    Not fair ! we are island people with seafaring in our blood and we should have the freedom to take a sea voyage when we feel like it may it be to Australia, Canada or to Europe or any other 'developed' country. You cant blame us for not heading for close by (20 miles) India where our relations are because we are looking for new relationships not old ones.
