Politically correct universities 'are killing free speech'

• telegraph.co.uk

British universities have become too politically correct and are stifling free speech by banning anything that causes the least offence to anyone, a group of leading academics warns on Saturday.

A whole generation of students is being denied the "intellectual challenge of debating conflicting views" because self-censorship is turning campuses into over-sanitised "safe spaces", they say.

Their intervention comes as an Oxford college considers removing a historic statue of Cecil Rhodes, one of its alumni and benefactors, because he is regarded as the founding father of apartheid in South Africa.
