    You have read correctly. We always cringed when National Service was mooted. It's why I think some kind of social service should be an option.

    Maybe a reply of 'Why do THEY feel the need to create such an opportunity at the same time as $cr*wing the nation for all it's got' or hasn't got.

    Fair game I say.

    Maybe they can't afford one because of the budget..... Either that or they have a crush on Mr Darling...... Must be the eyebrows.

    What? It isn't related to a crime? It would be a universal part of education - much like Sweden already successfully runs.

    Why thank you.

    Unfortunately, the NHS isnt a nice place to work anymore...not the blood and guts, im fine with that, just the polictics and policies that came with it! Just all about statistics...like everything else these days. I only did adult nursing, i imagine childrens is a lot better.

    Definately a character builder though!

    Ive washed dead people......

    Definitely bring back National Service - now I'm too old to have to do it myself
