    It will be of great value if this article can give some idea to the reader, why should in the first place Sri Lankan Government wanted the official residence of the high commissioner be relocated?

    What is wrong in allowing dual nationality for Sri Lankans? Of course under the present ethnic problem , and LTTE agenda for a separate state ,it will affect badly for the Tamils of Sri Lanka, but expatriates bring revenue to the country.

    Indian diplomatic mission is much bigger than the Sri Lankan. So renting accommodation is better than buying. Any way I do not think that Indian Government do not have their own real estates for their high level diplomats in UK. Here we are talking about the Sri Lankan high commissioner`s residence and not all the other staff of the high commission.

    When Ranil was PM, the USA ambassador Devinda Subasinghe (by the way he was Ranil`s man, and even didn`t understand Sinhalese) did same kind of stupid thing. He left the official residence empty paying thousands of dollars as the rent, and he lived in another one again paid by the GOSL. The reason for not living in the first one is it`s too old and can`t repair. But according to the sources of the SL high commission, it`s just a minor repair, and he didn`t want to live in that because it was little old fashion.

    I don`t know what happened to that after Bernard Gunatillake`s appointment, but I heard he is living in the official residence.

    Both Chandrika and Ranil don`t have any interest on saving money for the country, they just want to live their lives and survive with the time till they die, It`s really unfortunate to lose great people like Kadir, as well as seeing people like Anura and CBK alive...

    if you know the story this is like, `Budu wenna ona aya Kurusiye ana gahala, Kurusiye ana gahanna ona aya Budu wela`
