WHY THE MADIA AND OPPOSITION ARE QUIET ON WELFARE REFORM CUTS

UK Uncut.

WHY THE MEDIA AND OPPOSITION ARE QUIET ON WELFARE REFORM CUTS                        Blair following Clinton and Bush Jr adopted the method of ‘non medical assessments’ for disability claimants  ,the model was designed by UNUM and the assessments are carried out by ATOS .Blair in 2006 appointed Lord Freud to provide an independent view on the Welfare to Work system .Freud called for private sector involvement in the Welfare System to help those on Incapacity Benefit and single parents back into economic activity .After his findings two UNUM employees a Doctor and an Occupational Therapist were invited to join the  Technical Working Group that carried out the review of the personal capability assessment .In 1994 Mansel Aylward was the chief Medical Officer of the DWP who designed a stringent ‘all work test’ and approved doctors were trained in UNUM’s approach to claims management . It was a Labour Government in 1999 that introduced the Welfare Reform Act .All new claimants had to attend a compulsory work focussed interview and it was Aylward who revised the test to the Personal Capability Assessment ,emphasising on not what was your entitlement but what work you were capable of .In 2009 Freud  joined the Tory party and was made a peer .UNUM in 2004 opened a £1.3 million centre for Psychosocial and Disability Research at Cardiff University Mansel Aylward was appointed Director after he retired from DWP .No wonder the Tories are so smug they are carrying on what Blair started ,that’s why Miliband ,Balls and Harman are very quiet on the subject .The Media’s hands are tied  because both Political Parties are as guilty as each other on the subject of Welfare Reform. http://www.brokenbritainundertories.com
