    The next commonwealth meeting will be a disaster only if that is held in Hambantota, Sri Lanka.

    There could be a few countries not turning up and the Duke of Edinburgh at 91 would not want to even travel. Prince Charles might only turn up with Camelia, if it is held in Hambantota. The biggest question is “IF”…

    Hope Rajapakses will have a good opportunity to answer the questions from the Pope, especially regarding missing Catholic priest, killed ones and the safety of the Bishop of Mannar. The War Crimes issues will linger on and will not go away as Senator Casey said in the Senate hearings for the US Ambassador to Sri Lanka. He called for an independent, international hearing/investigations.

    Quite right! If and when a Commonwealth conference takes place in Lanka in the context of CURRENT and on-going human rights violations and gross corruption under the growing Rajapakse military dictatorship it would indeed be a case of Bread and Circuses worthy of the contempt of the world – a disaster!

    By the time and IF the Commonwealth Heads meet takes place in Lanka in 2013 there will be Sri Lankans on the streets of Colombo too protesting against the Rajapakse regime and the Commonwealth show including British support for a war criminal. The problem for Rajapakse is not just the past and war crimes accusations. It is the present of Human rights violations and disappeances, corrupt crony capitalism of unbelievable proportions and spin amidst Sports Business, military business and car racing extravaganzas for the Rajapakse sons who are looting Lanka.
    The country is being looted and turned into a military dictatorship by Rajapakse and his family of goons and playboys with help from China and the Commonwealth it seems. Corruption has never been so bad in the history of post colonial Sri Lanka and institutions are being de-developed and destroyed, while the country is sinking into a debt trap.

    The Queen shook his hand with a warm smile. Tell me a person whose hand was not shook with a warm smile by this Queen?

    She learned to shake hands always with smile with everyone and she is not our lifestyle. She disinfects her hands after this ceremony

    We need a real reconcilliation independent from shaking hands.

    Its surprising Sri Lanka is still a member of the Commonwealth, very soon we will loose this status as well with the manner in which this bigotted plunderer and his family are plundering the poor masses of this country, depriving its children of milk, food, education, and all the basic facilities, and ruining its future generations at the rate of indebtedness for generations to come. Theproblems is that all the goons and plunderers are having a whale of a time at the expenses of the masses, an insurrection is on the way very soon….

    This is the neo-colonialism, trying to suppress the building nations.
    You British [Edited out] must understand that Sri Lanka is an independent country.They think still our country is their colony.
    You should pay back our wealth steal from our country, ask your queen to make an open statement regarding British atrocities done in Sri Lanka in last two decades.
    One good thing we have shipped our shit now.(LTTE rascals to Europe, Canada, USA and Australia).Enjoy our shit and gulp it.
    We do not have any problem in our beautiful Island now.

    This is the double standereds of the west.
    USA can capture and kill Osama Bin Larden even in a foreign soil even with out informing that state.
    Poor Sri Lanka has face war crime charges for the death of ruthless terrorist prabakan and his brutal gang died at the final battle.
    Weasterns please check whether you guys are wearing any clothes
    I will tell one thing those who feed the terrorist today will get the return tommorrow.Beware British.
    That is what happen to Mr Rajeev Gandhi,his mother bottle fed the LTTE to attack Sri Lanka,finally LTTE killed her son.
    We are buddist,we belive karma,if you do good you will get good.If you do bad you will suffer.
    Once you feed this LTTE rascles in your soil you can get the results very soon.

      Don Peter,

      Who told you that west is blaming SL for war crimes because of killing Praba and LTTE? poor Sri Lanka is facing war crimes because of killing 40000+ Tamil civilians (including women + children + elders in safe zoon declared by SL by heavy weapons) within a day and more than 100000+ disappeared and for extra judiciary killings and disappearance in capital Colombo. Also for attacking hospitals and justified it was a legitimate target. Politicians can fool the people like you by telling SL is facing war crime charges because of defeating LTTE. That’s not a truth. Educate your self before writing any comments. at least try to find the truth by common sense.

        Mr James
        All this is LTTE propaganda allegations.

        [Edited out]
        James don’t be a fool, we had this problem for 30 years, we Sinhalese, Tamils , Muslims suffered from the LTTE brutality. If you are a real British read more, if you are a LTTE shit no more talks with you.
        I can write LTTE brutality and harm they have done to Sri Lanka.
        They have killed thousands of civilians from all three communities. They killed lot of Tamil intellectuals; They killed thousands of innocent children. They killed priests. They bombed sacred worshiping places. LTTE used innocent people as a human shield that is why they were injured.
        By hook by crook we defeated them.
        Anyway enjoy Cooley LTTE remnants. They are really belongs to you. You are the once who bottle fed them. They will start bombing the big ben and London Bridge very soon. That is there nature.
        Your tax paid police to clean LTTE Cooley’s shit in London streets.

        NOTE – Please provide proof for your allegations re UN envoy with the reference.

        I really know about common sense about you British people and so called western people.
        Ha ha !!!!!!!!!!!
        Anyway I love see crocodile tears of LTTE sympathizers and LTTE bottle feeders (British, Norway, Canada, Australia)
        Your politicians cry for LTTE to steal their votes to come to power that is the real truth.
        If you really want to help Sri Lanka send the funds to poor Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalese in war affected area to build up their lives.
        Other hand you and your politicians wants more conflict and more unstable countries to sell the arms.
        You do not like to see peaceful conflict less countries.

    At the last Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting, a proposal by the Commonweath Secretariat for the appointment/election of a Commonwealth Human Rights Commissioner was defeated by a majority of member nations.
    This majority, which does not like monitoring of Human Rights, will be present at the 2013 meeting too, in Sri Lanka.They will dominate the discussions/proceedings.
    Hence, there will NOT be a ‘disaster’,unless there is a radical change of attitude towards Human Rights.
    The siting of the meeting at Hambantota – far from anywhere & with no proper places for the Queen and delegates to stay – may be disastrous.
    The meeting will increase our indebtedness due to the vast expenses required.
    But MR’s megalomania will prevail.
