Remaining politically neutral during General Election 2024

Michael Lewendon They ask you to fill in their questions, and you have to pick one of their answers What's that all about? Let us ask them Questions? And give them answers to pick from?. please tick box which best suits D.W.P QUESTION (1) Government are paying Millions to two companies every year for what end? ANSWER (1) So you don't receive the complaints yourselves? passing the buck? ANSWER (2) Do the D.W.P who granted DLA to millions of Disabled persons realize the stress and anxiety they are inflicting by NOW allowing these money saving Companies to revoke the disabled person's allowance? Do they ask if the money the disabled receive helps? And what would happen if this money suddenly stopped? ANSWER (3) Do the D.W.P feel they can't do their job properly? Will they admit they failed? Will they be reprimanded for their failings? or is this a money saving exercise by them using Companies that revoke DLA payments knowing the old and sick are less likely to appeal? ANSWER(4) Why are the Disabled not told of the 65% of appeals are upheld at the P.I.P meeting they had to attend? Why are they not asked if their money gets stopped would they feel suicidal? How many of the 35% that do not appeal are followed up and asked why they did not appeal? Are the DWP happy not to do this? ANSWER (5) What PIP Questions about the family of the disabled are asked? Do they asked how it would effect the running of a normal day if their DLA was revoked? Taking away over 50 thousand disabled cars already? Taking away Money they have used to pay carers, Help, Aid, etc.? PLEASE IF ANYONE HAS OTHER QUESTIONS THEY WOULD LIKE TO AS DWP OR PIP PLEASE ADD TO THIS, IN THE HOPE THEY REVERSE THIS PIP MADNESS.

    Hello @Booker1234   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for sharing.   Interesting post may I add. I am sure others will be answering you.

    May I add have a look at our posts on Talk about PIP. Members have given comments, advice and other aspects of PIP.

    One suggestion to you is to look at the following websites. Benefit's and Works. Disability News.  More than an eye opener.  Very useful.

    Write to your MP is another idea do want to know what is happening. There are being acutely aware of the PIP situation. Know many members have done this.

    We are a supportive friendly community.

    Ask anything you wish some one will know an answer.

    Please take care
