Cambridge cancels Savage debate
British society cites 'legal issues' just days before event
October 7, 2009
Just one week before Michael Savage was scheduled to debate via video link at the Cambridge Union in England, the co-presidents of the two-century-old society informed the top-rated radio host they have canceled the event.
As WND reported, the invitation from the Cambridge Union Society for the Oct. 15 debate was issued in July after Savage was banned from entering the United Kingdom by Prime Minister Gordon Brown's government along with Muslim extremists and leaders of hate groups.

Domercq and Laurence pointed to problems with the cost and feasibility of setting up the necessary video link, but they also cited "legal issues."
