My MP came for coffee...hope!
« on: 25 Feb 2012 02:35PM »
My Mp dropped round for coffee just now. We talked about my situation and the problems in general. He was very much on side ( so I did restrain myself from asking why he'd voted for the blooming bill!) and says he will ring the DWP in Wrexham on Monday and suggest they look very closely at my case...

And he's taken on board all the other points that I made, that are talked about on here all the time. I'd written it all down so he's taken that with him. Including the whole thingof knowing when your review will be.

And he is going to submit a written question, the one I was going to ask as aFOI! How many people have the phrase "the medial evidence indicates the client is unlikely to return to work in the longer term" who have been put in the WRAG.

And believe me, I'm going to nag him so much! He is a lib dem, and a back bencher, but he's the only MP I have. He says other people have made these points as well...

Now I'm shaking and am going to curl up and watch the racing before I have to go to bed  >biggrin<

Good for you!  It sounds as if he actually listened to what you said and it will be interesting to see how he gets on.

Have a well earned afternoon rest  >cheerup<

People take different roads seeking fulfillment and happiness. Just because they're not on your road doesn't mean they've gotten lost.

Thanks guys, it was worth the payback! It's due to living in such a rural area so everyone knows every one!

He absolutely adamant that my situation was wrong though, so hopefully he's been encouraged to do something useful. Oh and he also said he (and implied others in the government) had been reading forums like these and were aware of the feelings and fears of us all....
