A MILITANT teacher and union official was last night under investigation for suggesting Conservatives are better off dead.
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.
