Re-Introduce National Service for youth unemployed.

Re-introduce compulsory National Service for anyone aged 18 or over who isn't in further education and is unemployed. Particularly those individuals who have NEVER had a job.

Compulsory National Service could also be used as an alternative to prison in cases of petty crime or reoffence.

They could be paid a wage, say at NMW, which would be partly funded by the reduction in paying out dole money or not having to keep them in prison.

National Service need not mean Army, Navy or Airforce.

Some people have suggested bringing back National Service, for youngsters! Maybe the service could be modified to include Hospitals, Sports venues, Highways, National Parks etc etc.

National Service could become a form of paid work experience. Not only would it help get youngsters off the dole, it would help get the Country back on its feet.

A new type of National Service

National Service , bring to mind of men playing at soldiers!

 

It doesnt have to be that way

My idea is that for every recently convited person under and up to the age of thirty five must be made to do civil service (NOT community service) in addition to their sentence! This means when they finish their sentence they MUST go on a program where they are educated about the responsibilities of every British citizen, along with some rather strigent excersize regimen to teach and reinforce discapline amongst onesself. If they successfuly complete the course then they are offered training to help them to get gainful employment. However if they are convicted of a further offence, having been through the above then they are given a harsher sentence, for the reason of 'abusal of trust' given by the British people!

This idea could be extended to those whom are on long tern unemployed. Help them to teach value in themselves as well as others, build up their confidence!

Bring back National service

Bring back National service

 

Anyone leaving school aged 15 onwards has to join the military either RAF Army or Navy for 3 years service this will help control the yobs on the streets even if they are disabled they must join and be put through a a training course to help them in the outside world and also help in their own abilities although no armed combat for disabled unless proved fit.

 

Anyone who continues through school may do so but must complete the course they are studying and any failings then they are sent to the military this will stop the dodgers from dodging.

Those who do well and continue on in education will then be suitable for good jobs when leaving school college or uni

 

I would also recomend doing prison the american style none of this namby pamby stuff for hard timers like games consoles they should be on the streets in chain gangs building roads buildings and cleaning the streets if they have done the crime then make them do the time and put of want to be robbers and gangsters and drug dealers

Make the Military Covenant Law, and underpin with the NDM

During the past sixty-five years, millions of personnel have taken the oath of allegiance or affirmation to Her Majesty the Queen, accepting either through compulsion in the case of National Service personnel or voluntarily in the case of regular and reserve forces to place their lives on the line to ensure the United Kingdom and its interests are kept safe and secure.

I condemn the last Government who priding itself in its support to our armed forces refused to provide the commitment and recognition by recommending to Her Majesty the Queen the award of a UK National Defence Medal to veterans and for breaking the Military Covenant.

So I therefore call for the government to:

1.         Acknowledge the significant personal sacrifice our Armed Forces personnel make in their service to the Nation once they take the oath or affirmation of allegiance to Her Majesty the Queen.

2.         Acknowledge the failure to officially recognise the commitment and sacrifices made by service veterans who have contributed to the safety and security of the United Kingdom since the ending of the Second World War.

3.         Call on Her Majesty’s Coalition Government to rescind the decision made by the previous Labour Government to refuse to recommend the award of a National Defence Medal to our armed service veterans and instead, establish a working group to work with the Committee on the Grant of Honours Decorations and Medals, with a view to implementing the award as soon as possible.  

4.        Enshrine the military covenant in UK Law.

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 for people out of work

Introduce National Service (military) for people out of work for longer than 18 months / 2 years. This would eas ethe strain on the military, provide the unemployed with skills and experience, and GET THEM A JOB!!!! Then they'll be actually contributing to society (and the world…?) and not scrounging off benefits.

Bring Back National Service.

Bring Back National Service, we should have this brought back and people must serve at least two years in the armed services, between the ages of 16 and 25.

Give the younger generation some self worth and back up our troops who are having a hard time just now.

Prison sentences could be served in the army instead of prison

Most criminals are young males. Young males from broken homes, with poor education and poor future prospects. They want nice things, but sadly resort to crime to get it.

Currently, when such a person commits a crime, they are either sent to prison for a few months (where they are among like minded criminals who "normalise" their criminal activities and teach them more advanced methods) or they are let back into the same communities that they have terrorised for months, on the tag system, where they can proudly show off their "tag" as a badge of honour to their peers.

It needs to change. Ken Clarke said that prisons aren't working. He's right. They're overcrowded with people whose lives are on pause, sleeping and waiting for food whilst watching tv' and playing on PlayStations.

We need to instill a sense of national pride and respect into these people. We need to place them into an environment that teaches them the skills they never learned. We need them to be surrounded by people they can look up to and have respect for. We need the condition to be "if you can't learn to work as part of this team, it could cost you your life tomorrow".

Conscript these wrongdoers into the army for the length of their sentence. Give them a uniform and boots and ship them out to the nearest drill camp in preparation for their duty of service either in the uk or abroad.

Let them complete an NVQ in engineeering, vehicle mechanics, catering or similar…basically teach them a trade whilst in the army. Let them learn from our respected soldiers before they return to our communties and let them come back into society reformed, re-educated and with a new found respect as well as a brighter future ahead.

National Service and Immigration

If a person wishes to come into the UK and become resident they shoud have to do 2 years National Service before being given right to remain.  They will then have shown a commitment to this country and would have earned their right to stay.  The same rule should apply to assylum seekers.

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
