Toni McLeod is pregnant and her husband is a serving soldier in Afghanistan. For a short term, she was a member of the English Defence League.
Astonishingly, it is that prior membership that has caught the attention of British Social Services, who now say that Toni poses a threat to her unborn child because she may radicalize it.
In fact, this is so outrageous that she is being backed by a very liberal MP.
Her plight has been taken up by Lib Dem MP John Hemming who, despite his hatred for the EDL, brought the issue up in the Commons. He compared her treatment with Abu Qatada, the extremist Islamic cleric, who was allowed to stay with his children when he was remanded on bail earlier this year as the Government tries to deport him.
He said: “It raises a curious question as to why Abu Qatada is allowed to radicalise his children but the state won’t take the chance of allowing Toni McLeod to look after her baby in case she says something social workers won’t like.
“I am very strongly opposed to the EDL, which I believe to be a racist organisation, but I do not think we should remove all of the children of the people who go on their demonstrations, however misguided they may be.”
This is what happens when Islamic fundamentalists infiltrate the halls of power.
