Exclusive: Young Independence donates £1,984 to member’s free speech battle

in News/Uncategorised

A member of the UK Independence Party’s youth wing is raising money to help launch a legal case against his suspension from the University of Central Lancashire.

Sebastian Walsh, 19, was in his first year at UCLAN studying a BA in Children, Schools and Families when the university suspended him after remarks he made during a mid-class discussion. Walsh voiced the opinions that the UK is being “Islamified”, that Halal meat is “violent and barbaric” and those who do not have legal statuses in the UK should “not be given free handouts of our services.”

Walsh has launched a page on crowdjustice.com in the hopes of raising £20,000 in order to launch a Judicial Review of UCLAN’s decision to suspend him, which has left Walsh unable to attend classes and put his career aspirations in child protection at risk.

“The suspension from the university seemed appropriate to the staff for simply speaking an opinion,” Walsh told Type News. “These discussions was brought-up in context by the students but I’m the one who got disciplined. Freedom of speech is under threat at the University of Central Lancashire.”

UKIP member and YouTube personality Count Dankula has released a video on his channel about Walsh’s story, which has helped raise awareness of the case. “I’ve appealed the outcome as it’s unfair and biased. I know they will not let me back in because of the mass reports that have been released into the public.” His friends in Young Independence – the youth wing – have also given generously.

“Anyone of us could have been Sebastian. Our lives could have been taken from us due to our political opinions,” said Sebastian Cheek, Treasurer of YI. “If we truly believe what we say then it’s time to put our money where our mouth is, which is why we’ve donated £1,984 to Seb’s case. Today we have expressed our commitment to free speech. We hope others will do the same.”

At the time of publication, Walsh has raised £9,419 with 28 days remaining to give to his cause.

Type News launches – a message from the Editor-in-Chief

in Uncategorised

Type News is the newest infantry to enter the battle ground on the war against the mainstream media. We want to report the news that others do not as well as report what you have heard but without the elitist bias.

News online, in the papers and on radio and television is getting faker and more agenda-driven towards globalism. Alternative media exists because the mainstream mocks, scorns, ridicules and belittles those who don’t share their world view, and those people are sick of it. We want to make a difference.

That being said, we don’t wish to be just another alternative media site. Whilst we will devote time to stories regarding Brexit, the Trump Presidency and populist politics in the West, we won’t stop there. We aim to dedicate ourselves to catering to other tastes, reporting on the economy, sport, the arts and culture, as well as making sure all major news stories are reported.

There’ll be small changes along the way whilst we get to grips with the day-to-day running of a news website to ensure that you get the best from us.

If you are of a more independent type of mind, Type News is for you.

Jack Oliver Smith,

Editor-in-Chief, Type News
