Can you imagine the queues outside the joke centre while they line people up to test probably randomly when it's pissing down with rain or snow would be a great idea as far as dwp are concerned;whoops!! given then ideas. :evil:

Now the joke centre can add breathalysers to their clip boards as another tool to "help people back into work." :lol:

Bit by Bit our Social Security is being chapped to bits So that the Rich can have bigger and bigger Tax cuts on their ill-gotten gains;
Drug testing the poor I guess is just the start; with worse to come.

TW35, just to pick up on your asking about CBD Oil (something I had not heard of personally but will be looking it up!) I wondered if it would be a watered down version of a drug that in the UK is banned, so if H& B are selling some kind of substitute oil containing it, then it will have passed some kind of licencing act. But I wonder whether it`s potency will be of any benefit if it isn`t a prescribed substance, meaning, a lot of these over the counter medications can be trial and error and some can be a pricey lottery.

I was prescribed capsaicin 0.075%w/w cream by a pain clinic that is prescription only and is derived from chilly peppers. umber one, I can`t reach my upper back easily where I get the tingly/itching from nerve issues in my neck, so it`s impossible to apply the stuff and this cream (to me) is no good anyway as it`s prescribed for people who have/had shingles. So once again, consultants throwing things at patients without an actual diagnosis. Utterly ridiculous and in my view, irresponsible. It`s no wonder the NHS is losing money.

Friend of mine is using CBD oil from H+B for fibro and arthritus and it's helped with getting a good nights sleep. Ive been trying for a couple of days and it's done nothing for me. Is weak but dont want to be buying some dodgy stuff of ebay. Will have to see how it goes. Thing with chronic pain you are always looking for that miracle cure and i'd try anything.

I think it`s frustrating too that some people find relief from prescribed drugs while others don`t. Like you TW, I`m willing to try anything within reason. My GP prescribed me Celecoxib capsules a few months ago and I`d never heard of them. The pharmacist even drew me a blank stare when I took the script in to be processed. My suspicions crept in and I done the usual google search only to find that one of the first links/websites to appear was Cancer Research! :unsure: And yes, this drug is prescribed for cancer patients but is touted as an anti inflammatory. So think Ibuprofen but on another planet. Wrecks the stomach and can cause all sorts of trouble. Needless to say, the 30 pills I have are still in their box.

Good Find there echidna;
Looks to me Australia is an awful place to live Unless you are Rich. :angry:

Looking at the "Results" Map Areas of High unemployment & Poverty, Like here in Liverpool voted NO;
While in rich Affluent home owning areas riddled with Tory Scum the vote was Yes,
Speakes Volumes!

Only if DWP and JC+ staff are also subject to that great idea. :)
