Commenting on the political situation in Sri Lanka, British Parliamentarian Lord Naseby has said he was unhappy that former British junior minister put down a question suggesting what happened in Sri Lanka was unconstitutional.
“That is not the law, I believe, of the UK Parliamentarian. You have your own Constitution. I have been very careful in my fifty years of service. I have never been supporting any one party nor doing any business. I would suggest my colleague that they should do exactly the same,” he said.
Former Foreign Secretary Sir Hugo Swire in the House of Commons earlier drawing attention to the political crisis in Sri Lanka asked the Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt to point out to the Sri Lankan President that the international community recognizes Ranil Wickremesinghe as the legitimate Prime Minister of Sri Lanka and only a vote in parliament can change his status.
Brilliant! What a slap to Brits (and the locals who worship West day and night) who think, SL is still under them.

He is unhappy. We are also unhappy about our foolish President's blunders.
Lord Wolfstein Wednesday, 07 November 2018 10:36 AM
It seems like you, our president and Baron Naseby have the same mental problems

These are just their personal opinions... Why should we bother? What matters is their official stance.

First he says constitutional. Then he says not anyone's place to make a comment. Make up your mind! Now all the MR fanboys will forget their comments about the West being bad and hail this relic as a hero.

What is important is what is said of the floor of Westminster Hall, and not under an Oak tree.

What matters is what is said in Washington.

Lord Naseby. Thank you for your support to Sri Lanka. But you too should not say that what has happened is "unusual" but not "unconstitutional" . After all you concede to not having read our constitution. All you Brits can mind your own business. We are educated enough to judge for our selves the constitutionality or otherwise of the dirty night of 26th October 2018.
Stan Tuesday, 06 November 2018 09:03 PM
Lord Naseby, your country does not have a constitution so "unusual things" that happen in the UK is not a good comparison to the situation in Sri Lanka.
jerome shockman Tuesday, 06 November 2018 09:16 PM
He said he read the Sri Lankan Constitution. What a pathetic liar.

Every country has stupid, cowerd or useless politicians like Lord Naseby. I wonder what gift MS gave Lord Naseby when he visited London. What is the use of your lordship if you cannot call 'Spade a spade'

Folks, do not lose sleep over this guy's comment, as no body in the UK knows this guy to take his views seriously!
