YOUNG ADULTS: They simply haven’t been around long enough.
PERSONALLY I think the voting age should be raised to 21.
It’s not that I consider the young lacking in intelligence, or am ignorant of the view, that if your old enough to die for your country you should at least have a say in who runs it.
The fact is they lack experience; they simply haven’t been around long enough.
An 18-year-old today wasn’t even born when the last Labour government was first elected, and were still children when they lost power.
They have no idea what it is like for adults to exist under the depressing, inept incompetence of a left wing government.
They have never experienced the sight of the fat cat bully boys of the unions, tanned and fresh from their Marbella villa holidays, emerging from Downing Street and announcing that half the nation would be on strike, if the ‘workers’ weren’t given what they (the unions) demanded.
Of times when ‘everybody out’ issued from the employees of one vital institution after another, until the whole country staggered from one crisis to the next and employers were blamed for everything from the price of soap to the shortage of cat litter.
They have no knowledge of a country, run by a party who bribes its constituents by creating whole cultures of benefit scroungers, and to pay for these free handouts, taxes those with any initiative to create jobs and wealth to such a degree that they leave the country in droves.
Labour is, and always has been, a party that has no idea how to actually create resources and always uses the wealth, painstakingly earned by previous governments to create the illusion that they are a successful organisation, by pouring investments into popular schemes that will ingratiate them to their constituents.
When there are no longer any previous legacies to lay claim to, they borrow, beg and steal (Brown stole the country’s gold reserves and sold it for a pittance!) until finally there is nothing left and they are finally voted out, leaving the incoming party to once again pick up the pieces.
Margaret Thatcher summed up this bunch of incompetent con artists perfectly, when she stated that the Labour party are fine, until they run out of other people’s money.
Thank the Lord for Corbyn and the likes of Diane Abbott. They are the true face of the left, and not in fact the false faces of Tony Blair and his henchmen of yore.
So, to all the young voters, who believe that the ‘all men are equal, tax the rich and ban the bomb’ tirade that issues from the left is the answer to what ails us, I suggest you all think again.
I’m not saying it’s going to be plain sailing. But at least with Theresa May we have a chance. And be honest, do you really want Diane Abbott to be in control of the nation’s police force? Ha!
Keep the faith

Well said Lerapy! I think you ‘hit the nail on the head’ with this one. Labour have been a disaster for Britain and that idiot Corbyn has no idea on how to run the country.
We have too many scroungers in the UK who live off benefits and have no intention of going out to find work. They are dragging the country down and I will never go back to England. I would rather live in Africa than put up with the lazy people who turn to crime for their income. Murders have shot through the roof in the last four decades and none of them get a proper jail sentence. The whole country is going to the dogs.
Agree Roy ….. Justice System has lot to answer for in way of sentences & ofcourse not only their fault Gov. at Fault All of them for not building prisons. There are many Ships in Mothball in UK that could be fitted out as Prisons & also for housing asylum seekers & immigrants Then transferred to housing once they find employment. Many as you say don’t want work. But with 10 children & 6 wives ( Or as Cameron said call it one Wife & 5 dependents. ) then not breaking the law on Bigamy. They would need a Job paying ÃÂ£5,000 a week to match what they get in Benefits & we all know only Fat Cats & MP’s or Lords get that sort of money & more. While Nurses held to 1% rise last 5 years. Corbyn is going on about putting Billions into this & that, cutting immigration. Building 100,000 houses a Year. Deciding on Trident but if built he would never agree to pushing the Button. So WHY build it ??? With all money we owe he will have to borrow everything he says he will do……….. All pure Vote seeking. Can say anything as will not get in.. Which is just as well. But all parties promising what voters want to hear. But as usual they wont keep their promises. Should be a Law against false promises
You obviously know little about ships. How do you think crews get ashore when docking
All these asylum seekers are young healthy men in 20’s & perfectly capable of getting ashore & looking for work
Or failing that each could have a Job Centre on board
I realise if we let them ashore we will loose a few !!! But that’s nothing new we loose them by the 1,000’s in present system
Also if a Ship is considered good enough for Merchant Navy & Forces. Then it sure is luxury for these 20 year olds fleeing ?????
Just take an Airfield no longer in use especially US Air Bases I know one that has Hospital ; Cinema ; Bowling Alley ‘ Aldi ; Garage & Bungalows to house 3,500 : Completely Empty & Securicor on gates 24 hrs a day. Yet we put them up in best Hotels until local house becomes vacant. & We as case in my Town move them in & give them ÃÂ£800 CASH for Carpets & ÃÂ£800 CASH for Furniture. What do our people get ZERO !!!!!! We also give them Mobile to help look for work & pay for second hand cars as they don’t like public transport & taxi’s become expensive… ALL I have said here is True & seen it happen !!!!!!!!!!
While at sametime had some Polish Workers do some groundwork for me recently & could not wish for better workers. They said One days pay UK = weeks pay in Poland !!!! So Yes Ships are Ideal as are Redundant Airfields & Air Bases. One last thing how many floors could you put in a Hanger & add Windows. Get hundreds of rooms in them & easily guarded.
I agree, should be 21 at least.
BTW, doesn’t matter if there are some under 21’s that understand enough to vote, the majority do not! I listen to what a lot of the youth say, even the ones in their 20’s scare me as to how naive they are… but then we all went through that stage! Now being older I know my views in my early years were way off track as are those of most youth today who are very short sighted. 🙂
Maybe EWN could explain how some people can post well over the 450 limit? Not a problem, just intrigued as to how this blog never seems to function correctly no matter how many changes are made to it on the development side!
