Introduction And Thoughts




  1. 1. Do you agree with me?

    • Yes
    • No

Hey all,

I always wanted to make a blog but was fearful that no one would read it or I would end up with just messages of abuse. I finally made one but I am assuming no one is going to read it. It is going to be a little of a rant, a bit contraversial and very comtemptory.

Things on my mind:

Ending of EMA

If you are British or a follower of English news you would heard about that the Conservatives cutting the EMA payments. EMA are a set amount of money paid to student between the ages of 16-19 for full attendence in college depending upon the wages the parents earn, the students maybe paid between ten to thirty pounds. Anyway the Conservatives are cutting out the EMA payment as part of their coalition in order to reduce the deficit. Students are complaining about these cuts.

I am a 17 year old student and I recieve thirty pounds a week which helps towards stationary and travel costs. I come from a very very poor background, as in my family earnings are ZERO POUNDS a year. I looked at this and under much comtempt by other students I admit that I support this cut, It will cause me issue but this is my reasoning:

I would happily lose thirty pounds a week if the money causes the economy improves, so when I leave college I actually have a chance of getting a decent job.
