Malala Yousafzai was interviewed by Mishal Husain

On the Today programme this morning Malala Yousafzai was interviewed by Mishal Husain.

Malala Yousafzai is a 16-year-old victim of terror and violence who has come to live in the United Kingdom.  Her views are taken seriously.  She has addressed the United Nations and been interviewed on the Today programme.

Ralph Miliband was a 17-year-old threatened by terror and violence who came to the United Kingdom in the 1930s.  And yet we are told that his 17-year-old views should not be taken seriously.  He was not old enough or mature enough to know what he was saying.

Double standards seem to be at play here.
