Its worth pointing out, that since this story broke some things have come to light which rather put a different complexion on things.
First of all, the specific family concerned speak perfect English, according to the council concerned, who also point out in a report in the Guardian, that the family is actually of mixed heritage. Also, the Daily Mail report was paired with an image which has done the rounds on social media. The image published with the report, shows a woman sporting a covered face and in the familiar coverings of a Muslim woman. However, there are two things about this image which are very misleading indeed. First and foremost, the image itself was originally captioned "Happiness couple in Dubai park", and has somewhere between nothing and bugger all to do with the situation at hand. What is more, in the original image, the woman captured in the shot has her face exposed, not covered.
Also, it has come to light that the girl in question has grandparents who are... yes, you may have guessed, Muslim.
So actually, this case highlights nothing at all about the inappropriateness of the fostering system in this country, and rather more highlights the inability of the right wing press to actually get their facts straight. But what more do we really expect, from a collective of obsolete, reactionary has beens, whose grip on reality, much like their control of the minds of the citizen, is collapsing?

MPs have been urged to launch an inquiry into the placement of foster children after a white Christian girl was reportedly put into the care of a non-English speaking Muslim family.
The most disgusting think is the family did not speak English!
What the # are people doing living permanently in Britain when they cant speak English let alone being foster parents? My girlfreind from south America cant even get a 2 week tourist visa yet If your muslim and cant speak English you get to live here!
Secondly how is this not child abuse? Throwing a vulnerable girl into a family that do not respect her culture and belief system......and cant even communicate with her?

Here is a link to just one of many articles referring to the girls grandparents being Muslim, either presently or at some stage in their past:
And here is the issue with the image that was used in the Daily Mail:
Its part way through the article that they deal with the issue of the image, which was originally a Getty hosted image.
"Documents including the assessment of the maternal grandparents state that they are of a Muslim background but are non-practising. The child's mother says they are of Christian heritage."
She had "raised some concerns" about the "appropriateness" of the placement but had "at no stage" applied for a change of foster carer, the judge added.
So actually, this case highlights nothing at all about the inappropriateness of the fostering system in this country, and rather more highlights the inability of the right wing press to actually get their facts straight.

This is to easy to make you look like a fool. The bible (old testament) states that if a son dishonors his parents, they can crush him with a boulder. If your a Christian, that makes you equally some kind of monster as well by that logic. QED.
