Yes, complaints are rising regarding Atos and Capita, but they are just an arm of the DWP, albeit a private arm, so are they not just doing the bidding of the DWP.
Why do I say that?
Well if they are not doing the bidding and complaints are coninuing to rise, why are they still doing the assessment as this implies they are not only not capable to do assessments, but are not able to follow the explicate direction of the DWP.
But are they able to follow the explicate direction of the DWP and are in fact doing so. Should this be so then, the complaints need not be addressed to Atos and Capita, but to DWP themselves.
We will never know if the DWP is explicately responsible, which technically they are, or whether Atos and Capita are not abiding by DWP directives, in which case the contracts to undertake assessments should be withdrawn.
However, again will we ever know, are there any penalty clauses in the contracts from the DWP to Atos and Capita to provide penalties for early cancelations of the contracts.
Could be as many of the contracts re privitisation are not in the interests of the population of the UK or the UK fullstop, but solely in the interests of the private companies, which is what I believe.
You only have to look at the PFI contracts to see these were not in the public interest, for yeas it was, so called, cheap money at the outset, but the real profits for the PFI companies is in the long-term.
In reality the DWP should be doing the whole process with all Welfare Benefits, not saying it would be any better and perhaps worse, if that can be believed, but at least it would be easy to see where the blame lies.
Really these whole processes should be held liable in the criminl system and effective criminal actions be taken against all concerned.
The Government is not litening to the UN, but would have to listen and then act accordingly to the law of the land.
