Paypal sparks outrage after shutting down account of Britain’s free-speech union

U.S. financial tech company PayPal has been accused of a sinister form of cancel culture after its decision to shut down the accounts of the Free Speech Union, a U.K body that defends and supports members who are unfairly targeted or discriminated against by their employers for exercising their legal right to free speech.

The union announced via its social media platforms late on Tuesday evening that PayPal was blocking payments to the body through its platform for alleged violations of the company’s acceptable use policy.

Toby Young, the founder of the Free Speech Union, explained he had received an email from PayPal explaining that his personal account had been frozen, with a £600 balance effectively confiscated with no method to withdraw it.
