Now this is not a newsflash from Ipswich nor indeed the MTO at Rinteln's call for help thread. However if it is the case that we have millions of long term unemployed youth and thousands of gapped nursing jobs, then do you need a Ph.D from Harvard to work out a solution here? Conscription doesn't normally float my boat but why not do a "Bevin boys" deal here and conscript trainee nurses? got to be better for dah yoof than media studies at East Wigan Polyversity or whatever else they do to occupy themselves? Give them three years, teach them to read and write and give them say 1.5 years credit towards a degree. Well tony, what are you waiting for?? Mooooooove!
