It’s not just their own future though, it’s a no from me personally

In that logic why should people over 80 or so get to vote?

They shouldn't, they should be kidnapped on their way to the polling station and put on the carousel

On what basis?

I understand that there are some 16 year olds more intelligent than I was at that age, but how much are they really aware of what’s going on in the world and the country ? Will they think about what could happen to interest rates? The economy ? All you want at that age , and I know I’m generalising, is some money to go out and have a laugh with your mates. Those that are thinking about university will think it’s great that Jeremy is telling them they won’t have to pay for it without thinking about the consequences. Too many just aren’t mature enough in my opinion, and yes, I know there are plenty of immature adults 😁

I think 16 and 17 year old young adults have every right to determine their future. 

As do 14 and 15 year olds. You giving them the vote? How about 12 and 13 year olds?

A hell of a lot more these days with climate change and Brexit dominating the headlines perpetually for several years. I was in the audience for Question Time aged 16. Also - not being funny, there's a huge number of adults who haven't got a scooby about anything going on in the world. To say that a 16 year old is any less well equipped than a 20 or 40 or 60 year old moron on the basis of nothing more than sheer numerical age is suspect in the extreme and entirely inaccurate

Will they think about what could happen to interest rates? The economy ? All you want at that age , and I know I’m generalising, is some money to go out and have a laugh with your mates. That's incredibly condescending and embarrassingly out of touch.

Those that are thinking about university will think it’s great that Jeremy is telling them they won’t have to pay for it without thinking about the consequences. Too many just aren’t mature enough in my opinion, and yes, I know there are plenty of immature adults 😁 Again, condescending and out of touch.

We have a shocking turn out rate at the polls and 3.5 years on, I know adults who still don't understand what Brexit is or what the EU is. Engaging people in the political process at a younger age, is one of a host of measures that need to be brought in to give us some semblance of actual democracy. It should be mandatory to turn up to the polls unless there is an exemptionable reason not to. You don't have to vote, spoil the ballot if you like, but you should have to turn up.

I hope there will be a consultation in the next Parliamentary session about voting ages, and I hope the conclusion is that the age be raised back to twenty-one.

Sperm votes ! 

Glad you've demonstrated why you're SOOOO much more mature and worthy of a vote than a 16 year old. You can't even have a sensible debate, you go to some ridiculous tropes that haven't been true for 20+ years and then descend into immature nonsense. Compelling argument as to why 16 year olds are too immature to vote.

Sixteen year old kids would have been a mighty eleven years old at the beginning of a Parliamentary session. As if they have any idea, for goodness sake

It’s starting to appear that you’re a good example of why everything is so divisive, you don’t want to discuss anything, you just want to tell everyone you’re right and they’re wrong.
