‘Entrepre…’ what?


I work hard all week, 48 hours at my place of work, 44 paid hours hard graft.


A reasonably well paid job, though I want, as we all do as, the ‘entrepreneurs’ do and my employer does, we want more.


Why then, is it that the entrepreneur and the employer are seen as good businessmen when they increase their income while the employee, the creator of their wealth is so greedy when they ask for more?


A question I have long asked myself; a question which is rhetorical; because I know and we should all know the answer; because these people are greedy beyond their needs; because a capitalist system drives their greed to the detriment of the majority.

Cameron a Christian???

This information needs to be shared widely so people are made aware of them, and can use them when claiming ESA or appealing.

These very helpful ideas are:

  •  Reliably, repeatedly and safely
  •  Exceptional circumstances – Regulations 25 and 31, 29 and 35
  •  Atos assessments and pitfalls – how they try to deceive you

1. Reliably, repeatedly and safely. 

‘Lord’ Fraud made this statement in the House of Lords:

“It must be possible for all the descriptors to be completed reliably, repeatedly and safely, otherwise the individual is considered unable to complete the activity.”
