    Mugabe is 91 years old and he is the president of Zimbabwe. Age should no affect real leadership.
    Yeah, I am sure it's stressful and tiring being a dictator who sits there in luxury listening to yes men all day.

    Isn't Jeremy Corbyn the man who said that Osama bin Laden's death was a "tragedy"?

    Yes, because Mugabe's (former) premiership and (current) presidency can be described as 'real leadership.'

    With age comes wisdom. Do you really want to be lead by a public schoolboy who has worked in nothing but the industry of concealing facts and smudging errors?
    And what significant industry has Corbyn worked in?

    Do you think a 71 year old man could comfortably cope with all the stress of being Prime Minister? Maybe he will cope with it. I'm not having a dig at him as I agree with many of his polices. Simply saying that his age could be a problem if he gets elected as PM.
    Churchill managed to be PM of an empire with a world war on his hands after 70. Then got kicked out of office, then got reelected as PM where he stayed into his 80s.

    Do you think a fat, big drinker and smoker in 1950 was in better shape than a tea total cycling vegi in 2020?

    He keeps in good shape, owen jones did an interview with him by stopping him in the middle of a run, I've seen him ride a bike, and he likes gardening, so breathing in all those soil minerals will do him good no doubt
