Yes, of course, I can be impartial, aloof and maybe even cussed about this because I had no skin in this and continue not to have any. It all happened after I was long gone and it never really touched me.

But, I have heard much of the rumblings and accusations, against both sides, after the war.

My take on this is as a Brit and a cricketer — and I am saying this because the majority of Sri Lankan’s still love their cricket and understand the phrase it is just not cricket.

IF you belong to a club YOU have to adhere to its rules, try to change them procedurally and, if you can’t, and it still rankles you — get the hell out.

Just a few months ago the Sri Lankans were glibly talking about leaving the Commonwealth because they were miffed that certain Commonwealth Heads of State had concerns about human rights violations during the war. Well why aren’t they talking about leaving the U.N.?

To me, and again see opening line, this resolution is NOT a big deal. Yes, Sri Lankan pride, never far from the surface, has been bruised. Well, that is life in the BIG World.

What is this ‘investigation’ going to do? 25 years from now nobody will recall this. Look at the countries that voted for it. Chile! Mexico! Sierra Leone! Come on. Talk about the ‘pottle’ calling the kettle black.

OK. Just to assuage the collective ego throw some tantrums over the next few days … then either shut up let them do their thing … or leave the U.N. and get on with it.
