HomeBlack Triangle NewsWork and Pensions Select Committee concludes that Government should learn the lessons of the WCA

    They haven’t stopped the WCA’s ‘mistakes’ to date – why should any rational person be so gullible to believe that they will get the PIP assessments ‘right first time’? The fact is that they have moved the goalposts of what does and does not constitute a disability.

    Besides, this misses one crucial point:

    The parameters are now set so narrowly that hundreds of thousands of people, including blind folk, who were formerly recognised as having a disability for the sake of receiving extra state support will no longer be so classified!

    The Work and Pensions Select Committee is another toothless tiger. It’s great that they monitor and scrutinise the DWP’s works and educate the public – but they, like the House of Lords, are hardly a ‘check’ on the prerogative powers of the Executive to do just exactly as it wishes.

    We are living under an unelected dictatorship. That should be clear to anybody with half a brain by now. Nothing this Committee says or does will make the slightest difference in mitigating the barbarous suffering that this coalition is hell-bent on inflicting on those of us who have the misfortune to be sick and/or disabled!

      The writing is on the wall but we the electorate are undecided whether we are sheep or ostriches or have been cajoled into believing we still live in a DEMOCRACY .The obvious façade of democracy started to be eroded when Thatcher smashed the UNIONS importing an American named McGregor . Thatcher spent £12 billion pounds ,£36,240,000,000.00 in today’s money to achieve her goal .Blair continued ,with his brazen disregard for cabinet meeting’s and held armchair discussions between him and his chosen advisers .Where were our representative MP’s to argue against this practice .Now we have Cameron and his fascist henchmen such as Schmidt and Grables ,Osborne and May who between them have decimated the welfare system ,made the rich ,richer and have shown scant regard for justice .The rule of Law should be executed on a level ‘playing field’ and not bits of EU law and British Law used in similar circumstances when it suits the Governments purpose. DEMOCRACY has been eroded ,things have gone too far ,there is only one vote open to us all – A NO VOTE ,let’s not support their BIG LIE .Would you buy something you didn’t want – why vote for something you know nothing about .Truth is not in a Politicians vocabulary .
