Stamping State Ownership on Teenagers

Cameron: I'll bring back 'National Service' to counter yob culture - Scotsman.com News

DAVID Cameron has called for a revived form of National Service to steer out-of-control youths back on the straight and narrow,
...
There was a need for "big social, cultural and political change" to tackle the problem of social disorder", he said.

While he said he would not bring back National Service in a traditional form, he called for a new "national citizens' service", which would involve the army and other voluntary services. He said it was "something all 16-year-olds should do, to learn about their duties and responsibilities as citizens and inspire them as being part of our country instead of being people who hang round on street corners".

Mr Cameron has said that a "rites of passage" scheme would encourage school-leavers to devote six weeks to military training, working in prisons, with the elderly or in developing countries.

Sometimes he is just a silly arse, isn't he. I thought we were now seeing the new grown up Cameron but underneath he still is same old Spliffy.

Well it seems to be working with Princes William and Harry.

The way things are going, my kids won't be leaving hom until they're about 30.

Well when you flip flop around you must eventually get something right. Even Gordo must have one or two right decisions over the last 10 years.
