I spent this evening with a colleague who had been going through a bad time both healthwise and emotionally.
Amongst the many things we talked about was his recent PIP appeal hearing at the 1st tier Tribunal.
I let him talk away and refrained from passing on my feelings and opinion of both the MOJ, ATOS, CAPITA and the DWP.
Anyhow he asked if it was normal for three 'judges' to be on the panel?
No it is not, there can only be one judge/chair, the other two would have been maybe a GP and a disability adviser of some description.
He still insisted that they were all judges, saying they were all judging him with the answers he was giving!
He then asked why would there have been a Welfare Rights judge? Ummm, no way me thinks - not a WRO. But he insisted it was because when he went to the CAB months earlier she was there - working!
Now what do I say to that I thought - I suggested we had another cup of tea.
