Conservative says no to under-45s in Politics


Conservative MP, Anne Milton has launched an attack on the younger generation, implying that if you’re under-45 you don’t know stuff. I wonder what she thinks of her boss & Prime Minister who is 44 or the Deputy Prime Minister who is the same age as Cameron.

I think this is disgraceful especially since it is the older generation that got us into the current economic mess perhaps its right that the (slightly) younger generation get us out of the mess (whether they will though is debatable).

I’m not trying to launch an attack on the older generation, they have vital experience which we need in politics but the over-45s don’t know what its like to grow up in this day & age. They don’t know the issues that younger people face today. Even the over-35s don’t know what its like to go to University for tuition fees & face the level of debt that the young now have to bear. Youth culture has changed so much over the last 30 years & will continue to change at a fast pace. We need young people in politics to voice the real issues facing young people today & provide solutions to the problems facing this country from a younger person’s perspective.

Having people who’ve worked before going into politics is just as vital but we shouldn’t shut out the younger generation.
