the void

g4s-workfareWelfare-to-work thieves G4S will be holding their AGM in Central London on June 6th. Join the protest outside, supported by Boycott Workfare.

From the Stop G4S website:

The last twelve months have seen G4S voted third ‘Worst Company of the Year’ in the global Public Eye awards, they also face a UK parliamentary inquiry into their disastrous handling of an asylum housing contract and will soon give evidence at the inquest into the death of Jimmy Mubenga who died while being restrained by G4S staff.

Same Difference

A ONE-ARMED man trying to claim disability benefits said staff asked if he thought his limb might grow back.

Gary Swift, whose right limb is missing from below the elbow, says he faced the question while being medically assessed.

He had applied for an employment and support allowance — paid to people who can’t work through disability — and went to the meeting with his carer mum Tracey Perkins.

They say the interviewer asked: “Do you expect your condition to improve? Do you expect your arm to grow back within the next two years.”

Gary, 30, of Chesterfield, Derbys, said: “I replied, ‘Well it’s not grown back in the last 30 years, so I can’t see it happening over the next two’.”

ATOS Healthcare, who assessed Gary for the Department for Work and Pensions, said last night: “That question would never be asked. Staff carrying out the assessment are trained…
