If yobbish kids act this way outside the armed forces, they will be the same within the services.
The idea that this will work is preposterous. The armed forces has become softer on recruits and service personel in the last 10 years (even more so after incidents like Deepcut). Some people will not understand the idea of discipline and respect because they don't have to understand these values. They will continue to be happy with their lives, getting smoked up, drinking etc... and eventually having a few children of their own to cause the same social problems that they themselves have caused whilst living in culture where individuals are financially better off on welfare with children than to actual work for a living.
Tory youth plan may be compulsory
School-leavers could be forced to do community work under a Conservative government, David Cameron has said.
He said full details had yet to be worked out but options included a compulsory scheme lasting four months, with lottery cash one funding option.

I must say for the ''bad'' rap the Tories get, Mr Cameron is indeed giving radical reform a good go

I was made to do CCF at private school for about a year. I found out that if you point an empty gun at the cadet leader and say you’re not prepared to do this anymore you get lots of extra free time. This is what I did, and the school did nothing (yeah I could of been expelled but there was to it than that, which I’m not going into to).
