Cruel Assessment Regime Snatches Mobility Scooters

APR 2017 Wednesday 12TH posted by Will Stone

Tens of thousands lose vital support thanks to arbitrary PIP rules
THOUSANDS of disabled people have had their adapted cars and scooters snatched away from them after being put through cruel benefit assessments, charity Motability reveals today.
MPs and campaigners are demanding action after 51,000 people had their Motability vehicles withdrawn following a personal independence payment (PIP) assessment.
The figure represents almost half — 45 per cent — of all cases reassessed under PIP since it launched in 2013.
One mother with multiple sclerosis (MS) was left without her Motability car for nearly a year based on nothing more than a PIP assessor tickling her hand with a feather.

As the TORY regime are so obsessed with cuts.

Removing peoples transport what a great idea. :evil:

Perhaps the self serving pig club would like to close the champagne subsidized bar in the house of lords and also sack the lot of them.That would save millions.

This sort of thing has been constantly being "revealed"/"discovered" for a few years now but the tories keep pushing it all to one side under the guise of it being anecdotal or not an accurate reflection of the system. How these people are not being held to account is astonishing, the courts rule against them they simply rewrite the law, people protest they ignore them it's ridiculous how they act like they are untouchable
quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
