Their opinions matter, of course - it's just sad that their opinions are so manifestly wrong
They're leaving to their children a world with a ####ed environment, a malfunctioning political system, rampant inequality, failing services and so on - and some of those consequences may be irreparable.
Those over the age of 55 are just as entitled to a vote as the rest of us are. Implying that someone's opinion is less relevant because they'll soon be dead seems rather callous to me.
....assuming we don't fall out in a hard Brexit by the time we get through the inevitable endless transition he will probably be at voting age. Lots of older voters and angry middle aged men with high blood pressure who voted Brexit will have died off and all these youngsters will have to endure the shit left for them. We already have THE best deal of any nation in the EU28 and even if we only half leave we will never get that back.
It's a travesty.
( You are right in your original point, obviously....was a schoolboy error )
I agree 100%. It just doesn't help when the likes of Jukes make basic mistakes on social media that the likes of Farage/Banks can easily jump on.
......50.1% of those who vote can fundamentally change things.
But the young generation who had no vote in this farce but will have to live with the consequences while scumbags like Banks and Farage will no doubt get away with their lies deserve a chance to change this.
And 100% incorrect.
