This Cambridge professor says six year old might as well be allowed to vote, because old people are allowed to vote, and (apparently) old people are ignorant and barely literate, like six year olds. So, jokingly, he advocates lowering the voting age to six.
Didn't people used to make the same kind of arguments against allowing women to vote? Poor people? And, in the USA, people of colour?
Read the article please Gransnetters, and tell me what you think.
