Can anyone think of a single rational explanation for the plan to renew the contracts for Atos and Capita to carry out assessments of sickness and disability benefit claims?
Between them, over the last two years, these firms deliberately falsified around 7,300 claims in order to deny disabled people vital payments, forcing them towards poverty and the worsening of their conditions.
Who knows how many of these people have been induced to end their own lives as a result of this discrimination?
But instead of penalising the perpetrators by removing their contracts, the Tories are planning to pay them more than £1 billion to continue their persecution for three more years after their current contract runs out in 2021.
Who knows how many more claims they’ll be able to falsify, doctor or otherwise fake in that time? How many deserving people they’ll drive to poverty? How many will die?

Remember that French Atos were deemed incompetent and were supposed to have relinquished their contract?
That is why the already controvertial US firm Maximus came onto the scene (changing their name soon afterwards).
Atos were not only re-instated but got lucrative IT contracts with the Inland Revenue and the Pensions Service and Maximus took over Remploy with the attached Jobclub contracts, serious tax avoidance accusations followed.
No, nothing suspicious about that at all…….
They only following orders government guide lines which is culling the stock through benefits denial aktion T4. Rolling along. Yet now we have a virus to cull sum more but atos crapita maximus are just following their orders yet one asks how much do these contracters give Tory party how many jobs are made up for these MPs and their mates and whot hedge fund owns these companies and who sits on the boards of said companies you be surprised and open up traitors gate for them would b to much for these creatures
Only when it’s found they falsified ALL the assessments MIGHT the toerags think about looking elsewhere…But there’ll be no need to by then – because they’ll have killed the sick & disabled, ergo, there’ll be nobody left TO test.
I’ll bet they’ve got their fingers crossed that Covid19’s gonna do a lot of their dirty work for them, the reptiles.
