Exactly - This is the freedom UK citizens enjoy. This will never happen in SL because of the security vehicles/guards those travel with. But imagine, if this happens here, people in the whole vicinity will be in the jail. Remember jeering the Minister - who jeered Ministers whilst at J'pura.

This royal family and britains have killed millions of people in our country, now UK you get ready to pay for that.

Learn security techniques from Sri Lanka, where even a low profile provincial Minister is having many security personnel to guard him Lanka can teach Scotland Yard.

Our pandits will say this is due to bad exampel given JVP in SL.

"This protest was by university students against increase in fees." Ha Ha! Education is free in Sri Lanka but students protests.
Ask Sri Lankans to pay for the education.

are we srilankans such ignorant or idiots? The demonstration in UK is due to to the increase of tuition fees by around 300% at the universities, and the present govt. promised before the elections there would be no hikes. So the students and the future students demonstrate against it, and its their right as democratic citizens, however not manhandling or damaging public and private properties. Thing what happens in our Asian wonderland, there were promises made before the election like, reducing the power of executive president, reducing the cabinet size, after the election all reversed and nothing left than lies, our idiotic fellow citizens still praising the president no backbone to go tho the streets to protest against these betrayals, I forgot in SL only the cabinet ministers can protest in front of embassies and high commissions or UN building.

This protest in UK has to do with the higher democratic values and freedom of speech and has nothing to do with LTTE or diaspora my dear fellow idiots. Try to clean in front of your house before laughing at your neighbor.
MrLanka Friday, 10 December 2010 08:02 AM
Now when the war is over, I think most people are fed up with talk about terrorists and LTTE. Once again this is a news item from abroad. It's about attacking the vehicle of Prince Charles and NOT about the LTTE.
The UK is a free country where everyone has the right to criticize the government and take to the streets. Their government would NOT call them terrorists. So stop dragging the same old story over and over again. Move on will ya...
Butaanis Wathee Friday, 10 December 2010 08:08 AM
But our protesters are "twenteenagers" and considered as adults. (Udul may be a thirteenager)

International student fees are significantly high in UK & Canada for which appropriate measures should be taken to cope with middle man's budget.

This is called Democracy, none spared! People have right to voice their grievances! Mind you these are not adults, but teenagers.

Thank you Britain.Politicians. For giving refugee to terrorist groups in your country. This is the influence of minority groups in your country Very soon they will try the the same tactics which the L.T.T.E tried in Srilanka.. This is what you get for adopting divide and policies to exploit other nations to satisfy your own politicians goals.
MR Friday, 10 December 2010 03:24 AM
Roads arnt closed + Special security on the roads + back up vehicals................but it all happens Srilanka.

ATTACKING THE PRINCE'S VEHICLE WILL NOT GET WHAT THE DEMONSTRATORS DEMAND BUT WHAT NEEDS TO BE ADMIRED IS THAT EVEN HIGH PROFILE VIPS MOVE AMONG PEOPLE, BE IT DEMONSTRATORS OR LAW ABIDING ORDINARY PEOPLE. IMAGINE THE FATE OF DEMONSTRATORS OVER HERE, EVEN IF IT WAS ONLY JEERING !

surely UK police cannot provide security with confidence. invite them for a special security course for sri lanka.
sltk2004 Friday, 10 December 2010 06:00 AM
This has no link to terrorist groups or minority groups. This protest was by university students against increase in fees.
Sidath B Friday, 10 December 2010 06:35 AM
It is no surprise in a FAILED STATE (as correctly worded recently)
Some more to expect as all terrorists and their sympathisers are housed in UK.
India tried this tactic earlier in 1980s and now they are suffering. Uk is doing the samething to maintain their colonial control over former colonies like Sri Lanka.
Sooner than later UK will eat their own shit.
net Friday, 10 December 2010 06:36 AM
British politicians dont care their own people now. They have to look after LTTE terrorists wellbeing more than their own people. Only LTTE pays high price for big currupted british politicians in UK. This is just crap. British people try to imitate like LTTE which is a prohibited by UK government.
Cobra Friday, 10 December 2010 06:42 AM
For people who are desperate royalty is of no concern. All they want to do is get their message through. One thing is sure though, the prince will never think of taking a helicopter but will want to meet those people and find out what their grievances are, unlike here. But the folks here are getting desperate too and it won't be long before they stone our 'princes' Defenders and BMWs as well!!!
