Lucy Preston has previously said she wants to “punch some Tories in the t*ts” — and praised her pupils for drawing former PM David Cameron as a monster.

The striking National Education Union has now launched a probe after being approached by the Sun.

Ms Preston, a committee member of the Tower Hamlets branch in East London, could be kicked out if a meeting of bosses finds against her.

Last week the Corbynista posted a photo of a placard saying: “The only good Tory is a dead Tory.

“The only good Lib Dem is a dead Lib Dem.”

She praised her “student of the week” who made it.

Tory MP Brendan Clarke-Smith, an ex-teacher, said Ms Preston’s remarks drove “a coach and horses” through the NEU’s claims to be politically neutral.

Ms Preston apologised, saying: “I should not have used such language and would not do so again, and I unreservedly apologise.”

A union spokesperson said: “The NEU in no way condones the use of violent language or imagery.”

It confirmed it is investigating.
