Pension equality for ex-service veterans

That all veterans of the Armed Forced be treated equality in regard to the provision of pension rights, and that the 1975 pension act relating to service pensions be amended to ensure that those who served this country in the 50s, 60s , and early 70s be awarded the same pension rights as those who served after April 1975.

change the british army recruitment process !

in this day and age the british army in my opinion is to civalised reducing the effectiveness and capabilities. i strongly thought about joining the army until i sore the selection process which was like i was applying to become a teacher or something. of course fitness is vital and being pationate and motivated is alwayes good , but they include all sorts of time wasting nonsense like team games mental tests. i belive there should be a medical and fitness test and a interview. not the process of going to talk to someone informally then taking a silly british army battery test followed on by two more interviews and a army development and selection centre. they should simply examin your medical status and fitness and if that is in the green they should build you up from zero. this way there would be a increased number of soldiers who are no less capable then the soldiers to day within the army. to sum it up a better recruitment process which is not silly.taking a leaf out of israel's book could never hurt. and just for the sake of saying it. i belive the war in afghanistan is a load of nonsense and im sure at least ninety percent of people would agree with me. its about the sercruity back at home is it not ? wasting time money and lives for nothing ..building a school in afghanistan which taliban will rip down again..a waste of time… the subject i wrote about isnt a law but it is a  GOOD POINT. take it into consideration.

BRING BACK NATIONAL SERVICE

When young adults leave school if they don't continue into full time education and attend regular or secure full time employment, then they should do 3 years in the army, where they can learn a trade and some much needed discipline.

National Service

Whilst I know this would upset a lot of mothers ( I am a mother myself) I feel that National service should be brought back. There are so few opportunities for children when they leave school and whilst some go on to further education and some do find gainful employment there is a vast majority who don't. Not everyone is academically able but it doesn't mean they are stupid they just have a different skill set. 

I feel if after 6 months or 1 yr of leaving school they haven't secured a place in college or found employment then they should join the army where they can have a trade and some direction. We have too few skilled workers in the UK. They could be based in the UK learning a trade and helping communities. The forces have many trades its not just shooting a gun, engineer, mechanic, telecommunications, chef, administration, driver, logistics. We need to give our youth some direction and get them off the streets and make the people of UK proud to be British
