Having been refused pip because of an assessment that contained nothing but lies I had hoped and been assured that the staff at positive east would help me out. One of the workers called the DWP on my behalf to request that they hold the reconsideration of my claim until my doctors letter arrived. They agreed over the phone but went ahead anyway and decided I could do everything with no problem. I had an appointment with the PE benefit advisor but got nowhere as he was running late and didnt understand why I was complaining or needed benefits. It proved that even people who should understand can sometimes make judgements based on appearence. So i'll have to go to a tribunal without any representation. I've done this before and it was a disaster but I have no choice. If I lose I starve. I have no way to get to a food bank so I was referred to the food chain but they will only provide 6 food parcels, and after that ? The state no longer provides a bus pass or blue badge or council tax discounts and if I'm sanctioned for not complying with JSA I should starve to death in maybe a week? Perhaps the kindest thing any charity could provide is a helium tent to ease the passing. It's funny in a way that the dystopian stories like brave new world and Logan's run were written as a warning but are being used as a model.
