Punishing adults by taking away their income is the grown up version of punishing children by taking away their pocket, but there is usually a reason for the punishment.
Young people have lost the Education Maintenance Allowance, they are having their fines for going to university increase threefold and they are facing unemployment levels of 20%.
Why are they being singled out for this systematic punishment? Perhaps the coalition are keen on the school of hard knocks. Personally, I'm keen on supporting future generations to get a good education and a good start in life.
