Are You Feeling Old Yet?
The saying has it that 'you know you're getting old when policemen look younger'.
In my life it's not the policemen who look younger every day, it's the politicians.
The former head of the Labour Party, Ed Miliband, is my birthday twin.
Tim Farron, recently elected leader of the Liberal Democrats, is five months younger than me. We went to University together, graduating on the same day, and I remember him well from those days.
Scottish National Party leader Nicola Sturgeon is also a few months younger than me.
Meantime Universities Minister Jo Johnson is two YEARS younger than me. OK, he is the brother of Mayor of London Boris Johnson, so he had a bit of a leg up in the grand scheme of silver-spoon-in-mouth hierarchies this country seems to work on at times, but even so, he's a minister in HM Government and I'm still a humble administrator.
I guess I must have missed the turn off in life which pointed to the top of the pile.
