Uma Will Be A First-Class MP Standing Up For The People Of Harrow East – Gareth Thomas

Harrow campaigner Uma Kumaran has been selected as Labour’s candidate in the 2015 election to choose the next MP for Harrow East.

“My parents fled to Britain over 30 years ago in the midst of civil war in Sri Lanka and they worked hard to rebuild their lives and raise a family in Harrow.” she told Colombo Telegraph.

Gareth Thomas, Labour’s MP for Harrow West and the former Minister of State at the Department for International Development said; “Uma will be a first-class MP standing up for the people of Harrow East.  It will be a pleasure to campaign with her to reverse the cuts in police numbers in Harrow, for a better Northwick Park and to get more investment in our schools. Together we will be highlighting the pressure on the living standards of too many Harrow families as a result of unchecked energy bills and the squeeze on wages since David Cameron took office.”

      I wish her good luck too.

      Unfortunately, she will have to toe Ed Milliband’s corrupted Labour Party line on Sri Lanka. Whether she likes it or not.

      Time will show.

        “Ed Milliband’s corrupted Labour Party line on Sri Lanka.”

        Could you elaborate on this specific charge.

          Native,

          UK Labour’s position on Sri Lanka is indeed courrupt. Fact!

          It is the result of very long, very strong, cunning & relentless lobbying by Tamil racist groups in the UK & elsewhere.

          We know how Israel came about. How it popped up on the World Map. Erected on stolen land from defenceless & impoverished people. The Palestinians. Master Plan was drawn up in committee rooms of UK Parlaiment. Under watchful eyes of lobbyists of UK based Zionists.

          I admire racists among Tamils, involved in the Ealam project, for their strategic, long term thinking.

          Sri Lankans better take what is going on in UK based political parties a lot more seriously. If they wish to keep Sri Lanka’s unitary status intact.

          If you are dreaming of an ethnically purified, Tamils only Ealam carved out of Sri Lanka, UK is the right place to get organized in. Even though it is a diminishing power, Great Britain is still Great!

          UK Labour’s Sri Lanka policy is driven by corrupted electoral compulsions. Not by a genuine need to build bridges & heal Sri Lanka’s deep wounds.

          Were you napping in a cave Native Vedda, when David Milliband was stripped naked by Wikileaks? At the British High Commission in Colombo.

          Cheers!

          PS: True, highly corrupt, brutal Sri Lankan regimes have been compounding the problem. To the delight & advantage of racist Ealamsitas since 1948.

            Ben you utterly wrong about Israelis.
            It is/ Was not popped up on the World Map. Erected on stolen land as you says.
            It is Said and Got history Facts that Isreal was there before Christ era and Ottoman empires ,
            that they were their before Palestinians and not like Tamils or Earopeans of Sri lanka.

              Correct!

              There were Jews there 2-3000 years ago.

              So, why not just pop back in from Russia, Poland & New York to kick out the people who live there now. Humiliate them and build settlements.

              And create conditions for the 3rd World War in the process.

              Lovely!

              The Israel of then vanished loon ago and the Israel of now is not the same as the Israel of ancient times.

              Tamils were in SL before Sinhala founder Vijaya invaded 2500 years ago because South India already had established Dravidian culture at that point and SL is just a short boat trip from Tamil Nadu Southern tip.

              Sinhalese can’t claim exclusiveness and uniqueness to SL because the native people are the Veddah; who incidentally were genocided by Vijaya and Co.

                PalmSquirrell,

                Your life expectancy is around 75, I presume. If you live in SL.

                Who has the time to worry about what happened 2500 years ago? Why? Who cares who came first to Sri Lanka 2500 years ago.

                Can we have a dignified, good life? The few decades we are alive. Can we leave a better Sri Lanka, than we found it for our children? Nothing else matters.

                You will be food for worms sooner than you think, my friend. Whether you Sinhalese or Tamil. Death comes knocking.

                Enjoy your life. Live in harmony with fellow human beings.

                Forget what happened 2500 years ago. Live your life now!

                Cheers!

            Poor lady, she’ll have to deal with a party that seeks the vote of terrorist sympathisers AND corrupt labour/trade union officials. Larga vida democracy!! After all it was only 700,000 pounds that were donated to the party during the Falkirk scandal right? Corruption and the British Labour Party are like two peas in a pod.

            I am actually dreaming of an ethnically cleansed Veddha only Veddha land in the whole of Sri Lanka.

            When can you arrange your people and your Tamil brethren leave my island?

              Your dream is even more elusive than the Ealam pipe dream.

              Sri Lanka will be strongly backed by USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand etc. All powerful western nations.

              All utterly guilty of treating their native populations like animals.

              Cheers!

        Nobody will help you to get your so called “ancestral land” from Tamils and Sinhalese.
        because, think, this is a life, like a temporary bus shelter.

        If you cant coexists with others Races,
        You have to Jump to GOLUMUHUDA with Jarapassa and GOONs clan.
        by the way,
        If you are Jumping to Golumuhuda?, Don’t forget to take with you that kudu dimiya, Kudu merviya, Hothambaya, and the other Jarapassa Fleas like Makka Silva, KASumnawatie, Jin soththy, malinda, Jarajapal, like.

      I don’t agree with you.

      VP would not have made a good MP for Harrow.

      However he would have made good defence minister/secretary for MR. MR could blame him for everything wrong in this island.

      Fathima Fukushima,

      If you can, try really hard and show some decency.

      A young British Sri Lankan woman is about to break through to national level politics in an important country in the world. There is no doubt she is an extra ordianry talent.

      There are justifiable reasons to admire her. Even if you disagree with her politically.

      Cheers!

          As long as Sri Lanka is run by Sinhala Nationalists who feel the island is rightfully theirs, Tamils will yearn for a separate or semi-autonomus province.

          The civil war started because Sri Lankan governments past and present have all been Sinhala supremacist, wanting to kill or drive out Tamils.

    The comments by some illiterate low lives in these columns show the lack of decency and humanity in them. Here is a young lady of Srilankan Tamil origin who had been selected to contest to the parliamentary seat in UK. Instead of congratulating and wishing her well people are going crazy condemning her and vilifying her. Most of these morons do not even know what her views are on the Srilankan issue. She is opposed purely because she was born to Srilankan Tamil Parents. You can imagine the plights of Tamils in Srilanka in the hands of these idiots who have the power to rule over them. These comments are made even before she is elected. Woe behold what her fate would be in the hands of these low lives if she is elected as an MP

    Good luck to this young lady. I hope she is successful in her efforts to enter Parliament. And I hope that if and when she is elected an MP she will remember that her first and primary duty is to her constituents – the people in her electorate whose interests she has been elected to serve. She has to remember she has been elected because she is a British citizen not because of her ethnic background and be mindful of that always, and eschew the temptation to try to be a spokesperson in parliament for the interests of her Sri Lankan compatriots, be they Tamils or Sinhalese. She seems to be a smart young woman and I expect if she is in fact elected an MP that she will be conscious that her obligations are to the people of East Harrow, not to the Tamil Diaspora or the country of her fathers.
