One thing 's for sure, Mervyn isn't camera shy and only anti-media outwardly. But inside he thrives on the media and its cameramen!

He probably went there to see if he could tie up a couple of protesters- I wish he'd dared!!!

I'd like to see him try some off his dumb tricks again, I just want to see him get really battered. Its been some time since he last got it and his ego hasnt decrease even a bit. People when you get a chance like this "Deepan okage homba galawenna"!!

Look at the smiles on peoples' faces. Mervyn has become an entertainment figure, a media attraction, a crowd-puller . People think he is a clown or a comedian. Well done Mervyn.
