Those of us who have our fingers on the pulse of scrounging won’t find it a surprise that this week it was reported almost 1 million people were caught trying to claim sickness benefits when they were actually fit for work. This is on top of the other 1 million who made a miraculous recovery just in time to avoid a fit-for-work assessment. This blog has long highlighted how an imminent medical seems to cure the Scroungitis virus and again we are proven correct. Under the old, poorly regulated system, many of these 2 million would have spent time on IB before migrating to the even more lucrative DLA cash cow. Those days are over and it’s the turn of the enormous numbers of DLA fraudsters to get their comeuppance.
We live in great times!
God bless Atos and IDS.
