LONDON – Britain's education secretary says he will investigate how local officials removed three children from their foster family because of concerns about the parents' political beliefs.
The Rotherham borough council sparked criticism Saturday when it was revealed that its social workers removed the children, who are European migrants, because their foster parents are members of the right-wing U.K. Independence Party.
I'm sure the same actions would have been taken if the foster parents were part of a left-wing party, right? I'm certain that the party's views on immigration reform played no part in the removal. I mean, England's never been one to appease an invading force, right?
And to those who think it can't happen here, well, if you believe that I've got this bridge for sale...
That is all.
