Conservative Society receives formal apology from Lincoln SU

The University of Lincoln Students’ Union has formally apologised to the Conservative Society, after their social media accounts were temporarily suspended last month.

In a letter to the society, SU President Sammi Storey said: “On behalf of the governing body of the Students’ Union, I formally apologise for any impact that the suspension of your social media account between the 4th – 7th March 2017 had.”

The news follows an emergency ASM held on March 20, which passed a motion on freedom of speech that called for the SU to formally apologise to the Conservative Society.

Nearly 90 students attended the meeting – the highest turnout this academic year – after a petition calling for the ASM reached more than 70 signatures at a free speech protest.

In a post on their Twitter page, the society said: “We are very happy we have finally received an apology from the SU. Better late than never.”
