true story, ....the only girl I ever knew in the UK painted quite a disturbing picture of life there, .... and her, herself was a testament to that, ... not only was she molested by her stepfather as a girl, ... bit I found out he was having his way with her again from time to time to pay the rent, as well as give her extra money.
she lives in a rathole, wore ratty clothing, .... and what does she do with the 600 pounds he gave her ??? she bought a 600 pound pair of designer shoes !!!
something is seriously wrong over there.
