‘No one shall be required to perform forced or compulsory labour.’
And yet this British government is doing prosily that!
Theoretically this article may not cover the back to work program this government has put into place but it dose Theoretically cover forced or compulsory labour to witch this government is forcing onto the British unemployed.
Sorry to temper everyone’s joy but it must be said that in the Cait Reilly judgment it was held the the workfare programme WAS NOT a scheme of forced compulsory labour – when of course any idiot with half a brain knows instinctively that IT IS!
If you refuse to perform free unpaid work for the DWP and their poverty-pimp private ‘workfare providers’ and client companies you will in future forfeit your benefits with all the attendant hunger and destituition that this will cause.
Public Interest lawyers should immediately lodge an appeal against this this judgment and challenge the fiction that it is not slavery all the way up to the European Court of Human Rights, if necessary!
