It's easier for the government to punish honest, genuine people in need than to do the work needed to ferret out the abusers of the system.

This is just another cop out by the government to the most vulnerable in society...They should be looking at themselves and the high up's in society who rob us blind with deceit and mostly get away with it...

It’s difficult to put into words how it totally drains me both physically and mentally trying to put into words what claiming ESA means to me. My neurologists and GP all agree that with my MS symptoms there is no way I can hold down a job even if I could successfully get one, even so I am bricking myself having spent five weeks filling out the ESA50 form waiting to see if I have been successful. Given the horror stories you hear how ATOS/DWP are treating deserving cases and how many are...

Know I find I will have to go over it all again next year when DLA moves to PIP. There must be a way to sift out the cheats without putting the unfortunates through all this stress.
Time and time again I have been told – “avoid stressful situations”
I so hate claiming and living off the state but what choice do you have when the most precious commodity of all “HEALTH” lets you down.

Had mine stopped as was deemed that had nothing wrong with me. Since then i have been in hospital with CPC (Pneumonia) forced to find work, when even job centre wonder what i am doing there. Don't get me wrong, I want to work, always have done. They need to realise that not everyone falls into need little brackets. System is wrong.

my brother has MS and very little mobility, his car is his lifeline, and gets him out the house, if he didn't get DLA he wouldnt be able 2 do this, the people who are really in need should not be made 2 suffer

Thanks Tracy Wagstaff-Tracy May, I know life is what you are dealt, we all try to put on a positive front, its a shame we all have to keep re-living the struggle we are having to claim ESA and now PIP. Hi Nicky Lockyer, glad you had ESA awarded, sorry I didn't call as promised, I wll try next week if I get a chance.

What is sickening is that the people that are effected by changing in DLA are people who are the weak and vulnerable. The voiceless. I know people who have DLA, quite rightly, who are confused, who can't fight back. It's time for us to be the voice of the voiceless.

I hope todays elections for the new Police Commissioners are the lowest in UK history. More pen pushes on a 6 figure salary. We don't need them, we didn't ask for them!!! When will the guys at number 10 learn they serve us we dont serve them???

The goverment are making cuts in the wrong places. How about some cuts in the amount of allowances they make to 'asylum seekers' and immigration payments, stop people from claiming for dependents living outside the UK and cut back on the amount of money we throw into the European money pit.

Hi Janet, it's like that here in Danmark as well and it's only asylum seekers that get help. Many try to get in on this ticket but, unlike the UK, Danmark REALLY vets applicants and if their application fails they are sent back without appeal. THAT's how to sort out immigrant asylum seekers.

I have chronic cluster headaches + SUNA headaches.... averaging 32 per day and no let up in the past 9 years... Not had a day pain free in 9 years...

The system is swamped as the DWP has got everyone off benefits and the tribunal service is overrun with cases... Yet again politicians deciding to cut the most vulnerable amongst us thinking we will roll over......BIG MISTAKE......

It's about time this "Goverment" started to realise that people in genuine needs of disability benefits are not going to keep quite anymore, the DLA makes the difference between being isolated from society or trying to live as a human being. Perhaps all the fats cats in the goverment would like to live my life and on my income for just one week, they just wouldn't survive, leave DISABLED people alone we have enough of a challenge to survive without the added stress of losing our freedom and money...............

DLA means the difference between being able to join in with the rest of society or being stuck at home isolated. All we want is to be as ordinary as able bodied people.

I understand what you are saying, there is many many people that have invisible disabilities, My father has young onset parkinsons disease (now in the advance stages). I remember one time he fell over and an old women hit and poked him with her walking stick telling him to get up and saying you drunken idiot. The fact is many people judge things they can not see. It hurts to see people suffer in such a way, just because people can't see it does not mean its not there.

What are we meant to do? how degrading to have to try and prove a disability that is already so distressing, I fear we will be treated like circus freaks.....as if things are not bad enough!!
Thankyou for understanding, it is so refreshing x
