Comments received for "Stealing a Nation" post

It seems that for some reason, some comments are not being displayed on this blog. I have received them through email. Here are two of them:

"I am absolutely ashamed to say that I am British! we owe these poor people their lives!"

You must not feel ashame. Even though your Government is to be blamed, the British and Americans (people, scholars, lawyers) are still the ones fighting for the cause of the Illois.

"The profile of this indefensible case has been recently raised on British television and through the writings of John Pilger in the Guardian Weekly.An excellent site has been created at next phase is an appeal to the European Court of Human Rights and the ethnic cleansing of the Chagossians deserves widespread publicity if we are ever to be truly proud of our respective civilisations and their constitutions.You can help by linking to the site whenever possible and raising the profile of 'Illois' in search engines.Although 'Chagos' and 'Diego Garcia' return many results, 'Illois' returns few relevant to this cause.Power to your elbow.


Thanks Moon. Publicising this issue is one of the main reason why I have this blog. I do have a link to this site already. Maybe I should rename this link. Thanks for your support if you are already talking about it.

Stealing a Nation - Part review

Readers After watching the programme yesterday (06-Oct-2004), I am out of speech for these poor people. It is amazing how the British government tricked these poor people out of their home land. They also claimed the Ilois to be "floating people" when they had their grand parents fathers and mothers born and bread on the island. All the time up to now I thought that only the British manipulated the evidence and that the Americans only kept a low profile on the issue. I was shocked about the kind of documents the American administrations faked on Diego Garcia. Now, after their battle in the High Court of England, the British Government does not want to resettle them over there because they claim that it will be too costly and it is not worth the tax payers money. How disgraceful. They do not have a heart or even a soul if they think like this. This is a brief description and review of the programme. I will write more later. I must say a great thanks to those who contributed to the documentary.
