Academics on Age

Ming the clam is 'oldest animal'.

A clam dredged up off the coast of Iceland is thought to have been the longest-lived creature discovered.

Scientists said the mollusc, an ocean quahog clam, was aged between 405 and 410 years and could offer insights into the secrets of longevity.

Of course, the good academics of Bangor University weren't thinking, at all, of the quite-possibly-a-wee-bit-too-old-for-his-comrades MP for North-East Fife? No. Surely not.
