The Celebration of the life of Zoe Angella Sterry


Celebration of the Life of Zoe Sterry

Zoe Angella Sterry

Zoe Angella Sterry was the wife of Chris Sterry, the originator of this Post, and he lost his wife in the early hours of the morning of Saturday 26 September 2020 and her funeral took place on Friday 16 October 2020.

Chris started seeing Zoe in August 1983 and they were married on 4 October 1988, so, in total they had 37 years together, in which 32 years they were married.

Chris did not have any children of his own, but looked after Zoe’s children, David, Katie and Rachel as his own, together with their 3 grandchildren Oliver, Frankie and Luke, not forgetting the latest addition Theo as a Great Grandchild. She also had a younger brother Calvin.

Zoe was a formidable lady, with a big heart and an enormous amount of love. She had a very strong personality and enormous strength of character and would express her opinions to anyone, especially to Sheffield City Council (SCC), whom she had to deal with on behalf of Katie, who had multiple physical disabilities, severe Learning Disabilities, through Cerebral Palsy and also Autism.

Together Zoe and Chris fought with SCC for Katie, which Chris will now do alone.

Zoe and Chris created a very strong partnership and Zoe will be sadly missed by, not only him, but all who came into contact with her.

DWP Ordered To Pay Compensation To Family Of ESA Claimant Jodey Whiting, 42


Yes, the DWP are being fined, but will they learn from it?

I doubt it, because they are geared to create death.

Same Difference

A woman whose disabled daughter killed herself after her benefit payments were stopped has called for officials to be prosecuted over their failings.

Jodey Whiting, 42, of Stockton, Teesside, took her life in 2017 when her payments were halted because she missed a capability assessment.

An independent inquiry has found the Department for Work (DWP) breached its own rules and it has been ordered to apologise and pay £10,000 compensation.

The DWP said it accepted the findings.

Ms Whiting, a mother of nine, suffered multiple physical and mental health issues including curvature of the spine and a brain cyst, and took 23 tablets each day.

She was suffering from pneumonia when she missed her assessment but was then ruled fit to work and had her Employment and Support Allowance halted.

‘Pushed’ to her death

Her mother, Joy Dove, of Norton, said she was “shocked” by the extent of the failings…

DWP tells GPs not to support benefit claimants with sick notes : Welfare Weekly


Yesterday on Twitter, I posted one of my previous posts – Jobcentre tells GP to stop issuing sick notes to patient assessed as ‘fit for work’ and he died in which I discuss a letter addressed to a GP regarding a seriously ill patient. It said:

“We have decided your patient is capable of work from and including January 10, 2016.

“This means you do not have to give your patient more medical certificates for employment and support allowance purposes unless they appeal against this decision.”

The patient, James Harrison, had been declared “fit for work” and the letter stated that he should not get further medical certificates.

However, 10 months after the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) contacted his doctor without telling him, he died, aged 55. James clearly wasn’t fit for work.

Disabled people forced to go through two disability benefit assessments : Welfare Weekly


The Benefits and Work website have reported that a number of their members in recent weeks have been been made to go through a second Personal Independent Payment (PIP) assessment before a decision is made on their award, because there was a problem with the first assessment report.

One member faced a two hour assessment on Christmas Eve. In January they were contacted by Capita and told that the assessment was “incomplete” and that someone was to be “sent round to finish it.”

Capita have refused to say what information was missing and would not provide a copy of the report until it was complete.

The DWP left one man so ‘destitute’ that the police had to step in to help him


Unfortunately there is logic, that is it is the DWP’s intention to push claimants to the brink and beyond to create the ultimate aim (Death), Government Euthanasia and thereby reduce those claiming benefits.

I can see no other reason for this Government policy.

‘My constituent had his benefits sanctioned for having a heart attack’ : Welfare Weekly


DWP boss Esther McVey struggled through a Holyrood committee meeting as the real life impact of Tory welfare policies was laid bare.

SNP MSP George Adam raised the case of a constituent who had been sanctioned after suffering a heart attack – but was met with a brick wall as Ms McVey insisted the system was working.

 After Ms McVey said that Universal Credit was fit for purpose, Mr Adam told her “with the greatest respect, that’s completely devoid from the real world.”

He continued: “In my constituency, I’ve got people who’ve been suffering constantly because of the roll-out. We’re not even a full roll-out area.

“What about people like my constituent, who ended up getting sanctioned because he had a heart attack and was in the Royal Alexandra Hospital?”

Millions wasted reassessing Parkinson’s sufferers for PIP, says charity


With the DWP and their co-assassins Atos and Capita continuing to reassess claimants with regressive conditions just promotes how stupid and ignorant these assassinators are in their understanding of health conditions from which no one will recover only get progressively worse.

A reassessment would only be relevant should it be undertaken to assess needs for more support and help and not as it appears to be to reduce the extensive care packages already in existence.

If these death producing organisations are truly looking to reduce the whole financial outlay for welfare benefits, then the only sensible way forward would be to not reassess, unless a more extensive care package is being considered.

As they are not doing, then the only conclusion that can be put forward is that they are attempting to save money by creating conditions for these claimants to die more quickly than their health conditions would suggest.

In other words it is Governmental Assassination.

Sanctioned for not being able to sign on on bank holiday Monday. Tears, frustration and rain.


The poor side of life

Today’s demo started rather hurriedly and to be honest I didn’t know if I was coming or going. This feeling was amplified because it was cold, rainy and my daughter was a bit fed up. understandable of course. But she soon settled down into our usual routine and all was well.

We are seeing a lot of new faces due to Stalybridge Jobcentre shutting. They don’t know us and what we are doing, and we don’t know them or their situations either. So we have to start from scratch, which at times isn’t easy.  But it’s a whole lot harder for them.

I started a conversation with a man who had been previously attending Stalybridge Jobcentre for his appointments. The first thing that he said to me was that he couldn’t believe how rude the front desk staff are at  Ashton Jobcentre, and how rude some of the advisors are also…
