    winnie Tuesday, 07 December 2010 03:26 PM

    very soon he will be a senior minister?

    Calistus Jayatilleke Tuesday, 07 December 2010 04:40 PM

    In other words, the President does not care to listen to advice given by his Purohithas like the old professori. What a shame.

    mmj Tuesday, 07 December 2010 04:50 PM

    Mervin is one to be blame,he should have informed the HE.

    victoria Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:27 AM

    somapala Tuesday, 07 December 2010 07:43 PM

    This Is Call Askeing And Eating, Shame Shame Pappi SHAME,,,,

    YURI Tuesday, 07 December 2010 08:02 PM

    Well, MR was living with complex that he cant go to UK, so he wanted to to prove to his party and fellows, but now No SL politician make a single trip out of Sunthara lanka.

    Dr.Najimudeen Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:10 PM

    Forget about all these things for the moment, If there is no any foul play, why should we be worried about tribunals and inquiries? Can't we face them with truth and brave?

    globetrotter Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:37 PM

    Obvisoully the President does not have a brian to analyse these

    Kalani Raja Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:50 PM

    There is a nice phrase in Sinhala to describe this. "Illang kaama"

    play boy Tuesday, 07 December 2010 11:25 PM

    This video recorded by a army officer.

    play boy Tuesday, 07 December 2010 11:30 PM

    very very correct.

    Kanthi Wednesday, 08 December 2010 05:16 AM

    Exactly, may be GL cannot stomach anymore. So Sachin Vaas is the high minded power behind this move!

    citizen1 Wednesday, 08 December 2010 06:30 AM

    Very appropriate!

    spark Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:39 AM

    Resign, what nonsense...this is not patriotic (thats the only reason and logic this country has to argue over anything).

    TOEJOE Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:00 AM

    egocentric

    CJ Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:05 AM

    It is obvious

    Sicillian Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:08 AM

    Cat jumps out. Now you are in trouble.

    Nandimithra Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:10 AM

    This is only half the story - tell us why then he still went - on whose advice ??

    subba Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:13 AM

    Closing the stable doors after the horse has bolted.

    Thambi Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:17 AM

    This is what I call a Kamikazi Mission Tora! Tora!! Tora!!! Now we shall reap what we Sow

    Jagath Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:23 AM

    This is a very serious lapse on the part of the Minister.
    He should resign immediately on this issue.

    Sinhalaya Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:27 AM

    Then ,it's good lesson for HE to think 100 times before take such decisions.....

    SUMI K Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:32 AM

    Please watch the Channel 4 News video, before you write the comments.

    Ranjith Tuesday, 07 December 2010 08:59 AM

    This visit was a good step to expose tritors and now people becane aware of those who work behind the curtains!.

    Sinhalaya Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:41 AM

    Nicely fabricated vedio done by PRO-LTTE ers. pls remove your lenses....

    Bluff Bluff Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:43 AM

    What was the advice you offered?

    xlngson Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:45 AM

    Deja vu? Bogallogama, where you are?

    ind Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:48 AM

    exactly !!!

    ind Tuesday, 07 December 2010 09:51 AM

    For what ?? Even a school boy know that vedios can be fabricated, exept you !!!!

    spark Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:01 AM

    Whatever comments made, a huge population (whether they are tamils, LTTE Supporters or diaspora is immaterial) is accusing this regime of war crimes. Does MR have real guts to stand-up for an independent probe on this issue and claim all of these accusers wrong or will he keep hiding disgracefully behind the security of the sinhalese population screaming patriotism and foreign plots.

    pbj Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:03 AM

    Dear Prof : If the opposition members are let to make their speeches at the parliament without interruptions , if the journalists are free to write without fear , if making false allegations to the UNDESIRABLE persons are stopped , no other whitewashing to the government is necessary . Thus the world will be with us and Diaspora will be weakened.

    R W Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:03 AM

    u r welcome again!!!!!!!!!!!!

    lankaputha Tuesday, 07 December 2010 10:18 AM

    1st question, was this a private tour or a diplomatic tour?
    2nd question, what was this union... the union that all students are a member of or only 10-12 Sri lankans?
    3rd question, for a single addressing, why a group of 50 + went to UK?
