The single killer question from ATOS that drove a woman to suicide

Posted by Tom Pride 

Back in January I wrote a satirical blogpost about ATOS reducing their fit for work tests to one question:-

ATOS to reduce ‘fit for work’ test to one question: “Are you alive?”

Now it looks like ATOS have decided my blogpost was a good idea.

A partially-blind and disabled woman had her benefits stopped after she attended an interview with ATOS in which she was asked just one question.

And as a result of her one word answer to the question, the woman killed herself:

Bristol woman “killed herself after benefits were stopped”

What was the single question by ATOS’s so-called ‘expert’ which trumped a lifetime of professional doctor’s opinions and supporting medical evidence?

Did you come here by bus?

A killer question indeed.

.

Someone remind me – just exactly how many millions are we as taxpayers paying these cowboys at ATOS for this kind of incompetent, dangerous nonsense?
