That really was unedifying yesterday in my view which thankfully the speaker stopped. All the parties using 16-17 year olds and EU citizens as pawns for their own political advantage. In my view that sort of issue should be passed to the electoral commission so they can be looked at impartially.
Clearly the date of the election was similar, the parties wanting either date due to perceived advantage from where students will be. I can't see how that could be removed from parliament though !
