In one of those dumb ideas that, like marching the misbehaving to cashpoints to fine them on the spot, make a big splash on announcement but are hopefully never heard of again, Lord Goldsmith reckons that making school-leavers swear an oath of allegiance to the Monarchy will give them the sense of citizenship that they are so obviously currently lacking. Which is really one of those special kinds of dumb that reeks of the committee suggesting it staying up late the night before it had to be shipped to the printers and writing down the first half-arsed thought that comes to mind.

I can see it resonating with the Prime Minister though. Maybe we can make the pledge while having our ID Cards grafted to our foreheads?
