University making ‘cancel’ threat to 19th century scientist over his race theories has multiple ties to Chinese military specialists
- Imperial considering proposal to rename building honouring Thomas Huxley
- University also considering removing bust of him after independent report
- Spokesperson said the university is ‘not cancelling anyone’
A university debating whether to ‘cancel’ a 19th Century scientist over his theories on race has close links with some of the world’s most sinister regimes.
Imperial College London has established multiple ties to Chinese military specialists as well as forging relationships with Qatar and Saudi Arabia.
Imperial is considering a proposal to rename a campus building honouring biologist Thomas Huxley and removing a bust of him. It follows an independent report that claimed an essay by Huxley on the link between race and intelligence ‘fed the dangerous and false ideology of eugenics’.

The Mail on Sunday has uncovered more than a dozen projects that show Imperial scientists working on potential military technologies.
Conservative MP Iain Duncan Smith, co-chairman of the Inter-Parliamentary Alliance on China, said: ‘Imperial is seeking to ‘cancel’ a world-famous scientist but it has no qualms about forging close links with a Chinese regime guilty of genocide.’
Imperial last night said: ‘This bizarre attempt to connect Imperial’s open dialogue about its history with international scientific research is totally misleading and baseless.
‘Imperial is not ‘cancelling’ anyone.’
