    Foster family in UK loses kids due to political views

    A British couple who acted as foster parents for three children have had them removed from their care because of their political views.
    A local authority in northern England said it took the decision after discovering the foster parents supported the right-wing UK Independence Party (UKIP).
    It said it was concerned about the party's policies on immigration and the fact the children were not white.
    Speaking to the BBC, Joyce Thacker, strategic director of children and young people's services at the council, said she had to decide whether some foster placements were appropriate for particular children.
    "These [particular] children are from EU migrant backgrounds and UKIP has very clear statements on ending multiculturalism, [on] not having that going forward, and I have to think about how sensitive am I being to these children," she said.
    UKIP's leader Nigel Farage condemned the council's move.
    "We are a non-racist, non-sectarian political party... They (the couple) were giving those children love and stability and all the things they need," he said.
    "They have been discriminated against.... on the basis that they support a party that says we shouldn't be part of the European Union and we should control our borders and that is the most appalling prejudice."

    Shameful. The frightened response of the hopelessly institutionalized.

    This would be akin to supporting removing children from '1980 campaigning Reagan' brand of libertarianism which is far from Harry Browne. UKIP is trying to rewind back to a state we are just now hitting (as I understand there/here).

    This is their bogeyman. Decide for yourself what the message is.

    UKIP Is only a small political party here, and at elections don't have a candidate for each available area. If they did, I think they would be the next Government.

    Sounds like California. If you own firearms you are usually ineligible to foster

    UKIP want to close our borders to other Europeans.

    Why? Because ALL members of the EU have right to come to the UK and instantly claim benefits. Unemployment, health care, child allowance, housing, etc etc. Which means we pay more tax to pay for this influx, but can't afford to look after people that were born an bred here.

    Cameron promised a Referendum, on staying or leaving the EU, IF he got elected. Still waiting!

    That was binned in the coalition agreement when they got rid of everything that just said to try and get your vote but had no intention of doing. So we all got something we didn't vote for and don't want.
