"The Tories are Nazis" - tch. I don't know what I was thinking - I suppose it would explain why the Daily Mail supports them, but they're not really the same - the Nazis at least had an ideology. And Hitler was a vegetarian, so he's automatically a better human being than David Cameron.

There would theoretically be safeguards against people being pressured into doing it, of course, and some kind of rules on the work that you would undertake - nothing hazardous for which you were insufficiently skilled, for example, and nothing which violated your moral codes - but otherwise you'd be the responsibility of whomever saw fit to purchase your service and they'd be tasked with feeding, sheltering, and seeing to your general health, which presumably would include your personal security and require some kind of dedicated and secured housing complex in which you could reside when not working off your debt.
You would have more dignity, more pride, and more self-determination than offered by a life on benefits. I think the time and the national mood is right for an idea like this.
