David "I've got a selection of shit ideas" Cameron has stated sixteen year olds may be given the vote. He said:
"Greater consideration must be given to the young people of this country. They must be represented in their Parliament as we make decisions that fuck their lives up, as much as older people. Giving the vote to sixteen year olds is something we should spend hours, weeks or maybe even months debating, even while the economic crisis deepens."
David's idea is that of a politician on his way out. He is desperately clawing around for votes at the very bottom of the barrel. Here is a man who is so far out of his depth he's like a limbless swimmer sinking to the bottom of the Atlantic. He talks about this because he can't go on TV and scream "We're all fucked! The economic crisis is swallowing our nation whole!"
If Cameron thinks that sixteen and seventeen year olds are going to be so grateful for the vote that they will rush to the polling stations to pledge their allegiance to him, he will be sorely mistaken. I've heard the EDL have already signed up Kelly Brooke as their spokeswoman. Everyone knows teenage boys will vote for a pair of tits rather than a balding one.
