No that's a rare thing.
So a round of applause, please, and a hearty well done to the Department of Work and Pensions for this, courtesy of the BBC:
Terminally ill people warned over possible benefit cutDid you see that? "...even though Parliament has yet to approve the changes" and "The changes will be retrospective."
Thousands of terminally-ill people have begun receiving letters warning them their benefits could be cut in April even though Parliament has yet to approve the changes.
Under proposals being scrutinised in the Lords, Contributory Employment Support Allowance (CESA) will be time-limited to 12 months from April 2012.
The changes will be retrospective.
So people on CESA for 12 months or more when the rule comes into force will have their benefit cut immediately.

Disgusting. Our government should be ashamed of itself.
