"The government proposes imposing penalties if disabled people do not inform the government in changes in their circumstances. However, the Department of Work and Pensions statistics give the overall fraud rate for Disability Living Allowance as being less than 0.5%. For those with fluctuating conditions asking them to report every change to their condition would prove very stressful."


  1. I'm guessing it's not the Boris from the Olga de Polga books by Michael Bond, as that one was a guinea pig.

  2. I'm glad that the figure of fraud which is so small is getting out there and being seen but also if as Boris suggests the ill have to inform on every aspect of their flucturating health conditions...the system wouldn't be able to cope with the paper work.

  3. Where is Boris today? Anything to say Boris?
