The Tower Hamlets foster child story sums up a rotten borough

Which, do you reckon, is more repellent – the decision by Tower Hamlets, a borough rotten to the marrow, to place a Christian child with two successive Muslim foster parents of uncompromising Islamic views, or its reaction to the Times’ coverage of the story yesterday, with a council spokesman saying that its fostering service “provides a loving, stable home for hundreds of children every year”? Both, I’d say, are par for the course.

This incident highlights how Islam treats “other religions” once in a position of power. This hatred is what our vile political class insists we accept lest we be called racist for failing to tolerate ourselves to death.
