Should the voting age be raised?

In this week’s Daily Politics Soap Box film, journalist Samuel Hooper criticises moves to create so-called “safe spaces” on university campuses.

He asks whether, if students “want to be treated like emotionally fragile children”, they have “forfeited the right to have a say in the running of the country”.

And he suggests that the voting age should be raised – not lowered, as some campaigners want.
