The Socialist Republic of South Yorkshire - Rotherham District. Labour political discrimination laid bare as foster children removed from parents who don't vote for the Party.

It's dreadful the way the BBC are covering this up by having it as the main headline and giving space for Nigel Farage to respond.

If only there was a way the good people of Rotherham could show their views on this coming up soon.

They have also been hiding it away on Radio 4. Who listens to that?

If Labour in Rotherham put up a bunch of Donkeys as candidates, the burghers would vote them in. Eh, up...they did, and they did! 58 of them.

Still , on the main point....

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

wouldn't that make it a nautical party? :rolleyes:

What right does Rotherham Council have to take this political cleansing action just because the foster parents were members of a properly constituted and perfectly legal political party that as a number of democratically elected representatives. They have played right into the hands of Nigel Farrage.

This just in from Labour Party's press team on Twitter: Membership of UKIP shouldn't block parents from adopting children. There needs to be an urgent investigation by Rotherham Council into this

Joyce Thacker, head of Rotherham's snatch squad, just been on TV trying to justify the action

With fostering/adopting broadening such as same sex partners able to do so, this is walking on a tightrope and will backfire at some point. I wonder if it will be brought up on Question Time?

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.

1, Shads, I understand what you are saying about UKIP. In addition UKIP members, like members of other parties, may not subscribe to all of their parties policies. Sure, UKIP is in my view less of a broad church party than Labour, Lib Dem or Conservative.

2, Thacker contradicted herself on TV. She said, or seemed to say that they were not allowed to ask what party the foster parents belonged to, but then the first question they were asked by her staff was " are you members of UKIP.

3. She is probably in a difficult position wedged between a dominant Labour party, her duties, and this: http://www.bbc.co.uk...kshire-19701760

4. see here, too. http://labour-uncut.co.uk/2012/09/27/the-rotherham-grooming-case-shows-the-dangers-of-confusing-criminality-with-culture/

4. Still wrong, though.

Absolutely hilarious response from Farage, accusing others of "appalling prejudice" without any hint of irony whatsoever.

I'm not a great fan of the public persona of Nigel Farage, but I assume you are suggesting that he is guilty of "appalling prejudice" himself. Can you expand on that? In what way is he appallingly prejudiced, and against what and/or whom?

I'm in no way a labour supporter, but this action was organised by Social Services. I doubt any LP members knew about it until it hit the news.

quite so...but this did happen I think on Tuesday. Of course, social services are damned if they do and damned if they don't but Thacker must be naive if she though that this would slip by un-noticed. Remains to be seen who denounced the foster parents and if any pressure was applied by any Councillor.

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.

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.
