After I failed my ESA tribunal back in May I wrote to the tribunals service asking for a statement of reasons and judges comments. After a month of waiting I phoned them only to be told that it usually took 6-8 weeks to get them sent out. Apparently they have to put my request to the judge who has to write them up ( just what the hell was he doing all through my trial - sorry, tribunal, then?) He then sends them to the tribunals service who put them into their files and will then send me a copy. And this is the age of computers when you would think things would happen a lot quicker! I really don't trust the judge as his typing all the way through was slow, he kept making mistakes and asking me to slow down as he couldn't keep up. He could write absolutely anything and nobody would know any different. Well, the 8 weeks is nearly up, but I won't hold my breath. After all this, I don't suppose I'll be able to find anything against them and now I'm starting to fill the forms in again ( more misery ) but I won't give up. I will prove that I need benefits, even if the stress finishes me off!
