It is not often I bring appeal court judgments to this blog but this one is off importance to many, it was past down in the upper tier tribunal with a panel of 3 judges.
Many of us know the sheer pain in the backside exercising our lawful right in appealing a decision that we feel is manifestly wrong and goes against all principals of fairness and indeed lawfulness so imagine my surprise when I got wind of this judgment via email from benefits and work so I scurried off in search of the full judgment attached below.
The wastage in misspent public money is mind blowing and is a careless double hit to Govt because not only are they paying millions to Capita, ATOS and Maximus for this failed Work Capability Assessments with no recourse for refund if thy get it wrong but they are paying again for tribunals that never should be.
Now we hear that the Department for Works and Pensions have been actively putting up the barriers to block appeals to tribunal after already turning down a mandatory reconsideration.
I WONDER WHY
That’s easy to attempt to cover up how many decisions at tribunal are being won and cover up the failings of the contractors.
Many of us thought that was the case and now we have as proof in the upper tier tribunal win but to deny a claimants right to justice is nothing short of DISGUSTING and smacks of corruption.
