If all of those seemingly fit and healthy young men and women flooding into Europe were given 6 months military training, a gun and a box of ammunition before being sent back then couldn't they defeat their oppressors and recover their Country and freedom? methinks: if they're not willing to defend the Country of their forefathers, how can anyone anticipate greater loyalty to their new Country?

It's Official !
Bill Shorten is MAD.
Votes for 16 year olds?
Why not 15 or 14?
Ponder this for a moment. Would you give your 16 year old son/daughter voting rights in your family where their vote was EQUAL to those of the parents?
Where 3 children could OUT VOTE you on decisions about purchases? ( sell the house, buy a new car, invest, save, allocate spending priorities etc)
Bloody MAD.
TIME TO GO BILL.
YOU'VE LOST IT COMPLETELY.

Agreed.
As much as I support sensible policy, this is absolute stupidity. No 16 year old has a trucking clue about running a country or what's important, other than girls (or boys) and sex.

There are lots of other things to think about - like consequences of policy changes to foreign trade, Mining, immigration, ECONOMICS, pensions, HIGHER EDUCATION, social security, medicare, DEFENCE, TAX POLICY, and a raft of other things that 16 year olds have absolutely no interest or care in or ability to actually analyze.

And I had to wait until I was 18 to vote, and even then, I was sure that I took it a whole load more seriously than others of my age, as I WAS WORKING and not pissing it up or bonging on at university like my friends.

no, not even ⅔ of the sub 21 y.o. population give a rats arse about politics.

IMO the voting age should be raised to 21. and political science should be a mandatory subject in year 11 & 12. i.e. 'the truth about politicians and why they want your vote'

These kids are far less aware than my generation which coincidentally is the first generation to have to PAY HECS FEES. thanks to my parents generation allowing this to happen.

Complete overhaul of Higher education policy is needed as well - which is what the feds are responsible for. You think a 16 year old has any trucking clue about this? ha. too busy thinking about themselves.
