    Do you have about Peter Dewis, sixteen years with the Dept of Social Security, authoring the Disability Handbook with Aylward then over to Unum as Chief Medical Officer and since 2002 Director of Customer Care.

    I keep meaning to get this stuff on my blog, but sooo much. It’s a big job to coordinate it isn’t it? Well done what you’re doing, very much support you in this.

    Yes, excellent stuff. Would love to see their reply. I don’t understand the Guardian connection because the Guardian is a trust, apparently, though I know they are involved with the UNUM campaign

    The shennanigans of insurance companies who refuse to pay out compensation to victims of health-related diseases and disabilities never ceases to amaze me.
    Not just years, but decades of delaying tactics and obfuscations using the legal process, is like something straight out of a Dickens novel –

    “The UK Supreme Court has refused to uphold an appeal lodged by insurance companies against legislation brought in by the Scottish Parliament.
    Today’s judgement ensures that Scots will still be allowed the right to claim compensation for an asbestos-related condition called pleural plaques.”

    At a slight tangent, don’t forget the victims of the blood contamination scandal of the late 1970s/early 1980s.

    They are still waiting to this day for official recognition and proper compensation from our own government for the health crimes perpetrated against them and their loved ones.
    See Facebook group Tainted Blood for more info and links, and join them if you can –

    When it comes to official health disasters in the UK, such as the blood contamination scandal or the current nationwide campaign of medical fraud and abuse by DWP and Atos qualified medical staff, British patients have no rights and no legal redress to justice, never mind proper compensation for the terror and trauma they are subjected to.

    British doctors can lie, cheat and commit fraud in the UK on behalf of the government and its private contractors, Atos, and the governing and regulatory medical bodies such as the GMC and the Nurses and Midwifery Council couldn’t give a shit.

    Well, I think you guys really set something off here. This is my Sitemeter screengrab from this afternoon (and its been fairly quiet I have to say for ‘little visitors’).

    ALL of the hits were for my Michael O’Donnell pages, one spent 10 minutes, visited 4 pages. One exited from the Mansel Aylward page.

    Just to say Gill Troll-Baiter Thorburn,
    I’ve only just visited your website for the first time. Brilliant stuff. Such a clean layout and easy to understand.

    Your latest post about the new state ideology that the sick and specifically the poor sick, must be forced to work, even though they are recognised as sick, is spot on.
    These on-going neoliberal workfare “welfare reforms” are the medical ethics of the stalinist forced labour camp – with accompanying newspeak Orwellian language and opaque Kafkaesuqe bureaucratic morality and processes.

    Mansell Aylward, now there’s a name (actually it isn’t really a name at all, is it. I always think it should be some kind of arcane implement in B and Qs) lol

  • Gill Troll-Baiter Thorburn on Facebook October 13, 2011 at 1:25 am

    Thank-you Joe! When I first started looking into this stuff I had a sense of ‘something going on here’. I never imagined the shocking twisting of reality that’s been going on, and the deliberate attempt to manipulate how people think about illness and disability. For what? Profits? How sick is that?

    Sasha, lol yes 😀
