    Why would he need to claim ESA if looking for work? ESA is for those unfit for work so!

    It will largely depend on his registration status at the university, is he officially still a student?

    Has he received any student loan this term? If he has then this is counted as income for UC.

  • Many saying sexism or ego. My suspicion as someone who works in TV is that this is a format point. I'd think whe? https://t.co/AXfrv5YqKA

  • I do always ponder when watching apprentice why Lord Sugar is "Lord Sugar" but Baroness Bradey is Karen. #bbctheapprentice

  • Lord Sugar just said "she's talking like she's a 50 year old, she knows it inside out?" Genuine question if ther? https://t.co/6cZJ9d2Cni
