Not so. The politics has changed

When my boss in Sri Lanka left to join the opposition party we thought he had signed his death warrant as he is Church of England. He is now Minister of Finance and a truly tremendous man.

This has come so out of the blue. Canít see it being LTTE related or Muslims.

We know one lady injured by shrapnel, just relieved there are no others.

Wee were there for two weeks last May - one week in Habarana in the middle, the second at Trincomilee on the east coast.
There is still a difference between north and south and it was suggested we didn't go north to the Tamil area.
I have no doubt it was the Tamils causing trouble again with religion creating differences. More christian in the south.

Stay central/south for the tea growing hills and the south coast for beach holiday.

You have no doubt itís Tamils? Why is that?

The Jaffna peninsula is very beautiful and developing quickly. It also didnít get bombed. So why stay South?

Surprise surprise, Maple syrup had connects to Sri Lanka. You should never have left to run Brunei mate, this would never have happened.

And as for "not so"?

300 dead says very, very different.

The Sri Lankan government seem to think that it may have been Islamist extremists but no doubt we'll all find out soon enough

Can't see it being Muslims? Nah, definitely not. A mass killing by suicide bomb just isn't logically going to have anything to do with the religion of peace. Nope.
Definitely not.

Hang on...
