The Sinhala community living in United Kingdom has strongly deplored the UK Opposition Labor Party Leader Edward Miliband for wishing only the Tamils for the Sinhala and Tamil New Year that was celebrated Tuesday while the Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron extended his wishes to both Sinhala and Tamil communities.

Miliband issuing a message stated opportunistically the Labor Party has always been a friend of the Tamil community dwelling in Britain.

His Statement as follows…..

"The Labor Party has always been a friend of the Tamil community and will continue to be so, and we will continue to push for the full and independent, international investigation into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka. It's something I raised with President Sirisena when I met him and we will continue to push this forward, we will continue to advocate for your cause," Miliband stated.

"We in the Labor Party know our responsibility to the Tamil community. So let me reiterate my wishes for a happy new year and I look forward to working with the Tamil community in the months and years ahead," Miliband extended his greetings further.

Ironically, the British Prime Minister David Cameron conversely valued both communities and stated New Year is also a time to remember the "fantastic" contribution Tamil and Sinhalese communities make to Britain.

Cameron pointed out that he offered Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisena his support for the steps that Sri Lankan government has initiated to address the issues of the past.
