In yet another example that the world has gone crazy the head of politics at Cambridge University has called for children as young as six to be given the vote in an attempt to tackle the age bias in modern democracy.
Conservative Party South Australian Senate candidate Rikki Lambert says the suggestion is absolutely nonsensical.
Professor David Runciman said the ageing population meant young people were now “massively outnumbered”, creating a democratic crisis and an inbuilt bias against governments that plan for the future.
He said, “I would lower the voting age to six, not 16. And I’m serious about that. I would want people who vote to be able to read, so I would exclude kindergarten-age-children."
Rikki says it's suggestions like this along with co-opting children to take part in the recent "Climate Emergency protests" that illustrate just how ridiculous politics is becoming.
