Ian Robinson, 43, had to leave his job after developing arthritis, but the authorities have ruled he is not entitled to disability benefits and he must now try to survive on Jobseeker's Allowance.

Mr Robinson decided to demonstrate how angry he was about the decision by staging a bizarre protest in front of shocked staff at Bridlington Job Centre.
'When I started taking my clothes off, a man said "You can't do that in here", so I went over and glued myself to his desk. Nobody tried to stop me, it was too late by that point,' he told the Yorkshire Post.
The naked demonstrator prised himself off the furniture before paramedics arrived and he suffered only some redness to the skin on his arms.
However, Mr Robinson was arrested and charged with a public order offence and criminal damage - although he insisted the protest had been worth it and that he 'would do it all over again' if he felt it would help make his point.
'A society is judged on how it treats the sick and leaving them without disability benefit is criminal,' he added.
All he wanted to do was...stick around!
He was adhering to his convictions.
Sounds like he’s stuck on stupid.
Protester? I’m surprised he wasn’t sniffing the glue.
I clicked on this to find out what part of him was adhering...and discovered it was just his arms. With “naked ex-postman” in the title, I was hoping for something better.
Shoulda used a post-it.
Gorilla glue on the wanker would be sheer stupidity.
I bet he was really stuck on himself! LOL!
He picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue...
“I got’cher package roight ‘ere!”
He was naked when he was a postman. Now that he’s an “ex” postman he’s fully clothed.
The NHS at work, providing historic medical care for Brits.
This guy should be on disability. The Brits have become real cheapskates.
NxPM: “Epoxy on the healthcare system!”
Does he now qualify for disability benefits as mentally ill for this shenanigan?
Going postal used to mean going wild with an AK-47. Now it means getting nekkid with a tube of super glue.
