    Default teacher listed UKIP as a racist organisation during Bristol school lesson

    9403253 large - teacher listed UKIP as a racist organisation during Bristol school lesson

    A Bristol school has apologised after a teacher listed UKIP as a racist organisation during a lesson. Bridge Learning Campus in Hartcliffe says it was an error for the mainstream party to be named alongside far-right groups the British National Party and English Defence League during a class discussion about community relationships and tolerance.


    The blunder caused uproar among UKIP representatives in the city, with the party's councillor for Hengrove calling for an investigation to be conducted.


    Beneath the list of groups on a slide headed The Rise Of Racist Groups, shown to pupils on Wednesday, was the following: "You have the right to believe what you want - but if you have racist ideas and discriminate against a group of people - THEN YOU ARE A RACIST."


    Michael Frost, who is Bristol's first UKIP councillor, representing Hengrove ward, said: "Was it a deliberate attempt to link UKIP to far right and extremist groups like the EDF and the Neo Nazis, and show a political bias?
