    Law Breaker! What are you doing in Parliament? Go home and learn the basics of living without being a nuisance to others.

      See, this is srilanka – Minister himself drives a motorcycle while RMV authorities stay silent. Lawlessness is proved. If this was the case in Germany, Uk or Switzerland – auithorities will take an action against him immediately- his driving licence would be suspended for 2 or more months. And even he has to go on a traning in which his psychology is closely examined. Why the bugger MR – behave as if he no backbone seeing and gawking all the time is most crucial question that helpless nation would raise – if Mervin want to provoke the nation inthis way- i really dont think this govt will last long. Each and everyone will start hating the idiot and MR.

    Funny part of the ride was, you can clearly see 2 so called traffic police officers (For only politicians) clearing the traffic to make a way to this low breaker to drive without helmet… seems the 3rd photo shows he is driving on the opposite lane. so definitely these so called police officers block the entire 4km road. So called Miracle of Asia..

    i still remember when president MR opened the southern expressway, he took the first drive to declare open and at that time i remember him not wearing the seatbelt…he was sitting next to the first lady and televisions showed the video..so law is only for the common man?

    For those who are impatient and who blame RW for not toppling MR. Please see the number of supporters still hanging around and cheering one of MR’s right hand men? All look IRC characters, who are capable of anything, murder to looting.

      “For those who are impatient and who blame RW for not toppling MR”

      VP ensured MR’s victory. Thereby he had ensured endless supply of pain and suffering to the Sinhala/Buddhists. This could be the curse of VP. Is VP’s curse working?

      Exactly Gamini. I have been making the same point elsewhere. We should bring out the attempts by these shadowy figures to deflect the blame on the regime by attempting to find fault with the Opposition; not because we support the opposition, but because this is what the real culprits are doing to void responsibility.

      Call out every situation, when the blame is deflected to some other party with stupid arguments.

      This man Mervin is bron to disgrace the entire folks Srilanka. Those who allow him to behave in this should be punished to the same manner if any law – in this country in action. This country is now in an anachial situation – law respecting people are helpless being compelled to get to see this kind GONPART from these buggers.

      Entire nnation should come to the streets to the manner that arab countries recently did – to drive these buggers home by anymeans.

          It is not worth leaving comments in this regard. If there are at alteast 10% among us that respect rule of law – this man – mervin should be removed from the current regime. He is now permanent headache to the nation, better to reveal this by a reliable opinion poll.

      You know Gamini, that is I call our nation as most stupid folks on the earth. They are just idiots – what is the difference between ours and somalia – can anyone explain ? we are on an anachial situation.

      Gamini,kelaniya has always been a strong hold of racist elements,not
      excluding people like Syril mathew from UNP and Kelaniya itself is a
      hot spot like Kattankudi for racism.Now to represent such an area,
      selecting someone like Mervyn is,a fitting tribute no doubt.What else can we expect from men like them? Unfortunate that our memory is so
      short about popular Gonawala Sunil.CBK had a man from a bakery to this
      electorate.We have a rotten culture of tolerance to hooliganism, due to
      our stupidity of defaulted ignorance.So I think it’s the growing impatience that can bring about a change and not being insipid.People
      must stop ignoring things that are happening around them by force and
      aimed to cause inconvenience and disrespect.It’s the responsibility of
      genuine opposition to educate the masses and see an end to this type
      of jokes in public.Opposition is only waiting for the tray to come
      with Orange barley.

    It’s true that Mervin Silva’s father’s profession was Bakki Karatta (Bullock Cart) rider. So Merv. don’t know a hang about helmets, or riding which side of the road….Why don’t Kiribathgoda people kick this kelavedda to his home town Beliatta…where he can’t play these games there.

      Mervyn is step brother to MaRa, CHaRa, GoRa and BaRa. There is an element of doubt whether DaRa was a bullock cart rider. I stand corrected? Mervyn is uneducated and uncultured and has been bestowed an honourary doctorate. He was also MaRa’s badu supply kolla!!

          It is just all those are awarded with those honorary doctorates. Media should pay the attention – when writing about this and other buggers, not to add their so called titles. Ones who have worked hard for the titles are being embarraced if journalists continue using the title Dr. bevor the names of Mervin and the similar personalities.

      I heard something else about him AND his father. [Edited out]This however could be correct, when listening ot him how he speaks out – whatever the issue it is. Is there an any politician that has fallen to this level in our entire history since 48? No, here people of this country should need to focus on the background on the family from which the politicians are coming from. All these were the seen examples in the recent past. Duminda silva was similar to this man. From these example, the nation can learn a lot – even if MR seems to be like deaf elephant to this kind of provokes carried out by DONKEY Mervin. What is the purpose of all these ?Instead of redering a service as a minister why is he doing ?

    Now that this is highlighted, he will pay the fine from the extortion/drug monies to show as if he abides by the laws of the country. These are dirty tricks to fool the gullible masses.

      “Oh my lord budha, how long you going to tolerate this evil morons.”

      He was an enlightened soul before the Sinhala/Buddhists were around. He should have been a lucky soul indeed to have avoided Mervyn and his ancestors.

      By the way since he was enlightened he stopped indulging in earthly pleasures, feelings, discriminating between good and evil, right and wrong.

      You say

      “As long as sinhala modayas refused to use their brain…srilanka will suffer sadly we tamils suffer without any reason…”

      This can only mean without a shred of doubt their brethren the Tamils too are modayas.

      Tamils suffer because of their own conscious choice or decision.

      To my knowledge Buddha has nothing to do about this, please don’t insult great humans lived on this earth. Yes Sinhala voters must not vote these donkeys to parliament. But don’t forget Mervin has a very firm Muslim vote base around Kelaniya, Wattala area. Specially Muslim drug dealers. So should Prop.Muhammed (peace be upon him) responsible for this? No..

      I’m Latif but I stand by what I believe to be true.

    harmless pranks by Mervin – forget it -do not take it serious-he has seems to be having a big vaccum – he need to fill it by such stunts..do not blame the police, their arms can stretch only to a certain extent-not that they like this prank-they are helpless too. In a country where the Judiciary itself is not spared, think about the very ordinary “ralahamy”-sit back enjoy-anarchy at its best ….long live Sri Lanka Matha…

    Sri Lanka’s Jungle Law.. Here, Minister Mervin Silva violates traffic law (riding motorcycle without helmet) and Sri Lanka Police escorts the traffic offender. People cant even smoke a cigarette on the road side without being fined/jailed by police. Here we witness Sri Lanka’s jungle law! Be it traffic law or criminal law, there is no law applies for MPs and Ministers but
    for people!

      IGP will say, we don’t have any witnesses and those are not a tragic officers and more than that he is not Dr. MS. We are looking into this issue seriously as we didn’t here such incident happened or reported by anyone and we are searching for the person who look alike Dr.MS. This should be a attempt to a bad image on Dr.MS. If anyone see this event they can directly come to Kiribathgoda Police station and report.

    This is MR’s Sri Lanka. Mervyn is only a symptom. We all have to unite to topple this MR dictator. Fighting amongst us will only help MR. Ranil, TNA, CBK, Shirani B, SF, Muslims, Tamils, Left, JVP, extreme left, SLFP dissidents, we all have to get together. there is no point criticising each other. MR will only be happy to see us doing that. Opponents of the MR regime, unite!

      Sure, if CBK was in power she would have called for a disiplinary action againt this man – Mervin is a curse for anyone who supported SLFP politics. Ones those who allow him to dance on the streets naked – to be punished. World is looking at stupid activities under MR regime. Shameless.

    Mervyn Silva is a Mahinda Rajapakse family strategy. If a person is bad enough in the eyes of public how do you divert that bad attention of the people. You let a another very bad person around so that attention of people will get diverted to this bad person (Mervyn Silva). Mervyn Silva is used by Mahinda Rajapakse family to show that they are much better than Mervyn Silva.

    While this lunatic move around other passengers have to wait in the roadside…one can see in the pictures.

    Most disgusting man in our nation – Mervin – this will be the results if an opinion poll ( reliable) would bring it soon. Even any criminal in Walikada or any other prison could behave better than this man. No any seniors in this country would stay calm get to see these kind of activities.

    Looking @ some pseudonames of commenters (Julampitiye Amare etc…), mentality of general public is vivid, why blame Mervin?

    People love to show off.. In developed countries they do it professionally, you know how it’s done in Somalia..

    Mervin just proudly represents those who voted him.. His own brethren.

      Agree, but I really dont think or remember that we ever got to see this kind of low level activities any past times in the country. My question is why the stupid nation still takes the side of the one who guide Mervin – that is their beloved leader MR. Why the folks are watching as if they have nothing to do is not comprehensible. A couple months back there were many against him to have collected funds from anyone in the area – they advocated that they would bring Mervin before the courts. Since then I have not read anything about that. Why is that ? Where has people^s voices gone ? Why were the unable to go forward with the collection of all the evidence that they said to have collected to go against Mervin ? All these are my question. If a person, minister or anyone is headache to the enitre nation, they should be something aginst THE MAN… TODAY SRILANKA IS NOT BETTER THAN THE FORMER LYBIA, EGYPT AND ANY OTHER ARAB COUNTRIES in which people^s voices and protests broke their regime. So the latter should be the only alternatives that the folks have today – if professional from FUTA or law academies would give it a lead, people will surely support it. That should be — anytime now..

    Mervyn breaking the law is hardly news. If, at any juncture, he abides by the law, that would be worthy of comment. What upsets me the most, looking at the pictures in this article, is the sheer number of sycophants surrounding him.

      Why do the people wasting their time to put comment to this mad Marvin? How many comments are there?. It seems like the MR’s dog came out of Temple trees and waliking towards the GalleFace without fear, you people ilk blame it while you hide behind the wall with fearly. It is Dog. We don’t want to use our words to blame or look at it. If it try to bite pedestrian like mad dog we can kill him. Why dont you have such kind of moral to train a guy (sniper) to kill this burger or his son? If iam live in sri lanka I’ll definitly do that. How many Army persons willing to do that if they given money? Some mad people (like Gamini) open their mouth and waiting to put the comments on whatever published in CT. Action is better than words.
