Cash Not Care: the planned demolition of the UK welfare state

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.”

Possibly one should 'American Healthcare consultant' as American Healthcare Charlatan' since most people (both patients and professionals) are staggered at the ridiculous lengths that 'the system' goes to in order to evade responsibility and payment

Quoting hablitza tamnoides:
The book looks great, but it seems inappropriate to provide a link to purchase it from amazon, given that Amazon are widely reported to avoid their taxes and treat their workers appallingly ... surely those of us faced with injustices in our battles with the DWP and profit-hungry entities such as Atos and Maximus should stand together with those in work, and wider society, who are treated badly by the unjust and profit-hungry?


Agree. I put a comment on Vox Political article and link to Amazon about this too. I don't believe they are yet paying their full quota of UK sales tax, but there are so many other issues about Amazon re appalling treatment and pay of workers, authors etc. and general big corpa aspect, global market control in so many areas now putting many many small companies out of business. Etc.
