    “Outlaw Company’ that has operated in an unlawful fashion for many years, running (disability) claims denial factories.” And what with an outlaw government that unlawfully gives a contract to Atos that has no medicinally trained staff to asses if a person is truthfully fit or unfit for work the assessment is run like a tombola raffle number 463 is unfit to work wile the other 499 are found fit for work.

    It is time for these CHARLATANS to face the full brunt of the law, if the USA can do it so can we. ATOS, UNUM and those in the DWP responsible for the current situation, jail them all.

    Would some of the welfare/disabled rights groups be able to start a law suit against them? The government are breaking EU laws and nothing is being done..surely they could be taken to court?

    Here are some excerpts from a transcript of a US documentary about UNUM from 2009. They may sound familiar:

    ‘Bradley: So you would go into these meetings once a month with a target, a dollar figure, which you had to save the company and that dollar figure had nothing to do with the validity of the claims that were out there. It had nothing to do with the legitimacy of the claims that were out there?
    McGinnis: Right.’

    ‘top executives repeatedly denied that the company sets any targets whatsoever’

    ‘Bradley: And if they would say to us that there were no targets, no money targets that we were aiming for each month, you would say…
    Hartley: It was well known to each individual, each one of us and to every department. It was standard, I mean day in day out there were targets.’

    ‘Michelle: The ones that knew how to do what was asked of them, they’re the ones that got the bonuses.
    Bradley: And what was asked of them?
    Michelle: Close the claims.’
