This is the same obviously misguided and indubitably uneducated female who has been ranting about Sri Lanka leaving THE Commonwealth. I will not mention her blackened name because the last thing I want is to give this ‘disgrace’ any more publicity.
I have NEVER been so glad and relieved that I have not been Sri Lankan for 30 years! IF I believed in a god, I would thank that god that I am not Sri Lankan.
Churchill, like so many other OUTSTANDING world leaders, and U.S. Lincoln and Grant also come to mind, did solemnly believe in “in peace, magnanimity”. It is even possible that dear Winston borrowed that from Lincoln.
It is no great secret that in my personal pantheon of gods Dear Winston is the Babylonian ‘Anu’!
(You will have to look that up if your Babylonian mythology is rusty).
Of course, in always 20/20 hindsight, Winston did make some huge blunders in WW I and WW II. But so did Lincoln. That does not make either a bad person. They were doing their best per what they had and what they were told was best.
I really despair. Such arrant nonsense make Sri Lankans look bad.
I am also NOT happy that Cameron mentioned Winston and the Sri Lankan president in the same sentence. Yes, they were both victorious but Sri Lanka’s 30-year civil war, despite how bad it was, was NOT WW II! Other than that the only similarity that I see in the two are that they are both corpulent — albeit with Winston, as ever, doing it in style.
This to me was the most inglorious moment, so far, re. CHOGM 2013.
