    Possible good news.

    However, I was more than a little worried when I read the article though as it says it's part of their plan to get a million more disabled people in work. That rings alarm bells of further cuts and changes for people on ESA and more people being found fit for work or pressured into work.

    It says they want them in work by 2027, ironically, by that year there will most likely be a lot less jobs due to technology advances.

    I really don't think that the government understand that there are a great many disabilities, both physical and mental, that make it impossible for a person to work even if jobs were available.

    Seems odd that they are prepared to give disabled people up to £57K a year for the extra costs when working when the DWP does everything to stop you getting up to £9776 a year on ESA!
