Cheeseybiscuit

Pro

Given recent populist triumphs such as brexit and the election of Donald Trump plus the rise of fake news, We should immediately limit the eligibility to vote using a combination of a basic political knowledge test and a verbal reasoning or intelligence test, Limiting the voting only to those who can answer basic questions about the policies of the party they are voting for and the reasons behind their decisions.

In all other spheres of our society we have a hierarchical and merit based system for allocating the right to make decisions, The fact that in the most important sphere (the governance of our nation) we do not is illogical and should be corrected.
