The Yoof Vote.
And the LibDems want to give 16 year olds the vote! maybe a round the world airline ticket would be better, then 3 years tax receipts and then you can vote....personally I dont think I was even sober till 22...something about Evel Thatch I seem t recall.
2 Things I would do at a stroke, firstly only names on the ballot sheet, no political parties names or symbols, you go into the polling booth having to know your chosen candidates name.
Secondly, elected judges and magistrates, to be a judge you are elected for life after winning your second nomination, belive you me a lot of people are going into law to further political ends instead of the application of the law, this should balance it all out a little over time.
