Warm Home Discount – DWP being Conservative with Truth


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Well  folks they done it again…… For many years I have been entitled to the Warm Home Discount to help those on struggling to cover utility costs to the value of £140 off the Electric bills. Many Suppliers have different criteria with Pensioners  coming first as rule of thumb.

So this year I dutifully filled in my application to be told all of a sudden I wasn’t entitled when I had checked that I was. I challenged this with the supplier only to be told that it was because I was on Contributory ESA  you have to be on Income Related to qualify and that the DWP had told the supplier to the contrary.

Now I knew I got CB ESA plus a IR top up should have made me eligible. so I call DWP as suggested by supplier for letter of proof, that I was indeed eligible and posted it off to my supplier on arrival.  Lo and Behold  today I received my supplier letter stating that indeed I was entitled to it and my account will be credited in February.

How many more have the DWP denied is the point because not everyone knows which type ESA they get. So folks don’t give up challenge it !

 

Living In a Society Where No-One is Immune From Conscious Cruelty- Urgent Appeal for Help


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Do you ever wonder what you would do if you found yourself in dire straits, facing eviction and debts coming out your ears with the DWP breathing down your neck and the kids needs are being a casualty of something you cant control as a parent?

Well I personally have been there and thankfully my friends pulled me through some of the toughest times, and without that support I would have gone to the wall and I cant thank them enough for what they did for me, and on occasion still do! Which is why I am finding myself today trying to help another disabled person who is so distressed that their world is falling apart, and unable to function properly due to their disabilities ,whose family is falling apart and whose kids are finding out what Tory Austerity means in the real world. For me this isn’t about charity its about helping others survive, an act of humanity if you like.

This is personal as I know this family well and are good souls and has been a longtime individual fighting austerity and getting the truth out to wider public who now faces the stark possibility of losing everything they have,while trying to sustain self employment who has seen a decline in income. and struggling with mental health &  complex disabilities. I am not about to stand idly by and watch this family go under while others close their eyes and thank god its not them.

Anyone of us could be in their position, we are all a pay packet away from poverty and to make things worse social services are waiting to pounce ,rather than help a situation with this family and seriously people need to wake up to the abhorrent attacks affecting so many in society. While the rest of society vilify or display hostility to anyone that needs state support because they have some idea that this only happens to others, that in their minds are undeserving  because they work hard and resent paying taxes justifies their disdain to the working class poor.  Soon the so called Middle England ‘Jams’ will from July find out that their tax credits and sanctions ,housing benefit top ups due to low wages and other cuts are heading right to their privileged letterboxes to bite them on the arse! This is not something we should be proud of , in fact every man, woman and child should be filled with horror at the way so many are being penalized for being born in the wrong class, who get blamed by the have’s for being lazy and feckless when the reality is it is those at the top who keep them that way. Disabled people have been affected 9 times worse than any other group in society.

Going back the family I’m trying to help,  please I know lots of you struggling but if you can, donate  via this paypal link https://www.paypal.me/welfareweekly?locale.x=en_GB&fbclid=IwAR2-bPLzGXkQ4GnIofEJfjvSUSh3-tTJPPVWNIfN4zRmXuSdFpOv_QK7uIM

 

So I beg you to help your fellow citizens and check they are really Ok, because out of pride many will say they are fine,while going back to a cold empty home with no food in the cupboard and sinking into despair. It most certainly could be YOU!

No More Deaths From Benefit Cuts!

 

 

 

EXCLUSIVE: DWP Have A New Universal Credit Mythbuster – Only It Isn’t Laughable If You Are Claiming !


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have to say when I saw this I spat my coffee all over the place, I laughed so hard at these delusional fools who believe their own version of bullshit,while MP surgeries are full and food banks are overflowing unable to meet demand. Charities & MP’s alike are screaming for this carbuncle policy to be lanced once and for all, yet they continue to roll it out regardless and their next victims of managed migration will be the most vulnerable groups in society. after Numerous debates on this policy, it has caused untold distress to many claimants , leaving them penniless  and struggling to survive on food bank rations over Christmas and made many peoples health and well-being  worse than before on Legacy Benefits. Story after story is told regularly in MP surgeries , in Parliament and the media yet rather than admit this policy is causing harm and distress and pausing it to fix it,  the governments position is to deny all knowledge and promote it as ‘getting more people into work’ and its ‘working well’ rhetoric.

Recently when one Danielle Rowley MP for Midlothian  had the audacity of requesting call centre scripts in a FOI which was denied, but Tory Work and Pensions Secretary Amber Rudd’s department have failed to provide details of what it called “supportive lines” while claiming “there are no scripts”.  Anyone who claims Universal Credit and many MP’s know fine well this is a blatant obstruction of democracy and transparency by a government who repeat the same lines week in and week out from the scripts they have memorised verbatim. Catch them out with a question they don’t expect and they get all flustered and go into free fall, hopelessly looking for someone to rescue them as they don’t know what to say. well it will be interesting to see what they make of this scripted little gem provides makes the headlines so share this blog on whatever platforms you use.

Enjoy
