Jo Swinson: boost for votes at 16

bridgeJo Swinson (who I’m convinced I saw on Westminster Bridge last night chuckling at something on a Blackberry – maybe she can confirm) has revealed that the beleaguered PM is finally doing something half-useful: floating a review of the minimum voting age.

I’m totally in favour of this, not only because of the obvious inconsistencies with other minimum age brackets.

Could it be that some good, in the form of changes to the electoral system, manages to emerge from the final days of this otherwise disastrous administration?
