    GL will definetly get outfoxed by Fox, but MR will say he is the best FM. Till the time GL has wings to be a bat and no will to have firm policies, he will survive in the political arena and will be hailed by MR. GL will not mind whatever the people say about him..

    Ranil has outfoxed GL by more than a day. He plans to run with the hounds rather than play verbal football with foxes.

    Most suitable man for the job is Prof. Rajeeva Wijesigha.Poor principle of the government.Must go with Ranil.
