Three children have been removed from their foster parents because social workers were concerned about the couple’s views on immigration and multiculturalism due to their membership of the UK Independence party.
Rotherham borough council defended its action against the couple, who have been fostering for seven years, saying there were concerns about the “cultural and ethnic needs” of the children who are “not indigenous white British”.
The unnamed South Yorkshire couple, who have looked after about a dozen children – all from ethnic minority backgrounds, told the Daily Telegraph that social workers had accused them of belonging to a “racist party”.
Ukip leader Nigel Farage described the council’s stance as “a bloody outrage” and “political prejudice of the very worst kind”.
