The actor Liam Neeson has been erased from Queen's University prospectus and Queen's University, a bastion of free speech, is refusing to explain why. Inside information brought to the Nolan Show has been told that Neeson was scheduled to be in this years prospectus, but an instruction was given for him to be removed. Queen's has promised the BBC they would provide a comment, and then u-turned twice, deciding to remain tight lipped. Is the university trying to distance itself from Liam Neeson on the back of those comments? In the 2019 prospectus for Queen's, Liam Neeson appeared in the University's "Heritage and Heroes" section. He's not there in the 2020 version. He was also in three other parts of the 2019 prospectus. They are also gone from the 2020 version. The Holywood star found himself at the centre of a racism row last month after admitting that in the 1980s, he wanted to kill a black person when he found out a close friend had been raped. Stephen got reaction from commentators Malachi O'Doherty, Ruth Dudley Edwards and Amanda Ferguson.
