Toby Young, director-general of the Free Speech Union, told MailOnline: “The Oxford Student Union has no business vetting the work of student journalists and any attempt at censorship might well fall foul of the Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill, which extends the legal duty to uphold free speech on campus to students’ unions. Student leaders should be standing up for the speech rights of student journalists, not trying to muzzle them.”
