Waiting in the wings for @andrewdoyle_com’s #FreeSpeechNation on @GBNEWS. I’m on after 8pm discussing the attempted censorship of pro-life societies on campus, and why pro-choicers must support #freespeech - even for those who want to deny our freedom.

When did believing in biological sex become a thoughtcrime? Was lockdown the only option? Why is the government making gas bills even more expensive? @Tom_Slater_ @FraserMyers and @Ella_M_Whelan on the spiked podcast: spiked-online.com/podcast-ep…

Remember when all those Labour MP women posed in front of the Millicent Fawcett statue? Yeah well when courage calls it seems they only answer when it’s safe to do so. This is what women standing up for women looks like. More power to you @Fox_Claire
Off to @SussexUni this evening to speak at an event organised by @Liberate_Debate Sussex. We must have the courage to defend #freespeech and academic freedom - for @Docstockk and every other person who’s been threatened or silenced for voicing their views. Wish me luck.

The government is launching a new ‘888’ emergency number and mobile app to track women’s journeys. Why? Women are not in danger in public spaces. We need to stop stoking panic, says @ella_m_whelan spiked-online.com/2021/10/13…

"It used to be a maxim of union politics that dignity and respect cannot depend on handing more power to those in power." This is great by @TimandraHarknes on UCU's treatment of Kathleen Stock. unherd.com/2021/10/the-hound…

The ability of even the most inept politicians to fail upwards on to the supranational circuit is astounding. That this news comes on the same day we have been talking again about this man’s policy of playing Covid Russian Roulette with care homes is a particularly sick joke
Honoured to be appointed United Nations Special Representative. I’ll be working with the @UN @ECA_OFFICIAL to help African economic recovery from the pandemic and promote sustainable development.

'It's the kind of disregard for an older generation that has infected politics for you know, 10-20 years now.' Ella Whelan says politicians have been treating older people as a 'burden'.

Is grievance being manufactured? Your identity contradicts my reality. Is identity organic, defined, adopted and/or validated? Big sociopolitical #identity questions with @Furedibyte @rakibehsan @Ella_M_Whelan #Battlefest @instofideas

The Sarah Everard murder has been used to suggest women are in constant danger. This is untrue and debilitating. This feminism of fear will not liberate us, writes @ella_m_whelan spiked-online.com/2021/10/07…
