Now "three quarters" of Labours sickies "can work".

Seventy five per cent of people on sickness benefits under the last Labour Government can work.

That's the startling statistic that comes out of the latest government crackdown.

The findings will intensify anger and resentment felt by many people at Britain's soaring welfare bill.

Out of all of the people given the official health test in the 2010-2011 tax year 55 per cent were told that they were no longer entitled to the benefit and 20 per cent were told that they could work with support.

Chris Grayling told the Daily Express that it is right to help people back to work rather than leave them stranded on benefits.
