A new book by former healthcare professional, disabled veteran and relentless campaigner Mo Stewart sets out to expose the truth behind the work capability assessment and the accelerating destruction of the benefits system.
The book has been praised by a wide range of academics and campaigners.
Sir Bert Massie, former Chair of the Disability Rights Commission writes:
“In this book Mo Stewart peels back the layers of deception and the confused thinking that underpins the destruction of social support for disabled people. She shows how an American insurance company has contributed to this as it sought to expand its market to the UK. Disabled people are expected to undergo medical assessment to claim benefits but the people conducting them seem to know little about disabled people or disability in general. . . Stewart names names. She shows where and how the policies originated. She destroys all claims that they were based on solid research. And she vividly paints a clear picture of how disabled people are the group chosen to pay for the bankers greed and stupidity in 2008, as government slashes expenditure.
“To understand what is happening and why, this is the book to read and I thank Mo Stewart for writing it.”
