… is this bastard government taking so much bloody money from the most needy in society.
I read the posts on here and it seems that all of us, even those of us who are fortunate enough not to be scraping by on the breadline, are desperately worried about the cuts to PIP, ESA, Council tax benefit, tax credits, the list goes on and on. Even those people who really shouldn’t worry because their care needs are so clear they of course will qualify are terrified of the process. And people like me who understand the benefits system and think they’ll be OK, I’m scared stiff too.
And then you see the picture of that arsehole Osborne parking in a disabled bay. The lazy scumbag!
I’m so happy for those people who’ve managed to fight their way through the minefield of the benefits system and get ESA support group status, and/or PIP at the enhanced rate for daily living and mobility. I wish it would happen that way for us all. And for those of you who’ve found the Capita and Atos staff to be good human beings who’ve made the assessments less daunting, let’s celebrate the fact that it is possible. And of course I wish the fiery furnaces of hell to those jobsworth gits who fail to treat us with the respect we deserve in the process of these assessments
I’m so sorry for those of you who’ve have to get reconsiderations and appeals against the shitty decisions made by the DWP staff.
And I so wish it were different. On a day when the budget is announced, the losers once again are those most in need, whilst the fat bastard bankers stash their loot away in shady corners where the taxman/woman can’t reach it.
It wouldn’t be so bad if only it were simple to navigate our way around all the various systems, from benefits and tax credits to social services, via council tax discounts and benefits, through the NHS with the difficulties of the CCGs (and let’s not forget the postcode lotteries of who gets funding for what) and prescription charges.
How on earth are people supposed to keep track of all these systems. Oh of course, we’re not are we!!
