Three-year-olds being labelled bigots by teachers as 250,000 children accused of racism

Teachers are being forced to report children as young as three to the authorities for using alleged ‘racist’ language, it was claimed last night.

Munira Mirza, a senior advisor to London Mayor Boris Johnson, said schools were being made to spy on nursery age youngsters by the Race Relations Act 2000.

More than a quarter of a million children have been accused of racism since it became law, she said.

Writing in Prospect magazine, she said: ‘The more we seek to measure racism, the more it seems to grow.

‘Teachers are now required to report incidents of racist abuse among children as young as three to local authorities, resulting in a massive increase of cases and reinforcing the perception that we need an army of experts to manage race relations from cradle to grave.

‘Does this heightened awareness of racism help to stamp it out? Quite the opposite. It creates a climate of suspicion and anxiety.’

The Act compelled 43,000 public authorities, including schools and churches, ‘to promote good relations between persons of different racial groups’. Details of the incidents are logged on databases.

Teachers are allowed to report racism even if the alleged ‘victim’ was not offended or if the child does not understand what they were saying.

Freedom of Information replies obtained by civil liberties group the Manifesto Club show that between 2002 and 2009, 280,000 incidents have been reported.

A gang of Lithuanian squatters are moving into people's homes and changing the locks while they are out.

George Pope, 72, took his dogs for a walk and returned to find a family had moved in and changed the locks.

And now it has emerged Angie Belalij, 37, also lost control of her home when illegal tenants allegedly moved in after she left to allow renovation work to go ahead.

Police and the council say they are powerless to act unless they have a court order requiring the squatters to be evicted.

The deadlock leaves the authentic residents in limbo and facing a potentially costly court battle to reclaim their own home.

They fear bogus estate agents are watching their homes and waiting for them to go away before moving in illegal tenants.

Mrs Belalij, a mother-of-one, was having her home in Barking renovated and so moved out.

But when she returned, she says she found a family of Lithuanians had moved in. They have now been living there for five months.

'I went round to see the builders and we found squatters in the house,' she told the Express.

'When I said to them "Why are you here, this is my house", they got in my face shouting at me that they had rented it and they had rights.'

Distraught: Pensioner George Popeoutside his home in Barking

A picture taken outside the property yesterday showed a young woman clutching a sharp kitchen knife, leaning over the gate.

Mrs Belalij says the squatters claimed they were paying £600-a-month to live there.

A printed notice stuck to the window cites the Criminal Law Act 1977 and threatens to prosecute anyone who enters without permission.

Because the squatters have refused to leave, they can only be evicted if the residents go to court.

George Pope also from Barking, had a similar problem when he took his dogs for a walk and returned home to find a family had moved in.

The pensioner, who suffers with arthritis, felt ill while he was out and stayed at a friend's house until he was well enough to return.

When he went back to the council house last week, he could not get inside because the locks had been changed.

Landlords cannot legally evict squatters without going to court. Police and councils have no power to act so even though squatters have no legal right to stay, you cannot physically remove them.

Landlords will have to pay up to £1,500 in legal fees to fund civil action.

Homeowners can go to the country court and apply for an interim repossession order if they do so within 28 days of their home being taken over.

A judge may grant an order which must then be served on the illegal tenants. If they refuse to move within 24 hours, they can be arrested.

The order is not permanent and a hearing will then be held before a judge to decide rightful ownership.

He claims a man then walked up the path to his house and accosted him.

'I said, "This is my place". But he said, "This is our property and we intend to stay here unless you go to court". It made me feel ill.'

He added: 'I have been shaking ever since. I get panic attacks. It's just terrible.'

Mr Pope immediately called the council and police but he was told the new occupants could not be evicted because they were themselves the victims of a scam.

The pensioner said police told him the residents had paid £3,000 to a bogus estate agent to rent the property themselves for six months.

The retired Dagenham Ford worker, who was forced to stay with friends, said: 'Police told me it looked like a civil matter. But the squatters were using my home, my gas and my electricity - it's absolutely disgraceful.'

Mr Pope went back to his house on Monday morning to find all his belongings had been thrown out.

'I had been out for just two-and-a-half days. Someone must have been watching me,' he said. 'The rear door had been levered out with screwdrivers - that's how they got in.

'My neighbours are now too frightened to go out anywhere in case the same happens to them,' he added.

Mr Pope has finally managed to take back control of his house after the squatters fled but he no longer wants to lives there because of the experience.

The squatters have also allegedly stolen his washing machine, cooker, bed clothes and wall clock.

He said: 'The houses all around the area are being taken over by squatters. It is some sort of scam through some sort of estate agent. It's frightening.'

A Barking and Dagenham council spokesman said: 'This was a highly unusual situation and we are working closely with the police to try and determine exactly what happened.

'By taking quick action we have been able to restore Mr Pope to his home without the need to apply to court for an eviction notice. This would have been a very lengthy process.

'We are also aware of a housing association property in this street that is also being squatted.

'We have contacted the housing association concerned and have asked them to try and resolve the situation. We are extremely pleased that Mr Pope is back in his own home.'

A Met Police spokeswoman said: 'Police are investigating a civil dispute where there may have been fraudulent sub-letting of the premises.

'Anyone with information concerning the person who has fraudulently advertised this property for rent and subsequently changed the locks should contact Barking and Dagenham Police.'

Much that I agree with some of your posts I must take issue with you constant slagging off of the British people.
Sure the country is totally fucked up, we can all agree on that, so what is the point of being so bloody negative?

The BNP is in its death throes so lets move on. Blaming the British people will get us nowhere. We have a huge problem with benefit culture and sheer idleness by our own people and that needs to be tackled as well as the threat of Islam.

What we really need is a radical party that has no, and I mean NO baggage that the MSM can beat us with and members that have a decent standard of education.
Sorry if that sounds a bit elitist, but it's the truth, fight fire with fire.

Simply fighting amongst ourselves and not taking responsibility is a sure fire way to defeat.

We need our own Geert.

Best wishes,

This seems to be a problem inherent with all the 'isms. Its the old witch finder general story again isn't it. There are so many salaries relying on finding these nasty biggots and rapists that now attention has been turned to the under tens. Next thing you know infants will be branded paedophiles for holding hands and playing kiss catch in the school ground.

There is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that if what is happening everyday in our Country , happened for one day alone, no more than 20 years ago, the Scum that are know as parliamentarians would have a noose around their necks in a flash!!

That there is no doubt over.

Now, if any of you , "oooooooh that's terrible" Britons are out there and read this, you need to grow back your bollox now and help forge serious alliances between our people fast.So that we are all properly connected and completely supporting each other as mass.

Link all social net working, face book accounts, all Nationalist Blogs,chat accounts, all protest groups, EDL,DL,SDL, church groups,Community groups, Neighbourhood watch, everything you can think of and plan for proper sanctions against the filth that so called Govern us.

That's right , Sanctions from simply not going to work for one day, to not watching tv, to not paying council Tax, to down right organised Lawful Rebellion against the filth that has deliberately betrayed our people and Soveriegnty; The People!! From financial, to political lobbying.

We need strategic organised thinkers to move forward fast, before we are all living every day of our lives in complete fear !!

Its simple folks, we just need organised protest in mass .
