    White Christian girl put into foster care with non-English speaking Muslim family

    And if it had been the other way round there would have been uproar.

    No. There's a desperate shortage of foster places, and Muslim children are placed with non-Muslim families if that's what's available. That goes for any religion, culture, whatever. Stop rabble-rousing

    Maybe but while most of the hand-wringing is about trivial things, it probably isn't doing a five year old any favours if they're placed with a family that doesn't (or won't) speak English.

    Not worth reporting in a newspaper really, but satisfies your average Daily Express reader, so that he can be "outraged".

    I'm alright Jack

    I recognise this is simply a one off case being highlighted.

    In terms of the reverse given we do take some refugee children who may be Muslim and therefore would be placed in an English speaking family probably because we are an English speaking country I guess.

    It's unlikely they don't speak English.

    It is common in multilingual households for adults to not always speak English to one another if their first language isn't English. Doesn't matter if the family is Greek, Spanish or whatever.

    If you don't grow up around it you think it's weird. If you do and happen to know enough adults who speak one language the trick is to learn enough so you can listen in on their conversations.

    Just to point out the first sentence:

    A white Christian girl was reportedly put into the care of a non-English speaking Muslim foster family where the mother wears a niqab.
    So no real hard facts then. One day it would be nice to see journalism reporting facts
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    The Indie quotes The Times.

    The Times probably got the report of Reuters, the PA etc.

    Great idea for a Channel 5 documentary though.

    Yep but Muslims tend to not be forgiving of other religions. I base that on their religion being a ****ed up version of some stone age controlling fairy tale that serves the sole purpose of controlling people.
