UK: School cancels talk by Milo Yiannopoulos after counter-extremism unit called

miloA school has cancelled a talk by a right-wing journalist linked to Donald Trump after receiving advice from the Government’s counter-extremism unit.

Milo Yiannopoulos, an outspoken conservative and senior editor for the ‘alt-right’ website Breitbart that backed Mr Trump’s US election campaign, was due to address the Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys, which he attended as a child.

But the Canterbury school announced today that it had received advice from the Department for Education (DfE) to call off his visit tomorrow due to safety concerns.
