    Not seen if anyone else has posted , but just read that President Macron has brought back National service to France . All eligible will do 1month service .

    Personally think it would be a great idea in this country and not too much hardship for everyone involved . Discuss !

      So people are going to be locked up for a month without having committed any crimes, and that's good?

      The Tories failed to capture too many young voters last time out, and I can't see this vote losing suggestion doing anything other than losing them more votes.

      About the only people in the UK who would be in favour would be Brexit supporters given their desire to turn the clock back to the 1950s, combined with the fact they are too old to actually get called up.
      If this did go ahead, stand by for a national surge in bone spurs to enable people to be given a medical exemption.

      1 month? You can't learn a great deal in a month, and will your job be kept open for you during that month?
      Is it straight from school at 18 and so defer uni?

      When people are rude to you, they reveal who they are, not who you are.

      Are you suggesting that France would also like to leave the EU?

      You've spent a lot of time chopping off my trigger finger?
      Mackay: I'm going to book you for that.
      Cooper: You what?
      Mackay: What's your name, Cooper?
      Cooper: Cooper.
