DWP probe into death of their victim Stephen Smith insists department ‘followed policy’

Stop UK lies & corruption

An investigation into the treatment of six-stone Stephen Smith – who was wrongly denied benefits before his death – has shockingly found that the DWP ‘followed policy’.

The 64-year-old Liverpool man was repeatedly and incorrectly turned down for benefits while suffering with a number of serious illnesses before his death.

Following his death – the ECHO published two doctors notes that had warned the DWP that Mr Smith was not fit for work, but were ignored.

This is precisely why we need a fully independent public inquiry into all preventable DWP deaths.  Someone needs to answer for all these deaths.

Sign the petition, keep sharing it and tell everyone to sign it.

AATIP was headed by Luis Elizondo who subsequently has been trying to educate the public about the reality of UFOs, and he is not alone.  Christopher Mellon, a former United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence (and later for Security and Information Operations) and also a former Staff Director of the United States Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, stated this recently on the subject:

“We know that UFOs exist. This is no longer…

Letter to Frank Field on the issue of Due Consideration given to Mandatory Reconsideration.

Diary of an SAH Stroke Survivor

Following on from my wordpress post here:


I have written to Frank Field MP the Works and Pensions Committee chair hoping he will take action on the issue of due consideration not given to many Mandatory Reconsiderations as all it does is cause needless cost to HMCTS by forcing claimants into appeals in the hope they will back down and drop there rightful claims as well as needless stress, worry and anxiety to claimants

Thankfully although they tried this on me they quickly backed out of an appeal with HMCTS as by then they decided to give my Mandatory Reconsideration the due consideration it was due but it took me to lodge my appeal with HMCTS to get them to do this and I had given HMCTS no more information/evidence that I had already given to DWP, indeed my grounds for appeal was a copy and paste of the…
