Did you hear about the nationwide protests against Atos, and the Work Capability Assessments they carry out? Wasn’t it great? What, you didn’t know anything about it? I wonder why. Perhaps you get your news from the BBC which, for all the Tories’ accusations of left-wing bias, is becoming more and more like Britain’s version of Fox “News” every day.


The protests did happen though, and they were reported, but mainly by local newspapers, and by bloggers.
