One in four students want Ukip members BANNED from speaking at university events

The data shows three-quarters of students at UK universities would ban, or ‘no-platform’, speakers whose views “offended” them.

And 27 per cent believe members of the anti-EU party led by Nigel Farage should not be invited to speak on their campus.

Critics said the research, from the Higher Education Policy Institute (Hepi), revealed “illiberal” views among undergraduates.

    Just call them the Young Fascist Alliance, or somesuch. It is a strong clue that their teachers are themselves Fascists, regardless of how they may self-identify.

    Meaning that three in four have no problem.
    Meaning: bog off, knicker-twisters.

      A good chunk of those who do object are probably foreigners.

        Good point.
        I like the use of the word “foreigners”. I wonder when it will be outlawed, along with “illegal aliens”, “convicted criminals” etc.?

    Most of them would join a protest mob but can’t be bothered to vote.
    The “remain” campaign has sent Eddie Izzard on a tour to persuade students to register to vote at their parents’ home town as they’ll probably be there for the referendum and not in their university town.

    An official political party, with a sitting Member in the House of Commons, three representatives in the House of Lords, and twenty-two Members of the European Parliament! One quarter of students want them banned! Well, one in four students are absolute imbeciles. One wonders how they made it to university, being abject morons and all.
