Universities are not public spaces.
It boils down to on one side - students who are deciding who and who not should be allowed into their places of learning to speak and on the other - people who are under misapprehension that Universities are public forums where anyone should be able to stand up and talk about anything no matter how offense the majority of the students find it.
I think if we grasp the points that Universities are not public spaces and that students have a right to decide who comes onto their campus to speak we may be getting somewhere.
No one is denying anyone free speech in this, students are denying some people a platform to exercise their free speech as is their right
As I pointed out just like the BBC News deny me a platform to reply to their righty crap at the end of every Kuenssberg piece to camera
In fact the BBC have less right to do that because I pay my bloody license fee
