    The sad thing is, comrade, the ad is a bit more honest and up front about what new recruits might face than some of the tosh they’ve put out in the past – such as join the army to get an education, learn new skills or discover a sense of adventure. And sure anyway, doesn’t media studies tell us that the media don’t have any proven effect on anyone? So rest easy and consider a more worrying alternative: national service. Objectors, conscientious or otherwise, will be kettled at dawn and clobbered by the nearest friendly bobby.
