    “Atos last night referred inquiries to the DWP”… who in turn referred the inquiries back to Atos, no doubt (<_<')

    “Atos last night referred inquiries to the DWP” – as per usual. Liability avoidance. such a pimping doorstep insurance firm. I really do wish DWP and govts would see how they have all been duped and blamed and persuaded to pay through the nose for the pleasure. and I wish Labour would remember they started it first. Anyone done the calculation as to how much this has cost in public money, public resources and departments and experts and medical staff and GP time to keep putting right and having to meet its needs. No one seems to realise that GPs shd not be spending 60% of their time on Atos reports and an indepth report of say decades to wade through mean GPs can be spending 10 hrs of their spare time on trying to make one report. For some reason no one takes on the time and motion. So lawyer (not mentioning who) actually think GPs can do hundreds of hours a week on top of their work to write reports. An old fashioned time and motion man would tell them that is impossible. Will someone please teach those with brains and degrees it is not possible. Fed up of intelligent people who are so DUMB!

    “The rocketing cost of appeals, the huge rise in the number of Tribunal judges, and the introduction of Saturday sittings add up to one thing: the Work Capability Assessment is unfit for purpose.”

    which is what we have been telling them for a long time, to no evail. The purpose of Atos (along with privatising the NHS)becomes more a case of” lets increase the profits of our pals in aprivate company” rather than trying to save money and give support to those who need it.

    Why has no one tested this in the courts, the whole system should come before a judicial review as it is obviously not working. When something is working in the UK they try to fix it, when something isn’t working like the ATOS Assessment then nothing is done to fix it.!

    My friend who has been in a psychiatric unit 18 times in two years, is severely depressed, alcoholic, epileptic and HIV+ has not even had a medical assessment, was told they were increasing his benefits and placed on the support group has now been sent documents stating that his case will now go to appeal, yet no one at ATOS has even seen him, the whole system is bollocks !

    “31 people have died while awaiting decisions on Appeal” says Grayling, as if it is some ‘triumph’ , as if it is some achievement He and His excremental Government can be proud of. There should have been ZERO deaths Grayling – ZERO!! It is the manifest and compound ineptitude of an Administration, determined to make changes for their own sake and who now find the whole system breaking down. It is NOT the fact that so many Appeals are taking place that is the disgrace: nor even the cost of them. It is the reason they have become necessary in the first place!! As for those who have died, there should be a Public Inquiry into their deaths and those responsible for them should be named and shamed!

    This is EUGENICS! Plain & Simple. How long will it take for enough people to wake up to what’s going on in this country? The Tories and their supporters know….they welcome the stamp of the jackboot on the necks of the weakest…..the LibDems have become The ConDems,& The Labour Party is Tory Lite.
    There comes a time when civil disobedience is required & necessary.
    That time is now.
