U.S. Free Speech Watch – Part 2
Much was ignored about Michael Savage’s banning from Britain by their then Home Secretary Jacqui Smith. Odd enough that he was added among known murderers, terrorists and criminals as unwelcome.
So it was welcome to see the Cambridge Union Society invite Michael Savage to participate in a debate via video link. Now the Cambridge Union Society has cancelled the invitation, stating:
Due to a variety of technical, financial and other logistic issues, we have taken the highly reluctant decision to cancel Michael Savage’s video linked appearance in a debate. Given the variety of speaker and debate events we plan to run, our budget is highly stretched and we did not think that the £5000 plus that the debate as a whole would have cost, following Savage’s demands, would be a productive use of members’ money.
