Time to support the Tamils, say British Conservatives
Increasing involvement in British politics and reciprocal openness of the British political parties was marked by a part-televised event held in Essex Sunday where several incumbent and prospective parliamentarians from the British Conservative party reached out to their Tamil constituencies and articulated their positions on the conflict and its consequences in Sri Lanka.
The event was the first one in a series planned by the British Tamil Conservatives
Members of Parliament from the British party were keen to stress both their sense of fairness as well as their orientation towards action over rhetoric, according to a BTCA attendee.
Conservative candidate, Robert Halfon, echoed in his website, the sentiments stressing the need for autonomy for the Tamils saying they deserved nothing less. Read about Robert Halfon MP’s views.
