atos accused of misleading govt

All about money
http://www.theguardian.com/society/2014 ... k-disabled

i am laughing myself sick so often these days i am losing my gag reflex.
Are ATOS now being used as the scapegoat for this monumental failure of policy?!?!
No sympathy for Atos, Capita etc. - they were more than happy to perniciously 'assess' and take their 30 pieces of silver. As for this government...a bunch of *******

The campaigners must take a huge amount of the credit for achieving this decisive result. Sadly that won't help the hundreds of thousands of people whose lives have been disrupted or put on hold in the interim. But it will help many more people in future.

Atos is quitting its contract to assess whether benefit claimants in Britain are fit to work, ministers have said.

It follows government criticism over "significant quality failures".

Disabilities Minister Mike Penning said a new company would be appointed in early 2015, and Atos would not receive "a single penny of compensation".

I feel that that is a suitable cause for celebration.

And let us not forget those who've had their lives ruined (like me and Mrs Sprinter) and those who have taken their own life over it.
You think so??? HIC..!! - oops too much champagne..! lol Image
I agree Scally, the ancient doctor from ATOS who came to see me in connection with my own DLA claim was clearly only interested in getting his visits done and the money in his account asap. He even said that the Waitrose disabled car park was 300 yards from the shop - in fact it's so close it's no more than 48 inches!!! It took me months to sort that one out. So I too am glad that ATOS has gone. However, are their replacements going to be any better?!?!
