I had an appointment today at 12.00 with the unemployed workers centre, they were to help me fill in the form for dla. However having a dreaded chest infection and being snowed in yet again I phoned up to cancel. It was an answer phone so I left a message and requested some one got back to me to rearrange my appointment which they did. They cannot get me in until the end of March which is past the dead line for the form to be returned," and anyway" he said" we don't do that any more, just tick the box's and send it off". I was so stunned I thanked him (for what?) and put the phone down.
