DWP Break Law!

Postby MCT » Thu Mar 29, 2012 8:27 pm

I'm sure it won't come as too much of a surprise to many to find out that DWP have broken the law on the DLA/PIP changes!

Parliament’s Joint Committee on Human Rights has slammed the DWP over changes to disability benefits, saying Iain Duncan Smith’s department broke the law with a botched consultation after trying to cover up negative responses from the public.

The name `Condems` suits them just fine ..it has a certain ring to it don`t you think? If they had to walk in our shoes for a week things would change I`m sure but as it is the millionaire former public school boys haven`t got a clue about `normal` life!!

Surely if it has been proved that the law has been broken then PIP should be relooked at!!!!!!

Nope no surprise here!!!! I think the only surprise really is that they haven't broken the law in other areas of the benefits system (or maybe they have and it just hasn't been spotted yet).

I think it was an old episode of Yes Minister, not sure, where someone was challenged to live for a week on benefits as a bet.
They where given the £50 or whatever, and then the next day came bace and asked for that days money as they'd spent the £50 the previous day. Still typical of your average central gov minister and rank and file, and most politicians. No understanding or comprehension of the al world, and the effect that they have on al lives.
