This could be quite interesting actually. And NOT necessarily the Army before anybody gets in a flutter!
There is, currently, a proposal going through Parliament. It’s the National Service Bill (HC Bill 32) and, if certain articles within it are kept to – which they should be by law, as this will also be law – I honestly can’t see a problem with it.
It basically states that, when made law, people between the ages of eighteen and twenty-six will be expected to do one year’s National Service. Now, I can see some people reacting in horror as they envision the (male) youth of our nation being forced into the army. I can also see others loving the idea of our youth being forced into the army. But that’s not the whole story. It’s the one that the naysayers are concentrating on, as well as the fact that some of the time spent will be residential. Yes, they get sent away from home.
