Play your part

Cato reports on an evil organisation recruiting in our schools.
"We oppose aggressively recruiting children who are perhaps at a quite vulnerable stage in their lives. It's not appropriate to go into schools and colleges and tell children that it's a great career and a great opportunity to see the world, especially if there's a not a lot of information available about what it's like..."

Goodness me! Tory Heaven was shocked by these words. What could be the heinous profession being touted by evil childsnatchers in our schools? Is it perhaps that of a travel rep for Club 18-30 holidays? It would indeed be worrying to expose our children to working in the immoral environment of constant hedonism and self indulgence in far off parts of the globe to which such travel reps are exposed. Or is it maybe recruiting for VSO (Voluntary Service Oversees), an organisation which through seductive cinema and TV ads persuades 'vulnerable' young people to work oversees only for them to discover that they are marooned in dangerous and badly paid employment in godforsaken johnny foreigner hellholes? No, good readers, it is neither of these wicked professions.

In fact, the concerned local Councillor explains more about this wicked profession, by telling us that (shock horror!) children in deprived areas are being targeted by these evil career peddlers:
"Our concern is that ... recruitment may be targeting schools in more deprived areas where children, arguably, are not going to have as many career options available."

The Englishman points out that this "comes after a similar proposal was passed by the Educational Institute of Scotland, Scotland's largest teachers' union..." and that there is a reason why these kids do not have "as many career options available."
Probably not got many career options because they haven't been taught to read and write by their trendy teachers.

Sadly, we know this to be true. Given how badly our councillors and teachers do their jobs, shouldn't they concentrate their efforts on finding out why they are failing hundreds of thousands of people a year; why they are having their lives ruined by cunting teachers and corrupt fucking councillors?

The army is hopelessly overstretched and being fucked over by our scum politicians and the EU.
Even more fun than that is the news that they have paved the way for an EU Common Defence Policy. Yes, boys and girls. Our armed forces will be under the command of not the nice lady in the hats who lives in Buckingham Palace, but the bad man with the orange tan who you never elected and can't get rid of! That's fun, isn't it! That's Democratic and sensible and a jolly nice idea?

Well, it's not, really, is it. I tend to think that the main function of a government should be that it can protect the state as an entity, which means that it has the ability to 'blow shit up' should the need arise. There are very few areas I would like the government to get involved in, but I think that foreign policy and defence are the ones which are important. So now it looks like it won't be long before our armed forces, badly treated and under paid and yet quite simply the best in the world, will be under the command of some Euro-Prick. We shouldn't be surprised. If the Control Key on my lap top was working properly I would put in the link from Lord Pearson of Rannoch about the deal signed at Farnborough Airshow some years ago, and also point to the demise of the historical regiments which have been replaced with ones on a regional level, to nicely fit in with the idea of the EU.

And now I would ask you to do your bit for the country: write to this fucking bitch-whore, cock-sucking shitbag of a windmill-hugging turd councillor and tell her, politely but in no uncertain terms, just exactly what you think of her: maggie.chapman@edinburgh.gov.uk

Perhaps you would like to invite her to shut her fucking face? Or maybe to drown herself in the Firth of Forth. Or maybe we could club together to buy an ex-army man to shoot her in the head?

You really think Barry George is going to win his appeal then...? ;)

Shocking really. Clearly according to these people teenagers shouldn't be allowed to make their own decisions. So rather than let the recruiting sergeants enter our schools and allow the kids the chance to make an informed decision, simply don't expose them to the information at all.

It's bloody annoying when people in a position of authority over young minds try and foist their morals onto them.

I remember being at school in Scotland as a lad and one Modern Studies teacher 'teaching' us that Proportional Representation was the best method of electing a government. The same teacher later 'taught' us there was 'no honour' in a military death. Teachers should teach the facts, not their opinions.

Kipling:

I went into a public-'ouse to get a pint o'beer,
The publican 'e up an' sez, "We serve no red-coats here."
The girls be'ind the bar they laughed an' giggled fit to die,
I outs into the street again an' to myself sez I:

O it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, go away";
But it's ``Thank you, Mister Atkins,' when the band begins to play,
The band begins to play, my boys, the band begins to play,
O it's ``Thank you, Mr. Atkins,' when the band begins to play.

I went into a theatre as sober as could be,
They gave a drunk civilian room, but 'adn't none for me;
They sent me to the gallery or round the music-'alls,
But when it comes to fightin', Lord! they'll shove me in the stalls!

For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, wait outside";
But it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide,
The troopship's on the tide, my boys, the troopship's on the tide,
O it's "Special train for Atkins" when the trooper's on the tide.

Yes, makin' mock o' uniforms that guard you while you sleep
Is cheaper than them uniforms, an' they're starvation cheap;
An' hustlin' drunken soldiers when they're goin' large a bit
Is five times better business than paradin' in full kit.

Then it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy how's yer soul?"
But it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll,
The drums begin to roll, my boys, the drums begin to roll,
O it's "Thin red line of 'eroes" when the drums begin to roll.

We aren't no thin red 'eroes, nor we aren't no blackguards too,
But single men in barricks, most remarkable like you;
An' if sometimes our conduck isn't all your fancy paints:
Why, single men in barricks don't grow into plaster saints;

While it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Tommy, fall be'ind,"
But it's "Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind,
There's trouble in the wind, my boys, there's trouble in the wind,
O it's "Please to walk in front, sir," when there's trouble in the wind.

You talk o' better food for us, an' schools, an' fires an' all:
We'll wait for extry rations if you treat us rational.
Don't mess about the cook-room slops, but prove it to our face
The Widow's Uniform is not the soldier-man's disgrace.
Pocket Dictionary wrote in the comments at the Scotsman:

Kipling

For it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' "Chuck him out, the brute!"
But it's "Saviour of 'is country," when the guns begin to shoot;
An' it's Tommy this, an' Tommy that, an' anything you please;
But Tommy ain't a bloomin' fool - you bet that Tommy sees!

Good on you for highlighting this anti-army Lefty nonsense. If we don't take a stand on this the army is going to suffer ever worse recruiting problems than it already is.

This is the first time I have discovered your blog (I'm a fairly new blogger), but you are now definitely on my list!

Killing and death is bad.

Please, Tommy, protect us from death and killing.

I pay my taxes (in NZ and UK) for schools and soldiers. I get better value from the soldiers.
Is it because they still have pride in what they do? Or is it discipline? Dunno. I raise my glass to them boys either way.
