Tweeps: two weeks ago today, I nearly lost my life due to a very serious bilateral pulmonary embolism.

I had no symptoms at all, except for tiredness & a little breathlessness, which I attributed to other causes. When you're living with chronic mental ill health & ...1/
...on a very low income due to #UniversalCredit, you get used to feeling rubbish a lot of the time. Vague symptoms like fatigue are inevitably dismissed by GPs.

Over the course of about 8 hours on that Tues, tho, I started feeling faint & very weird. 2/
I got up to use the loo & collapsed, losing consciousness. When I came round, I couldn't breathe.

Luckily, I managed to reach my phone & paramedics from @Ldn_Ambulance came within 30 minutes.

Unluckily, I couldn't get to the door & ... 3/

1/4 The #Tory government has put #disabled & chronically ill people through hell the past 10 years. The reason? To stop fraudulent benefit claims and reduce cost. The outcome? Thousands of us died and thousands more suffered humiliation, #poverty & devastating health implications
2/4 The kick in the teeth is; the benefit reforms and #DWP errors actually cost more than the original fraud. On top of this, the Tory's removed all funding for vital services that many vulnerable people in society relied upon. #ToriesOut #Tories #Health #Benefits
3/4 Austerity measures were supposed to reduce debt and save the UK from financial crisis, yet National #debt is the highest it's ever been. The #NHS is on it's last breath, and many of us fear we will not survive another 4 years of #Tory lies, neglect and abuse. #VoteLabour

Your hostile environment, @Conservatives @BorisJohnson

I’m a disabled woman with one disabled, and one poorly kid. The man from #Capita has jokes against the disabled and women and poor people on his public Facebook feed. I complained, only to be told this is allowed.

#DWP
@Conservatives @BorisJohnson You picked on the wrong claimant. This is my one benefit. Non-means tested. My one measly benefit that I qualify for because of having been ill my whole life. If you'd had more geneticists, immunologists, allergists, and nutrition training for GPs I wouldn't have been disabled.
@Conservatives @BorisJohnson Maybe you can explain why your DWP reviewed my son's ESA this week? Do you think he'll ever work? Good luck with that, Spongebob. He hasn't been off a carer's hand since he was born. He'll never work, travel, marry. Perhaps I needed reminding of it. Again. And again. And again.

#Tories Election Cock-Up Chaos so far - a continuing series :

01 - #Tories admit and apologise for a doctored, misrepresentative video of Kier Starmer. Tory MPs like @JohnnyMercerUK leave it on their feed and actively continue to spread.

02 - #Tories Boris #Johnson gets booed out of Addenbrooke Hospital by staff and patients alike, unmentioned by #BBC, who were right there.

03 - #Tories MP Jacob Rees Mogg blames #Grenfell victims for their own deaths. It takes him four days before he's forced to retract and apologise.

Could it be that I think he is a wax nosed snollygoster who faked his own CV and runs a fake 'thinktank' pushing pseudo research to further his sick ideology? #DWP killer.

In 2014, I came to the attention of the #DWP work assessments. By the time they were finished with me (when the Tribunal found in my favour), I was homeless and DWP had dragged their heels so much that they owed me £5,000 (for which I was paying eye-watering interest to my bank).
They'd spent 18 months trying (successfully) to bully me, often sending me 2 or 3 of their brown envelopes a day, claiming I owed them £12,500 (I didn't), losing my paperwork, lying, etc etc - some of you will sadly have similar stories.

Tribunal told DWP to stop harrassing me.
Even though I was 65 that year, DWP went right on harrassing me, and (obviously) took forever before they paid me the £5,000 while I went on paying interest.

I still have no home of my own (not even rented), and now never will.

I can't prove the effect on my health...

At same period the UK Authorities, banks & state owned companies all converged with their plans to take our home, our car & our money, my mother's #DWP welfare benefit was also targeted on several occasions, the worst being what happened at #Adecco #Guardian #TheTimes #GMB
My mother was seeking #employment & arranged an appointment with #OfficeAngels who she was already registered with & had worked for, for years. However, the time & date of the appointment was at a similar time to that of her sign on with the #DWP. #Jobseekersallowance #Jobseekers

Contacted by older man who was refused Tx from DLA to PIP and had his ESA stopped as deemed fit to work after medical. Diabetic. Very advanced nerve damage & severe circulatory problems. Client woke up 9 days after refusal and 2 of his toes had fallen off inside his bed socks... WARNING - This thread contains material which may not be suitable for everyone. Please exercise care.
His toes fell onto the floor. The circulation to those toes were so severely compromised, doctors had said they felt amputation would be the only option. Not that it was needed in the end as they had autoamputated...
Now working on appeal. People's lives are being SEVERELY blighted by the #DWP and this cruel and punishing Tory govt. Austerity was a choice to appeal to Tory heartlands. Many disabled and chronically ill people feel like they have a target on their back...

1.Just back from ESA appeal hearing for victim of horrific acid attack with 50% burns all over her face and body, is in constant pain and 'burning sensation', cannot move, sit or stand for long without pain and of course, there is the trauma. DWP awarded 0 points & fit for work
2. Since the attack, she's had 14 operations which have involved removing skin and bone to reconstruct parts of her face and body. The stress of the operations is significant and leave her bed-bound for weeks. Every operation makes her feel like it is a step back for that period
3. She rarely goes out and when she does it is local. To the GP, local shop or hospital appointment. Despite the compelling evidence, the healthcare professional at the work capability assessment decided that she is fit for work as none of the descriptors apply #socialsecurity

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

#Skynews #BBCNews #DailyMail #Guardian #Euronews
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Labour's Shadow Chancellor, @johnmcdonnellMP, has released a statement regarding the sickening news that single parents and families will lose £200 per month under #UniversalCredit.
His statement is in response to this.

#DWP boss Esther McVey admits millions to lose £200 a month on #UniversalCredit

McVey has been forced to admit single parents and families face a £2400 a year benefit cut next year

Just the day before this came out;

DAMNING study shows Universal Credit to blame for dramatic rise in foodbank use.

#UniversalCredit to blame for a rise in claimants experiencing debt & #mentalhealth issues

Not to mention a 52% increase in #foodbank use

💥For those calling me "fake news"
1/5

The #DWP are having to use legacy Employment and Support Allowance (ESA) for NEW claimants for a simple reason.

The High Court ruled in June it unfairly discriminated disabled claimants by removing their Severe Disability Premium (SDP)
2/5
This ruling applies to those on EITHER Personal Independence Payment (PIP) with daily living component or Disability Living Allowance (DLA) middle/high care component

If the DWP put new claimants on #UniversalCredit it would be making a two tier system for disabled claimants
3/5
They had a policy consultation until August to plan next move.

This consultation has come to the realisation it cannot put new claimants on UC as it would likely bring court action.

I was contacted by a Citizen's Advice (CAB) Manager concerned this hadn't been announced

The Adecco Arrest and Cover Up

Most organisations contain their problems, but some just look like amateurs

#Adecco #Metpolice #Lovewhatyoudo #CEO1Month #Leadership #Training
#Adecco did everything to try to avoid confirming my mother's attendance even going to the lengths of calling #MetPolice to arrest her
If someone's house gets burgled, the #metpolice haven't got the resources to turn up. However, if you request a confirmation letter at #Adecco which you require for #DWP, then @metpoliceuk are quick on the scene

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed
