I don't have a problem with the decision to recruit more Foreign Nationals into our Military, if they're willing and proud to serve the country they live in then why not. And quite frankly, I know this is a generalisation but I'm only speaking from my experiences, I don't think the majority of current young people here today are interested in the Forces and I wouldn't want them defending me anyway! It's sad, when I was at school, half my class wanted to join the Army, Navy or RAF, now it's all about the next drunken night out or What's the cushiest job I can get doing as little as possible! as I said that is a generalisation and obviously doesn't apply to all, but I would welcome people from other nations living here who want to serve, they've served with us in the past with distinction, Gurkhas, Polish, Czechs, Indians, all our Commonwealth colleagues and many more!!!
