Police are probing racist graffiti which has been daubed outside a primary school in north London.

The graffiti, which read "WHITES NOW WELCOME", was daubed on a path leading to Prince of Wales Primary School in the London Borough of Enfield.

Hundreds of children saw the words but Enfield Council has said it has since been removed.

In typical PC speak which, as usual, seems to be partly, and so blatantly, far from the truth, it said: 'We have removed this graffiti as a matter of urgency.

'We have a large multicultural and harmonious community in Enfield which embraces its diversity.

'Racism of any form is unwelcome in this borough. We’d like to thank the school for bringing this matter to our attention and enabling us to deal with it promptly.'

Almost 10% of Enfield's 314,000 people are Muslim, and only around 40% are White British.

Last week a sign appeared outside Bartlett Park in Poplar, in the Islamic Bangladeshi Republic of Tower Hamlets (the East London borough where the vibrant and colourful political practices of Bangladesh continue to keep the returning officers entertained. Allegations of widespread intimidation of voters at polling booths, postal voting fraud and a huge number of mysteriously spoiled ballot papers during the re-election of Lutfur Rahman as its Independent mayor, who was kicked out of the Labour Party for his links to an Islamic extremist group, at the recent council elections; so much more fun than the usual dull, grey and mechanistic western electoral procedure, eh?) which read: 'Do not walk your dog here. Muslims don't like dogs. This is an Islamic area now.'

Labour Member of Parliament Jim Fitzpatrick alerted police and the local mayor about the sign after it was flagged up by one of the residents in his east London constituency.

Pupils as young as four were forced to walk over graffiti which read 'whites not welcome' when they arrived at school yesterday.

The message was found on the entrance path leading to Prince of Wales Primary School, in Enfield, north London.

Hundreds of children saw the words but Enfield Council has said it has since been removed.

Police are now also investigating the incident.

However, some parents claim this is not the first time graffiti on this nature has appeared at the school.

Mother Jasmin Nathan told the Evening Standard (external - login to view): 'I have two sons aged nine and six who both attend the school and my eldest immediately noticed it before I did and was very inquisitive about it, which broke my heart.

'I've been worried all day about how this may affect his school day or god-forbid, any conflict in the playground as children can be unintentionally very spiteful, especially when discussing things they don't have the mental capacity to understand.'

According to headteacher Jan Bless, other messages appeared along the same stretch of road.

He said: 'This was part of a wider graffiti trail which stretched about a quarter of a mile.

'We immediately contacted the police and local authority.

'It seems the person who did this felt like they needed to say something but this has no reflection on the school.

'Parents were very distressed and shocked. We are very disappointed. It's not something that was solely directed at the school.

'In my opinion someone felt they had something to say and unfortunately the school was along the path. The message does not reflect our school.'

A spokeswoman from Enfield Council said: 'We have removed this graffiti as a matter of urgency.

'We have a large multicultural and harmonious community in Enfield which embraces its diversity.

'Racism of any form is unwelcome in this borough. We’d like to thank the school for bringing this matter to our attention and enabling us to deal with it promptly.

'It is very difficult to prevent graffiti, but cases of graffiti in Enfield have dropped to an all time low in recent years.

'Our policy is to remove graffiti as rapidly as possible with a particular focus on removing offensive graffiti.

'We have reported this matter to the police who are investigating it.'

Labour Member of Parliament Jim Fitzpatrick alerted police and the local mayor about the sign after it was flagged up by one of the residents in his east London constituency.

Police say an investigation is now underway to find out who put it up.

Can't be racist. Only whites can be rascist.
