    I guess the Scot would have been with his girl friend with whom M.Silva would have tried to misbehave under Dutch courage.

    Ravan Lanka Saturday, 01 November 2014 03:40 PM

    So you wasted your precious time to comment on this....

    Npathirana Saturday, 01 November 2014 03:47 PM

    Thank you Scottman, You would have become national Hero if you hit him little harder. These guys assaulted even Officers of the Forces and got cleared. But Go immediately to UK embassy and ask for Security, as these guys will come with 100 Thugs now to give you return. (1 against 100) They are such heroic.

    DM pl do not give publicity to this kind of people.

    Prasannajit Saturday, 01 November 2014 09:14 AM

    I totally agree with Sinnan. Why publicity is given on media for these thugs?

    dulan Saturday, 01 November 2014 09:17 AM

    Daily Mirror publishes news about him as he is a future Minister and newspapers loves politicians immaterial of how bad they are as they sell copy.

    Will he ever learn? If my son behaved like him I would take a coconut tree branch and whip some sense into him. Shame.

    Deshapaluwa Saturday, 01 November 2014 09:50 AM

    Why we to worry about the thugs. They are nothing to do with politics. Thugs will get what they deserved and giving a press news about them is somewhat encouraging for they to earn popularity. Malaka is same like another son living in a remote area. They are good for nothing but wasting the public time.

    Jehan Saturday, 01 November 2014 09:38 PM

    it will be covered up before malaka and his father run for elections. they have done worse and been rewarded. assualt on military officer and samurdi officer are good examples. via DM Android App

    Philip Sunday, 02 November 2014 03:11 PM

    This thug is no ordinary thug. He is the son of a government minister and a candidate in the upcoming election. This newspaper has a responsibility to publish news about him, good or bad.

    regi Saturday, 01 November 2014 10:52 AM

    People are living in a hand to mouth circumstances and this fellow has enough money to burn in a night club till early morning. He should have been tied to a tree to bring some sense.

    Damanida Saturday, 01 November 2014 10:53 AM

    Some good news finally !! Let there be more assaults on him. Live by thuggery die by thuggery.

    Shadow Saturday, 01 November 2014 12:27 PM

    It is the Scottish nationals courage to assault this thug and I commend his efforts. It would be great for this idiot to stay away from socialising and going to night clubs before he receives a slap on his face and a kick on his spine from another person.

    dimdim Sunday, 02 November 2014 04:55 AM

    Thank you Scotsman on behalf of the civilized world for kicking this thugs arse!

    Should have tied him to a tree and beaten.
