    This goes back to April this year and as we are not allowed to get into discussions re: the election theres little I can say in reply.
    What I will say however is that when I was moved from IB to ESA it was done on paper, my review last year was face2face, on both occasions I was happy with the result even the face2face was balanced and fair as was my PIP this year (moved from DLA) and payment increased.
    So whilst I agree the system is far from perfect its not always as bad as we expect.
    Be extra nice to new members.

    I was also moved from IB to ESA after 20 years on it, then told in a letter you will never be any worse off, then the following year lost access to free meds and glasses etc and well everything else, so never always believe what you read, no matter who writes it
