Suing DWP for compensation ...
I've not had any benefits whatsoever since October 2017, and am living off my, very rapidly dwindling savings. This is due to maladministration and misconduct in public office by DWP, HMCTS now ICE.
I have threatened to sue for all the distress and loss in interest and benefits that those that have wilfully neglected me and maliciously exercised their public office have caused.
I have tried everywhere, CAB, MPs heads of service, heads of service in opposition and cannot find anyone to help me. I am alone.
Despite this, I have managed to trudge on, but nearly cracked last weekend - for the first time in nearly 30 years I was in such despair I was left wondering what is the point of living anymore?
Fortunately, and being urged on by others, I forced myself to attend my appeal hearing even though I was not fit to be there. For 2 years, DWP and HMCTS have refused to consider my case under exceptional circumstances. Last week, for the first time, they did and my appeal was allowed.
I am aware DWP may appeal, but all they will achieve by doing this is give unequivocal evidence of further malicious exercise of their public office.
I need someone to help me. I am not eligible for legal aid as my owner occupied house is taken as an asset !
Is there anybody out there that can help? Or put me in touch with somebody, or an organisation that can help me to highlight the not-fit-for-purpose-system and the denial of natural justice that disability benefit claimants are facing by using my case ?
In advance, many thanks for any help anyone can give...
