TURNING ON THE BULL: Labor leader Bill Shorten has nightmares of the Turnbull variety. Digitally Altered

LETTERS: Bill's a bit short in the ideas department

REGARDING the story: 'Shorten calls for lower voting age', 2/11.

Our young people have enough stress to cope with, without being forced to vote at 16, as Bill Shorten has put forward.

We shouldn't inflict that extra pressure on school students.

Our Opposition leader is obviously a bit Shorten the ideas department, and this one won't boost his image.

JUDI COX, Springfield
