"This must not be allowed to happen"
The Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) has published a contract notice announcing its plans for a £3.1billion revamp of heath checks for Personal Independence Payments (PIP) and other benefits.
PIP is not ESA or even UC, having one assessment for those benefits is morally wrong to treat them as ONE size fits all with that one assessment.
Latest update 9th May 2019
The government has confirmed that it is pushing ahead with plans to test how it might be able to merge two disability benefit assessments into one, despite comments from a minister that appeared to suggest that no such plans were being discussed.
Hi @jamesg11 welcome to the community! My favourite film is Avengers Endgame
Hello @jamesg11 Thank you for sharing.
I like old films. Channel called Talking Pictures has some of them I like .
Film Noir is my favourite sort of film.
Double Emmdentity staring Fred MacMurray and Barbra Stanwyck.. The one the only original idea of beautiful woman wants her husband murdered. Get the Insurance money.
That is the plot simple and easy to follow.
Has everything twists, turns and the ending wow.
Have lots of similar ones. Touch of Evil with Charlton Heston, Orson Welles.
Forties, Fifties American films. Made to be short sweet and simple with twisting plots and sudden endings.
On the edge of your seat. Sudden Fear a new one to me the other night.
Like the stars of the era. Humphry Bogart, James Stewart. Orson Welles, Kirk Douglas.
Like Gloria Graham and Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly, others as well worth looking at.
Also my MGM musicals lots to sing and dance to . Gene Kelly and Fred Astaire just a few more.
yes!! i went two weeks ago with my kids, i loved it more than them
Hi James! The Crow. But only the Brandon Lee one. That film is so dark, beautiful and full of meaning. Also Edward Sissorhands, anything Tim Burton...except Planet of the apes. And I didn't like what he did with Alice in Wonderland, it was good, but not Lewis Carroll enough for me! XXX
Hello @jamesg11 All this talk of Science Fiction and CGI Films.
Reminds me of the time when growing up in the Sixties and Seventies used to have these awful but really terrible films.
Japan started it with the Godzilla series badly dubbed, a man in a suit and much more . Yet iconic and the rest was history.
I used to search the TV listings and set the video for any of these Films. That had either a Science Fiction line. From the period long before any of the words special effects. Was replaced by CGI.
Gentleman called Ray Harryhausen. Created some of most iconic films every made. Now considered classics.
Worth looking out for. Long before CGI.
Forty Million Miles from Venus. Earth v Flying Saucers. It Came Beneath The Sea All those days of the Fifties creating memorable films and most of them. Look at them to day .
You can admire what they were trying to do.
My favourites of his films were the stories he created around Greek legends. Always on TV. Jason and the Argonauts . Sindbad series of films as well magical.
Then I got into Film Festivals. As a collector. Used to go to Manchester, London to see these creators in Film.
I used to collect anything to do with those days of early Horror and Science fiction.
Film Lectures. Where you could hear him speak and talk how he created these films.
If it was not for this gentleman never have any of the films today. Most of his projects involved many of the filmmakers today or were inspired by him.
Seeing his films created their own films.
Hello @jamesg11 All this talk of Science Fiction and CGI Films.Reminds me of the time when growing up in the Sixties and Seventies used to have these awful but really terrible films.
I am a fibrowarrior!
