Comment

@Laura Smith I for one applaud some of the work ATOS did, just some, in that some of the malingerer's were told they were fit, and that they needed to work. There are plenty of those who deserve my support and get the help for appeals they deserve when wrongly penalised. However the ones who are playing the system, and seem fine almost all year, except when it is time for their new 'Sick Note', certainly do not deserve free reports enabling them to remain supported by the state, while others in similar positions work hard for their money.
