CAMERON: LTTE’S STOOL PIGEON?

“Nothing more completely baffles one who is full of trick and duplicity than straight forward and simple integrity in another. A knave would rather quarrel with a brother knave than with a fool, but he would rather avoid a quarrel with one honest man than with both. He can combat a fool by management and address, and he can conquer a knave by temptations. But the honest man is neither to be bamboozled nor bribed.”

– English Writer, Collector Charles Caleb Colton on political duplicity (1780 -1832)

The Mail Online ( The Internet edition of the Daily Mail newspaper of UK) has delivered the Coup de Grace and had thus exposed former British Prime Minister David Cameron’s Liberal Conservative Tamil links.
The Mail Online, in a London datelined report filed by Paul Bentley on 23 October, blew the whistle on disgraced ex-British Prime Minister David Cameron, damning the Tories into the bargain, exposing the fact that the Tories, at least under Cameron, can be made servile stool pigeons – an euphemism for proxies really – for separatist terrorist financiers who apparently prowl all over England scaring the crap out of even more servile and hapless Tamil diaspora victims collecting hessian bags full of Sterling notes by the millions, all over greater London and the counties, and fork out a percentage to Cameron’s Tories to help them stay in power.

Asked by the Mail whether such ‘donations’ are transparently accounted for, the Party said: ‘All donations to the Conservative Party are properly and transparently declared.’
We all know that ‘donations’ have the magic potential to untie the purse strings of certain types of people to finance strange non-transparent ‘projects’. That is in effect tantamount to political money laundering. Some might be inclined to call it bribery and corruption. But this columnist reluctantly draws the line there for very obvious reasons.
Analyze, if you will, the Mail statement : In the year before Cameron announced the £6.6 million to Sri Lanka, the Conservatives reported donations of £967,000 from Lycamobile and a personal donation of £100,000 from Mr. Allirajah.
Less than two months before the 2015 general election, Cameron met Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena, who promised to identify land to return to the Tamils.

Six days later, the Tories registered donations of £370,000 from Lycamobile.( Subaskaran Allirajah is the founding Chairman of Lycamobile, a firm that sells pre-paid phone cards. He grew up in Mullaitivu and is worth £160million…the 640th wealthiest individual in Britain.)
At this point it’s difficult to say whether Allirajah doles out cash of his own volition, or whether LYCAMOBILE is yet another LTTE fund raising machine. It would seem to be so when one considers further what the Mail adds, to wit:
In March 2015, Subaskaran Allirajah attended the Tory ‘black and white’ ball in Mayfair,Central London. He got the loudest cheer of the night after pledging £210,000 for a small bronze statue of Margaret Thatcher.
When the Tories made the £6.6 million announcement last November, it said the money would be spent over the next three years on ‘reconciliation, military reform and to help people who were forced from their towns and villages during the civil war’.
The Mail then adds that:

“The Mail has for more than a month been asking the Foreign Office to disclose exactly how much of the money has been spent and where it has gone, but a spokesman refused.”
So then on the one hand the Tories get ‘donations’ but THRICE THAT AMOUNT is sent to the North of Sri Lanka to meet expenses and the Tories refuse to say where it went and how much of it was spent on what.
If that’s transparency, the Tories and their ex-Premier are not using the same Oxford dictionary that we use over here in Colombo.
Lycamobile has donated a total of £2,209,712 to the Tory Party since 2011.
Some £569,300 of this has come in 2016.
The Mail then says significantly that, “even though the firm has during this time faced a police investigation after three of its workers were filmed dropping off rucksacks stuffed with cash at post offices in London.
Does Lycamobile sell mobile phones or gold nuggets that it needs to send out its employees with gunny sacks to collect payment?

Funnily, this is reminiscent of a Ku Klux Klan extortion operation doing the rounds on city streets in London.
Be that as it may, part of it finds its way into Tory coffers…and if the Tories are happy, well, it does not matter very much if morality is preached in Colombo but not practised in London.
The ultra-moralistic Cameron (in Colombo at least) has strangely questionable friends. And you can tell a man by his friends, what?”

After the end of the war in 2009, the UK ceased aid to Sri Lanka excepting for humanitarian emergencies.
But after Lycamobile started donating to the Tory Party two years later, funds were allocated to the country from the ‘conflict pool’.

In 2011, the Tories reported donations of £176,000 from Lycamobile. This rose to £250,000 in 2012. In that time, total UK aid to Sri Lanka jumped by more than two thirds to £5.5 million, with £1.3 million coming from the conflict pool.
By 2013, total aid to Sri Lanka was £10.2 million, almost £3 million more than aid to Iraq that year.
In November 2013, then-Prime Minister Cameron became the first foreign leader to visit the North of Sri Lanka since Independence in 1948.
Therein hangs a story ….OR a Tory?
YOU SCRATCH MY BACK, I SCRATCH YOURS
He called on former President Mahinda Rajapaksa (who held office at that time) to set up an independent inquiry into alleged war crimes against Tamil people. And he pledged £2.1 million over two years for a de-mining programme in three districts, including Mullaitivu.

In March 2014, Foreign Office minister Hugo Swire expressed concerns at the arrests of two human rights activists in Sri Lanka, who had been trying to secure the release of a Tamil mother and daughter.
Just 13 days later, the Tories registered donations of £105,000 from Lycamobile, followed by £15,000 three days after that.
The Calypso song about the “Grande scratch, Scratch” comes to mind.
In the year before David Cameron announced the £6.6 million to Sri Lanka, the Conservatives reported donations of £967,000 from Lycamobile and a personal donation of £100,000 from Mr. Allirajah.
In March 2015, Subaskaran Allirajah attended the Tory ‘black and white’ ball in Mayfair, Central London.
(bold)TORIES SELL THATCHER TO ALLIRAJAH(end bold)
(Start Italics) He got the loudest cheer of the night after pledging £210,000 for a small bronze statue of Margaret Thatcher. (Wonder who got him the invite for the event?) (End Italics)
Lycamobile has donated £2,209,712 to the Tories since 2011 with £569,300 in 2016.
This was before its workers were filmed dropping off rucksacks stuffed with cash at post offices in London.
Subaskaran Allirajah lives in a £3 million mansion with his wife in Chigwell, Essex.
In June, 19 people connected to Lycamobile were arrested in a raid in France midst allegations of VAT fraud and money laundering amounting to £13.4million.
Lycamobile has previously denied financial malpractice. The firm and Subaskaran Allirajah, have not responded to questions. The Mail Online reported that Foreign aid from England to Sri Lanka had been increased after Allirajah oversaw donations of more than 1 million British pounds (£) to the Tories.
It said Cameron had announced last November that £6.6 million was being set aside for Sri Lanka over three years, including help for Tamils “forced from their homes during the civil war.”
In the year before the announcement, the Tories got more than £1million from Subaskaran Allirajah and his controversial telecommunication firm Lycamobile.
What has happened to the UK aid money since it went to Mullaitivu?
Subaskaran Allirajah is the founding Chairman of Lycamobile, a firm that sells pre-paid phone cards. He grew up in Mullaitivu and is worth £160million…the 640th wealthiest individual in Britain.
Allirajah very recently faced scrutiny over alleged tax fraud and money laundering.
