Now let me understand this. A kid, probably sponsored by his parents, is walking to raise money from the public to pay a debt. he incurred. I guess something is better than nothing, but is there something wrong with this picture?

Yeah it would be much better if he just sat around on street corners mugging old grannies for money to pay for his vodka and weed.


The boy did something wrong. Now it looks like he's trying to make amends don't knock him for that, unless you know different

Iam not knocking him , iam impressed with what he is doing ,I think this lad just did a silly thing , he's not a bad Boy who is heading for a life of crime .

Its just that so many youngsters don't seem to realise that working is what pays for living , and being a student and taking a year out etc is just an easy way of being unemployed . My older kids seem to be the same TBH they think they can have all they want in life before they have worked for it , and the apprentice i had also had the same attitude .

I agree , sadly i didn't get the chance to make my mark on my older two due to a divorce and an ex that was a total bunny boiler .
If fathers for justice had existed back then i would have been there on the bridge .

The so called futhar education system doesn't help iether with the EMA grant that seems to just massage the unemployment figures .
