New piece in Times Higher Ed on Education (No. 2) Act 1986 and the Tories

With Gavin Williamson proposing new legislation to compel student unions to maintain free speech on campus, Times Higher Education has published an opinion piece by myself on the attempt by the Thatcher government in 1986 to ban ‘no platforming’ with the Education (No. 2) Act. You can find it here and a longer version on Patreon here.
