Age-based Voting in the EU Referendum

In the aftermath of the EU ('Brexit') Referendum, there was a lot of talk about the disparity between the old (who it seems voted in larger numbers and mainly to leave) and the young (who mainly voted to remain, but many of whom did not vote - or for under 18s were not eligible to do so).

Here is Sean Lock, proposing to include those over 10 but exclude those over 65. You'll need institutional access to Box of Broadcasts.

If you don't have that, my TV guide says it was from Series 4, Episode 6 of 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, which seems to be confirmed by 4OD. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to square with what I can find on Youtube, where episodes seem to be wrongly labelled. It featured Bill Bailey and Josh Widdicombe as guests.

A more serious, academic take on the issue is provided by this Van Parijs article (which I've shared before) but I think I might use Sean Lock in my lectures.

  6. You did an excellent job on this post! I’d like to add an extra productivity tip to your list if you don’t mind? When I was in London I found that there are many issues in finding the right chauffeur service in the UK generally and in London specifically. The biggest challenge is finding a professional, safe, and punctual service at the “right” price. But, because of the many costs we professional operators have, prices are driven higher while, on the other hand, unruly competitors disrupt the market more and more. Another thing is related to Cancellation policies that are the most sensitive issue. When you’re working with different time zones, 24-hour notice should be the minimum period to allow an operator to review his working schedule without any penalty fee. This is because they are providing a service that needs to be coordinated, not just simple transportation.
    Uber has changed the way chauffeur companies operate and forced them to improve our productivity and decrease our prices while maintaining our quality. This has been and remains a challenge, although the overall outlook is much more positive than it was before because they now have adapted our operations to this new environment and Uber’s quality of service has decreased over the past few months.
    These are some of the main issues I’ve found there and because of it I decided to start my own chauffeur company in London with the brand name “Chelsea London Chauffeurs”. I’m glad to announce here that you will find none of the above-mentioned issues in any of our chauffeur service in London. Here are some other important points you need to keep in mind while choosing our chauffeur service London.
