Capable of sound mind.

Many Viewers angry.

With one remarking that Ageism is just as bad as racism.What about respect for your elders and their hard earned wisdom.Another remarked we have all contributed to this country through taxes and National Insurance we will never be denied a vote.

Should have been banned voting on Brexit.

      Voting in the referendums was a matter of blind hope versus experience.

      Maybe if more young people had voted in the referendum we’d have had a different result? As it is I know of lots of younger people who didn’t bother- and to be fair to them its the crap state of UK politics that has led to such apathy.
