FIRED Prison Officer Tommy McAlpine who lost his job in a Scottish Prison after voicing support for right-wing activist Tommy Robinson, has spoken exclusively to Politicalite.
McAlpine, 30, was suspended earlier this year after he voiced support for recently freed right-wing activist Tommy Robinson in a Facebook post, he was later fired and is now appealing the decision.
He had worked for HMP Addiewell since 2008 and even risked his life protecting Muslim inmates and even had his car blown by a criminal gang.
A source inside the prison who asked not to be named exclusively told Politicalite last week that the prison guard ‘planned to spend his entire career there and that he loved his job.’
‘Tommy moved up the ranks to Senior Officer a few years ago was responsible for a staffing group of over 50 officers, a diverse group which included Muslims.’
The source said that even after Tommy’s car was firebombed, he went back to work on Monday and took no time off sick.”
“Tommy took no action against the prison and he didn’t try to claim money off them, he was loyal as f***.”
Since we published the story, it was seen by over 50,000 people and was shared over 24,000 times.
Tommy’s ordeal even went Stateside and was picked up in the states by Alex Jones’ InfoWars.
Tommy Robinson also saw the story, Tommy’s Facebook page said: “This is a disgrace. A prison officer, who spoke up for Tommy, in what he believed to be an injustice, has lost his job.
The court of appeal has, in fact, confirmed there was a major injustice committed, yet the prison still sacked him! Welcome to Britain, where the establishment have removed the right to free speech and clamp down on people who disagree with them.”
The prison insider told us that McAlpine has not been given an appeal date in the eight weeks since he lost his job.
Tommy spoke to exclusively to Politicalite and said whilst he couldn’t discuss the details due to the appeal, he was “overwhelmed by the support.”
“I just can’t get my head around how many shares and views its had… and I appreciate it, I really do!”
Tommy has since set up a GoFundMe page to help raise funds since he is now out of work.
He said: “I’m quite a proud person, I would be happy with just getting a job on similar money, but no one will give me the chance because of all the bad press.”
“I suppose it’s my pride that’s been saying no to the go fund me thing, but a friend of mine made me do it.”
He also thanked Politicalite and readers who have sent messages of support and shared his message on social media.
Tommy added: “I really appreciate you helping me and supporting me. I owe you a pint!”
The GoFundMe is in general support of Tommy after unfair dismissal from employment.
