  1. It never ends, does it.

    Doctors already (by and large IME) don’t like signing people off. This is typical tory propaganda. Trying to make something that’s existing policy sound like their work fixing the last lot’s mess (even though it was teh tories that put everyone on the sick the last time they caused mass unemployment). Nothing new to see hear.

    Though I detest this ‘purposeful work’ nonsense. I don’t need to be given a crap soul destroying job to have purpose in my life; i have my own interests, thoughts and feelings. I don’t need some nasty crew of millionaires trying to programme me with some puritan quasi religious guff. It saddens me to hear people talke about their lives being empty because they have’t got a job; read, learn, think, write, create!

    But i guess our tesco sponsored corporate military industrial complex doesn’t want thinkers, it wants trained monkeys.

  2. Couldn’t agree more Wishface. The Protestant Work Ethic is a dinosaur. I have absolutly no trouble at all filling my days with purposeful activity (exclude from that the mandatory jobsearch crap). So long as there are more people than jobs this will continue. GP’s might like to pause for a moment and think what the Health Service will be like when the sort of companies and people involved as pimps in the WP are running the new privatised NHS. Emma Harrison as Health overlord? Doesn’t bear thinking about! Or maybe there’s a germ of an idea here for a sitcom????

  3. Hi there,
    I’m a film producer, working with journalist Jon Ronson, and we’re interested in finding out whether your website was recently shut down, along with various other welfare rights websites.

    Very best wishes,

  4. This is to stop people running to their GPs and getting back up. Every door is being slammed shut to the unemployed….you cant run and you cant hide. Ive only been on the work programme for the last two weeks and already Im suffering illness due to it! Im no stranger to working my backside off and I do seek work every single week so Im no loafer and Im not happy on benefits. I want a paid job. So pay me.

  6. i tried to get my gp to sign me off all i got was the government line and she refused despite knowing i have anxiety and depression long term.a lecture how i wouldn’t get past one of their doctors.this has ended in a complete breakdown of doctor patient relationship.

    trying to change doctors surgeries isn’t easy either they work on practice areas and wont take people on and has proved unsuccessful.i don’t want to see her again yet these work program companies are the first to ask have you got a gp.

    its disintegrated into little more then a one sided nazi style system and little more with a total disregard for well being that makes people worse rather then better.
