‘Effervescence’ Of The UK Manifestos

By K. Anaga

After having exhausted the reading of the Presidential candidates’ manifestos, Sri Lankans appear to be busy dissecting the manifestos put out by the political parties in UK prior to their general elections to be held shortly. It is evident from the statement Issued by the Ms Manisha Gunasekera, the High Commissioner, that the Sri Lankan government is concerned about the manifesto issued by all the political parties in general and the conservative party in particular.

Jeremy Corbyn & Boris Johnson

In her letter to the Co-chair of the conservative party as per the press reports, Ms Manisha labeled as unacceptable the assertion in the Tory manifesto that Sri Lanka would require a two state solution to end the simmering ethnic conflict. She also noted that it has never been the position of any political party in the United Kingdom.

Manisha you are correct. If this position was adopted by the British government and the major political parties at the time freedom was give to us on a Silver Plate, we would not have gone through genocides, murders, mayhem and the formation of the liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam to fight the Tamil cause. 

If the Tamil problems and solutions were adequately mentioned in the manifestos of our presidential candidates, the political parties in UK may not have rightly referred  to a ‘Two State’ solution for Sri Lanka. 

It appears even the so called ‘enlightened’ political parties, Conservatives, Labour and to some extent the Liberals in England, live to learn and then learn to live, rather too late. It is unfortunate that it took over 28 years (1976) for the Tamil parties to fight to re- establish the status quo of a separate Tamil kingdom which existed prior to the British take over. Ironically it took over 70 years for the political parties in UK to realize that they have failed to fathom the trials and tribulation undergone by the Tamils under a unitary regime which was/is the cause of the present situation.

The British political parties would have turned a blind eye to the sufferings of the Tamils in Sri Lanka, if not for the inundation of London initially by Sri Lankan Tamils who were forced to flee Ceylon from 1958 initially in a trickle and thereafter from 1977 on words, as a stream and from 1983 on words like a flood, over flowing into River Thames.

As stated elsewhere in the press on Sunday, “Britain is in the throes of a general election. Both the Conservatives and the Labour are desperately fighting to win the Tamil votes and thus play to the Eelam gallery, But in the Tory pursuit to grab the votes and clinch the polls- has it gone too far to hurt the sensitiveness of Sri Lanka”? If, promising more and more to the Tamils by the political parties in a competitive manner in UK will hurt Sri Lanaka, what about the Sri Lankan Sinhala political parties, namely UNP, SlFP, Podu Jana Peramuna and even other parties who are fighting/competing among themselves to give less and less to the Tamils to get more and more Sinhala Buddhist votes, and clinch the polls at the expense of the Tamils and Tamil speaking Muslims. Not only to  grab the votes but even to grab the lands belonging to the Tamils and Hindu Temples, to seat Lord Buddha, with ulterior motives. Do you think that Tamils are not sensitive?

If the British government did not support the war against the Tamils along with India, Pakistan, USA and China or at least sort out the problems after the war in a genuine manner, the need to include our problem in British manifestos may not have arisen. A little bit of hypocrisy?

More than Sri Lanaka, Britain is responsible for the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka today, due to their diplomatic blunder at the time of our independence. As if to add insult to injury Britain supported the war against the Tamils, despite the fact they were/are responsible for the plight of all Sri Lankans today.

Britain appears to be making an effort to close the stable after about fifty thousand horses have died and a million horses have fled. Sri Lanka’s loss is a gain for the west in general and Britain in particular. At least after 70 years of independence, realize your folly and remedy the situation please.

May I take this opportunity to appeal to Her Majesty the Queen to request the parliamentary contestants to stop the political effervescent, unless it is coupled with appropriate action, as this will only precipitate matters. It will not bring in the desired results to the Tamils of Sri Lanka.

    Anaga: Tamils are nothing in British elections even though you try to be important by publishing articles, Sri Lankan web blogs but not in Completely British web blogs. You know the two candidates. What is important for Britain is Brexit and the Trade fact with the USA. Every Britisher knows it I suppose and Politicians understand it well. The muslim terrorist attack on the Thames Bridge, is that also election – politics ?

      I am not trying to be important personally. I am hi-lighting matter what is important to the Tamils as they have now spread all over the world- thanks to the Sinhalese. I have only replied to those Srilankans who have made comments on the British political Parties, manifestos.
      No one is preventing you from becoming’ important’ by making comments on my articles.
      Thank you.

        Anga,
        Sri Lankan Tamil percentage, out of Tamils spread all over the world is negligible. Sri Lankan terror supporting Tamils try to use the stupidity of UK politicians to promote their agenda. None Sri Lankan Tamils never supported two states or Tamil terrorism.You say ” thanks to the Sinhalese” Tamils are spread all over the world. True, Most terrorist were driven out of Sri Lanka. Want evidence? There was not a single Tamil terror attack since the Tiger terrorists were eliminated. Now, Sinhalese and Tamils live peacefully in Sri Lanka.

            I don’t want to see any more of “30 years of Tamil terrorism” in Sri Lanka. As a preventive measure and for the safety of our citizens we should have our armed forces in the north and east. Sri Lanka is still one country. Our forces could be stationed where ever they are needed.
            By the way, if one is innocent and not involved in terror activities why concerned of forces being present?

      Have you had access to The Conservative and Unionist Party Manifesto 2019 or have you had time to read it and grasp everything what is being said in it?

      If you haven’t download it and turn to page 53 from the following link:
      https://vote.conservatives.com/our-plan

      Page 53

      Excerpt from
      Promote our values

      We are proud of our peace-building
      and humanitarian efforts around
      the world, particularly in war-torn or
      divided societies, and of our record in
      helping to reduce global poverty. We
      will continue to support international
      initiatives to achieve reconciliation,
      stability and justice across the world,
      and in current or former conflict zones
      such as Cyprus, Sri Lanka and the
      Middle East, where we maintain our
      support for a two-state solution.

      This is the section which many smartass patriots believed UK was planning to divide this island into 2 states. The conservative party did not say that. Read carefully.

        “If the Tamil problems and solutions were adequately mentioned in the manifestos of our presidential candidates, the political parties in UK may not have rightly referred to a ‘Two State’ solution for Sri Lanka.”

        Firstly it is neither Tamil problem nor a Sinhala problem.
        It is a Sinhala/Buddhist problem (now it has become a Sinhala/Buddhist Fascist problem) which has been imposed on rest of the people including, Sinhalese, Buddhists, Tamils, Hindus, Christians, Muslims, …………………….

        Secondly please refer to page 53 of the Conservative and Unionist Party Manifesto 2019. Nowhere in that manifesto the Conservative Party has mentioned two state solution for Sri Lanka. The Manifesto mentions the two state solution for Middle East.

        I am not sure of your intentions, perhaps you are a secret supporter/admirer of Boris, perhaps trying to persuade Tamils to vote for him.

          Native Vedda,
          Please do not drag Vedda Eththo to a problem you have with Sinhala people, Buddhism, and Buddhist Monks by using the name ‘Native Vedda’.
          Vedda Eththo are decent people who will never use derogatory terms such as ‘Yellow Clad Thugs’, ‘Saffron Brigade’, ‘Sinhala/Buddhist noisy fascists’, ‘Sinhala Racist Bigots’ to insult Sinhala people and Buddhist monks because Vedda Eththo and Sinhalayo lived in this country for thousands of years without any problem. If you want to insult and humiliate Sinhalayo and Buddhist monks, please use some other name.

              Always amusing to read your nonsensical posts about fascism. Did they teach you that the human rights champions (US/UK) were fighting the Nazi “fascists” with racially segregated regiments? After the war, the black US soldiers went home and continued to drink from water fountains for blacks and sit at the back of the bus, while Sri Lanka elected the world’s first female prime minister.

        British policy on Sri lanka whoever comes to power is accountability, reconciliation and human rights. They have not put forward any solution, but will press on reconciliation which anyone will know that, will not take place without justice to Tamils. They will also not be against what India proposes to do to settle the matter. India has clearly spelt out the process of implementing 13th amendment in full so that there will be equality, justice, peace and dignity, which even a person with iota of intelligence will know that it will end up in two autonomous states like in India. It is now only 24 hours for the election and Conservative party has not amended their manifesto as demanded by Sinhala racists, which shows that Britishers are not prepared to dance to the whims and fancies of those idiots. The fact that Sri Lanka has been grouped with middle east and Cyprus where there are two states existing already is an indication of what is going to emerge.

          Sankaralingam,
          I thought you are a matured adult! When did the west help solve problems of other countries? How do you think they can dominate the world if we prosper and become a threat to them? These election manifestos are for them to gain power not to help you!
          As far as I remember you have been calling for this reconciliation and other garbage for years and years hoping the west will help you. How many years have passed now? What have they done for you? Do you think you will see anything during your life time?
          This is my advice, forget about the West, get a sensible group of Tamils and negotiate a reasonable solution with the government. Forget petty demands for now, go for what will help improve the economy of the north. With a robust economy you can conquer not only the north but whole of Sri Lanka.

    Boris is winning.That is the latest intelligence from Poms..

    Being in the Election Manifesto , the GTF, BTF and the Thayaga Tamils can demand that Boris implements his Election promises..
    Anaga needn’t worry about Mahesha’s Letters..

    We all know how hard Cameron Boy worked to rescue Pirahaparan and given him Asylum even when he was in opposition..

    MillBand came al the way to Hambantothottam to force President Rajapaksa to hand over Pirahaparan to him to take to London.
    That is the determination pf these Leaders in London with regards to their mateship with Tamils.

    My worry is whether Boris will crank it up more and put Economic Sanctions, followed by other drastic measure like the ones they introduced against Iran..
    If that happens our 7 Million will be doomed..

    Anaga, UK politicians don’t give a toss about two states in Sri Lanka, Cyprus or Israel, they are just after the Tamil vote, after which they will forget you. But let us acknowledge that the Tamils are highly forgettable. The UK could have a three state solution, independence for Scotland and a united Ireland. Or a four state solution, independence for Wales.

        ‘However the UK politicians have balls to test the water in referendums.’

          Chairman Paul Scully clarified The Conservative and Unionist Party Manifesto 2019 as follows:

          “To be absolutely clear, the two- state line was intended to refer only to the Israel-Palestine situation in the Middle East (as is stated policy). The commitments on Sri Lanka and Cyprus were simply about continuing existing efforts to support peace and reconciliation in divided societies.”

          If you really wanted the clarification you or one of Gota’s b***s carriers could have approached the conservative party or the High Commission. You lazy lot after sitting on your head until the cows come home then hick a big fuss about nothing. Or Gota could have sent one of his goons to white van a High Commission staff, use Sisira Mendis techniques to obtain information.

          “Unlike Sri Lanka they have delayed for 3 1/2 years in implementing the result because it wasn’t the one they wanted.”

          The state promised a North East referendum on merger in 1987 and it never arrived. However after 20 years in 2007 it was demerged without the consent of the people. The very honest Chief Justice Honorable Sarath N Silva determined its was time to demerge, so did Mahinda.
          What country!
          You have the audacity to question delays in UK implementation of referendum results but didn’t havbe the b***s to question Sarath N Silva’s decision, Champika’s anti democratic activism and Somawansa’s hypocrisy.

            “To be absolutely clear, the two-state line was intended to refer only to the Israel–Palestine situation in the Middle East. The commitment on Sri Lanka was simply about continuing efforts to support peace and reconciliation.”

    I think K. Anaga is seeing the writing on the wall, i.e. a possibility of a huge win BoJo.
    So Anaga (and the GTF, formerly known as WTF) want to have some Tamil votes for the Conservatives.
    That way some marginal influence if they can show Conservative wins in London Boroughs with significant Tamil population. Unlikely though

    England is still 80% English compared with US where whites are 65%
    I think a big win for BoJo is a essentially a English blow back against immigration and security. i.e. chavs vs liberals and immigrant Brits. The latest knifing may be factor for voting pattern.

    Much like what happened in Sri Lanka.

      sbarrkum,
      It is important to take into account the percentage of Sri Lankan Tamils out of all Tamils (from India, Malaysia, Singapore etc.) in the UK. As far as I know most non-SL Tamils do not support mode of operand-um of SL Tamils. SL Tamils in the UK are taking those politicians for a ride using names like Global Tamil Front, WTF, Tamils for Johnson etc. etc.

    British politicians do not talk about Sri Lanka because they love Demalu or concerned about the so called ‘Tamil Problem’ fabricated by Wellala racist politicians.
    At the time British ruled Sinhale, Malabar Wellala Demalu who are the descendants of slaves brought by colonial parasites licked the boots of White Man to obtain privileges.
    Now white politicians are licking the boots of Demalu in UK in order to get their votes.
    White politicians might have learnt this from the politicians of Unpatriotic National Party. During the Presidential election they licked the boots of Demalu and Muslims to get their votes and it was a grand success. Why not repeat that in UK.

    This is another racist guy who keeps on repeating the same BS about a two State solution. British may have found the request by Demalu to give them a separate State within Sinhale as ridiculous while Demalu were scattered in five pockets; Yapanaya, Madakalapuwa, Tirikunamale, Kanda Udarata and Colomba.

        K.Anaga,
        It is the propaganda machine of ‘Koti Diaspora’ that kept on spreading lies to the International Community.

        Why don’t Demalu who were given citizenship in this country by Native Sinhalayo when they were abandoned as Stateless people by colonial parasites accept Sri Lanka as their ‘Nija Bima’ instead of talking North-East as their ‘Nija Bima’ which is baseless. North-East of the country is the cradle of Sinhala Buddhist civilization destroyed by ‘Para’ Dravidian invaders. Demalu in the North were settled there illegally by Portuguese and Dutch. Demalu in Tirikunamale and Madakalapuwa are ‘Kallathonis’. Demalu in ‘Kanda Uda Rata’ were imported by British.

        If there was a Jaffna Kingdom, why the hell the surrender document was in Portuguese and Sinhala?

    Is there are a ‘National Problem’ in this country?
    Yes, this country has a ‘National Problem’ created by descendants of slaves brought to Sinhale by colonial parasites and abandoned in Sinhale making them Stateless. The ancestors of these descendants were brought to Sinhale illegally by colonial parasites. These people were accommodated by Native Sinhalayo and gave citizenship.
    Soon after British left Sinhale, these people brought from Malabar formed a political party, Illanka Tamil Arasu Katchchi to create a separate State for these Malabar Demala people by carving out a part of the country of Sinhalayo claiming that they are being discriminated by majority Sinhalayo. As a matter of fact, in 1949 when this political party was formed Sinhalayo were discriminated by Malabar Wellala Demalu who dominated the Government Service.
    Attempt to carve out a part of the country of Sinhalayo by descendants of slaves brought from Malabar to establish a Separate State called ‘Elam’ is the NATIONAL PROBLEM facing the Native Sinhalayo in this country. A Constitution that supports a ‘Unitary State’ is the solution. That may not be to the liking of ‘Para’ Malabar elite Wellala Demala politicians. Who cares! This tiny ‘Minority’ within the ‘Demala Minority’ do not represent the large majority of Demala people.

    Because of their use of terrorism, it will be much harder for Tamils to get the internationally mandated political solution proposed by the author. Just like the Germans renounced Nazis, Tamils need to renounce the LTTE, at least if you want to convince the human rights champions in Westminister. As soon as you tell them you fought a war of “liberation” with exploding waistlines, they are going to scratch you off the charity list. Of course this is good for the rest of Sri Lanka. No country will attempt another paripu drop, let alone forcible invasion carried out by India. So whether the author likes it or not, the future of Sri Lankan Tamils lies in the hands of “Sinhala-Buddhist” lawmakers. My personal advice: don’t bite the hand that feeds.

      Tamils do not have to renounce anything to get their just rights. The world may not have liked the LTTE but acknowledge that the Tamils are marginalised and discriminated and are worse than third rates in their own land. Even India , this is why they constantly keep on demanding about Tamil rights. LTTE has nothing to do with the fight for just Tamil rights and self determination. It is Sinhalese racists like you , who are trying to cunningly link the LTTE with Tamil rights. The LTTE would never have come into existence if not for the state sponsored Sinhalese racism and violence that was unleashed on the Tamils , since independence. Sinhalese racists like are the cause. It is Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists , like you , especially the ones living the good life in the west and enjoying all the rights and privileges that the west offers to newly migrated immigrants like them. You are good example. If anyone has to be compared to the Nazis , it is not the LTTE , but the Sri Lankan government , the armed forces and Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists like you , who have committed large scale structural genocide , ethnic cleansing and marginalisation of the island’s Tamils. Killed more than 300000 thousand since independence, ( 145000 in May 2009) reduced the Tamil population in the island from around 28% at the time of independence to 15.2% , within 70 years. Stolen 30% of Tamil lands and denied education , employment and language and cultural rights to the island’s Tamils , who have a far older history in the island than the Sinhalese. Even as per your government statistics the LTTE has only killed around 3300 Sinhalese and Muslim civilians and have never have raped or looted , which the Sri Lankan armed forces are famous for. You will make a good Nazi Goebbels

        Lester the bigoted Sinhala sycophant hiding under the bed in UK, why not challenge the Switzerland court order that LTTE is not a criminal organisation. Why not demonstrate outside Westminster court for sentencing the criminal Brigadier.

          Sankaralingam the fake “medical witness”… your illegal material support to the LTTE is well-documented by your writings on the Internet. Your medical license should have been revoked 20 years ago for unethical behaviour. Are you aware that doctors must uphold high standards of decency at all times? Funding suicide bombing, child conscription, human smuggling, and narcotics trafficking makes you a direct accessory to high crimes. Don’t concern yourself with the good Brigadier, bet turn yourself into Scotland Yard and confess what you have been doing all this time.

      State Terrorrism by Gotha will make it harder for Sinkalams to engage with the World Community. I dont mean the Arican Despots but the Western Countries. Even you must be gutted that no Western Country congratulated Gotha the CRIMINAL What an ominioues sign of what to expect. Can you explain to me from your tiny Brain why Western Countries chose to abstain .

      Lester the mouth piece of Sinhalese Buddhist extremism. The LTTE and the Tamils ( LTTE and non LTTE supporters) were fighting for just Tamil rights , that is their birthright. The Tamils are still fighting for this and gain this from oppressive Sinhalese regimes. Neither the LTTE or the Tamils were trying to deny or take away another peoples rights. The Nazis did this to many people in Europe and also committed large scale genocide and war crimes . Similarly the Sri Lankan government/ Sinhalese are also doing the same. Denying the island’s Tamils their birth right and just rights. Committing genocide on them and war crimes. Therefore if anyone has to be compared to the Nazis it is the Sinhalese/Sinhalese Buddhist Fascists , the Sri Lankan government and their armed forces No one else. Not the LTTE or the Tamils , that you are cunningly trying to equate. Fighting for your rights is not Nazism but denying is similar to it. Just like the Germans elected Hitler during the Nazi era the Sinhalese have elected Gotler . Both have come to power on a racist fascist ticket . The former used Fascist Aryan German racial supremacy and the later fake Aryan Sinhalese Buddhist Fascist supremacy. You are part of this propaganda machine. Using all sorts of devious methods to demonise the island’s Tamils and their fight for their just rights.

        Rohan and others,

        The Tamil homeland is in Tamil Nadu. No Tamil can deny this. There are 80 million Tamils in TN. In Sri Lanka, Tamils are a minority. They are guests who came here after illegal Chola invasions. However, Sinhala-Buddhism does not discriminate… Tamils have full rights under the Constitution. In fact, Sri Lankan Tamils have more rights in Sri Lanka than in Tamil Nadu. Because the right-wing Hindus in Delhi never gave full rights (citizenship) to Sri Lankan Tamils during the war, they were suffering in camps the whole time. Unfortunately, some Vellalar Tamils took advantage of their COOLIE privileges during Independence, and asked for a separate homeland in 1972. This homeland will never materialize; I can give you 1000 reasons as to why. Unless every Tamil on the island converts to Islam, in which case a billion Sunni Muslims will support your militant struggle, like they did Zahran. The best thing for Tamils to do now is renounce violence, give up on any idea of a homeland, and join the mainstream political process in good faith, similar to great minds like Lakshman Kadirgamar and Neelan Tiruchelvam.

      “I can suspect someone like Hoole??”

      Do you have any family dispute with Hoole?
      Take all your disputes and Hoole to your family kitchen Table, thrash it out over a Ganja/Kasippu session. I have seen it myself it works.
      By the way I am a teetotaler.

      Absolute rubbish, Edmond!
      .
      Certainly not either of the Hooles. If you are not aware, two of the brothers are famous in the context of politics – although there are other brothers. It is mandatory for you to use the first name when you refer to either. In case you ask how I know, I was a classmate of the eldest, Rajan.
      .
      Jeevan, the elections guy is a few years younger, school education entirely in Jaffna – mostly St John’s Chundikuli.
      .
      The late Charles Muthan (must have been “Ratnamuthan”) was between them, and I knew him for one year only as a schoolboy.
      .
      I’m pretty sure all of us have Vedda Bloodlines. I’m quite sure that both NV and Amarasiri are “Sinhalese” having nearly equal fluency in English and Sinhalese, and younger than me. NV may possibly have realtives who are genuine forest-dwelling relatives. Both are brilliant, and what’s more important, good people.
      .
      I wish so often who the brilliant duo are. They’d been at Peradeniya University, and seem able to place me there, since I let much of my personal information to get on to CT.

    Eagle Eye , Lester, Edmond and others!

    The LLRC appointed by Mahinda Rajapakse in the Para – 8.150 if its Report states:

    “The Commission takes the view that the root cause of the ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka lies in the failure of successive Governments to address the genuine grievances of the Tamil people.

    The country may not have been confronted with a violent separatist agenda, if the political consensus at the time of independence had been sustained and if policies had been implemented to build up and strengthen the confidence of the minorities around the system which had gained a reasonable measure of acceptance.”

    What is your opinion?

    Anyway. When did your ancestors fled South India and settled in the island Lanka? Or were they brought by the Portuguese or the Dutch?
