Spoor of the Bookworm

By Bookworm1962

No Pasaran!

After months of humiliation, and intimidation I got a call from ATOS a couple of weeks ago saying I did not have to come in for their "yes we know you can't walk, bend or sit up for more than half an hour at a time, you're half blind, deaf and have all but lost the use of your hands but can you pick up a paperback or watch TV?" assessment of fitness to work. Part of the Tory attack on the disabled. The relief from all the stress of the last few months has proved short lived - got a letter today telling me they'd decided I was fit to work anyway... Nye Bevan was right, in 1948, when he described them as lower than vermin. Time to take to the barricades.
