‘Censorship, thought policing’: Mail’s Peter Hitchens blasts university after his talk is postponed
http://www.rt.com/uk/450909-hitchens-university-talk-postponed/





Conservative journalist Peter Hitchens has hit out at the University of Portsmouth after it postponed his talk because of his “unacceptable” opinions. He accused it of surrendering freedom of speech and rushing to silence dissent.

Hitchens was due to speak at the university on February 12, but its students’ union has announced that the Mail on Sunday columnist’s event will be delayed so that it does not clash with their month of LGBT+ celebrations.

They argue that Hitchen’s views “are not necessarily aligned with the... LGBT+ community.” The journalist has taken to social media to condemn the decision, accusing the university of taking on the role of the Orwellian thought police.



“Heaven help us when these people come into government, law and media in large numbers.”

The union’s president, Violet Karapaseva, has rejected Hitchen’s claims, insisting: “We are committed to ensuring freedom of speech on the University of Portsmouth campus.” Later, its Twitter account said that Hitchens has been asked to decide on some alternative dates to make his appearance, on the condition that “there is continued appetite for debate.”'
