MP with concerns over ATOS

Netta62 has posted this on FibroAction Community.

I think if you have a story to tell he may be the one (I live in hope that there is an MP who cares). She starts it with -

'I am not sure if I am allowed to post this, my appoligies if am not but I have copy and pasted this from the facebook group ATOS miracles

Some one cares, someone wants to help! Share your stories.

This MP has written this to us.> wrote:

Many thanks for contacting me

It is my intention to build up a dossier of ATOS cases which I can make use of in the future to argue for radical changes to the present unfair and incompetent system. In particular, I will be calling for a full Parliamentary debate on ATOS through the procedure of the Backbench Business Committee (likely to be in January 2013) and I am also seeking a meeting with the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Iain Duncan Smith MP.

The more of you who email him with personal stories the greater the weight of argument. Many of you have told us, now tell him '

That is it word for word as posted

Kindest regards

Yes Michael is compiling a list of cases against Atos but you must remember they are doing the DWP's dirty work. They have a contract a mile long and are being used as the scapegoats for the DWP. Their tick box Lima software dnly has TES NO boxes and no way gives a true and accurate pictue of a person's ability to cope on a daily basis. The DWP has admitted this welfare reform is purrely a cost cutting exercise.

I could write at length on this subjecy but will spare you!

Suffice to say there are many of us campaigning against the cuts to all disabled people, their carers and families. This government will never listen because it does not care one iota. But we fight on.

Hi Pat

Yes I don't believe that any one can be so heartless let alone one government, how can they got this through without a majority being being against it. I do agree it is the DWP who have been let off but Who Has The Last Say? and Who Devised the Questionnaire?

My Mind boggles when I read the stories of the people who have been told they are able to work with some help.

There is a man who lost an arm and leg is blind in one eye and has a balance problem (after a car accident) and he has been told he can work with help. How? What can he do? Who will employ him?

I think this has to be the most inhuman, immoral actions any government has taken against its own people.

Just unbelievable.

Kindest regards
