Bring back National Service

STRICT DISCPILINE: National Service.
STRICT DISCPILINE: National Service.

AS most of my scribble followers are aware, I don’t generally enter into personal rapport with correspondents. As much as I truly do appreciate the wonderful and varied feedback that I receive, getting involved with individual readers has, I have learned through past experience, usually been more time consuming than productive.

However I do read all the mail that arrives to me personally and I’m always interested in letters received by the EWN, especially those pertaining to the column that is published on our excellent ‘Your Opinion’ letters page.  This was certainly the case last week. Midst a positive deluge of mail supporting my ‘What If’ manifesto, the one that managed to find the ‘Letter of the week’ spot was, of course, a strictly minority, derogatory opinion.

The gentleman disagreed with a number of my suggestions, and I did indeed take umbrage at his efforts to depict me as something of a cross between Donald Trump and Adolf Hitler. Firstly, my suggestion that we bring back National Service was not to teach our youngsters to kill people, they’re already learning that perfectly well in Civvy Street! It was to instill them with discipline and respect for their fellow human beings; rescue them from the gang infested streets, and give them the opportunity to learn a trade and engage in wider life experiences.

The immigrant camps I suggested were not a resurgence of the likes of Auschwitz or Belsen, but places with full medical facilities, factories, acceptable living conditions and places of learning. Somewhere to place illegals and those without papers; enabling them to live and work without disruption of local society, until they either earned the opportunity of becoming British citizens, or be returned back from whence they came.  The ‘boot camps’ would be to bring young and rampant criminals into line.

Strict disciplinary institutions that would strike fear into young thugs and encourage them to attempt anything (even work!) to stay out of these establishments forever.  So, to this gentleman who wrote in, I most respectfully ask you to read my blurb more carefully and not try to instill it with your own, utterly incorrect interpretations. Thanks a lot.

I see yet another ‘suicide’ has prevented a high profile trial that could have incriminated members of the ‘hierarchy.’ Jeffery Epstein joins the ranks of those whose deaths are terribly opportune for yet more slimy highly placed toe rags, who, believe me, will stop at nothing to preserve their privileged existence. The tragic, still mysterious death of scientist David Kelly was another.  Stephen Ward also ‘took his own life’ the night before he was prepared to blow the whistle on some of the highest in the land, which more than probably included royalty.

Heaven knows how many others have been quietly ‘neutralised’ to cover the tracks of the elite. And while we are about it, have the authorities ceased to investigate the sordid goings on at Elm House? Plenty of ‘high profiles’ involved there I can tell you. Oops, careful Leapy, don’t want you ‘committing suicide’ just yet!

Keep the faith.
Love Leapy


  1. Keep saying it as it is Leapy! You know when you have the simpering, misty eyed liberals foaming at the mouth, when all they can sling at you is “RACIST”. The usual, tired, weary response of the leftys.

  2. This is rich coming from the man who did everything in his powers to get out of HIS national service. Read the book. It is all there.

  3. If you knew what you were talking about Johnathan you would relise none of the Pop Singers or virtually none ever did national service… Tommy Steele had a weak Heart. Still not showed up. Marty Wilde did not do N/S as he had a Hammer Top. Leapy you say you know he did not ??? Only one I know of who did was Terry Dean as he wanted to do an Elvis. But strain to much on him & he had Breakdown & was discharged. But I am sure all managers knew a Doctor who would write an illness to escape N/S. I found it a complete waste of time servicing air camera’s once every 3 months. When the Beatles & all Groups arrived. That was because no more National Service to Break up the Groups………. So get your facts right Johnathan before you next have a Dig a Leapy

    • Mr uktboy. As I said above Read his self penned biography. There are three books in all, available on Kindle. The relevant book is titled “Any one who doesn’t want to take their clothes off, can leave” Chapter five The great escape. He goes on for a number of pages about how he dodged National Service. Better yet ask him. You will save the cost of buying it. Once again you completely miss the point which has nothing to do with all the other characters who dodged service. My point was to demonstrate the absolute hypocracy presented by his demanding National service to be re introduced for others given that he, himself went to great pains to avoid it himself. My facts are straight unless of course he is making it all up. Your statement is a good example of shooting off your mouth before you get the facts straight. You make yourself look like a fool.
