A society that trades freedom of speech for emotional safety will soon find out it has neither.
A new YouGov poll shows that those who prioritise ‘stopping offensive and hateful speech’ beat those who prefer ‘protecting free speech’ by 43 to 38 per cent. And the difference getrs bigger the younger the group.
Going further into the breakdown, it is mainly women, Labour voters (Left leaning) and 18- to 24-year-olds that don't prioritise free speech.
