    David Cameroon knows very well about the rights violations and genocide against Tamils in SL. He will not swallow what Mahinda has conveyed.

    England's new government have more important things to concern them at present than worry about some little island in the Indian Ocean that runs to the IMF to rescue their fiscal problems.

    Why is MR saying all this in what should just be a congratulatory message to the new UK/ PM. Why discuss S/L policy and MR's election victory, These are not relevant to message at all.

    'eagerly'

    Good foreign relationships is about giving and taking and mutual respect

    Our politicians take foreign money with open arms then spit in their face talking about "international conspiracies"

    Only a matter of time before we kill the "golden goose"

    Friday, 14 May 2010 04:58 AM

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:26 AM

    This time this is a conservative and a liberal government. We expect them to play as gentlemen not as labourers.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 03:12 AM

    You people are eagaly waiting for that. Everything's politics to you.

    Friday, 14 May 2010 02:43 AM

    Immediately begin the reconciliation process between the Majority and Minority communities, and show the world what the President of Sri Lanka could do to heal the wounds. Just talking won't solve the problems .
