    [Edited out by CT Since it is a wrong accusation – Read //Tamil hunger striker wins damages over burger claims// A Tamil refugee hunger striker has accepted £77,500 in damages over newspaper reports he secretly ate burgers during his protest.http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-london-10802491%5D

    Tamil civilians are in an unfortunate place today and getting a bad name again as they flee the northeast military occupation and land grabbing of Basil and GOta the Rajapassa Goon – just check out the land grab right along the east coast by the Rajapasse hotel cronies and the armed forces.
    Tamils of post war Lanka are caught between the bloody LTTE left-over scum who want to control a dying organization and its funds while engaged in a human-trafficking business in the diaspora, and the equally bloody Rajapakse military dictatorship in Sri Lanka today!

    Gobi is wasting his time in London.

    As a convicted drink driver, dope dealer and bearer of ‘offensive weapons’ the perfect place for him is in the Sri Lankan parliament, on the UFPA ticket, sitting next to Merv the Perv.
