Th links you posted had /" added at the end and that was breaking the link, the reason the links worked for you is you web browser eg Chrome was loading a page it had already seen. it anticipated that was where the link was supposed to go. My browser did the same thing although for me the bad link was the first address I went to so it anticipated that I wanted to see that link. The same think might happen to anyone else who already tried the link in which case they need to copy and paste the following into their address bar

“There are nearly 14 million disabled people living in the UK, and our world-leading tech industry must ensure that it is capitalising on the spending power of their households – the Purple Pound – worth £249 billion every year," says Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work Sarah Newton.


The Government needs to remember this when it reduces the amount of disabled people getting disability benefits for two reason. Number one what is the point of making sure the technology is compatible to our needs if we cant afford it and secondly whenever the Government pays disabled people money a lot of that money is going back into the British economy.

Potential there for the regime's "Lonliness", "Integrity Initiative" and "Nudge Unit" objectives to be met via just the one attendance device?

For deployment as the ideal disability aid it would need to be fitted with an extra 'sanctimonious harangue' program by the DWP ... an ATOS/CAPITA report generator to cure all ailments ... plus surveillance and punishment mechanisms....
