A TEENAGER was kicked out of her college class for supporting right-wing activist Tommy Robinson.
Alissa Cook, 17 was discussing politics with her fellow students who were mostly Jeremy Corbyn supporters and pro-Labour.
When asked who she admired, Alissa responded that she liked right-wing activist Tommy Robinson, who was recently jailed by the state for his political beliefs and is a vocal opponent of Islam.
Alissa said she supported our Tommy and was told by a teacher ‘get out, we don’t want people with your views’. She said she was then given a final warning for being ‘too right wing.’
“I was given a final warning for being too right wing. It was the first day and we were all having a conversation when Jeremy Corbyn came up, I asked people not to get into it because it was filled with a room of lefties.
Alissa added: “the teacher said ‘get out, we don’t want people with your views’. I was given a final warning for being too right wing.”
Alissa has revealed that she now feels ‘terrified’ to return to her course and has taken the decision it wasn’t for her, quitting after just over an hour of lessons.
Alissa decided to take the course at the training centre as a ‘fresh start’ where she hoped to gain her qualifications in maths and English before taking an apprenticeship.
She added: “The tutor said she would have a word with the others but when I went in I felt quite uncomfortable because of what happened.
“Everyone should be allowed to have their own opinion but I felt mine was just shot down. I’m terrified and I don’t want to go back.”
Alissa’s dad Gareth Cook said the training centre should not discriminate people whether it is about race, religion, or their political views.
The 38-year-old said: “I’m absolutely fuming at what happened and they should not have turned around and said she might not be able to continue with the course.
“She had to sit there and put up with opinions she doesn’t agree with and they only reacted like this because it’s Tommy Robinson. I’m a big fan and think the guy is a legend but this is how people react when they hear his name.”
