REFERENDUMS. AN EXERCISE IN LOGIC !

So it seems a referendum on at least one issue is upon us this year possibly as early as May!   We say at least one issue, because there are people who feel this would be an appropriate opportunity for other important issues to be put before the people of this State, by way of referenda! These include amongst others, the Constitutional and statutory right to a Home.  the Constitutional and Statuary right to a Vote at the age of Sixteen years.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Now in respect of the latter proposition, it is assumed that those who proposed and support the proposal, do so on the grounds that a sixteen-year-old person is mature, intellectually, socially,  emotionally and of sound economic understanding, to pass judgement on the suitability  of  several candidates and of those candidates  own or party policies, as also the impact of those policies  at home and abroad!

Could this constitute, on the grounds of logical thinking, a question as to why a Sixteen-year-old person, cannot purchase cigarettes, alcoholic drinks and cannot be charged under the Roads Traffic Acts for not wearing a seatbelt in a motorcar? or will all things change?

Perhaps those who support the proposition might give us all, the benefits of their viewpoint and of course, other readers comments are equally welcome!
