    For Mervyn, the renaissance was something that happened to other people. He likes doing things but his head is not developed enough to do anything useful in a civilized way.

    Richard Tuesday, 03 August 2010 01:03 PM

    Good move. Mervyn Silva has done the right thing by setting an example for other Pradeshya Sabha members. People complaining here are simply political jokers. Only internet warriors.
