Free speech has been restricted at the University of Kent, where the Students Union banned a Kent UKIP Students Society social event. A Student Union representative felt that a proposed Crusader fancy dress outfit “caused discomfort and frustration among the Muslim community on campus”.
Crusaders rode out to the Holy Land to protect Christian pilgrims from highway men. They were truly brave heroes, and their knights outfits, emblazoned with the St. George’s Cross, the flag of England, are often worn at cricket matches.
An email sent to Kent UKIP Students Chairman Joe Simons said that the event was banned and with threat disband the UKIP society.
Reece Coombes, a candidate for Young Independence deputy said, “The event, which was a satirical commemoration of the First Crusade, invited attendees to don ‘crusader attire’ and encouraged ‘infidels’ to attend, in what was a poke of fun at the raging political correctness of modern students and universities.”
