    16 year olds are to be given the vote...

    ...according to Komrade Korbyn.

    Now, 16 year olds are children at school. In which case, why not give the vote to 5 year olds?

    if they do give it to 5 year olds Jezzybell might have a chance. He just needs to dress in a pink dress and make slime.

      That amendment has been ditched. HTF did they ever think they were going to update the electoral register given the timescale?

        They used it as a caveat - their bluff was called.

        Labour can't be seen to say "Yeah, Ok then, whatever you want.".

          If at 16 you can join the army and die for your government why not have a vote for it?

            16 year old Conservative Party members were eligible to vote in the Tory leadership contest.

              Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

                British Army soldiers can sign up at the age of 16 but they cannot be sent to fight in a war zone or engage in a hostile situation until the age of 18.

                    Plenty of daily wail reading 66 year olds who shouldn't be allowed any near a voting booth.
