UK City Council Removes Foster Children from Conservative Parents

You get the distinct impression that fanatics like Joyce Thacker and her colleagues would rather half the children in Britain were raised by the benevolent and right-thinking state than by any parent -- however responsible and loving -- who dares to deviate from the party line. It's difficult to imagine a more cruel and perverse manifestation of “progressive” left-wing thinking.

But by handing a moral victory and acres of publicity to the very party whose rise they most fear, and by acting in a manner so indefensible that even the leaders of their own party have abandoned them, they have hopefully inflicted lasting damage on their brand.
