Rotherham’s UKIP Child-Catcher Joyce Thacker
Follows Common Purpose’s Progressive Agenda

There is no doubt that the children removed from the foster care of a UKIP supporting couple are just the latest victims of the culture war being waged by so-called “progressives”. Marxists and Fabians have long waged war on the traditional family since the days of George Bernard Shaw when he wrote in “Socialism and the Family” that socialism…

…intervenes between the children and the parents, claiming to support them, protect them, and educate them for its own ampler purposes. Socialism, in fact, is the State family. The old family of the private individual must vanish before it, just as the old water works of private enterprise, or the old gas company. They are incompatible with it. Socialism assails the rampant egotism of the family today… So far as English Socialism is concerned … I must confess that the assault has displayed a quite extraordinary instinct for taking cover, but that is a question of tactics rather than of essential antagonism.

The antagonism between progressive ideologues and traditional families continues to this day, the obsessive efforts to normalise and celebrate non-traditional family structures, the relentless drive to have the state takeover the bringing up of young children so that both parents can be expected to work. The perverse incentives of the tax and welfare system undermining marriage not to mention the rendering of the concept of marriage legally meaningless by legislating for same-sex marriages which can not produce children. All these policies are part and parcel of a progressive imperative stemming from a mindset which understands consciously or unconsciously that the traditional family is the fundamental building block of societies which are incompatible with progressive values. Today’s progressives have changed their language not their essential antagonism to the family.

How is this relevant to the UKIP foster parents having the children in their care removed? Rotherham Social Services said “We would not have placed these children with you had we known you were members of UKP because it wouldn’t have been the right cultural match.” If the implicitly small ‘c’ conservative nature of a family antagonises progressives, how much more horrifying for them are parents openly opposed to progressive values. Joyce Thacker, who had a car-crash interview on the Today programme this morning, is the council’s Strategic Director of Children and Young People’s Services. Thacker is yet another graduate of the Common Purpose organisation which pursues a “we know best” Fabian-style progressive agenda in the public sector. She was a project advisor for a pilot programme, run by Common Purpose, that was concerned with diversity issues in the West Yorkshire area. Something tells Guido she has an axe to grind in this and is not a neutral public servant…

    What an absolute disgrace of a woman and a council. They should be ashamed…but they will trot along with their heads held high, mouthing the words…’We were right’. Well, I’ve got news for you…you were wrong!!

          See the odious Ed Militwat actually condemned this totalitarian council. Yet Labour has been instrumental in bringing about this culture, aided by the BBC and Guardian, where anybody believing anything other than left-wing fantasies about multiculturalism and immigration is considered fair play for harassment, imprisonment and now having their family broken up by the state.

          A few more decades of immigration and nobody will care any more as the state kidnaps children because their parents are patriotic and then the likes of Militwat will not complain.

            It is more than just councils. Look at every body that the government has described as “arms length”. All it means is that the government refuses to govern, and has relinquished control to the courts. In other words there are no checks and balances.

            The courts are not available to the average person, especially with regard to controlling public functions. Look at the recent statement on Judicial reviews. Even if they could be afforded they are now deemed unrequired and a waste of time by this government.

            Removing both democratic, and legal controls, of these organizations just breeds extremism. The result is that they now allow services only to those of the same political ideals as themselves.

            In our case, we just simple disagreed with a public body, and without any use of the courts they removed the use of that service. Sadly time proved us correct with tragic results. Now we are threatened with solicitors letter when we disclosed the issues to others.

      UKIP now are consistently beating the Lib Dems in national polls so expect much more of this type of attack on UKIP from the BBC (remember how they cut them out of the London Mayoral hustings), Guardian, loony lefties, local government, Harriet Harman and the rest.

      The link to the radio interview showed an absolute cretin who was, despite calling others the name, the very definition of an extremist and a dangerous one, the odious Miss Thacker – what on earth are the “ethnic” needs of the children? What struck me was that she was open that she wanted the children brought up to believe in multi-culturalism and mass immigration and UKIP have the temerity to disagree.

      Credit to the BBC this time – the interviewer pointed out that UKIP are mainstream and was critical of this outrageous and totalitarian moron.

      The situation is neither new, nor will it go away easily!

      Some 23 years ago I was asked to mentor and edit a close friend’s thesis on Social Welfare. There are strict rules, governing such educational aid for degrees so I made contact with the Uni concerned and submitted myslf to their appraisals and indoctrination…………

      Guido’s analysis is 100% on the button!

      The first fact, made knwn to me about those degrees is that CONSERVATIVES are seldom awarded such degrees (wrong POLITICS!)

      When we got on to the syllabus, it was obvious that RACIAL PREJUDICE is one of the major components of such degrees. To this end, the Uni concerned, had contracted out the modules to a Theatrical Company for presentation and dramatisation.

      UNFORTUNATELY THE MODULES CONTAINED NO HISTORICAL REFERENCES!

      When I checked this out, the Uni agreed……….. AS THE SORT OF EXAMPLE REQUIRED DOES NOT EXIST IN UK HISTORY!!!!!!!!!!! (they do elsewhere)………

      iN FACT MOST OF THE UNI SYLLABUS IS BASED ON MYTH!!!!!!!!!

      Social Service Degrees have no substance!

      ” I have met Joyce Thacker on a few occasions, whilst she was head of Bradford youth service. At the moment there is an a yet to emerge story regarding grooming and child abuse in the Bradford/ Keighley area that is equal to if not bigger than the terrible events in Rotherham (see Anne Cryer MP, who has been vocal on this) Joyce Thacker oversaw the stopping of prosecutions, the stopping of the ‘groming and let the repeated rapes carry on…they still are going on.

      She had a reputation with staff as someone who would attack them in a brutal manner if they had the temerity to challenge her. I know that one of her lines was that if staff mentioned abuse by asian men, they would be dismissed for racism. As you can imagine, they were not happy bunnies, as some staff were working directy with victims.

      Mrs Thacker has a track record in colluding with and covering up abuse.She shoud face criminal prosecution for this collusion. She has little professional experience or training in child protection. In Bradford she left a ‘disrupted,’ youth service and a general atmosphere of fear regarding senior management

      I worked for a charity project, and viewed with horror, her actions
      (in-actions!) and was disturbed when she got the job in Rotherham.Mabye
      she got the job as she is skilled in cover up, blaming others and
      dodging the bullets.

      A word of warning; Joyce will be swift and nasty when challenged,
      blaming anyone and smearing them as much as she can. If she was profiled
      by a psychologist, the report would match that of a sociopath.”

    Whole streets were declared slums in order to break up these communities so the Labour councils could control working class housing and who got it.

    Michael Young’s ‘East End family and Kinship’ is the handbook for this cultural cleansing.

    Think of the hard-Left’s involvement in stoking the Brixton and Tottenham riots and the huge effort that they put into separating the races in London and convincing them they were so different they must live apart.

        The Rotherham UKIP candidate Jane Collins came second in the Barnsley by-election in 2011. Normally I wouldn’t think much of UKIP’s chances, but these are interesting times, with a Labour MP stepping down for sleaze, a widespread hatred of the main political parties and this perfect scandal less than a week before polling day… to cap it all, the Labour candidate is not local.

        Half the Rotherham Labour Party members walked out of the candidate selection meeting, because no local name was on the list. The selected candidate, Sarah Champion, seems to have a good CV but is from Manchester. I knew the other shortlisted Labour candidate, Sophy Gardner, many years ago in the RAF! No dirt, I’m afraid, she was pleasant enough as I recall.

I’m not in favour of gay marriage, but they should have equal rights to everyone else in the form of a parallel system like civil partnership, so the religious cretins can shut up about marriage losing its meaning. Any intelligent libertarian should be in favour of equal rights.

    Not for Joyce Thacker, the Advertiser reports that she will be asking South Yorkshire Police to start an investigation into who leaked the documents to the Times, a great pity she is not more interested in investigating the grooming gangs who abuse children.

    Joyce Thacker was head of Bradford youth service. At the moment there is an a yet to emerge story regarding grooming and child abuse in the Bradford/ Keighley area that is equal to if not bigger than the terrible events in Rotherham (see Anne Cryer MP, who has been vocal on this) Joyce Thacker oversaw the stopping of prosecutions, the stopping of the ‘groming and let the repeated rapes carry on…they still are going on. She had a reputation with staff as someone who would attack them in a brutal manner if they had the temerity to challenge her.One of her lines was that if staff mentioned abuse by asian men, they would be dismissed for racism. As you can imagine, they were not happy bunnies, as some staff were working directy with victims.Mrs Thacker has a track record in colluding with and covering up abuse.
    She shoud face criminal prosecution for this collusion.She has little professional experience or training in child protection.In Bradford she left a ‘disrupted,’ youth service and a general atmosphere of fear regarding senior management

      Well said CH.

      The BBC play a big part in this, their programs are of a revisionist nature, constantly altering or destroying our past, as, for example in a recent ‘cookery’ program, that was telling us that before the great supermarkets our food was bad and sold to us by unscrupulous shopkeepers, who did all they could to swindle us and sell us substandard goods.

      This has at least two many objectives: One it makes us distrust small shops, one of the basic British ways of life we have enjoyed for hundreds of years, which not only provided employment by a factor of 100 to 1 of the supermarkets, think of all the individual accountants, window cleaners, shop fitters, delivery men etc, that individual shops need as opposed to the supermarket. Small local shops also do away with the need for the car while providing social cohesion in small and medium sized areas.

      Our shared cultural history and knowledge is being constantly undermined and erased by the BBC, leaving us susceptible to whatever precarious subjectivities they are directed to replace it with.

    Rotherham for UKIP? says:

    Could UKIP do well in Rotherham? Until today the most energetic campaigning was being done by Respect. The thing is though only 5.7% of Rotherham’s Inhabitants were classed as Asian in the last census. Even if they all decide to vote Respect, there aren’t enough of them to make a significant difference. In Bradford West, a lot of the non-Muslims voted for Respect as they saw them as the only anti-establishment party to stand a chance against Labour. I’m pretty sure, this won’t be the case with Respect, who will do well and steal most of the Muslim vote from Labour.

    Mrs Thacker has provided UKIP with a large amount of publicity connected to Rotherham in the last 24 hours that could provide possible momentum for next Thursday especially if this row runs and runs. Labour in Rotherham seem to be near to collapse, with most of the local party refusing to go on the stump for their candidate due to said candidate not being local. This could be UKIPs best opportunity yet to win a by-election (or at least until the Chris Huhne reaches its climax and we find out if there’s a by-election in Eastleigh.

        According to various media sources the story gets worse(if it actually could get worse)as snippets start to surface. The children all white under 10(the youngest under 6 months)are allegedly of Polish ethnicity. The couple have been on Rotherham Children Services list of approved Foster parents for 7 years. The male is in the naval reserve and the female is a trained nursery nurse. They have successfully fostered several children for Rotherham Children Services who speak highly of them and would foster children with them again(some debate about this as I have also seen reports saying they have been struck off list of registered foster parents by Rotherham Childrens Services) The female told sources that she actively encouraged the children to celebrate their ethnicity and encouraged them to speak their native language and to teach a her a few words too. They are NOT racist and have NEVER raised any doubts or prejudice about the children being of different ethnic background and actively embraced multicultural diversity. However in line with many thousands of people in the UK they support UKIP a legitimate and legal mainstream political party(they have never sought to impose their views on the children) and agree with the UK re-establishing immigration control(as many other countries around the world)and for the UK to have more say in its own affairs without interference from Europe There has never been any question raised until recently that their political affiliations or voting intentions in any way debarred them from being foster parents…if THIS is true and I can’t verify the truth of all the above as it may just be speculation/hype on the part of media etc then Thacker is toast and Rotherham Childrens Services have a huge problem of credibility and have to prove they have not contravened Art 9 & 14 of Human Rights Act and the Equality Act .

    I have met Joyce Thacker on a few occasions, whilst she was head of Bradford youth service. At the moment there is an a yet to emerge story regarding grooming and child abuse in the Bradford/ Keighley area that is equal to if not bigger than the terrible events in Rotherham (see Anne Cryer MP, who has been vocal on this) Joyce Thacker oversaw the stopping of prosecutions, the stopping of the ‘grooming and let the repeated rapes carry on…they still are going on. She had a reputation with staff as someone who would attack them in a brutal manner if they had the temerity to challenge her. I know that one of her lines was that if staff mentioned abuse by asian men, they would be dismissed for racism. As you can imagine, they were not happy bunnies, as some staff were working directy with victims.

    Mrs Thacker has a track record in colluding with and covering up abuse.
    She should face criminal prosecution for this collusion.

    She has little professional experience or training in child protection.

    In Bradford she left a ‘disrupted,’ youth service and a general atmosphere of fear regarding senior management

    I worked for a charity project, and viewed with horror, her actions (in-actions!) and was disturbed when she got the job in Rotherham. Maybe she got the job as she is skilled in cover up, blaming others and dodging the bullets.

    A word of warning; Joyce will be swift and nasty when challenged, blaming anyone and smearing them as much as she can. If she was profiled by a psychologist, the report would match that of a sociopath.

    Nothing that public bodies do these days surprises me in the least. I was sacked by Leeds City Council back in August for the following vague reason:

    “the council has concluded that your behaviours and values are so different from the council’s values, that this is a fundamental breach of your employment contract.”

    I can only conclude that my human rights work opposing sharia law with the International Civil Liberties Alliance represented the values that were so different.

    My anti-sharia work was conducted in my own time – those responsible for decisions in Rotherham seem to impose their own political beliefs as a matter of policy. If this is not policy then will the person(s) responsible be subject to disciplinary action in this clear case of discrimination? While at work I was completely impartial but this Rotherham case seems to indicate that senior officials are not able to leave their politics at the door. I still do not know the exact reasons for being sacked just the vague reason mentioned above.

    There really needs to be a national inquiry into abuses of power in the public sector!

        I hope that a successful outcome in my case will help prevent abuses of power by those who run public services. The Rotherham situation demonstrates that some senior officials seem to act like political commissars rather than public servants. If Common Purpose is playing the role that its critics suggest then it too needs to be fully investigated.

    Joyce Thacker lost a nuclear war with the ugly stick says:

    The number of young girls at risk of sexual exploitation in Rotherham has increased, the council has said. Last year the authority identified 50 potential victims with that figure increasing to 58 this year. Joyce Thacker, director for children and young people’s services, said the rise was down to an improved public awareness of the problem.

    In September The Times reported confidential police reports referred to widespread abuse of girls by Asian men. Ms Thacker said: “We monitor this all the time and at the moment we’ve got 58 young women who are known to us in terms of social care in relation to child sexual exploitation.

    In November 2010 five Asian men from Rotherham were jailed after being found guilty of grooming young girls for sex.

    I am going to ensure they soon have many male married couples to cater for such vulnerable children. Hopefully many Parki stani men will go through such wedding ceremonies to facilitate their caring responsibilities. After all, arranged marriages are favoured in their progressive community.

    In the interests of equality, it will be important that young girls are issued to such couples, to ensure that boys do not grow up in an all male environment.

    Public letter to Ed Miliband & David Cameron says:

    It’s sad, but true, that I have to agree with the 72 year old man who wrote this letter…. I notice there isn’t a reply though.
    Subject: LETTER TO DAVID CAMERON & ED MILIBAND

    This is one of the best letters I have read for a long time, it puts it ALL into perspective. PLEASE PASS IT ON to everyone you can, its time BOTH parties stood up and listened.
    This is our country and it’s being destroyed.

    Subject: The silent majority

    To David Cameron (Prime Minister) & Ed Milliband (Leader of the Opposition) …

    You BOTH Worry me ! ( In fact both of your Political parties worry the hell out of me !!!)

    Over the last three years, I find myself becoming more and more fearful of the pair of you, and between you, you are turning this country into a place that I no longer feel at home in, or feel a part of! I watch you in parliament, and no, not just the two of you, but every politician that I see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other, and acting like children !!! (..and if you were my children, I would be ashamed of you all … What an example to set!)

    Although you would like us all to believe that you are putting the needs of this country at the forefront, NEITHER of you are doing that, you seem more interested in “oneupmanship “, in scoring off each other, & denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country & its people !!! It seems to be all about YOU as individuals, and not about what you can DO for this country !
    It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize, as the place I always thought, was the best place in the world to be !!! But no longer !!!

    You are not listening to the people of this country !!!
    I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country, (and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most countries … REALLY ???) … And yet the gap is widening between the “haves” and the “have-nots” . I see our homeless on the streets, our hospitals under-funded, and understaffed, our health system is an absolute mess and a disgrace … And yet I see multi-millions of pounds being sent offshore, in aid to other countries, before attending to this country’s needs !

    I see the “selling off of water rights to foreign interests, WHY…? Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us that water is a finite resource, & supposedly, we must ALL be careful with how we use it, so that we ensure we have it for the future ? A Carbon Tax, ( which you KNOW is just another tax ) which will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon emissions, AT ALL!
    A tax, which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone, when other major countries will NOT & DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it !
    All that it will do for this country is put working families and small businesses behind the eight ball, …..what planet are you on, if you think that the tax we must pay will make even a scrap of difference to the effect of the carbon tax on people? Anyone can see the holes in that argument !!! Do you really think we are that dumb ???

    Let’s talk about Multiculturalism ……People have come here from other countries, for a better life, for more years than I have been alive ( I am 72 years old !)
    Pre & Post war immigrants came for a better life, and settled in and became wonderful contributors to this country, … all have contributed to the rich diversity of this country, and some descendants have even fought FOR this country, and they have become U.K.citizens and were glad to be …and they had NO handouts from our Government either, …they worked hard for everything!
    I have never before had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants coming here. However, I DO NOW !!!

    Please tell me why we have areas in towns and on large estates all over the country, where police do NOT, & will NOT go, for fear of their life ?
    Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools for fear of “OFFENDING” someone ? (The latest little gem is that they are not having or being funded, for chaplains any more, but Counsellors!)
    Please tell me why religious Christmas observances are no longer allowed in some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone ? Please tell me HOW Christmas decorations in some stores might OFFEND someone ? Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres for fear of “OFFENDING” someone ? Please tell me why we have some RADICAL clerics demanding Sharia Law in this country when if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed? Please tell me why our laws need to be changed, so as not to OFFEND someone ? Please tell me why we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own country, because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS ? Please tell me WHY Britons cannot legally wear a bike helmet covering their head in a bank and yet it is ok to wear a Burqa which covers the whole of the face ? And please tell me WHY, when those people who want asylum here can wreck our detention centres and STILL be accepted here ?

    What does that say about just who and what are this government’s priorities ?
    The British people that I speak to have genuine concerns about becoming a second class minority in our own country, and the reasons for it are some of the above. Are you so blind that you cannot see this ? And no, I am NOT racist !!! If I did not like Catholics or Protestants would I be considered racist ? Of course not!
    Why is it, that if we object to what is happening in our country we are immediately labelled RACIST, in an attempt to shut us up ?

    We are fighting Radical Muslims in Afghanistan & Iraq , are we not ? I hear you say, yes but the Muslims we have here are “Not like that ” . Well how would we know ? Do we hear ANY of them coming out & speaking AGAINST radicals ? I haven’t, have you ? Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Britain ! Are not the experiences of France and the Netherlands a examples of that? Why do you think it would be any different here ? We even have a British born “radical “, whose message is that Britain WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia Law, & that we had “better get used to it “.

    Will both of you grow some “balls”, and start sticking up for this country and its people ? We are the people who put you where you are and PAY you to look after our interests ! And you are NOT doing that by any stretch of the imagination !!! I would appreciate an answer from both of you, if only to convince me that once again I am not talking to a brick wall !
    In case it has escaped both of you I would like to remind you that, in the U.K. Government is FOR THE PEOPLE … OF THE PEOPLE … & BY THE PEOPLE … Never forget that because you sure have up till now !
    Let us get this out to all – please keep forwarding and if you have people in the press or if you know Politicians – let them know we are dis-satisfied with their behaviour !
    PLEASE SEND THIS GREAT LETTER TO AS MANY PEOPLE IN THE U.K. AS YOU CAN, AND IF YOU HAVE CONTACTS OVERSEAS DO THE SAME.

    November 10, 2012 at 2:46 pm

    I have met Joyce Thacker on a few occasions, whilst she was head of Bradford youth service. At the moment there is an a yet to emerge story regarding grooming and child abuse in the Bradford/ Keighley area that is equal to if not bigger than the terrible events in Rotherham (see Anne Cryer MP, who has been vocal on this) Joyce Thacker oversaw the stopping of prosecutions, the stopping of the ‘groming and let the repeated rapes carry on…they still are going on. She had a reputation with staff as someone who would attack them in a brutal manner if they had the temerity to challenge her. I know that one of her lines was that if staff mentioned abuse by asian men, they would be dismissed for racism. As you can imagine, they were not happy bunnies, as some staff were working directy with victims.

    Mrs Thacker has a track record in colluding with and covering up abuse.
    She shoud face criminal prosecution for this collusion.

    She has little professional experience or training in child protection.

    In Bradford she left a ‘disrupted,’ youth service and a general atmosphere of fear regarding senior management

    I worked for a charity project, and viewed with horror, her actions (in-actions!) and was disturbed when she got the job in Rotherham.Mabye she got the job as she is skilled in cover up, blaming others and dodging the bullets.

    A word of warning; Joyce will be swift and nasty when challenged, blaming anyone and smearing them as much as she can. If she was profiled by a psychologist, the report would match that of a sociopath.
