Not alowed drive and took 3hrs get ofice by public transport. When there flite steps enter building, ladies loo 1st floor no lift and I not able cary out my duties. Get any other ofice travel to dificult, so I retire health reesons. Also had 4 further strokes sinse then. My disability against me and I got Incapacity Benefit. But remember David Lindley I paid NI and Income Tax sinse left school and now geting state pension and civil service pension still do pay tax. I earned my disability benefits, I paid for them. National Insurance is that insurance against what may hapen any of us. If you never have claim you should feel grateful those, like me, who have to claim not ask for what befell us.
