16 and 17 year olds are legally defined as children. They can't buy alcohol, they can't buy cigarettes as they are children. I don't believe children should be allowed to vote. There is no bottom up campaign from 16 and 17 year olds to be allowed to vote. This push is coming from adults who believe 16 and 17 year olds are malleable and easily impressionable, which they are. Most children are not emotionally developed enough to be able to form coherent arguments on complex subjects and tend reduce them to a morally based black or white fallacy. For proof of this look no further than the worlds most famous 16 year old, Greta Thunberg.

The age of consent (the legal age to have sex) in the UK is 16 years old.
