Today, the Supreme Court have ruled on the "Poundland" case:
The government has lost a Supreme Court appeal over a ruling its flagship "back to work" schemes were legally flawed.That second sentence is important because:
Ministers failed in a bid to overturn an earlier ruling that regulations underpinning the schemes were invalid.
But the Supreme Court rejected a counter-appeal against the scheme and upheld the Court of Appeal's ruling in the government's favour that the regulations did not constitute forced or compulsory labour.And that's the crux of the case the likes of Boycott Workfare or whatever union front were making; that workfare equals slavery. The highest court in the land says otherwise.
