    It’s a big step forward for all of us-I hope this generates lots of appropriate publicity (call me an optimist) and throws this disorganised thicko Governement into Laurel and Hardy mode
    Massive cheering for MHRN!

  • Jan Tchamani July 26, 2012 at 2:16 pm

    Well done. This is certainly needed. I feel proud to know such courageous and determined people.

    So, sorry if I’m being a bit dim here, but does it also apply to the WCA as it impacts upon people with physical illness (particularly fluctuating conditions like ME or auto-immune problems), not just to those with mental health conditions?

    Well done, now the DLA assessment process in general

    I pray that this wil make them look again at people with M.S and Parkinsons who are told to get a job, when they have so many problems like fatigue, bladder and bowel problems and so much more. This WCA is inhuman, just like this govt. I wish it could be the end of the WCA.or at least a version of it that is HUMANE

  • jeffery davies July 26, 2012 at 4:16 pm

    I think a positive outcome for MHRN will prepare the ground and add momentum to the fight to end WCA/ATOS for ALL with disabilities. The judge looking at MHRN’s request described WCA/ ATOS as a “pretty crude tool” to judge ANY person with ANY disabilities by.

    Once again, congratulations MHRN, you’ve done fantastic work here and I am very grateful to you all for your courage, tenacity and determination.

    High Five to you all! Happy to hear this – after all, with 10 years of austerity ahead of us we need all the good news and help we can get. I’M MAD AND I LOVE IT!

  • A Statistic July 26, 2012 at 6:57 pm

    Thank you. Sincerely, thank you for all your tireless work helping people like myself who simply do not have the ability or resources to fight. ♥

    Brilliant, well done!

    Wonderful news, this WILL be the end of the WCA and ATOS involvement in benefit assessment when it is proven in a court of law that they have broken more laws than you and i have had hot dinners. Grayling and IDS should then be tried individually for disability discrimination once the case against their draconian evil is proved. After all if they were outspoken racists what would happen to them ? But they are outspoken disability discriminators, same crime , different type. Jail them both.

    We must get as many people as possible to watch channel 4’s Dispatches next monday. Public opinion has been corrupted by the misinformation spouted by the Daily Mail et al, we must turn the tide and make people realise what is really happening – in Britain – in the 21 st century – by this evil government.

  • Allen Vincent July 27, 2012 at 6:19 pm

    It is good news but it’s also frustrating as the duty to make reasonable adjustments, to pay due regard to substantial disadvantage, disability & detriment has been around for a while but many public authorities flout the law and it’s almost impossible to make one’s own N1 County Court Claims against disability discrimination in it’s many forms under the Equality Act 2010 as England’s C0unty Court system is riddled with “indirect discrimination’s” and disgracefully this applies to the Equality & Human Rights Commission as well.

    Many of us have “protected characteristic” under the Equality Act 2010 so many forms of disability, with or without learning disabilities will be covered, even depression is a disability for the purpose of the Equality Act 2010. Many public authorities also flout the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED), EC Human Rights & Disability Rights.

    I know as I tried to make my own case against the SRA Solicitors Regulation Authority via Sheffield County Court, was a horrific experience, case 1SE06800 which was unlawfully struck out:

    God I pray you are right. Living in perpetual fear of the hatred they have whippe dup against disabled people is a nightmare. Living in fear of being told you are fine when you know you are not (as does our specialists) is a nightmare – This Govt are all inhuman, they make this no longer ‘Great’ Britain. Soon there will be no NHS no Welfare state and nothign humane left in this once great country.

    “Ah ok. Thanks. Silly me I thought it might have been the end of the WCA.” No not silly at all because if this wins it could very well open the gates to further JR’s on the WCA Hold on all it is going in the right direction.

    This is why I’ve changed from Unionist to Nationalist. Tory’s have historically always sickened me with their lack of understanding for the disabled. They’re the reason I can’t wait to leave this farce of a Union. Incompassionate, self-serving, ruthless, cold, cruel, discriminatory, deceitful merciless, manipulative snakes. They show no humanity, empathy or sympathy. They are money worshipers.
    Vote Tory, vote your life away!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
