Klitschko's statement on Chisora





I am shocked and deeply embarrassed by the actions of Dereck Chisora and his team over this past week.It saddens me how he represented the sport of boxing and disrespected the Champion of the World Vitali Klitschko at the weigh-in and fight night.


But even more embarrassing and disgraceful to the sport was the post fight press conference.


With journalists from all over the world in attendance, this same man Dereck Chisora, got into a fight with Adam Booth, the trainer of David Haye, and David Haye himself. Dereck then promised out loudly multiple times right in front of the press to "personally SHOOT AND KILL David Haye!!!"


For all of the great Champions from the past that have been polishing the image of the sport of boxing and giving it the glamour, respect and recognition while setting a good example for the youth of the world to follow, this type of behavior kills all that hard work from the former champs and teaches disrespect for the sport and fellow human beings.


There has to be consequences for these kinds of actions and must never be tolerated by the boxing organizations, the media, fellow boxers and boxing fans. It must be stopped, otherwise the sport of boxing is going to go down the hill fast!I just wanted to share my feelings and thoughts with you and hope some type of action is taken to show the world that the sport of boxing WILL NOT tolerate this kind of behavior.


With respect,


Wladimir Klitschko

Companies review role in Working scheme





The fashion chain, Matalan, has suspended its involvement in a government-backed work experience scheme that has caused controversy.Critics claim the Get Britain Working project exploits people on benefits.


Sainsbury's and Waterstones have already opted out of the scheme, which requires people to work for nothing for an employer for up to eight weeks.But the Employment Minister, Chris Grayling, has defended the initiative and said it was voluntary.Some participants of Get Britain Working have been told they could lose their benefits if they drop out before the end of their placement.


Matalan said in a blog on its website that "as a result of negative speculation, Matalan has paused the programme in order to conduct a review related to the terms of these work placements and will not be employing any additional resource in the meantime until the review is concluded".


It said it was "supportive of the initiative and its ability to provide the opportunity for unemployed people to gain experience that will be beneficial for future job seeking".


Voluntary scheme


Earlier, police were called after a dozen protesters forced the closure of a Tesco Express store opposite the Houses of Parliament in a protest about the scheme.This came after an advert was published for a night-shift worker at a Tesco store in Suffolk which suggested they would only receive expenses on top of their Jobseeker's Allowance. The advert was later amended.


A Tesco spokesman said Jobcentre Plus had wrongly advertised a short work experience placement at Tesco as a permanent unpaid job.''This has resulted in widespread misunderstanding of our position," he said.He said Tesco had been working with Jobcentre Plus for many months to offer work experience opportunities lasting up to four weeks for young unemployed people.


"No one is under any obligation to take part in the scheme, and Jobcentre Plus has assured us that all of those who have come to Tesco have done so as volunteers."Tesco would not take part in any mandatory scheme. This is all about helping young people who want to find a job.


"We would never offer longer term work on an unpaid basis".


He continued: "Work experience at Tesco should, wherever possible, be a pathway to a paid job with Tesco. That has already been the case for 300 work experience participants with us so far and we hope it will be for many more people."We understand the concern that those who stay in the scheme longer than a week risk losing their benefits if they drop out before the end of their placement.


"We have suggested to DWP that, to avoid any misunderstanding about the voluntary nature of the scheme, this threat of losing benefit should be removed."The Commons Work and Pensions Select committee is investigating whether employers are using it to get "free labour" and has questioned whether the government can threaten to withdraw benefits from those who do not take part.


'Absurd' idea


But Mr Grayling insisted it was a voluntary scheme and said: "The only way that any jobseeker can fall foul of the sanctioning regime in this is if they walk out of a placement several weeks in."They have a week to decide whether it is right for them or not and if they think it isn't they can leave.


"Later in the placement if they just don't turn up one day and decide not to come back they can have a limited sanction."He said: "The idea that providing work experience for unemployed young people is some kind of forced labour is utterly and completely absurd."


A DWP spokesperson also said: "The scheme is voluntary and no one is forced to take part and the threat of losing the benefit only starts once a week has passed on the placement - this was designed to provide certainty to employers and the individuals taking part."


The spokesperson also confirmed that the Tesco role had been "incorrectly described and advertised by Jobcentre Plus; not by Tesco - there was no error whatsoever on their part."The shopworkers' union Usdaw, which represents more than 400,000 workers, said it was in discussions with major retailers about their involvement.


It says that, while work experience could be valuable, schemes should be voluntary and pay the going rate.Mark Dunk, of the Right to Work campaign, said: "Instead of forcing people to work for free we need an end to job cuts and mass investment to address the scandal of unemployment."

Tesco Protest Over Government Scheme





Right to work campaigners will protested at a Tesco store in London, as a row rumbles on over a "misunderstood" job advertisement.The supermarket giant has amended an advert looking for permanent workers in exchange for expenses and jobseeker's allowance, saying it was a mistake.Twitter and Facebook users had highlighted the advert for a night shift worker at a store in west Suffolk on the Jobseekers' Plus website.


It was offered under the government's "sector-based work academy scheme" which is linked to payment of benefits - but Tesco said the impression that it was seeking to replace full-time workers was mistaken.The error comes after unions called for high street chains to withdraw from government programmes that require the unemployed to work for up to six months or face losing their benefits.


Tesco has explained that the advert was "a mistake caused by an IT error by Jobcentre Plus" which was being rectified. It was an advert for work experience with a guaranteed job interview at the end of it as part of a government-led work experience scheme.However, right to work campaigners are pressing on with the protest, at Tesco in Portcullis House, opposite the Houses of Parliament.


A spokesman for the protesters said: "Tesco reports that over the past four months some 1,400 people have worked for them without pay. Only 300 got a job with the company."The Tory government is slashing jobs and then punishing the jobless. And to add insult to injury, they are forcing people to work for free to boost profits for big business.


"That's why we will be demanding that workfare be scrapped immediately."Sam James, joint national chair of Right to Work, said: "This is another example of working class people being forced to pay for a crisis created by the greed of the rich. Tesco is cashing in on people's misery. Perhaps this is what it means by 'every little helps'."


Mark Dunk of Right to Work said: "Instead of forcing people to work for free we need an end to job cuts and mass investment to address the scandal of unemployment."A Tesco spokesman said today: "JobCentre Plus wrongly advertised a short work experience placement at Tesco as a permanent, unpaid job. This has resulted in widespread misunderstanding of our position. We are happy to re-state the facts:


"Tesco has been working in partnership with JobCentre Plus for many months to offer work experience opportunities lasting up to four weeks for young unemployed people who are struggling to find jobs."No one is under any obligation to take part in the scheme, and JobCentre Plus has assured us that all of those who have come to Tesco have done so as volunteers. Tesco would not take part in any mandatory scheme. This is all about helping young people who want to find a job.


"We would never offer longer term work on an unpaid basis. The Department for Work and Pensions has acknowledged that the advertisement was an error on the part of JobCentre Plus. Work experience at Tesco should, wherever possible, be a pathway to a paid job with Tesco. That has already been the case for 300 work experience participants with us so far and we hope it will be for many more people.


"We understand the concern that those who stay in the scheme longer than a week risk losing their benefits if they drop out before the end of their placement. We have suggested to DWP that, to avoid any misunderstanding about the voluntary nature of the scheme, this threat of losing benefit should be removed."We remain committed to offering long-term, sustainable and rewarding paths into employment for thousands of young people."


Minister for Employment Chris Grayling said: "Our work experience scheme is voluntary and thanks to companies like Tesco and many others has provided a route for literally thousands of young people to find their first job."The idea that providing work experience for unemployed young people is some kind of forced labour is utterly and completely absurd."


A DWP spokeswoman said: "Tesco is one of Britain's leading employers and we know the opportunities they provide are hugely valuable to young people. We know that work experience schemes make a fantastic difference to young people moving into the world of work. The scheme is voluntary and no one is forced to take part and the threat of losing the benefit only starts once a week has passed on the placement - this was designed to provide certainty to employers and the individuals taking part.


"As we made clear on Thursday, this role was incorrectly described and advertised by Jobcentre Plus; not by Tesco - there was no error whatsoever on their part."
