This Site cannot keep up with the number of stories like that of Peter Dixon, appearing in the local news media – but never the national press, TV or radio, have you noticed that?

A father-of-four who claims to suffer daily epileptic seizures says he has contemplated taking his own life after being told by the government that is he is fit to work.

Peter Dixon, 52, who also suffers from bowel disorders, arthritis, anxiety and depression, vehemently believes he should receive Employment Support Allowance (support group), giving him a weekly income of up to £109.65.

However, following a work capability assessment it has been decided that Mr Dixon is able to work, and is only entitled to Jobseekers’ Support Allowance of £73.10 a week.

“I have actually thought about suicide. I was going to leave a letter saying, ‘Sorry. Bye.’ It’s only the thought of my kids, and my parents who are in their 70s that has stopped me.”
