I'm sure it's a judicious use of resources, and quite in line with the prudent 'good housekeeping' we've come to expect from very, very responsible governments over the years.

The beyond-reproach companies who administer these eminently fair and medically-sound assessments, deserve the money they get. There is really no such thing as a free lunch. That's left-wing propaganda gone mad. That bloke in North Korea is probably responsible for way-out views like that. Or it could be a remnant from the cold, bleak days of the Soviets. There are still 'reds under the bed'. These people don't give up easily yano.

In any case, what do people expect? It's shocking to imagine further raids on the taxpayer should fund disability benefits to any degree. I mean, surely it's blindingly and bleeding obvious. Why throw money down the drain on nonsense, when it could be much more productively spent on civilizing, just and life-enhancing projects, like the Trident nuclear missile 'defence' system.

It really is a no brainer :meanie:
