(not satire – it’s the Sally Army!)

The Salvation Army has been heavily criticised for using unemployed people who have been forced – under the threat of having their benefits taken away from them – to work against their will for them for free as part of the government’s Workfare scheme.

And what is the Salvation Army’s defence?

Workfare doesn’t exist.

Here’s a screenshot from their Facebook page:

Whatever next?

Government ministers claiming poverty and homelessness don’t exist?

Oh …… hang on a minute……


Here’s a petition demanding the Salvation Army withdraws from the workfare scheme:
