TOPIC: New ESA medical test

Re:New ESA medical test 8 years 3 months ago #18393

The way it is going will there be any point in filling in the forms, going through medical examinations or even going to the interviews.

You may as well rip everything up and throw them in the bin.

No one it seems is going to pass the tests.

Before long this country will be unique in the world it will have eliminated illness and disabilities.

There will be no such thing as disability discrimination because no one will be disabled any more

Hooray utopia.

This country is already unique, there is nowhere else in the western world like it. No one would allow it, only the British. To quote their mantra "you are not disabled or ill, you are economicaly inactive"

Hi Andy, I also have MS and am equally worried. It seems like a lot of us are going to be in front of the queue for JSA and no support. I care for a close relative - who stands to loose £50+ if I claim carer's allowance and income support instead - incidentally this is still a fraction of what I need to survive - but I am seriously considering it to avoid the humiliation of this interview :S . Grim days ahead.

I agree entirely. Still in shock. I keep telling people and they don't believe me,

This whole thing bothers me so much, we are all talking about it on here, and on some of the other forums. I know that many, including myself, have written to MP's, Local and national papers and TV news, but yet, I have yet to see one single report, are we being ignored, in the hope that we will just go away and shut up!

What do we haver to do, to get anyone to listen and take this seriously.
