No problem Sunshine.
I am now back at work after being off sick for the past 10 weeks with Chronic Obstructive Pulminary Disorder. Complicated by reccduring chest infections.

My consultant has advised that he will ask for me to be provided with a backpack of oxygen to carry about with me!!

I will now be able to post the stuff I usually post obtained via my contacts within central/local government and the DWP.

Best wishes
AO

Hope you are "well enough" now AO; COPD is a horrible condition. >bighugs<

Hello AO

The PiP will never work until we can out-law ZERO hours that is where employers only employ people for only a few hours a week + there is no garntee of perment employment

There is a big protest in Leeds + York today 17/8/12

I didn't think that PIP had anything to do with whether you are in work or not, just like DLA at the moment.

Have I misunderstood?

By the Bule, I completely agree that zero hours contracts should be abolished.

Sadly some people like having a zero hours contract, they find it suits them.  However of course many others find it is a huge problem!
