Labour’s Sri Lanka Amnesia

Shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander says it was a ‘lack of judgement’, and Ed has written in the Tamil Guardian complaining that Cameron will not boycott this week’s Commonwealth summit in Sri Lanka, over the country’s human rights record after two decades of civil war. There is a coordinated attack by the opposition:

The former senior adviser on foreign affairs to Gordon Brown turned Miliband right-hand-man seems to have forgotten this one:

“UK Prime Minister Gordon Brown greets President Mahinda Rajapaksa of Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama at Downing Street, London, ahead of the Commonwealth mini summit”

It’s almost as if Labour want to forget the past. Guido will have more on this subject later…

    What we need is an Ed Miliband

      Sri Lanka is none of our business.

        I expect Gordon Brown’s praising of Lehman Brothers for its ‘financial inventiveness’ ten days before it went bust is no longer on any Labour party website either.

          The EU is croques (de merde) monsieur says:

          “I would like to pay tribute to the contribution you and your company make to the prosperity of Britain,” Mr Brown told Lehman bankers in London’s Canary Wharf . “During its 150 year history, Lehman Brothers has always been an innovator, financing new ideas and inventions before many others even began to realize their potential.”

      john in cheshire says:

      What we need is to continually keep beating the communists/socialists with their own history. These creatures should never be allowed to forget what they have done over the past hundred, or even two hundred years; and the countless people who have died for their doctrine of hatred, lies and deceit.

    Sir WW says:

    Sri Lanka had to put down a determined, well-led, well-financed, ruthlessly violent rebellion. This could not be done in a nice, happy-clappy way. Cut them some slack.

    We can’t even manage a bunch of towelheads with home-made explosives.

      Simon B says:

      Exactly. Who cares how many terrorists/rebels died? They were terrorists and sometimes you have to take out civvies to take out a greater threat. Making an omelette and all that.

      I wish we could do the same here with our muzz’ies and all our lefties.

          Making omelettes is against the law now? That’s not in my Halsbury’s. I thought lefties were all awkward vegetarians and that’s all they’d eat apart from cauliflower cheese.

    the register has already covered the non-news of the bot deletions…and that Labour have deleted their past too

    Labour in hypocrisy and lies shocker

      ATOS has miraculously healed many more people than Our Lord. People who had hardly been able to get out of bed suddenly find themselves fit enough to walk as far as the benefits office.

    Labotomy says:

    Dog days: the struggle to survive for street dogs and their homeless owners – video

    Another piece of left wing journalistic shit from the Guardian

    Hearthounds is not a charity as stated by the Guardian – “The struggle to establish Hearthounds, a charity in Leeds that set out to help homeless people’s dogs, but ended up helping the owners”

    Hearthounds was not set up by the bint in the video

    Hearthounds was set up to support the dogs, whether you agree with this is another matter, I personally don’t mind contributing a bit for hungry dogs

    This one needs checking out, it stinks a bit


  10. 16
    The BBC always reports, "The Government has...Labour said..." says:

    Just heard that sanctimonious scottish minger Wee Dougie moaning on WatO about this. He is a full weighter hypocrtie FFS!


  11. 17
    Peace Out says:

    After many decades Sri Lanka is now at peace what’s the fucking problem?
    The fact the government didn’t negotiate a surrender like we did in Northern Ireland perhaps.


    • 19
      The Chosen Ones says:

      The Sri Lankan’s have now become de facto national socialists. That means they are now the enemy.


    • 28

      They had the temerity to actually win a war against thousands of murderous communist thugs, they should not be criticised, but congratulated and seen as an example of what can and ought to be done in the face of such threats .

    Since when has Dave had the power to “choose someone else”? I suspect that is not in his gift – or even Queenie’s come to that.

    Petrol station credit card fraud has dropped since the Ceylonese government won. I suppose it’s safe for all those Tamil asylum seekers to go back home to India now.

    Dangerous Brian says:

    The hypocrisy of both the “left” and the so called “right” knows no bounds.
    Teflon Tony called it the “real poiitik” when he was hugging Gadafi and Assad was his new best mate.
    What he actually meant, along with the whole bunch of professional shysters now purporting to govern us by proxy from the EUSSR, was, if you can get away with it at the time and you can trouser a few grand along the way whats to worry about.
    There will always be another highly paid job, and as long as you are an MP you dont need to turn up anyway, so second dibs are great as well.
    They should all just f**k off


  16. 35

    All the dishonourable MP geezers treat the ignoble House like it was an Alzheimer-Free-Zone.


  17. 36
    Mike Hunt says:

    Labour’s ___________ amnesia (replace blanks with just about anything they screwed up 1997-2010)

    No wonder they have wiped their web site too.


  18. 37
    Cynic says:

    A shocking picture. Here is a man that all but destroyed his country in the ruthless pursuit of a single minded goal. A man who sought total control of the media to suppress the truth, who forced millions from their homes and into destitution and whose polices led to mass migration and people with no food forced to rely on handouts for the very basics of survival

    And we make the poor President of Sri Lanka shake his hand

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
