    Right. The cat is finally out of the bag.

    Didn’t this Robert Evans guy visit Sri Lanka sommetime ago? As a member of the European Union Parliament. On an “impartial” fact finding mission to Sri Lanka.

    Upon his returnn to Brussels he issued a damning statement on Sri Lanka.

    Now Sri Lanka knows what we claimed at that time was correct. Robert Evans has been singing for LTTE overseas all along.

    Thank you “TGTE” for confirming to all Sri Lankans that Robert Evans is a hardcore LTTE henchman inn the corridors of Western power.

    Please do not send him to Sri Lanka on any “impartial” fact finding missions anymore.

      Do you aspire to being the President of “The Society to Accuse All Those Disagreeing With Your Views of being a Tamil Tiger.” Considering to whom you obviously owe your allegiance, you appear to be eminently suited to the position!

          Most of the countries in the world are free. People are people they don’t have stripes. Sri Lanka had a Fox who got caught you remember. Did he had any stripes.

    The political solution in terms of the 13th amendment was implemented over 25 yrs ago and we have a provincial council system to take into account provincial power sharing. This is functioning well. This is it no more political solutions are forthcoming. Sri Lanka is not going to hand over north east comprising over 28% of its land area and over 66% of it’s coastline to less than 12% of it’s population i.e. northern Sri Lankan tamils at the expense of 88% of the rest of the population. It is never,ever,ever,ever,ever,ever going to happen. The coastal resources are an integral part of any island nation and crucial to it’s existence. The coastal resources, the 200 nautical mile exclusive economic zone is absolutely critical for any island nation. Therefore over 66% of its coastal resources would not be handed over to less than 12% of it’s population at the expense of the rest of the 88% of the population. It would be unfair and unjust and unacceptable, idiotic and stupid to say the least.

    If the sri Lankan tamils were the majority will they hand over over 28% land area and over 66% coastline to less than 12% Sinhalese? No of course not they won’t be that stupid I am sure and they will laugh at such absurd demands. Honestly will they do this? Of course not they will never do this. So why is the TNA demanding such an unfair demand without being just and fair to their fellow citizens who need a fair treatment by any means.

    These jokers Rudrakumaran & Co have become the laughing stock of not just the Sri Lankans but the whole world. They have a lower house and an upper house for a state that does not physically exist anywhere in this world. What a joke?

    Rudrakumaran & Co may well go and join their beloved leader in the hell, perhaps by committing mass suicide swallowing cyanide capsules, and set up the Eelam Trans National Government in the hell with their supreme leader as the Executive President.

    Friends, please do not treat the TGTE lightly. The influence they may eventually generate globally will be far more strident than their present limited reach suggests. The African National Congress in Exile too was under-estimated during and before the 1980a and ended up, with no comparable resources to the juggernaut Apartheid White S. Africa, as the sovereign government of South Africa. PLO started along the same lines and remained without clout for decades. They are today recognised by the UN and most of the world. Our President subscribes to this growing view on the PLO as well.

    What the world has allowed the Rajapakses and GoSL is time to settle its own internal affairs – peacefully, legally and in terms of natural justice. The region and the world have made up their mind Tamils in the country have been wronged far too long and need to be accommodated without further delay – a legal and moral imperative. That is the language of the UN/Geneve meeting last year that comes up for review in March. Ignoring the latter, after providing documentation assuring to abide by the consensus that emerged from the proceedings, will be at the peril of the regime. The day of reckoning is fastly approaching.
    The regime has to free itself from the pernicious clutches of the JHU, BBS and other extremists which it privately claims “are holding the country to ransom”

    TGTE appears to be the first government in exile that has appointed Senators on contract. Poor fellows in this TGTE are volunteering to serve in the government while wasting their “hard-earned” money on international jokers.
