By 2020 Corbyn will be over 70

Steve Richards in the Independent about Jeremy Corbyn:  "By 2020 Corbyn will be over 70. He has no experience at the top of British politics. On the basis of his own statements he would not go into that distant election with the manifesto he currently espouses. He points out that Labour is a broad church. To keep the broad church intact Corbyn would have to disappoint those cheering now or preside over some form of schism."

Over 70 is old.

Not since Henry Temple in 1784 has someone begun his Prime Ministerial career aged 70.

Winston Churchill was Prime Minister in his 70s but he found it a struggle.  People in their 70s get ill.  They get tired.
