Not kept up regularly. My impression is that it's something like they're a phenomenon that would not occur if the Tories were their old selves.

The fact that they're in Rotherham I think has some meaning. In Tory Shire Heartland, being a Kipper is at least a vaguely in-group thing to do; in the Urban North, it's more like being the founder and sole member of the Alabama chapter of the Shiv Sena.

Not necessarily. The elected mayor of Doncaster is an English Democrat.

Yes, and unfortunately 'Yorkshire and the Humber' has a UKIP MEP who is very far right. I think this is the key- if the foster children are of Eastern European descent then it might well be a cause for concern if they are placed under the care of a couple of paid-up xenophobes.

Surely the main point here is any chance to bash social workers and anyone who smacks of the nanny state and their desire to act as thought police. (Not that I think they do, I just thought that was the standard daily mail line)

Martin Wisse

Well, you certainly managed to guess the Mail's headlines this morning.

Chris Brooke

And do please note that one of the authors of the Mail's front-page story today is my namesake.
