Dr Chris Nonis interview with CNN.

The way he handles pressure while holding the ground is something extraordinary.
Good example for many of our politicians.

Worthy of listening the answers given by Dr. CN, Sri Lankan Diplomat to the CNN, are straight forward & should be set an example for our gaudy parliamentarians how to present the opinions at international stage. Dr. is remarkably good & we must be proud of him the way he handles such continuous pressure. We need such caliber personnel to other stations around the world.

Yes, Dr. Nonis is the chairman for Mackwoods group of companies. Agalawatte plantation is a subsidy of Mackwoods.

Superb!
The news made me to learn about him.

He is a very well groomed, very talented, having lots of exposure to many areas. You can use him as an example, if you need to bring up your kids.

Hats off to his parents and grandparents!!

I remember media criticized his appointment to UK as he was not career diplomat. And also his dress on the first day he met with the queen.
But now those who criticized him can understand who he is and how capable he is in diplomatic affairs.
Hats off Dr. Nonis.

He is an educated and qualified doctor no question. But i was watching the news and saw he took Prince Charles to his factory and unveiled new tea products naming them after the royal family members. In Colombo they shout telling Cameron still thinking under colonial rule. Seems like Nonis is approving that attitude.

Tory MPs banned from visiting Colombo to defend SL Govt.’s actions


A group of Tory MPs of the British ruling party were banned to travel to Colombo while the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is in progress, to defend the Sri Lanka government’s actions during the war and the alleged human rights abuses according to an article published in the London Daily Telegraph last week.

According to the newspaper, the all expenses paid trip was leaked after the Sri Lankan High Commissioner in London, Dr. Chris Nonis publicly boasted of the move at the meeting.

The article went on to say "Many have already been on luxurious trips to Sri Lanka, some accompanied by their wives or girlfriends, after which several have made parliamentary speeches urging greater "understanding" of the circumstances surrounding the civil war.

Some were due to be in Sri Lanka this week — at the regime’s expense — but have now been banned by the Conservative Party in the wake of a Daily Telegraph investigation into their relationship with the Sri Lankan government.

They had initially been granted permission to travel, but this was abruptly withdrawn at the end of last week "on the advice of the Foreign Office" after this newspaper began making detailed inquiries.

It can now be disclosed that there is concern at the highest levels of the Government about the activities of a number of MPs.

At a meeting earlier this month, Chris Nonis, Sri Lanka’s High Commissioner in London, said there were 14 people "waiting to speak if they had been given the opportunity" during a debate.

According to people at the meeting, Nonis said the country had increased its supporters in Parliament from two to 14.

He said that they had "achieved things" because they had "engaged" with Parliamentarians. One Conservative MP has told The Daily Telegraph how he has been offered "whatever he wants" from the Sri Lankan government, including luxury holidays.

In May, Aidan Burley, the MP for Cannock Chase, paid an official visit there with his girlfriend. It is understood that the couple became engaged during their stay. Mr Burley was due to travel there again this week. Another MP due to go again, James Wharton, has already made two trips to the island, funded by Sri Lanka’s regime.

During a Westminster Hall debate in January, Wharton said: "I have been to Sri Lanka a number of times, and the visits are all declared in the Register of Members’ Financial Interests.

"What worries me is how much misinformation is out there about what is happening on the ground. The tone of debate in the House too often worries me, because we focus on what we can do to punish the government of Sri Lanka."

Bob Blackman MP took his wife to Sri Lanka last year, with other parliamentarians, paid for by Sri Lanka. Another Conservative MP said that he had an "open invitation" and that the Sri Lankan government had said: "You can have whatever you want."

Burley said that it was "entirely appropriate to have visited the country on a trip that has not been funded at all by British taxpayers".

Wharton said he had "declared all declarable visits in accordance with the rules". He said he had visited the country "as a guest of the government… to ensure a balanced view on all the issues". Blackman did not respond to questions.

Conservative sources confirmed that the Whips’ Office had told MPs that they could not go to Sri Lanka.

Chairman of the British-Sri Lanka Business Council, Jayampathy Perera told the Sunday Island that it is the common knowledge that all the countries are lobbying British parliamentarians for their advantage but it was a cardinal error by the Sri Lanka High Commissioner in London Chris Nonis to publicly boast about it. 

Perera also said that it was all wrong for the High Commission to engage only with ruling party MPs neglecting the opposition Labour Party MPs. He said that Pro-LTTE Tamils living in the UK are engaging with both sets of MPs and whoever comes to power they have got the upper hand. 


He said that the Sri Lanka High Commission’s wrong tactics are clearly visible as British Prime Minister David Cameron is writing to Tamil Guardian and giving interviews to Pro-LTTE Tamil Televisions but not to Sri Lanka media.

Did Dr. CN response after this revelation or could it be another media interpretation? Whatever diplomats speak of it should be within ethical framework avoiding or minimizing the opportunity given for adverse publicity. Diaspora, in a tactical move, grab this opportunity as a hunting ground & favorable combinations of circumstances.

The Sunday Times, UK, takes David Cameron to the cleaners about his behaviour during CHOGM. This is freedom of the press. also note the dark british humour and sarcasm !


That s the president of Sri Lanka, PM, not one of your fags
by Rod Little, UK Sunday Times (Nov 17)  


I have to say, I thoroughly approve of the manner in which our prime minister has decided to deal with foreigners, especially jumped up foreigners who by rights should really still be part of our dominion and thus be doing as they`re bloody well told.

David Cameron struck precisely the right note with a man called Mahinda Rajapaksa, who is somehow running a place that I think we`d all prefer to call Ceylon. Normally when one is a guest in someone else`s country, it is incumbent upon the visitor to be polite, even deferential.

But the prime minister is aware that this does not apply to Sri Lanka, as it is now apparently called. Indeed, there is a case for saying that it does not apply to almost any of the countries qualified to host the Commonwealth heads of government meeting. I cannot imagine, for example, how one could possibly be polite upon arriving in, say, one of those islands where they worship the Duke of Edinburgh as a living deity.

It might be possible to smile pleasantly for a while, but in the end one has to let them know who is boss. This will almost certainly mean telling them how to run their country, at some point, perhaps after some hideous local dinner of sheep spleen and plantain.

So it is to David Cameron`s immense credit that he struck the right tone when addressing this Ceylonese johnny. It is the tone of a member of the Eton upper sixth addressing some errant fag who has failed to buff his shoes to the correct level of shine, through either incompetence or laziness.

It should be peremptory, it should carry within it the vapour of contempt, it should be to the recipient chidingly insulting and remind the foreigner that we once owned his ghastly satrapy and things were a damned sight better when we did, frankly.

Our prime minister could not have been more wonderfully patrician. I was transported straight back to about 1952 and, do you know, I like to think President Rajapaksa was similarly moved backwards in time. We are not a colony! he bleated after the PM had issued his statement, condemning Sri Lanka for its human rights abuses and announcing that he was going to be the first politician for a very long while to visit Jaffna, in the north of this previously troubled archipelago, to see for himself .

Ah, off you go, Dave. The reason that you can go to Jaffna at all is that this Rajapaksa-wallah, over the course of three years, eliminated the terrorist threat of the Tamil Tigers. The country is now at peace, not merely economically stable but with a rate of economic growth that would inflame the loins of George Osborne. I dare say Rajapaksa has been a ruthless authoritarian, that not everything he has accomplished would earn the approval of the European Court of Human Rights.

But for 26 years the murderous, maniacal Tamil Tigers waged war in Sri Lanka assassinations, suicide attacks, using children as hostages, planting bombs. And they were able to do so thanks to the money that flooded in largely from the UK via the Tamil diaspora in, mostly, London.

For decades we turned a blind eye to the relentless fundraising for these terrorists and the Tamil Tigers were themselves only proscribed as a terrorist organisation (rather than lauded as freedom fighters) in 2001, a year, incidentally, when we all opened our eyes to terrorism. So maybe after ticking off this gentleman for the way he runs his country, a short apology from Cameron might not go amiss.
