Sky News Debate: Should The UK Ban Pick-Up Artist?

US self-styled pick-up artist Daryush Valizadeh, also known as Roosh V, has come under fire after suggesting in blog posts that rape should be legalised so long as it’s done on private property, and that men should date a woman with an eating disorder.

It comes as Valizadeh cancelled a controversial series of events in the UK, claiming he could not guarantee the safety of those wanting to attend. But should the 36-year-old American be banned from entering the UK as a result of his opinions and actions?
