TOPIC: MP got back to me...

MP got back to me... 7 years 11 months ago #66493

after three weeks his advice to me is 'appeal' gee thanks for the help :(
comment about the money is the same and I just have to go to the jobcentre and maybe do training etc :(
I very politly told him I had appealed and then pointed out I am too sick and disabled to get to the jobcentre without extreme pain and distress and as my benefits are because of the contributions I'd been making since I was 15 untill this stupid illness took my future away... and my husband works full time... that my benefit would stop after 12 months.
I doubt I will get a reply :(
so depressing... I voted for him :blink:

Hi Linda

I am so sorry to hear this.

That's a poor response from your MP. Usually they will write to the minister responsible asking for a reponse, he doesnt seem to have even done this, especially as you had appealed. Even MP's have bosses however, so you could consider going higher up the political ladder.

Its not possible to give specific advice about your claim, as we dont have full background and details, you could consider contacting an advice centre such a a Citizens Advice Centre for more help.

Regards

Michael

I emailed my MP, got a standard reply.
I've given up on him, he's to busy riding the gravy train! :ohmy:

I've made a conscious decision not to vote ever again, I don't want to encourage them! :laugh:

There's no justice, just us. :angry:

The house of commons could be the next step and the telephone number is 020 7219 3000 this will connect you to the switchboard. It is disgraceful how you have been replied to. I can only say how grateful i was to my MP he basically got me into disabled adapted accomodation when everyone else closed the door on me. Within 3 weeks of contacting my MP i was in the process of moving, sadly not all MP's are the same!!

Big hugs
Mm :) xx

I'm afraid he is a cabinet member... toeing the party line now it seems. His boss is David Cameron... hmmmm :unsure: Oh I am just soooo disapointed [sp sorry] in him. Why get a case worker to ask for my NI and address if he had no intention of even contacting dwp? :(
calling the switchboard is a no go for me... getting a co-herant sentance out even when talking to myself[ :silly: ] is nigh on impossible so the phone is a no no.
just so depressing
:(
