A New Direction From Crabb And The DWP: Outright Fucking Lies

crabb-resignUnemployment has risen in the last three months but you wouldn’t know that from today’s gushing press release from the Stephen Crabb and the DWP.

There were 21,000 more unemployed people in the latest period and, in further bad news for the government, the number of people claiming unemployment benefits rose by just under 7000.  Neither of these key facts are mentioned on the DWP websites and it is only by digging into the Labour Market Release produced by the Office for National Statistics that this information is available.

Previously the DWP has sulkily acknowledged any rise in unemployment whilst pointing out how wonderful everything else is.  The truth is that the Labour Market Statistics contain a huge amount of information and normal fluctuations within the figures mean that they can usually be cherry-picked for both good and bad news.  Stephen Crabb does just that today by claiming that a small fall in the number of people who are economically inactive is a huge triumph.  This by the way is always a sign of desperation.  A fall in economic inactivity can mean a massive amount of things, from variations in the number of those who are long term sick to a drop in the number of people taking early retirement.  In the latest figures it largely represents a fall in the number of students and of those taking time from work to look after the family home.

Crabb is also celebrating a tiny rise in the total number of people with jobs with the DWP claiming this is driven by those entering full time work.  But even this is hugely misleading.  Population increases combined with a just about growing economy mean that there are almost always more people in work than ever before.  The question is whether the rise in the number of jobs is keeping pace with growth in the working age population.  This month that didnt happen.  The number of working age people rose by 27,000 in the latest three month period, but the working population grew by just 22,000.  And whilst there was an increase in full time work as Crabb claimed, this was only amongst those who are self-employed.  The number of people working full time for an employer fell by 34,000.

These figures don’t matter much unless we see them repeated over the coming months.  What is critical is the way they were, or in most cases werent announced by the government.  Departmental communications are bound by rules intended to ensure both impartiality and objectivity. Yet today’s press release from the DWP was an attempt to deliberately mislead the public about the true state of the UK’s labour market and that’s called lying.  Even Iain Duncan Smith didn’t try and pull this sort of shit.  Not that often anyway.  Stephen Crabb is moving in a dangerous direction.  Don’t believe a fucking word he says.

    The reason given by Maximus why some people don`t et an ESA50 form is that is special cases people with Mental Health Issues do not fill out a ESA form & go straight to a WCA because people with Mental Health are not able to fill out forms. Maximus policy. Ask the DWP if that`s the DWP policy & they will say No it`s not the DWP policy. So how come it`s the DWP`s contractors policy then.

    People with Mental Health will not get a public form because mental health people are not able to fill out forms. Women will not be getting a form because women are not able to fill out forms. Black people are not able to fill out forms. Jewish people will not be getting a form because Jewish people are not able to fill out forms.

    DWP you are powerless unless you change your contractors policy on the matter or the DWP are liable for Discrimination for actions based on the policy.

    I have now been banned from every public form & banned from all jobcentres. Being banned off every DWP public form speaks for itself. Dictatorship controls who gets public forms. I have been banned form the Welfare State. So I would like to report myself for 35 years of benefit fraud which you have to investigate. So you will need to dig out 35 years of my DWP papers & by law you have to take action. So do your work & take me to court.

    Rachel Reeves says Cameron’s comments about Khan ‘beyond contempt’

    Rachel Reeves, the Labour MP and former shadow work and pensions secretary, told the World at One a few minutes ago that David Cameron’s comments about Sadiq Khan at PMQs (see 1.13pm.) She was responding to the leader of the Commons, Chris Grayling, who said Khan’s decision to share platforms with extremists raised questions about his judgment. Reeves said:

    I would expect better from you, Chris, and I would expect better from the prime minister. This is gutter politics. The insinuation that Sadiq Khan is somehow a friend of Isis [Islamic State] is beyond contempt. I served in the shadow cabinet with Sadiq Khan for many years. He is a man of the utmost integrity. He has taken on extremism in the Islamic community and on many occasions he has fallen out with leaders in the Islamic community, for example on equal marriage. So the idea that he is somehow a friend of extremism, a friend of terrorists, is beyond contempt.

    • Sadiq Khan should know better than to follow a cult founded by the paedophile Mohammed.

      And women like Rachel Reeves should know better. Islam is a misogynist’s wet dream.

              London mayor row: Cleric feels ‘betrayed’ by Conservatives

              BBC – 21st April 2016

              A London cleric who David Cameron described as a supporter of so-called Islamic State has told the BBC he attended Conservative events and feels betrayed by the party.

              Mr Cameron criticised Labour’s London mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan on Wednesday for appearing with cleric Suliman Gani.

              On the BBC’s The World Tonight, Mr Gani said he felt “disheartened and betrayed” at being described this way.

              Number 10 declined any further comment.

              But at a Westminster press briefing on Wednesday, the prime minister’s official spokeswoman said : “The point the prime minister was referring to was that, at events, this individual has spoken up in support of a range of things including the formation of Islamic State.”

              Conservative mayoral candidate Zac Goldsmith previously described Mr Gani as “one of the most repulsive men in Britain”.

              Mr Gani, a community leader and imam from Tooting in south London, said on hearing this characterisation: “I was shocked – I couldn’t believe it.

              “I felt very disheartened and betrayed.

              “I felt that this is hypocrisy, because I attended a Conservative Muslim Forum event invited by the Conservative candidate for Tooting… to encourage more Muslims to become Conservative councillors.”

      • So no other religious (or non-religious) people have been found out to be paedohiles? Especially catholics and christians, more so those that are meant to be trusted.

    When will you be transferred onto UC?

    The Government has said that existing claimants of IR-ESA will be transferred in a phased migration programme beginning in June 2018 and ending by March 2021. The detailed rules and arrangements have yet to be announced. ‘Transitional protection’ will ensure that you are not worse off when transferring from your current benefits onto UC.

    If you are getting C-ESA, you will stay on that benefit but will be subject to new rules, including more stringent conditionality and sanctions.

    Terminally ill Northampton woman has appeal over disability benefits refused

    northamptonchron.co.uk/news – 20th April 2016

    terminally ill cancer patient who was refused a disability benefit by the Government has had her appeal turned down though her GP provided a lengthy description of her illness.

    Jane Windle, from Parkwood Street, St James, was first diagnosed with a carcinoid form of cancer in 2001 and has tumours in her lungs and pelvis.

    But last month it was revealed the 52-year-old would not be entitled to receive the Personal Independent Payment (PIP) even though she has been receiving the Disability Living Allowance, which PIP is phasing out, since she got ill.

    Mrs Windle has a stent fitted and has difficulty, breathing, moving and even struggles to stand up unaided.

    The couple appealed the decision at the start of April and supplied the Department for Work and Pensions with a DS1500 form from her GP explaining the extent her cancer affects her, listing a range of other debilitating conditions including Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

    But they have now learned their appeal has been refused.

    Mrs Windle says the decision has left the couple desperate.

    She said: “It is so stressful.

    “Now that money has stopped it is just crazy.

    “We just think, how are we going to manage?

    “I will have to get rid of all sorts of things – my phone will have to go, there is no way I can afford that.”

    Mrs Windle and husband William have met with Northampton South MP David Mackintosh, to see if he can get their assessment overturned.

    They are also looking to take the DWP to a tribunal to contest the decision – a process that can take months.

    Mrs Windle says there is no way she can go out and find work.

    “I just can’t,” she said. “I can go to sleep for two to three days at a time.”

    “What if I am at work for a couple of hours and need to sleep? What are they going to do, roll out a bed?

    Mr and Mrs Windle can apply for Jobseekers’ Allowance, but that would mean both would actively need to seek employment, even though Mrs Windle has regular doctors’ appointments and needs her husband for assistance.

    Mr Windle said he will not stop fighting the decision.

    “Jane’s assessment simply isn’t true.

    “If these assessors were working in a hospital we would be looking at a complete misdiagnosis.”

    • Catch-22

    • Has Sue Marsh been informed?

      • No one hears from her since she got a cushy job. Seems she only cared when she was affected but now, well silence and blocking says it all really.

        • Thing is she was always going on about her health and relating how poor it was. Then when Maximus, fiercely criticized by her in her blog, offered her £75,000 per year (or whatever it was to work for them doing a job she wasn’t even qualified for), she sprang off her sick bed and got stuck in! Which is bad on two counts: first, she wasn’t sick enough not to work and second she shit on all of the people she formerly championed who really couldn’t work no matter how much money they might get offered.

          Piss poor behavior all round really.

  8. Thatcher didn’t hide unemployment figures she just hid the claimants on disability benefits Crabb makes Thatcher look like a saint.

  9. I should have got a form last July but as I clearly pointed out to the corrupt DWP after having a legal representative look at the ESA72 was that page 2 of the ESA72 clearly stated WE WILL CONTACT YOU AGAIN ON OR AFTER (DATE) In April 2014 the corrupt DWP went and removed that phrase from the ESA72, they may think they have beaten me but I have already been advised of a way to get them to give a renewal date where the corrupt DWP could once again drop themselves in it. It involves the wording the HP uses on their report, that is all I am prepared to say at this stage.

    Revealed: DWP’s secret, ‘financially devastating’ proposals for benefits appeals

    DNS – 21st April 2016

    The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) has drawn up secret plans for sweeping reforms that would make it far harder for disabled people to appeal against having their benefit claims turned down.

    The heavily-redacted document was sent to Disability News Service (DNS) by DWP following a freedom of information request, but disabled activists from the grassroots campaign network Black Triangle managed to reveal the words behind the blacked-out areas.

    The document, titled Appeals Strategy – Post Election Planning (pictured), was drawn up by civil servants just before last year’s general election, and contains 11 policies for a new government to consider, most of which are aimed at reducing the number of successful benefits appeals and cutting welfare spending.

    Eight of the policies – which appear to be focused heavily on disability benefits such as employment and support allowance (ESA), personal independence payment (PIP) and disability living allowance – were redacted by DWP so they could not be read.

    Work on introducing two of the three non-redacted policies is already underway.

    Among the eight redacted policies is a plan to introduce a completely new appeal system, which would mean far fewer appeals being heard by tribunals, for example those concerning a point of law, with others heard by “an alternative dispute regime”.

      The noose is tightening

      Dear Mr Slater,

      Thank you for your Freedom of Information request of 21 March 2016. You asked:

      I have seen a copy of a DWP leaflet called “Universal Credit if you have a disability or health
      condition” dated February 2015. It contains the following text:

      Work Capability Assessments
      A Work Capability Assessment will find out if you:
      • are fit for work
      • are able to do some work or are able to prepare for work, or • have significant limits on your
      ability to prepare for work

      Given that primary legislation (Welfare Reform Act 2007 & 2012) specifically forbids the DWP
      from making anyone who qualifies for ESA (SG or WRAG) carry out work this statement
      appears on the face of it to be unlawful.

      RFI1: Could you please supply any information held about how a WCA can prescribe that
      some people are able to “do some work”?

      RFI2: Could you please provide any guidance issued to DWP staff that suggests or states that
      people who qualify for ESA can be compelled to “do some work”.

          PART 31.

          A decision that a claimant does not have Limited Capability for work, or Limited Capability for Work Related Activity, is colloquially referred to as a decision that the claimant is “FIT FOR WORK”. However, what this actually means is that the claimant does not meet the functional descriptors set out in the ESA Regulations for LCA or LCWRA.
          IT DOES NOT REPRESENT A FINDING ON WHETHER OR NOT THE CLAIMANT IS EMPLOYABLE OR WHETHER THE CLAIMANT WILL BE ABLE TO FIND WORK.

The problem arises at point of entry & point of entry to a contract called ESA. Atos & Maximus are powerless claiming to be from the DWP with tatty scraps of paper called demands which is not your duty, your duty is assessments & that is all.

Now Atos & Maximus are getting angry they did not get their money & are cutting corner to get double now. The greedy failures. After a year you are still scared to report back to the DWP because you are greedy. £24,000 generated for going through the ESA & WCA process & I get Zero.

    Encourage good practice
    Promoting equality of opportunity
    Promoting awareness and understanding of rights

    How can Lord Chris Holmes be seen to be promoting the above when he went on to vote for these cuts to both ESA and PIP as a Conservative Peer, his actions will have a detrimental effect on disabled people’s lives to both Independent living and will undermine the UK’s Human Rights obligations.
    As disability rights campaigner’s we are calling for his immediate resignation of the position he hold’s as Disability Commissioner and Chair of the Disability Committee for EHRC as alongside our peers and other user led organisation’s we think he is no longer worthy of this position.

      Jeff Suter ·

      Aylward Mansell was Chief Medical advisor to the DWP and at the SAME TIME was appointed to head the Unum funded Centre For Bio-Psycho Social studies at Cardiff University. A defacto conflict of interest. After he left the DWP he took up the Unum post full-time. Unum is the giant American insurance company which has been found to be crooked in the USA and was described as “..a disability denial machine..” by US law makers. Unum’s computer algorithmn, that was designed to prevent policy holders from claiming on their insurance, is the basis for the DWP’s Work Capability Assessment computer programme. The tick box system that finds the dead fit for work. Unum have been advising the Tory party since Peter Lilley and his “little list”. Managers from Unum transferred to Atos when they were conducting WCA. It stinks of corruption, collusion and ruthless ideology.

  25. Stepping Razor Sound Plate System

    UC has no form – The claim process is based on the Claimant Commitment contract. once that is sorted out you can go onto UC having signed online or over the phone. The claimant commitment is all about getting work & what to expect from your work coach, so totally the wrong thing for the disabled who can`t work. What UC does from ESA is make no one disabled so we are all equal to find work.

  26. Vote for independence from the EU. gravy train.

  27. The EU trades with poorer countries and sells their goods in catalogues in Uk at ridiculous prices, £80 for a dress etc. The only jobs created are in the call centres and warehouses that are storing the goods.

My local Jobcentre is about three miles away from me and I’ve taken to walking to and from it most weekdays (to accumulate time to record on my “Worksearch Diary”) spending a couple of hours at the Jobcentre itself, using their piss poor workstations, looking for work. Walking very slowly and scanning online vacancies at a snail-like pace enables me to book something like five hours every weekday activity. Walking to the library a couple of times a week (its only open for three days a week due to cuts) to read local newspapers for free adds another four to six hours to my “worksearch” total leaving me to make up the remaining few hours in other ways.

    The Jobcentre is utterly useless as far as “worksearch” is concerned. Even though it has a lost of internet ready computers not one of them is connected to a printer (so you can get hard copy of your CV, say, or apply for a job by letter), you can’t use a telephone except for “special” purposes, or use a fax machine. Nor does the Jobcentre help its customers by providing stamps and stationery, which can be very expensive when you’re on Jobseeker’s Allowance or Universal Credit.

    Surely if the DWP heaps 35-hour worksearches on the unemployed, who might well be paying a portion of Council Tax and/or the Bedroom Tax, leaving them with very little, Jobcentres ought to provide computers with internet access, telephones, printers, fax machines as well as postage stamps and stationery to help unemployed folk to be able to do the amount of worksearch foisted on them?

    I reckon pretty much everyone will be forced to cheat, every day, in order to satisfy the 35-hour work search demand. I don’t believe that anybody really could spend so many hours actively seeking work, day in and day out, day after day, for however long they remain jobless.

    The only purpose of this demand, as far as I can see, is to gain political points by appearing to be tough on benefit claimants and/or to pounce on perfectly innocent people who fail in some small way to honour their so-called “claimant commitment” and end up severely financially sanctioned as a result.

    Franz Kafka couldn’t have invented this shit folks!

    • You whining little bastard, shut that snivelling mouth of yours You workshy, lazy, indolent piece of detritus. I DON’T WANT TO HEAR YOUR FUCKING EXCUSES! DO YOU HEAR ME? Now get on with it You Cunt. Do It! DO IT AND NO MORE BASTARD WHINING.
      AND THE REST OF YOU FILTHY SCUM (‘Cepting fly hawkes, of course, I got plans for her.) DO YOUR FUCKING JOB SEARCH!

      • Plans – building ones I hope?

        • Building a better world for everyone not just the right wing, but the poor and needy also, but it has got to be where the poor are (as the song goes)

      • OLD CIGARETTE is a KNOBHEAD!!

        We already spend 35 hour a week on universal jobmatch You Cunt!

        • People of your calibre, Sniveller, they don’t spend 35 hours a week doing anything, other than watching day time tv, drinking White Lightning and smoking counterfeit Amber Leaf roll ups.
          People of your ilk are fit for nothing. Nothing except 3 litres of Pepsi and some uber cheap pepperoni pizzas bought from Jack Fultons, topped of with some disgustingly shit Soft Scoop rasberry ripple “ice cream”.
          You filthy scum, You’re not fit for purpose.

    SNP calls to see reports on suicides following benefits cuts

    THE SNP’s Westminster spokeswoman for Social Justice and Welfare, Dr Eilidh Whiteford MP, has insisted “lessons must be learned” after disability rights campaigners won an appeal against the UK Government’s refusal to publish reports into the deaths of people who took their own lives after their benefits were cut.

    The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) may now be forced to disclose details of the investigations into suicides and other deaths.

    Whiteford said: “The SNP has twice asked the Prime Minister why these reports have not been published by the DWP and twice there have been no answers.

    “Lessons must be learnt from these tragic deaths and more must be done to ensure that there are no more deaths as a result of the Tories’ deeply damaging policies.”

    “HUNT BACKPEDALS VERY FAST WHEN CHALLENGED”

    Update: Jeremy Hunt said, in Parliament this afternoon, that “Yes, we are imposing a new contract”. This is the first time he has used the word “impose” in the Commons, and one can only assume this is an attempt to sever a line of attack from the Junior Doctors, after yesterday’s Guardian piece; that is, he is basically saying “Right. We’ve said ‘impose’ – now what are you going to do about it?”.

    This is where, legally, it gets messy – and throws up at least three issues.

    One: whether Jeremy Hunt has the right, as Secretary of State for Health, to force Junior Doctor’s employers to accept a new contract without the approval of its employees; the wording of the letter from the DoH solicitors would indicate not, as it appears Hunt is neither their employer nor can he do more than “take steps leading to the introduction of” contracts according to the 2006 act. He has also financially been pressurising Trust’s over the contract, with threats of forcing them to dismiss Junior Doctors or pull their funding if the former won’t impose the contract

    Two: if an employer wishes to “impose” a new contract, they must give formal notice of the termination of the old contract, dismiss the employee and offer re-engagement on the new terms. This throws up a myriad of problems with doctors who are on longer, multi-year contracts with a ‘lead employer’; it only applies in uncomplicated terms to the new, August intake of trainees or those whose contracts expire – and even then, the contract is still deemed unworkable, dangerous and completely irrelevant to a “7-day NHS”, so why should “rookies” be used as guinea pigs?

    Three: Jeremy Hunt is not the “employer” of Junior Doctors who work for NHS Foundation Trusts, councils and GP practices. He can only “instruct” (as noted above), but this can only be after a public consultation has taken place looking at the effects of his plans – which has not been done.

    As Heidi Alexander, Labour Shadow Health Secretary put it: “(Hunt’s) motives, judgement and competence are now being called into question. If Jeremy Hunt is now claiming he isn’t imposing the contract, then this also raises the prospect that he has misled Parliament. (He) needs to urgently clarify whether or not he has the powers to impose a new contract”.

    It matters even more, because the basis for the BMA’s industrial action has been the apparent “imposition” of the contract – and if this is not going to be the case, the Health Secretary has not only misled parliament, but also doctors, professional bodies and the public as a whole.

    • “10, 600 died within six weeks of their claim being ended…………………….

      ………..and that was several years ago before the DWP decided to hide the embarassment by using the stooge purporting to be the Freedom of Information Commissioner, CHRISTOPHER GRAHAM………………..

      • The recorded suicides are merely the tip of the iceberg. Many more, thousands and thousands, have died due to the draconian cuts and imposition of work related activity on the disabled and weak.

        Our social security laws prohibit pushing the infirm into work, the DWP are breaking the law at every level, Equality and Human Rights legislation as well.

        Like any premeditated murder, an accomplice is an asset in hiding the deaths.

        Our UK judiciary and the media channels of the BBC and SKY are both complicit in hiding the state legitimised slayings, in fact the judiciary are the true partners in crime, following government instructions to rob, steal and cheat those not fit to fight back.

        They have no shame, money flows in abundance from those they push into the gutter and succumb to an early grave.

        They have no shame, money flows in abundance from those they push into the gutter and succumb to an early grave.

        Truth has an uncanny way of coming to the surface. The veneer of dishonesty is starting to reveal the true horrors of the worst crimes since the Nazi’s.

        History will paint this government as the cold blooded killers that they really are, the propagators of a social welfare programme that went seriously out of control………………………

      • It is more than likely that they would have died anyway. Face it, Shirker, we all die, it is just a question of when, and how.
        The thing is, do we die with the courage of a platoon of Waffen SS, fighting a rearguard action against hordes of Slavic Red Army brutes, the heroic Teutons fearfully outnumbered, but going down fighting, and refusing to go gently into that dark night, or do we go like some wretched dole wallahs, weeping for their rescinded (and, dare I say it, undeserved) welfare. How do we go, Fuckos? How do we enter the void? Do we do it with courage, like the Krauts, or do we do it with the entirely predictable wailing and gnashing of teeth, the woe is me self pity of the Benefits Class.

  41. “DWP INTENTIONALLY BLOCKS INFORMATION REQUEST ON HOW MANY CANCER SUFFERERS HAVE BEEN CLASSED AS FIT FOR WORK”

    …………FIT FOR WORK AND SUFFERING FROM CANCER?

    THE HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION SHOULD BE JUMPING ALL OVER THESE KILLERS IN THE TORY GOVERNMENT.

    THIS IS THE RESPONSE FROM THE DWP

    I have reviewed the availability of the information you have requested and concluded that the
    detail required regarding treatment or the likelihood of treatment in relation to radiotherapy and
    chemotherapy is not routinely recorded on the data available for analysis. Therefore I uphold
    the decision to withhold the specific information requested under section 12 of the Freedom of
    Information Act (FOIA) as I believe the time it would take for one person to locate and retrieve
    the specific information you requested would exceed 3.5 working days (24 hours).

    THE BODIES ARE STACKING UP…………………..
