Just musing on my latest PIP stage

I have received DWP's response to my appeal.  It arrived last Thursday but I didn't open the letter until today as I didn't want its contents to spoil the weekend :).  Was worried that it might contain a further catalogue of inaccurate interpretations that I'd have to refute!  But no, all the DWP have said is that they agree with the original decision and oppose the appeal.

The only document in the parcel that I hadn't seen before was the report from the doctor who examined me when I first claimed DLA.  Have only skimmed it - but, although he was working for the DWP, his report was very sympathetic to my disabilities which no doubt helped me get highest rate care and higher rate mobility.  Contrast this with my PIP Atos report which was biased and with half-truths and one blatant lie - though could have been even worse as I was awarded standard rate PIP daily needs and mobility.
