Carry On Conscription

Following on from this weekend’s posts on the subject of “hugging hoodies”, it appears that the majority of Britons want National Service to be reintroduced, a survey shows.
About 69 per cent think that compulsory military service would curb the country's growing yob culture and cut crime.

The survey, by GfK Media, found that 65 per cent of adults think National Service should be used to reduce overcrowding in prisons.

National Service ran from 1945 to 1963, with 2.5 million young men conscripted.

As you can see from the photo, Nigeria appears to have a working solution to the hoodie problem and are keen to share it with David Cameron.

Nigeria is a pretty violent place, the man above is probably going to have an old car tyre put around his neck and half a gallon of 4 star poured over him before being ignited.

Not a nice way to go but at least he won't reoffend.

If the Police don't do their job properly then vigilantes will do it for them.

Kent's Finest should take note.

No, this chap is the one who sends you all those Nigerian e-mails and is going to make you super rich because his thousands of relatives have died in the same plane crash, and left him Billions that he doesn't know what to do with, so, he's just going for a quick swim!

On a slightly more serious note, Conscription never hurt anyone. Wars Kill, Injure and Maim, not Conscription. Therefore I would support such a move.
Would this Conscript Rule also include Johnny Foreigner, our Favourite Prison Filler, or would it be reserved solely for our True Brit Yob!

Johnny Foreigner wouldn't serve in the British Army unless he is naturalised British, or British born of foreign parents - in which case he is as technically British as you or I - and you had better believe that ( and keep on repeating it) in Blairs politically correct kingdom or there will be trouble.

You make Mr Blair sound like that German Dictator chappie from 65 years ago! Sounds like a NAZI threat!

Why should we feed and clothe the blighters in our English Prisons?
Cheaper to return them to their Land of origin, and be done with the whole matter, as long as we keep records that show up like a fire alarm if they try to re-enter.

Mind you, going along with your thought pattern, I suppose we could organise Internment Camps, and keep them there. They originated in the BOAR War, a completely British invention. That German Dictator chappie simply 'borrowed' the idea to do his dirty work!

This log has no bearing on everyday life in Thanet. It arises from thoughts that might improve the 'British way of life'. I am neither Racist or Prejudiced, Cholic or thoughtless, just a plain ordinary Tax Paying Brit!
