Citizens Army

There is much talk in the media about the possibility of creating a citizen army that could be trained up to help should there be further escalations overseas that may compromise our security.

My understanding is that it would be a voluntary basis but from what I have heard in the media and on talk radio stations there is very little appetite from the youngsters of today and any such army would need to be compulsory.

Compulsory would not be such a bad thing as on occasions I feel we are lacking discipline and a sense of pride from some youngsters.

It works perfectly in other countries and gives the youngsters a feeling of pride and engagement.
