    What a lot of rubbish because the banks are my friends where they generously gave me funds to expand and the colonials did a lot for India and other countries they ruled. They abolished slavery though it was difficult to completely eliminate. It was the slaves who built the Taj Mahal where their hands and eyes were cut or pulled after they completed that structure and we too had our version of slavery, the reason why likes of Ehalapola after seeing the orderly life created in the nearby colonies wanted the same in Sri Lanka where the Kandyan convention gave every citizen equal right, just as in England.Injustice was there in all countries that included UK but UK was one of the countries that came out of this dark age,the reason Max and Lenin spent a lot of time here in London studying the newly emerged system in UK where every citizen have equal rights
    look at the orderly way they conduct their daily business at the JUK Parliament, tell us much about the decency in this country(UK) and we should have that in SL too.
