After CHOGM And The LTTE Rump

By R.A.Ratwatte –

Well, the Diaspora or the LTTE rump or the disgruntled slightly guilty bunch of expatriates living all over the world, gave it their best shot! Using loads of the extorted but in most cases “willingly” donated funds that have been collected for the “cause” they bought everything from journalists to politicians and all things in between. There was an absolute barrage of “noise” (no doubt similar to the barrage and the noise at Nandikadal at the end of the war) designed to bring negative publicity to the host.

Some Countries were actually coerced into participating to varying degrees. Canada that identified the Tamil people as ideal to fill the demographic gap in their population (namely hard working and willing to live under harsh conditions) as early as the 1970’s has a large vote base of that ethnicity. The Tamil people both from Jaffna and South India are used to harsh weather, so the Canadian winter doesn’t faze them.  Since the living conditions in Canada are far superior to what they are used to and they are industrious and driven by economic prosperity, they will do the menial jobs that the white man won’t do and the black man is too lazy to do. So it was not really sympathy that drove the Canadians to take the Tamil people in and now they have to make allowance for their voting rights under a democracy, hence cheap politics carried the day.

PCIndia has finally shown their true colours! During Indira Ghandi’s regime it was an accepted fact that India actively promoted terrorist activity in all India’s’ neighbouring Countries. The LTTE was a group funded and trained by India and by not attending CHOGM, what they have established is that they have no real interest in Sri Lankas’ welfare. Instead they have finally tacitly admitted that they have failed to appease the howling mob of malcontents in Tamilnad and have to rethink their strategy. Meanwhile they have driven Sri lanka into the arms of China and possible Russia and Iran and of course Pakistan.

A pineapple grower in Mauritius has little or no significance and may have been bullied by India to back them up.

The Brits behaved true to form. When it was done by us it was all right but when anyone else tries to do it, it is not acceptable. This is the way all the dominant Countries with colonial or pseudo colonial backgrounds tend to behave and it only parodies what their ancestors did with much more aplomb. The wonderfully charismatic presence of Prince Charles overshadowed the rather pathetic attempts of their Prime Minister.

Now I am no supporter of this regime in Sri Lanka. I abhor the family bandism, the catcherism, the “ape miniha can do no wrong syndrome” and all other things that go with this regime. However when trying to rationally asses the aftermath of the CHOGM, I am compelled to say that I feel more good has been done to the Rajapaksa cause that harm.

    “Now I am no supporter of this regime in Sri Lanka.” “I am compelled to say that I feel more good has been done to the Rajapaksa cause that harm.”

    True to form Sinhala racist lamenting about the things to come for his beloved nation.

    These bhikkus are so arrogant that they have to sit down while the future king of the UK, is doing something humbly with the bhikku. I wonder what he is doing?

      Main point is that if Rajapassa had not willing JUMPED into the CHOGM WELL, he would not have a ticking time bomb of an international inquiry into the war from the British and US on his head!

      What a friggin clown this Godeya village idiot Rajapassa is! IN his desperation for international recognition and TRIPS he wasted billions on a British Colonial relic organization CIRCUS that celebrates colonialism and was rewarded with the threat of a war crimes trial and and now protesting British colonialism..!

      Rajapassa and the Sri Lanka foreign ministry have got their brains up their ASS and knickers in a ROYAL TWIST!

      These Ratwattes who are decedents of TAX collectors for British Colonial times, still a curse to the country… This guy is talking about physical strengths of Tamil people sustaining harsh weather conditions.. Buxx Shit…

      MR Ratwattes, you should investigate kinds of strengths your forefathers had to maintain their jobs as mere Tax collectors but also become royals in SL. May be it is the strength your mothers had :-(

        Don’t mix up the original sinhala ‘radala’ class with the new radala class created by the British. Ratwatte’s were original radalas so I guess they did not have to go after the british.

        Do some justice to the country’s history, first learn it if you are going to write about it.

      tHIRU, I WONDER WHETHER CHARLES KNOWS WHAT HE’ DOING. HE’S BEEN A BIT OF A NITWIT FROM THE TIME HE ENTERED PUBLIC LIFE, SO TO SAY. TRIKE ME AS BEING SOMETHING OF A DUNCE TOO AND NOT VERY MUCH IN EVIDENCE TO SUGGEST HE’S GOT HIGH MORAL VALUES.HE’S NOT HAD ANY SORT OF RELIGIOUS BELIEF THOUGH HE’S ANGLICAN BY NAME ONLY. IN FACT, HE’S PERHAPS ENGLAND’S TOP FREEMASON AND AFTER THE QUEEN PASSES ON WILL BE CROWNED KING. BUT KING OF WHAT…NOW THERE YOU’VE GOT ME FLOORED. A KING WHO IS KEPT ALIVE WITH TAXES FROM THE POOR MAN? A KING WHO HA TO BEG FOR A N INCREASE OF ALLOWANCE FROM THE BRITISH PARLIAMENT ? A KING OF CLOWNS ?

      ANY WONDER THAT OLD LIZZIE IS HANGING ON TO LIFE.. AND THE CROWN FOR AS LONG AS SHE CAN? WHO’D WANT TO ALLOW SUCH A MEDIOCRITY TO BECOME KING.

      ALSO, WHO DOE YOUR GOVERNMENT HAVE TO IMPOSE BUDDHISM ON EACH AND EVERY VISITOR TO THE COUNTRY…AND TO HELL WHETHER THEY LIKE IT OR NOT ? THAT’S A GROSS WAY OF ABUSING A GUEST’S PERSONAL CHOICES. THERE’S SOMETHING SICKENINGLY ” SICK” ABOUT IT.

      IS THIS DONE IN ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON EARTH?

      I DOUBT IT. IT’S A SICKENING SPPECTACLE..AT LEAST TO ME.CHARLES, AN ANGLICAN, LOOKS A SAD SPECTACLE THERE, SUBMITTING HIMSELF TO THE RELIGIOUS RITES OF ANOTHER RELIGION MERELY BECAUSE THE RULERS IN THIS COUNTRY IMPOSED IT ON HIM.

      WHAT A SAVAGE WAY TO TREAT A GOODWILL GUEST.

      Buddhist Monks do not stand up to respect any dignitary, be it king or queen of any nation. It is the nobility of Buddhist teachings. Whether that agrees with anyone’s own faith is irrelevant. When Prnice Charles visited Sri Dalada Maligawa in Kandy, he has to adhere to local customs and traditions.

      Also, it is appalling that every critique written here are making it a crime to be a Sinhalese, and that Sinhalese are racists!!!

      How hypocritical? But it is OK for Tamils to group and call Tamil-only land, Tamil sentiment, Tamil people’s feelings… the the crock of racist rants. Tamils are the most racist, mono-ethnic, mono-cultural disrespectful people I have seen or met, expect for a very little number of tamil moderates.

      Remember, the majority of Tamils in SL live with Sinhalese and Muslims south of SL.

      The war is over. Pirapaharan asked for his fate. He got it. There is peace. No LTTE is abducting kids from schools and their homes… Parents are happy to hear their kids are safe now, than garlanded with a cyanide capsule around their neck to be trained by Aunty Adele. No more suicide bombings.. there is economic prosperity. Infrastructure is being built, which are needed to provide the North and the East of SL with electricity, transport, irrigation for farming, market accessibility, telecommunications, etc… which were completely destroyed by Pirapaharan and Co. (PVT) Ltd.

      Think about it. You Tamils have nothing but to complain about everything. When SL government soldiers rescued you from LTTE’s forced abduction to form human shield, as you tried to escape across the lagoons and jungle LTTE shooting at you and detonating suicide bombers to kill innocent escaping civilians… you kept on complaining that it was SL forces that shot and killed you…. You dd not appreciate how SL govt soldiers put their lives second to yours just to save you from LTTE and took care of you and your families by providing temporary shelters, medical care, cooking and feeding you… it was the largest human exodus in recent human history!! Yet, you turned the truth around and complained SL forces destroyed you.

      Even now, you are letting Indian Fishermen trespass in your own territorial waters and STEAL your own seafood, just because they are your “brothers” from TAMILNADU!!! How hypocritical!!!

      When you complained that SL was threatening to kill you andracially persecuted you.. just to get on a boat to sail tens of thousands of miles across the oceans to Australia, Canada and other countries far away… Yet none of you ever crossed over 32 miles to Tamil Nadu where your “Brothers and sisters” are plentiful!!! Greener pastures and economic reasons only drove you there..

      But then, TAMILS are NOT the only affected fols with poverty and lack of resourcces…there are literally millions of Sri Lankans in the south that lack basic facilities like shelter, running water, electricity, proper education, employment prospects, without proper irrigation, etc.. But you complain to foreign political leaders that all that is experienced by Tamils only.

      With this attitude, the Tamils in the North and East will NEVER be able to live in Sri Lanka peacefully and in harmony with the Sinhalese, Muslims and other Tamils in the South!!!

      Not only Tamils feel hunger and pain!!!

      Come together and mix with everyone in SL. The country belongs to every ethnic variety that lives there. As long as there will be a sun and the moon, Tamils will NOT get a separate land to call it a fictitious Tamil Eelam!!

    ”cheap politics carried the day”

    1.The LTTE were finished off in May 2009.

    Does the author know what has been happening since then? More atrocious things than what happened since 1948.

    2.What has been happening at the UN for siz decades while all forms of oppressio of ethnic minorities have been oppressed?

    The successive, ”sovereign” governments of Sri Lanka have been expertly controlling damage at the UN where the oppressed have no representation. Now the oppressed who left the shores of Sri Lanka have been telling the rest of the world what has been happening to them. But short-termism of politics and trade has been slow to raise voices for human rights of the oppressed. But when that violation goes beyond a certain point there will be naturally voices of concern from the outside world.

    Whatelse would/should happen?

    Neighbours may ignore the ill-treatment going on in a household near them for a while after which they’ll knock at the door and demand what’s happenig there. That’s natural for human beings.

    3.The author doesn’t know what some of those in yellow robes like those in the picture have been doing since 1948??

    What a lot of tosh this guy has written! He is very bitter that the Sinhala Buddhist Hegemonic project is challenged. If 1983 had not occurred, the Tamil mass migration would not have happened. He makes it sound like that Canada itself orchestrated the riots in order to draw the Tamils to Canada!

    Dear Mr Ratwatte,

    You Sinhalese funded nearly two third of national wealth that was hard earned by poor Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim masses to establish a Buddhist Sinhala only nation for a few fundamentalist Sinhala terrorist. Your brutal attack on the poor masses of Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim communities since 1958 shows your interest. JVP and LTTE are outcomes of the Buddhist Sinhala fundamentalism. You praise the fundamentalist Rajapakse Family for massacres. Gotapaya is the man responsible for the massacre of Sinhalese youths in 1989 and Tamil youths in 2009.

      Sinhala buddhist only nation? That is the pathetic argument you criminals make before you unleash your violence don’t you?

      The so called sinhala buddhist nation does not state any state religion in the constitution, almost all major religions are thriving on it, it has tamil as a state language when even India does not, it allows muslims to practice some amount of Muslim law unlike other multi ethnic countries, it has devolved power in response to a violent separatist movement unlike any other country. I could continue on and on but haters would not see any positive in this country but will always cling to the past and plan violence against us.

        You should understand who are the real criminals.It is not about what is written in constitution or in law books unless those in power practice them. You Sinhalese never obey your constitution or law. Under which law Jaffna library was burnt and under which law the criminals were not punished? Under which constitution you killed over 70,000 civilians and where is the law to punish those criminals.

            It is not a mistake and it was dome by Sinhala ministers and Sinhala forces. Mistakes were repeated several times and recent attacks on mosques, temples and churches are repeats. It is not hate. These are facts. You have a different law for Buddhist Sinhala and different law for others. You didn’t answer my questions about where is the law and order and justice system for thousands of disappearances and the cold blooded murder of civilians?

            Let me see,

            Burning the library is alright as long as it is rebuilt.

            Good logic.

            However the issue is about the building alone. Its to do with culture, heritage, memories, and so on. I know it is difficult for you to understand.

            Now can you give those rare books and old ola manuscripts back to the Library?

            You rape a virgin and justify by restoring her hymen back into her ‎Vagina.

            Why did you rape her in the first place?

            You will never understand her pain, suffering, trauma, and recurring nightmares. Hence your are Sinhala/Buddhist.

        Meharak tota gemba’s independence is an accident caused by the new US Pres. Truman and a tired Churchill with a blitzed London.

        While the Northern Ceylonese joined the British Army and fought the Fascist Zen Buddhist Japan at Rangoon You ala batala Higano sided with the Japanese, spied for them , and then went an hid in Tamil Nadu for fear. ;)

        It was when your canny matinee started importing chillies and onions that the JT’s felt hopeless and fled to TN. By accident they met retired Indian British Forces who had bravely fought alongside with the Northern Ceylonese from Brussels to Burma. You created it they will finish you to the finish like the Diego Garcians. (o|o) (o|o)

    I said somewhere else in CT that there is lot of crap written here. This is one example.

    Basically the author wants to kiss the arse of the Rajapakse regime and taking a long winded route and enroute he wants to vent his frustration on here of the success of the Tamils all over the world.

    What crap from this ratwatte guy. A warped mind no doubt. He says that SL has been forced to cluck with Iran and china and Pakistan because India boycotted the summit. MR has been sleeping with these guys for a long time now because they are birds of the same feather who know how to rob and cheat. The comments against the colonial British are laughable – it was Kandyan sycophants like the Ratwattes who kowtowed with the colonials and sold the country during the British reign. And what a racist to sya that the Tamils were accepted in Canada because they accepted the menial jobs. This prick does not appreciate the value of hard work and making an honest buck. Obviously he has been using his name and so called high class Kandyan heritage to receive favors and is now trying to talk about values which he has no understanding of.

    Why only talk about Tamils? Tens of thousands of Sinhalese men and women (more than a million) doing menial jobs (cleaners, nannies, maids, drivers, etc) in the middle-east under very harsh conditions (very hot summer and cold winter). There are enough of Sinhalese also in the West doing menial jobs. The advantage the Tamils had was, they were accepted as refugees and provided everything including the citizenship. The Tamils are always intelligent and hard working. The Sinhalese were Modayas and lazy but now they have no choice but to work under harsh conditions in the Middle-East

    Time and again I see contributors here regularly criticizing members of the international community who apply pressure to the GOSL to conduct credible investigations into the allegations of war crimes and crimes against humanity during the final phase of the war. From what I have noticed, their arguments pivot on any or all of the following four bases:

    1) “They have made mistakes too! Therefore they have no right to ask us to investigate; THEY are the ones that should be investigated in the first place!” (President Rajapakse’s “People in glass houses should not throw stones” rhetoric)
    2) “LTTE did wrong; where were you and why didn’t you say anything then?”
    3) “They have been misled by the LTTE rump.” This argument has two variants: One implies that the int’l community is being misled but they are acting in good faith; the other accuses the int’l community of being opportunistic and trying to use this issue to win Diaspora Tamil votes
    4) “We did nothing wrong, why should we investigate?”

    Now, the first two arguments make no attempt to deny culpability (ie: devoid of implicit or explicit denial) and hence, implicitly accept guilt; these would, therefore, strengthen the arguments of the international community. If these two arguments are pursued there is a risk that Sri Lanka will be increasingly isolated by the powerful western bloc which is detrimental to all the communities in the island, at least in the next 50-100 years, for that’s how long, I believe, that the Western bloc’s reign of power will last. Beyond that, although it is probable that a China-led power reign could begin, whether it will bring benefits to tiny nations like Sri Lanka is highly debatable. Given all this uncertainty, would it not be better to extend the hand of friendship to the international community as a whole?

    The other two arguments implicitly and explicitly, respectively, claim inculpability. If that is truly the case, would it not be even more beneficial to accede to the int’l community’s requests, get funding to conduct such an investigation and prove to the world and more importantly to the Tamils that they are as important to Sri Lanka as any other community in the island? This would also pave the way for greater investment and support from the int’l community which will accelerate our country’s development and bring prosperity to all.

    To put my above views in a more prosaic way, I give below this scenario. If this was a drama that you are watching on the television, just ask yourselves as to what would you think about Tom’s culpability when he gives four different answers to Jim:

    Tom, Dave & Jim are brothers. Jim is the oldest and Dave is the youngest. Dave has accused Tom of stealing his bat. Jim is questioning Tom:
    1.
    Jim: Tom, did you take Dave’s bat? Can you search your cupboard or shall I?
    Tom: Why are you asking me? I saw you taking John’s bat!
    2.
    Jim: Tom, did you take Dave’s bat? Can you search your cupboard or shall I?
    Tom: Dave was hitting me with the bat! Where were you when he was hitting me?
    3 a
    Jim: Tom, did you take Dave’s bat? Can you search your cupboard or shall I?
    Tom: Dave’s mates have been misleading you to make you get the bat for him.
    3 b
    Jim: Tom, did you take Dave’s bat? Can you search your cupboard or shall I?
    Tom: You are trying to help Dave because his mates have promised to help you get a job.
    4
    Jim: Tom, did you take Dave’s bat? Can you search your cupboard or shall I?
    Tom: I have done no wrong, why should I search my cupboard? Why would I let you search it?

    I ask my honest Sinhala brothers & sisters to think about these issues carefully. If we knew 40,000 people will be killed would we have allowed that massacre to happen? No! If we find out that it really happened, then should we not bring the Government to justice for that terrible deed? On the other hand, if we find out that it really did not happen, won’t we be happy and relieved? How great will that feeling be if we can prove to the whole world that Sri Lanka was and is a safe place for all civilians but has no place for terrorism?

      Going by the same logic should not UK open up their country for foreigners to intervene? Do you ever think why they don’t allow that? Because they are not idiotic enough to risk the future of their country.

      You will give all the high talk but if some injustice happen to us by an international community that has time and again shown to be biased will you be here to face the consequences? No if you are not already left you will leave the country in the next plane.

        Type one response, Liberal one. This equates acceptance of guilt.
        Nevertheless I will try to answer your question by posing you another; Can you tell me why President Rajapakse did not publicly ask Prime minister Cameron to investigate UK’s past crimes when Mr Cameron publicly delivered an ultimatum to Sri Lanka? President Rajapakse chose instead to deliver a non-targeted rebuttal (stones and glass houses). Why is that? What are the geo-political dynamics that forced President Rajapakse to refrain from attacking prime minister Cameron directly? Who stands to lose in this ‘battle’?

        Before LTTE sat through several rounds of negotiations with GOSL, they had put down a condition of parity status. Although that parity status was given to them, in theory, for the purposes of the negotiations, they never really enjoyed that in practice.

        In the same way, although UK and Sri Lanka are in theory sovereign nations with equal status, in the world stage Sri Lanka is a minnow. That is the reality. If we have to change that, we need to develop. We can’t and won’t develop as long as we have this unhelpful attitude.

          “President Rajapakse chose instead to deliver a non-targeted rebuttal (stones and glass houses)”
          It was very well targeted at Cameron and others who are behind Cameron.
          Cameron got a stomach full when he sat with the President face to face and the BBC correspondent said “The PM’s face says it all” when he saw Camarons face like a flat tyre.
          It was quite apparent to every one that Camaron was politicking here for the next election and there was no real conviction in his action with regard to HR or the welfare of the Tamils here.

          “What are the geo-political dynamics that forced President Rajapakse to refrain from attacking prime minister Cameron directly? Who stands to lose in this ‘battle’?”

          There was no real necessity to attack Camaron in public since all he was doing was politicking. As for the battle Camaron has already lost it in the parliament when he was exposed by the labour.
          There will be no inquiry at least until some one come up with who’s who the 40,000 you claim to be either dead or disappeared.

        (゜゜)~ Do you ever think why they don’t allow that?(゜゜)~

        You never know how much the Anglo Saxon’s suffered. You know nothing about British History except you were their subjects via East India Company- the classic tatte motte.

        Lanka belongs to Baharat and we have seen what you have done in 65 years. Like Hong Kong it will be taken back with the blessings of China. Then we make it the only Sinhala Buddhist Schedule Caste State of India that gives you quotas than enlarge your begging bowls and committing genocide.

    The writer is misinformed.
    There are no ‘menial jobs’ in western countries.Each person has his duty to perform,in state or private departments/enterprises.
    In all workplaces,all are on par with each other,and eat in common cafetaris – the man who cleans the floor sits next to the technocrat and exchanges pleasantries.
    Some who are physically able,do two jobs – one in the morning & afternoon,and one in the evenings upto & beyond midnight – upto 6 or 7 days a week.After one year they run a used car,after three years they make down payment on a mortgage for a home – to be paid for monthly during 20 – 25 years.All living accomodation has basic facilies,enforced by law.
    They do not give cash for political causes – only their presence and encouragement – of course with personal expenses.
    Their immigration is not “sympathy” based – only on physical and mental/educational fitness – immigration interviews are harsh and searching.
    They vote in orderly elections which are 100% not flawed.If they become friendly with the local neighbours,even decide to contest elective office.Their “causes” are decided upon by literate neighbours & fellow citizens who verify information on the internet.
    There is nothing called “cheap politics” – decisions are made on information & knowledge without any threats and coercion.

    India need not have interest in ‘welfare’ of any other nation – except in economic matters.
    Tamils are a fair portion of the popuation and hence Tmil Nadu has political clout – the centre hence listens and decides on intervention according to their humane principles – as shown by Indira Ghandi and others.

    The “pineapple grower” is a prosperous nation with a literate population with a sizable tamil minority who make the government aware of injustices,locally and back home – and the government listens,confirms and decides – hence the CHOGM boycott.
    P.S
    The picture of Prince Charles probably getting a ‘pirith noola’ tied on his wrist by a monk whose fellow monks of BBS behave like hooligans,
    is hilarious – The Buddha never laid down such rituals – next time he may have ‘relics’ placed on his head!!

        Abhaya,
        You dont get it do you?
        Whatever job one does in developed nations,you are not
        “looked down” upon as an inferior.
        A job is a job – garbage collecter,road repair worker,window cleaner,floor polisher,home (including the washroom) cleaner
        etc. You are treated as an equal.

          Doing a job is better than not doing a job. Doing a job is far better than stealing public money.

          Sending their women folks to toil and die in middle east far worse than stealing public money.

          While women folks are away raping their own daughters are far worse than sending their women folks to middle east.

          Abhaya Premawardena

          When do you expect your wife to return from Middle East? In the meantime why don’t you look for a job? I believe hangman job is still vacant.

    Ratwatte,

    What you have exhibited in your article is a volatile combination of hateful stupidity, vituperative racism (“the black man is too lazy to do!”), and an imbecilic narrow mindedness. And, in that, you possibly personify the current status of the most-likely inbred Kandyan radallas who have now been reduced to back-licking the “patha rataya’s” whom your clan wouldn’t touch with a six-foot pole even as recent as a couple of decades ago.

    You confirm that you rightly and richly deserve this current standing of yours! The patha-ratayas have now shown who has the better-brain and who the master is!!

    How do you reconcile your spiteful description of the Tamils as doing menial work while they have proved to be the most successful among immigrants in all professional fields including acquiring so many political positions in almost all of the civilized countries, while you continue to eagerly export your wives, daughters and mothers to service the oil-mudhalali’s for the measly petro-dollars!

    Even those measly dollars are being enjoyed by the Maserati-buying Hambantota goons with only the crumbs being thrown to the mouth-gaping radallas.

    Here is a little history lesson for you.

    Since independence, in the first decade or two it is the plantation Tamils who earned the foreign exchange for the country.

    In the next two decades, Tamil professionals (accountants, doctors, engineers) invited abroad earned most of the foreign currency the country needed.

    Then you chased all the Tamils away periodically, culminating in the mass exodus of in 1983 thinking you could have the whole pie – not knowing where the pie came from.

    And so, in the last two decades, your source of income got reduced to service charges the oil-mudhalali’s of the Middle-East tuck in to your wives, daughters and mothers!

    As that too is drying up, your new bosses have now sold half of the nation to China – good luck retrieving any of part of it.

    This guy is no different to Rajapaksa regime and acolytes, with his racist and Sinhala supremacist talk.

    That fact that brands any and all foreign criticism as Tamil diaspora engineered should immediately scratch him off as a decent and relatively honest critic of Lanka. He does nothing but regurgitate the same tired old cliches put forth by the Sinhala nationalists.

    It is absolutely ludicrous to imagine that Tamils weild any influence to effect soo many major foreign entites ; when the simpler explanation is that these foreign entities simply see the state of Sri Lanka and the evidence of GOSL war crimes and acting on that. If Tamil diaspora was as influential as Sinhala Supremacists proclaim, there would have been an Ealam by now.

    Ratwatte is waitng to bury his head half way up the arse of mahinda, his haed was buried in gota’s arse for more than two years and he is tried of it now loking for new ventures. Good luck racist number one who says black are lazy. Ironically he forgets that he is a decedent of ape, he looks like an ape. By comparing him to an ape I may be insulting the apes.

    I will also add that Canada does not have a large Black population like its neighbour to the South.

    This Sinhala writer parrots the racecentric White right wing line that Blacks are “too lazy” , when the real issue is that Canadians or Americans (Black or White) will work hard, just as long as they are paid an honest wage. The issuse is that too many employers just don’t want to pay a living wage.

    So.. Ratwatte,

    you don’t like the diaspora, you don’t like the rajapakse’s, you don’t like the indians, you don’t like the brits….

    Do you like or agree with yourself at least?

    Mr Ratwatte,
    Your story reeks of racial hatred towards Tamils. If Tamils are hardworking and the West recognises it what is your grievance. That your government chose to annihilate Tamils and deny their rights while the West took pity on them should not detract you from the fact you who are of the majority want Tamils subservient in their own homeland.

    True, we had to fight harder to gain parity in our own homeland while the Sinhalese are given all privilelges over us minority.
    Get a life and get some semblance of balance.

    War crimes probe by the ICC is gathering momentum and it is up to you to provide justification the genocide was not real and cooked up.
    Best of luck.

    SAD to see that the Mahanayakes’ peak duties are limited to putting a knot on pirith nooluwa here and there. Probably they are told in no uncertain terms to collect dhana and open their mouths only to eat the food they shamelessly earned!!

    Ratwatte’s rant against the Tamil diaspora shows how rattled he is by the terrible hammering the regime he claims to hate got from all quarters. He appears to have completely forgotten that the poor Sinhala people toiling as slaves in the Middle East to keep Sri Lanka afloat and the Rajapaksa clan and his cronies wealthy.

    If we are to believe Ratwatte’s and the regime’s supporter’s claims, I must say that the Tamil diaspora seems to have far greater clout than the Sri Lankan government’s in being able to influence many governments’ foreign policies towards Sri Lanka. That shows how powerful the Tamil coolies are in these countries. More power to them, I say.

    you can be sarcastic and call the Tamil Diaspora LTTE rump..menialworkers, licking the white arse…etc and then have an arrack at cinnamon Grand ..did I say arrack? wow you guys have malt whisky now!

    nevermind enjoy your drink at Cinnomon Grand

    What you have to fear is not the LTTE rump, not the Tamil menial worker…but the next generation …the children of the Tamil Diaspora….

      A Rotweiller will have less ferocious looks. Remember how his erstwhile namesake and his 2 sons massacred innocent ballot-carrying youth in broad daylight at Udatalawinna. Today, they are free citizens holding high public office and respected as belonging to the Radalas. Bathalas will be a better classification.
