Repeat a lie often enough, and people will believe it. That’s what the Tories think.
But it’s quite difficult when we’re being told that this has healed:
Tommy Weir’s leg was amputated due to a bone infection which led to life-threatening sepsis.
But – no worries! – the DWP told him that the amputation was just a wound on his left foot.
Not only that, but the report claimed it had “completely healed” – and cut his Personal Independence Payment.
Weirdly, a spokesperson for Independent Assessment Services Ltd (formerly Atos), said: “We understand this was an error and would like to apologise to Mr Weir, as the wording should have read that his wound had healed.”
Can anyone explain this? His wound was the amputation of his foot. It was never going to heal!
Oh, and the Department for Work and Pensions itself said Mr Weir had asked for a reconsideration and it would contact him as soon as it had reconsidered his case.
But in the meantime, he has lost Personal Independence Payments worth £479 per month.
That’s why he wants to be leader of the Conservative Party (and prime minister as well) – for his own gain, not yours.
