At SOME time?

How about immediately?

UKIP are a bunch of borderline nutters and Farage was certainly at least receptive to the views of the NF and BNP in earlier days but they are a genuine political party, membership of which is immaterial to the couple's suitability as Foster parents.
The same would apply to the Communist party, Socialist Workers party, Green Party or Natural Law party.

They have a good chance here (rotherham) and in Croydon. More chance than any other party anyway.

Rotherham has already had a big walkout of the local party over the selection process.
With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Thankfully David Cameron doesn't live in Rotherham, it would be tragic if they took little Nick away from him just because of his political beliefs.

The local party got quite upset when the new candidate was dropped on them. Respect could do them some damage here.


Their candidate, Yvonne Ridley, has certainly taken to Islam in a big way. see http://yvonneridley.org/ and http://en.wikipedia....i/Yvonne_Ridley but she ain't no Salma Yaqoob.

'Being lectured on probity by David Blunkett is bit like being told to sit up straight by Quasimodo,' said Ms Ridley.

Is UKIP a racist party? It certainly sails close to the wind.

David Cameron has retracted his retraction.

Which I think means he does still think Ukip is filled with nutters.

Hey, forget UKIP being a racist party - just look at the link on that page to this fruitcake's blog entry:-

Rotherham is a sheeite council. Safeguarding issues, poor management, been in dodgy territory viz their inspections, etc. I wouldn't take the judgement of anyone working for Rotherham Council as being worth a first glance, never mind a second. UKIP wants the UK to leave the EU. That's about as racist as it gets as a party. And no, I don't vote UKIP. Remember, Rotherham stated that UKIP was considered racist because it 'didn't like European people', which is as childish a statement as I can think of.

Massive mistake by Rotherham Council this, and will seriously put good people off volunteering as foster carers.

And we're sure that the children didn't complain about their foster parents' views making them uncomfortable or anything?

I do not like Farage and I wish that he hadn't done that but this is guilt by association.

Unless he has made similar statements himself then it should be disregarded.

Childish and inaccurate, Farage is married to a German.

We can't be sure because not all the facts are in the public arena. But the facts that we do have certainly don't support that interpretation.

If Labour Tories in Rotherhamichmond put up a of Donkey as candidate, the burghers would vote them in. Eh, up...they did,

They elected William Hague! (wonder why he didn't stand in his home town of Rotherham?)

There seems to be some sort of misunderstanding. This is all about Rotherham. If you want to start a topic about Richmond Council taking kids away from foster parents just because of the political party they belong to, please feel free.

Certainly when Joyce Thacker, Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services in Rotherham gave quite a long interview on BBCTV News this morning, she did not mention that. She did say, "These children are not UK children and we were not aware of the foster parents having strong political views. There are some strong views in the UKIP party and we have to think of the future of the children."

You can hear her Radio 4 Interview here: http://audioboo.fm/b...om-strong-views This is a must hear for those who would like to know.

It was you who accused the people of Rotherham of voting for donkeys. So why not the people of Richmond? After all William only just scraped in 1989, but despite the fact that it was clear Thatcher was no longer fit to govern, enough Tories voters still elected their donkey. It's clear you regard anyone who votes Labour as not being worthy of having the vote and who should therefore be immediately disenfranchised. I wonder why it is that the areas in the former Metropolitan County of South Yorkshire vote Labour in such large numbers? Come to think of it I wonder why it is that the heartlands of the game we both love is predominantly represented at both national and local levels by the Labour party? Could it be that the same people who tried to prevent weavers and colliers from playng sport, vinctimising and ostracising them if they did are the same people who victimised and exploited them in their workplace? Rotherham council's action is stupid. But much of what the current government is doing such as dismanltling the NHS could also be described as stupid. Perhaps there's also a case for the electors of Richmond to be disenfranchised too..
