‘Why do they call it the welfare state? Is it coz it is well fair?” So said Ali G in a famous quip.
As many will confirm, there are many problems with the welfare state – whatever your views.
And many people with mental health issues would disagree with Ali G – and say it isn’t fair at all.
They have concerns that changes are too complex – and that tests to see whether they can get a job force some into employment when they cannot realistically work.
Now the hope is that a scheme set up to offer advice and guide them through the changes will help.
