover jobs in UK. There is nothing to educate but it will be the legal position in UK

    Silva Wednesday, 01 December 2010 12:47 AM

    Kingsley, the UK Prime Minister is in Zurich involved in the 2018 Foot ball World Cup bid.

    gamini Wednesday, 01 December 2010 01:08 AM

    Unbelievable !! how many negative comments you could read on President's visit to London.

    Saradiel Wednesday, 01 December 2010 01:18 AM


    Tom sam USA Wednesday, 01 December 2010 01:51 AM

    Is his arrest before or after the meeting?
    Hope his cronies give him plenty of kiribath before the meeting.
    The kavun could be taken while in the slamer.
