    Default Foster children removed from family because of political party membership

    A Yorkshire council has remove 3 foster children from a foster couple when the social workers found out they were members of UKip.

    The social worker was quoted as saying that as UKip are racist, so too must be the foster parents.

    Unsurprisingly a lot of people Are a little bit annoyed at this... Another win for British social workers.....

    a perfect example of the scourge of political correctness.

    I think it's sick that many children have been condemned to lives in childrens homes because of bullshit like this, I know that adoption is different to fostering but because of undue political correctness the adoption rate in this country has plumeted , there are loads of people who would happily adopt but they aren't deemed suitable by the powers that be.

    I'd say it's humans in general being cunts to humans which is nothing new at all.

    Um, the social worker is thinking of the BNP, I think a fair few of them could be described as racist, UKIP just want out of Europe and a sensible immigration policy, to a country that is full up, regardless of the colour of the applicant.

    [URL="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xP2HPATceTE"]nothing wrong with the BNP[/URL] (click before you moan)

    but really people are always going to be dicks if they disagree, politics is just another reason for people to hate each other.

    It's gone beyond that now. It's become a monster it's become like, malevolent correctness.

    It's hard to describe the phenomena, but to me, it's sorta like a strange authoritarianism where people in the public service have been so brainwashed by political correctness they've become little self appointed apparatchiks to enforce it on everyone else..

    If the foster parents can be shown to have an adverse effect on the upbringing of the child, I don't have a problem with this.

    What? No the foster parents were shown to be good guardians. The kids were removed because some council cretin voted for a different polictical party.
