This week we're joined by disabled man Matthew Derrick who was injured while working over a number of years as a fork lift driver for FedEx parcels at Avonmouth. As soon as the company realised they could be sued for this injury Matthew believes they sacked him. He underwent two operations on his back but with little success. Not long after being forced out of his job and claiming disabled social scurity payments Matthew was approached to be 'vetted' by ATOS and examined, but he alleges the doctor who addessed him actually wrote down different answers on her report to the ones Matthew actually gave. Hs first ATOS decision appeal was unsucessful but he now has two suport workers, one from St Mungos and another from the Benegits advice service and hopes this time the 'system' will see sense and understand he is not fit for work with his severe back pain caused by this industrial injury.
Paul Fernie this week looks at the moon. Why does it always have one side dark and not spin like the planets do? And does the motion of the moon actually make humans more likely to at in strange ways as per the ancient word 'luna'-tic?
Jason Yannacopoulos looks at one Conservative party donor and, as he is half-Greek himself, offers his opinion on the Cyprus bank account confiscations.
