    UK: Free speech deniers hitting the headlines
    Freedom; Posted on: 2007-11-25 12:34:18 [ Printer friendly / Instant flyer ]
    "Far left extremists are planning a protest outside the Union chamber tomorrow unaware of the irony that while they call the BNP and Nick Griffin “fascists”, it is they who are acting in a wholly unreasonable, anti-democratic manner worthy of that very label itself."

    News article filed by BNP news team

    The deniers of free speech are being smoked out of their hiding places in an absurd spectacle surrounding the decision of one of the country’s top universities to allow BNP leader Nick Griffin to address its debating society.

    Students at Oxford University’s debating society, the Oxford Union, have backed plans to allow the Union to host a debate tomorrow evening featuring Mr. Griffin and controversial historian David Irving. The topic is that of free speech itself.

    Luke Tryl, the society's president, told Sky News: "I do think it is quite ridiculous to say that this is just a publicity stunt. The reason the Oxford Union was founded 184 years ago was to promote and defend freedom of speech. This is what this debate is about. It is about an opportunity to challenge David Irving and Nick Griffin.”

    The decision taken amongst the student organisation itself has been attacked by the haters and the deniers of free speech.

    The Conservative MP for New Forest East Dr Julian Lewis has resigned his life membership of the august debating body saying that the students should be "ashamed". Dr. Lewis who is the shadow defence minister wrote to the Union saying he was terminating his membership "with great sadness".

    In a display of selective snobbery the Conservative MP is upset that Mssrs. Griffin and Irving are allowed access to this “privileged platform”.

    Inevitably there has been condemnation from the man who oversees the social engineering project of enforced racial integration Trevor Phillips the chairman of the Equalities and Human Rights Commission told BBC1's Andrew Marr Show: "I think it is an absolute disgrace. As a former president of the National Union of Students I'm ashamed that this has happened."

    Far left extremists are planning a protest outside the Union chamber tomorrow unaware of the irony that while they call the BNP and Nick Griffin “fascists”, it is they who are acting in a wholly unreasonable, anti-democratic manner worthy of that very label itself.
