The independent reports that “A mandatory intensive regime for claimants with underlying problems such as mental health, drug addiction or illiteracy”

Can we start moving against this?   How the hell will low paid, low qualified job centre staff willing to collaborate with the nastiness demonstrated by IDS Osborne and others deal with mental health and addiction issues with sensitivity?   What right, qualification, or remit do the DWP and Treasury have to override GPs, Health Service and specialist charities expertise. The current WCA /ESA scheme is already making people more ill.  How the hell will being bullied by unqualified staff help someone be cured? Coming days after Cameron and Pickles deeply insensitive comments what is next public shaming of ESA claimants with mental health of addiction issues?
