Boris Johnson quote from #spartacusreport

"The government proposes imposing penalties if disabled people do not inform the government in changes in their circumstances. However, the Department of Work and Pensions statistics give the overall fraud rate for Disability Living Allowance as being less than 0.5%. For those with fluctuating conditions asking them to report every change to their condition would prove very stressful."

Well can we just refer them back to him, every time then, Like yourself, my EDS varies form day to day, but its in my back now, and i will never shift it, but the other bits and pieces are subject to change without notice!! Do they want us to be on the phone reporting every "Oh the knees dislocated" followed 5 mins later by "its ok, its back in now" ?
