Wales tribunal results

Three quarters of benefit claimants in Wales who challenge the loss of their main benefit win at tribunal

The DWP states this is due to new evidence being provided at the tribunals. Yeah right.

I can't believe the BBC has actually reported on it.  I know there's the old thing whereby people on the left say the BBC's too far to the right and vice-versa, and it's pretty obvious that an organisation like the BBC that relies on state funding will want to be a bit wary of offending the government too much, but the way they've buried the news over benefits and disability is shameful.

Mind you, to cross-thread, as JLR points out, there's the royal wedding to distract us from the news.  Nevertheless the mere fact that the BBC has covered this story, and a couple of other disability cuts stories recently is encouraging.
(I'm an obsessive problem-solver, so feel free to ignore any suggestions or solutions I offer, even if they sound terribly insistent.)
