Disability Graffiti / 10 June 2012
I posted this cartoon on the Crippen Cartoon blog the other day and because I've started to get some interesting comments about it, I thought I'd share it with you on this Disability Arts on Line blog.
I'm still amazed at the number of Disabled people who don't know who Atos are. Despite most of them having gone through, or are due to go through the Government's Benefits Assessment programme.
The Assessment is, of course, being carried out by Atos. They are paid a handsome amount for doing the work and, according to a recent whistle blower's report (ex-Atos employee), are also paid a bonus for every Crip they can strike off the Benefits entitlement list.
The fact that a high percentage of Disabled people who then challenge Atos' decision are reinstated, says a lot for their credibility!
