I'm a similar age and believe that 70 plus is too old for such a demanding role. What do you think? wee eddie 10:24 19 Jan 2018 I would say to him. "Go for it" Everyone is different alanrwood 10:45 19 Jan 2018 Depends on the person. Churchill was PM in his 70s. Forum Editor 11:49 19 Jan 2018 Churchill served as Prime Minister until he was 80, but in truth he was well past his best by then. Harold Macmillan served until he was 69, James Callahan until he was 67 and Margaret Thatcher until she was over 65. It's difficult to say that 70 years is too old, it depends on the individual. Cymro. 12:53 19 Jan 2018 I suppose we have to draw the line somewhere. I reckon that 70 is about the limit but that 80 is over the hill. This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
