Dwp examination

A message to all spongers

dwpexamination forum now available at  http://www.dwpexamination.org

The forum has now moved to www.dwpexamination.org

Hello again, in the words of the pub landlord “It’s been a while”, however, I’m back. This time I am on the warpath! “What about ?!  I hear you ask, well, let me tell you. I am getting a bit sick of people emailing me and asking how they can tell if they are being watched by the DWP ?  The answer is simple, if you’re worried that you are under observation, then there must be a reason for it! i.e. you must have something to hide!!!!!   As a person with a “real” disability I have no fear of the grey men with cameras, bring it on I say, it would make a great home movie when I get to my tribunal and show these bastards up for the fools they are.

Somebody's watching you

Somebody’s watching you

See, there I go again. I must say I despise the DWP and anyone who is employed by them. I know you will accuse me of tarring them with the same brush !  but isn’t that what they are doing with us ?  Are the DWP  (or are they not) making the assumption that all disability claimants are potential liars ?  Come on, yes or no? I think the answer is obvious so I am willing to stick my neck out and say quite categorically that all employees of the DWP are narcissistic, sociopathic twats who have a serious god complex.

What do you think ?

God complex

God complex

Anyway, back to my original point. To all you spongers out there who are worried that their scams will be discovered and thus their beer money stopped I say I hope they do catch you and put you in prison where you rightfully belong. To those of you who are worried but have a genuine disability I say don’t worry, you have nothing to hide and will likely as not be alright. Oh and by the way, if you are a scrounger and are on the lookout for some sympathetic support for your alleged case, don’t come looking for it here, you wont find it.

Bye bye beer money

Bye bye beer money

 Update: A reader brought a very important point to my attention today. The reader disagreed with the above statement and has quite rightly pointed out that there are disabled people who suffer from Paranoia, I believe that the above statement is quite clear on those the term scrounger refers to, however, the general term may be mistakenly applied to those who are suffering with this mental condition. Please take this into account when reading the above.

I’ll be back


  1. Funny thing is, incapacity benefit fraud is not as high as the public think, a government commissioned report by a government welfare advisor David Freud (who is in reality an investment banker, with obviously no knowledge of the benefits system in my opinion (and he stated himself he does not know anything about the benefits system, just google him…) states that fewer than one third of incapacity claimaints are genuine!!!

    It also states that its easy to stay on benefits, and that claimaints are only assessed by their own gp’s!

    Pack of lies, yet we have to suffer at the hands of incompetant fools like him, and worse the idiots that hired him in the first place!

    Even the OFFICIAL statistics for incapacity benefit fraud indicate levels of ZERO POINT FIVE percent fraud level, one even indicates ZERO POINT ONE percent for incapacity benefit fraud during 2005/2006.

    That meant that the TOTAL fraud level was 10 million.

    MP’s have already been caught out fiddling well over 500 million of taxpayers money on expenses, and not all mp’s have paid money back, who is on the fiddle when you think about it.

    http://www.dwp.gov.uk/asd/asd2/fem/fem_apr05_mar06.pdf#page=26 for the stats about fraud.

    Benefit fraud is wrong. No doubt about that, but the levels are so low in incapacity benefits that they are almost negligble, the handful of people running this country fiddle than all incap claimaints combined!

    But the public beleive reports like the one by Mr Freud, they watch the benefit fiddle programs, they watch the adverts targetting benefit thieves.

    More money is lost to this country through tax avoidance than benefit fraud, where are the ‘we are closing in, we are coming to get you’ adverts targetting bent corporations and managing directors?

    The Nazis targeted the ill, making them ‘lepers’ in the community, subject to public hatred, the DWP and the government seem to be doing the same, despite facts that prove its just not happening.

    Also, I believe they actually spend MORE investigating benefit fraud than they save… 10 times more I think it was, but I cant find the link to that at the moment.

    If I stumble across it I will post, I may be wrong on the exact amount, but Im sure I read it was noticed by some audit at some point.

  2. Well said Thinkpad, Benefit fraud is wrong, that is an established fact. When you look at some of the more serious cases of fraud and see what has happened to the alleged fraudster i.e. prison, fines, ordered to pay back thousands, then compare that with the thieving M.P.’s who allegedly ‘made a mistake’ and then get off with being allowed to say sorry, one begins to see the unequality in the application of the law. Maybe we should all write to our local chief inspector asking them to investigate our local M.P. Better still, post a petition on the No 10 web site and see how many signatiures it generates.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 20, 2009 @ 1:59 pm

  3. ps, 500 million should be 500 thousand, my apologies, not sure of the exact amount of mp expenses are in question, but the point still stands.

    Comment by thinkpad — June 20, 2009 @ 3:32 pm

  4. It doesnt matter if it was 50p it was still taKen by an MP who abused a system that allowed it to happen in the first place. THEY SHOULD BE MADE TO PAY IT BACK AFTER THEY HAVE BEEN PROSECUTED AND NOT BEFORE!!!!!

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 21, 2009 @ 6:21 am

  5. to all people who think that im a scrouger and that a person who is homless is evil yes iam and god my father told me to chop the publanlords head off amd then slauther his family ! hahahaha i like eating heads !

    Comment by scitzo pu lanlord executuiioner — July 13, 2009 @ 12:10 pm

  6. Wow! I am sorry if you are offended my friend, I have never made a single reference to homeless people being scroungers, and would never do so. The scroungers I am referring to are those people who deliberately and knowingly make a false claim for benefits. For example the man who was prosecuted last year for benifit fraud, he claimed to have back problems and was caught when he was filmed lifting a Mini Metro (he had £30+K before they caught him). Or that other guy who ran a marathon when he said he couldnt walk, (he had £72+k before they caught him) . People who make fraudulent claims make it more difficult for others, and according to a recent documentary particularly those who are homless to make a legitimate and deserving claim. Glad I am not a pub landlord, oh and by the way I wish you well.

    Comment by dwpexamination — July 13, 2009 @ 1:45 pm

  7. If you’re too ill to work a real job, why not come up with some hare-brained scheme for victimising genuinely ill people? The Department for Work and Pensions will happily hand you millions of pounds of taxpayers money. You know, that money that the government is supposedly short of after the rich fuckers running our banks stole it all. Apparently there is still a huge pot of gold for anyone who can think of new and unique ways of destroying the health of already sick people and denying them the benefits that their tax & NI contributions have paid for.

    Comment by Mike — October 26, 2009 @ 7:29 pm

  8. I think its pretty obvious we are a target at present. If in doubt take the easiest route eh? I wonder how these politicians would feel if one of thier own came under the scruitiny of ATOS?

    Comment by dwpexamination — October 27, 2009 @ 4:48 pm

  9. I have to agree the number of times i have had benefit stopped is unbelievable i worked for 29 year’s became ill with M.E. the doctors called it yuppie flu many years ago. But it really worries me because it coincided so much with the overuse of antibiotics. this government also blamed the public for going to the doctors and asking for antibiotics (I suppose we can all write our own prescriptions) this was spin to take the pressure off the medical professionals, we need to ask why doctors were, and still are in many instances in denial about this illness and why they try to make the illness insignificant by calling it chronic fatigue syndrome perhaps they believe that if we are made to look like scroungers they will get away with there mistakes. (They tried to with thalidomide for 30 years) anyway i digress sorry, I have had a medical with ATOS before and yes the doctor lied and i can prove this I SCORED ZERO fortunatley the tribunal has seen things very differently but i am due another medical in the next week or so i am taking a witness this time. i would like to know if we can get enough people together to take some of these doctors to court as i believe by telling lies on the medical forms it amounts to defrauding people of benefits. there must be enough people to put a contribution in so that a solicitor can be approached to do this then we could collectively perhaps sue ATOS. I would like to hear peoples views on this.

    Comment by 7 tribunals later — January 10, 2010 @ 8:44 pm

  10. Hear, hear, I agree, however, there are issues as to who will manage the collection of funds, which solicitor should be approached and which cases would he / she then take to court among other things. A similar and less technical approach may be to organise as many disabled people as possible in the UK and colectively warn the Government of our intentions to cast our votes for the party shpwing the best support policies for the disabled? This would show these idiots that we mean business, anyone interested? I will be commenting soon on a new DWPexaminatin campeign project keep your eyes peeled. Remember, both the main parties tory and labour are in trouble and are attacking the soft target i.e. the disabled to fund thier proposed policies, also both plan massive public spending cuts! Look out I say, they are coming and we are all inthier sights.

    Comment by dwpexamination — January 10, 2010 @ 11:50 pm

  11. To all genuine poorly claimants …you have nothing to worry about we aren’t out to get you. We can tell the scroungers from the genuine one’s. We just want to make sure the one’s that need the support get it quickly and easily. Scroungers you are giving the genuine one’s a bad name.!

    Comment by Civil Servant — March 5, 2010 @ 2:44 pm

  12. Myself and another contact of mine who had to go to Tribunal as well, will gladly support any campaign you instigate.

    Comment by Lynne — March 14, 2010 @ 12:11 pm

  13. i disagree with you that all those who think they are being watched are spongers.

    those with mental health issues can feel they are being watched, by neighbours, by ralatives etc. and yes by the dwp its called parnoia, i believe it is medically recongnise condition.

    dont condemn all those concerned about being watched as sponger please!!! those with mental health issues are suffer terribly under the welfare reforms.

    Comment by joe — March 15, 2010 @ 11:27 am

  14. Point taken and I stand corrected, I must say muy comment was aimed at those poeople who are “fiddling” and thus making life harder for those who are genuinely diabled. I am aware that there are people suffering from paranoia and in no way include them in that generalisation. Thank you for bringing that to my attention, I will make an ammendment to the statement, more of a disclaimer if that helps.

    Comment by dwpexamination — March 16, 2010 @ 8:11 am

  15. To begin with I would urge everybody to check the statue of the ATOS doctor who examined them with the General Medical Council, if they have not carried their job out correctly and they are registered with the GMC make a complaint against them. If the GMC get many complaints about ATOS doctor’s they will have to take them seriously and investigate thoroughly. Their so called ‘Medical Professionals’ will be more careful to do their jobs thoroughly if more of they come under scrutiny of the GMC.

    Comment by Civil Servant — March 5, 2010 @ 2:44 pm

    Total BULLS*** you are in many cases reading a falsified report by an ATOS interrogator who in the majority of cases IMO as no idea of the illness or any related conditions and can legally interpret the claimants answer to make the report sound totally different from what the claimant has said I have a copy of my first interrogation and it read nothing like the answers given even the tribunal staff would not answer questions 2 questions, well 2 question but put as 1, I asked one was why was I cut off in my reply to your questions after 1 word, YES, that is why in other posts I have said those been interrogated should forget the word YES exists
    the second question was why are the interrogators allowed to alter what you say, I doubt I called them interrogators, (my daughter just said I phoned her while leaving the tribunal and said to her that they refused to answer my questions just asking me to wait in the other room to be called back in.)

    Comment by Dean — May 1, 2010 @ 2:11 pm

  17. hmm, however some of us have genuine, extremely debilitating, but fluctuating conditions. the problem is that 99 days out of 100 we may struggle to walk & 1 day feel ok. would you trust the dwp not to only consider that 1 day? i wouldn’t!

    Comment by wizwaz — May 1, 2010 @ 9:23 pm

  18. ATOS IMO try to get claimants to say their condition will improve, and for those with fluctuating conditions ATOS will use the best day rather than a worst day. Those with a condition that can’t be seen without the use of an MRI, CT, X-RAY machine or other equipment that can take images of the inside of the body are in the worst position because ATOS interrogators think like some of the public, they look like there is nothing wrong with them so the report reflects that they are fit for work. My interrogation is on polling day and unlike the last time, when I thought the report was filled with exactly what I gave as an answer to the questions, how wrong I was, when my first flick through sat in the waiting room at the tribunal, I thought I had the wrong report.
    After the 6th May the government will want 1 million at least off disability benefits and back into work, I read that as on JSA and running round from course to course where they are not registered as jobless when on a course(as far as I am aware), and those that will be hit are the disabled with fluctuating conditions or hidden conditions. No wonder the government bought in a third party company to do medicals, they can write a report on you after seeing you for, sometimes, no more than 20 minutes and a few questions as well as looking at you topless for conditions that can not and never will be visible just by looking using their eyes

    wizwas my total bulls*** reply was directed at civil servant but was not meant to be insulting, even though on a second glance with the first 2 words there it seems that way.

    Comment by Dean — May 2, 2010 @ 2:26 am

  19. Thats why it pays to have a witness, they know it makes your life difficult especially if you are easily embarrassed, but if you take someone you can trust, this barrier is removed and you start taking the battle to them. It also makes it difficult for them to misinterpret your answers, though they will try. Oh and by the way, if they ask to have anyone oresent, the answer is NO.

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 2, 2010 @ 7:30 am

  20. Whenever you deal with the DWP always describe how you feel on your worst day. Whats good for the goose eh?

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 2, 2010 @ 7:32 am

  21. Make it as difficult for them as they are making it for you. Take someone with you to take notes, you may need to jog your memory if you need to go to a tribunal. Use the form on the assessing ATOS page, some readers have and said it not only helped but made taking notes easier too. Also keep a record of any communications you have with ATOS afterall, they record your conversations on the phone and probably in the examination room. The more we put these fools under pressure, the more likely it is they will feel like not going to work and that can only benefit us. Lets take the battle to them for once.

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 2, 2010 @ 7:39 am

  22. I am getting a bit sick of people emailing me and asking how they can tell if they are being watched by the DWP? The answer is simple, if you’re worried that you are under observation, then there must be a reason for it! i.e. you must have something to hide!!!!!

    OOOHHHH!!!!! dwp does that mean you think I am a benefit scrounger because I keep my curtains shut because every time I try and open or shut them the track falls down and it takes me over an hour to get the 2 rawl plugs and the curtains back up, so it is easier to leave them shut or if a family member opens them ask then to shut them before they leave, no matter what time of day it is.

    I am only joking about you thinking I am a scrounger dwp, but keeping the curtains shut for whatever reason will get people talking and I would love the interrogator to ask why are my curtains shut all the time, that’s if they could ever find the place.

    Comment by Dean — May 23, 2010 @ 11:18 am

  23. I am glad you see my point. I am aware that my comment has raised concern amongst the disabled community and understand why some people will get upset about it, and in many cases quite rightly so, however, I will not withdraw it. The reasoning behind my statement is, if the question has to be asked, what is the reason for doing so? I am aware that there are people out there who suffer from paranoia and similar mental conditions which, by thier nature cause feelings of being watched and an allowance must be made for them by those of us who are not in that awful and very stressful situation.

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 24, 2010 @ 7:45 am

  24. My curtains are shut all the time too, Dean. I wake up early Around 3 – 4am and nap throughout the day. Medication and my illness make me very tired.
    I try to go to sleep at night, around 10pm – so there’s no point opening them, innit?
    I owe money to Gas, Electric, Water, Phone, companies… and if they send debt collectors round, I’m not in!
    I’d pay my debts, if I had an income. No income for over a year, and I’ve had to sell my table + chairs, my double bed, some clothes – which ain’t gonna fit me now I’m obese, and my car! Just to buy food for me and my 2 kids!
    Waited a year for the DWP to reach a conclusion… they awarded me ESA, but said they’d overpaid me Income Support – which I wasn’t entitled to last year… before the ESA claim, and took all the money they owed off me! They said they can do that, and don’t have to ask. Guess who’s appealing against that decision?!
    It’s true that the men who work for the DWP have thin willys – tight fisted ba**ards… but the women there are as wide as the Watford Gap – lose yourself in there if you’re not careful! LOL!
    My medical examiners (2) were of the female species. The chap who examined me the first time was a real wa*ker… rubbed his hands throughout the whole process, stopping to type shite on @puter in between. UGH! Where the Hell do these people crawl out from?
    *£100 for each medical examination, and an extra £300 if they fail you! Greedy ATOSsers!
    They deemed my neighbours disabled though. Both are slobs. Never worked a day in their entire lives. Contributed a fat fanny adams towards taxes & NI, but managed to have 6 or 7 kids! ~ And they’re depressed! Depressed when the DLA and Income Support runs out and can’t afford beers, so come scrounging round to mine with scabby kids in tow!
    I’m fed up of this pathetic system the fools at the DWP are running.
    More fed up with the government.
    It’s as if no one learns a damn thing from the past!
    Circle gets bigger, and bigger as does the nation debt and my anger. GRRR!

    you over paid moaning spastic.

    Comment by pissed off with moaning dead heads — June 20, 2010 @ 7:23 pm

  26. Mmmm, It will be interesting to hear what the DWP actually have t say about this comment. Never mind, I said free speech and no censorship and that is how it will remain. I hope someone from the DWP will read this and look through thier email records for the ISP Maybe its a DWP workstation computer? maybe they recognise the ISP as one of thier employees. I dont knw free speech rules here, unlike the DWP offices throughout the UK.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 21, 2010 @ 6:19 am

  28. Oh in addition, this site has had over 40,000 hits, of which 1,178 comments have been posted, of which 4 were negative (and one of those is in doubt) so the score is 1174 positive 4 negative 40,000 readers cant be wrong?

  29. Now now, lets play nice, there are young people reading this and we dont want to stoop to the level of our critics, do we?

  30. Thats OK Franka, I feel your anger and frustration. Keep on commenting though, we dont want to lose you.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 22, 2010 @ 6:35 am

  31. Glad you reported him, as you are aware all cals are recorded for “training purposes” so go get him. Speak to a solicitor, I am sure personal attacks on clients and thier families are not allowed under any circumstances. Also write to your MP demanding an investigation. Its time that people like this obnoxious man were brought to book.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 23, 2010 @ 6:09 am

  32. They say all calls are recorded for training purposes but when I made reference to certain telephone conversations I had with several different ‘telephony agents’ I was told that the taped conversations could not be found. Do you think this was a deliberate obstruction?

    Comment by Anonymous — June 23, 2010 @ 8:07 pm

  33. Definately, and the norm for the DWP and ATOS. They usually cant (conveniently) find evidence that proves they are at fault.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 24, 2010 @ 7:22 am

  34. Hey, DWPexam… please, pretty please try to delete my awful comments here as the DWP are conducting an investigation into pencil dicks comment. :ooh:

    Other than the missing recorded phone call, I’m polite and very pleasant. :lol:
    > I am though. x x x

    Comment by Franka — June 28, 2010 @ 1:41 am

  35. Hi, i went for a dwp axamination by atos, this was my second one in 2 years. My first one was fine and id got myself alworked up for nothing. So when the second one come along because i had 3 new conditions and the previous one had become worse, i thought to myself ill be ok. I WAS WRONG!!!! I have never been so humilated in my life ( and i was headgirl at school), the doctor was horrible and never did a full examination.When i recieved a copy of the report it was full of lies, false quotes and riddled with contraditions.I dont know whhat to do, the saparone that he sent for could easily see how distressed i was and i thought would i be able to get a satement of her to say what she saw. Also i would like them to check their cctv to prove that i did not open the door in and out of the room. My doctor, my specalist and my psycoligist all stae im ill in reports and 3 of my conditions have no cure.He can not denie i am ill but why can he lie and say he did thing he never did.he never even asked me all the questions. Can anyone help i have my tribunal soon. Atos health care phone me on the Monday and said i had to attend on the wednesday, because of this my support worker never had enough notice and neither did my mum so i had to be droped of on my own, but like i said i thought i would be fine becuase id been before

    Comment by zoe — June 28, 2010 @ 12:42 pm

  36. Zoe your experience sounds pretty similar to mine. You should report the doctor to the GMC because he has not put your health first as he should do by the terms and conditions of the Fitness to Practice rules. You must also put in a complaint to the Jobcentre Plus and to Atos Healthcare, they both have complaints forms that you must fill out. My MP was very helpful and got my complaint excalated to the Area Manager for Jobcentre Plus. Don’t be bullied, don’t let them get away with this. The benefit system is hugely damaging to people like us and there needs to be change but change will only happen if we all fight together. They will take your complaint seriously if you involve the General Medical Council. The doctor who did my medical also lied and said he had carried out the full examination when he had not. Be strong and fight, go to the Citizen’s Advice Bureau they will help.
    Good luck and remember we are here to give you support, we’re all in the same boat.

  38. Hey Franka, was reading that commment by the hitler lover, there’s no way that bozo works for the DWP, no way…that is just a 69 IQ moron, and i would love to meet him, he would be elegible for the support group after i had done with him.

    Comment by David — July 2, 2010 @ 1:05 pm

  39. Hi David,
    I just wanted my comments deleted as I got really nasty with that w***er and wrote some things in his favour… all true. LOL! But not something the DWP want to read about – a w****er online who may/may not work for them.
    You see, I had a very impolite phone conversation a few days before that post with a male at the DWP Debt Management who was too coarse, to say the least.
    I don’t give two figs who or where he works, the fact is he got personal.
    Stating he works for the DWP is like admitting he’s a w***ker, innit?
    I doubt the DWP are going to do much, if anything about my complaint. I made a complaint and would like them to inform me about what actions they took to prevent such a person ever doing this to anyone again.
    Well, he seems to have been scared off the group… but like flies to shit, he’ll return and thrive on it.
    Makes you wonder how sick some people are (DWP employees or not), and if they actually just seek attention because they’re thinking their sickness entitles them to some sort of benefit. Ha!

    Comment by Franka — July 3, 2010 @ 8:56 am

  40. I doubt very much if the coversation was recorded, because if it was he’s for it, because bad as though the DWP are, they dont tolerate twits like that, especially using crude personal language.

    So perhaps it was a coincedence, that the Hitler lover appeared just right after the talk with the DWP worker, and you must remember it’s just talk and seems annoying and unbearable at the time, but not long into the future you will have basically forgotten all about it.

    As you can see dee dub has advertised his IPS number, and if he works for the DWP they will be on to that straight away, but i suspect it’s just a drifter without a life to lead, scouring the net looking for folk to upset, there’s thousands of them all over the world, there was even a few on the Sack ATOS petition, one twit said and i paraphrase with spelling mistakes ” A want free muney, it’s my write, how can a pay fore ma sky pakige” this is the nonsense we are up against, imagine what it must be like working for the DWP, with all the crackpots of the day phoning up with idiotic and impossible demands, dont get me wrong i have had more than my fair share of problems with thE DWP but i dont take it personaly any longer, and just go with the flow, i found my life became a hell of a lot easier.

    CHEERS from DAVID.

    Comment by David — July 3, 2010 @ 1:05 pm

  41. Hmm… the verdict is as follows: “We take each compliast against out employees very seriosly. However, we have no proven details to further our search, although you have provided us with an ISP identity, we cannot violate privacy.
    The person you say is called “Anderson” is not employed or known to us.

    I’m calling Debt Management in the morning, insisting I speak to Anderson…

    Let it not be allowed, for we have fucking rights!

    Comment by Franka — July 8, 2010 @ 6:33 pm

  42. They wont tell you if it’s one of their employees, it will be dealt with internally, obviously revealing to you there’s a problem with an employee thats caused you harm, could give you possible grounds to sue them.

    I dont believe anyone would be stupid enough to use a works computer, so whoever it was has almost certainly used a personal device at home or an internet-cafe.

    Anyway keep in touch and let us know of any interesting developments.

    As i said you get these twits all the time, i remember one on another page on this blog, who said something along the lines of ”ATOS are best, go get job you scroungers want to lie in bed all day, while i work etc”

    So then, if he/she works, why was he/she getting a medical with ATOS,who obviously passed him/her fit for work, so what was the point of going for the assessment then, if he/she already believes they are fit for work.

    So then it doesn’t take a veritable einstein to work out, that that particular person is just a troublemaker.

  43. Just out of curiousity (and pointing fingers)… But has anyone read about the former Somalian assylum seekers and their new pad? A 2.1 million pound property he demanded to rent and gets £8,000 a month rent for!
    Now that’s what I call a sponger!!
    Our own homeless can’t afford £12 a night to stay in a shelter… yet the government bend rules for foreigners.

  45. The world has gone mad. Bet he’s in for an interview shortly though

    Comment by dwpexamination — July 13, 2010 @ 5:50 pm

  46. Naah. What interview? he’s “special circumstances”.
    Made the news last year too… with another home he rented for full whack!
    The council have decided to look into his renewal next year, so he’s safe till April, then will find a bigger and more expensive pace to abide. LOL!

    Comment by Franka — July 13, 2010 @ 7:17 pm

  47. Sadly, youre right. He’s an asylum seeker, which appears at first glance to allow him access to a “superior” support mechanism to which the general population of the UK dont have. Isnt our (the disabled) case at least as strong or important as his is? Isnt it time that the support groups started practicing what they preach and treat every case with the same care and attention, regardles of race, colour, creed, sexual orientation, status etc?

    Comment by dwpexamination — July 14, 2010 @ 7:26 am

  48. I really think it’s time I moved to Kensington!
    I know I joke about living there, I don’t… but should. Year after year I read about some Somali asylum seeker robbing the government of thousands of our taxes, and even when they’re brought to “justice” they’re treated with sympathy and never go to prison, let alone pay back what they’ve stolen!

    I live worse than “below the poverty” line.
    I’m having to pay back nearly £20 a fortnight out of my ESA a fortnight – which was due to an overpayment the DWP made up as I kept them informed of my circumstances and any changes on a regular basis.

    Surely the Somali’s – being refugges n’all ought to grateful for a roof over their heads, and food… but oh no, they have great advisers who tell them to go for the best, and get it!
    We, the disabled are advised to go through a tonne of red tape and stress, for a pittance to get by on, and when we get it, we’re so grateful!

    It’s time for this government to realise that a population is made up of various kinds of people, who all have equal rights, regardless of their circumstances and all should be treated as special… afterall, it’s us, the people who elect the one’s in power. > Not even sure a (former) asylum seeker has a right to vote.

    GRRR! Things that make me go ARGH!

    Comment by Franka — July 14, 2010 @ 4:02 pm

  49. Youre right, its like I said. We have a 2 tier system here whicvh puts the rights of those who have contributed less to our society above those who have contributed all thier working lives. Its a disgrace, but if the chancellor had said we are going to crack down on asylum seeking welfare benefit scroungers he would have been jailed? The mind boggles

    Comment by dwpexamination — July 15, 2010 @ 7:04 am

  50. Nope. Asylum seekers have no right to vote.
    They have special rights though, that allow them to soak up thousands of tax payers money.
    They have rights and lawyers who’ll defend their fraudulant claims – at a cost to us again.
    Here’s food for thought… you know the former asylum seekers that were in the news didn’t even have to pay a deposit or administration fees for their new home? Someone tells me the council paid it!
    Oh, and even with neighbours complaining to have this family moved… the council say they don’t want to upset the family and kids by moving them out of the area as the kids are settled in a school.
    > They moved in last month. The kids are not even in school. They’re at the top of the list for entry in September! Ooh, ooh… and they’ve claimed for another set of new uniforms and free school meals!!!
    Next year the council will look into renewing their claim for rent, and according to the new rules their Housing Allowance will be cut to £400 a week, yeah right! I’m already seeing a long court case with human rights lawyers fannying around like flies making millions out of these circumstances… while we just get used to being harassed by the DWP for our rightful benefits.
    Makes me sick!

  52. I am in NO way a scrounger, nor am I clinically or even just colloquially paranoid, but I am suffering from severe & debilitating depression, with regular suicidal “ideation” following a series of personal tragedies.
    Some days I can pull my s4*t together though, and go out looking and feeling semi-OK, and try to act like a normal person – the days I dont go out, I’m often as not inside vomiting because Ive been crying so long, and considering ending it all.
    The idea that someone with a camera and the same kind of selective reporting as the ATOS crew is going to use the days I do sort my stuff out against me as ‘proof’ of fraud is worrying, and I only risked posting this here and long after this thread quitened down because I feel that there are people who are neither scroungers nor paranoid who might worry about this. I hope to get back into work soon, Im getting treatment, but I have an ATOs assessment next week and that’s why I’m here because I don’t trust them, and that’s not paranoia either. ;)

Iv completly give up, I have an incurable diease and they woount give me dla so im not going to keep fighting it when all they say is no, they want me to wait a few years untill im really bad they then will help. I carnt see this being the only way but its certainly becomung the “norm” for DLA.

    Comment by zo — May 11, 2011 @ 12:23 pm

  56. They are trying to sicken you by making it as difficult as possible, and that applies to all benefits, ESA/IB, DLA the lot, if you think your entitled you should keep fighting and make it as difficult as possible for them as well.
    For everyone who drops out is just an excuse for them to say AH HA another one of the books, so for that alone you shouldn’t give up, show them you refuse to bend to their will and becoming another one of their statistics..!!

    http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/index.php And fight them.

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 11, 2011 @ 12:43 pm

  57. Thankyou for the comment and i know i shouldnt give up im even thinking of saving up and going private to see if that helps. They want me to attend psyio and other appointments to try and ease my symtoms yet they are unwilling to help with the travel cost. Psyio is miles away and iv not got a carer so i carnt go and thats a remember iv got appoinments because of my memory. They really do make me laugh they moan about money this money that, if they helped you in the first place you wouldnt need more resources of them in the future. If i was to recieve help now i would have time to find medication that suits me and then even maybe return to education just to refresh and go back into work. But they dont want to do that. They carnt take my dissablity premium off because because i will aways be lky this but with the right medication my bad days can become somewhat easier. I dont want to do nothing for the rest of my life and i dont understand why a job carnt accomadate my needs. Im not uneducated and i worked for 4 years before i became ill but im only 23 and i dont want this to be it for me. We can have so much to offer this world but they wont let us because there is no inbetween for them.

  59. They want everyone to go private, that’s one of their dream goals, the NHS is staying and that’s that, Cameron can go and take a running jump and he can take his idiotic work for nothing big society with him, nobodies interested in his deluded ideas.

    Their plan is to stop welfare, get us all on food stamps (Like in the USA) and sleeping rough, they are not interested in anyones needs or helping them to find work.
    It’s all a con and that’s why we must fight them, that’s why we must keep posting and commenting on blogs and forums like this and http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 11, 2011 @ 6:24 pm

  60. Further to my earlier comment regarding my functional assessment, as expected the Dr was a nice chap, shook my hand and wished me all the best, as I have already stated I could have written the assessment and what was going to happen in there before I even went in the door.

    It’s hard to believe that human beings can be so nice to your face, but silently and ruthlessly plot your downfall, no wonder some people prefer the company of animals.

    Imagine this for a moment, just imagine you were whisked of to another planet, a thousand light years away, and after landing there and admired the scenery, you noticed that one particular life form on that planet was totally dominant towards the other species on the planet.

    Hunting the other species, catching them and hanging them upside down and slitting their throats, catching them on hooks bashing their heads in with clubs burning them and eating them, catching others and keeping them as pets, keeping them in cages and teaching them to do tricks for their own amusment.
    And moreover the more dominant of that species were even cruel and ruthless towards members of their own kind.

    What would you think of that planet ? what would you think of that particular species ?.


    Some say that there is no life on other planets, or at least no advanced intelligent life, i say there is plenty of life out there, and i wouldn’t be surprised if they have seen us, and they know about us, they have seen enough and they sure as fuck don’t want to have anything to do with us..!!

    Someone said that the surest proof that other advanced life forms exist, is the fact that we don’t know about them and/or have even bothered themselves to visit us.
    Well if you came from another planet, would you bother yourself to come all the way to this shithole !!

    Comment by dwpexamination — May 12, 2011 @ 6:27 am

  61. i agree with your core argument, but as the dwp exam is for disability not sickness, it is an unfair test, My gf is recovering from breast cancer complicated by just before being diagnosed had cepticemia /peritonitus, the after effects of the cancer treatment is lymphodemia, the after effects of the herceptin treatment, leaves her exhausted after a 4 to 500yd walk (dwp say your fit if you can walk 200yds??) but has failed to gain any points on her medical?? but the alcoholic across the road has been awarded full incapacity and mobility!! i think they should target those who self inflict there problems :- alcoholics, junkies, the obese etc not those with genuine illness or disabilities!

    Comment by chip — June 24, 2011 @ 2:17 pm

  62. Hi Chip.

    ESA is for anyone with genuine health problems, therefore the DWP examination should be identifying the genuine with health problems like your Girlfriend, zero points is ridiculous and she should appeal immediately.
    You can get help here at http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/ and get great advice.

    As for the fakers, well they will be found out soon enough when they come to get tested, so don’t worry about them, theyr’e in for a surprise.

    Comment by dwpexamination — June 24, 2011 @ 2:45 pm

  63. already in appeal had a prelim notice the decision will not be over ruled!! even with letters from her gp and Cristies consultant!! as Atos are using unqualified people, it is not a fair test as it is only a disability test not a sickness test, so those who are not disabled, will not get points, as the test alows for alcoholics, junkies and obese to be classified as disabled, it needs to be rethought, as i say i agree there are a lot of spongers but it seems a lot of genuine people are being punished, i am currently advising anyone in the same situation to report the doctor or nurse to either the GMC or nursing and midwifery council, with a view to having any doctor or nurse, to have there licence reviewed. As the dwp have decided to use an american co that has been banned in a few american states from dealing in health issues, why are we using them?? at a greater cost than the gp’s the old dhss used, which did work, if they gave the GP’s who where doing previos examinations the updated criteria, it would have saved a goood few million pounds a year, but as Atos are on contract to fail a high percentage to enable them to keep the contract, this makes it unjust and unfair!!

  67. I suffer from severe mental illness Depression, social anxiety and I have been out today all day. I get paranoia too and everywhere I turn I feel I am being followed yet it is a struggle for me to leave my home. when I have achieved it I feel people are out to get me! I called my mum constantly during the time I’m out to put it into perspective logically. I have suffered with this for nearly 3 and a half years and I have two children who get frustrated at home. Everytime I have a good moment and go to the park with my son I feel people are following and taking photos. What to do????

  69. Yes of course I have been under a community mental health team for over a year however my care has come to an end… They are referring me to mindfulness as my condition hasn’t helped with meds and psychotherapy. They do want to try another drug for epilepsy but I am feeding a 5 month old at the moment so I cannot take anything till I stop as it is not safe. In which case my condition is worse. I meet up with someone from rethink once a week and yesterday when I met her I felt people were following in vans and observing me. I know about surveillance etc.. As my cusion use to do the job so I know how real it is… Even though I have nothing to hide if they are checking it doesn’t help my problem.

  71. Absolutely. It is terriable how people who r really ill who can’t get the help they need awful. I get ESA. I am entitled to other help but only claim the basic even though I have always paid my stamp. I feel you should only claim enough to get by so that is what I do.

    It is terrible how people can get thousands and thousands it is just abuse to the DWP absolutely awful….

    Comment by Gemma — October 12, 2011 @ 6:40 pm

  72. I believe in claiming what I’m due, which at the moment is not much just the assessment rate, but if I’m entitled to more I will claim it, and I advise anyone else to do the same, it’s everyone’s right to claim what’s rightfully theirs.
    Did our fathers go through two world wars for this shower of bastards to just take it off us ? this Government without a mandate to just ride roughshod over us with their draconian welfare reform along with their evil intention to destroy the National health service, I don’t think so.

    Claim what you are due then and no more is what I say !! because they will give you nothing if you don’t.

If you don’t look disabled then you aren’t disabled is what he seems to think? Dont forget we are all scroungers in the eyes of the press and the government particularly those who have disabilities that cant be seen. So whenever you see disability hate crime in the newspapers, on TV or witness it first hand make sure you repoort it immediately you can do this by contacting Crimestoppers.

    Comment by Arbeitsscheu_UK — December 15, 2011 @ 4:18 pm

  74. I suffer from two chronic conditions that my specialist says won’t get better because the NHS failed to treat the initial injury properly, whilst on benefits I’ve done voluntary work and a permitted work trial. Both aggravated my conditions with the work trial lasting two days doing 3 hours for a fortnight before it was obvious it was having an effect on my condition, I’ve had several appeals and won them yet ATOS continue to lie and put me into vulnerable positions for months at a time, I was unwell for days after my last successful appeal and it too the DWP about six weeks to reinstate what the panel said I was entitled too.

    I would love to work but my ill health soon effects me, I have however created a disabled aid that has been given to thousands of people in the UK just to prove that despite my illness I have something to offer. Whilst ill I have created work for about twelve UK businesses some was a one off and several get repeat work, some of them would like to employ me but my chronic conditions undermine what I’d like to do.

    Against my advisers advice I told the Appeal Panel what I’d done, what I wanted to do and how it affected me, also told them that I followed my specialists instructions to not let the pain stop me from getting out because he said stopping because of pain would make my condition worse just as would overdoing things. It’s a fine line between moving and not overdoing things but I am ill enough and want to try and stop getting worse.

    Comment by Ian M Davies — December 15, 2011 @ 4:48 pm

  75. I was listening to a video on YouTube the other day, uploaded by one of a group of disability attorneys. In it he reminded his clients of the standard advice that they should always think that they are being videotaped, but the real focus of this chat was the question of facebook (and other social media).

    Firstly, he said, remember that the investigators from the insurance companies will check up on Facebook to see if you are on there. If you do something silly like posting photos of yourself skiing, then perhaps you deserve to have a letter saying that if you can manage a skiing holiday, then perhaps you can work.

    He went on to say, however, that you have to be rather more careful than that. If someone takes a picture of you looking happy at a family christening party, then the insurance company will use that as evidence that you are not in constant pain, as you claim. In fact if you can GET to a family party, then clearly travel is not a problem for you.

    Now our own DWP does do surveillance to prove people are working when they say they unemployed, or able to work when they say they are sick. They have been listening to Unum’s advice on “claim management”, so I guess they will now be looking you up on facebook too.

    And they are probably reading all these blog posts by people who say they can’t work. But, as someone pointed out on one disability blog – “If you can write all this stuff then you could manage to earn at home – look at J K Rowling.”

    The ability to protest is going to be used against us.

  78. What posts are you critising ? and what posts are you talking about ? your comment doesn’t make sense, if you have something to say please say it rather than critising folk who are ill and just trying to find help.
    Perhaps you have certain issues, sorry we can’t help you with that, please see a Dr, but if you are appealing against an unfair decision by ATOS or the DWP we may be able to help, in fact we will try our very best to make sure you are not deprived of your rights, and that’s any rights, your right to a fair tribunal, your right to certain benefits that may be due, and your human rights, of course if you don’t value your own or others human rights then this is not the Blog for you, please go somewhere else, I hear the BNP do a good Blog, haven’t actually seen it myself but that’s what I heard, maybe ah yes I’m sure it was the Daily mail what told me…

    Comment by dwpexamination — December 16, 2011 @ 7:50 pm

  79. The question of who is a scrounger or malingerer is an emotive one. Fluctuating and hidden conditions are difficult to assess and whenever I say I am disabled people always think they have the right to an opinion regardless of their medical training or knowledge ( or lack of!!!). I’m sick of having to justify myself to every single person. Being followed is also a horrible situation to be in. I was followed by private detectives working for an insurance company. Its true you don’t have anything to worry about if you are genuine but its also true most claimants try to paint themselves in a positive light when being assessed. I was advised years ago to always be my worst when in any assessment situation but IMO its human nature to try when someone is encouraging you to do your best.
    Finally if you are being followed you can’t do anything about it. You won’t get any admission from anyone and trying is pointless.
    I have had benefits stopped numerous times because someone has used the grass line to make up something about me.

    Comment by neil — December 18, 2011 @ 1:55 pm

  80. I’m in the process of appealing and going to tribunal as my DLA was stopped. It had previously been the highest level for care and lowest for mobility, gone to nothing in one go. The DWP made their decision based on one medical report where a Doctor said I had “improved”. I have letters written within a month before and within a month after that medical report where the same Doctor acknowledges how ill I am and how I need regular monitering, the medical report was just reporting ‘one particular good day’ for me as I do vary from day/week to day/week.

    I’m just saying this as your post above berates people for being anxious about being watched by the DWP, and while I am not as I have far more serious things to worry about I do have a fear of having a good day/week which might get reported to the DWP and I might lose my ESA or whatever just based on that! I dare not have a good day! What if I get spotted??!!

    Comment by Fiz — December 29, 2011 @ 2:48 pm

  81. Hello Fiz.

    It’s good to see you are appealing, and you can see their whole idea is to force you to appeal or drop out, the DMs decision is normal and the appeal panels know they try every trick in the book to deny you your right to benefits, so you don’t need to worry about that, you also don’t need to worry about the medical report that says you have improved because at the tribunal you just don’t show it (There’s no law that says you have to show it to anyone) because this is about you and your life and that means showing the appeal tribunal anything that helps you, and showing nothing that helps the DWP.
    If you need help with the appeal you can get some here http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/ from like minded people who have seen it, done it and worn the tee shirt.

  82. I am a carer – personal assistant, 2 of my ‘service users’ gave up the fight, one went into a care home (they wanted to live at home but without care this was not possible) the other sold up and literally bribed their family with the proceeds of their sale (and guess what, the council are now funding some ‘care in the community’ ) -how is this saving the Government money??? any more of my clients tossed into the ‘no support required’ category I may as well sign-on – Carers will soon be redundant…..swelling the JSA queues, my ladies were genuine disabled & I was really stressed trying to help :( I couldn’t convince them to fight any longer.

    Comment by will be jobless — January 29, 2012 @ 7:41 pm

  83. Hello WBJ. and everyone who is reading this.

    Well the next time you can say that appealing is not a problem because there is help available, welfare rights can help, and we can help.
    It’s only stressful if you make it stressful that’s their whole idea to create stress in fact so much stress that we just give up the fight, but once you realise what they are trying to do and with help combat it the stress disappears.

    So why are they creating all this stress ? isn’t this counter productive ? not really because once you see what their whole point is then it all fits in to place, and their first point is that they want to reduce the sickness benefit figures whether they reduce the sickness or peoples health problems is irrelevant they don’t care because that’s not what its about, and as I said it’s all about reducing the figures even if it costs them money because you see it’s a Government propaganda lie that there is no money left, and that brings me to the next point, since they are not saving money but actually wasting money then you could ask well where is this money going and why are they wasting it ?, and I can tell you that it’s not really wasted as such, it’s just wasted because it’s not going to the rightful people but going to the Governments rich friends like Action for work, ATOS healthcare and other parasitical corporate companies.

    So once this is accomplished and the majority of people have been deprived of their right to benefit and the NHS has been dealt with in a similar manner and we have all died off or killed ourselves with the stress then the next stage will appear, which is the insurance companies like the outlawed American company UNUM Provident http://www.lawyersandsettlements.com/case/first_unum?ref=article step in and tell you (They are already doing it, advertising on the tele) that there is no point in trying to get sickness benefits in the future so why not get private work/health insurance with us, if you fall ill we will look after you, you will find our health insurance package is very reasonable and our hospitals top class, but after you pay their exorbitant monthly fees and one day you fall ill and cannot work then that’s when you get your first shock because you will get a letter that will say GO GET JOB YOU SCROUNGER does the reader understand what I am trying to say, are the people of this Country going to flippen wake up, because I am sick fed up explaining this to people week after week after week.
    Sorry if I sound angry, it’s because I am angry and also because I am watching the people of this Country virtually giving up their rights that their parents fought for in the last war, we can do something about it, we can show this Government that we are aware and through sites like this http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/ prepared to do something about it.

    The alternative is to do nothing and GET STOOD ON AND SQUASHED..!!

And as for the rest of the country when are they going to wake up and see that if you have to work for a living you are WORKING Class, not middle class,, not Upper Class BUT WORKING class, some may make more than other s b ut we are all WORKING CLASS! and with that we are also all human and susceptible to accidents health issues which make us disabled. WE all have a vested inteest to stop the We;fare reforms before it is too late

  86. Just got zero score and my benefit stopped. I hve appealed but almost gave up on my life because of their treatment of me. The doctor made me feel worthless and useless. Your site has gave me a little hope

  87. Hello deedee.

    Everyone just about gets zero points there’s nothing unusual about that, glad to see you have appealed, show them some medical evidence and describe your inability to function regarding the descriptors and you will win.
    There are thousands of us so you are not alone out there, if you need help or just want to see what’s happening then tune in to the forum http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/index.php.

  88. In response to the original post, would like to respectfully make the point that while i agree its reasonable to conclude someone with a fear of being under observation by the DWP likely had something to hide, at the same time not everyone who has something about their private life they d prefer the DWP not to know is a scrounger. Plenty of claimants find out the hard way being too open with the truth works against them so naturally feel they cant trust the DWP with sharing too much information, but which might get found out under observation and used as a weapon to abuse them, and could easily be given some of the ways Welfare Benefit law is set up.

  90. Hey DWP Examination ;-)

    I think, very sadly, this is what society is coming to. :-( The DWP and Atos are using such nasty cunning tactics, that they re in only too easy a position to succeed with, against people with genuine problems that disrupt their ability to work, it intimidates many people into feeling they have to hide certain things, because they learn if they don’t most likely the information will not be accepted or treated in a reasonable way. Sadly if they were caught out doing this, on the surface, it could easily look to an outsider like they d been making up they had an illness or disability and like they re the same as people who deliberately con the DWP because they get a pleasure kick out of it. It would be only too easy for the DWP to make out this was the case too. This is all thanks to the likes of those in Labour and The Conservatives who have got into power in recent decades, as far as i can personally anyway, who seem determined to screw as many

  92. Hello Emma.

    Your right and it’s been going on since at least 0CT 2008, that’s when all this nonsense really took off, it doesn’t matter what the health issue are with anyone. they have decided to hand out zero points to see if they will sign on or appeal, they hope we sign on of course that suits them best, and appealing ? well who really wants to wait up to a year to appeal and then go through the whole process again ? unless they had genuine health issues.
    It’s a con and nothing but a complete shambles, I urge every person with health issues who has been turned down by ATOS to appeal, and keep appealing, they will give up before we do as long as we keep at it..!!

    Comment by dwpexamination — March 6, 2012 @ 1:25 pm

  93. Hey again DWP Examination

    Completely agree with what you said. I didn’t realise this all started specifically around October 2008! Makes perfect sense to me though, as that’s was when i had to stop working in my last job. Id already had problems getting work, and retaining jobs, in large part because of anxiety and panic problems, for some time but had never claimed ESA before. That was my second attempt to try to be successful with holding a job down after a course of therapy which i hoped would enable me to manage my problems well enough so it wouldn’t interfere with work performance. It didn’t work out, both employers dismissed me within weeks. I knew most likely just the same thing would occur next time i tried working in a job, assuming i could even get one with my patchy work record. So though i was initially put back on JSA i felt so bad about it, knowing how my problems were affecting my ability to cope with being in a work environment, i felt it would be the right honest thing to tell the DWP and claim ESA early 2009. Looking back, after some of the appalling treatment ive been on the receiving end of since, i wonder why i even bothered caring about what was fair to them. Seems to me they just want to exploit people who are too honest with them.

    Comment by Emma286 — March 7, 2012 @ 12:00 pm

  94. Now as if things weren’t already bad enough, this Welfare Reform Bill has gone through meaning lots more sick and disabled people are going to lose out on benefits. Hopefully there will be something advice agencies can do to help at least some of them, im keeping my fingers crossed. And agreeing, where there s an appeal option available its definitely worth trying!

    Comment by Emma286 — March 7, 2012 @ 12:11 pm

  95. Your right Emma, it’s all going to get worse, they want to cut the funding to the advice agencies as well, they want everyone of sickness benefits, it was all sneakily planned by Tony Blair years ago, the tories are taking of where they left off, the only difference is the Tory boys want to do it quicker because they know that they are finished come the next election.

    People will be flocking to Blogs and forums like this http://dwpexaminations.blacktrianglecampaign.org/phpBB3/ in the future because there will be no CAB or Welfare rights left, and any that are left will be charging money, so learn all you can Emma and start learning now because we/you will be on your own someday.

  98. I recently appealed against my atos medical and lost although I have limited mobility due to arthritis have suffered with diarrohea for several months due to food allergies. I dont go out and havent been for over a year (although I still go to my GPs my friends give me a lift) which as resulted in severe vitamin D deficiency. I am in extreme discomfort in bed and can barely sleep which leaves me tired all day. I dont have a social life but a couple of friends come around to help me out with shopping and cleaning. I am in constant pain. Yet my appeal failed. These people are not playing God they are actually Satanic and belong to a Satanic cult of the most evil species on earth. The meek shall inherit the earth bring it on I am sick of it all.Although I believe that this problem needs looking at by the Court of Human rights in Europe. We are one of the worst looked after nations in Europe.

    It’s hard to believe and in normal circumstances I wouldn’t believe you, this is not a normal situation and I know what the systems all about, you need to re-apply for ESA and this time try and get help from the CAB or welfare rights.
    Yes you can re-apply there’s nothing to stop you if your condition has worsened or you have a new health issue, even on your next appeal you can still win, the chances are you got a hanging judge I know it’s possible because I’ve had one.

  102. The mentally ill will and are suffering so much under this governments new ‘regime’.

    I have my medical on 26th June..Got the dreaded letter 2 days ago! I have to prepare myself and it’s proving difficult…
    I cannot even attend the WRAG interviews, I have to do this by phone (didn’t the DWP note this on my last phone interview?) wtf..They are either thick or ignorant,or both.

    I am biopolar and also suffer from agraphobia and panic attacks. I have suffered from this condition since the aged of 14years old…Well, this is when I remember my first outing to the psychiatric unit .Was prescribed Haliperidol..Mind blowing stuff :-0 I was a promising athelete but because of my condition and more to the point, off the pills,I could run the legs off Linford Chritie. ;-)The pills turned me into a zombie…I coudn’t get my eyes down from my head at one stage….Just so glad medicine has advanced. My current shrink tells me that he would ‘never’ ‘supply’ ;-/ children with such a drug. Anyway…Going off on one there,just a bit………….

    Last year I got the dreaded ATOS letter,but on the stroke of midnight they cancelled it! The DWP sent me a letter,informing me that I had been put into the WRAG group and would have to attend at least six ‘back to work’ interviews.
    I have managed to go to just one of those and I say that they are a complete and utter total waste of tax-payers hard earned money! Makes me sooo mad that does.
    I asked the interviewer ‘what job does she think I could do part time’ (as she suggested I work on my ‘efforts’ to get into work slowly) I nearly fell on the floor laughing when she suggested ‘dinner lady’ OMG..I had visions of myself running around the field with the year 6′s, forcing them into submission for the ball..This of course being my ‘manic’ day. I reckon the kids would see me as a rather strange OTT character..One of them really. Ok in the world in my head,but not so good in a ‘proffessional sense’ LOLS.
    I did say to the interviwer that this would not be possible,as although I have no crim record,I would have to put down why I have had to refrain from work and that biopolar would not gain me any brownie points with the head. I guess she was just clutching at straws.

    What a bloddy mishmash the whole of the DWP is!Not her fault,just working to put food on her table,but my God,how do they train these workers? They don’t I guess.

    I have my WRAG phone interview next Wednesday,I might just sing all the way through it.

    Strak raving bonkers the hole DWP,ATOS set up.

    Thanks for reading my mad storyxx

  112. You have a ‘real’ disability…and so have so many others. and I’ll tell you this for nothing: many people fear the tests because they have degrees of disability. They may be able to walk 100 yards today but tomorrow they may not be able to get out of bed. You obviously are so absorbed in your own ‘disability’ you have given no thought to other people. What makes you so special? Panic attacks can be just as disabling as being in a wheel chair. Don’t make sweeping statements…do thorough research first. Otherwise you will sound just like one of our Eton (mess) toffee nosed politicians.

Hi there.I agree with you entirley.I stopped some drug dealers lately selling in my estate and passed on a polite warning that if my kids end up junkies then they go in the river tyne with concrete boots on.So now what they do is constantly tell the DLA im not disabled and all kinds off bullshit about me going jogging ha ha i cant walk 10 steps never mind jog.I was left with aquada equina syndrome after a failed surgery on my back and belive me i wouldnt wish this on anyone.I wont go into how the surgery left me incontenent and paralised in my lower left side.And so hear i am preparing myself for another appointment to the DLA within 6 months.Just 6 months ago they sent a doctor to see me to examine me and he went away appologetic and concerned.Now its all happening again but i got nothing to hide so if you are a scammer beware you dont end up crying wolf and really do become disabled.Oh and fuck to all the drug dealers in my area bastards.

  114. I wish they would follow me….then they can see I’m not making my problems up. My examination by an ATOS doctor for DLA was a tissue of lies. Even with the fact that I had a witness! He wrote that I went to the supermarket but didn’t use a trolly…I told him that I shop on line….he also reported that I could climb a full flight of stairs without stopping for a rest….I don’t have a full flight of stairs in my house as it’s split level and I had to stop after three steps. At the tribunal, my witness evidence was ignored…along with all my medical reports from the doctors, pain clinic, enabler and physio…and I was refused any form of DLA mobility. I have learnt my lesson. Next time I will insist that the medical is recorded!

I have challenged the DWP about the ATOS contract I have stated as they are they are the instigators of the contract they are responsible for the actions of ATOS. I have also sent the pamphlet WCA/ AL1C 06/12 to the ASA for scrutinising as its misleading. It clearly states :A fully trained ATOS HCP will carry out you medical assessment All their healthcare professionals have wide medical experience. They also have special training in your type of illness: That is rubbish my assessment was aborted by an ATOS NURSE because she wasn’t trained enough to deal with my complex medical conditions her words not mine, its a joke.

I have worked for 40 years in palliative nursing and never been out if work until 2010 when I fell off a roof and landed on my feet! I am due for a major surgery in February. The DWP know all this, have my surgeons, consultants, docs, physio, hydro and podiatrist report’s which state the obvious..I can’t walk! So sick of filling in 50 page forms and being made to feel I am a liar! How much us this costing to take me to tribunal for my total benefits of £24 a day!! Bloody pathetic! Bring the tribunal on!

  128. I have been reassessed every two years for IB for the past 25 years the usual 22 page work capeability assesment form arrives and takes some 8 hours to fill out with information about my illness.disability then I have to provide medical statements written by my GP/hospital consultant, then if I am called in to see a DWP doctor I have to go to see them to. IB is easy to claim is it? I am only recieving it because your DWp doctors say I should be.
    Disability Living allowence is also not easy to claim 11 tribunals I have been to I have had awards ranging from 1 year before having to reaply to 3 years befoe they decided to give a life award,10 years after my inital first claim there is a file a foot thick on my case history medical notes etc now I suppose they will be telling me it is easy to claim disability benefits to.

    Comment by N. — February 1, 2013 @ 9:19 pm

  129. I have been put on ESA I cannot walk because I have osteoarthritus of the spine, I have no balance and so I fall easily, I have a left side bundle branch block in my heart which leaves me breathless if I do anything such as getting dressed etc. and I have diabetes. My heart is still being diagnosed as there may be more problems I will know after the tests. Why won’t the DWP believe my GP that I need a home visit and cannot go to the ATOS centre for the examination, I have no one to go with and I am terrified I will fall and break something and yet they are still not giving in and sending someone out. When I applied for Disability they said I could not have it because my family did my shopping for me and I did not need anyone to help me in the bungalow. Fair enough, but as they had staff with no appointments they phoned out of the blue and asked if I would mind someone coming in to see me at short notice and I said no not a problem. Now they want another assessment two months on they will not send someone out and I am afraid they will stop my £71. I can hardly live on that the same as everyone in that position. Severn Trent are taking action because I cannot pay my water rates, I have managed so far to pay gas, electric, telephone and tv licence which leaves me £30 a month for food and house keeping. They are expecting me to get a taxi which will cost about £40 both ways for the examination and risk breaking my neck into the bargain have these people no feelings do they think everyone is out to cheat them. I have just lost my partner after 26 years, if I could work I would love to because I would have company again instead of sitting on my own all day with no one to talk to. I can’t type any more because I have arthritus in my hands too and keep dropping things because I do not have the grip in them any more and my fingers are all starting to bend up. What am I supposed to do I am new to benefits and really frightended and lost with it all

  130. Hello Linda.

    The honest answer to your question is YES, these people have no feelings and we have been battling them for four years trying to get the message out to the public on how cruel ATOS and the DWP really are.
    They don’t want to arrange a home visit because it eats into their profits, but what they don’t rush to tell you is that they will pay the taxi there and back.
    They will give in eventually because you have your GPs support, it just depends on how stubborn you are.
    If they see you are willing to have your benefits stopped for non attendance then as I said they will eventually give in and arrange a visit to your home for an assessment on your capability to work.

    There are some people on our sister site who have been in your situation and found a way out http://www.dwpexamination.org

ATOS aborted my assessment NURSE not qualified enough, I rang ATOS on arriving home told them due to their incompetence I would only agree to be assessed at a home visit, recorded, my solicitor present and I want the name of the quack so I can check his suitability, This was all agreed to but I have heard nothing since 1/10/12

  132. Hello k davies.

    Are you still in receipt of benefits ? well if so then no news is good news.
    A word of caution though, they agreed to what ? and was it agreed on the phone ? anything agreed on the phone is not worth the paper it wasn’t written on, at least as far as ATOS and the DWP are concerned.
    More likely you’ve frightened them off with your no nonsense attitude.

    In the future get anything these monsters say in writing, and even then get someone to check it just in case you’ve read it wrong.

    Comment by dwpexamination — February 20, 2013 @ 4:10 pm

  135. I forgot to mention as well as not sending in someone to see me from ATOS because I can’t walk and loose my balance if I have no one to hold on too which means I would probably not make it there before I fell and broke a bone. Also I could not breath with my heart problems just walking from a taxi even if I could afford one which I obviously cann’t. The DWP have now stopped me £15 for two payments to repay my loan. I called them and said I have not had a loan. After being passed from pillar to post they admitted they were sorry it was a mistake and I had not had a loan. They are still taking my money from me and have said it will take at least a month to sort out and return my money even though it is their mistake. That £15 was my food money for the week. Even though it is their mistake they have carried on and took another £15. I have told them I cannot afford any food and that affects people with diabetes if they do not eat but they do not seem to care. This one will probably not amaze anyone but I was led to believe when I first went on benefits in November that they let you know when your note was due. My note was late so I did not get any money, after much discussion with many departments and explaining I would not be able to pay my gas and electric and I had no money for food they said there is nothing we can do you should work out when your note is due yourself. Our system cannot be trusted to let you know in time. I said is it o.k. if I die without a note and the girl on the other end actually paused and thought about it and said she did’nt know, does that not say it all!!!

    Comment by Linda — February 20, 2013 @ 5:28 pm

  136. Hi Linda.

    The DWP usually send a reminder with a free envelope, but sometimes they deliberately don’t send one to keep you on your toes, this is obviously because they hope that you will not know what date the sickline runs out exactly, and with a bit of luck the GP supplies you one a day or two out, and they can screw you for a day or twos money.

  137. i wonder how i might have been seen as someone who is trying to pull the wool over their eyes, grade 3 breast cancer, 12 operations under general over the last five years, one minor stroke after one of those operations, five years worth of steroid based anti cancer tablets, plus the other 19 prescribed tablets a day, and now, a prolapsed lumber, a fracture of the lumber, degenerative disease of the lower and upper spine, and arthritis to the rest of the spine, been out of the house in the last four months only to attend for hospital appointments, can no longer drive as can no longer get into our car, and i can’t look over my right shoulder, oh if only life was so simple, if i was fine, well, i would be working, just like i did until i was diagnosed, i have a lot more problems besides these above, but the bastards took my incapacity off me, they really are so wrong in this country

  138. I have said before if you have health or disabilities and are found fit to work by ATOS the HCP should advise the DWP exactly what work they consider you fit for, If the DWP cannot with support find you that job then you should be reinstated to benefit and ATOS and the DWP should be punished in some way.

  139. The DWP with all their massive resources and support can’t even find an able bodied person a job..!!

  140. You really are a bit of a dick arnt you. You think all the sick are in it for beer money, its people like you who fan the flames so to speak. Obvously you don’t know the true scale of what the torys are doing to the sick, ill, disabled, and dying otherwise you wouldn’t come out with utter guff like that. I hope when you get to your tribunal, that you get fucked over like most others have. That’s the countrys problem, and how the torys get away with this with people like you who, as long as your ok and receiving YOUR money then its fuck everybody else coz your ok. Well don’t expect any sympathy at your tribunal coz u won’t get it. Why not get your head out of your arse, and see the bigger picture you jumped up selfish bastard. I only came across ur forum by accident, and to be honest I coudnt care less that ul be back writing more. By coming out with crap like that ur showing that there policies of divide the sick, ill and disabled so they blame each other are working, u complete selfish jumped up little faggot. Like I said I hope u get done over properly by those atos shitheads and the torys and then you might realise what’s actually going on you utter utter self centred pillock. I really wouldnt bother leaving a reply to this on your poxy forum because I won’t be here to read it. Ever!

  142. Hello Mick.

    This is Joe, I’m the only one left on this Blog, the man who wrote the introduction to this page (Michael) around four years ago passed away a month ago, I attended his funeral in Sunderland and it was a very sad day, he didn’t deserve that rant Mick, he was denied his DLA and he was also denied his ESA and on top of his other problems the stress of losing his DLA appeal as well as his ESA damaged his heart and induced his early death, he deserved his right to DLA/ESA and while he watched beer swilling chavs just up his street getting everything handed to them on a plate it made him angry, that was all he was saying.

    So then Mick, it’s easy to slag people of on forums and Blogs, I could do it too, believe me I’m more than capable, but do you know what Mick ? I’m not going to bother because I’ve got a life to lead, I’ve got genuine people to help on here every day and I’ve got my hobbies and other interests as well.

    So then Mick, what have you done to help unfortunate people lately ? nothing probably, never been on an anti-cuts demonstration, never gave anyone help on a forum or Blog, never signed a petition either I’m willing to bet, an information soocker who has just appeared on this Blog out of nowhere looking to sook as much information as they can (And give nothing back) to get their right to benefits even though it’s been going for four years, which means you were doing nothing ( Because I’ve never heard of you) but collecting your benefits and sat and watched with the attitude of ”WELL IT’S NOT HAPPENING TO ME YET’ I’M ALL RIGHT JACK” and now that ATOS are coming for you as we have warned everyone for the last four years you get angry and upset with everyone else.

    Well I’m sorry you have mental health problems Mick, if you need help with that then you will have to book into a good psychiatrist and get that help you so obviously need, I can only help with general appeals and how to handle ATOS and the DWP to your best advantage, so I will bid you farewell and good luck..!!

    Joe…The management.

  143. Don’t we all end up with mental health problems? oh to have a year where i could feel confident that i had some money coming in, but alas, i do not think that is ever going to happen again. Mick, we are all having a bit of a time here, we are not calling people, we are calling the system that is letting people like us down so very badly, what you said Mick was totally out of place, you obviously didn’t read the post as it was meant to be, i came here, as i have had the worst time of my life lately due to cancer and the fact that even though i can hardly walk, well the ESA has been taken off me, i couldn’t even get DLA, what more could i have said, surely cancer is not so little thought about? but i was made to feel like a fraud. i just found out i had a fracture in my spine, thats after two nuclear bone scans and numerous xray and mri scans over the last four years, i only found out about this after an xray last week, what i fail to understand is, they are saying that i have a pars defect, that happened when i was a teenager or pre-birth, so my question is going to be when i go for my next appointment is how this has not shown up on all the other tests i have had. life really is shit at the moment, money is tighter than its ever been, but how do i get a job?, if i am honest on the application form about cancer and a minor stroke, and being on 75mg morphine patches with orramorphe 30 mills every four hours for the break through pain, i can’t drive, i can’t retain information, my memory is shit, who is going to employ me? 50 and fuckin worthless eh!!! so Mick, just chill and read the forum properly mate, cos life is far to short for your sort of shit xxx

  145. and i have to say, i for one will be happy to see families getting their benefits capped at £27k a year, what on earth has happened in this country to enable people to get so much tax payers money, and we have tax payers struggling to live! this is more than most normal working families earn a work, its not fair unless there is a very good reason to be on that amount of benefit in the first place, but round where i live, well, the young girls all have about 5-6 kids, they don’t ever get the fathers involved, but what would be the point, half of them don’t work anyway, its a bit of a joke this country, work all your life, get a tiny amount of benefits then thrown off them!!!! i now know i should have taken that cane making class years ago, cos the amount of folks using sticks to get around on seems to have increased by quite a lot, especially outside the post office and the job centre!!!!!

    Comment by alicamera — April 1, 2013 @ 9:58 pm

  146. Well Alison…Maybe you should read this article (See link below) and absorb what it says, times have changed in the last few years, under no circumstances am I going to do the Tories divide and rule (Striver/shirker) dirty work for them, they’re doing a fine job on their own without us helping them by cursing our own working class brothers and sisters.


    And as for sticking someone in to the DWP ? why I wouldn’t do that to a yellow dog (Paraphrasing Al Capone).

    So my message to you and anyone else who reads this post is this, the British Government or the DWP or ATOS will get no help from me, I would rather we had a nuclear war and turned the whole Country in to a pile of stinking rubble where we reverted back to the real law of the jungle, and I can assure you of one thing, I would be Iain Duncan Smiths master beating him every day with a fucken bamboo cane and ordering him to carry out my every wish.

    I hope I’ve made myself crystal sparkling fucken clear…..

    Comment by jeffrey davies (@jeffrey33333) — April 23, 2013 @ 9:34 pm

  149. Hi Jeffrey, i actually know people in my area who are getting that much, mostly single mums, my daughter in laws sister is one of them, she gets her rent paid, her council tax paid, she gets £340 to keep herself and her son a week, she also got £1000 last year to do her 3 bedroomed council house redecorated, she spent that money on a two week holiday to Greece, her council house stood empty for two years, but now she has a boyfriend, so she has moved back into it, she was living with her mother who is also on benefits, and absolutely coining it in, my daughter in law who works long hours for the pittance she gets, hates her sister and is disgusted that she will not get a job, cos she can not get a job that pays what she gets on benefits. and if you need proof about the cap put on people so they cannot get over £27.000 a year, i suggest you google it and any decent news website or the times or guardian will bring it up. I have had cancer, i am nearly crippled due to the very bad side effects of the drugs i have had and still have, i even have a fracture in my spine, i am 50 years old, i had to stop work when i was 44 years old due to the cancer, now i can hardly walk, yet they took my incapacity off me, i too have paid full stamp, yet who is the fucking mug?

    Better still help people in need instead of whining your incapacity benefit was taken from you, as if you were the only one it’s happened too, where were you four years ago when all this took off ? probably walking around telling folk YOUR ALL RIGHT JACK.

    Now go and get angry somewhere else, because I just can’t be bothered listening to folk like you, I mean it scram, don’t come back, no vacancies, beware of the dog…got it ?.

  161. Hi I held out with ATOS but despite my GP’s letter they have gone on for weeks passing it from one department to another and then denying it is anything to do with that particular department. I have finally given in and I have to attend ATOS on the 15th May. I have got my taxi paid for me from my to ATOS and back I do not have to claim the money back as I told them I did not have it to spend in the first place. Secondly I told them if there were any steps then it would be impossible for me to get into the building they have told me I can bring help and use the wheelchair ramp and the assessment will be held on the ground floor. I guess that is the best offer I am going to get I have fought hard and long for that.

  162. ”I guess that is the best offer I am going to get I have fought hard and long for that”.

    You fought long and hard for your rights, and other people are fighting long and hard for their rights, not fighting long and hard for your rights is not an option, ATOS don’t want you to fight long and hard for your rights because if everyone fights long and hard for their rights it will WEAR ATOS out, so keep fighting long and hard for your rights and don’t give up, sooner or later ATOS will give up and just grant you your rights without you and others having to fight long and hard for them.

    Comment by dwpexamination — April 29, 2013 @ 7:56 am

  163. Because I am new to all this is it just me or do you find when you call the DWP some of the people although most times they cannot help you because of all their rules and regulations they are very nice and treat you with respect and I hesitate to say I have actually had compassion but there are others who seem to really enjoy their work being as abrupt without quite being rude just borderline they seem to really enjoy your suffering and get great pleasure in letting you know they are about to make your life more miserable and unbearable than it already is. I have to say these people do not realise how lucky they are, they have their health, a job, and I daresay in most cases Partners or Husbands and Wives. I lost all three I fell ill, can’t work and lost my Partner of 26 years last October. I would give anything to be able to walk and try to find a little job even part time just for company I hate being on my own. Unfortunately this is not going to happen companys won’t send you a paid taxi and help you round the room everytime you want to move so you don’t fall flat on you face. I feel like all of you miserable, cheated and then insulted to boot. O.K. i’m sorry just having a little moan but like I say I don’t have anyone to talk to so don’t be too hard on me if I have said the wrong thing.

    Stop curtain twitching, stop worrying about what the next door neighbor is doing in there, and stop worrying about what other people have got, get a life will you ?.

I am going to wait for my recorded home visit and take them to the wire.

This government doesn’t want the genuine disabled to have any life and that includes excercise referral to keep their joints supple to help with mobility. Otherwise you are a sponger. It’s a pity the DWP don’t put the same resources in to catching the tax evader’s and the immigrant’s that undertake mass DWP fraud.

  171. Hahahahaha – you people really are a bunch of easily led fuckwits aren’t you? Tell you what, how about this…… I will physically pay every bill you will ever have if you can refute, by law, these facts.
    The link here shows the DWP backdating a contract 17 years, this values the contract at around £60,000. This is what I credited THEM with and this is my credit! This was because I had to go on benefits due to illness! On the site you will also see how they tried to chase the debts, even though I credited them with above! That is because you are always the creditor when it comes to benefits and anything else is actually Fraud (2006 Act under statute!). So when you talk about “benefit scroungers” why don;t you get your fucking facts straight! You fucking idiots allow this kind of shit with your uneducated deductive reasoning…. prove me wrong, I dare you! p.s. I have also sent this to the SFO to teach them how you lot are easily led and are actually aiding and abetting fraud with your thinking! For anyone not a moron….

  173. P.S. This is not personal (to anyone but those aiding and abetting this knowingly), I have just found it is a good way to rile people and educate them by making them look into things more. I can;t stand people thinking that these people are scroungers, they actually credit this economy massively. Here’s something else to think about, correct me if I am wrong here;
    I believe that whatever health care people need, they should have! I think in this day and age in this country that should be a given, regardless of who you are.
    Therefore, how does a Government that willingly oversees just £481 per person in money +/- 25% (Currency Act 1985, Coinage Act 1971, Statutory Instrument No: 3228 “Bank of England Limit on Fiduciary Note Issuance” Order 1999 and the Census data 2011), then state “WEHAVE TO MAKE CUTS” in the NHS? In all honesty, as there evidently is no money, then why doesn’t Government just say “we’re going to create the credit we haven’t got to pay all NHS wages and make sure all hospitals stay open and they have all the equipement they need!”. Would anyone in this country really have a problem with that?
    Again, sorry for the rant but get all your facts of law straight first!

    Comment by Rick Boyd — January 7, 2014 @ 9:56 pm

  174. Serious Fraud Office – Shown on my photobucket is valuable consideration assigned in contract to the DWP. I basically couldn’t walk with Fibromyalgia so had to get benefits some years ago. Gave them all the facts of law under full disclosure (like here) and just like banks, the banking department acts on bills of exchange and the Consumer Credit Act whereby there are always two persons – actually a person as creditor and individual as debtor if you read it. But due to the fact there is no money and you are the creditor on a contract (read Sec 20 Bills of Exchange Act 1882), then you are always creditor to banks and banking companies/departments, it’s actually an unlawful act to take anyone to court over a debt (4th Protocol) provided you have been doing everything openly and under full disclosure (Sec 3 Fraud Act 2006). The fraud the DWP did was the mysterious post code missing from the postal notes (postal delivery rule) and they were trying to basically get property to make a commercial gain. You’ll here some weird shit from religious fundamentalists along the same lines (Strawman for example) but I prefer to use facts of law and when I serve evidence to a court of law they don;t know what to do as it used to be all hear say evidence and in the realm of the oppressed and fundamentalists. Yep, it’s just proof that Banks and Government use you as a creditor and provide you with little whilst defrauding you. I have filed this to court but no-one seems to do anything about it! I also know a hell of a lot more than this but it just annoys me that people still don;t understand the Government want to make as much money off you and you are the creditor if you put pen to paper…. anything else is just bloody fraud!

    Comment by Rick Boyd — January 7, 2014 @ 10:04 pm

  175. do you not realise that this site gives out the most useless information to people Rick? if you are truly unable to work due to illness, then your gp, specialist, surgeon, palliative care worker, well, they are the people who need to help you fill these forms out, and they will do as long as you really are not able to work. Also, if you are truly struggling there is always CAB and other benefits advisors who work for cancer services and other chronic illnesses. This blog seems to be run by people who have a vendetta about benefits, ok, they do get it wrong, but no one at job centre plus is going to ignore a patients specialist.

    Comment by Anonymous — January 7, 2014 @ 10:09 pm

  176. P.P.S For anyone wanting to protect themselves from this Government fraud – The Judiciary will state that people are transferred to the surety (when your name changes from JOHN SMITH to John Smith on a court form for example), yes, even the Judiciary will aid and abet these people! You’re not the surety to banks or banking departments, you are the creditor! Also, you may want to read sections 14 and 39 of the Banking Act 2009 to protect yourselves better when it comes to debts to understand what goes on.

    You’ll also pay a barrister about £600 an hour for this by the way, I talk to them and they don’t know these facts of law though…. strange how that works really!

  177. Thanks for the advice anonymous, I can open the most valuable bank accounts and have 3 registered businesses plus my banking body corporate, plus, if you look through my evidence I can also be legally dead as and when I want, such is Government. The reason I can do this is again full disclosure, my signature is extremely valuable, besides, where is the logic in going back to an entity which has wilfully defrauded me? That would be illogical!

  180. Anonymous….what in the hell are you on about, your inane comments don’t make any kind of sense.

  181. Creyke Close Cottingham HU16 4DH has the highest concentration of dwp workers living in or using
    the flats for spy activities. eg 34, 26, 9, 19, some are retired spy’s. eg Maureen at 34 presently in Australia
    with her girlfriend at Tax payers expense! they have a history of spying and lying on people at Total
    Fitness Willerby.

  185. Easy answer – don’t lie and they won’t spy. Claim what you are entitled to or get a job…

  186. Look out for cars and vans with poppies on the front, missing wheel trims, fags in gob or sun glasses and high vis vests, roof bars, roof racks or boxes, many social housing places are used by the dwp cu.ts they are fairly likely to have these vehicles outside.,while over the fence or face to face they will tell you they are disable, unemployed or they work for council. They are lying spying bastards and they hate cameras and the internet. Many have moved house because they shit themselves when exposed. At night they get really sophisticated by pulling out a headlight or rear light including brake lights, they are more like to lie than tell the truth, they get paid fairly low basics so they rely on bonus money, there’s a group connected with a Human Rights charity that has enormous amounts of personal stuff on the dwp staff, including national insurance data and registered keeper details of vehicles..great stuff I say, let have a goo back with front line staff, far more effective that tribunals and all that bull shit, white vans in all sizes, hire vans, and most delivery firms run dwp spy vans eg City, Royal Mail, parcel force, also taxi firms have deals with dwp for serveilance work and they ferry the spies around from location to location, Leeds has dwp working in the market..most of the workers houses have verticle blinds paid for by the taxpayer, most fiddle their expenses, mileage, subsistence etc. they cost millions but Cameron has thrown billions at the dwp but they are not getting the results he wanted,Expose the bastards…

  187. Hi Malcolm.

    Very interesting.

    There’s a group connected with a Human Rights charity that has enormous amounts of personal stuff on the dwp staff, including national insurance data and registered keeper details of vehicles.

    Is there a link to this group ?, looks like it could be worth looking at.
