Bring Back Borstal

Anyone else watching this dross?  I had great hopes that we'd see some Chavs actually having some respect beaten into them. Wishful thinking I suppose.... instead we are just seeing it confirmed that they can do as they please. 
 
I saw more discipline at Sunday school!

No, Not that Dr Z.  Please don't bother PM'ing me for 'Price Lists'  You have the wrong guy.

    Nah I gave it a miss. The fact that it's on ITV1 at 9pm primetime means that it can't possibly be controversial or watchable. Mostly acting I suspect.

    I realise in this human rights day and age they can't lay a finger on them, but the levels of misconduct and total absence of any kind of physical discipline whatsoever makes a mockery of the whole 'borstal' aspect.   I was explaining to my son (who thought it all looked quite fun and couldn't see why it was a big deal .... at 11!)  that every time they opened their mouths in the manner they were they would have had the crap beaten out of them in a real borstal! 
     
       Yes I know, we can't hurt the poor darlings these days... so don't call it "Bring Back Borstal"  - Call it "Bring Back Holiday Camp for delicate Naughty Boys" 
     
     I don't see why they couldn't use proper Psychiatric & Prison guards and have them "legally restrain" them every time they open their mouths,  instead what we are seeing its these little ****s running rings around the Borstal staff, who come across like poor babysitters.

    I was interested to know the re conviction rate of offenders after a stay at borstal, it sounds like it did the job.
    Maybe the youth back then just had more respect for their elders and they did a lot of growing up in these places and left as men.

    I've been in an out three times, once for a fairly long period and it was always the same faces some released on the Friday and back on the Monday for another crime it's complete madness.

    I've not been in trouble for a long time, it's called growing up and any man that repeatable ends up in prisons is just a man child.

    I haven't seen it though if it's on ITV it's probably sensationalist chav fodder anyway. Half of them will no doubt be turned into 'celebtities'. If we must have a TV series, remember Bad Lads Army? Something along those lines would be better suited for these no-hopers.

    In REAL life a year's National Service should be installed for all young offenders, not Community Service where they only stand around painting out graffiti and smoking.
