Jaynelinney on McVey’s Non-Reply to Letters about the Disability Living Allowance

It seems that the government’s reluctance to provide the public with information about its welfare policy is certainly not confined to Atos.

What comes across from this is the government’s complete contempt for the public, and its high-handed refusal to justify its action to the people, who will suffer from them the most.
