I remember various rows about the issue of “no platform” from when I was a student. I am disappointed, but not surprised, to hear today that they are still going on.
I am more disappointed to see a number of Lib Dems, some of them normally quite sensible, joining in with the nonsense. I’d almost got myself annoyed enough to write something about the issue. Then I saw that James Graham has written something that expresses almost exactly what I would have wanted to say. I couldn’t do any better or add anything useful, so I won’t.
Argument for argument’s sake is not productive.
