New Labour - Community slavery.

That old "Community Service" idea is trotted on out again.
Prime Minister Gordon Brown has pledged to ensure every young person has done 50 hours of voluntary work by the time they are 19 years old.
Mr Brown said a promise to bring in compulsory community service would be a part of his next election manifesto.
Ah but the problem with voluntary work is that is just that, voluntary.

That is where someone offers to help out, donates their time for nothing. When you make people work for nothing, it is called slavery.
Under the scheme, the work may include helping charities and is likely to become part of the school curriculum.
The scheme would be woven into plans to make everyone stay in education or training until the age of 18 by 2011.
Fine if they are hellbent on losing the next election then go right ahead, might as well smear some opponents as well while Labour are at it. Oh hang on they have already done that.
Mr Brown told the News of the World newspaper: "It is my ambition to create a Britain in which there is a clear expectation that all young people will undertake some service to their community, and where community service will become a normal part of growing up in Britain.

"And, by doing so, the contributions of each of us will build a better society for all of us."
The prime minister added: "That would mean young people being expected to contribute at least 50 hours of community service by the time they have reached the age of 19.
Oh and if people refuse to take part in this state slavery system? Maybe a re-education camp, or some form of forcing them to work at the point of a gun?

Well there go's the youth vote at a stroke. It won't take a genius to work out that a vote for the fascists means 50 hours min enforced work for the state. 50 hours of work, for nothing.

How very 1984, Gordon has shown he is a disgusting, totalitarian fuckhead.
"This will build on the platform provided by citizenship classes as they develop in our schools. But because the greater part of what I envisage as community service takes place outside the school day, it will require the close involvement of local community organisations and charities."
Mr Brown said the work would also be linked to a "clear system of accreditation" so that young people would be able mark their achievements gained through volunteering.
He added: "By building from compulsory citizenship studies in the 14-16 curriculum, we can create an expectation of national youth community service."
Gordon Brown first proposed the idea of a National Youth Service to channel teenagers into voluntary work last year.
Now where did I hear that idea first touted? Oh yes a certain Austrian by the name of Adolf Hitler who came up with the Hitler Youth. The Hitler Youth League of German Worker Youth.

Charities, you mean of course the taxpayer funded charities, the quango's in all but name. Now will adition to the cash they get, have state slaves to push their agenda and carry out their work for nothing.
It is due to be formally launched in September, and would become compulsory if Labour were re-elected.
If re-elected, about as likely as finding out that the Moon really is made of cheese.

Good luck Gordon, can you start with the muslim neighborhoods then, the ones suckling at the taxpayer. Might as well get 50 hours from them.

it's either banned or compulsory said...

Deluded authoritarian wanker.
I did a shedload more than 50 hours community work before age 19 but if any council twat had tried to force me to do so I would have told him/her to Fuck Right Off.
As suggested, encourage their lunacy to ensure the hatred of voting generations yet to come.
