Came across this Lib Dem leaflet from the Ealing Southall by-election where it was claimed Labour candidate and eventual victor Virendra Sharma was 72. He is contrasted with the Lib Dem runner up who is claimed to be 36. The LDs were telling porkies as Sharma was 60. They are at least consistent though after duly dumping their leader this week for being too old when I’m sure he would’ve lived until the election.

It’s only last year that ageism was meant to have been banned. Fat lot of good it did Ming.
