Government employment figures

The BBC recently led the triumphalism in the announcement of a large rise in the  Private sector employment figures.  They omitted to reveal that hundreds of thousands of those were teachers and others reclassified from the public sector  into the private sector.

Now as shown in Lord Justice  Pill’s judgement of workfare  in the case of DWP vs Reilly/Wilson., hundreds of thousands more were those forced onto illegal workfare schemes.
