  1. Sorry to post this here, as it is probably the wrong place and I am sure you know already, but Michael Meacher seems to want people to contact him as part of a campaign against Atos.

    The article here gives the details:


    Quote from Mr Meacher:

    “There are thousands of people being told wrongly that they are able to work. The Government have admitted that 11,000 people forced on to work-related activity after assessments have died before getting work.

    “I am trying to gather all the cases I can, because this is a massive injustice. I am prepared to campaign for months or years until this is addressed properly.”

    He also has his own blog:


    which gives his contact details:
