This further publicity push is political in that it coincides with the migration of long-term benefit claimants onto a new benefit, one that is harder to qualify for. It is all about massaging the public perception of the long term sick and cutting costs. Unfortunately all this garbage still needs to be intellectually refuted. I admire those who can give their energy to constructing rational arguments against this evil rubbish. I get too angry to be able to think about it much, but PACE is going to be used as "evidence" against claimants, I am sure.
