    Reading that I feel ashamed that the government allow him to get benefits whilst REAL disabled people are being refused.
    You can inform your friend that the assessors car will be his own that he will tax and insure himself, exactly the same as district nurses/ midwives. They just have a petrol mileage allowance. “ and why not”
    im sorry to say this but I think it’s about time your friend stopped scrounging off the state and got proper help. 
    The government should allow him food/ elec/ gas vouchers instead. That way he won’t have money to drink

    drugs addicts drunks all get extra benefits because of their condition not that i agree with it??as to insurance he is correct  most will not be insured for work purposes  that's a fact and local health employed will have the cover private companies won't as per bailiffs using own transport

    plus addicts be it drink or drugs are ill  there are a lot claiming mental illness when in fact they are just using it to get benefits as are people who claim cant walk hence cars   and that's why i think gov have taken the stance on benefits and getting rid of those people but capita and Atos going al out to hurt us all

    @maid08 your mate is bringing his own illnesses to himself ,he has a choice  to get help in rehab and get better, others who have no choice in getting better because of their disability. And I strongly agree with @lillybelle.

    have said this for years re addicts drunks but the gov do not see it that way i do not drink so can't se how it would affect in the long term nor have i taken drugs? i have had a total  breakdown  so can comment on some aspects of claims of mental stress  which a lot i find is used for benefits when in fact  its self-pity and could be sorted fairly easy i do a lot for homeless people sometimes the result of gov cuts  but even that is not just down to gov ?? i see peaple on benifit asking for help to decorate buy furniture  and other items yet have mobility cars  and think a lot think they are entitled but they are not as to rehab  were how when as with adicts were how when??

    Do agree i thinl the govenment should read these posts.
    They should listen to what the public thinl about drug adicts and drunks

    Theres always a group of them at our shops. Its imposible to buy anythink without them asking for what ever youv bough.

    ohhh yes  i think its a lifestyle choice  we see lots homeless people who are  not drinkers drug takers  although we help them all   most seem to think their behaviour is normal  but only because its allowed and if i am true we aid by helping them they sell things we give them to get drink or drugs  i actualy think i am mean in that i think we should let them starve instead helping but i have always ben against gov helping them with extra cash to buy drink per day?BUT It WILL NOT CHANGE gen cases are easier to punish
