How the UK government colluded with corporate America on the destruction of the benefit system

Mansel Aylward.

This Site’s good friend Mo Stewart provides insight into the way the UK’s benefit system has been eroded by dodgy ‘experts’, disreputable ministers and an outright criminal US insurance company.

Vox Political published its own series of articles on this subject long ago.

You can find the first here.

Follow it up with this one.

You can find more information on the way the disruption of the benefit system has affected real people, at practically any point in This Site’s history. Vox Political is full of it.

It has been obvious for a long time that the majority of the national press have colluded with the UK government to successfully manipulate the British public regarding the ongoing ‘welfare reforms’, which really means welfare destruction.

Identified as the second worst insurance company in America, UnumProvident Insurance were official UK government advisers for ‘welfare claims management’ from 1994, with Mansel Aylward (pictured) as the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) Chief Medical Adviser.

Together with Aylward, the UnumProvident adviser John LoCascio co-authored an academic paper in 1995, which advised that GP medical opinion should be disregarded for disability benefit claims. This disturbing opinion was welcomed and adopted by the DWP, and opened the door for the American insurance corporate giant to influence future UK welfare reforms.

    …… and the RTU wonker grabbed this like the idiot that he was and still is. When are the thick thousands, to quote Socrates, going to wake up to what is happening with these murderers?

    Everyone, not just the disabled, needs economic rights to match their political rights.

    Advising the United Kingdom government on claims since 1994, Unum has been involved with the UK’s controversial Welfare Reform Bill. Unum was investigated by the BBC in England and were described by critics as a ‘rogue firm.’
