The Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) is yet again being dragged through the courts over its treatment of two benefit claimants. This time, the cases centre around the DWP’s controversial new benefit, Universal Credit.
The DWP: in the dock again

As Disability News Service (DNS) reported, the charity Child Poverty Action Group (CPAG) is representing two claimants who are taking legal action against the DWP. Known as IM and TD, their circumstances are separate. But a judge has granted both claimants judicial reviews into the DWP’s treatment of them. The High Court will hear both cases together, because both claimants have lost money due to moving onto Universal Credit.

I wonder how many other people actually deserve a judicial review as both these cases sound quite typical of how you are treated on ESA (based on my own experience). They simply can't wait to get people off that benefit regardless of their illness/disability. Too late for those already murdered by the state but if a few can win cases like this it is a start and might give disability support groups a bit more strength as up to now they seem to get largely ignored in spite of some damning cases they have put forward. Best of luck to them, I say luck as I struggle to believe in British justice these days.
