The Saint, the award-winning tabloid student newspaper at the University of St Andrews, has been banned by the student union..
I gather from Bishop Hill that once the staff have "staff have undergone diversity awareness training" they will allowed to publish provided that "the editor should in future send each issue to
the university's press office to check that it is not in breach of discrimination policy before the paper goes to the printers.".
All for joking about dyslexic Welshmen or something!
Students just don't get Free Speech do they?
It wasn't much different 25 years ago when I nearly got rusticated from College for allowing the Sports Editor of the newspaper to pad out his column with the results from the "Rape a Whale" contest (No rape actually occured or animals hurt during the contest) and the "Knock a Rabbi Out of Bed Tournament". Seemed harmless to me.....
