""Parliamentary democracy is one of the British values that English schools are now required, by statute, to promote during lessons - not debate, not discuss - promote.""

One opinion of why the Tory's did so badly in the recent election is because zillions of young, first time voters were motivated.

And they all wanted their freebies!

Yet more pish from the resident clown/s who just spams this site with the first thing that enters his wobbly little head each day.


Quote:
Lord Ashcroft’s final poll, which interviewed 14,000 people from Wednesday to Friday last week, found people aged 35 to 44 swung to Labour - 50% voted for them while just 30% voted for the Tories.

This is compared to 36% of them voting Labour and 26% backing the Tories just two years ago.

Sky News’ political editor Faisal Islam said this “should terrify” the Conservatives, who have always sought to position themselves as the most credible on the economy to homeowners and parents.

The voting age should be lowered to 16. It's time young people had a real say in their own future. To deny them that would be as bad as putting restrictions on those that vote due to gender or religion.

Absolutely. It is legal to work at 16, legal to pay some taxes, legal to have sex, legal to get married and legal to have children and also legal to join the British Armed Forces. Of course 16 year olds should have the right to vote.

If you're 16 and interested in politics there's something wrong with you

Clearly you don't know teenagers..

These are the people who voted to name the Royal Research Ship, Boaty McBoatface.. if the conservatives had offered beer and pizza to all voting students, under 20, they'd have had their landslide.. :yey:
