Yes, I`ll bet they are....and looking for holes in it so they can appeal it no doubt. Well done to the group who took on this challenge. Warriors, all of them. The message here is, USE the LAW when you need to because the judiciary won`t stand to have their rule of law broken or tarnished.

...quite cod and I wonder how many of those who couldn't get their appeal together within the allotted time will now be gathering up their evidence to land on the DWP's mat anytime, well erm no rush now eh so they can even make a better case and success rate might go up as a result. Not to mention those who will feel more confident of making a claim in the first place. Oh dearie me those precious targets don't look too safe now do they. That I feel is the real motivation for this judgment following the FOI request revealing the arrogance of 80%. You work statistics out which is of course necessary in government but to openly manipulate them when it is a matter of legal justice relating to a person's life and how it impacts on wider family - well maybe it has finally caught up with them. If DWP are going to challenge that judgment they don't have much time regardless of whether there isn't a legal limit because the ball is effectively already rolling. This could be the biggest rush of brown envelopes since records began. Post Office might have to take on extra staff and govt might need to also.

Absolutely priceless.

I wonder though if they will still say to people in any `fit for work` decisions that they only have `One Month` to request a Mandatory Reconsideration, or if they will amend this wording as, "please request a Mandatory Reconsideration within 12 months"? Take your time, have a cuppa on us.....

I would much rather MR`s were scrapped and people had the choice to go straight to appeal because MR`s mostly are never changed and can take two/three/four weeks, sometimes longer to do and that means no income unless you MUST claim JSA or UC. :sick:
