Insult to Injury: UK’s disabled must ‘prove’ handicaps to get benefits
25 April 2013
Life as a disabled person in Britain could soon become a lot harder. They’re now being asked to prove, face to face, that they deserve the help that until recently had been taken for granted.

Woman dies after benefits cut off – but Tory calls for new attacks
Annette Francis was one of thousands of people owed hundreds of pounds in benefits.
She had depression and a personality disorder, but was deprived of the benefit for six months.
She took an overdose and died after writing a “cry for help” on her Facebook page, an inquest heard last week.
She had specifically mentioned her struggle to survive on the breadline as a result of her benefit payments being delayed.
Her family are said to be distraught including her 11 year old son Kieron.
Now there are fears the DLA to PIP backlog could be going the same way.
He wants to restrict benefits to the first two children in each family and move the welfare cap down to £18,000 a year.
This is far too little for families to survive in London’s overheating housing market.
Duncan Smith boasts that his attacks on the vulnerable helped boost the economy by making more people look for jobs.
But this is nonsense—at no point in the recession was there a shortage of workers.
What he has done is helped employers drive wages down.
Labour’s shadow work and pensions secretary Rachel Reeves did attack Duncan Smith’s record.
But she did so by playing up the issue of benefit fraud rather than standing up to the scapegoating of people in poverty.
