  • Stepping Razor Sound Plate June 10, 2013 at 2:24 pm

    The problem is Lab & the Cons have shares in UNUM. What fools.

  • Stepping Razor Sound Plate June 10, 2013 at 2:27 pm

    “Unum Provident is an outlaw company. It is a company that has operated in an illegal fashion for years…”(4)

    & its shareholders = The Government & Labour. So it`s outlawed politicis now !!!

  • Linda June 10, 2013 at 2:39 pm

    Only the English are stuck with the Tories and Labour which is Tory lite.

  • Mr.Angry June 10, 2013 at 3:17 pm

    Why Why Why is this not in the main stream media, welfare cuts, sanctions, food banks, ILF, workfare, cuts to legal aid, bedroom tax, HB cuts, closed court hearings, destruction of the NHS, suicides, deaths all resulting from a coalition. Are we as the peolple of this nation going to sit back and let them destroy our democracy, economy and whats left of the United kingdom. Whilst they support the rich and let the energy companies and bankers make living impossible.

    • Mo Stewart June 17, 2013 at 7:30 pm

      Mr Angry –
      My research is not in the mainstream media because there is a confirmed government ban on exposing the links between the DWP and Unum Insurance.

      • Steve June 19, 2013 at 11:14 pm

        Is there an actual “D Notice” on such?
        if so, damn, that’d be one HELL of a millstone around their necks: proof they’re so utterly corrupt they’d even abuse security measures to silence it

    • failquail June 22, 2013 at 4:56 pm

      Because these are right-wing policies and the right own nearly all of the mainstream media… 🙁

    The dwp are up to their dirty tricks again……….

    The dwp stated that the vast majority of PIP assessments would not take place until 2015, those with indefinite awards will not be affected until at least October 2015.

    At present i am waiting to go to tribunal after being assessed fit for work, although having a lifetime award of disability.
    My Incapacity Benefit was stopped last November and i have been receiving around £75 per week in Disability Living Allowance and £32 Industrial Injuries Benefit.

    This morning i received a stout brown envelope containing a 35 page questionnaire from the DLA.
    It states that we require some additional information to determine if you are receiving the correct amount of DLA.

    On the reverse, it states, “when we get your completed form we may need further medical information from people who have treated or are treating you for your medical conditions or you could be referred to an independent medical examination”.

    This reinterpreted means that if you receive this questionnaire, regardless of the answers you give, you will undoubtedly be sent for another twisted and biased ATOS exam that will enable them to steal the rest of your benefits……..

    I would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Mo Stewart for all the work undertaken on behalf of all us disabled folk. Unfortunately honesty, truth, integrity, compassion, empathy, and morals are no longer required in the British political system; you only have to look at the lying, thieving, ultra corrupt, tax dodging millionaires we have governing us. Do not forget these are fascists, who will send our children to be maimed or killed in illegal wars, for the crumbs from the table of the USA; it should be of no surprise then, that they are using an outlawed American insurance company to do their dirty work. Unum,AtoS and the DWP are all connected through one name or another to the British government. It has been shown and proven the corruption that exits, the utter lies of the statistics used in the governments assault on the disabled through their fascist owned gutter press. When a minister can change a law to cover his own ineptitude, his own stupidity what chance does any law abiding citizen have. When closed courts are becoming the norm in a so called democratic society.
    Everyone knows who caused the financial mess we are in today, everyone knows who pulled them out of that mess and what was used to do it, and everyone knows who are going to prosper from it, and who is going to pay for it in the long term. Why would a chancellor continue with a programme of austerity that profits only the bankers and the rich, one that is slowly bleeding this country dry? They have privatized almost everything and the British public are paying through their noses for it, even water the basic necessity of life.
    Our political system of a thousand years is being changed, not by politicians but by business men playing at being politicians. They all have vested interests in one aspect or another of business, chairman of or director of; we have a National Health Service that many ordinary Tory’s were born into, who have been kept alive by it, and for 70 years the Tory’s have been trying to destroy it. Now these business men are on the verge of complete privatization of our NHS, not for our benefit, simply to swell their own bank accounts, some will gain to the tune of billions personally all taken from our taxes. How many billions have already been wasted fighting so called frauds in our benefits system? Hundreds of millions already gone to AtoS with billions more waiting to be collected by them, all they have to do is continue their disability denial agenda, fully supported by our utterly corrupt government of tax dodging businessmen.
    Let us not forget that these parasites are ordinary people, who are committing mass fraud robbing our country blind, supported by a bought and paid for justice system. They have brainwashed a large proportion of our society who let’s face it must be brain dead not to see what’s happening, who believe everything they are told by the Sun and right wing press, when most of them can’t get passed page three. Many more of us will continue to die we are being killed off because we are useless eaters, regardless of how much we contributed in the past.
    Our time will come just as it did in Nazi Germany, when the fascists were caught and brought to account. Hopefully no mercy will be shown and they will be charged with Treason against our people and the complicit murder of our sick and disabled. The one percent will be held to account; their high walled palaces will not keep them secure forever..

    • Mo Stewart June 12, 2013 at 3:15 am

      Hi Andrew.
      This is the final report following over 3 years of often disturbing research and I admit it’s nice to get some thanks.

      Lets not forget the shame of the Liberal Democrats in this nightmare. They have sold their souls to the Devil for a seat at the top table of government, betrayed their own party principles and their own supporters, then turned a blind eye to government funded medical tyranny that’s demonstrated to be government funded manslaughter for many. Mo

      • Andrew Healey June 12, 2013 at 3:35 pm

        The thanks is completely deserved for giving three years of your time fighting this injustice.
        Not only are the LibDems turncoats, it would seem we now have New Labour doing just the same.Notice I say New because I think Old Labour would have fought this tooth and nail, I think they would have brought the corruption into the open.
        Unfortunately the lower classes in this country are no longer represented by anyone,I don’t say lower classes as a derogatory term, I think it’s how the unemployed, low paid, sick and disabled, the old and infirm are known by our massively corrupt political masters.I’m just grateful there are sites and individuals like yourselves who are bringing this to light and making a record of it. I’m only sorry I can’t do more myself. Thanks again.

      • Tom Griffiths September 28, 2013 at 1:16 am

        You have led an outstanding campaign against a huge injustice for many years.

        I invite Mo Stewart and Black Triangle members to attend two Fringe meetings at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester on October 1st. Dr Greg Wood ~ formerly of Atos ~ and Caroline Richardson ~ of We are Spartacus ~ are two of the key speakers. We will also invite questions and contributions from the floor.

        For more information about these meetings and are WCA Action Group please contact me, Tom Griffiths ~ tom.g@europia.,org.uk or refer to our website ~ http://www.wcaactiongroup.org.uk

    UNUM Influence

    GEOFFREY REYNOLDS made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Work and Pensions

    Waiting for an internal review by Department for Work and Pensions of their handling of this request.
    From: GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

    15 April 2013

    Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
    You recently quoted the following paragraph in a FOI response;

    The assisted text phrases that may be used to construct the medical
    history were drawn from
    many sources including the Incapacity Benefit Handbook, medical
    text books, examples of high
    quality Personal Capability Assessment report and discussions with
    experienced approved
    Healthcare Professionals (HCP). They have been quality assured by
    panels of experienced
    HCPs and deemed appropriate for constructing good quality relevant
    clinical and functional
    histories and were agreed in consultation with the DWP Health and
    Benefits Division (formerly
    Corporate Medical Group).

    COULD YOU STATE, CATEGORICALLY, THAN UNUM CORPORATION HAD NO
    INFLUENCE IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF LIMA BASES BIOPSYCHOSOCIAL
    SOFTWARE USED IN ESA EXAMINATIONS?

    DID MEMBERS OF THE INSURANCE INDUSTRY HAVE INPUT INTO THE
    CONSTRUCTION OF THE LIMA SOFTWARE THAT IS USED DURING AN ESA
    EXAMINATION?

    DID MANSEL AYLWARD HAVE LINKS TO THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE SOFTWARE.
    IF SO PLEASE STATE, AND DESCRIBE HIS INPUT?

    Yours faithfully,GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

    WHAT YOU SEE IN THE ARTICLE ABOVE IS A CONCERTED EFFORT FROM MYSELF TO MAKE THE DWP AWARE OF THE DEMONISATION OF THE DISABLED AND POOREST….

    By using the website “what do they know”, you can elicit lots of information on the barrage of anti disability cuts.

    The freedom of information requests that i, and many other followers submit, give a chilling account of what is happening within our oppressed community…..

    I WOULD URGE EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU TO SUBMIT A FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST.
    IT IS NOT HARD, IT COSTS NOTHING, JUST A FEW MINUTES OF YOUR TIME, AND YOU DONT HAVE TO BE INTELLIGENT (thats why i use it).
    This media is accessed by so many people and is a good way of venting your frustrations.
    It allows you to ask pertinent questions and challenge any replies that you are not happy with.

    Slowly but surely, the snippets of information that the DWP release, start to form a jigsaw of hate that is being thrust upon you by this vile government……….

    DON’T JUST SIT BACK AND MOAN, DO SOMETHING NOW!
    REMEMBER, EVERY FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT REQUEST IS A CHALLENGE!!!

    GO FOR IT…..

    YOU WILL BE AMONG FRIENDS WITH THE SAME GOALS…

    • Mo Stewart June 12, 2013 at 10:51 am

      Interesting comment Geoff.

      I thought that perhaps what people see “..in the article above…” is a concerted effort by Mo Stewart, whose spent in excess of three years doing this research to provide people like you the info to use in your very informative FOI requests?

      • Stepping Razor Sound Plate June 12, 2013 at 11:06 am

        I doubt you will get freedom request for: How many people have died under the ATOS & DWP medical Healthcare system? Their answer is NONE.
        Becuase it`s a private company. The DWP is a private corporate company. There are no more public systems to give you freedom of infomation because it`s become an international trade of disabled slaves. Defrauding our Human Rights yet again.

      • Karen M June 30, 2013 at 5:55 pm

        Agreed Mo. Geoffrey was a frequent contributor to whatdotheyknow.

  • Stepping Razor Sound Plate June 12, 2013 at 11:25 am

    My reseach has resulted in that I am the only one who has not been their slave & not filled out the ESA [default] form or sent it back. My circumstances have not changed. They have not cut my money & they won`t because I am a very bad cash cow & will cost them thousands of pounds to chase up. Being disabled from birth I know every trick in the book, on how genocide works against the disabled. We want action NOW, not next week, next year, NOW. To stop the disabled slave trade that is happening in the uk today 2013. Since I have only known disability all my life I am an expert in disability. Word are words, action is action. The uk Government has brought back the slave trade to 2013 inslaving the disabled outside of their disability, because they are already unslaved with their disability already. Double Bubble. All I hear is talk talk talk & nothing is done. But what can we do? answer – Don`t be bullied by the state you are a human being with human rights. So if we have no Human Rights what does that make the UK a democracy!! Disabled slave trading in a democracy. The worst UK scandal since the Thalidomide cases from the 1960s & we still want answers 50 years later. You may have become disabled over the past few years but some of us know no different & have always been disabled. You become a slave to the state. Welcome to disability.

    From: GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

    10 June 2013

    Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
    You constantly inform me that there is no conflict of interest
    between your CHIEF MEDICAL OFFICER, Bill Gunnyeon, ATOS HEALTHCARE
    and UNUM INSURANCE, yet;

    The Guardian, Wednesday 12 September 2012 21.00 BST

    This week the sixth International Forum on Disability Management,
    IFDM 2012, takes place at Imperial College London. It is sponsored
    by some of the world’s largest medical insurance companies, Unum
    among them, and speakers include DWP chief medical adviser Dr Bill
    Gunyeon and Professor Sir Mansel Aylward, formerly DWP chief
    medical adviser and director of the Centre for Psychosocial and
    Disability Research at Cardiff University, which was sponsored by
    Unum from its inception in 2003 until 2009.

    Unum’s website states that during this sponsorship period “a series
    of papers was published, identifying the range of factors that
    determine why some people become long-term absentees”. The Cardiff
    papers advocated a “biopsychosocial model” of disability which Unum
    says “informed its approach to medical underwriting”. It is the
    same approach upon which the current Atos work capability
    assessment (WCA) is based. Concomitantly, the company were advising
    the UK government on welfare reform.

    Please answer the following questions,

    1/ Have UNUM had any input, whatsoever, in the formation of ESA
    examinations?

    2/ Does Gunnyeon receive any remuneration, whatsoever, from the
    Insurance Industry?

    3/ Has Gunnyeon received ANY FORM OF SPONSORSHIP MONEY whilst a
    guest speaker?

    4/ Was the Biopsychosocial model of disability that originated in
    Cardiff University, via UNUM and AYLWARD, used within the ESA
    examinations process?

    5/ Has GUNNYEON accepted any gifts,holidays etc, whatsoever, from
    the Insurance Industry?

    6/ What does GUNNYEON think to the number of suicides and deaths
    occurring on his “watch”?

    7/ Did the outgoing, Professor, Sir Mansel Aylward have any
    influence on Bill Gunnyeon, replacing him as CMO of the DWP?

    Yours faithfully,

    GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

        It`s about disability not politics.

        • Stepping Razor Sound Plate June 12, 2013 at 1:50 pm

          Why oh why has people been fooled & bullied into the ESA contract, because it`s like trying to get out of a mobile phone contract. Why have people put up with this? because you have been told. Why oh why – Threats of sanctions = Another Untruth.

        EXPAND ON WHAT YOU MEAN BY SCARED TO CUT?

          They threaten your benefit maybe cut. Maybe is a maybe not a fact.

            It will cost them so much money on me, it will be easier with other people. They can sort out 200 people while they are still trying to sort me out. He is a bad cash cow.

              My circumstanes have not changed, so there is no need to take yourself off DLA or SDA to make a new claim with the ESA form. I have had the Welfare state for over 30 years.

                Now we get to the interesting point. Who is defrauding the welfare state loop holes the able bodied or the disabled !!!

    I would also like to thank Mo Stewart for the superb reports she has produced exposing the inappropriate influence UNUM has been given to help create the non-medical work capability assessment.This ‘not fit for purpose’ test is forcing vast numbers of chronically sick and disabled people to seek work or do work activities they cannot do,resulting in loss of benefits needed to live.Of course,this was the purpose of the WCA.The british people must be made aware of the fact that UNUM and other private insurance companies are going to replace the NHS with the vastly expensive American style health system where illness results in bankruptcy.Mo’s reports need to be disseminated as widely as possible.I found them on a website called social warriors,but it has disappeared,anyone know why?

  • Mo Stewart June 16, 2013 at 6:24 am

    Social Warriors is no longer live & the website is closed.
    Still available via Face Book.

    The Bilderberg Group are behind this,I wish the Rote Armee Fraktion were still active,remember them,they were on the news quite a bit when I was young,and the Brigate Rosse,they were good too,I don’t see the point in liveing,next week ATOS are going to stop my benefits,I’d be better off dead,but I’m too big a coward to do it,why was I even born,what’s the point in liveing if you’re poor?All the things that make life worth liveing cost money,I’m hoples in interviews,they’ll trick me into saying the wrong things so they can stop my money,I blame NATO,it’s there fault the wrong side won the Cold War,now we’ve got all these Bulingdon Boys running the country,if I had my way anyone who’s been to Oxford or Cambridge or Heidelburg or Yale or Harvar or the Saubon or any of these posh univerities where the sons of millionaires with their trust funds go,they’d all be striped of their wealth and sent to a gulag for a spot of reeducation,when you see Ascot on the telly do you fantasize about walking into the Royal Enclosure with an AK47 and fiffty clips of amo and takeing out half of The Sunday Times Rich List,or is that just me?

    Oh dear. This isn’t good is it?
    Be advised please that ATOS can’t & don’t have the authority to stop anyone’s benefit. They do the test only. It’s the DWP Decision Makers – who are totally unqualified for the job – who make the decisions. You have a lot more than many as on this forum you’ll get a lot of support, so no more talk like the above and expect to get through this instead of giving up.

      JG Morris, it is well worth leaving your message on Michael Meacher’s site under More Atos Nightmares. He isn’t a Blairite. He speaks well in parliament and does pick up messages.
