Anyway, have a read of this:
He had no cause to believe Mrs Choudary had behaved inappropriately with Dr Worth.
"Why would she? Why would a woman of her age be interested in a relationship with a man of his age."
Fool has made an incredibly large error here. He is not insulting Worth insofar as EVERY man of Worth's age who has a much younger girlfriend or wife. And also insulting the women of Mrs Choudary's age who find men of Mr Worth's age attractive. Replace the word "age" with "race" and Goff's comments become front-page news offensive.
As it is Age Concern should be putting out press releases quick smart.
We concur entirely with Cactus Kate here. OK - we must confess to being a bit biased, given that all three of us (me, myself and I) are in the 50-55 age demographic. We could go on about all the ageism which we have personally experienced, but that would be overkill.
But the REAL irony is that Fearless Phil fits the same age demographic, so what he's really suggesting is that younger women are unlikely to be interested in HIM. On that point, we agree wholeheartedly. After all, what power does a deposed Opposition Leader wield?
