    Mother 'Not Clever Enough to Raise Child'

    A couple who fled to Ireland after social workers threatened to remove their baby at birth have had the newborn snatched after all.

    Kerry Robertson, 17, who has mild learning difficulties, and Mark McDougall, 25, went on the run after British social services said she was not clever enough to raise a child.

    But just four days after Ben was born, Irish social workers marched into the maternity ward and forced them to hand him over.

    They were told they were acting at the behest of their British counterparts.

    The couple, from Fife, Scotland, have been on the run for three months.

    In September, their wedding was halted just 48 hours before the service when social workers claimed Miss Robertson was not bright enough to understand the marriage declaration.

    Then in November they were told that her ‘disability’ meant their baby would be taken away at birth.

    With Miss Robertson 29 weeks pregnant, they fled their house in the middle of the night and travelled to Ireland.

    Ben was born healthy and weighing 7lb 3oz last Friday.

    Last night Miss Robertson said: ‘When the Irish social workers said I had to give the baby to them, I felt sick.

    ‘I didn’t want to hand him over and I started crying because I couldn’t believe what they were saying. I thought I had misunderstood.

    ‘I had just been breastfeeding him.

    Just before they took him away, I told Ben I loved him and gave him a kiss.’

    Mr McDougall added: ‘Kerry let out a dreadful cry when she realised what was happening – it was terrible. She is just in pieces.

    ‘We believed that the Irish had more traditional values than social workers in the UK. We found a two-bedroom cottage in a beautiful village in Waterford overlooking the sea.

    What are the chances they (Social Services) will give the baby to a homsexual couple?

    Race law, many immigrants are very retarded yet they can have as many children as they want and keep them.

    Baby Returned to Mother

    The Moses basket sits beside the bed, its new blankets carefully arranged awaiting its owner's arrival.

    Piles of newborn baby clothes - mostly in shades of blue - lie neatly folded on a chair.

    Like any new mother, Kerry Robertson spent weeks excitedly preparing for her first child's arrival - and yet 13 days after his birth, all the carefully arranged baby paraphernalia remains unused.

    And yet today Kerry and her partner, Mark McDougall, 25, will finally be able to lay their son Ben down to sleep in the basket they bought for him with such hope.

    Kerry, who has mild learning difficulties, and Mark went on the run from their home in Fife, Scotland, last November after British social services said she was not clever enough to raise a child.

    They hoped that by escaping to Ireland they would be left alone to be a family together. But when Ben was four days old, social workers caught up with them, marching into the maternity ward and forcing them to hand him over.

    Only after a court hearing last Friday were the parents told they will get their child back - albeit under supervision.

    Today, Kerry will move into a mother and baby unit where the 17-year-old will be under constant surveillance - but that is undoubtedly the lesser of two evils for the couple, given that they feared they might lose custody of the child they fought so hard to keep.

    Technically speaking, if a person is mentally disabled, they aren't exactly in the ideal position to bring a child into this world, chances are that it might be retarded itself.

    However, with the other partner evidently being of normal intelligence, the child is not necessarily itself mentally challenged, and certainly there'd be no need for the child to be taken away --- a quick formality of custody for the father, who still lives with the child mother could prevent such cases of social services stepping in.

    It is good to hear that, even though perhaps not the most eugenic example of procreation, two loving Scottish parents have their baby child back. When at all practicable it is always best that a child grow up with its biological parents, and one bright parent ought to do.

    Like the state didn't have any other problems but to take away indigenous children from their parents because one's not quite as bright as the other. Chances of the kid, had it stayed taken away from them, growing up with a Black Jewish Transgender Lesbian couple (ya, it technically does exist! ) could just as well have been this young boy's fate.

    Curiously and perversely, if this wasn't Scotland, but Germany, the child's father could have been criminally charged with a sexual crime as well: Sleeping with the mentally retarded is IIRC classed as "Verführung Unmündiger" and is treated as akin to paedophilia.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I expect that it is a crime in Scotland also - but it probably depends on the degree of retardation. There are plenty of people who are considered somewhat "slow", but do not need extra protection by the law. After all, there is a continuous scale of intelligence, from the totally retarded, to the highly intelligent.
