Give 16-17 year olds the same rights as people who are 18+
background
Under current UK laws, 16-17 year olds sit in an awkward grey zone of legality. We cannot vote nor do we have equal working rights as adults however we can be charged adult prices in hotels and for public transport. A change must happen as we are fed up of being treated as children when we're not.
additional details
The possible solutions are rather simple: either continue to treat us as children and allow us to pay child prices in public or make us legal adults and give us the benefits and rights that come with that. We're not stupid or lazy, we want to be treated as actual citizens of this country rather than unknown entities who have to sit back and watch while meaningful decisions are made for us that directly impact our future. We want to work, we want to vote and we want to be equal in law.
