X-Factor Winner To Be Forced Out Of The UK Days After Glorious Win

X-Factor winner Dalton Harris will soon be forced to leave the country just days after his win.

The singer is set to fly back to his hometown of Jamaica because his visa only allowed him to stay for the duration of the ITV competition.

The complications have sparked fears 24-year-old Dalton won’t be able to perform on the upcoming tour or start recording his first album.

However, show bosses are working to come up with a new visa that’ll let him stay.

Dalton said: “I need to get a new visa. I will have to leave the UK for a bit as you’re not allowed to just stay for ever.

“Hopefully my visa will be sorted out quickly,” he told The Sun.

The singer flew over from the Caribbean to audition for the judges at the start of summer.

He previously opened up about his tough childhood, saying he was raised in poverty – one of at least 22 siblings.

Dalton, who now has no relationship with his mum or dad, scraped a living by painting houses and recycling school jotters by carving them into love hearts to sell as diaries.

His gift for singing, first spotted at Sunday school when he was seven, paved his escape.

Over the weekend 7.5million viewers watched Dalton be crowned the winner of the 2018 series of the X Factor.

In the final he performed a rousing rendition of the Power of Love alongside past winner James Arthur.

After triumphing over competitors Anthony Russell and Scarlett Lee , Dalton has now bagged himself a recording contract with Syco Records – Simon Cowell’s label owned by Sony.

The Jamaican-born star was the odds on favourite to win the show and his debut single is now 3-1 to be Christmas Number One with bookmakers Coral.

Black Schoolgirl Branded Racist And Suspended For Daring To Ask Questions About Remembrance Day

A Black schoolgirl has been suspended by her school for asking why slavery isn’t commemorated unlike the war

The schoolgirl who questioned why she should care about Remembrance Day when so many white people don’t care about the effects of slavery or Black History Month, has been punished for expressing these views, her mother said.

The girl, who attends St Michael’s College in Southwark, South East London, is understood to have been suspended for two weeks and sent to a pupil “referral unit” .

Cherie Johnson, the unnamed girl’s mother, told Operation Black Vote: “A number of school staff members labelled my daughter a racist, ”

In fact it’s been found they even lied that she distributed racist material.

Mrs. Johnson’s daughter displayed a poster at her school which read:

“37 million people died during WW1, but 60 million people died during slavery. Why should I care about remembrance, when they can’t show any respect for us during Black History Month.”

The schoolgirl, who is due to sit her exams, has been accused of vandalising school property (just for writing on a sheet of paper) , distributing material with inappropriate (for asking a question) and (for speaking the truth) offensive language (so called ” hate speech”) and behaviour contrary to the ethos of the college.

Johnson said: “What do I do? My child is at a critical age, exams around the corner, and now this. The school called me up and said that my daughter was sending racist material around the school, but this is not racist it’s just a reflection of what some young people feel. It’s challenging but, how is this racist?”
