    Nobody would protest even more perks and salaries were afforded to them, though the good examples they show go in vain.

    [The government intends to spend a staggering Rs. 100 million to control the growing stray dog population through a [countrywide vaccination and sterilization programme]. ]

    There is no need for that. Just get those unemployed JVP gradtuates to kill those dogs and pay them R100 per dog. I am sure they will enjoy that kind of work. It is better than bringing the politics to dogs` level in the country.

    I think there is a massive dog problem in Sri Lanka and the government needs stop listening to the animal rights people and kill all the dogs without owners immediately in the cheapest possible manner.

    Every cricket match between Sri Lanka and England had a dog run onto the field.

    Mervyn will be the ideal choice as Minister for stray dog control.

    [Health Ministry last year reported 730,000 cases of dog bites, approximately 2,000 bites per day. The government spends about Rs 14,500 to treat a single victim. A senior official said that Rs 500 million is set aside for treatment alone on annually]

    This is a staggering cost.

    Imagine the cost to the nation if the country is run by mad dogs?

    First of all give vaccinations to those who elect mad dogs.
