When will the DWP or more especially the Government realise the suffering they are causing by the stringent rules they have created within the benefit system.
To do nothing of note, which they are effectively doing is not caring, but uncaring.

Ron Stevenson [below], 69, who is almost completely paralysed, was warned his benefit payments could stop on July 29 if he did not reply to a letter from the Department of Work and Pensions.
A terminally ill man with just six months to live was ‘devastated’ to be told he’d need to reapply for his benefits. Ron Stevenson, 69, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease 10 years ago and relies on moderate weekly care payments to supplement his care.
