P.I.P: A Step Back and Force of Arms

Previously I wrote about my Personal Independent Payment (P.I.P) Interegation and my own results with the PIP process.  I saw a piece of news on my friend’s facebook wall about a change in P.I.P which will be good news to many people who have a lifetime condition that is severe or is likely to get worse over time such as Multiple Sclerosis—particularly if you are somehow successful in this awful, awful […]
