Youth must have its fling

Ranil WIckremesinghe is an 'evergreen'.  No, not because he is young -- he wasn't exactly 'young' when he campaigned for the Presidency, claiming to be 'youthful'; he is ever-green because he will never leave the UNP.  Anyway, this 'evergreen' recently said (believe it or not!) that the youth must take over.  No on in the UNP's Working Committee, to our knowledge, said something like the following: 'Thank you Sir, please submit your resignation; we would be happy to accept it'.  Not even Sajith Premadasa. So much for words!
