Left Outside

ATOS, Actually TOSsers

This beggars belief…

From the local press, so usual caveats apply, but this story really is astonishing. I’ll quote the important parts below.

Wheelchair users have to climb a flight of chairs to prove they are disabled enough to get benefits at a centre in Croydon.

Although there are lifts in the disability benefits assessment centre, anyone in a wheelchair or who cannot climb stairs is banned from using them due to health and safety requirements.

Anyone who cannot tackle the 42-step staircase is instead forces to make a 14 mile round trip to Balham because the centre in Cherry Orchard Road is not disabled friendly.

The local Tory MP called it “ridiculous” in a letter to Chris Grayling.

This is grist to the mill for those who think that the Tories are 1) evil and 2) not actually any good at running a government any more.

Left Outside is always worth a read for passionate, and frequently irreverent, analysis and comment.

Oi! Enough of the cheek!

Left Outside is, I think, entirely wrong

This might be the least well informed piece I’ve read on LC, which is quite an accolade.
