      Indeed H.R>H> Queen Elizabeth was among the first to boycott Mahinda Rajapakse show and his crowning as Head of the Commonwealth of Clowns!

      The lady know what she is doing – Cameron obviously does not!

      Once Rajapassa takes over as Head, its curtains for the British colonial Commonwealth Circus!

      Jim nutty,

      This is the way the criminals, war criminals and HR violators respond when they are confronted by the civilized people in the civilized world. For the uncivilized barbarians in rogue regimes like Rajapakshas and Jimfuckers all value systems have zero meaning. Jumnutty, the cockroaches like you only know to infest the dustbins in the Madamulana backyard.

      Does Queen know that 1.2 million innocent Iraqis killed by UK/US forces, in search of Weapons of Mass destruction ,they never found ?

      Aren’t those killings of Muslims crimes against humanity ??

      Princess Diana was killed on the instructions of Royal Palace, because her boyfriend was a Muslim ?

        ALL those advocates of Human Rights are HUMBUGS.. they conveniently forget about IRAQ,Afghanistan, Pakistan now Libya Syria and other countries. Why selected use of pressure? Paid by DIE ASS PODA ? These people make it a point to cook up stories, so they can go to warmer clime and enjoy the weather… while GENEROUS donors to NGO’s are shown a false picture..

        out of every dollar given. 40 % or more is used as administrative cost… ya right…

        For once I agree with John.

        ‘Aren’t those killings of Muslims crimes against humanity’

        Muslims or No Muslims, any killing is crime angainst humanity.
        Let it be Muslim terror or Jrewish Terror or Christian terror.
        I dont find any difference between Taleban, Shiv Sena and BBS.
        They are not promoting their faith but spreading hatred in a fatal way. They all are insulting their faith with or without their knowledge funded by the some Western eliments.

        A week or so after Princess Diana’s death an ex Boss of mine invited me for coffee. While chatting he abruptly asked me what was my opinion of Diana’s accident. I said I doubt that it was an accident.
        Then he said ‘Yes’, and went ahead to say what exactly John said above in his last Sentence.

        in other words because regimes have been killing innocent civilians from the beginning of time the poor Tamils are expected to grin and bear it,,, right ?

        I can tell you what to do with your logic John, but I will restrain myself to asking you whether you’d be saying the same idiotic nonsense if the LTRE was buggering you , your wife and kids from behind you and the army was shooting you merely for being too scared to run away from the LTTE MERELY BECAUSE IT FELT THAT IT WAS THE ONLY WAY TO EXPOSE THE LTTE TO ITS ATTACKS AND DESTROY IT.

        NO ONE’S WORRIED ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED ELSEWHERE. THIS HAPPENED TO INNOCENT PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTRY, PEOPLE AMONG WHOM WERE MANY OF OUR FRIENDS [ OF COURSE, YOU NEVER LIVED UP NORTH, DID YOU ?] AND THOUGH THE MAJORITY SLAUGHTERED WERE STRANGERS, THE VICIOUS MANNER OF THEIR MASS SLAUGHTER IS AN AFFRONT TO ALL OF HUMANITY.
        LET THE AMERICANS, BRITISH AND WHOEVER AGITATE FOR ACTION AGAINST THEIR GOVERNMENTS FOR ANY ATROCITIES COMMITTED BY THEM. WHO’S STANDING IN THE WAY?

        I’M ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT WHAT HAPPENED HERE. THE PROVEN CRIMES COMMITTED BY THE LTTE..WELL, THEIR MEDIA ARM OWNED UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL CIVILIAN ATTACK, THEY EVEN WARNED OF MORE IF THEIR DEMANDS WERE NOT MET. IT’S ALL CHRONICLED IN EVERY DAMNED NEWSPAPER IN THIS COUNTRY AND ABROAD, AND IN HUNDREDS OF TV VIDEOS IN OUR TELEVISION STUDIOS.

        WE’RE TALKING OF STATE ACCOUNTABILITY HERE.

        INSTEAD OF STUPIDLY DENYING THE EVIDENCE DISHED UP BY CHANNEL 4 WHY DOESN’T THE GOVERNMENT WORK IN TANDEM WITH IT,USE THAT MATERIAL FOR A PROBE AND BRING THE CULPRITS TO BOOK ?

        SIMPLE ISN’T IT ?

        SO THEN, WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE GOVERNMENT TRYING SO DESPERATELY TO DENY WHAT HAS BEEN PATENTLY PROVED TO BE WAR CRIMES AND CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY? IS IT PERHAPS BECAUSE A PROBE WILL END UP WITH THE ACCUSED SOLDIERS FINGERING THE PEOPLE ON WHOSE ORDERS THEY DID WHAT THEY DID?

        FAR AS I AM CONCERNED I AM NOT EVEN TALKING ABOUT ANY EXTRA-JUDICIAL KILLINGS OF THE SO-CALLED ” WHITE FLAG” CASES.

        I AM TALKING OF THE DEAD MEN AND WOMEN IN THE UN STATISTICS.. AND TO HELL WHETHER IT WAS 4K OR 40 K OR EBEN OVER 100K.

        WAS..OR WASN’T THERE.. SUCH WANTON KILLINGS ?

        WHAT THE HECK IS THE GOVERNMENT GRIPING ABOUT AND WHY ARE YOU PISING IN YOURPANTS TRYING TO DEFEND THE INDEFENSIBLE ?

        THE ANSWER ? THEY’RE ALL TOO SCARED OF WHAT WILL SURFACE IN SUCH AN INQUIRTY.

        RIGHT BOYO ? SO HOW’S ABOUT DOING YOU-KNOW-WHAT WITH YOUR STRANGE BRAND OF LOGIC?

          WINSTON DE VALLIERE

          Why the hell war crimes are brought against one country, because it’s tiny ??

          What morality US/UK West have in doing so, whilst keeping millions of skeletons in their own cupboard ??

          Rich & powerful have license to kill hundred times more & ask other smaller countries accountability ??

          What about continuing killings by Israel , from 1967 todate, courtesy USA ? how many UN security council resolutions were vetoed by USA??

          What about 05 million Palestinians chased out from Jerusalem ??

          How many thousands innocent were killed by LTTE ??
          thousands hacked to death in border villages in their sleeping mat ? Fresh born babies/ children/ pregnant mothers ??
          Chanel 4 didn’t prepare videos of those ??

          378 suicide explosions by LTTE in sri lanka out of some 425 in the whole world up to May 19 2009??

          Sinahalese suffered death & destruction
          Why don’t you or any body US/UK/UN etc. talk about those ??

          There should be one rule & fairness.

      You can believe anything you want if it makes you happy.For the defeated Tamils there’s not much of a choice,but keep on believing.In the meantime king Rajapakse is having the time of his life!

    I think this is unfounded – the old bat is pushing 90 and can’t get around as much. Probably wants to stay and home and figure out how she can get Parliament to give her even more money than she earns from the taxpayers than she does already. Someone has to foot the bill for her batshit sons.

    Only abt 30 heads of state have joined CHOGM. Many had sent deputies. However, the Queen had been medically advised not to travel far due to her health. She didn’t boycott.

    What happened to Mrs. B. after the 1976 NAM summit? Worth the wait and see. Did you watch His excellency’s speech today, carefully? All is not well with his health? Problems to come? Not likely to complete his 2 yrs of tenure as head of CHOGM.

    “Queen Elizabeth is staying home with the corgis instead of attending CHOGM in Sri Lanka. By doing so, she makes clear that the Commonwealth should not tolerate criminals, writes Trevor Grant”

    Ha..ha! The writer is an idiot or is he just trying to fool us?

    The Queen Politely Joined The CHOGM Boycott? What utter rubbish!

    When will she join a boycott of Saudi Arabia? Was not the dictator of Saudi Arabia driven in a Royal Horse Carriage through streets of London like a hero?

    Did not she warmly welcome George Bush to Buckingham Palace? Did not he sleep over in the same room as Nelson Mandela? Was not he Knighted by the Queen?

    Oh..please! Give us a break!

      What bull is that?? It seems you have just eaten a Chinese dog!

      Shrub, simply wanted to be king but alas

      he went with his tail between his legs and refused

      Jose Maria the Marshall-ship of Texas.

      Just one reading of this dynasty “the inner temple” Lincolns Inn will give you an idea of what it’s made of. Land built on Tragedy like Shakespearean opera.

      Bond is a thriller but sometimes!

      Take a break walkie-talkie!

    Too bad for Trevor Grant. After all Sri Lanka is in the company of UK, which has slaughtered millions of Africans, Asians, First Americans, Australian aboriginals. Trevor Grant does not seem to care about killings by the white commonwealth but cares for Tamils only, show how big a wallet The LTTE rump have in their possession.

      By drawing parallel are you saying that Sri Lanka has not killed enough? So more killing to come then you can then match the killings of the West thought they were ancient!

    Are you serious? Have you run out of news stories to write about? What next? Are you going to excuse Nelson Mandela of quietly boycotting Sri Lanka and every other country since he doesn’t go overseas now?
    If that’s what she feels, then let her say it without cheap journalistic speculation. I don’t this article belongs on the CT website unless it has turned into some tabloid news page.

    The master wrote the rules of the club – in his own unique language. The old servants were allowed to join the club but had a different take on the rules – something was lost in traslation.
    What a farce!

    What a twit, to suggest that the Queen decided to stay away and was so heartless as to send her son to cop it! I don’t believe Her Majesty will have been so insensitive. Let’s be realistic. She is 87 and had already signaled she’d be cutting down on long distance travel before the CHOGM 2013 was arranged.
