Bannon's Oxford Union appearance sparks anger

Students have criticised a decision by the Oxford Union to invite Steve Bannon to speak to its members tomorrow.

The former White House strategist's appearance has sparked anger on social media.

The students' 'Oxford Stand Up To Racism' group on Facebook complained the Oxford Union is giving a platform to a far-right speaker and legitimising racism.

Stephen Horvath, president of the Oxford Union, said the event provides an opportunity for members to hear from an individual who has been at the centre of the rise in right-wing populism as well as to critically question and debate his ideas and rhetoric.
