My issue isn't predominantly about UKIP or Rotherham Council or even the parents. It's about the children.
Like all of us, I know little or nothing here about the children but I'd warrant that their life journey up to this point has been pretty rocky and, if I was the decision-maker at Rotherham, I'd hope that - no, I know that - my priority would be to try to make the next bit as good as I possibly could. And I wouldn't have to read far down the UKIP manifesto for alarm bells to start ringing.
Yes, I have also known people whose parents had unpleasant views and grew up wiser. But I've known others who stayed pretty fucked-up. And they's arguably had a better start in life than these kids.
And this isn't just about passing on the views, is it? It's about their gut feelings about what these children are and what they represent to them.
As for the stability argument, when I taught school in Leicestershire, the nice local children's home seemed a wonderful refuge, especially given the pleasant and caring administrator with whom I shared many a coffee and a laugh and a warm anecdote.
Until the paedophile ring story broke, that is.
