When I hear Shelly Glover muse that Anita Neville has exceeded her "expiry date", I tend to agree. However this is not a case of age based discrimination. There are many quality politicians of her age that do a great job and I support, but this particular politician is frequently vile and disturbing in the House of Commons. It has nothing to do with her age, but rather the vitriol that spews out of her mouth. When I made the personal decision that I had enough of Anita, her age was not a factor. Her words were all the reason that I needed to think she had reached her expiry date.
It is ridiculous that Glover's comment is even becoming an issue. Shelly is an admirable individual and there is no way she intended to attack Anita's age. It is her policies that have expired, not her ability to function as a politician.
