The Jeremy Vine show – Safe Space Debate with Kate Smurthwaite and Eve Livingston

Last week I appeared on Jeremy Vine’s radio 2 show debating with Kate Smurthwaite (who was no-platformed by Goldmsiths Student Union) about safe space and whether it’s a threat to free speech. (If you’re in any doubt I was obviously defending safe spaces and the rights of unions to protect their members and use their resources as they choose). Listen again below if you fancy:

If you’re interested in my (perhaps slightly more articulate and persuasive) thoughts on free speech and no platforming, I’ve written about them elsewhere on this blog.
