If they can vote at 16, can they drink as well?


IT’S noted that the British youth council in conjunctio­n with the Body Shop have launched a new campaign to hopefully get young folk having full voting rights by the year 2024.

One question that springs to mind – if young folks are allowed to vote, should they be allowed to do things that are currently are restricted to the over-18s, such as buy an alcoholic drink in a pub?
