I believe that anyone who works for gov should not have a choice in who the government should be as self interests interfere

@Marty_Caine

@Marty_Caine So anyone who is a teachernursepolicemancleanerdustman should not have the vote?

@nessiefuery

@nessiefuery I think those who get paid by government should be apolitical, personal opinion of course.

@Marty_Caine

@nessiefuery Don't think it should apply to cleaners amp; dustmen etc but those who can have an influence on others

@Marty_Caine

@Marty_Caine so you personally would disenfranchise all teachers and police!

@nessiefuery

@nessiefuery Definitely teachers. I had a uni lecturer bragging that the majority of his students don't vote for anyone - he teaches politics.

@Marty_Caine

@Marty_Caine Biggest influences on young people's voting are peers and family. Maybe they should lose the vote too, Marty?
