Protecting our right to boycott

I completely agree that we must retain the right to boycott, and that institutions must retain the right to boycott if they so choose.

It’s clear that any planned anti-boycott’ bill is a piecemeal knee jerk reaction to the Boycott, Divest, Sanctions, boycott, (BDS) thus it is not a sincere piece of legislation by any stretch of the imagination.

At every opportunity I’ve voted against any bills which seek to prevent boycotts, and in support of any wise amendments to them. I have also spoken out against such moves, in public, inside and outside of Parliament.

I fully oppose the introduction of this awful bill. And I will continue to do so.
