    Another excellent report from Mo with so many important and significant points from which I pick one:

    “On closer examination, it appears that this entire body of work [SCBIB – The Scientific and Conceptual Basis of Incapacity Benefits (SCBIB) by Gordon Waddell and Mansel Aylward ] is largely self-referential – that is, it appeals for validation to itself and is framed within the same political and policy agenda… It is not research undertaken in the spirit of open enquiry. It is commissioned research and, as such, pre-disposed towards ideologically determined outcomes.”

    Very few people have probably ever read this SCBIB paper which is exactly as Mo characterises it – indeed in my view it is an astonishingly weak piece work drawing hugely general and contentious conclusions from a minimal evidence base.

    There never has been any substantial scientific or objective basis for the methodology which underlies the ESA legislation.

    It is appalling that Parliament has and continues to proceed as if there was.
