Alf shares the alarm of the family of an intellectually disabled woman whose carers are supporting her to vote in this year’s election.
The woman in question has the mental age of a two-year-old.
This means she is likely to cast her vote for Labour or the Greens.
In a sane world, she would not be allowed to vote at all.
But there are lots of daft people out there and, sure enough, her voting rights are being championed by disability advocates.
These advocates are supporting the woman’s caregivers’ actions, saying the voting rights of people with intellectual disabilities should be protected.
