I only know what I saw on the film on Newsnight, where they said it was becoming much more of a problem, and more and more debates were being affected by left wing activists determined to shut down any debate which disapproved of. There have been follow up reports, but I am sure you know that. It is all part of the new activist led Labour movement. How could you possibly think they were doing anything wrong. after all, they are your people.
And I did not say it was large scale. It is a few people at a few debates. How many does it have to be for it to be wrong?
So you admit what you have been posting is largely just fantasy, good, we are getting somewhere.
There are handful of cases of peaceful picketing of debates that did go ahead and a bit of shouting and a few people who either weren't invited or had invitations withdrawn, all of which has been going on for years in the rough and tumble of Student Union politics.
But now a pointy headed right wing ideologue at the Daily Mail has told you to get upset about it and like the good little drone you are you have dutifully got angry about it.
And your answer is to proscribe the freedom of speech of students so they have to debate what you and Mr Pointy Head want them to debate not what they wish to debate.
Well done you. Do you even think about what you are asking for here?
Your massive ignorance of Student Union politics over the last 50 years obviously shouldn't stop you having a view on this it just makes your view largely irrelevant and based on second hand spin from right wing extremists to whom you are simply a useful fool.
You would have hated the 70s and 80s it wasn't nice little Labour Students who were running Student Unions it was real fucking trots and revolutionary Marxists.
Students today are far more inclusive and liberal than they were in my day; you would have been tarred and feathered on most campuses up and down the country then rather than politely shown the door.
