    So I wouldn't tell anybody - then pray I don't get asked a stupid question at interview, which I invariably do. I c0ck up every one by being asked random questions that, to me, require massive clarification.

    I don't even bother to look for jobs now.

    Yes I think you're right unfortunately. Luckily for this particular position it is in Civil Service in quite a large department. Their forms offer a guaranteed interview for people with disabilities who meet the requirements of the position.

    Basing whether to give a job on an interview seems a rather stupid endeavour. My partner tells me of some of the hopeless employees that have come to her place of work - the managers bang on about how great they did in the interview at the start, yet in the job itself they're turning up late with hang overs, trying their best to leave early, constantly using their mobile phone, and generally putting little effort into the job. I can't help but laugh at the fact I do not do well at interviews, and people who do well at interviews can be so unbelievably crap at the job afterwards. Just goes to show interviewing isn't all it's made out to be as a way of selecting employees.
