    Hi is nice to welcome you here.
    It is good  you bring your state over the DWP. I think most of people will share your feelings. 
    I would like to know one day who is the top top behind the DWP and what sort of person he/she is. For me it is the lest professional service in UK as any of the letters is not sign with name of person sending it to you. I am assuming all of DWP is band of ROBOTS . 
    I hope you will have a nice weekend anyway. Calm dawn your emission and see maybe there is more optimistic thing for you just in the corner : )

    iza - the ultimate head of the DWP is the relevant Secretary of State.  But your complaints would have more force if you went via your MP who would write to the Secretary of State for an explanation.

    sickofitall - have you appealed?  Many appeals are successful.
