    Hi @VICBAILEY and welcome

    The tribunal are not interested in lies, misquotes or falsifications. The only way to win at tribunal is to show that you meet the criteria for each descriptor that applies
    Be all you can be, make  every day count. Namaste

    the decision maker just awarded me points (ZERO ) , from the lies and wrongfull opinion of the assessor, i meet the criteria, as originally i was awarded 11 points ( and that was under-awarded)  circumstances meant i missed tribunal original pip, this  was request to review my claim( on the error the dwp made), but dwp put me threw new assessment, saying my circumstances have changed, yada yada yada, gave me zero points

    infact all the lies and opinions,  focus on , the narrative, no cognitive impairment, but no cognitive tests where carried out at assessment,  REALLY , ( a court case ) dwp tribunal papers would be tossed out
