National Citizenship Service for 16-year-olds launched today - Telegraph
Every teenager in the country will today be invited to take part in a two-month summer residential course under plans for voluntary programme of national service....
The Times reports from its bunker that the CameronYouth will cost the taxpayer £1400 a head. The official line is that "Funding for the Citizen Service is being provided through the scrapping of a community cohesion programme run by the Department for Communities."
Savings are not income, by not spending money you don't create it, it is still funded by mulcting the taxpayer.
Will today's troubled teenagers give up their summer holidays to join the "Blackshirts-on-Sea" camps? Or will it be just subsidised holidays for the middle classes?
