It doesn't have to be a choice between getting into debt or putting food on the table. It could be choice between paying the rent or cutting back on fancy mobile phone contracts, subscription TV, smoking, and trips to the pub or buying alcohol, meals out, pandering to spoilt children or even making do with second hand things until they are able or prepared to, dare I say it, find a way of making or earning some money for themselves. I was a child in the 1950s my parents were poor and my brother and I were clothed in second hand clothes mother bought via a clothes bank. Yes, they still had to be paid for. My first bike was salvaged from the tip and we made our own entertainment. I left school just turned 15 old and worked for £3.75 a week, of which my mother took over half for my keep. I grew up fully understanding the value of money, worked hard, two jobs, one full time the other part time and made every penny count. I was just 21 years old when I bought my first house. I am now retired with several properties and am financially comfortable, but only because I continue to watch what I spend, I have never had a high income. If I can do it with no education or inheritance, then so can others. The "must have it now" expect everything for nothing generation has to change. The problem is caused by the state making things far too easy for those who prefer not to pay thier own way in life. It is long overdue for people to take responsibility for themselves. Sure there are times when some of us need help but this should be for the short term (unless they are disabled) and certainly should no longer be a lifestyle choice.
