On the 11th Hour, 11th Day, 11th Month the First World War Ended "Armistice Day" In Flanders Fields Poem In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place: and in the sky The larks still bravely singing fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead: short days ago, We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved: and now we lie In Flanders fields! Take up our quarrel with the foe To you, from failing hands, we throw The Torch: be yours to hold it high If ye break faith with us who die, We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. Composed by Lt Col John McCrae at the battlefront on 3 May 1915 During the Second Battle of Ypres, Belgium

As per usual, nothing new to report regarding the incompetent DWP. However, after scoring the standard 0 points on my assessment from IB to ESA, I have been one of the many thousands who have appealed. The start of Aug I received my tribunal date, however the evening prior to the tribunal I was rang by a person calling herself 'the tribunal' asking if I could change my time from PM to AM, I told her this wouldn't be acceptable and the original time would stand. Then on the day of the tribunal some 5 hours prior to it, a female rang, again calling herself 'the tribunal' to inform me that the panel felt they didn't have enough evidence in which to make an informed decision, so they were adjourning it and I would receive a letter requesting me to allow them to contact my Dr in order to obtain this information. Sure enough the very next morning, I received said letter, mighty quick work from the post office! Now I have 14 days in which to respond, but I doubt they are expecting the kind of response they're going to be getting! I have already lodged a formal complaint against the court and the tribunals service for their utter incompetence and failure to request this evidence in the 7 months I have been waiting for the tribunal, I am also loathed to give them any further evidence as it is crystal clear that they have deliberately and knowingly adjourned the tribunal with the clear intent to push numbers from one list to another. We all know that it's just a game to them, but I am spitting feathers and fully intend to make this process as painful and costly to them as I am able. This next week I am going to do as much research as I can into whether their actions are legal, as it smacks of contempt to me, I am also going to be writing up a bill of costs for them and send it to the DWP, not that I am expecting them to acknowledge it or agree, but it will make me feel better.
I apologise if this is posted in the wrong forum. Further to my last posts I have now had my Capital One debt referred to CapQuest. There was a standing order set up for Capital One for the sum of £1 pound as instructed this is still in place. I have had no telephone conversations with CapQuest, not that they have not stopped trying. I recieved a letter from them this morning stating that Capital One are happy to accept a reduced amount of £1088.41 to be paid in full or over a 3 month period. I am still in no position to pay this amount of and cannot see this changing in the near future. But my belly is full and my bills are all paid so happy days, well not so happy but life goes on as they say
