If elected the Conservative government have vowed to bring back national service

GB News host Bev Turner has been left fuming at the pledge from the Prime Minister that stated if the Conservatives were re-elected they would bring back national service.

Eighteen-year-olds would be able to apply for one of 30,000 full-time military placements or volunteer one weekend a month carrying out community service.

Speaking about the promise on GB News, Bev said: "At first I had a moment where I thought 'oh brilliant. This is just priming the next generation, prepare yourself that you may have to go to war and something is on the horizon'.

"However, you look at the details of it and it is pathetic. It is saying that if you get through certain criteria, as in you are not overweight and you are fit enough, you can do a year in the military. You can do it anyway, if you don't want to do that you can spend one weekend a month helping your local community.

"Again you can do that anyway? There is going to be no way that this can be mandated, what a pointless headline grabber. It is hideous."
