Government funded boozing?

Has Government research been carried out to discover how teenagers are spending their weekly Educational Maintenance Allowance of up to £30!?!

"The money’s paid directly into your bank account. Once it’s there, you can use it to pay for whatever you like – for example, books, travel or equipment."

Under-18s may face new drink ban.

What is it with politicians and the urge to meddle?

I simply cannot believe that that bunch of idiots in parliament haven't realised that banning something doesn't work and indeed makes it more desirable. They can't even prevent under 18's drinking never mind 18 year olds.

Quiet man, would anyone vote for a politician who had only removed legislation over one Parliament!?!

Given that so many politicians are lawyers, is it any surprise that they legislate for everything!?!

I see the Government is now funding the unemployed to start up their own blogs.

Wish I could sit around all day fiddling with my laptop while claiming benefits and council tax.

Nah I have to work a 70 week to even scrape a living.
