I thought tribunals were supposed to be independent of the DWP. I have been waiting 12 months for my ESA tribunal and have got a date now so thought I'd better read through all the notes I have as I couldn't remember what was in them.Found something on the last page I missed before. The DWP ' respectfully request 'that the tribunal find me fit for work! I just can't believe that they are allowed to get away with that and I'm really angry that they should be allowed to have this influence over things that are supposed to be nothing to do with them. I'm now getting really stressed about it all.
