A Dimly Lit Sri Lankan Affair, In A Side Street Beneath The UN

By Jon Snow –

Jon Snow

Last night, in a dimly lit side street a stone’s throw from the towering UN headquarters here in New York, Britain co-hosted a drinks party with Sri Lanka. Australia joined the fray to render it a tripartite affair.

Large black shiny cars ferried Sri Lanka’s large UN delegation to the door of an un-extraordinary town house. The hosting of the party was personified by British Foreign Secretary, William Hague; Sri Lanka’s External Affairs Minister Gamini Peris and – six days into her job – Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop.

      Thanks Mr. Snow: Great article!
      The day Rajapassa becomes the head of the Commonwealth is the day the Commonwealth of Clowns circus – an irrelevant, morally and intellectually bankrupt, British colonial relic that is a platform for Third World Military Dictators who have no other place to grand stand – is DEAD AND BURIED. Commonwealth should have been SHUT DOWN a long time ago.
      India a wanna-be super power, with the largest number of poor people on the plant, that suffers from Delusions of Grandeur has hi-jacked the Commonwealth Circus with Britain’s consent to further its own nasty brand of regional politics in South Asia among other things.
      CHOGM is a huge waste of money of Sri Lankan tax payers funds to boost a military dictator that has looted and bankrupted the economy, and civil society and the opposition will be on the streets of Colombo to protest CHOGM

      CH4 Team — oiled, fed and greased by the LTTE rump … Interesting photos, Jon Snow/CT!
      There are many VIP’s who can be taken to the any smelly pit by people like Jon S and LTTE rumps … But, new Australia’s Foreign Minister Julie Bishop (six days into her job) can not be fooled by their sob stories … She had been to SL and traveled all over the country …. I read her views on Sri Lanka and impressed by the independent honest views expresed by her … World is fortunate to get people like her in higher places. She is not easily swayed by the opinions and propagandas of LTTE rump and extremely biased CH4 team …. Obsession by CH4 about Sri Lanka is only second to the obsession of the 70 something years old girl called Pillay …

      Poor old Jonny. After all his ‘exposures’ his own Government pays no attention to his ravings. Must be very frustrating!! If he had hung around outside the door someone would have thrown him some crumbs. Poor old Jonny.

        I watched the C4 coverage of this. Willaim Hague is still a differnt class and did not mention Sri Lanka in his short speech.

        The Australians on the other hand proved that they were ex convicts from England

      Dispersed Tamils around the globe think that the world is rotating around the mythical Eellaam. … It took three decades for them to know the place called Nanthikadal. … They come to know and then forget … What a bunch of loosens … .. When the core consists of deceit, lies, false history, false propaganda and all other bad things, the Eelam caravan would not go anywhere except to the bottom of the sea in the long run …
      Massaging politicians all over the world through fronts like ‘Tamils for Obama’ , ‘Tamils for Rudd’, ‘tamils for Hillary’ ‘Tamils for suckers’ does not work, guys … Because they know these Tamils BS’es but they use it for their own goods … Then, these Tamils curse, cry, repent … Very pathetic and humiliating to see the display of their frustration …

    Silly man. Don’t you know that the whole world is full of admiration for the king of Sri Lanka who wiped out terrorism? The reason the queen is not coming is that she cannot bear to be in the presence of this man whom the whole world recognizes as being far more powerful than her and her crumbling empire.

    If you have any doubts ask that ambassadore fellow, the plenipotentiary, the doctor his strategist who has this doctrin that all the Tamils should be killed and the king and countrymen should take to arms and fight the most glorious struggle to the sweet end of martyredom in the happy hills of uva and on the plans leading to the harbor in hambantot with war drums a banging and all that rather than get build a democracy based on the rule of law and get rid of this stupid sinhala buddhism trash.

    As for your friends in new york they are very happy to own that they enjoyed themselves killing off the Indians with torture, rape and all that and that they have no regrets since if they had not done that they would have grandson gandhi as president and they have had enough of sonna boy bush. So they would happily drink to King Percival and his botched attempt at genocide and gladly help him finish the job properly.

    We all know who agreed that the destruction of terrorism was worth all of 250,000 Tamil lives. Who cares for Tamils anyway.

      The reason why the queen is not participating is that the Duke of 94 years is not in a position to accompany her due health concerns. A near 13 hour journey and different cuisine will not be suitable after abdominal surgery . Stop twisting facts , which is the LTTE trait for any incident in their favour . Channel 4 whose director is married to a Tamil from Jaffna must be initiating its presenters to mislead the international community and the gullible public . NO one can accurately predict what happens in a war situation .Channel 4 nutters present their documentaries ,only on hearsay and gossip . They even misinterpreted and deliberately twisted the Tamil translation , in order to give credibility to their dubious films , No fire Zone and Killing fields.

    J Snow and C4 seem to have a selective conscious regards to war crimes. The so called war crimes committed by SL forces are in their words (C4) are allegations. No one committed greater crimes against the Tamils than J Snow’s countrymen, the British. Tamils were herded into plantations, taken as slaves to Africa and Americas, raped routinely, treated like sub humans. The British personnel are yet busy with murder in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria. There are many well documented British atrocities GLOBALLY, but not a word from C4 and J Snow on those barbaric British past-times. Of course, they brought Britain wealth, just like Tamil diaspora money is there for grabs as rewards for those publicising their agenda. Yes, the Sri Lankans, the Brits and Aussies had a party in New York but, the party J Snow and the carpet baggers would have had a grander, lavish celebration later the same evening. All at the expense of the diaspora, the money they collected from poor Tamils at gun point. Shame!!!

    In these dimly lit conditions Jon Snow was feeling for what ?????

    For an uncouth Jon Snow anything is good enough to create a mountain of a molehill. His heart is aching for his paymasters as he could not give a good impression & an account of himself this time around. Fearing a reduction to his santhosams is the result of this rhetorics.

    Manners man….. manners…this is what happens when a person from British gutters take up Journalism.

    Quote “Surely Sir.this is by invite.Geusts do not say thankyou and bash the hosts with such rhetorics at the party.
    That would be a disaster and an insult to the hosts

    UNFORTUNATELY, JON SNOW DOES NOT EVOLVE FROM SUCH SOCIETY TO BE AWARE OF BRITISH MANNERS….He is learning & will learn more if happens to be invited to Sri Lanka to attend CHGOM.

    Jon Snow must be akin to the Second Coming judging by the excitement he has created among the usual suspects;- Wambotta and co.
    Incidentally, how about a SHRED of evidence that any of these people have been bribed by the LTTE or whatever you want to call Tamils? You can’t produce any because you havent got any, you b…s. While you are being well looked after by the Rajapassas!

    Jon Snow sold his soul to the LTTE terrorists a long ago. His ‘reports’ are always slanted against Sri Lanka
