CONTROVERSIAL right-wing commentator Milo Yiannopoulos will speak at Parliament House in Canberra today despite an attempt by the Greens to ban him.
Yiannopoulos will speak in the exclusive private dining rooms at 11am at the invitation of crossbench senator David Leyonhjelm.
Media, politicians and staffers have been invited to attend.
Extra security measures are expected to be in place when he arrives. A fight broke out between his supporters and protesters at Yiannopoulos’s event in Melbourne on Monday and police were forced to use pepper spray.
Senator Leyonhjelm flagged security arrangements are likely to be beefed up for the visit.
“I wouldn’t call myself a disciple of him by any means,” Senator Leyonhjelm told AAP, adding he didn’t agree with all his controversial views. He expects Yiannopoulos to embark on an “outrage campaign” to stir up the politically correct.
