Australia is a racist country, how can they extend help for a minor group?

Mr. Morrison could have obtained the comments of the Military Governor of the North on the telephone from Australia instead of going all the way! On the other hand had he also met with the Chief Minister, an ex Supreme Court Judge, and a man of the highest integrity and calibre respected even by many Sinhala people too, he could have had a meaningful intelligent discussion. It is an opportunity missed!
What could happen with the naval patrol boats donated to the SLG is that a few escapee boats might be shot at and drowned on the high seas given the past terrible record of governance on the island. Further, it might be also used against Indian fishermen in Palk Strait poaching in SL waters. Wait and see.
