    Hard to believe this can happen in 2013, so maybe it is an indictment of the apathy and selfishness of this new age of right-wing ‘Big Society?’

    The irony as usual, as history teaches us all, is that the real parasites have the power and money they’ve robbed from the poor, to suppress any knowledge of their crimes.

    The meek will not inherit this Earth, so I suggest we make it as publically noisey and painful to our executioners as we can muster!

    “I was only carrying out orders.” – has been tried before!

    It is costing too much. Much of the Welfare Refom Bill budget is going on Lawyers to cover the Genocide tendencies back. With budgets being slashed cut your losses or the Corporate political world will come crashing down with public outrage. £300 an Hour for a DWP lawyer. £1000 an hour for the PMs Lawyer. Using Tax Payers Money. Oh Fiddle Sticks.

    Stay Calm and Carry ON. Smifffy has the answer. Cutting another £3 billion from the welfare budget! Apparently he got this great deal from some fuuny looking guy in austria, who has given him a budget busting deal, on used showers.

    A REPLY FROM DWP FROM A RECENT FREEDOM OF INFORMATION REQUEST ASKING WHAT BODIES RECOGNISE AN ATOS HCPs QUALIFICATIONS TO DO EXAMINATIONS ON CLAIMANTS…..

    Dear Mr Reynolds,
    Freedom of Information Act – Request for Information
    Our Reference: FoI 2207

    Thank you for your Freedom of Information request which we received on 13 May 2013.

    You asked:

    Recently i asked which organisations recognised the ATOS HCP Qualifications, in your reply you
    sent this: The Registered Nurse New Entrant Academy is recognised and has received
    accreditation from the University of Derby. Please highlight all the organisations who recognise it,
    apart from Derby University, who issued it in the first place? Please let me know if you need more
    time to collate the list…………..
    If you have any queries about this letter please contact me quoting the reference number above.

    Atos HCP is not a recognised qualification. It should be noted that health care professionals who
    work for Atos are qualified and registered with their respective medical bodies.

    Yours sincerely

    Business Management Team
    Health & Disability Assessments (Operations)
