...newspaper has this week been highlighting the case of a middle-aged couple banned from adopting their own grandchildren, and forced to see them adopted by two men, who are unknown to the family. The grandparents are not elderly, and have been caring for the children since their daughter went astray (drugs, unsuitable men, etc etc) and it seemed sensible for the local Social services to formalise this arrangement - the daughter, recognising her own deficiencies, was also keen. But no - political correctness prevailed, and the children will be handed over to the men, (whom they do not yet know but to whom they are being introduced week by week) and who are in a formal Civil-Partnership-style arrangement.
There is particular concern for the little girl, who would like to have a mother/grandmother around as she grows up.
What is happening to our country?
