Cambridge student Sophie Watson at tcs makes an eloquent case against a policy that is presented as protecting free speech but actually undermines one of its central conditions: tolerance. Well-done to those defending freedom of speech and arguing that all students and staff must be allowed to make their own judgments:
The policy’s vagueness makes it worse than useless. It means that those with the power to decide whether or not to enforce it in each individual case can effectively decide which ideas are open for discussion, and which are not. This is exactly the kind of scenario that free speech legislation is supposed to protect us from.
