Read the article. The current system is stupid and has been the straw that broke the camels back in regards to people taking their own lives. And yet the government still carries on. The dwp can talk all it wants about numbers and stats, but what about those who are still suffering? what about those who took their lives because of the decisions made by the dwp. And what about those who are in poverty because they were wrongly assessed.

I am probably alone in this, but I suspect this is part of a long-term strategy to rounding up the mentally ill and putting us in confinement camp. At the start we would be forced to do labour, but eventually we would just disappear. :mad:

Although I would and do wish to work, certainly part time mode, I h ope they don't connect to me, because i am on medical benefits, two types of medical benefits I hascent to add, and also, I happily manage with volunteering.


So hopefully, they shan't connect to me, they won't be able to anyhow, because, I am on incapacity benefit and also dla benefit.
