Are You Mad? Well, Not Mad Enough To Work For A Living , Clearly!

“I don’t know what I’d do without the CAB,” he blurted suddenly. I glanced at his address and noticed that he lived more than 15 miles away.

So, can’t manage to get to work, but able to travel 15 miles for a free handout, eh?

“Do you have any income other than ESA?” He shook his head. “I’ll refer you for a food parcel if you’d like?” He looked down, which I took as agreement.


It’s the third time in the last two weeks we’ve seen a client with a note from their doctor to say they are unfit for work and yet has been passed as fit for work by the Department for Work and Pensions. What sort of assessment are they getting? All three of the clients had mental health problems.

I think I must be the mad one. I’m working to pay for it all.

    The comments made my head spin. Everything is the fault of “Evil Tories” apparently.

    Beware – the link goes to the Guardian, which has its own special kind of commentator. These people are always amusing in their expectations of unlimited state support. But it’s tiresome to read too many of the annoyingly one-sided comments, as the Guardian does not welcome or allow balance.

    This “Michael” was entirely to blame for his re-assessment as fit for work, as he did not present his doctor’s letter at the DWP hearing. A letter specifically given to him for that purpose. So it’s hardly the fault of “the evil Tories”.

      Yeah, I read the first one about government not having to make cuts but wanting to and realised these people were the usual morons.

      The government has no money. It’s all ours. If the state spend smore than we earn, it lands us in debt. That debt has to be funded from tax revenue, tax revenue that cannot be spent on services people want and need.

      That tax reduction also reduces demand, creating unemployment, further reducing the tax base.

      Moron guardian readers: taxes have to be cut, spending has to be reduced. Not doing so destroys the country and creates poverty. Real poverty, not the Left wing hasn’t been on holiday for 4 weeks type so get over your own stupidity and accept that yes, the state must spend less else there is no state at all.

      Stupid guardian readers.
