    I will commit suicide tomorrow: Mervyn.
    Best News. Are they selling tickets for the event ?

    s.s. samson Monday, 10 September 2012 10:57 AM

    I think the President should go and give him a glass of milk and stop it. If that happens what a loss to the country.


    J Dan Monday, 10 September 2012 05:22 AM

    Do it today, Tomorrow will be too late.

    dalu banda Saturday, 08 September 2012 09:24 AM

    so why not commit suicide? We are happy to see it.

    Arun Sunday, 09 September 2012 04:56 AM

    Tomorrow he is gonna tell, "Not today. I said tomorrow". haha. We know this joke for a long time Mervyn.

    Anton Weeraisnghe Friday, 14 September 2012 05:50 AM

    He is already dead in the eyes of many sri lankan.
    Let's talk of the living issues more.

    manoj Saturday, 15 September 2012 05:00 PM

    If you say something and then don't do it YOU ARE A LOOSER! There are many ways to die, please do it now so that I can celebrate in VANCOUVER.

    Ankoore Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:04 AM

    Oh What a tragedy. Don't Mervin Ayia. Thambi we need you and a few others in your cabinet. Oh.Allah uh Akbar u.

    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 09 September 2012 06:03 AM

    I can remember how Anurudda Ratwatte tendered resignation after the bomb blast at Sri Dalada maligawa. Later, he said, due to the request of public he has withdrawn the resignation. Likewise you too will tell similar thing. Gimmicks of politics :(

    Puran Wednesday, 12 September 2012 04:46 PM

    This item has been appearing in this paper for the last few days.

    WHEN IS THIS "TOMORROW" that he has been promising ever come.?

    Perhaps he may make that supreme sacricifice with the hapless animals to be killed at the temple.

    Good sailing Mervyn.

    Mi Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:15 AM

    Please go head I can help You

    Not Pot Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:17 AM

    Please Mr. Mervyn Silva commit suicide as soon as possible. It wi]ll be a blessing in disguise and save the goverment and the people of this country a recuurent headache..

    Hussain Saturday, 15 September 2012 06:39 AM


    Jagath Leanage Sunday, 09 September 2012 06:06 AM

    If Mervin commit suicide I too will follow. I am saying this because I am sure I will not have to do it

    Calistus Jayatilleke Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:10 AM

    Wow, the best thing that can happen to this country! Please go ahead, please!!

    cxcb Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:01 AM

    waste of time, this guys talks hell of a lot of rubbish !!!

    jiffry Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:26 AM

    DM why are you wasting your time by interviewing this person.He talks like a saint but how many families getting destroyed by the drug peddlers?

    sathya Sunday, 09 September 2012 04:49 PM

    he can be put in to a group and please save one animal

    Ravi Wednesday, 12 September 2012 05:50 PM

    You committed suicide long a go in front of all srilankens , if you rely wants do it again we will do it for you !

    Abu Malaka Sunday, 09 September 2012 05:37 PM

    Its not acceptable for him to commit suicide. its only fair if he is hung along with his goons. Since there are so many gorakayas we can do it in batches

    Rubert Vanderkoon Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:41 AM

    Admireable the minister is taking steps to prevent mass cull of innocent animals for blind beliefs. Best wishes for a succesfull protest and to save many innocent animals.

    Rubert Vanderkoon Saturday, 08 September 2012 10:42 AM

    Predominantly Hindu states in North India like Haryana, Haridwar, most areas at least are pure vegetarian. This is ironic in a way that a god or goddess affiliated to Hinduism is associated with killing innocent animals. Blind faiths have to be ruled out from the constitution.

    Shaik Ahamath Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:06 AM

    I used to think Mervyn Silva was an ignorant thug but this interview revealed he knows a thing or two about world affairs. He came across as a concerned human being, fighting for the welfare of the defenceless. I am warming up to his stance on animal sacrifice, which I abhor with a passion.

    Tania Friday, 14 September 2012 11:45 AM

    Wisest words to come out of Mervyn for a long long time :-)

    shan Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:25 AM

    OK Gohead
    for future S/L

    Hussain Wednesday, 12 September 2012 07:05 PM


    b.balaraman Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:42 AM

    congratulations for showing compassion to animals.thank you,from a person who loves all god's religion says to sacrifice animals.the devotees do not want to sacrifice their animal instincts,instead are sacrificing poor animals. you have spoken loud and clear.

    raymond Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:44 AM

    Please, please, go ahead and commit suicide. Thank you

    IVJ Saturday, 08 September 2012 12:05 PM

    Tony Sunday, 09 September 2012 08:03 AM

    Today I had fried chicken for lunch. I do not know who killed the chicken. Can Mervyn find out the killer punish him.

    Richardson Sunday, 09 September 2012 08:15 AM

    We must get a goat to sodomize Poosari.

    Richardson Sunday, 09 September 2012 08:18 AM

    He can get enough women ,he does not have to do self gratification you moron.

    Ranbanda Thursday, 13 September 2012 02:48 PM

    mnsmart Saturday, 08 September 2012 01:41 PM

    Thank you in advance..

    Nadi Saturday, 08 September 2012 01:52 PM

    Five minutes in the psychiatrists chair would produce a fairly accurate diagnosis. Don't blame Mervyn he can't help himself- blame the employers.The most salient features of the Lankan political system are the absence of integrity and talent. Imagine Sweden or Holland being governed by such people.

    Murungakka Sunday, 09 September 2012 09:36 AM

    Tomorrow never comes aney. Balagiri doshaya wagei. :((

    Good work "Daily Mirror". You s diatribe of Mervin the Vermin's promisisng to commit suicide on Page one of your papaer for at least the last three days.

    A sensational story but a big help to keep him alive as perhaps there may be no "tomorrow".

    yaka baas Tuesday, 11 September 2012 09:13 AM

Look up the Books of History, evenSri Lanka did offer a Princeses to the sea to stop a flood, remember Meryn de Silvas Great Great Great Great Great great grand mother and the Mother of Duetegemenu. Learn before you tlk like the idot PHD Meryrn.

    Hussain Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:45 PM

    It looks like nothing has happend so far. Its only a ruse as everything of his. He is what is called in the West, a " Bull Shitter" par excellence. The guy loves life, why should he end it?

    patriot Saturday, 08 September 2012 11:38 PM

    I think he has more brain than all the other politicians.

    Kallu Nariya Sunday, 09 September 2012 12:19 AM
