Toby Young, General Secretary of the Free Speech Union, told MailOnline: “The practice of publicly shaming your intellectual opponents and calling for them to lose their livelihoods is absolutely abhorrent and has no place in universities. Academics should be free to dissent from prevailing campus orthodoxies without fear of punishment. For Santander and the Open University to be promoting cancel culture is deeply irresponsible. Academics should be encouraged to tolerate people whose views they disagree with, not to demand their defenestration.”
