This granny was told she couldn’t vote for Brexit because she was ‘inappropriately dressed’ (photos)

68 year old Granny and passionate Brexit supporter Teresa Hicks, says polling staff told her yesterday she was inappropriately dressed and so wasn’t allowed to cast her ballot.
The Grandmother who wore Union Jack glasses and flags attached to a headband claims she was told the police would be told unless she left immediately.
 
Teresa said: “I was just in the queue and this man came up to me and said ‘you are inappropriately dressed’ so I asked if they’d send somebody away with a burka on?
“I even offered to put a coat around the poster which I had around my waist but they just said ‘no’.
“I went outside but the same man told me if I didn’t leave leave the premises he was going to call the police.
“I did leave but it wasn’t right.
“I think it’s disgusting.
 “I went back a short time later.
“I took the banners off but kept everything else on.
“There were a few people in the queue this time and the same man came over to me.
He said ‘I told you this morning you can’t come in like that’.
“He went over and talked to some other staff but they let me vote.
“I can’t believe I had to go through all this just to vote.
“It’s my right.
“This referendum is not like voting in the local elections – this vote on the EU is so important.
“Say I was Indian and I was in a Sari would they turn me away?
“If someone was in a Burka would they sent them away?
“I think it was discrimination.”
