Darwen MP Jake Berry backs ‘good citizens’ scheme

First published in Darwen

DARWEN MP Jake Berry is supporting a scheme to see more young people become good citizens.

The National Citizen Service is a scheme for 16-year-olds first proposed by David Cameron in 2005 which brings together teenagers from different backgrounds in the summer after they have taken their GCSEs.

Mr Berry said: “It is a fantastic idea and I hope that eventually all children will be able to benefit.”

Being a good citizen isn't difficult. Just stay on the right side of the law and treat others as you would like to be treated.

How about Jake Berry supporting a scheme that makes all politicians stick to the promises they make to get us to vote for them, and show some support for the majority of the people who aren't millionaires.
