Government's Help to Work scheme launches

[quote=http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-27177767]A new government scheme to help the long-term unemployed get jobs comes into effect on Monday.
Those who have not found work after two years on the existing Work Programme, will have to enrol on the Help to Work scheme or face reduced benefits.
Participants will have to go to the job centre every day, some will be offered community work placements and others will receive intensive coaching.
Those who fail to take part could lose jobless benefits for four weeks.
They have not defined what they mean by fail
Some questions, spring to mind,  (you may also have some of your own)
1, Will disabled / ill people be persecuted
2. Will family emergencies (child(ren) taken ill) be sanctioned
3. Will favouring a job interview over a daily ritual to the joke shop, have their benefits stopped
4. Will the joke shop(s) reimburse those that have to use public transport for the daily ritual
