hi all as most of you will have heard the government have in there penny pinching exploits decided its time to pick on some of the most needy people in society those like myself and tina who through no fault of our own have been unable to work tina as some of you know was until recently wheelchair bound and i have been listed as her carer for 7 years in this time we been on dla which now is being reassessed and called personal independence payment it involves an even bigger form multi pages of medical questions and is not easy to correctly fill in yourself,

so i made an appointment with citizens advice who filled in the form and then advised me to send it either recorded delivery or signed for which we did and i have the receipt here,well the reason he told us that is because if you go through all the trouble of completing the massive form and send it back in the envelope provided they simply wait till the expiry time of your application and then send a letter saying that due to you failing to return the form and relevant info they have now canceled your claim,ow and if your car is mobilty scheme they want it returned straight away or if you get tax paid they want you to go pay for it! so also ensure you have photocopy of the entire form before sending it!

so i did spend a while on the phone this morning and after being told they had not received the form i told them it was sent signed for and gave the details from the post office website she went of came back and low and behold had found our form and now its in a pile being sent for medical assesment,this is a joke as last time the med centre was in central brighton up 5 huge stairs and disabled access is locked,well half of it is one door open so not wide enough for a wheelchair! but get this next to it is 2 steps and a ramp above which is cctv,so if you climb out of your chaIr and do the steps and ramp you have just failed the assesment and not even entered the building yet!so peeps if you in the same boat do be careful,crafty bastards now.

peace

Its this country all over at the minute mate it makes my fucking piss boil.we been waiting 5 years to get some support for our eldest whos got some quite severe behaviour and social issues and cams(childrens mental health services) have refused 4 doctors refferals.Nowt is given the money or even the basic thought to help genuinely needy people.I heard this mornin that the goverment has introduced a scheme in wich rape victims who want to claim tax credits have to prove they been raped most likely to a coldhearted goverment stooge.im ashamed to live in england in 2017 its a fucking disgrace...but Teresa the walking corpse May can buy 1000 pound leather trousers thats fine...cunts.

Tbh ive not heard a thing from them since last Labour Government they just put me income support when incapacity benefit stopped without questions and stuff is same atmo, so i suppose its on cards anytime duke, ill keep you informerd and possibly chat via pm when stuff lands if i get stuck mukka, thx m8.

 

Summink different but watch the new Ken Loach movie > I am Daniel Blake, so true with whats happening to poor and needy these days in the UK, a touching film that opens your eyes as to whats going down, more so for those who where blinkers and dont deal with shit like this, but yes a very good film and so true in many many ways that all us fucked up peeps can relate too in one way or another, showing the shocking state of the UK these days.

Good advice duke, Its worth spending a few quid on tracked and signed for postage with anything official, especially the DWP and HMRC.

 

I drove my mrs to her assessment last year and parked up right under the cctv camera outside the main entrance.  She went in alone and I took the dogs for a walk.  In the report she was downgraded from the higher rate of PIP to the lower rate because she had managed to get to the assessment centre herself.  

 

I made a FOI request to the hospital, council and police for the cctv footage and guess what?  The cameras weren't on that day.  Nobody wanted to know. Its crazy how they are getting away with bare faced lies.

 

Next time I'll record everything myself.
