Rewarding the Delinquents

If you were homeless I would imagine your survival instincts might over-ride your desire to have a vote over the next toilet tax. Jurby would be like a free holiday camp for a homeless person.. 

Hence the second part of post...

A trip to Blackpool does seem somewhat excessive for 15 hours work. How many young ones do you know who earn £15 an hour? Good on them for giving the homeless man food though.

Lazy fuckers. If they'd have done 40 hours they might have got to DisneyLand.

Not really.  There are a lot of downsides to being in prison, hence why the majority try to stay out of it.

I think they should take the bull by the horns and reinstate the birch for a fixed 12 month period. Let's take it from there...

Why, do you like the idea of small boys being made to bare their bottoms to those in authority?

Bet there's some do-gooder airhead with zero life experience, zero qualifications and an ego the size of a planet who's read a couple of books behind this lame idea.

It would make a change from those in authority (our political masters and the CS high earners ) 'mooning' at the taxpayers  ( an almost universal sign of disrespect I'm given to understand):lol::flowers:

That is probably a couple of books more than you have read...

Interesting article in the paper about a group of youths giving food to a homeless man in Blackpool.

These lads had been rewarded with a trip to Blackpool for 'giving up' 15 hours of their free time carrying out work at the Sea Terminal and the surrounding area. It's been pointed out elsewhere that some of those in the photo had been responsible for some of the trouble in Onchan and other areas, so were they really giving their time freely or was it some type of community punishment.

If it was a community punishment, why the reward with a free trip to Blackpool.

A trip to Blackpool isn't a reward by any stretch of the imagination.

They are kids, for whatever reasons, the kid bit passed them over too soon. Let them have a day at the sea side, if they'd had a few more only a few years ago they may not have been there now. Let them see what life is really like for some, what's on offer for those who fall by the wayside and cannot take control of the longer life ahead of them.
