Six years ago they agreed and paid him income support of several hundred pounds a month. At the time he said: "I have been trying for ten years to get this classified as a handicap. I spoke to three psychologists and they finally agreed that I needed this to avoid being discriminated against."
But after his story made the rounds again recently, he revealed his payments stopped in January 2012. Read what he had to say and find out if he found a job.
