I could be wrong but I don’t see the Sri Lanka president with his easy-to-spot white ‘national’ — always augmented with a flashy red papal stole.

I was aghast to realize that I could no longer remember the diplomatic protocol for such visits! Given that I spent 28 years of my life in diplomatic circles I used to know all of the airport protocols — who had to meet who when they arrived.

From what I can see Charles was not met by the President because he is NOT a head-of-state. So, I think, in terms of the strict rules of International diplomacy this was ‘OK’ — and the Palace would have known this too.

Aaahh! But, rules are to be broken, especially at this level. I think it would have been COOL if the President had been there to see them off the (very understated) plane. That would have given CHOGM some positive coverage overseas. [It is possible that the President’s wife, a staunch Catholic, was not keen on welcoming this openly adulterous, previously divorced couple. This is the beauty of Sri Lanka and what it was always like. A country that is now claiming to be a Buddhist nation with a 1st Lady who is Catholic.]

Just watching the males that greeted the dapper ol’ Prince I was delighted to see that there were plenty of our trademark ‘rice and dahl‘ pot bellies proudly on display — pushing out those white shirts with pride; our way of daily proclaiming, pictures of malnourished kids be damned, we are a country of plenty when it comes to rice and dahl.

Let us please conclude our honoring of Remembrance Day 2013 with a fine rendition of ‘The Last Post’, the British way.

Thank you for all of your interest of and support for my ‘Poppy Day‘ initiative. We had 3,000 hits on the last two days on just the ‘Poppy Day‘ posts
— and over 10,000 since November 1.
So that was worth it. Thank you.
Of course we will do it again in November 2014.
