The article quickly becomes comical, as the BBC writers try to take a woman with many options and portray her as a woman with no options, all because the government reduced the free money she is receiving.
- "I couldn't go to college without EMA. My travel costs are £70 a month, without it I don't know what I'd have done. I didn't know who I could go to in college, and I didn't want to rely on my family."
The laughs keep coming throughout the piece:
- "I began looking for jobs, but the hours were unsociable."
The BBC is moving full speed ahead, no reason to stop:
- "I had a friend who'd been trying to get me to join his escort agency since I was 16. He was telling me stories about how much I could earn, how the hours would fit around me, that I could control who I saw, when I saw them and how often.
"It just sounded more desirable. I couldn't see any other option."
The remainder of the article talks about those terrible government budget cuts. The BBC's goal here is to increase taxation on the people of the UK. It's standard BBC fare.
