It's no holiday camp either as they are expected to work hard to earn their keep. click here

Perhaps something of a similar nature would teach our young and persistent delinquents a hard lesson or two in good citizenship. What's your opinion on this? TC.

What a brilliant idea. I would think many of us would drive the buses to the docks if asked.

We wouldn't dare to do that... human rights an' all that... but I'd drive the bus;)

Good idea, brilliant in fact.

Don't we already have it?

Its called 'Working in the Community'. Cold in the winter, warm in the summer ;o)

Good idea.

At least he gets to handle beaver!

But seriously, it wouldn't do any harm to the dead eyed, knuckle dragging zombies who congregate outside a local pizza take away that I have to drive past on the way home from work, who seem to think that walking across the road and back without looking is fun?

Cruel and unusual punishment.

Not permitted under HR legislation (and probably health & safety as well!).

I think it is a more preferable punishment to locking them up as our prisons have become a "school for criminality" The Detention Centres we used to run were way more successful as a deterrent to re-offending than any of the other type of prisons.
