I UNDERSTAND that the current head of Woodroffe School has decided to resign, as a result of the reaction to some comments passed regarding Brexit, during a school assembly.

All my children were pupils at the school over the last 28 years.

I cannot say that Dr Steward has been someone with whom I frequently agree, in fact the reverse. However the pettiness of vilifying an individual for what was certainly light-hearted comments, is ridiculous.

Where have we arrived that voicing an opinion either in jest or in all seriousness is no longer acceptable.
