The State

More than 90 per cent of UK universities are restricting free speech, a shocking new report has found.

The Free Speech University Ranking (FSUR), by Spiked magazine, states that 21 universities have banned speakers from attending debates or lectures in the last year.

Twenty universities have also banned the sale of one or more newspaper on their campuses.

Censorsed

According to Spiked, 63.5 per cent of universities “actively censored speech and expression” in the last year.

This represents a sixteen per cent rise on the previous year and an increase of more than 68 per cent since 2015.
