British PM David Cameron has got his wires crossed

British PM David Cameron, his conservative party and the opposition Labour party have become the puppets of the LTTE rump. LTTE rump rules UK now and what a shame for once a big Empire. British citizens may be crying in silence. When our President was invited to address Oxford University, LTTE rump headed by Global Tamil Forum, British Tamil Forum protested and demanded the British Government to stop him addressing the prestigious Oxford University and even went to the extent of asking the British Government to arrest him for war crime when he lands on British soil. The Cameron Government without a wink appeased the LTTE rump and connived with University and cancelled the invitation to the President Rajapaksa to address the Oxford University for security reasons. So the LTTE rump had the last word on UK Government on this issue. David Cameron should realise that the Government of Sri Lanka  could have easily stopped him going to Jaffna (despite domestic protests against the GoSL decision) mentioning security reasons as his Govt did to President Rajapaksa but GoSL did not want to stoop to that low level where British PM had sunk into.

Then came the film MADRAS CAFÉ which  was to be screened in UK movie theatres and LTTE rump made a big hullabaloo saying that LTTE is exposed as a terrorist outfit (WHY Not? That’s a fact) in the film and stopped screening it. Then, the LTTE rump forced Cameron to watch the Channel 4 Fictions on Sri Lanka before his departure to CHOGM and he came to Sri Lanka with pre-conceived pro-LTTE thoughts  which was clearly reflected in his speech and behaviour. All these show that the current British Government ( Including even previous Governments) acting as a puppet and manoeuvred and manipulated according to the LTTE rump’s needs. A British Empire once who ruled half of the world (right or wrong) has become a timid fox who dances to the tune of LTTE rump. Aren’t you Britishers ashamed of yourselves?

David Cameron has got his wires crossed thinking that he is still a colonial master and that Sri Lanka would listen to him and also using the CHOGM platform to air his anti-Sri Lankan views to appease the LTTE rump in UK. Let Cameron be reminded when Milliband & Kouscher were shown the exit to shut up and go by President Rajapaksa when both attempted to intervene to stop the war to enable for LTTE chief Prabahkaran to run away.

CHOGM is not Cameron’s or Britain’s private property but a meeting of 53 countries to discuss common agenda and none of the countries had any intention of lambasting other nations of the Commonwealth. But it was obvious that the hypocritical Cameron used CHOGM platform to please LTTE rump in UK  for the sake of his domestic political advantage. Despite thousands of atrocities committed by the British rule in Sri Lanka over our people, there was still remaining some respect for a few of the Suddhas (White men). But with the Cameron’s visit and his arrogant behaviour, that little respect we had was also vanished now.

Cameron should read and read again and again Tony Abbott’s address at the CHOGM as Cameron has a lot to learn from him who has only about three months experience as the Prime Minister of Australia unlike David Cameron has may be over 3 years’ experience. Tony Abbott showed brilliant statesmanship unlike the stupid Cameron who exposed his naivety in world politics. Following is an extract of his speech worthy of recognition.

Quote ”Finally, I acknowledge Sri Lanka as our host and as Commonwealth Chair for the next two years. This country has emerged from many troubles. But with peace has come more freedom and more prosperity – so we are here to praise, as much as to judge.

Sri Lanka’s willingness to host this Commonwealth shows its commitment to democratic pluralism and freedom based on law and ought to reassure all its citizens that just as today is better than yesterday, tomorrow will be better than today” Unquote

Lastly, we as Sri Lankans challenge him to release the full CHILCOT REPORT on Iraq invasion before his threat to GoSL demanding to complete LLRC recommendation before the next UNHRC Session in March 2014. Wonder whether he is speaking from his mouth or somewhere else?
