Tweet of the day - 12 Dec 2010

From Guido, on the to-be-scrapped Education Maintenance Allowance (EMA):
"Have only just discovered what EMA is, effectively dole for teenagers. Presumably it was one of Gordon's crackpot ideas."
Quite a good assessment in a way, but not so much crackpot as yet another way to get a whole sector of British accustomed to State hand-outs and at least partial dependency upon them. It was simply a way to 'buy' future votes for Labour at your and my expense from general taxation.
