A bob each way on future voters fails

Parliament has voted to keep the drinking and purchase age of alcohol at 18-years-old.

In a rare showing of MPs acting like responsible adults the wowsers that infest our Parliament were firmly put in their place this afternoon after trying to have a bob each way on raising the drinking age.

Supporting an age of 18, he said they were entrusted with choosing Governments in the ballot box and defending New Zealand or other countries in the Army.

Tau says what needed saying. After all, whilst we can send our 18 year olds overseas to get slaughtered in our military because the RoE for other countries are hideously restrictive, the same young adults should be allowed a beer.
