    I wonder when all the transition from DLA to PIP will be put to bed not, withstanding under 16’s, because I made the transition in 2017 and thought I must have been one of the last but I still see claims now.

    Wasn’t the transitions supposed to finish around 2016-2017? I know there late but this must be costing a lot more money than they hoped to save, but then HS2, say no more.😁

    Well… not wanting to tempt fate; I still receive DLA and have done for around 25-years (which I use towards my vehicle). The DWP are well past their deadline of transferring us all to PIP. Due to Covid, I think it will be at least several more months before they get around to reviewing me – the very last of the DLA recipients.

    PIP was intended to save £2 billion.  It has, so far, cost £4 billion to implement.  It is currently running at a £2 billion loss.

    HS2 was supposed to cost £56 billion.  It’s currently costed at £106 billion.  Future projections – I’m sorry, there doesn’t seem to be an ‘infinity’ symbol on my keyboard.

    I made the transition from DLA to PIP in 2019, having claimed DLA from 2012. The award they gave me under PIP was 10 years. However under DLA I had a lifetime award. Does this mean my life will end in 2029?

    I’m sorry, there doesn’t seem to be an ‘infinity’ symbol on my keyboard.

    How to type an infinity symbol (∞) using the keyboard:

    On Windows (10) – hold the ALT key and type 236 on the ‘num lock’ keypad.

    On a mac – Hold the Option key and press 5

    It is more complicated on an iPhone as you have to make a keyboard shortcut.

    Being a scientist in my day job I have to use the symbol quite regularly!

    I suppose the DWP could say…….

    They’ll tell you black is really white
    The moon is just the sun at night
    And when you walk in golden halls
    You get to keep the gold that falls

    Great times back then Phil, most of the bands playing in 2/3000 seater halls so you always felt close to them. I took my son to see Deep Purple a few years ago at the Wembley Arena the atmosphere wasn’t the same.

    I saw Quo at Stafford Bingley Hall which was basically a cow shed.

    A bit off topic now I know but I’ve been to massive concerts that are fantastic and smaller ones that are dives, it depends on who you see and the way it’s been organised.

    I saw Iron Maiden in Malvern as a support band, funny I can’t remember who was the headline, the venue wasn’t much bigger than a church hall.

    Apparently where I live now had all the big bands in the 60’s. Older residents remember Roger Daltrey buying chips in the local chippy.

    @georgie .. another option for the infinity symbol is to copy and paste what BigDave put.. ∞ ∞ ∞ ∞

    All you have to do then is remember where this thread is.

    Fond memories of the Hammersmith Odeon.  Jethro Tull in ’84 (standing at the back), Jethro Tull ’87 and ’89 (progressively closer to the front as I earned more money 😉 ) Hothouse Flowers, Faith No More . . .

    Though my real stomping ground was the Marquee – Wardour Street edition (too many to list) – lots of smaller bands, but Asia (John Payne period) was my favourite.  The Cellar in Oxford was my local.  Favourite Band, seen many, many times – Dumpy’s Rusty Nuts.

    “Box Hill, Box Hill, Here I come.

    I ain’t happy ’til I’ve reached a ton.

    A cup of tea and a greasy dog –

    I’m happy when I’m riding my Hog!

    I’m happy when I’m riding my Hog!”

     

    😀

    Happy Days.

    I was luck enough to see them in Reading in ’76 with Bon.

    Good band for a stamp-along.  I read the other day the The Cellar has finally closed/been closed down.  Ever-extending Rent haggles plus enforced audience capacity reduction – from 150 to 60 – finally killed it.  No doubt it will be ‘redeveloped’ into another bloody wine bar or something.
