Terminally-ill woman called for reassessment by DWP – as she hasn’t died quickly enough?

Krissy Johnson.

The letter Krissy Johnson received from the DWP stated, “One of our health professionals has looked at the information you sent to the DWP.

“After doing this we have decided that we need to see you for a face-to-face consultation to discuss you health condition or disability further.”

Ms Johnson said it was the third time she had been called to attend a review, where she would have to prove her condition was terminal.

There can be only one conclusion: The DWP wants to know why she isn’t dead yet.

What a disgusting, degrading way to treat a person in the last stages of her life, who deserves to pass away with dignity, rather than being plagued with endless nagging from government lackeys who are desperate for a benefit saving.

That’s all they want – an opportunity to cut off this woman’s benefits.

They might even be persuading themselves they’d be doing her a favour if they did, as forcing her into starvation and homelessness will no doubt help her on her way.

Think about the barbarity of the Conservative government’s attitude.

Then consider what you can do to ensure the Tories are removed from office and never again allowed to blight the lives of your loved ones.

John McDonnell once described Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey as a “stain of inhumanity”. That goes for the whole Conservative government.

A woman diagnosed with terminal cancer has been called to a ‘consultation’ to assess her capability to work.

Krissy Johnson from Clitheroe was diagnosed with incurable metastatic Breast Cancer in September 2015.

Nearly three years later, the 48-year-old has been called to a meeting by the Department for Work and Pensions to determine if she is capable of returning to work.

    A DS1500 Report for the terminally ill should stop this abuse but it no longer does as a medical professional opinion no longer counts

    Rt Hon John McDonnell MP was right to call Work and Pensions Secretary Esther McVey as a “stain of inhumanity”. That goes for the whole Conservative government.
    it’s a true statement as outlined on the facebook page remember the dead

    the trouble is mike the public don’t know of these things weather by choice or just playing the fool or just not educated as it is after all not a pleasant thing to have admit to either yourself or family

    at least my daughter at 25 understands very well the situation and is off to Australia to find hopefully a much better quality of life in which that goverment wont’s her where as this goverment as she puts it is dreadful from top to bottom

    It wasn’t so long ago that the Human Rights Committee had found the DWP ”guilty of violating the sick and disabled people and were breaking the Law

    The ‘conservative and coalition governments’ have literally got away with ‘murder’ beavering incessantly away behind their ‘perpetual main-stream-media supported smokescreens’ whilst ‘unsuspecting’ elements of joe public enthuse on the moral righteousness of austerity where ‘we are all in it together’ to clear that ‘terrible deficit that threatened to destroy us all’! Don’t mention the ‘national debt’!!!

    Yes, Nick, the public simply does not get that we are ruled by soulless bots. We have to keep telling them. That is why my NHS session on The Sovietisation of the NHS by targets is a key event at the Sheffield Festival of Debate on April 25th.
    We need our UK citizens to get mad. Enough of this KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON crap.
