This week's WTF??

From Britain:

Emma Knightley, 25, and Kimberley Wildman, 27, turned up at the 'Making Links' playgroup with their children Imogen, 21 months, and Olivia, 18 months.

But they were stunned when organisers at the centre in St Neots, Cambs., ordered them to leave after being asked 'what country are you from' and they answered "British".

The best friends were told that only foreign mums and children are welcome at the council-funded playgroup…

Local mothers try to get their kids into the playgroup because it is free — i.e., financed through taxes by the very Britons who are not allowed to take part.

Making Links, which is based at the Priory Centre in St Neots, is funded by a £1,000 annual grant from St Neots Town Council. …

The aims of the project are to "develop cross-cultural friendships", "promote cultural identity and self-esteem" and "promote community relationships with local service providers".
