EDL leader uninvited
10:00am Thursday 12th September 2013 in News
The Oxford Union has reconsidered its decision to invite the leader of the English Defence League to a debate on patriotism.
The society said security costs involved in hosting Tommy Robinson, pictured, would be significant and, as it was unable to cover them, it would not “formally” invite him.
An invitation to the head of the right-wing group was made on Twitter in July.
The debate is scheduled to take place on November 14.
