Maximus Are The New Atos: Destroy Maximus

It’s been pointed out many times before, including by Private Eye, and by bloggers like Mr Void just how nasty Maximus is. Johnny Void here shows again just how deeply vindictive and exploitative Maximus is, seeking to profit from the misery and despair of those the government wishes to throw off benefit in order to create a demoralised, impoverished and therefore tractable working class. He also takes very good aim at ATOS’ statements that they are trying to get out of the government’s contracts for simple business reasons and concern for the welfare of their staff. He shows this to be also rubbish, intended to disguise the fact that ATOS has been embarrassed by the massive bad publicity generated by campaigners like DPAC. With ATOS withdrawing from the Work Capability Assessment, it’s high time the same tactics and spotlight was turned on Maximus.

Atos claimed they pulled out of the WCA after staff were threatened.  But this was a fucking lie.  What happened to Atos was much more toxic.  Regular and repeated protests were held outside Atos offices all around the UK, including their glitzy London headquarters.  They were hounded off social media, whilst their corporate identity was repeatedly hijacked despite a string of petty legal threats.  Other parts of their business were affected.  The Co-operative bank were successfully lobbied to end their occupational health contract with Atos.

Everywhere Atos…
