Life threatening illness that allows the avoiding of work and claiming of ESA handouts; “I can’t sit down for any length of time else my piles will explode. I can’t stand up for long periods else my piles will explode. I can’t use a telephone for long periods else my piles will explode. I can’t “…….etc,etc.
Exaggerated statements favoured by welfare terrorists when arguing against any reform to sickness benefits. Most common are the terms “Nazi, death camps, disabled hater” and “evil” while unproven references to Atos and the government (they actually mean the Tories) being responsible for the deaths of the disabled are also in abundance.
The easily claimed forerunner of ESA. Traditionally, huge numbers of IB claimants suffered from difficult- to-diagnose “bad back” syndromes. This has been replaced by ESA, claimed by huge numbers suffering from difficult- to-diagnose “mental health” syndromes.
JSA (Jobseekers Allowance)
The benefit many of those found fit for work after assessment should naturally migrate to. Remarkably, large numbers of former ESA claimants fail to do so suggesting they either don’t need the money or have never been interested in finding work.
