I would have gone if I could, to see how she accounts for her views and deals with any challenges. I'm not interested in silencing people whose views I disagree with. I want to engage them in a debate and expose the holes in their arguments. Anyone who protests will just be playing into the hands of the alt right victim narrative. If free speech is limited to those whose views we seem 'sound', It's not free speech.

Quite right, EOL. The trouble is that it's difficult to see what kind of "debate" will be possible where there is no moderator or panel representing other points of view. Ms Hopkins will have no problem dealing with hecklers: no-one in the audience is going to be entering into anything remotely resembling a debate with her. So free speech should not be limited, but once you've afforded a platform to someone whose views are "difficult" then you need to accord the same to a representative of "other views" surely? As it stands, we seem to have given her an unopposed platform.

She's selling her book, that's all. There is no-one to challenge her statements and absolutely no chance of "debating" anything.

Say NO to hate speech in Lewes by joining like-minded intolerant DFL's in protesting against Hatey Katie's (no childish name calling) acceptance of invitation to speak in Lewes.
