A FAR right student organisation is working on setting up a foothold in the UK.

And members of the group are coming to Brighton this week.

Charlie Kirk, founder of Turning Point USA (TPUSA), with links to Donald Trump’s administration, will be joining Sussex University Conservative Society on Wednesday for a political debate.

The 25-year-old American activist has posted online, saying: “Illegal immigration is a serious threat to our country, 90 per cent of all heroin comes across the border, we support the shutdown for a wall.”

Others attending include TPUSA speaker Candace Owens and members of Turning Point UK (TPUK), an offshoot to Mr Kirk’s project, which started in the UK a few months ago.

Joel Chilaka, 22, speaker for TPUK and a member of the Sussex University Conservative Society, said: “We are so proud to have Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens coming to speak.

“We want to push this idea of debate and encourage university campuses across the UK to take part in proper political discussion.

“It will be interesting to see if people agree with our views.”

TPUK’s beliefs run parallel to its American counterparts, whose publications include Capitalism Cures, Game Of Loans and Ten Ways Fossil Fuels Improve Our Daily Lives.

The group strives for free markets, personal responsibility, limited government and freedom of speech.

Its website states: “It is now more important than ever to defend our values against a dogmatic left-wing political climate, education system and radical Labour Party which sympathises with terrorists, wishes to disarm the nation and whose shadow chancellor of the exchequer, if elected, would bankrupt the economy.”

TPUK’s event has been rejected from most locations in the UK, apart from Brighton, Nottingham and London.

Mr Chalika, who studies medicine at Sussex University, said: “We are on the right side of politics and we are not ashamed about that.

“People have the right to give their own opinion, and it’s disheartening to see people who think it’s hurtful to be in the same room as someone just because of what they have expressed before. This is what Turning Point UK wants to solve in this country.”

The group said those “sick of snowflakes spouting nonsense”, can join the movement.

The debate takes place at 7pm in the Hilton Hotel, King’s Road, Brighton.

Tickets are £2 for students and £3 for non-students through eventbrite.
