The interesting thing about Axl declining is that both Slash and Duff have said that if he doesn't show they'd be happy to play with Billy Joe Armstrong as their lead singer for the event. (He's inducting them in) and I bet Billy Joe could belt out a mean version of Sweet Child Of Mine and Paradise City.

Have 1,000 people died after being found "fit for work"?

I guess we'd have to know how many people were found "fit for work" to know if this was an unusually high number anyway.

... and from TFA, it seems this is 1,000 people put in the 'Work-Related Activity' category, which is not the same as 'fit for work'. Admittedly the Mail has previous in conflating these two.
