Age is too good to waste on old ideas

If the British election debates reminded me of one thing it is that age is a much underrated commodity. Especially in politicians.
Being young is fine -- if you are an Xpose presenter, but in politics, youth is too specious when a race has to be run.
I know Gordon Brown is all character and no personality that can be easily discerned, but between him and the identikit twins, Clegg and Cameron (who I suspect have neither), I know which one I'd rather be with on the tiger shoot. And he has taken the British out of recession, for which, needless to mention, like electorates the world over, they are likely to give him a kick in the ass. Gratitude is such a difficult emotion.
