Politicians warned to 'wait until they are over 45'

People wanting to enter politics should wait until they are 45, a junior minister has suggested, making David Cameron too young to govern.

Public health minister Anne Milton, 55, said this was because it was only at that age you "know stuff".

The PM, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Chancellor George Osborne are all under 45.

Ms Milton, a former nurse who worked in the NHS for 25 years, was speaking at the Royal College of Nursing conference in Liverpool.
