goodness knows!
"The government's welfare changes for disabled people in England, Scotland and Wales have been delayed.

People will move from Disability Living Allowance to the Personal Independence Payment next week in only certain areas instead of the whole of Great Britain.

Work and pensions minister Mike Penning said the process of reassessing people was "taking longer than expected".

Shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves said it was the "latest example of chaos" in the department."

I think the PIP and the "universal credit" change sucks ass.
It's all about cutting down costs, except they don't have the spine to admit that fact!

Just seen this on the news.Apparently there will be no delays in introducing the changes where I am in the Midlands.Im currently receiving DLA and they haven't contacted me to tell me about the changes.I suppose at best I'll be getting less than now,or they might try and take the lot off me.No wonder people are demonstrating in the streets.
