The Exclusivity of Inclusivity
Yesterday Caroline Farrow, a Catholic journalist and member of the Free Speech Union, was no-platformed by the University of Exeter Debating Society. She was due to speak today in a debate on whether prostitution should be legalised, but she was notified at 11am yesterday that she’d been disinvited because of her religious beliefs on a range of LGBT issues. This is a clear case of no-platforming and a breach of the University of Exeter’s professed commitment to free speech. Following our intervention, Caroline Farrow has been re-invited and will be attending the debate as planned.
