Justin Webb interviews Toby Young and Trevor Phillips, BBC Radio 4 Today, 24th Feb 2020.

We’re leading the charge against thought police

The threats to free speech are not imaginary. One is the confusion of reasoned criticism with hatred, so that any principled dissent from fashionable dogma is immediately slapped down as “phobic”.

Prof Nigel Biggar, The Times, 24th Feb 2020.

Free cheers for Toby’s free speech union

Free speech keeps the world healthy and moving forward. Without it, our horizons contract, our thoughts narrow and our ability to test the utility or harm of ideas vanishes. Nonsense and evil go unchallenged.

Ollie Wright, The Conservative Woman, 10th Feb 2020.
