I wrote to you on August 30, 2009 with reference to your broadcast of the video clip of the shooting deaths of unarmed people, who you described as Tamils, allegedly shot by the Sri Lankan soldiers wearing distinctive Sri Lankan army uniforms.

I said, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-But if this video clip is proved to be doctored, dubbed or staged, then Channel 4 deserves to be taken to task in a Court of Law for libel and defamation by the Sri Lankan Government, no question.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  If that happens I want to see that Channel 4 been whipped to attention and sucker-punched severely and ordered to apologize and fork out a Himalayan amount of money to the Sri Lankan Government for defamation and that you guys will be buried for good never to be a sick, a vulgar, a pathetic idiot-trouble maker in the world of audio-visual communicators.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

I also said in that letter, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Here is something disturbing for you to be concerned about.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  My Crystal Ball readings on Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s ethnic issue since 1983 have been consistently right.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Let me brag to say that my forecasts have never been wrong.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And hereƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s my reading on Channel 4 for your benefit.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-I see a cloud of cold microscopic ice-pellets hovering over the Channel 4 personnel as they walk on thin ice having the foolishness and the audacity in showing the video-clip on the alleged Sri Lankan soldiers shooting at Tamils.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The ice is cracking a head of them and they do not know.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  HmmmƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.and soon the frozen iced floor will part asunder and they will fall through the crack feeling the chill of their stupidity.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I hope they will have enough money to extricate themselves from the chill as they will be slammed with an immense libel suit.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And for the AI and HRW personnel who had piggy-backed on this Channel 4ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s stupid exercise thinking that they could holler at the Sri Lankan Government, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-We Finally Gotch-Ya, Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ too will be feeling the chilly Arctic wind.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They too will freeze their butts for their stupidity and only have them thawed if they are willing to act with some integrity and intelligence hence forth.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Or else, they will find me wagging my five fingers atop my nose and telling them, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Na-nana-na-na, when will you guys grow up!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

Seeing that Channel 4 has done nothing to prove themselves right in airing that video-clip and providing the burden of proof, and the Sri Lankan GovernmentƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s forensic analysis by experts showing that video clip was a fraud and is going to eat at your mindset for going after the Sri Lankan Government with a vengeance for having kicked your reporters from Sri Lanka, you know as much as I do, that you guys have painted yourself into a corner, and you have no way to get out.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I can see from far away in Canada that the Arctic winds ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ are blowing ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and you ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ are feeling the chill and all you guys are shaking like autumn leaves under your underwear.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  When you let revengeful stupidity rule your mindset, thatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s how the cookie crumbles my friends!

I now read in the media that the Government of Sri Lanka is considering taking available legal measures if Channel 4 fails to disprove the evidence that they have provided that the video clip is a fraud which was grossly detrimental to the image of Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I hate to brag my Channel 4 friends, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Didn’t my Crystal Ball reading tell, I told you so!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

Let me see whether I could provide another of my Crystal Ball readings so that you can foresee what is in store for you all at Channel 4.

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-HmmmƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦What I see doesnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t look nice or good for the Executive and staff of Channel 4 personnel.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The Arctic winds are gusting outside their Offices on Horseferry Road in London.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The Big Ben has just told them that it is noon and they are coming out one by one in single file. HmmmƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.I see them shivering in the chill and I am not sure where they are being frog- marched to.

O! just a minuteƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.just a minuteƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.I notice that they are entering the CleanersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦..I believe as the saying goes, ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ they are being taken to the CleanersƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦I wonder why and I am ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ sure that I will soon find out.

LetƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s be patient, I am keen to see what is going on myselfƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦..ArrghƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦here they are coming out ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ one by one, not in their executive suitsƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and working smart clothes that they had worn going inƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦.I suppose they have been cleaned outƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦..OhƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦No!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ this is hilariousƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦everyone is wearing a Skunk costume and right on their bums are printed the words —SKUNK TV 4 & CO.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They seem to be shy and find that the Big BenƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s shadow is not long and dark enough to hide their shameƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦ and passers by are pinching their noses to keep away from the nasty skunk smell which I am sure even the perfume of the Rose and Lavender plots at Kew Gardens are not strong enough to get rid of the SKUNK TV 4 & COƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s skunk smell.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

It is up to you Executives of Channel 4 to get anything out of this reading.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  As I told you earlier, my Crystal Ball readings have never let me down so far.

Hey! Just a minute, there are more images that I see in my Crystal Ball!ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ There is a crowd gathering in front of a modern looking building, a demonstration I believe, white people on one side of the building and a crowd of brown looking people on the other side of the street.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Quite a few are carrying placards. The street name is quite blurredƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚¦it reads like HƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚orƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚seƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚ferƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬‚ry Road. I am not sure whether that is indeed an existing street!

A white man is carrying a placard which says ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” UN CALLS FOR INDEPENDENT PROBE INTO SRI LANKAN EXECUTION VIDEO.

I notice and it is quite clear.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  A brown-man is carrying a placard which reads ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” GO SUCK EGGS.

It is quite clear that there is a white manƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s colonial bombast in reading of these placards which I interpret as ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-If you are white, itƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s alright, And if your are brown we will frown.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  If I am white, I know I am brightƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Are you kidding the brown man says ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-If you are white you must be triteƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Look at me he says to the white man ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-And I am brown and I am wearing an intelligent-crown.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It certainly looks like a war of words and opinions.

As I told you in my last letter to you, call me ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Hocus-Pocus Voodoo ManƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ if you have to, but thatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s OK.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And as I told you in my last letter to you bunch of pathetic revengeful people I will repeat the words ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Good LuckƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚, now that you have stepped in to your own murky creation of a sinister world of audio-visual communications, as you guys are so arrogant and pompous to think that the media are above the law, and that you can get away with anything.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Ha! What twaddle!

In my last letter I said, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-I will spare all of you for now with my curse ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…”ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Pox on all of You stupid people for trying to hurt my Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Having read the forensic reports of that video clip, and coming to the conclusion that Channel 4 failed the basics of journalism; to authenticate fully and identify whether the video clip was factual; to suspect the hearsay material in this video clip and do your best to carefully scrutinize its authenticity; and finally not to safeguard the credibility and integrity of the media, I will now say, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Pox to all of youƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚, for wanting to deliberately hurt my Sri Lanka in the eyes of the world by airing that video clip on August 25.

I will be watching to see where the dice is going to fall in this ugly episode, now that you have rolled the dice.
