Leicester Labour whip banned by city school

This blog first came across Barbara Potter as one of two Leicester Labour councillors who backed the return of the death penalty in August 2011:
"Bring it on. Give these murderers the option of the noose, the electric chair or lethal injection. I think the vast majority would back this campaign."
The Labour group whip was back in the news today. According to the Leicester Mercury she has been banned from a Leicester primary school (Humberstone Junior School) after falling out with teachers and governors.

There may be more to this story than meets the eye, but I suspect those teachers and governors do not appreciate Labour councillors and National Union of Teachers activists holding school-gate protests against plans for it to become an academy.
