Sri Lanka's government has accused British Prime Minister David Cameron of breaching protocol on his visit to the country, during which he raised concerns over alleged human rights abuses against Tamils, the BBC reported today

A senior source told the BBC that the prime minister had "brushed aside" an official and had failed to acknowledge a dance reception.

They added that they "expected better".

A Sri Lankan government source said Mr Cameron had "breached protocol several times".

It was alleged that he had "brushed aside" the main Tamil local official in visiting a displacement camp, when he should have been escorted by him.

The source added that Mr Cameron had "declined to sign the national visitors' book" or "acknowledge a dance reception on arrival as he should have done".

They said: "We thought Britain would do better. They're the ones who taught us protocol."

    As if they follow the protocol.

    Perhaps, it is time to update the protocol which was taught by uk. They have updated it many times over the years but we still keep the 1948 version like their railway track without updating it

    The Sun has now set over the British Empire. But they still think
    we are under their rule.

    All talk was putting the head on the chopping board Cameron. No one with the right frame of mind will do such a degrading thing. Speak on behalf of a terrorist organisation. All lies and TV and film show to misled the World and leaders are caught out not knowing the objective of the Tamil Tigers to discredit the Sri Lanka and its people. And it has to be Cameron who thinks that he has spoken for the ltte,not the local Tamils.What a Joker,get your facts straight,otherwise you have to bite the bullet.
