(not satire – it’s ATOS)
I might have to stop writing satire. It seems I might be giving the wrong people some very bad ideas.
Back in January I wrote a satirical blogpost about ATOS reducing their fit-for-work tests to one question:
Now it looks like ATOS have decided my blogpost was a good idea.
A partially-blind and disabled woman had her benefits stopped after she attended an interview with ATOS in which she was asked just one question.
And as a result of her one word answer to the question, the woman killed herself:
What was the single question by ATOS’s so-called ‘expert’ which trumped a lifetime of professional doctor’s opinions and supporting medical evidence?
“Did you come here by bus?“
A killer question indeed.
Someone remind me – just exactly how many millions are we as taxpayers paying these cowboys at ATOS for this kind of incompetent, dangerous nonsense?
Please feel free to comment.
