    He's been banned in Britain, but the vaunted two-century-old Cambridge Union Society in England has invited talk-radio host Michael Savage to participate in a debate next month.

    As WND has reported, Britain's former home secretary, Jacqui Smith, announced in May that Savage was on a list of banned figures that include Muslim extremists and leaders of hate groups. Savage has threatened a lawsuit if his name is not removed.


    The invitation letter, signed by society presidents Julien Domercq and Jonathan Laurence, says the Cambridge Union has been following Savage's case "with great interest" and believes he is "more qualified than anyone to talk about the subject of political correctness in American and Britain."


    The student society at the University of Cambridge wants Savage to speak for the opposition in an Oct. 15 debate titled "This House Believes Political Correctness is Sane and Necessary."


    If there is no change in his legal status before the debate, the letter states, he could address the society via a live video link.


    Savage told WND he will likely accept the challenge and debate via video.


    "Those who would defend political correctness, i.e., speech-control, should visit North Korea or Cuba for examples of a "harmonious state," he said.


    The society presidents told Savage in their letter "the decision to ban you has caused quite a stir and we are keen to know how your situation progresses, especially now that Jacqui Smith has resigned from Cabinet."


    The Cambridge Union Society, founded in 1815, has hosted the likes of British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and American presidents Ronald Reagan and Theodore Roosevelt.
