The voting age should be reduced to 16 – not just to widen democracy but because it is an anomaly that young people who are old enough to pay tax to the government have no influence in electing that government.
Any ten year-old who’s walked to the local corner shop with a couple of quid in hand planning to buy sweets is technically a tax payer. Your logic is flawed.
