How I wish I could afford a gun. I just put my information, minus my DLA award into the turn2 us benefits calculator. If my PIP application is unsuccessful I will lose my Council Tax rebate, my ESA and my heating payment. All told I will lose £7450 a year. All so that smarmy faced ars**ole Osborne can give Tory voters in the 40% tax bracket an extra £100 a year for their votes. They will have us wearing something sewn on to our clothing next to single us out by sight. The knock on effect of the new PIP restrictions hasn’t been widely reported and so probably the vast majority of people are unaware. Osborne isn’t one of them.
