Tory Students Targeted in Campus Free Speech Clampdown

Lincoln University students’ union has taken away control of its Conservative Society’s social media pages in the latest challenge to campus free speech. Tory students were accused of bringing their university into disrepute for tweeting about its woeful record on free expression. The heavy-handed student union responded and now the Tory group’s Facebook page has disappeared and the group has announced a two month Twitter hiatus. Lincoln MP Karl McCartney said:

“This intolerant, illiberal and totalitarian response is akin to something out of the Soviet Union or North Korea rather than a place for learning and debate. The loony-left has certainly taken over it seems at the University of Lincoln Students’ Union and this is another chapter in their knee-jerk desire to stifle debate which revealed itself as they began ‘no platforming’ people they don’t like including those who are democratically elected… the Students’ Union ‘snowflakes’ are so self-obsessed they forget Lincoln is the home to one of the original Magna Cartas, the foundation stone of freedom the world over.”

Guido couldn’t have put it better…
