    So how are they planning to get someone stuck in a hospital bed on traction or in intensive care to these assessments then?

    Cool! That means that everytime some idiot employer keeps a sick worker at work, we can sue his jolly arse until he’s as poor as we are! YAY!! Thanks Government for being such clever f*ckers!!!

    It was 2 years before my employer finished me on health grounds they paid me for 12 0f those months But I was put on ESA from the 26 week point I was still employed when I had my 6 WFIs evrey time I went it was hello sir goodbye sir they didnt even bother sending me on courses because I was still employed, how stupid is that so for another six months I was still employed but still getting ESA the job centre kept saying but you are unemployed no I say Im still employed so I got unemployment benefit when I was still employed, you couldnt make it up
    they now reduce my ESA because my sickness pension is more than £85 per week.

    This will cost tonnes of money to bring in and will cause prolonged illness due to stress. To anyone who is not a nincompoop this is clearly not going to work. Therein lies the problem. To date Ministers of all parties have shown themselves to be somewhat lacking in the brain department. What gets a person voted in is: a good set of teeth: the charm of a psychopath and the backing of groups who wish to exert influence via the backdoor. A person with honesty and brains would rarely be elected.
