Hope you apologized for uncle Boris’ vulgar “Covid parties” to our Prez when you called. Besides that, I cannot see what other useful dialog you could have had with our Prez. After all, we all know how the LTTE Tamil diaspora is having a hold on many in the UK parliament (by vote-bank bribes). I think you have enough on your plate now with uncle Vladimir Putin kicking butt in Ukraine, so better stick to that theatre! LOL
