Bob Jones: Discriminatory Laws

The Supreme Court’s ruling that the voting age of 18 is discriminatory, is simply stating the obvious. All laws are discriminatory.

For example: the law requiring drivers to drive on the left discriminates against those who would prefer driving on the right. That’s not being silly. Doubtless numerous tourists and migrants would favour a shift to right-hand driving.

Banning murder is massively discriminatory against the several hundred citizens with such a penchant, who periodically knock someone off in New Zealand and then are punished for it.

The current voting rights are hugely discriminatory against me, as my preference would be for only me to decide the government. It would certainly save a lot of time and money. The current majority rule situation could reasonably be described as mob rule which is hugely discriminatory against the minority’s wishes and not just mine. However, being noted for my tolerance, I do not waste my time and the Supreme Court’s by seeking a pointless declaration on this injustice.

The reaction from the group of adolescents who lay behind this case exposes their unsuitability to vote by their meaningless action and subsequent misinterpretation of it.

Nevertheless, the Prime Minister managed to misunderstand the Supreme Court judgement and promptly announced an intention to introduce such a voting age. That’s simply another nail in the government’s coffin, as if it needed any more. There are so many already implanted one suspect they may be the underlying reason for the steel shortage.

Entirely agree - they were wrong from the beginning but now they are just falling-about stupid. My word it's going to be a long year.

Silly commentary. Discrimination involves extraneous attributes - those that have no bearing on the issue at hand. For instance, forbidding me from applying for a pilot's license because I lack the required visual acuity is not discrimination as visual acuity is not extraneous to flying an aeroplane. Note that 'discrimination' in human rights law is followed by 'on the basis of' which is followed by a list of attributes (sex, race, religious identity, etc).
