How four seriously ill people battled to get their PIP awards


The DWP is practising the ‘3 Wise Monkeys’ here is what ‘A DWP spokesperson said: ” We are committed to ensuring that people with a health condition or disability get the support they’re entitled to.

“Since PIP was introduced there have been 3.7 million decisions made and of these only 5% have been overturned at appeal. “In most successful appeals, decisions are overturned because people have submitted more oral or written evidence.” ‘

The evidence is there, as shown in this article and they have the audacity to say the above.

This is why I state they are practising the ‘3 Wise Monkeys’ for they are “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”.

They are not understanding what is occurring or what is occurring because of them and by them, until they do these atrocities will still happening. The pain suffering and even death of some claimants will still be resulting.

The DWP have to change, so that a supporting welfare system can emerge, for currently it is not supporting for everyone who needs to be supported.

What the DWP is doing should be a crime and those at the DWP and also the DWP would be guilty of committing criminal acts, as it is, currently, not so, then there needs to be accountability, where there is honesty, openness and transparency.

Universal Credit staff consider strike action after being treated ‘with contempt’ : Welfare Weekly


Hundreds of staff working on the UK Government’s flagship Universal Credit scheme are considering industrial action over “severe under investment, staff shortages and criticism from claimants on how they are treated”.

Close to 700 Universal Credit case handlers working at centres in Wolverhampton and Walsall are to be balloted by the Public and Commercial Services union (PCS) for potential strike action.

If PCS members vote for industrial action, strike action could take place as early as March, which will see staff walk out in protest for 48 hours. The ballot closes on 25 February.
