    And what, life "experience" have you picked up within those two years after being 16?
    I'm not saying I have but there does have to be a cut off point somewhere. If anything, I think the age should be raised.

    No we won't. Does South Korea have open borders with the EU?
    Why would EU care about South Korea's border?
    It is Germany, France, UK, Italy and other countries that are dealing with the immigration crisis.

    We are at the hands of the EU when applying for the single market.
    Don't be surprised if they use this moment of weakness to their liking.

    South Korea has a free trade agreement.

    £0 EU contributions
    No free movement of people

    I think we'll be fine without the EU. In the short term, there will be problems but in the long term it will be fine, maybe better.

    I'm not saying that I do but by saying an 18 year old doesn't have much more experience than a sixteen year old and that we should let sixteen year olds vote then we'll sixteen year olds don't have that much more experience than 14 year olds and hey why not let twelve year olds vote too? There has to be a cut off point somewhere and at eighteen, only those who are legal adults may vote.

    You're kidding yourself if you think an ALevel/first year undergraduate differs from a GCSE or another A-level student.

    Anyone 16+ can join the army. That should be the voting age too. End of.

    You don't represent every 16 years old. Not every 16 years old wants to join the army or is as acknowledged as you.
    Don't say End of. if you can't have a debate, u 16

    That makes no sense. Like anything Leave related.

    The fact that a 16 year old does not want to join the army is irrelevant. They can join if they want.

    Similarly, they wouldn't have to vote. But they should be able to if they wanted.

    Not a difficult logic to grasp.

    Within the 'Single Market' services are not even 100% liberalised like goods. AKA we don't even have full access with services right now.

    But you won't be deployed to the front line until 18 if I remember correctly.

    You become a legal adult at the age of 18. That should be the minimum legal voting age.
    What does being in the army having anything to do with being able to vote?

    I don't know. Perhaps when someone can join the freaking ARMY they should be able to also decide for their future...?

    They're mature enough for the former, but not for the latter?

    Yang one can join the army as long as they are fit, it doesn't prove anything about their mental capacity. Also, they won't even be deployed until they are 18 because they are still legally considered a child.
