I do not believe that there are any such things as gods and goddesses, for exactly the same reasons as I do not believe there are fairies, goblins or sprites, and these reasons should be obvious to anyone over the age of ten."

Fairly sure I’ve said this before: -
A child isn’t born bad.
A child in care isn’t bad.
A child in care is only a reflection of its life experiences.
A child in care has few, if any, choices.
Most of us couldn’t cope with what a child in care experienced before entering the care system.
Most of us couldn’t cope with living in the care system.
They’re not leeches.
As corporate parents, we’re here to look after children who had a rough start.
We’re not here to replace their parents.
We’re not here to change history.
We’re here to support and nurture.
We’re here to help them overcome the hurdles life put in their way.

I don’t generally use tumblr as a political forum, but this warrants an exception: -
Three Children in Care were talking to councillors about their experiences of being in care, and the councillors’ responsibilities as ‘corporate parents’, when Cambridgeshire County Councillor Gordon Gillick (UKIP) reportedly interrupted their presentation.
Cllr Gillick, who represents Waldersey, is alleged to have asked them how it felt ‘to be takers from the system’ and to have demanded when they ‘would give back to society’.
Natasha Finlayson, Chief Executive of The Who Cares? Trust, said:
“These are completely outrageous and profoundly ignorant comments which show absolutely no understanding of why children come into care or the support they need.
“Children in Care have had traumatic starts to their lives and we have a moral duty to provide them with the best possible care. As an elected member of a council, who has responsibility for the children in care in his area, Cllr Gillick should understand this.
“If these reports are true, Gordon Gillick must publicly apologise to the children and resign from his position on the council immediately. It is disappointing that Cllr Gillick’s comments have not been condemned by his fellow UKIP councillors.
“We also want UKIP Leader Nigel Farage to urgently clarify his party’s views towards children in care and care leavers and whether or not he considers Cllr Gillick’s reported comments to be acceptable.”
As a foster carer, I have better insight than many into the care system. I do not know of any young person in the care system who relishes their situation.
Cllr Gillick’s comments are inexcusable and appallingly ignorant. I also call upon UKIP leader Nigel Farage to distance his party from these views and to withdraw his support for Cllr Gillick.
Cllr Gillick should do the honourable thing and fall upon his sword, except that I doubt whether his bigotry allows his vocabulary to extend as far as honour./rant yes it's a rant incensed fostering children in care ukip nigel farage who cares trust
