This is typical corrupt government.The DLA clearly performs a function of great value in society.as all the charities and experts have commented.The government has little intellectual capital left and to understand that this is one of the few successful benefit policies is beyond them.Clearly taking this away will simply push the cost onto the next government department at more than three times the cost.One outstanding issue with optimised benefits is that the government does not measure social costs.a rule of thumb here is a ratio of three to one.This interpreted as taking away one pound will rise costs elsewhere to the tax payer amounting to three time that amount.The expense does not disappear but may increase..very poor government.
As a general note:When you hear a politician say benefit is a 'cost' it is not! 100% of UK subjects are on benefit. Between 64 and 121% is returned to the treasury for low value benefits such as unemployment allowance,old age pension.However non optimism benefits such as high civil service pensions,tax relief on pension pots over 700k,the flat at number ten,and personal allowance are benefits that are unnecessary 'costs' on the UK balance sheet.
This is a proposed article 4 contravention taking away any compulsion would take away this problem.However the government has been warned that putting a claimant under duress to make any decision by threatening to take away their benefit is also in contravention 'duress to poverty'.this is also likely to see the largest class action against the government in the court of human rights for many years with an estimated 21.5 billion pounds of compensation claims..
If you don't vote for this your taxes will go up even more....start Britain working again.
she did not do it for the expenses row when she had portfolio..and she won't do it now even thought our political process is really broken ....if they want to imprison the disabled and unemployed when will they go?
Please make sure you seek personal legal advice from a qualified solicitor in cases involving the law.
This is illegal under employment law.The government is required to pay the minimum wage...
If they say we will take away your benefits..if you don't do this... is duress..and duress to poverty is a human right abuse for forced labor.
Beleive it or not big law firms in the city are gearing up for big claims for compensation on this under human rights legislation,along with compulsion to false imprison the public in detention centres to try to scare you off making claims.

Hi Shelly, great idea! We’ve already started this. You can get involved here: http://www.38degrees.org.uk/page/s/dont-make-more-people-homeless
The average in every council area is OK by me...a figure is pointless living in a mansion in GT Manchester with no chance of a job or a one bed flat within London with a chance of a job in two years?
The center piece of the right wing 'Abuse the poor day with the soup kitchen and human rights abuse bill!!
The trick is..it will cost the country more..and it makes no difference to your taxes!
Pointless fascist policy or loony Right!
Sounds as though this achieves nothing except putting in another layer of bureaucracy between the employer and employee at a cost of 360 billion pounds over ten years.....we have got to stop producing failure in government at our expense for negative or zero returns...it is suspected this crazey idea has been but in place by civil servants who wish to stave off unemployment.
also back door compulsory community service for no pay? What about employment legislation.If the unemployed work for free then Cameron works for free and I can arbitrary take away his benefits if he does not do what 'I' WANT..sounds like democracy has gone and police state has arrived.

We’re looking into a technical problem with the suggest a campaigns system.
Last night we merged this with another DLA campaign after being asked to by the people who had originally created the suggestions. This follows on from previous problems we had with merging campaigns.
Unfortunately last night there was a problem with the system and when we merged the campaigns thousands of votes were removed from the total.
I’m really sorry this happened. We’re looking into this and trying to sort it out.
This is not logical nor helpful the DLA is the only way disabled people can stand a hope of been part of society.Taking this away would in my view be a breach of the human rights convention.
