Atos and my Incapacity Benefit

Filed under: Politics — by alterknitive @ 4:55 pm

Just a quick post to say that I returned my ATOS form last week (the deadline was on 6th March).  I made myself out to be a complete nut job, which Stewart agreed with.  He said I should have referred to myself in the third person!  However, filling in the form, describing my problems, etc., was a difficult and tiring endeavour, and it has put me into a depression trough again 😦  I wonder how quickly they’ll send me an appointment for my interview.  While they are declaring the severely disabled fit for work and taking away their benefits, I wonder what will happen to me?

Oh yes, I am a feminist!  How can anyone who identifies themselves as female in this day and age not be?

So here’s a couple of links I found which other wimmin and grrls might find interesting:
