Luke Tryl, president of the Oxford Union, has caused a storm with his decision to invite anti-Semitic historian David Irving and British National Party leader Nick Griffin to a debate in Oxford.

In the run-up to the debate, Tryl and Brendan O’Neill, the editor of spiked, were invited on to Peter Tatchell’s online television show Talking with Tatchell to discuss free speech, extremism and whether ‘No Platform’ is ever justified.
