    Hi,British Senior Citizens,With regard to WCA we are sure you will know that BMA has called for a safer method be employed.This has not happened.You may not know that ATOS is linked to a Discredited INS.Com called UNUM INS.USA.
    UNUM have been advisors to DWP for some years and project a view of disabled ppl contrary to the UN.Charter on Human Rights for disabled.If you are already informed of this information please disregard.Hope it is useful,Best regards,Robin Macfarlane

    It isn’t pensioners who are being required to attend the WCA, but ESA claimants of working age.

    Thank you for your input Sir.

    As Ranald points out it will be us sick noters who face this issue not the elderly.

    Your point about the WCA test not being accepted by the BMA or indeed anyone as a valid test of incapacity
    is very valid.

    You alert us to the abysmal reputation of of UNUM in this sorry matter. Again you might be right on
    the point here as some of the ungrateful cynics on this site pointed out that the day this new testing regime was
    all announced, that was the exact day that UNUM launched on our TV screens their advertising campaign
    for health insurance (remember the contortionist woman in the cupboard and the bloke whippping the
    tablecloth away). These reprobates went on to further suggest that far from the Governments declared aims of helping disabled people to get the benefits and work opportunities that they deserve that this was the true motive
    behind it all.

    I wonder which is the truth?

    Yes Mr Fox, one does wonder. How on earth can Joe Public swallow such a cartload of horseshit? Oh, i remember. The negative campaign waged against us by the media.

    I fill in my own words for the abbreviation I.D.S & they can’t be printed here :lol:
