Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Do you know why I subtracted 21 (b. 1902) from 1923? I am well-versed in strings of non sequiturs STREWN by the presses in UK or US to this day.

wkiwtf, Representation of the People Act 1918

The Representation of the People Act 1918 was an Act of Parliament passed to reform the electoral system in Great Britain and Ireland. It is sometimes known as the Fourth Reform Act.[1] The Act extended the franchise in parliamentary elections, also known as the right to vote, to men aged 21 and over, whether or not they owned property, and to women aged 30 and over who resided in the constituency or occupied land or premises with a rateable value above £5, or whose husbands did.[2][3] At the same time, it extended the local government franchise to include women aged 21 and over on the same terms as men.[4]

1928, 1948, 1969, 1983, 1985, 1991, 2015, et seq.

I'm not even trying, but I hope y'all see a PATTERN in acts of Parliament (HoC, HoL) to devise any and all impediments to universal sufferage, or "democracy" in the UK. IF Brits don't know their "rights", how in hell do MEDIA personalities inform them about legal terms of the Withdrawal Agreement and exit from the EU "debated" by their representatives, much less "democracy"?

These people need practice, and they will not get it from watching MEDIA.

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
