I'm not blaming the poor, because it's a concomitant of their overall situation but bad money management is often at the heart of it. Driving back from Stansted last night with my son when his gf phoned. She wanted him to lend her money to lend to a work colleague who has got herself into debt.

The cause of this debt? She threw a lavish Halloween party. Well I regard it as lavish when you are buying kids special outfits for a single evening when your rent is overdue. Of course there are all sorts of pressures on parents, many of whom are virtually kids themselves. It's the system innit?
