In Britain, three children were removed from the care of their foster parents because the couple were members of UKIP. Social workers said membership of the party meant they were racists, and thus unfit to care for children.
In other news, opponents of the Muslim Brotherhood took to the streets in Cairo and Alexandria to protest Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s assumption of dictatorial powers. Angry mobs shouted slogans, and then ransacked and torched the offices of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Meanwhile, a man in Maine has been sentenced to five days in jail for hitting his estranged wife with his… ahem… manly organ.

What I just realised and I mentioned on vlads blog is the area rotherham were this happened is up for a by election 29th of november. Could this be part of the political crackdown in the uk? The labour run council sending a message before the election to show what happens if you vote against the grain? What is fascinating Is that these parents were labelled racist, yet their foster children were from ethnic minorities.
It’s mind boggling the logic of this. And we must note ukip Is a mainstream party about to become britains third largest party. As I said on vlads page I hope the British freedom party do to labour what ukip have done to the Tories. The time for the status quo in British politics is over. I hope the people of Rotherham vote ukip in disgust.
Heavens above the country of my birth has become fascist. The new Nazi’s? BRITAIN? Whoever would hae even imagined this horror in the once-Great Britain ! I am disgusted, ashamed, and my brave forefathers must be rolling in their graves ! Thank goodness my dear dad has gone, he died peacefully, this would have given him a heart attack !His endeavours in WW2 for nothing, his dad fighting in WW1, for nothing.Pain, suffering, loss of life, all for nothing, ruined in only a few decades by mostly leftie (new fascist) dhimmi “do-gooders”. Traitors all of them
The end of GB. It will soon self-destruct, the goal of many enemies for centuries.!
FInally GB has been ruined , attacked, invaded, broken…God left the GB at least 20 years ago it has been left with no protection anymore and will suffer a humiliating demise, UNLESS UKIP gets in !!
I am totally shocked at the decision of Rotherhams Council to remove children from a foster family because the family support UKIP.
What has been euphemistically called ‘political correctness’ is now well on the way to metamorphosing into left-wing fascism.
So is now it the law in the UK that human rights are only granted to people with council approved political affiliations? Here is an excerpt from the UK Human Rights Act 1998
Article 14 Prohibition of discrimination
The enjoyment of the rights and freedoms set forth in this Convention shall be secured without discrimination on any ground such as sex, race, colour, language, religion, political or other opinion , national or social origin, association with a national minority, property, birth or other status.
I bet you Geoffrey Robertson QC will be conspicuously absent in commenting on this case.
If this atrocious decision is not reversed within days I truly fear for the future of the UK.
