  1. Appeals can take a few months to be heard at Tribunal. However if you can hang on and attend tribunal it helps to show that you consider the medical assessment to have been unfair. Try to take a Welfare Rights Advisor from an Unemployed Workers Centre with you to the tribunal - get in touch with one as soon as possible and don't wait for the tribunal hearing date as they will want to read your documents thoroughly beforehand so they can represent you thoroughly. Good luck with it. By the way - there's an online petition to Sack Atos at http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/sack-atos

  3.

  5. Hi Martin, Is there a way that members should get approval of any links prior to posting e.g. via an Admin? Is this link vetting just a normal process which happens to every post? I don't mind the vetting at all, but am concerned as I don't want to be breaking any rules. Regards, John
  6. Hi everyone on ESA/IB/DLA There is an Independent Review of the WCA going on from 28/07/10 to 10/09/10 and (here I overcome my cynicism briefly)...we might be in with a chance of changing the system for the better. The Secretary of State for Work and Pensions has asked Professor Malcolm Harrington to undertake an independent review of the Work Capability Assessment (WCA) and make recommendations on the future development and efficacy of the WCA. Individuals and organisations are invited to send evidence and to participate in recommending how changes may be made for the improve
  7. Here's a letter I have written to David Cameron today and posted to him at The House of Commons, London SW1A 0AA and to his constituency office at 10 Bridge St, Whitney, Oxon, OX28 1HY Dear Mr Cameron, The tone of your government, of vilifying the vulnerable in society, particularly the sick, disabled and unemployed is horrifying and disgusting, especially when we are all portrayed as "scroungers". In a vile outburst on 18th June, the epithet of "workshy" was applied by Chris Grayling (Con, Epsom & Ewell) to all 2.5 million sick ESA claimants. I find that remark, reported in the Dail

(not got my memory stick with me or i'd post the link) Anyone not yet signed the Sack Atos Healthcare petition, it's at: http:Sack Atos Healthcare Immediately Petition
  9. Agreed. If my ESA is stopped I will almost certainly complain to GMC
  10. Yessssss - absolutely, PriorityOne I hope to post a thread in the near future quoting some data to illustrate our points. I remember 3 in particular because they are so shocking: 1. The £1.5 Trillion of GDP our country has annaully - enough to pay for everything; 2. The £120 Billion every year spent on the EU, which gives nothing back and imposes it's looney laws on the UK; 3. The 70% of sick benefit ESA claims which are denied the proper benefit sue to lies and cheating by Atos Healthcare / Origin. I say sack them now : Sack Atos Healthcare Immediately Petition Take
  11. Yeah - that would be about right Conniff As the TV program asked "Who's cheating who?" http://www.google.com/url?sa=X&q=http://youtube.com/watch?v%3Dyop7L95NyIU&ct=ga&cad=:s7:f1:v0:i1:lt:e1:p1:t1275343973:&cd=zV9_ozc0JPk&usg=AFQjCNGFizn1QlJbNzETllp9eR0t2G8DwA BTW, if you've not signed the petition yet, please feel free to do do: Sack Atos Healthcare Immediately Petition Best Regards, John
