Obviously you don't read any news besides the news here. The UK has a fixed exit date and strategy for it's Afghan troops. But, that's probably unwanted news to you right. Ignoramus.

Sri Lanka doesn't need a fixed date to move troops out of Sri Lanka.

Please advise them not to parrot what the diaspora feeds them. Why cannot they check independently or through their High Commissioner stationed in Colombo. They should verify before making blanket statements, just to please their voters.

Rankin should have been summoned to the Foreign office the minute he made the remark. These fellows are forgetting we are not under their rule. I hope he gets the message loud and clear and keep shut. He or UK cannot govern Sri Lanka.

Giving Rankin undue prominence gives him a status that he does not deserve. Just ignore him or laugh at it and he will not try his luck again. Now he will do it again and again, and throwing him out will add to his reputation.

The ignorant people are falling for this age old trick, That is why we are so diplomatically bankrupt under this government

This joker Rankin does not realize he is in a glass house.
Try Bair , Bush , Brown & Obma at the international criminal court for terrible crimes against humanity.
This is hipocracy at it's very best !

So you admit indirectly that MR can be handed over to international criminal court when Blair, Bush, Brown and Obama are produced at ICC, right?
