59

Is the average of councillors on principal authorities in England.
So the gathering of 10 Birmingham councillors predominantly under 45 at the weekend for an I&DeA ran programme certainly didn't look like your average set of councillors.

I guess the primary reason is it's an attractive option for the retired. I believe there needs to be a mix of Councillors, in terms of age, employment status, political experience and interests. I imagine it's very hard work to combine a full-time career with work as a Councillor.

I recall someone once describing those who were councillors as: "the elderly, the retired, the unemployed and the unemployable".
