Yes, in an ideal world it should be scrapped altogether.
The word of your own doctor who knows you should be enough.

But I have signed the petition above anyway, because unfortunately I don't think we'll see the WCA abolished any time soon. :unsure:

The Green Party have stated they would scrap it, and scrap PIP and reinstate DLA ...

I signed it too. Don't think Labour will scrap it. probably won't modify it if it is likely to help a lot of people = more people off benefits.

I notice when Labour get in they never undo all the crap things the Tories put in place. Also I think New Labour started these benefit reforms/cuts, even planned the WCA. Think.
