Newsnight on the Paralympics, AtoS and Disability Cuts: Not one word of truth from the Government and Not one word of a lie from Francesca Martinez

Francesca Martinez

Congratulations and well done, Francesca! You have done us all extremely proud and you’ve done justice for the disabled people’s protest movement! 

The Government side repeated a constant stream of LIES and PROPAGANDA in this programme. We do not believe they spoke even ONE word of truth. And we do not believe that Francesca spoke ONE word of a lie!



The Truth About Maria Miller the Killer’s and the Government’s Claims:

Will the DWP/Atos Personal Independence Payment Assessments to be different from ESA? 



A Handbook for Decision Makers

Forward (Sic)

This handbook has been prepared by the Department’s Health, Work and Wellbeing Directorate. It considers how Disability Living Allowance (DLA) Decision Makers (DMs) can use the information obtained in assessing Employment and Support Allowance in determining DLA benefit entitlement.

Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) has been introduced in October 2008, for new claimants, and will replace Incapacity Benefit and Income Support paid on grounds of incapacity.

Analysis has shown that a large percentage of DLA claimants have a current or recent claim to incapacity benefit. Valuable information relating to the customer’s medical condition and functional limitations will be available in the documentation used to evaluate the ESA claim.

Using this information may save the customer from having to undergo an examination in connection with their DLA claim, and reduce the need to obtain further clinical information from the customer’s doctor or another health care professional (HCP).

Why even bother with the new PIP assessment?

They’re already depriving disabled people of their DLA in their tens of thousands ~ based on the irredeemably ‘flawed’ AtoS Work Capability Assessment reports!


Is £1 billion a year lost through Disability Living Allowance overpayments?

Welfare reform: Do Iain Duncan Smith’s claims check out?

Disability Living Allowance: are benefits being paid “without checks”?

Disability Living Allowance statistic withdrawn from DWP press release as Department corrects error

Have disability benefit claims trebled in 20 years?

DWP must publish data behind Iain Duncan Smith claim

Disability benefit: How much does fraud and error cost?

Welfare Reform: How many people will lose disability benefit?

Are the Daily Mail’s claims about Disability Living Allowance allowed?

DWP contradicts MP and own Minister on Welfare Reform

    I had to take a break from watching this as my doctor has advised me to avoid stress at all costs and the sight of that liar Maria Miller sounding ever so soft spoken and nicey nicey got my blood boiling. She’s simply a hatchet woman for the nasty party and she gets a decent salary plus expenses for crapping on thousands of us! I really hope the bags under her eyes get so big she’s got to tuck them into the tops of her socks.

    Francesca is fantastic – such a shining light – she is amaaaaaazing – Love her!
    Maria the Killer should be sacked immediately – she is NOT FOR disabled people – whe is for killing disabled people – She is evil!
    Taking DLA – That is a lifeline to allow so many people to integrate in LIFE and LIVING – is inhumane – and i for one am petrified as to what i will do and how i will live when PIP comes alone and when ESA gets to me – I am petrified and it has made me so much more ill worrying abut this evil inhumane process

    Tory liars, we know the truth, and miller and co can go on telling their nonsense , but the truth is no one believes a word they say on anything anymore. Time to start packing Cameron , the car is waiting for you and your vile government,just like it was for Thatcher all those years ago. Amazingly you have managed to outdo her in two years, that is some achievement , to go down in history as the worst UK government ever.
