People should wait until 45 before entering politics

13th April 2011

Public health minister Anne Milton has said that people wanting to enter politics should wait until they are 45.

Former nurse Ms Milton, 55, told the Royal College of Nursing Conference in Liverpool that was the age that you “know stuff”. Her suggestion makes David Cameron, who turns 45 later this year, too young to govern. Her boss, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley, is 54, although he was under 45 when he got into politics while Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Chancellor George Osborne are all under 45.
