Are Salmond and Sturgeon trying to make Scotland safe for hypocrisy by lowering the voting age below the legal smoking and drinking age?
By Geeza Fag
THE LEGAL age for voting in referendums is to be lowered from 18 to 16 whenever the SNP get the chance to benefit from it.
SNP Drone MSPs unanimously back a change in the law following a poll which shows 16-17 year olds support independence within a prohibition joyless, alcohol free, smoke free, thought crime free Scotland.
The move attracted Nationalist support within the Bloodyrude Cooncil and is hoped to be implemented within the next two thousand hours.
However, concerns have been raised that the move may only be temporary due to a deep distrust of the age group by the SNP.
Minister for Self Righteous Nannying, Auld Nick Sturgeon, told members that a person who started voting at the age of 16 only did so because they could not legally drink or smoke.
The legal age for voting was set prior to the implementation of Twitter and Facebook, long before opinions could be manipulated by ‘internet wizardry’ politicians.
Ms Auld Nick is due to present a number of proposals later in the year.
People in Scotland are twice as likely to die from political boredom than anywhere else within the Union.
The Self Righteous Minister said nothing had yet been ruled in or out of the government’s attempt to curb problem voting.
She said: “We all know that Scotland as a nation has a voting problem and the implications of this are very serious – not least for the SNP referendum.
“The Scottish Government is currently in the process of developing a long-term voting strategy and as part of this we have been looking at a range of positive issues including maturity, naivety and judgement.
