Universal Tebbit has been suggested by one colleague as a potential name for this new benefit. Sec 1(2)(f)  WRA 2011 requires as a condition of entitlement that:

(f) the claimant

(i) possesses a bicycle; and

(ii)  has got on it

[.....]

(4) Bicycle in this section does not mean a two wheeled conveyance powered using pedals but instead refers to the act of spending all ones waking hours looking for poorly paid work in rubbish conditions of a sort that would bring a smile to the sneering face of even the most heartless capitalist.

Love it!

I’ll have to see what my colleague’s voice recognition package can make of it. I still think Her Majestys Intestines & Upload takes a lot of beating.

It will be an ESA descriptor before we know it. i can see it on the ESA 50.

Are you able to get on a bike? Please tick one box.

Shawn, Can we have new forum for questions concerning Her Majesties Intestines and Upload?
