I don’t know him personally but I do know the name. “Dissanayake” is a quintessential Sri Lankan, Sinhalese name and I even have a “Dissanayake” as a relative. “Nalin” is also a Sri Lankan name, though not a common one. There is also a Sri Lankan cricketer of that name.
That he felt compelled to do this — i.e., go around flashing his British passport — is SCARY. I guess he is worried that he would be mistaken for a Middle Eastern immigrant. This is sad. Not sure I would have to flash my British passport IF I were in Britain today, post-Brexit. I guess, for a start, I don’t dress like an immigrant.
C’est la vie. This is very sad and bad.
Just thought I would share with you that he is originally from Sri Lanka — same as I.
