    Thanks for this.This post of yours should be flagged and kept near the top of the page,due to its importance IMO.The line below is the one that i thought was most worrying,however it is exactly what i have suspected for some time now

    QUOTE --- "The DWP don’t follow their own rules regarding which descriptor a claimant meets for an activity."

    I would suggest that these assessment companies (Capita etc,etc) are, at best, ineffective and, at worst,corrupt.After all,never let it be forgotten that it is in their financial interests to find as many people possible fit for work.

    84% of original  decisions turned over ??...How did it ever get to this?
