A man with multiple debilitating illnesses and whose weight plummeted to six stone was denied benefits and deemed fit for work, despite the fact that he could barely walk.

 

He was told to sign on to receive a £67 a week jobseeker’s allowance, visit the jobcentre once a week and prove he was looking for work.

That is an absolute disgrace @tradertall it made me really upset how this poor man was made to suffer. Have they no commonsense whatsoever? That would not have helped him at all.
