DWP Resources Swiped Here For Users

UserWatch is giving you the resources for further study on the Dept of Work and Pensions's (DWP) website page ref: Welfare Reform . The Employment Support Allowance (ESA) is here and Incapacity Benefit (IB) is changing . So study the situation if need be ..We know that great anxiety is being created by Govt and we feel the way Welfare Reform has been treated, is less enabling of the Ladders-and-Bridges-to-recovery approach , and more getting rid of the workhouses (that became mental health asylums) only to create community re-isolated workarses. That's you . Its quite cruel and typically unegotiated by the new political classes who wanted welfare to die a Thatcherite death. So much for the Service Economy (globalising) approach and banking to sustain us all . We predict a new form of localism (not protectionism) will evolve though, as slowly it will become socially and economically impractical to have productive sectors the other side of the world .....

More support, higher expectations
