Reason enough not to get elected to parliament

Looking at pictures of the new leader of the Labour Party in Wales, it makes me even more sure that attempting to get in to parliament is not for me.

Apparently Carwyn Jones is 42 years of age. I am turning 39 next month. If politics makes you look that old, that quickly, then I'm better off staying in the teaching profession !

Precisely my first thought on seeing a photo of him. 42. you must be joking.

He is a lawyer though. 42 going on 65 is an asset in front of a pompous windbag of a judge.

Moreover (sorry to nit-pick) he is not and never has been a Member of Parliament. He is Assembly Member for Bridgend.
