British based Tamil Tigers have been asked to jump ship as the British labour Party in which they have received protection is sinking very badly and look for greener pastures in other political parties.

The semi-official Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) organ, the Tamil Guardian, in an editorial said, “..Tamils for many years thought to have a natural sympathy with the Labour Party.” However the , the organ, said, now with changing times, “Tamil activists should work with all parties “¦”¦.This will ensure that whichever party wins the general election the Tamil issue can be taken forward.” The editorial came under the Tamil Guardian’s UK column.

While the LTTE organ cautioned its readers to jump from the sinking ship like rats, British opinion polls revealed Britain’s ruling labour party with such stalwarts like Prime Minister Gordon Brown and Foreign Secretary David Miliband, who visited Sri Lanka last May to save the life of LTTE leader Velupillai Prabhakaran in vain, is heading for an unprecedented historic defeat in the British parliamentary history.

According to a YouGov poll conducted last week and published in the Sun newspaper the ruling Labour Party is placed at 23 percent while opposition Conservative Party at 49 percent.

Commenting on the poll results America’s ABC news said many of those defections came from Brown’s own party. The news service said it is Labour’s worst rating since opinion polls were first published in the 1930s.

The ABC said, If new elections were held today it would not just be a landslide; it would be a tsunami that would wash the once-popular and confident prime minister into the treetops. It is a serious reversal of fortunes from eight months ago, when Labour support stood at 43 percent and the Conservatives were at 32 percent.
