The Conservative Party's free speech reforms are staggeringly hypocritical

Labour to vote against Tory 'hate speech' bill | The Guardian |

Government plans to "safeguard" free speech in universities would allow Holocaust deniers, anti-vaccination groups and conspiracy theorists to take legal action against higher education organisations that denied them a platform to air their views, Labour said last night.
Announcing that its MPs would vote against the higher education (freedom of speech) bill, which has its second reading in the Commons this week, Labour claimed that it was a hugely divisive and harmful "hate speech bill".

Universities UK and the National Union of Students have also expressed grave concerns about the bill, suggesting it is wildly disproportionate.
