Free speech can't just apply to those you agree with
by Brendan O'Neill
Finally, the Stepford Students, those safe-spaced, spoilt-brat censors of anyone who thinks differently to them, have had their comeuppance. Following an outburst of Twitterfury, Warwick Students' Union (WSU) has backed down on its ban on Maryam Namazie, an Iranian-born secularist and stinging critic of Islamobollocks.
Having initially said Ms Namazie could not darken Warwick's campus with her dangerous arguments against, err, religious intolerance and in favour of liberty and democracy, WSU has now said she is welcome.
Anyone who thinks universities should be sites of open and sometimes rowdy debate should welcome WSU's climbdown as a strike for freedom and a blow against the stiff, prim, censorious misanthropes who govern 21st-century student life.
