Self-respecting Scouts and Scout Leaders ought to feel free to ignore this foolish guidance.
A Boy Scout without a pocket-knife = an Unprepared Scout.
Boy Scouts in most of the world is now co-ed. I was in Scotland 8 years ago with a bunch of Scouts, and was amazed at what is happening with Scouting around the world. Many are taking God out of the Scout Oath and promise.Our boys were trying to hit on two danish beauties, but they turned out to be a lesbian couple.
Just another sign of what socialism brings.
The British bulldog is now a poodle.
I think we ought to provide some feedback. It's the least us old Scouts can do.
I still have mine from 50+ years ago. Not in as good shape as the one in the photo.
How could a Scout NOT have a knife? Oh, this is insanely PC England. What a shame and pity.
I worked hard selling either magazines subs or chocolate bars to get my sheath knife. I was very proud of it.
What would the formerly brave and stalwart English think of American Scouts going to summer came and learning to shoot real guns like I did as a kid? They’d be soiling their pant (or panties).
Sad to see a formerly great country going to hell and kissing Muslim butts.
Of course, forks can also be used as weapons. And bricks, bats, hammers, chainsaws, pipes, rocks, sticks, axes, boards, hacksaws, glass bottles, tire irons, shovels, and hoes are all dangerous. Let's ban all of them!
And let's keep those dangerous packs of Boy Scouts off the street. Who knows when they might attack an elderly lady at a cross walk?
I wonder if someday there will be a Heller like challenge to the insane knife laws in the United States. In some counties, it is a felony to carry a knife with a blade that exceeds 1.5 inches. Whole classes of knives are banned in many states, supposedly for their weapon like qualities. A knife is a tool, but if the state wishes to define it as a weapon, then the 2nd amendment should apply - after all, arms always meant more than just guns, it meant weapons.
(MAJOR SARCASM ALERT!) We have it on good authority that the Boy Scout Council in the Bay area has been sued to force them to add this new and distinctive badge to the Scout program there:
The new standard Scout Swiss Army Spoon.
“Scouting helps to prepare young people with valuable life skills, while keeping them safe by not carrying knives.”
This line had me laughing.
Leave it to UK scouting to turn bright boys into nice young women.
So they are no longer Scouts, but little sissy boys?
I actually think it would be better to teach boys the responsible use of a knife rather than simply ban them.
Time for a new poster.
Sucking the fun out of everything.
