Personally, I think it's unfair.

I'm disgustingly jealous of everybody that gets it. Therefore it's unfair.

Some students in my form group attend school for ema registering in the morning and afternoon just to get £30 hardly attend class yet receive their bonus

Personally the idea is great but the system in place to provide the money is rubbish

I dislike EMA, but only because I don't qualify for it and I'm jealous. :P It's not like I get any more pocket money than my friends with lower earning families.

Your parents' income should be divided by the amount of children and THAT is how it should be allocated. One of five with parents earning 40k pa. will get nothing yet an only child with parents who earn 30k pa. will get £40 a month! Where's the justice in that?

All of you moaning about this issue are obviously not getting it. EMA is extra cash to me and the main objective its actually set for is ideal despite how many use it not for education.

To all the EMA haters think of it this way if you got extra cash offered to you then you would take it. Who cares if the money gets misused and the sytem is unfair this is how it goes.

People who get it = love it
People who don't = hate it

I bet many of you think its unfair to give people a council house and enough benafits to sponge for life well guess what people this is England and the MP's couldn't give a **** about your oppinions.
