Fuck off please.
now i just get more money at uni
if i wasn't a boy, i'd have had nothing to play with.
but i rarely actually got it becuase i couldn't be bothered to turn up ofr my japanese culture class. i get a fortune for going to uni though.
bunch of cunts
All that delicious free money, about £10 of which goes on bus pass and food for a week. £20 per week for fun. Yes please.
I love benefits.
i didnt get it, but it didnt mean my parents gave me £30 a week. i had to work, and people i know who got emi just used it instead of going to work.
the system of getting it is shite anyway, my mate whos dad is loaded lives with his mum so the household income wasnt much so he got EMI, but his dad just gave him a shitload of money too
but having better off parents than those who do get it, does mean you are alot more likely to have non direct financial support from them, its just trying to readdress the balance it would be impossible to make a perfect system
Kids who get EMA due to their parents being self employed and *technically* earning less than whatever the limit is, when in real actuality they are rich as hell.
most of whom were pretty middle class. Whereas people who's parents earned enough to get by, but we're no means well off, were forced to get jobs at the Co-op for a shitty wage.
All you lucky sods with your together-parents.
Spare a fucking thought for us with our broken homes, you snobbish evils.
All I wanted was a family. But I couldn't have one, so they gave me £30 a week.
you got to know how a conservatives mind works..
it seemed like pretty much everyone who got it has divorced parents. they were mostly all pretty well off.
