Police are considering beefing up security at the Cambridge Union after the man tipped to be the future Prime Minister and other controversial figures were announced to speak at the debating society. Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg is among the line-up for speakers at the Union along with former American Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders. Transgender champion Caitlyn Jenner of Keeping up with the Kardashians fame will also grace the debating society floor.
And The Mooch , Anthony Scaramucci, who lasted as Trump s communications director for just 10 days, will also feature in the line up. The Union has seen police action over protests before including during the appearance of controversial broadcaster Katie Hopkins and French Presidential candidate Marine Le Pen.
And there were protests when former IMF chief accused of sexually assaulting a chambermaid was bundled through a side door as he arrived to speak to the Union in 2012. Dominique Strauss-Kahn was met by a crowd of about 200 student protesters objecting to his speech.
Security was tight at the sold-out event and spectators were not admitted unless they handed over phones and agreed to be searched. And protesters laid siege to the Union as Marine Le Pen spoke inside . Chants of Nazi scum off our streets rang out as about 150 protesters assembled outside the debating society building.
A Cambridgeshire police spokesman said: We work very closely with Cambridge Union and seek to police events proportionately.
