The Sunday Express had an 'exclusive' about progress on the Downton film. I said very much the same as Fellows told us on Thursday.

Reading it I got a rather warm satisfied and slightly smug feeling of having scooped the national press.

Cars are usually shipped from the far east to Europe in huge bulk carriers, mostly just between two ports rather than dropping off part loads on the way, to minimise expensive port and handling charges,

I suspect Belgium, probably Antwerp, is where Mazda distribute all their cars for Europe from, left or right hand drive.

Oh that's good news. And a form asking if I'm better or worse feels doable rather than the horrendous whole application form and face to face assessment. And my spine consultant actually states that my back condition will never improve, which made me cry at the time but would be useful then.

Today the garage man will fax through my forms to motability, tomorrow they should return to him approved and once I've received an email copy of the car order form and checked they're ordering the car I want, the car will be ordered to be shipped over from Belgium. I wonder why loads of Japanese right hand drive cars are sitting waiting to be ordered in Belgium, I suppose that country has the space to store them. I didn't expect to ever feel excited about having a car, I felt really ambivalent about even applying for the PIP change of circumstances I'd never have done that if I wasn't being pushed and encouraged to by my CPN and GP respectively. I still have no idea where I will go in it, I panic at the thought of going anywhere. But I ran out of medication yesterday and I wouldn't have had I been able to get to the chemist on Saturday. The chemist should deliver them today. So that's one place I'm sure I will go.

I'm so sorry Auntie that is total pants.  :-(

The positive thing about tribunals is that in the tribunals I've attended which must be about 6, all of them had the correct result. Some people are getting DWP higher offers by phone when the DWP realise people are proceeding to tribunal. It's almost like they're embarrassed at the amount of claimants being successful at tribunal and badly need to reduce the numbers before the press can quote the figures.

You've sneaked off to Lourdes again behind the DWP's back, haven't you?! 

Just tell yourself they have targets for PIP 'fails' and it wasn't personal.  I wouldn't think the system in its present form could survive much longer anyway with so many decisions overturned at tribunal stage...

Ally you are correct that claimants are sent the pip renewal a year to 18 months before the current award ends.  If you got your award on mr or at appeal send the decision notice back with any renewal as the renewal says “are you better or worse” and dwp compare that to their original decision not the revised decision made later, just another thing to remember.

Oh well, the next form is th SSCS1 and you can get them online to print.  There are normally lies in the mr but make sure you ask for a oral hearing, I will try and get a link to the form for you.

Mandatory reconsideration decision reached.  Nothing.

And there are lies in the statement.  amazing. 

Onwards and upwards to the tribunal.  (Or maybe I am cured and have just not noticed it.)

Unless things have changed,  I was under the impression that pip claimants were sent for a year earlier than their award date ends?.  Therefore, you may be reassessed in 2021.  Hopefully, that may mean another motorbility car, as  soon as the first one has been returned.  Perhaps  MonIc, or, someone else can verify this?  I hope your new car gives you a few years of happy motoring
