Teenagers who refuse to work face on the spot fines - Times Online

TEENAGERS who refuse to work, attend training or go to school are to be issued with on the spot fines under government proposals. Any who still fail to comply would then be taken to court where they could face further penalties.

The measures are designed to enforce a new law which will be outlined in this week’s Queen’s speech. It will say that all teenagers must remain in education, training or employment until they are 18.

The change will be phased in by raising the age to 17 in 2013 and to 18 in 2015. Details of the new “age of participation” will be outlined by Ed Balls, the children’s secretary, in a television interview today and in a speech tomorrow.

According to Balls’s department, if they refuse to attend, they will be given a formal warning, in which the “local authority will clearly explain their duty to participate and the consequences of not doing so”.

According to Balls’s department...the “local authority will clearly explain their duty to participate and the consequences of not doing so”.

"...the consequences of not doing so”? "...face further penalties"?
What a great idea for shirkers. Now let's apply these rules to the real shirkers of England, i.e. MP's and those who live off the state. Hmmm? Those who live off the state. I dont necessarily mean poor people! I mean those who come to England and live off it without contributing. That would include people who hate England and English folks! Let us apply these rules to them first. Watch out El Gordo!
