    Not quite national service as we tend to think of it.....

    What I can never understand is why all the good charity workers and/or government employees (fire/police whoever) are made to put up with stroppy teenagers that don't want to be there and end up just causing double the work for said volunteers/employees. The work is difficult enough as it is.

    They can put everyone of their young blokes through special forces training afaic, it still won't overcome the flaw in their national character which causes them to drop what they're carrying and put their hands up at the first whiff of strife.

    Nope, the unfortunate thing is, is that I can see other countries following suit too.

    not gonna bother defending it, hope it gets bounced around various institutions with no real action like the Data Retention Directive.

    This is the kind of law which you can't implement unless you literally turn towards authoritarianism.

    I'm not condoning the law but just asking, with the internets lack of copyright protection does this not mean that something needs to give on these laws, where either online needs to start obeying the 'hardcopy' laws or else current copyright laws need to be relaxed? Or you end up with 2 systems.

    Nope, but the EU is full of authoritarians, so expect it to happen. Disgusting.

    I mean it controls ~no physical force independently of its member states, so it'd be doing pretty well to implement a police state.
