Milo Yiannopoulos Lecture Shut Down After Pressure From U.K. Government

Article here. Excerpt:

'A lecture by controversial Breitbart editor and “alt-right” personality Milo Yiannopoulos at Canterbury’s Simon Langton Grammar School for Boys was shut down after pressure from the United Kingdom’s Department of Education.

Yiannopoulos is an alumnus of Langston, but was expelled for what he has characterized as “absolutely outrageous behavior.” Nonetheless, the school’s leadership have expressed disappointment at the cancellation, saying that opposition came entirely from outside the school.

“This decision was taken following contact from the Department For Education’s counter extremism unit, the threat of demonstrations at the school by organised groups and members of the public and our overall concerns for the security of the school site and the safety of our community,” said head teacher Matthew Baxter in a statement.'
