Stolen By G...

Irish police have handed back one of the children taken from Roma families over the last couple of days. DNA samples were taken from both the child and the family, although it is as yet unclear whether the samples were used in determining that the child was non-Aryan enough to be returned. The family of a seven-year-old girl removed on Monday are still awaiting results; the girl has blonde hair and blue eyes, which no doubt explains the family's residency in a "quiet suburban street with nearly kept gardens", rather than the usual wooden crate on four piles of bricks. Although the family home has apparently suffered spontaneous pre-emptive reprisals from concerned locals, it is to be hoped that the case will not result in a whole community being held responsible: I'm sure not every garda is a child-snatcher.

Update And now they've handed back the girl as well. Apparently they believed she was in danger because she was Aryan and had Roma parents; fortunately, they believed it in good faith.

    My dark haired parents managed to churn out 4 blonde children. We were asked all the time if we were adopted but no one offered to rescue us.

    My own garden is "nearly kept" as well - but only nearly; the bugger insists on growing.

    Oops. And I can't correct it now, because I never kick a joke when it's down.
