    Mervyn Silva LOVES the Media and journalists so much that he wants them to visit him at his home. The guy is really publicity-crazy.

    To satisfy "his master's voice"?

    Friday, 07 May 2010 04:34 PM

    Why did the goverment appoint him in the first place?

    Friday, 07 May 2010 07:29 PM

    He may have changed now, so please give him a chance. But ... journalists, 'aiyo...' don't trust his invitation to
    visit his home. You may end up in his BBQ ... Please don't.

    President Mahinda Rajapakse chose to appoint him to the post, being fully aware of his background, history and reputation. This speaks volumes ...
