Alissa Cook-Gray, 17, expressed in class that she admires Tommy Robinson and what he is doing to fight for daughters and women in Britain. The political debate took place on the first day of their art and employability course, according to StokeonTrentLive.
Her classmates were sharing of their support for Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn when she shared her support of Tommy and that she identifies more with ring-wing ideologies. After sharing her views, a teacher told her: “Get out, we don’t want people with your views.”
Alissa felt she had no choice but to quit her course at Total People in Crewe, Cheshire, having only been in an hour of lessons, and is “terrified” to go back.
Miss Cook-Gray chose the course as a “fresh start” hoping to gain her qualifications in maths and English prior to taking an apprenticeship.
She says: “The tutor said she would have a word with the others but when I went in I felt quite uncomfortable because of what happened.”
