Court Cancelled

Well now you’ve heard it all. Lawyer called me yesterday to tell me there was no point in spending money on a disabled taxi to get to court on Monday as DWP has asked for an adjournement which will be granted! Apparently 10 months is not long enough. When .I finished crying, lawyer told me that it’s not all bad news. Apparently, judge is not best pleased with DWP so they’re on the back foot. Lawyer says they are scrabbling to hide something that they don’t want the court to see.Apparently I was at about 85% certain to get a favourable decision, but that has now gone up to 95%, but the downside is hearing will now be 6-8 weeks from Monday, and as it takes 4mths to order car because of adaptions and then another week or two to get tow bar fitted so even if the judge says yes half of another summer will have gone. Quel Suprise, they really do want us to crawl in a corner and die, I’ve got news for them, they’ve picked the wrong person. Onwards & Upwards.

@grandma, no more crying, you are such a tough cookie and have been really badly treated. But your case is so strong, and now when you have your day in court you can explain how this ongoing delay has had an impact on your condition. Keep fightin’ Grandma, you know you’re gonna 𝗪𝗶𝗻! X

Fantastic news folks, Lawyer rang me last night, he had finally received ‘the bundle’By e-mail, unheard of in 8 years he says. Apparent.y letter from ms nurse is that good and we don’t need anything else. Hes coming to ‘rehearse’ me this morning, apparently I have to play the game and present myself as a poor, downtrodden individual, have to keep my mouth shut, won’t be easy, and just answer wuestions to present myself in the worst possible light. Will let you all know Mon pm if it’s worked🤞🥊

Bloody typical of the DWP, they are likely looking for ways to try and Sanction you, lol.

When the time does finally come round, best of luck.

Thank you all so much for your good wishes. Just seen the lawyer, he has rehearsed me on what I can and can’t say, took an hour and a half, but I am paying so can’t really complain. @dominics had to look it up cos I had my suspicions and I was right!🤞😍
