MPs join group to fight cancel culture | Scotland

A new campaign group, supported by high profile politicians, academics and religious figures, is being set up to oppose the emergence of an “intimidatory” cancel culture and the censoring of controversial views.

Joanna Cherry, the SNP MP and QC, Jenny Lindsay, the award-winning poet, Lindsay Paterson, a professor of education policy, and Murdo Fraser MSP, the former deputy leader of the Scottish Conservatives, have given their support to the Free Speech Union Scotland, which will launch later this month.

Others who have joined the organization’s inaugural advisory council are Iain Macwhirter, the journalist and former rector of the University of Edinburgh, Peter Kearney, the director of the Catholic Media Office and Jim Sillars, the former SNP deputy leader.
