Nigel Farage: 'These are real lives and real people'

The leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, has expressed his outrage at the news that two UKIP supporters were told they could no longer foster children because of their political views.


The council and the panel clearly have no understanding of UKIP and by their actions, clearly no desire to know....


@howson_halifax I certainly have, I have been in contact with the distressed couple. It's an appalling, disgraceful state of affairs.


@etchellsskeat I am quite appalled that you think I would make up such a story for political effect. These are real lives and real people


UKIP foster couple apology

Rotherham Council has apologised for the way it handled a decision to remove three Eastern European children from foster parents who were members of the UK Independence Party. But they insist the decision was in the children's "best interests."
