I knew this would happen but I never thought the Labour Right Wing imposters would stoop so low as actually discriminate against the leader to make a very weak point
That’s right they used his age as a reason why Jeremy Corbyn should not lead us into the next Govt, they say by the time the 2022 term comes to an end in 2027 he will be 78 years old and thus too old to lead the nation as Prime Minister.
This is gutter stuff and discriminatory as the Equality and Human Rights Commission states under age discrimination:
The Equality Act 2010 says that you must not be discriminated against because:
- You are (or are not) a certain age or in a certain age group.
- Someone thinks you are (or are not) a specific age or age group. This is known as discrimination by perception.
- You are connected to someone of a specific age or age group. This is known as discrimination by association.
Age groups can be quite wide (for example, ‘people under 50’ or ‘under 18s’). They can also be quite specific (for example ‘people in their mid-40s’). Terms such as ‘young person’ and ‘youthful’ or ‘elderly’ and ‘pensioner’ can also indicate an age group.
If age was really a barrier do tell me why we have Judges well above retirement age and also lords in the House of Lords indeed if that was the case we could have a right clear out
The Independent should withdraw or amend there article as they should not be seen to foster such discrimination.
Jeremy Corbyn will himself know when he has had enough and when it is impacting on his health no one else should make that decision for him and right now I for one welcome his leadership in transforming the party for the betterment of the many.
