I can't find any link to it or mention of it on a news site but apparently David Cameron MP has commented on National Service and how he'd like to introduce a compulsory 4 months for a certain age group. I'm sure it's been discussed on here before, but wonder what we all think? Would a good stint of beasting and prodding with a pace stick transform our little binge drinking scroats into responsible hard working citizens or should it be a mix of community based schemes, like getting rid of all the grafitti everywhere and scraping chewing gum from the pavements(!), helping the blue rinsed brigade etc... Just wondering how we feel, is it viable financially...would we want thousands of unenthusiatic kids lowering the standards and possibly making the Armed Forces weaker? Or should we ship them all off to a remote island???
