I saw this article in a tweet by Mark Nottingham.
Give citizenship to 300k people in return for making Maldives part of Sri Lanka? That's a damned good deal!!
I hope our country's leadership step up to the plate and negotiate something with the Maldives. Failing that we can always take them over too ... after the LTTE war is over we're going to have a HUGE military (much larger than UK's for example) without much to do! Time to take over our neighbors ... watch out India!
