      No worries, Mel Stride, Work & Pensions Minister on the radio this morning said they are having a 12 weeks discussion/ review. They’ll be out on their arses looking for real jobs before they can even think about doing anything about it.

        Yeah but I’m not that hopeful that the next lot will be that nice either.

          Government to reform disability benefits system to ensure they’re targeted at those most in need.

          Bull ??? They say one thing but do something far more nefarious.  Modernising Support Green Paper. Please do take time to read this. What do you think?

          Regular PIP payments could be replaced with one-off grants.

          The DWP has said it plans to explore “alternative approaches to support” which will replace regular PIP cash payments.

          It is considering using one-off grants to help people with significant costs such as home adaptations or expensive equipment, as well as giving vouchers to contribute towards specific costs, or reimbursing claimants who provide receipts for purchases of aids, appliances or services.

          The DWP is also considering cutting PIP for some people who have “lower” costs, claiming they “may have better outcomes from improved access to treatment and support than from a cash payment”.

            The Tory’s are trying to create a 2 state nation off the back of the ill and disabled, in the hope of netting votes in the GE!

              That was exactly my thoughts after having spent time reading about the latest proposals.

              I also can’t help but think that should these latest crackpot ideas ever make it as far as implementation then it will destroy the Motability business model completely.

                      They seem to forget it was Cameron that brought PIP in, why does it need reforming already?

                      Essentially they want to change it so we have to justify our spending via Dr’s and get given vouchers not cash.

                      Good news is these scumbag will be long out of office before they can do this
