DWP Breaks its Own Rules when threatening Support Group Members

Further to my post earlier this week, today another example of the most seriously ill disabled people being told they must attend work focussed interviews or else be sanctioned; never mind this is in direct conflict with the DWP’s own guidance which states :

Support Group

If you have a condition that severely limits what you can do, you’ll be in the support group. You’ll not be expected to look for work and we won’t expect you to take place in any work-focussed interviews”.

How the DWP are going to Spin this is yet yo been seen; what I do know is this is yet another time this unelected Government has deliberately broke it’s own rules and then Lied about it!

This ongoing Discriniation against Disabled People is  Totally Unacceptable & I can only hope people say ENOUGH

It is Time to Join the Truth Campaign and Sign the Petition  to STOP The SPIN.

  1. Reblogged this on Britain Isn't Eating and commented:
    No doubt its another one of IDS’s “I believe I am right” ideas despite it being laid out in contrary, in black and white. in the DWP’s own guidelines.
    This bastard, his department, and this unelected Tory dictatorship have broken, and will continue to break, every moral, legal and official ruling until they are ousted from government.
    And only we can make sure that happens in May 2015.

  4. Thanks for the link Jayne but in fact there is only one known example/case of this and it’s the Shirebrook JC case. It’s the same case linked by DPAC in their post earlier this week. You might like to rephrase the first couple of sentences of this post…
