Although they both work, Bradley and his girlfriend struggle for money. He says, “My girlfriend and I have to go without food fairly regularly. I have begun counting calories, not to lose weight, but to try and make sure I get enough. It is difficult to describe our lives now without sensationalising. The best way to put it is like this: with the hunger, and with the way that budgeting money becomes something that dominates every day, poverty becomes a physical and psychological state, rather than just an economic condition.”
