A Senior Judge Has Suggested Charging The Government For Every "No-Brainer" Benefits Case It Loses In Court

"Sir Ernest Ryder, senior president of tribunals, said the quality of evidence provided by the Department for Work and Pensions is so poor it would be “wholly inadmissible” in any other court. "

"In an extraordinary outburst against what he said was the incompetence of the department, he said he and his fellow judges were so incensed by the volume of cases where there was “no justiciable defence to the appeal” that they were considering sending them back – or charging the DWP for the cases it loses."

It's about Time!,
I have not always seen eye-to-eye with judges in the past,
but they have it right this time, High time the DWP were brought to account
for there murderous actions.

Lets hope they follow through with this because many claimants are dragged through what is essentially a court just because they are ill and are required to justify their (already) good evidence to a judge and a GP and sometimes a disability panel expert for PIP appeals. It`s not enough that they have submitted up to date evidence to prove their point. This whole assessments by private (paid) companies is what is wrong and yet again, tax payers money wasted on an excersize that GP`s and consultants should be doing, NOT the DWP.
