The people who do the interview at atos are trained disability nurses who have been given a few days of training, what to look for and questions to ask! In my experience with them they haven't got a clue but just be honest if you aren't telling lies and you have medical evidence then you will be fine. There has been so many ****ty stories from people who have had benefits stopped due to being able to work, it was about time people are getting caught for fraudulant claims. Me and my wife work and we have 100 left at the end of the month to live on, then theres drug addicts, alcoholics getting nearly 1500 pound per month, it stinks!! Send all lying claimants to jail and make them work on the chain gang.Then make them pay it back
