I'll second that.

When youngsters leave school at 16, they should be given no more than 2 years to get a job, if not - put them in the armed forces. At least it will teach them some discipline and respect, if nothing else!

If you had a son/daughter who had enlisted voluntarily in the armed forces, would you want him/her to have to depend on someone who was conscripted? I wouldn't.

If not National Service how about Community Service of some sort. It might not work for everyone but at least some would benifit from helping others and gain a sense of pride or self respect.
If nothing else it would get the lazy blighters out of bed!!

The point again is the forces don't want
thugs and thieves,they want lads and lasses who want to be soldiers and are willing to do the training.
And before anyone says it yes they have their own Bad boys,SAS,PARAS,and the dreaded NAAFI staff.

Bin der dun dat. Demobed 1959.
I found it a great experience even though I did not want to go in the army. Two years well spent.
The trouble today dicipline is non-existant from birth onwards. I remember the bobby clouting my earole in Woodhouse Lane. (I must have deserved it)

kopitesere,totally agree with you what we need is to deter these yobs, I say tougher borstal prisons,boot camps if need be,and what about the birch,thousands agree with me but nobody in the poxy government does thats the problem, along with that sh!!e p c brigade.
As for putting them in the army!I have relations in the marines and from what I have seen of some of these scum around our streets I dont think the soldiers could rely on the cowards.

I was never in the forces, but if circumstances had been different earlier in my life, I would have enjoyed it I think. There are many good careers in the forces, it's not all about combat.

But you have to be prepared for combat I would think.

I couldn't agree more, give them a taste of life without their plasma tv's. mp3 players, ipods, xbox etc. give them a week in solitary for back chatting they would be crying for their mothers in no time.

Everything in life has to be earned and that includes respect. You never know some of them might actually learn some life skills, like get a bloody job.

In a gang they are tough as nails but split them up one on one and see who is Cock of the Walk. My money is on the Sgt Major.
