As loyal readers are only too well aware, living in the Nanny state has eroded people's ability to think for themselves and has destroyed commonsense.
A particularly striking example of this was reported by The Sun, concerning Gary Swift's recent visit to ATOS Healthcare which was assessing his claim for an employment and support allowance.
Mr Swift has lost his right arm from below the elbow.
Seemingly, if the report is accurate, the interviewer asked:
“Do you expect your condition to improve?Mr Swift reportedly replied:
Do you expect your arm to grow back within the next two years.”
"Well it’s not grown back in the last 30 years, so I can’t see it happening over the next two.”ATOS Healthcare are quoted:
“That question would never be asked. Staff carrying out the assessment are trained doctors, nurses and physiotherapists.”Mr Swift claims that he was later sent on a job seekers’ gardening course, and given a spade.
The above story is quite bizarre if it is true!
In the event that this story is BS, then it serves to highlight how people's ethics have been eroded by a state that proactively seeks to take away our self responsibility for running our own lives.
