    Let's hope UK will reduce the Afgan based UK camps too?
    Dear G.L please raise this behalf of us

    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.

    true, but our fellows only watch state media

    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.

    Mr Minister, fogive this person Rankin, he thinks that still British governs srilanka and he is Governor Fredrick North.

    saman Tuesday, 29 May 2012 04:17 AM

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

    Patta Pal Monday, 28 May 2012 03:07 PM

    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

    Hussain do you really think UK, USA, UNHCR .. all of them simply do and act on what the Tamil diaspora want? Comeon mate....talk sensibly.

    RAJU Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:18 AM

    YOU CANT HIDE THE TRUTH.

    Anu Tuesday, 29 May 2012 10:47 AM

    Dont rattle him too much. Invitation to Buckhigham Palace may be withdrawn. Ha ha

    Gamini Monday, 28 May 2012 05:06 PM

    Our brave professor with a cane in his hand must be shouting at Ranking .. and Ranking trying to hide behind a desk... (just an imagination for a change)

    swan Tuesday, 29 May 2012 05:24 AM

    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 !

    BlindSide Monday, 28 May 2012 05:29 PM

    You have to remember that we have a big bowl for begging and getting bigger.

    Tamara Kunanayagam Monday, 28 May 2012 05:41 PM

    All i can say is, SL get ready for the UN periodic review. US and the rest of the WEST is getting ready to wip it again.

    Saskia Tuesday, 29 May 2012 12:14 PM

    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?

    Rohan Monday, 28 May 2012 11:27 AM

    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.
