    I've seen that a few times in the last few days! I think I saw it on Facebook where a lady got her appeal papers and the papers of 2 others.  :/

    Isn't it nice to know our welfare state is in such capable hands?

    I'm told that appeals have a much better than even chance of success, and this is just the DWP's horrible way of discouraging people from making and pursuing claims. It's SO nasty and SO stressful, and it speaks of such ignorance and utter lack of care for people's well-being.

    I'm so sorry that you're having to go through this, but you're doing absolutely the right thing in following through with it, and letting people know the idiocy you're faced with.

    Really best of luck with it all, one day - as long as people keeping speaking up - this will improve. X
