    Get lost. Why is your government attending in the first place. I do hope you Premier will be just one time.

    Nodrog Tuesday, 16 July 2013 01:57 PM

    Yes, allow journalist but not that moron Jon Snow who is only a mouth-piece who speaks only for money

    PK Tuesday, 16 July 2013 02:22 PM

    Grant access to all Toms and Jerrys in to our country..! Is it required?

    How can majority of Sri Lankans tolerate the presence of journalist like Callum Macree when he had accepted a payment of Sterling Pounds 33,768/- from Tamil diaspora for giving propaganda work for that hypocritical film "No Fire Zone"? It is a public secret. Besides this, he dreams to prosecute Sri Lanka's President and Defence Secretary for eradicating terrorism from Sri Lanka. Therefore, we strongly protest such unscrupulous journalist's presence in Sri Lanka.

    Well CH4 should be considered "Persona Non-Grata"- So that CH4 is NOT Welcome! That should not surprise them!

    Porky Pig Tuesday, 16 July 2013 04:02 PM

    I hope this happens to teach the morons who are attending this conference.

    Its a good opportunity for Sri lanka to give the British a bit of their own medicine, All SL will have to say is
    "Each individual who apply for a visa will be treated on its merit, Individual cases will not be discussed in public. etc etc. the usual british jargon.......
    And of course one can appeal a decision and it will be about 2 years before the outcome is known, probably in time for the next commonwealth.

    Mr. Deshapriya Election Commissioner please order the british govt to shut their mouth. Deshapriya' is the greatest.Ypu will soon become Desha Apriya.
