Labour’s Michael McCann teased the prime minister about the private firm carrying out assessments for welfare-to-work when he claimed Atos had declared Richard lll was “fit to work”.

David Cameron said he hoped the discovery of the former king’s remains would engender a great historical understanding as he praised the “great city of Leicester”.

It was confirmed this week that bones found in a car park belonged to monarch who died at the Battle of Bosworth.



No laughing matter:  

10,600 sick and/or disabled people dead within six weeks of their sickness benefit claim having been unjustly ended by the DWP-AtoS

    I put forward a Freedom of Information request to the DWP asking how many more people would have to die due to the deadly partnership between them and ATOS.
    I called the request “MURDER BY IGNORANCE” From: GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

    Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
    How many Disabled people must succumb to death before the deadly
    relationship between the DWP and ATOS finally realise the extent of
    their ill deeds due to a deeply flawed system of examination?

    Yours faithfully, GEOFFREY REYNOLDS

      Geoff, I saw your FOI, and noted you have been suspended from What Do They Know. You’re not the only one suspended because of asking too many questions about ATOS, and a chap called GANISH SITTAMPALEM who is one of the moderators has been blocking other peoples ATOS FOIs.

      I have just done a blog post about this, and I hope you will read it, because it looks like fraud to me.

      I tried to email you from What Do They Know but don’t know if you got my email, I strongly suspect someone is mucking about with emails from What Do They Know because I emailed two more people about ATOS FOIs being blocked and none of the three have replied, so I would be grateful if you could tell me if you recieved it or not, thanks

      Here is the blog post:

    we need more shame and name of these people .at atos!,and would it not be cheaper for our own gp’s to do the assesment.and the fact we are a commodity and have a price tag on our heads is digusting!

    The prison in the ‘ Great city of Leicester’ might just be where Cameron and Iaian Duncan Smith will be incarcerated for their part in the Atos suicides. They should be worried because they will not escape payback for their part in this human atrocity. They should be worried at the exact details of their future sex lives behind bars that will consist of the big bad boys in there using their arses as condoms. They will find out that life is hard without access to appeal against their humiliation. The same humiliation which they imposed upon sick and disabled people. Gonna be a rough ride boys .. no vaseline in there . I want to hear your screams.
