Meanwhile, in Sri Lanka...


The former army chief who blew the whistle on the war crimes committed in the final stage of the country's civil war has just been sentenced to another 3 years in prison. Seeing as the evidence that atrocities were committed is overwhelming, we should remind ourselves that it wasn't so long back that our former defence secretary (with Adam Werritty in tow, naturally) was visiting the country to deliver a speech on the behalf of our government, with nary a word of criticism contained within it. Not content with that, he also met up with the Sri Lankan president in a London hotel in what was described as a "private meeting". As always, it's nice to see just which brutal foreign rulers our politicians deem to be acceptable company, if only so we can hold it against them later when we start bombing their countries.
