Student ban free speech on campus: the University crisis
Great work from Spiked, which has released its annual survey of free speech at universities. Using a three-tier traffic light system, where red indicates that free speech stops here, nearly two thirds of student unions and one quarter of university administrations earn a red light.
When did students become such prudes?
Oxford University – a ban for No Offence, a magazine devoted to celebrating free speech
University of East Anglia – banned a restaurant from handing out free sombreros lest it offend Mexicans.
Newcastle University – a ban on dressing up as Caitlyn Jenner
London South Bank University – a ban on blasphemy
It’s all pathetic. The next generation of know adult politicians, councillors and administrators are even bigger fear-mongers and censors than the current crop.
