Here is the latest in a series of lists categorising some of those standing as candidates in seats which are either notionally Conservative or appear on paper in the top 200 target seats for the Conservatives at the next election.
Yesterday we listed the ten youngest candidates standing in those seats.
Below is a list of the ten oldest candidates to have given us their dates of birth:
Brenda Porter (Southport, pictured) – January 10, 1939
Ken Andrew (Carshalton and Wallington) – December 21, 1944
John Bell (Clwyd South) – February 10, 1947
Gordon Henderson (Sittingbourne and Sheppey) – January 27, 1948
Eric Ollerenshaw (Lancaster and Fleetwood) – March 26, 1950
Jonathan Evans (Cardiff North) – June 2, 1950
Martin Vickers (Cleethorpes) – September 13, 1950
Deirdre Alden (Birmingham Edgbaston) – May 1, 1952
Sian Flynn (Cornwall North) – July 30, 1952
Byron Davies (Gower) – September 4, 1952
NB Several candidates have declined to provide us with a date of birth, although two who also stand out as demonstrating considerable experience over a number of decades are Mid Derbyshire PPC Pauline Latham (who has been married for forty years) and Slough PPC Diana Coad (who joined the party in 1965).
