    Fairly sure I've replied to a thread on this subject before with - the whole idea of compulsion for those in the support group is absurd, as by definition, i.e. to get into the support group, everyone in it has already been defined, by the DWP's own "medical" people, as unable to undertake any "work related activity" for health reasons
