It is the left that are against freedom of speech in universities and elsewhere.

A repeated left wing theme satirised by Orwell in Animal Farm.

I deliberately used the term Fascist Left (not one of my typos/auto corrections). It was an article, perhaps on this site, which talked about what name should be given to those on the extreme left who are anti free speech etc. Fascist Left was one of the suggestions. As you suggest it includes much of the Socialist Left but also other groups.

As i said Free Space needs defining so that educational institutions know what they are required to deliver.

No Platforming results in those at a university not being allowed to invite a speaker who they wish to hear and debate with. A requirement to allow Free Speech (suitably defined) would allow it.

I agree with you our government needs to push values more strongly. An issue raised by CG in the article. Nevertheless good to see Williamson starting on the issue of free speech.

Pretty straightforward to support Williamsons actions, as described in this article, of making Covid bailout money dependent on those institutions supporting "free speech". A good next step is for that to be made a permanent requirement of taxpayer money.

That's what we do here: comment on the issues.

But i suspect you support the "non platforming" happening in many of our Universities.

Gavin Williamson has made an important step in requiring institutions to show their commitment to free speech before receiving a Covid bailout.

But this should be made a permanent requirement before educational institutions receive taxpayer funding. Free Speech needs to be defined and delivering it should be a prerequisite for continuing taxpayer support.

If the Fascist Left want to oppose such a Free Speech objective then let them. We are ready for the debate and it will expose them as the anti democratic, totalitarians that they are.

Good to be able to agree with you. We need to define "free speech" and only allow taxpayers money to go to educational establishments that deliver it.

Yes let the justice system take its course. And best not to read the left wing twitter feeds this morning which are alive with comments showing bad taste and bad judgement.
