Spelling it out in the only way possible it seems the many have not grasped the nettle that the Welfare State is on end of life care.

Many of my followers and fellow campaigners have been screaming into a echo chamber for the last decade as people went about their busy lives the best they can. Disabled people in particular have been aware more than most, to the agenda of successive governments since 1982 pushing the neoliberal policies that was about to launch a deadly attack on the most precious thing that made our country great after WW2.

The socialist values united a country that saw war and destruction every where they looked, we were skint , but the country got behind Nye Bevan plans to transform Britain into a major powerhouse on a world stage. it gave the many free healthcare and a financial safety net should they be found unemployed or poor or sick. As a country we prospered from building social housing so families had a place to call their own , rather than room shares etc which were breeding grounds for disease with decent sanitation etc  lots of things that used to kill  could now be tackled including the huge gaps of inequality which lead to all this in first place. Don’t think for one minute we did not have a welfare state prior to this from the various stages of the Victorian era we did, but even that was minimal and only for the deserving poor and protectionism so the elite wouldn’t catch something deadly like TB, Smallpox,  Polio,Rickets.

For decades many working class families benefited hugely from this amazing project described as the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ envied around the world.

Step forward a few decades to Thatcher and her free market agenda and ‘no such thing as society’ -‘Individualism’ agenda and that’s where the rot started. The Tories have always hated the poor and seen them as feckless,  lazy good for nothings living off their backs, when the truth is the have exploited our hard Labour for centuries. The rich have always exploited the working class poor, we have filled their pockets from day one only now they fill the private sector mouths with gold to keep them silent.

Now we have Psychological Tyranny inflicted by a Government who sole aim is to remove the Welfare State from everyone who needs it, and a media that pushes the Government Propaganda Machine to convince the working class to hate each other or blame other sections of society so they don’t have to take any personal responsibility for their policies or actions.

They should all be in prison for Crimes against Humanity starting with Mansell Aylward & Gordon Waddell, Lord Freud,Iain Duncan Smith,Frank Field and the many capitalist profiteers  like ATOS,Unum Insurance,Capita,Maximus,G4S who know fine well that the state is killing people and who fail to act to prevent it from happening yet are happy to take contracts funded by blood money.

Social Prescribing  in the NHS is a part of NHS 10 yr Plan. How will it affect you?

Well here is a video and documents to explain what it is  but one thing it is leading to is Privatization on  ‘speed ‘ as the Government  implement  STP and ICS throughout NHS  and a reworking of the GP Contract. will it affect us all of course it will under this regime who are flogging the crown Jewels of to leave us with an Americanized welfare system of two tier. The insurance lobbies are waiting patiently to make a killing while many wont be able to access quality health care as under the NHS that was created as part of the Welfare State delivered to us by Nye Bevin.

 

My Interview with Dr Gill:

22/2/19

I asked Dr Gill How he thought the relationship between patient and claimant could be damaged with the new GP Contract which every GP will have to sign up to in May 2019.

I also asked him about social prescribing and its potential impact on patients who need state support and claim Social Security.

 

“He described to me that Patients are already coming to surgery with anxiety and depression or ill health due to hostile environment that austerity is creating, and the system is making people ill, or in a lot of cases more ill than they were.  Making it unlikely they will be able to manage their conditions in same way they currently do.

He stated that perverse financial incentives for ‘sociopathic ‘ assessors are leading to really bad outcomes for claimants and  pressures upon the public purse, as well as increased workload on GP’s whose patients need help with appeals etc. This contract will effectively making GP’s Gatekeepers which is not what they chose to be when studying medicine to become a GP.

He said the Government is driving a wedge between the patient and their GP and pitting them against each other,  and that will most likely mean the good GP’s will leave while those without no consciousness will reap the rewards offered by the Government and DWP .

Social Prescribing, is blaming the patient for their situation and the whole treatment process of being denied to the proper care that the patient needs. I asked him about the potential that with ‘patient coaches’ (aka work coaches) who have too much power could lead to those who most need support and are extremely vulnerable ,are likely to  disengage with their GP and fall through the cracks and could ultimately end in their demise which he agreed with my assumption. He stated that Patients/Claimants and GP’s are victims of a government who doesn’t care.

This is the tip of the iceberg of how it could impact on claimants needing further medical evidence support, getting a Fit Note if they are off work through ill health to claim state support, which under Universal Credit they would need to do so repeatedly.

The breakdown of trust between claimants and GP or other NHS staff has the potential to cause a rise in further deaths which have happened already under its predecessor ESA. That’s without the 120,000 who died due to poor care in NHS, etc as diseases previously eradicated are now making a comeback due to austerity measures and abject poverty.

This is Government Quackery on the cheap by unqualified people, dismissing medical opinion of professionals while eroding our NHS services and underfunding essential services that patients need and a NHS they can trust and flogging it to their mates. It beggars belief that the public would allow this to continue or collude with the government by being taken in about better services and cutting waste of NHS resources, when they have slashed NHS budgets for decades along with New Labour who are not blameless in this re PFI acceleration under Blair.

Your NHS is on life support, welcome to the American style  health care system you allowed to happen, hope you got deep wallets or insurance which is the real end game , if not  you will be one of those unfortunate that will meet a early end of life because you happen to be poor and can’t afford Insurance.

Well folks you have all heard Amber Rudd talk about Specialist Employment Support for those who need it and are furthest away from the Labour Market. Well bless my soul here are more documents to read at your leisure because if you go on Universal Credit you need to read all these .

 

The support comes from a new £40 million fund and is expected to benefit 10,000 people.

The Intensive Personalised Employment Support programme will provide highly personalised packages of employment support for people who are at least a year away from moving into work.

People will get coaching to help build their independence, confidence and motivation, as well as work experience to help boost their career prospects.

Secretary of State for Work and Pensions Amber Rudd said:

Everyone, no matter what their background is, should have the opportunity to thrive in the workplace, and having the right support in place for disabled people is one of my greatest priorities.

To truly help people transform their lives, there can be no one-size-fits-all approach.

That’s why this new programme is designed to offer people, who may think they will never move into work, tailored support to help them overcome any personal barriers they may have in the first instance, and then to focus on boosting their skills.

There are also huge economic benefits to improving disability employment rates. More than half of disabled people are in work, but in order to realise the full potential of disabled people in Britain we want to go further and see one million more disabled people in work by 2027.

People on the scheme will get a dedicated key worker who will work with them to overcome complex barriers which may be preventing them from entering work, ensuring they have a personal support network in place.

The voluntary scheme will be rolled out across England and Wales in 2019, and applicants will receive support for up to 21 months, including 6 months of in-work support for those who get a job.

Neil Heslop, Chief Executive of Leonard Cheshire, said:

Many disabled people with complex needs face significant barriers in accessing the workplace. It’s crucial that specialised employment support is available and the government responds to the challenges people often encounter.

A more tailored approach can help reach those who are not currently receiving any employment support or skills development. The experiences of disabled people must be central for this support to meaningfully build confidence in an ongoing way, reflecting their individual circumstances and aspirations.

The Intensive Personalised Employment Support programme will support people living with a disability who are unlikely to move into work within the next year or longer and may need additional support.

In this blog we will look at Provider Guidance for the Health & Work Programme. This information is for you to read and understand how this all works  as part of Universal Credit Programme as very few are talking about the structure and behavioural ideology behind it all. I will load slides and links to documents for people to download. Please read them ….

Well Folks as with my previous blog on Universal Credit there are 4 stages to this training programme so I am just going to put the shit shows on this blog so you can see for yourselves the behavioral science behind this horror of a policy. Apologies for its length.

 

Introduction;

About Me;

My 4 Steps;

My Values;

My Action Plan;


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Government has now turned it’s attention to the poorest pensioners. With the introduction of Universal Credit people in this group could face losses of £140 per week and over.

Please click the link below, then click send an email to your MP and post onto pensioner sites so that they know what is going to happen after May15th this year 2019.

This is a must read!

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 !

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

DWP Dirty Tricks


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Are the DWP up to Dirty Tactics again?

I’m not a great believer in conspiracy theories generally, but we have exposed them before playing dirty tricks to deny claimants their entitlement and we have a government department who has gone rogue with corrupt practices so instructions must have come from the top and filtered through to managers to instruct staff on procedures, or is it that the staff think they are administering Social Security Payments as if it was coming out their own pockets filled with prejudices instilled in them by the wild claims that people are fiddling the system and must be stopped at all costs? Given the recent damning report By UN Rapporteur Phillip Alston the Government are not happy bunnies.

I have heard numerous stories the last few months ,where people are being denied their claims only to win on appeal, with catastrophic consequences for claimants. Leaving them at risk of Debt, Homelessness,  Housebound, and tales of the Disastrous Universal Credit Project leaving many unable to pay their way and heading to food banks in their droves, and worst still some having their children removed because they are deemed unable to meet the child’s basic needs due to sanctions or income removal and leading to death in some cases.

THIS HAS TO STOP!

I am now finding myself in the same position after many years claiming ESA and PIP find myself looking into the abyss. Many Claimants are now in process of being transferred to PIP from DLA or ESA to UC.

I had my letter informing me that I was now subject to a DLA/ PIP transfer so dutifully I rang and started the process and was sent a PIP form to complete which had to be completed by a set date I wasn’t too concerned with my medical problems.

I was diagnosed with a rare type of angina (Prinzmetals ) earlier in 2004 which was also causing me massive problems when a neighbour found me in the garden on the floor amongst washing I had planned to put on washing line. I am in and out hospital like a blue ass fly due to attacks ever since. I have been half blind since 2008 after Cataracts came on very suddenly after major abdominal surgery later in 2004 and other 4 subsequent major surgeries and recurrent sepsis to rectify my first surgery botch job which almost cost me my life more than once. This left me chronically disabled. In 2005 I had my first TIA ( Transcient Cerebal Isachemia) so you know this is serious shit, and I have had others since. I was diagnosed with Congenital Bilateral Hip Dysplasia in 2014 after years of complaining about hip pain which was impacting on my walking ability. I have a list other medical issues on top of all this which  are sensitive that I don’t want the whole world to bloody know about. Against all the odds I’m still here fighting my corner and being a pain in the governments arse.

So I can hear you all yelling get to the fucking point!

 

In September 2018 I suffered a Retinal Eye Tear which thanks to the quick thinking of my Opthalmologist was sent for emergency surgery the same day  to save my good eye which had been fixed in 2008 with a new lens and becoming temporarily totally blind it was a bit of a shock I can tell you. Anyway in October I had my assessment  and this ATOS assessor (Nurse) was obsessed with my ability to still legally be able to drive and I challenged her thinking during the assessment. Yes It is legal to drive with one eye if you pass the visual tests to DVLA standards . I hadn’t been driving of late much as I broke my wrist in Feb and was in plaster for 6 weeks and the retinal tear also held life back a bit and had to get friends and neighbours to ferry me to my eye appointments. I requested a copy of the assessors report 3 times during October and I didn’t trust this assessor one inch, call it gut feeling.

Lo and behold I get a compliance interview after someone reported me maliciously about my mobility issues, which was dismissed and not first time this has happened and immediately I felt it was likely to be this assessor this time because I had challenged her, not that I can prove it as they can accuse you of anything and you have no right to know who and defend yourself against these malicious lies. Then suddenly by some miracle after numerous attempts to obtain my report it lands on the mat.  Well as I read through it I began to feel absolute rage that it was full of inaccuracies and assumptions based on the unqualified assessors own prejudices .

When I emailed them for all info they hold I received a message left on phone saying anything over 6 years is destroyed. My award was for 10 years – call me a cynical old swine but this is bullshit!

Naturally I will fight this all the way however the consequences of the report are far ranging, it will likely result in No Award being made for either mobility and care although that’s still pending the decision notice has not arrived yet. It will mean a huge drop in income and removal of my only means of getting out my mobility car,and paying others for the things I cant do myself, but it could also affect my ESA award with removal of SDP and disability premiums which will be another significant loss of income and most likely lead to a review of my Support group status on ESA.

If this happens that could trigger a new assessment (likely)and change of circumstances and removal of Transitional Protections moving me onto Universal Credit which has just gone full service in my area while I try to fight these bastards , plunging me into debt and destitution and unable to pay my way or eat.

 

So my question is this a deliberate way to target claimants to remove Transitional Protections and SDP so they pay out less long term and shift as many as possible onto UC?  There certainly something fishy about this given I’m a leading activist for last 10yrs I don’t believe this was coincidence? If you have been affected same way recently or by other deceptive means by DWP or their providers get in touch  send me message and your Identity will not be revealed lets collate our evidence.
