Fostering 'not about politics' says Rotherham UKIP couple

In my mind, fostering and adoption isn't about politics it's about giving care for the children, a safe living home where they can grow up into all-rounded citizens.

It's not about politics... They [the council] should apologise... We need some sort of assurance from the council that it [membership of UKIP] isn't going to make a difference.
