Free speech campaigners welcome Boris’s war on woke after PM reveals 'cancel culture' victims denied platforms by universities can now seek compensation in courts

Free speech campaigners have tonight welcomed Boris Johnson's war on woke after he unveiled a new law forcing universities to protect freedom of speech.

The Higher Education (Freedom of Speech) Bill will aim to end the so-called 'no platforming' of speakers and academics on campuses.

Regulator the Office for Students will get the power to fine institutions and student unions for breaching new duties designed to foster 'a culture of open and robust intellectual debate'.
