DWP reveals 80% target to reject benefit appeals

We already knew there was an 80% target to sanction jobseekers.  Now though it turns out the same figure applies to rejecting benefit appeals.  80% of those who ask for their claim to be looked at again must remain rejected.

DWP try to wriggle out of it by referring to it as an ‘expectation’ but their own staff admit it is a target.

Disgraced ex MP Esther McVey hoping for a comeback in Tatton

The good people of Wirral West kicked out the hated Esther McVey as their MP in 2015. She’s now hoping to succeed George Osborne as the new MP for Tatton.

People of Tatton – do you intend to vote her back in?  She could continue where she left off in 2015.

If everyone who has been victimised by the Tories votes in the general election, Theresa May is sunk

People claiming sickness and disability benefits have been famously victimised by Conservative and Conservative-led governments since 2010. Thousands have died as a result of this mistreatment.

“Scope, the charity for disabled people, tweeted an interesting number when the general election was announced. There are, it said, 13 million disabled people in Britain. Some 89 per cent have said they will vote.

The reason that number is worth paying attention to is that if the 89 per cent are true to their word, and if they use their franchise to hold the Government to account for its brutal treatment of disabled people, it might just spell trouble for Theresa May’s dreams of a three-figure majority.”

Ministers need to be taught that there is a price to be paid for the way they have behaved. A sufficiently high vote against the brutal treatment meted out to people with disabilities by the Government could at the very least deny Theresa May the landslide she is hoping for.

Here are the people we know have died DWP-related deaths.  Think about their families – especially if you plan on not voting at all because that’s just burying your head in the sand.  What if this was someone you knew?

Here are the coroners who have stated their clients have died because of the DWP and Tory policies.

ITV News investigates the benefits system.  Not a single Tory MP wanted to be interviewed on this…

The Tories now have Maximus carrying out the dodgy fit to work tests.  One Maximus Nurse spoke out about the tricks she was told to play on the patients. Again not a single Tory MP wanted to be interviewed on this..

Coronation Street’s full time disabled actress Cherylee Houston speaks out against the dodgy Tory policies. Yet again not a single Tory MP wanted to be interviewed on this. Doesn’t that tell you something? They know they’re doing wrong and they don’t want to comment on it.

DWP CAUGHT hounding people with questionnaires OVER A YEAR TOO EARLY!

Here is yet another story of the DWP continuing to hound vulnerable people in a twisted belief that they have been miraculously cured.

We were contacted by a family who wish to remain anonymous regarding their Autistic son who it has already been established would be a danger to himself and others if he was found fit to work.

The son, we’ll call him Brian is in receipt of Employment and Support Allowance and is in the Support Group intended for the most vulnerable people in society.

Brian was given a document called ‘ESA72’ in the middle of June 2016.  ‘ESA72’ is a document intended for pharmacy staff in order to show a person is exempt from prescription charges (amongst other things).  The second page of the ESA72 reveals when it is due for renewal.

Brian’s ESA72 – page one

Here you can see the issue date of 17th June 2016 (last year)

esa72-17th-june-2016-redacted_page_1

 

Brian’s ESA72 – page two

As you can see from this page Brian is in the ESA Support Group and the DWP have indicated it will be looked at again around August 2018.  Brian was ok with this.  As with many people with Autism he can cope a bit better with things if he is given advance notice of what to expect and when to expect it.

esa72-17th-june-2016-redacted_page_2

Therefore imagine the terror Brian felt when he received this letter dated 16th January 2017 telling him he must do certain things within the next four weeks or face his benefit being stopped completely!  The DWP contacted him SEVENTEEN MONTHS TOO SOON!

16th-january-2017-redacted_page_1

It’s completely unacceptable for the DWP to say they will leave him alone but then change their minds and suddenly contact him seventeen months earlier than he expected with a letter full of demands and perceived threats.  This is harassment.

We invited the DWP to comment on this.  Stuart Woledge from the DWP ‘Professional Communications Directorate’ was initially interested and asked for a chat about it.  In response we provided him with the documents you see above.  Stuart Woledge didn’t wish to pass any further comment after that point, despite us affording him plenty of time to do so.  

Man who cannot talk, read or write told to prove it by DWP

A SEVERELY disabled young man who is unable to talk, read or write and needs round-the-clock care has been targeted yet again by the Department of Work and Pensions.

The DWP have been asked to provide their procedure for communicating with a person who cannot talk, read or write.  They responded with this.
