I was reading an interesting piece earlier about the statistics and figures re the ESA appeals and the amount of people that they (the Government)say had been removed from the benefits system.
It said that disabled claimants are being used to manipulate figures by recycling those same claimants. If large numbers were really being ‘found fit for work’ the Jobseeker’s Allowance claimant count would have gone up alarmingly which is not being claimed as the case. Maybe they have all found work
After coming off ESA claimants are being sent back on to it by Jobcentres who can see they are not ready or able to join the workforce (this actually happened to me - I was told to appeal by a member of the jobcentre).
So this is a continual merry-go-round for the sick and disabled to ride on. A very expensive ride too, what with all of the appeals and tribunals that are having to be paid for.
