“Most students get state funding and only have to pay it back after earning a set amount – a large number of these students NEVER go onto the career they studied and don’t earn the amount to pay back the full amount. (funny a lot of students tweet me hate)

“If you’re a student and working part time – likelihood, your not paying tax. If your aged 18-21 and are paid minimum wage, unless you work more than 39 hours a week YOU. DON’T. PAY. TAX!

“Some people who comment are, the same as me – a single parent – many of them (not all) are claiming benefits – I’m now self employed.

“Telling me how I should act to be liked? That’s being fake – u may like it, but I would rather b hated for who I really am than liked for who I pretend to be.

“The people calling me a vile person, are then saying how they would love for someone to punch me. I’m a vile person, yet you are wishing an attack on a pregnant woman?

“And most importantly: "Josie should put her children first"? I'm pretty certain my children do not want for anything, they are to young to read papers and wouldn't understand anything thats on TV - if they get told horrible things in the playground, then the only way the children would know about it is their parents talking about "escorting" "fake tits" etc in front of them? - thats not something you should talk to a child about in my opinion. Most of your opinions are totally void because of the above!”
