On the day when people are mobilising to protest against the appointment of Maximus to replace Atos as the principle company responsible for ensuring people can’t get sickness and disability benefits, how interesting that Johnny Void has discovered it has caused a scandal in Australia.

It seems claimants had their benefits stopped for no reason, signatures on paperwork were faked and the most marginalised claimants were parked – abandoned completely as there was no profit in helping them.

This behaviour was exposed in a documentary by ABC that you can view here.

The full article is on The Void – be warned that it features Johnny’s trademark colourful use of language.
