They're muppets!! I sent my form in and it took over 2 months for them to deal with it. They've declined me because I HAVE to go in to work for a couple of days to do reglatory reporting. I think I can have upto 10 days in work anyway. I've disputed it because of this, my child will be in school by the time they've made a decision!!
