The Black Magic Roundabout of the WCA: Peter and Marie’s Stories.

leave a comment »

Its becoming plainly evident that the majority of sick people going through the government’s Work Capability Assessment have a story to tell. The account varies according to which part of the Black Magic Roundabout they are forced off or simply give up.

This article focuses on the experiences of ‘Peter’ and ‘Marie’, both of whom have encountered the part of the process whereby they fail the WCA, though obviously suffering from considerable illness or disability, appeal and win, and are then forced to go through the WCA again. And fail again. And then must appeal again. And so on and on. The phrase ‘ad nauseum’ was never more appropriate for those who have no choice but to keep going round and round on this dizzying ride.


(Hello Atos! Here’s some more evidence of what your involvement in this glorious money-spinner  is doing to sick people.)
