Abstract

By writing this I add to the oxygen of publicity for the Oxford Union students who have invited Nick Griffin and David Irving to a debate. That’s a shame because at the heart of this is the fact that the Oxford Union is not just a forum for open debate. In truth its officers are also motivated by the career enhancement it offers. And all the fuss about inviting two such deeply offensive people to speak is part and parcel of shining up their CVs. Of course, the two speakers are also delighted at the chance to revive their sad little careers which seem to have consisted largely of winding up liberals and frightening people from ethnic minorities.
