    Curious what people's opinions on campus censorship is, the NUS no platform policy and the fact that the NUS is in fact ruled by minorities and the fascist regressive left/cultural marxists that do not respect the culture of debate/freedom of speech and wants to create 'safe spaces' (read: uninformed, unintelligent hugboxes of circlejerking rather than confronting facts and issues in the real world).

    It's quite bad in leeds, many things that have a remote chance of offending anyone is banned on campus.

    Have a look at this article -- http://www.independent.co.uk/student...-a6818896.html

    And this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LvvQJ_zsL1U

    Bill Maher and Richard Dawkins discuss the regressive left.

    Like I said, the regressive left needs to go sooner rather than later, I really can't stand the amount of censorship on campus any longer. Censorship is the first step in the long and dark road to fascism. Being shouted down as a bigot/racist for holding views/opinions that are different is all the regressive left can do, and needs to do, because you can't argue with a ethnic minority person in charge yelling these things at a white person, and it's an epidemic that is threatening our campuses.

    I have to laugh when people start complaining about students union politics being "the road to fascism".

    I seemed to get through uni without being bothered about the on campus politics, there were plenty of other things to do.

    It's a worrying trend... one thing I'm really unsure of is this idea of 'safe spaces.' Real life doesn't allow for people to just hide from their problems and views they oppose, challenge them and beat them.
