When she was unemployed, Reilly was placed on a diabolical scheme called Workfare by the Department for Work and Pensions, which involved her working full time unpaid for her benefits, which at the time were £54 per week. This is the same amount that privileged fascist Iain Duncan Smith was challenged to live on earlier this year, a challenge that Smith, who lives rent free in a mansion with a tennis court and a swimming pool, unsurprisingly refused. Smith's dreaded Bedroom Tax has not only driven several people into committing suicide, but also lots of people, innocent victims of the financial crisis caused by bailed out fascist banks, into total despair.
So we have total fascism causing total despair.
What is fascism?
Well, first you may not know what fascism is but you may have heard of it.
WE FOUGHT FASCISM IN WORLD WAR 2!!
We fought to rid the world of the scurge, the evil, the horror of fascism in World War 2. Fascism is synonymous with Hitler and Mussolini. YET WE CREATED BOTH OF THEM! We gave Hitler all the technology he needed to create another German military, then allowed him to build it up way beyond that allowed by The Treaty of Versailles, and then encouraged and financed his eugenics policies! And as for Mussolini, similar to Hitler, he was given $100 million dollars by JP Morgan and Wall Street, after he wrote pro-war propaganda for British intelligence during World War 1 to keep Italy on the side of the allies! YOU COULD NOT MAKE THIS STUFF UP! However, after creating these monsters we slayed them, and The United Nations, that bastard world-government-in-waiting, was born, reinforced by continental governments like the EU.
Fascism is essentially the corporations using the government to enforce their will; the corporations v. the people.
The government is supposed to work FOR the people, not the corporations.
In the case of Reilly, she worked for Poundland but Poundland did not pay her any wage directly. So Poundland received all the benefits of her work, but the government paid her 'wage', i.e. her benefit of £54 per week. So what is that per hour? Poundland got the benefit of all her work.
Now, is that fascism or is that fascism?
But to me, the whole point of Reilly's case is that the HM Government was in such a rush to implement total fascism that it broke the law!!
Readers should also note that Iain Duncan Smith is not in such a rush to take up the challenge of living off £54 per week.
The government's "back to work" schemes, which were challenged by a graduate who was made to work for free at Poundland and an HGV driver made to clean furniture, were legally flawed, the UK's highest court has ruled.
The supreme court ruled against the Department for Work & Pensions (DWP), which was attempting to overturn an earlier verdict by the court of appeal.
The supreme court stopped short of ruling that the regulations constituted forced or compulsory labour, but said the 2011 regulations creating the programme were invalid as they did not contain a sufficiently detailed "prescribed description" of the schemes.

Just think; a week on Sunday is Remembrance Sunday, when our leaders put on their grim faces and lay wreathes at The Cenotaph. Yet they break the law to implement the very political system that our fathers and grandfathers fought in World War 2.
I shake my head in utter despair.
