Rotherham Council takes foster children away from UKIP couple

A foster couple in Rotherham who are members of UKIP have had three children taken away from them by social services. The reason given by the council is that the “children were not indigenously white British”. The phrase “indigenous white British” is one that is often used by parties like the BNP.

The unnamed couple told the Daily Telegraph social workers had accused them of belonging to a “racist party”. UKIP said it was an appalling decision.

Rotherham Borough Council’s Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services, Joyce Thacker, told the BBC that her decision was influenced by UKIP’s immigration policy, which she said calls for the end of the “active promotion of multiculturalism”.

UKIP’s immigration policy states the party wants an “end [to] the active promotion of the doctrine of multiculturalism by local and national government”, and urges Britain to leave the European Union (EU).

The Labour Party has called for an investigation into the Labour-run council’s decision, after claims from UKIP it could have been politically motivated.

This is a propaganda coup for UKIP, who will use this as a stick to beat the Labour Party. Bravo, Labour-controlled Rotherham council for getting it so badly wrong.

UKIP leader, Nigel Farage is being interviewed on telly. He’s just said that he’s “publicizing the case”. Farage also claimed that the couple in question were former Labour Party members, which adds another dimension to this. I expect this won’t go away. But I also suspect that there is something more to this than the BBC is telling us.

With the Rotherham by-election due to take place next Thursday, this could seriously impact on Labour’s campaign. The choice of Labour candidate has not gone down well with local party members, who walked out in protest. The by-election was called after Denis MacShane, the MP for Rotherham, stepped down after admitting to wrongly claiming over £7,000 in expenses. MacShane has been described as a Eurofanatic.

This has happened with less than a week to the by-election and UKIP will use this case as its battering ram. I only hope that TUSC’s Ralph Dyson can take the seat and wipe the smiles off the faces of UKIP and Labour.

    So the Social Services of Rotherham Borough Council have concerns about UKIP’s Immigration Policy!! Why don’t Rotherham Borough Copncil look into its own stance of Immigration policy which allows those into the UK and in particular Rotherham who are causing havoc with their tantrums and ‘rights’.
    I live in Wales but have friends who live near Rotherham and are disabled. Every friday is their therapuetic day out by catching a suitable Bus that can take a wheelchair and spend the day in Rotherham Town centre.On a recent visit to South Yorkshire I called in to see them. They informed me that they have curtailed their weekly visit to Rotherham because their last recent visit was too dangerous for them!! Apparently the Muslims were ‘Kicking off’ in the Town centre and the Police were involved in the fracas!!
    Their weekly enjoyment has been takrn away from them through Ethnic Migrants who think that their Culture superceeds the age old Christian Values and rights of Great Britain!!!. The annoyance with most Brits is, that if I went to Muslim Countries I have to live by their cultural rules and regulations. UKIP are not racist (and I am not a UKIP mamber) thay are just worried about the avalanche of Muslims that are nibbling away at our culture and rights.

    • What exactly are “Christian values” when they’re at home? Some people in this country may like to say that Britain is a “Christian” country but how true is that? From what I hear, churches are practically empty on Sundays. It’s only the so-called charismatic churches that are attracting numbers and guess what? Those churches are attended by immigrants from African and South America. This has nothing to do with Muslims nor does it suggest that any group is “nibbling away at our (sic) culture”. But what do you mean by “our” culture anyway? Do you think there is some kind of British monoculture that is overseen and regulated by a group of august men in a dark smoke-filled rooms in a Gothic building somewhere in the south-east?
