Independent school parents attack free speech
Parents of pupils attending Latymer Upper School in Hammersmith, London are attempting to stop Nigel Farage from giving a speech at the school, the Evening Standard has reported.
The parents are reported to be coordinating their action via a WhatsApp group aiming at silencing the former Brexit Party and Ukip leader.
The invitation by the school’s John Stuart Mill Society still looks likely to go ahead however as the school has commented: “We recognise the concerns our community may have, but we feel it is important our students are exposed to and have an opportunity to challenge a range of views across the political spectrum.”
Farage told the Evening Standard: “Wealthy London parents who work in the corporate world clearly want their children to be blinkered.”
